The main attribute of the costume is Freddy Krueger's glove, you can buy it or make it yourself. The article will talk about several manufacturing options.
To make this accessory, you need to prepare:
- leather glove (doesn't matter, left or right);
- wire with a diameter of five millimeters, a hundred centimeters long;
- adhesive tape;
- adhesive plaster;
- satin ribbon;
- acrylic paint to match the glove;
- your skillful hands.
How to make a Freddy Krueger glove
Take the wire and cut it into five pieces. Each segment should be fifteen centimeters long. Sharpen the end of the wire with a file. But not worth itget involved. The accessory being crafted should be intimidating, not a dangerous weapon. Then bend the opposite end of the wire according to the length of your finger.
Take a glove and put it on. Attach a piece of wire to your finger (on the back of your hand). Wrap tape or tape soaked in glue from fingertip to base. You can attach the claws in a different way. To do this, at the end of each finger of the glove, make holes that are equal to the diameter of the wire. Secure the wire to your fingers with adhesive tape or adhesive tape. And carefully put on the glove, inserting the claws into the holes. Do the same with the rest of your fingers.
Take the paint and paint the fingers wrapped in tape. But do not paint the wire, as it can oxidize and rust. You can cover the claws with steel paint for protection. The mobility of the hand in such gloves is limited. Fingers are in a bent state. If you want the hand to be more mobile, then attach the claws to the middle, and preferably to the upper phalanx. But reduce the length of the wire, otherwise it will not hold well.
This is how Freddy Krueger's handmade glove turned out. To give color to the product, you can attach a red thread to the tip of the claw. When working, be careful not to cut yourself.

Attach the finished "blades" to the leather glove. To do this, use tape. For everything to work out correctly, attach your nails to the already worn glove. Next, paint the tape to match the accessory. You can use adhesive plaster, it is easier to color. Once everything is dry, Freddy Krueger's glove is ready!

- Wrap the workpiece with the bottom part.
