Vriska robot arm TUTORIAL 1of2 by Anniina85 Vriska robot arm TUTORIAL 1of2 by Anniina85
A bit different Vriska Serket robot arm tutorial
~ NO COMMISSIONS ~

Part 1 - The Glove.
Part 2 - The Colors
[link]



At this half I explain how to sow a glove out of 60 den grey tights. -Again, this is just a messy walkthrough with all the mistakes and everything of how I rolled with this, there's better ways, I bet. Learn from my mistakes, bro! :'D

So, my robot arm ended up a bit more complicated than the original design. I didn't want to just color my arm with few stripes for the cosplay and be done with it. I wanted it to look AWESOME. I took influence from GUNNM and FMA etc. and the fab result surprised even me. : D Since people have been so sweet and curious about this, here's a 2-part tutorial just for you. <3

This method can be used for just any robot arm, not just Vriskas. Or simply just how to make a grey glove for troll cosplay etc, if you don't want to paint your skin.

:heart: PS: I'd LOVE to see your results! <3

character Vriska Serket from Homestuck Andrew Hussie
all else me

Can you sew this using a sewing machine, or would it work better hand-sewing it?

verrrry cool, actually. I've got loads of old tights I'll probably never wear again, but in decent condition! Gonna make myself a pair of everyday cat's paws with this as a base. Gonna be cool as.

This is super awesome --I'm hoping to cobble together a Cinder (Lunar Chronicles) cosplay using this technique --and as a bonus, I think I can make a leg with the same technique and then I'm not wasting half of a pair of tights! Woo! I'll def. let you know how it turns out :)

Is there anywhere that I can buy something like this, that covers the arm and hand? I know you don't do commissions for it, but...

This is a great tutorial not just for robot arms but for skin tight gloves in general. I am using this tutorial to make a beast arm and using the same method to making the legs. Thank you so much for this tutorial!

The thing i love most about this is that it can be used for other things than Vriska.
I for an example, are going to use it for a Robot!Phineas cosplay, and it've helped loads!
Not only with the arms, but how to make robo-legs as well! I can't possibly thank you enough!

Could I use a sewing machine for this? My friends are having a party this weekend and I'm really bad at sewing.

well, since there's close to none sewing allowance I don't see how that'd be even possible. the stitches are very easy to do but yeah, this glove ain't gonna be made in a day, sorry!

for the part about the arm, you said to go by the thumbline. I don't really understand what you meant by that uhh could you offer a more detailed explanation? sorry about that.

:iconanniina85:
Anniina85 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013   Traditional Artist
I meant that you should narrow off the fabric along the "life line" of the palm [link]
sorry if it's hard to understand : DD

Thanks for the tutorial! Do you think it would be to hard to hand-sew the glove since I don't own a sewing machine? (I'm not a beginner at hand-sewing and have a huge kit for it.)

:iconanniina85:
Anniina85 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013   Traditional Artist
well, considering that it IS SUPPOSED TO BE sewn by hand, I think you'll be just fine : DDDD I'm not even sure if a sewing machine could handle this task. Good luck!~

I've looked in so many stores and I just can't find any ^^;
