Steampunk Gauntlet - Here comes the BOOM! by deadlanceSteamworks Steampunk Gauntlet - Here comes the BOOM! by deadlanceSteamworks
My latest Steampunk Gauntlet is entitled Here comes the BOOM! because of the 2 integrated speakers mounted on top of the forearm. The cable comes out from the inside of the gauntlet and is long enough to travel inside my sleeve, down my shirt, and into my pocket for use in playing music from my mp3 player. This is personal theme music in style! Ok, on the bad side, the speakers kind of suck. They are not powered and so way too quite to be seriously useful for listening... but serve as a decent background music playing platform.

The gauntlet is super comfortable and designed to fit a medium / large hand. It's made of 8oz high quality leather, fitted with an antique pressure gauge, lots of aluminium, and a small sculpture on the back of the hand. It's secured to the forearm with 6 buckles for super adjustability.

It's going to be posted for sale sometime soon in my etsy shop!

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-03
Steampunk Gauntlet - Here comes the BOOM! by =futuremod an impressive gauntlet. ( Suggested by DragonflyAndromeda and Featured by UnicornReality )
Well done, attention to detail is excellent. Scratches, rust and other imperfections add to the overall design aesthetic. Overall, functionality is key to making great Steampunk. The Pressure Gauge is a nice touch, adds to the realism and functionality. I also like the fingers as they are critical to making a good Gauntlet. I built one as well but cheated a little by using some PVC parts instead of the real thing. However, I wore it for ComicCon 2012 so it had to be made lightweight as I wore all day and then to a Steampunk Expo that evening. Has a great impact, visually stunning as well.

Keep up the great work!

The detail in this work honestly astounds me. I can understand as to why it would be featured as the daily deviation. The speakers are a brilliant idea. They may be quiet, but you're so smart in making all of this work.
Each intricate detail is absolutely astounding and I can really tell that you have put a lot of work into this piece. I wish I had the money to be able to buy something like this, and I wish I had the skill to create something like this. So, overall you've done brilliantly and I absolutely love what you've done. :3

Absolutely LOVE how this turned out. Kind of reminds me of Hellboy's hand but made steampunk.
Anyway, well done!

Thank you =)
im seeing this right now for the second time on DA as you just popped up in my news feed. i really like this piece. it is bold beautiful and over the top (which is exactly what steam punk is supposed to be). the only thing i would add is maybe a battery pack of some sort, like your aether injector has, but i dont know too much about speakers to know if a battery pack is enough power for them. the only other critique i have is that i wish it wasnt 800 bucks for it, which i understand completely its worth it. i just want the piece and dont have 800 hundred dollars, so thats just me. other than those ideas i CANNOT speak badly about the piece, the only thing i wonder is if its adjustable or not for larger people such as myself, if i did ever get it (or is it one size fits all?)
