Hello, I have recently been adding upgrades to my clone wars Anakin and one thing that needs help are both gloves/bracers. I found a guy who makes the RoTs glove however he wanted over $300 for a set of gloves so that's out of my budget. Anyone know where to find the set of anyone good with making them?

It's interesting you mention this. I'm about to start drafting a new TCW glove set myself, since I was able to obtain the show models and noticed a lot of often missed details. I'll be starting off with pleather to avoid any costly mishaps, and go from there, if you'd like to keep updated. Others than the gloves Claudio used to make years ago (he's since dropped the TCW set, probably lack of interest), I don't know of anyone else who made them.

Yea keep me updated on that would love to fallow the build! Yea Claudio is the person I talked to who wanted to charge me the cost of two Rots gloves even tough the clone wars has less detail and the other is just a plain brown bracer.

There's actually much more than a bracer and an RotS style glove. The right glove isn't supposed to be the same glove as RotS, and not only are the two gloves mismatched designs, but colors as well. I've been gathering a ton of reference images for remaking thIs costume myself, throw me a pm later. Smile

Claudio can still make Clone Wars glove. Just email him, even though he no longer offers them on eBay. I'd say go with cowhide leather for more durability and longer lasting.

Weird cause I didn't pay over $300 for the set. I paid less than $200 for the set of glove. Are you sure you didn't ask for cowhide. Generally speaking, lambskins are usually more expensive than cowhide.

No that was the cheap option. He use to offer the set for like $150 but apritnly cost has gone way way up.

A lot of Claudio's prices have jumped in the last few years.his RotS cowhide glove just a few years ago was under a hundred, now it's almost $50 more. The TCW set used to be about 170 when he was still listing it, so...yeah, I just decided to build my own since the right glove is so different anyway.

I see this is from Feb. I acquired a TCW kit and am looking for a source to replace the gloves, should they get damaged or need to be replaced.

Was curious if you were able to get them made?
