pictures help, you cannot assume everyone reading knows the character you speak of.

Vogue has had glove patterns available from time to time.

This is a two part answer -

For Kula and K's one glove - I would recommend buying black gloves then attaching strips in craft foam or plastic film painted gold. You can seal craft foam with glue then coat it with rub n buff to make is shiny. For K's other glove - buy a black driving glove or golf glove and cut the fingers off.

If you want to make gloves from scratch - they are very tricky but it can be done. It requires a lot of hand sewing and test fitting. I have a lot of sewing experience - it took 5 or 6 tries on my first glove to get the right fit. I've made a few more in different material so I'm getting better at it. This is the pattern I've used:
