I’ve seen a lot of people kinda confused about where the claws would sit while wearing the clawpaws, so I made an informative photo set!

The first picture is just how the glove looks (obviously) without a hand in it.

In the second, fourth, and fifth pictures you can see how the bits with the claws sit on top of the fingers. This means the claws are pretty out of the way and you retain full use of your hands.

The third picture shows how the glove fits and how it should sit on your palm. All the finger strips should sit at the base of your fingers like rings, and the wrist strap should cover just a little of your palm. You should make sure the wrist strap isn’t fastened too tightly or you lose some mobility in your wrist.

Plain black clawpaws available here

Okay so it’s not really gladiator style but that’s what we all dubbed it so

Anonymous asked: I saw your work this past weekend at the Renaissance Festival, I really enjoyed it as a budding leather worker myself. I have a small Etsy shop that has some of my work, well a very small subsection of it at least. The shop name is ChainsAndLeather, most of the work is collars right now however I need to craft a set of bracers for a friends Halloween costume. Your work was really inspirational, the armor was top notch and the clawed gloves are just amazing! I'm definitely a new fan! -Paul

Aww thanks! It’s great to hear that we inspire people. I’ll be sure to pass along the compliment!

Also, you should submit a photo when the bracers are done! We love seeing what budding leatherworkers come up with :)

Boss man and his lady, both sporting some of the Dark Cloud pieces we have available in our booth this season!
The blue lady armor sold right away, but we still have two sets left!
Booth shenanigans
Someone killed Eric again (and no one ever walks over his chalk outline)


i’m also working on getting photos from fest edited and then you can see all our wacky hijinks in action

Also people in pretty armor

Clawed gloves in mustang brown leather. Unfortunately we’ve sold out of these, and are unable to get more of this particular leather since it’s been discontinued.

We have other similar gloves for sale here

So I’m sure many of you remember these and are very sad that we can’t make any more of them (like, ever).

BUT GUESS WHAT WE FOUND

one

last

pair

We’re not 100% sure what we’re going to do with them quite yet, but I think we might end up auctioning them off, so stay tuned~!
