Thank you so much for this! Making an arm, especially the fingers, for a cosplay has always been a huge pain to me and I have never had a good way of going about it so this really helps a ton!

Thanks for the help, RuffleButtCosplay. I'm in the process of building the gauntlets for the character I created for my novels (pictured in my avatar). How to do the fingertips was proving quite frustrating until I saw your tutorial here!

This is great! How do you keep them on your fingers? Do you glue them to your gloves?

RuffleButtCosplay may have another option for you, kandell, but I was intending on using Barge Cement. It can be used with soft, flexible materials like this. You can pick it up at Ace Hardware:…
thanks for this tutorial,this is so helpful~

Cool tutorials! I love how creators on the internet is demystifying making things and how more and more people are willing to share tips and tricks were as in the past it was like asking a magician how he/she did something and being met with a stone wall.

Cool stuff indeed, I'm sure this will help a lot of people out in becoming better crafters/makers.
