Hey folks. I am trying to put together something that looks like Alex Louis Armstrong's signature gauntlets.

An approximation works for me, so I don't feel the need for a full-on commission piece quite yet. Looking for suggestions on what might get the job done here- a few that I am considering.

Metal (Correct Material, Much Different Style): [url]https://www.etsy.com/listing/227775935/larp-fantasy-medieval-costume-steel?ref=sr_gallery_39&ga_search_query=gauntlets&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery[/url]

Leather (Wrong Material, More Similar Style): [url]http://www.amazon.com/MMA-Fight-Gloves-Leather-Medium/dp/B00JTKRVJK/ref=sr_1_192?ie=UTF8&qid=1428388802&sr=8-192&keywords=open+palm+mma[/url]



I've never constructed anything before, so any sort of DIY would have to be pretty basic. Would be great to hear your thoughts. (Bonus points if you can suggest a good moustache and hair tuft!)

Thanks in advance!
