Awesome gauntlet thingies made from an old pair of shoes :3
I just found a really old pair of shoes in my closet. With a bit of thinking, I thought to turn them into some nifty looking gauntlet looking things. :3 They remind me of waste lander attire in Fallout.

I've pinched my other half's old leather boots to do this. I'm gonna sew the tongue to it and use the laces to tie it. I just hope I can go through the leather with my needle and finger strength. I sense a thimble being of use!
