How to construct Gauntlets...?

I'm planning on cosplaying as Vi, the Piltover Enforcer from League of Legends, she is a fairly new character so I've been having trouble looking for tutorials and tips on exactly how to go about constructing her weapons. Here are some reference pics:

Given the sheer size of those gauntlets, I'd look into insulation foamboard. Home Depot or Lowe's sells it in gigantic sheets with varying thicknesses.

Foam is light, which will help reduce the strain on your arms. I would get a foam cutter, though, since you do have a handful of pieces that are curved. (Carving this stuff can be a little time consuming, especially if it's thick, and requires smoothing at the edges if you use a standard knife.)
