over 24 hours because i'm insane and i've lost control of my life.
Everything you see here I found around my room;
the main base of the arm is EVA foam, 3mm foam and 1mm foam,
the studs are split pins,
the finger armour is pieces of scrap worbla I had lying around.
All the “wires” on the forearm piece are actually just pieces of string that glued on because I hate myself, and the bicep wires are all string, and a cut up broken iphone charger cable.
The red part of the gauntlet is the plastic form a yoghurt pot, painted with red nail varnish with a layer of tissue paper to make it opaque.
And the lights are battery powered fairy lights that I had in my room, took apart an glued in place.
Originally, the arm was skinny enough that I could slide it under my gauntlets, so i was just going to make a robotic arm that the gauntlets would fit over, but as I started making it I decided to make the arm a weapon in itself.
I incorporated lots of features from Yang’s gauntlets, made the shotgun shells into “dust lights”, and weathered it to look like silver metal that had been painted over in gold, because I like the idea of the rest of Team RWBY sitting and painting Yang’s arm to make it part of her, and not just a replacement for something she lost. I wanted it to be personal.
Also it fucking lights up so come at me bros
