Gillian Conahan ––

Your go-to handbook for costume handwear

Making gloves is a notorious test of cosplay craft. Novices and experienced costume makers alike find them fiddly, time-consuming, and tricky to fit, but too often essential to complete a look. Handwear Handbook guides readers through all the techniques and tips to create all forms of hand and arm-wear, building up from basic cuffs and bracers to fully gusseted gloves, armor, and more! Covering every step of the process — from material selection to final embellishments — professional stage costumer Gillian Conahan demystifies glove making and offers crafters of all levels a repertoire of basic pieces that can adapt to any style.
