Until you wear gloves for a cosplay you might not notice how annoying they are! You want your phone out for pictures and connecting with your fellow nerds online, but it sucks having to pull your glove off for every photo op- sometime the crowd on the floor moves to quickly.
I discovered conductive thread about a week before WonderCon 2015 so I whipped up these gloves for the phone-addicted Riddler in our Arkham Starfleet group cosplay. SInce it was in a rush, the stitches are pretty sloppy, but I’m happy to report they worked great!
I found my thread on Amazon.com since I was in a super hurry and needed speedy delivery.
How to Make Touch Screen Cosplay Gloves
All you really need are gloves, conductive thread, and a needle, but you might find a hair curler useful if you have one on hand.
You need something to put in the finger of the glove while you stitch. This is where the curler will come in handy. First, take the foam off the roller.
Insert the frame of the roller into the finger you want to make touch screen friendly.
Whip stitch rows along the pad of the finger you’re working on. You need at least enough rows to cover the pad of the finger.
Once you’re done, you’ll be able to text and take pics to your hearts content ❤
