Finished Iron Man Arm Repulsor Hand by kay-sama Finished Iron Man Arm Repulsor Hand by kay-sama
So, the hand for Tony's Repulsor arm is pretty much finished...just need to let the paint dry and tack acouple of places down with a little more hot glue.
I'm extremly happy with how this came out. I LOVE this thing and am uber excited to wear it for Anime LA 2013. :3
Best part about this prop? Hella cheap~!


How I made this

What you'll need:
:bulletred:A pair of red gloves
:bulletred:A "Stick N Click" LED tap light
:bulletred:Ellectrical tape
:bulletred:Red Spry Paint
:bulletred:Silver Spray Paint
:bulletred:Silver Acrylic paint
:bulletred:Poster Borard
:bulletred:Craft Foam
:bulletred:Hot Glue
:bulletred:Sottering Iron
:bulletred:Ellectrical Wire
:bulletred:Scisors and/or Exsacto Knife

Cost: About

So, I started off with a $5 pair of red gloves I found at my local walmart. (Make sure they fit snuggly around your hand, if you want the light function to work propperly...)
Next, I took appart the tap light and used an exsacto knife to cut away the pastic center with the LED pannel. (Please be very carfull not to damage the ellectircal pannel while doing this...otherwise, you light will no longer work.)
Doing this allowed me to take the LED and sepperate it from the battery pack.
See this --->
I wrapped the Ellectical pannel (except the LED) in ellectical tape to keep it a little more safe from sweat. Thie was just for my personal prefferance...since it is going to be used for a convention. You probably won't need to worry about this step, if you won't be wearing it for long periods of time.
After that, I clipped off the old wires and sottered new wired from the battery pack to the LED pannel long enough to wrapp around my hand and out from the bottom of the glove (Allowing me to glue the battery pack to the outside back of the glove)
Next, I cut a small hole in the palm of the glove just big enough to fit the LED light though and fed said LED though the hole. Then after slipping it though, I glued the reflective cone both around the LED light and to the outside of the glove. Then, the plastic cap over the reflective cone.
See this--->
This fixture (if your gloves are the right size) should make the LED light up when you extend your fingers. :3 My favorite funtion of this build.
Next, use a refferance to cut out the pieces you need from poster board and craft foam. I used craft foam in the placed I know will need a little more room to move...such as the inner side of the fingers and around the thum and wrist.
All of the pieces once cut out and put together were glued to the glove. One side of the lazer pack of the back of the hand is fastened with velcro to make it possible to change the batteries.
I taped off the LED light with painters tape and gave the whole thing a good two to three coats of red spray paint.
After said coats were allied and dried, I sprayed silver spray paint onto a wad of toilet paper and used it to apply scratch marks where I figured it was more likely to get scratched up.
I wanted it to look like it had been well used, so I added a lot of, it looks like it's been through a war. xDD
With that, I added Silver acrylic paint to the craft foam strap around the wrist and the bottom cuff of the glove.

Well, that's pretty much it. Sorry if I didn't go too deep into detail...most of this was winged, so I don't really have patterns. ^^'
I searched google and looked at some other peoples builds to see what they did. So, that is what I suggest if you wanna make one of these, too. :3
I will also post some more detailed picture of this puppy, later. Ya know, once it's completely dry.

Peace out, all! Don't forget to comment and tell me what you think.
