Make Your Own Infinity Gauntlet for Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters on Friday, April 24, and Thanos is on people’s minds. Marvel’s big purple villain is trying to gather all the Infinity Stones for his Infinity Gauntlet, the prop at the center of the above how-to video. YouTuber Odin Abbott of Odin Makes received requests for an Infinity Gauntlet tutorial, so he scaled the gauntlet down to human size (a Thanos-size prop would be impossible to wear) and documented each step of the build. Odin started with a base of a welding glove, took some measurements, and made a paper pattern. He then used EVA foam floor mats to create the powerful gauntlet around and over the welding glove.
