That's an interesting method. I can honestly say I hadn't thought of that.

I used a different method for my Kaiba gauntlets. I made my guantlets out of craft foam covered with styrene. The foam is nice because it's easy to shape and the plastic gives it a nice metalic look.

They came out looking like this: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=436425

I think it gives it a smoother finish.

your welcome I got my slap bracelets off ebay, but some specialty shops may have them. my husband is also looking into making them himself, because some of the ones I bought, when I removed the original rapping out of them they ware parts of a tape measure. He already tried an old one and couldn't get make it coil. So we are going to buy a cheap one and try on a new one. If that works I'll let every one know.

also the ribbon I used is called Santa's best and I got it at my local Dollar Tree.

for Seto's and Isis's I just used gold fabric and put in hidden snaps in the back. maybe to give a stiffer look add interfacing behind the gold or in the gold fabric to help. and thanks for your wounderful comments. believe it or not Priest Seto, Isis, and the Dark Magician are my first solo costumes I norbly have my mom make them or help me make them. but she has been so busy I figured that since I have been merried also 8 years now I need to learn some time. LOL
