Allen Walker's Cursed Arm

So I'm cosplaying Allen for my next con and since I fear wearing his full uniform in mid August heat I figured I'd make this outfit (http://i27.tinypic.com/2csidcm.jpg) to wear under my uniform and I can just take the jacket off when I get too hot.

With that outfit I'm going to need to make Allen's full cursed arm...this time I can't get away with just a glove modeled to the look like his cursed hand that goes up a little past my wrist.
Now I'm kinda stumped on how I'd go about making his arm.

Here's some reference shots of his arm:

It got really hard looking for references...so I put in some fanart as refs too.

Any help would be appreciated. Please and thanks!

You could do something similar to what you have now, but with a longer glove. I believe that there exist latex gloves that go up almost all the way up the arm, and that could maybe be used as a base to make what you need. It's been a while since I've seen D.Gray Man so I'm not too familiar with the character, so I don't know if that would work or not.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I've been thinking of making a longer glove...my only hesitation with doing so is that gloves wrinkle and it'll make the arm look fake. But if I need to that'll be my last resort if I can't figure out any other ways.

I really outta not procrastinate...probably not gonna be able to get a really good quality arm with only 2 weeks till the con. >.>;

Any other suggestions?

I think if you made your own glove that was fit to your arm, instead of buying one in a predetermined size, it should work without too much wrinkling.

Get something with some stretch, but not too much or it might loosen by the end of the day.

I would personal go with body paint and add small latex prosthetic for the joints in the hand ... and acrylic nails/black nail polish. lol

This version of his arm is much more human looking and I wanted to do this version (if I can't finish my clown crown version) but I'm not the right body build to pull it off.

The glove however is easier to pre-make but you can pre-make prosthetic as well.
