How to go about this glove-cuff thing?

Yeah, more help needed on this Kusanagi cosplay of mine. So, I need to get drafting the gloves, but this cuff and such on the wrist is stumping me. http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...ou-d42dn9l.png

I have a basic glove pattern that didn't come with any sort of alteration to the wrist, which I was planning to alter to use, so I'm not sure how to approach what looks like a padded-out completely round cuff that ALSO has some sort of fastener on it.

....actually, on the same vein, the same padded-out round pieces on the lower end of her jacket sleeves (http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/20...on-d5ffbzk.jpg) are equally confusing for figuring out what to make them out of/how to make them lay with the fabric taut over them in almost the middle of the sleeve. If I could get help with that too, much appreciated.

If you use stretchy fabric, like spandex, you don't need a fastener. You can cut a piece of upholstery foam into the bracelet shape and slide it inside your stretchy cuff before sewing it to the glove. as long as the foam inside has a gap to expand when you slide your hand through, no closure is needed. The cuff itself is just a tube.

Fortunately I was going to use a stretchy knit already (using as much of the same material I can for each colour to make it look more matched), so phew. So for sewing the cuff together and to the glove, should I incorporate it into the glove proper (so like folding the fabric around the padding and stitching it shut into a tube), or make the cuff separately and then sew it on? I'll mostly be hand sewing the gloves if it makes any difference, but of I can machine sew where possible due to the time sink these take that'd be GREAT.

Machine sew the tube, fit the tube over the foam, hand sew it to the glove (which you'd probably have to do by hand anyway even if it wasn't a fat cuff)

Alright, that makes sense. Thanks.
