These were done for
just in the nick of time for Anime Expo
they have removable wooden blades for making transporting around easier, and i made a spare one in case one broke. Also made a more basic set from Expanded PVC (and a spare) should a convention not allow the wooden ones. The bands include padding so they won't roll around on the wrists.
They open and close on the side with a wedge like locking system that proved effective, despite my not knowing how i was gonna connect them, and just started cutting into them while fingercrossing. a magnet was added to help secure them further.
There's a deerskin strap that wraps around the hand, and held in place by velcro. made sure the fabrics were removable for cleaning.
Sincere apologies for the blurry photos of David in cosplay, a lot of photos from the weekend wound up sacrificial offerings to the focus gods :\
the sculpey "spiders" (please refer to the july wipset) were later heated with a heatgun and wrapped around the bracelets when they became a bit flexable. the gun wasted no time browning the edges of some of them though lol
