Okay, i don't think there was a thread about this.
But, i found a pair of Nylon gloves online, and i was like "HEEYYYY! This looks good for Matt cosplay!"
So I was wondering. Is Nylon good for a pair of gloves?
I can't exactly think of what it feels like right now.

Nylon is simply a fibre and is used in everything from the lightest stretch fabric to heavy duty canvas for outdoor bags and camping stuff ;) So a link to the gloves you saw would help a lot ;)

Elbow-length gloves are too long for Matts gloves. I suggest searching for motorcycle gloves.

i think that the gloves you listed in your first post are better then the ones in the second post.

Just say no to nylon. WAY too many Matt cosplayers get nylon gloves, and it looks horrible in photos. Satin-y is not the look you wanna go for. I HIGHLY recommend getting leather. That's what I use. It's durable, won't snag like nylon, and looks great in photos.

Granted nylon gloves are cheaper, but paying the extra money for leather is so worth it.

Hmm, okayy.
If I can somhow find some money for gloves after wig/goggles, i'll be sure to find leather.
OR pleather?
Will that work? Hmm..

I don't see why pleather wouldn't work. XD

eBay really helps with finding the gloves! That's where I finally found mine, and at a decent price too. =3 That's where I found my boots too. eBay is just generally good LOL.

Since Matt's costume is fairly simple, it really shows when you go the extra mile to get accurate items. Simple things like getting nice gloves and a good wig will really make your costume look great! =D
