Imagine if Tony Stark was creating his Iron Man armor in the 1800s. He would come up with something like these steampunk gauntlets for sure.
Etsy shop owner SkinzNhydez made each custom piece by hand using 8oz. veggie tanned leather, and brass sheets with rivets and studs, and then aged it with dyes and finishers and loaded them with LED illumination. The impressive level of detail is what makes these so awesome. It also makes them take about a month to complete, and they will set you back about $2000 – for a single arm.
If you want something like this, you can give them custom design ideas and they will work with you. These gauntlets rock!
