Here is a tutorial as to how I made my Irken claws for my future Invader Zim-themed costume. :D

Download for full size. It's big. :XD:

You don't have to link back to me if you use this (although I'd be delighted if you did), and I would love, love, LOVE to see your creations, if you make any. So please comment (here, profile, wherever) or send me a note with a link to your work!!


I only own the DIY-style design of these gloves,

Thank you so much! My ten year old brother's being Zim this year and we can use all the help we can get!

Thanks for this tutorial, the gloves look well made and very easy to assemble. I hope my friend :iconfreakshow4000: uses this.

Fantastic tut.

Wow, thanks!
I've been meaning to redo it, actually. *sigh* But ah well. Glad to be of some help, hope it turns out good! Are they doing a Zim cosplay too?
nekofluffybutt's avatar
Well at the moment no because they cant attend anime expo here in los angeles, so this is just for novelty. but thanks for the tut it was rather hard to find so really this is on of the only ones I fount ^^;

Aw, that's too bad... Well, good luck nonetheless. :D

hope so, i love how straight forward this, so that makes me happy. She's too great at instructions and I lose patience fast.
Nym-Akuma's avatar
Aw, well. I'm pretty impatient too- I've been known to get really psyched about things (anything from certain costume-making tasks to making tutorials (heh) to projects) and then get bored about fifteen minutes later because it's taking too long to do :XD:

OH DEAR xD well I will get her to do it and maybe have a set of my own!

Sweet! They're awesomely fun things to play around with when you have them on. I've put them on for the sole purpose of walking around and freaking out my little sister :XD:
P.S. If you want a little secret, they stay on better if you don't trim the bases once they're completely folded, albeit the fact that you can't unbend your fingers all the way... I figured that out AFTER I made the tutorial though. *sigh*

I'd be interested in trying to make this with all leather somehow, kinda tie in the lines nice and smooth. Great DIY though, couls be even a fun little kids project....while we all watch Invade Zim.
Nym-Akuma's avatar
Ooh, all leather would be even cooler! I'm not much of a leather-worker though, lol. Thank you!

Nym-Akuma's avatar
No problem! I hope it helps! Are you making an irken costume?
Yokume's avatar
Nope, I am making an Senri ( +Anima ) cosplay, and needed some help for the claws he have. Thanks to your tut it gave me an idea of how to do it ^^
