    Jun 25, 2009, 11:10 PM - Freddy glove templates? #1

    Hey guys, I've been kicking around the idea of making a Freddy glove for the past......I guess since I first saw the movie when I was 7 haha. Anyways, I remember in a thread around here somewhere someone posted a link to templates for the parts. I can't find the thread and can't remember who posted it. I also can't turn anything up on a google search. If anyone has or know how I can find the templates I would be EXTREMELY greatful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here's one I drew up - it's similar to the Freddy Vs Jason glove, but more by accident than design!

    Still gotta make the blades!


    Hope that helps!

    Not to far off topic, any sources for blades. I would love to replace the mystery metal blades on my glove.

    here's a site that sells blade sets.
    http://www.k4fgloves.com/
    i've never bought from them so i can't attest to quality or anything else.
    i think there was another site that sold them, i'll post a link if i find it.

    Those are nice blades! Stainless Steel no less. I may have to order a set. They don't appear to be sharpened though.

    I forgot who made my glove. I know they are now out of business as the builder went back to school. The website was taken offline the last time I checked.

    not many glove makers will pre-sharpen the blades that i know of - probably for liability. you could always sharpen them yourself if you really wanted,but the stainless might not hold an edge anyway. they're props, not weapons after all, so edge retention isn't exactly going ot be high on the list of material specs.

    it's a small market, and most are pretty shut up about their templates.

    I remember making mine out of various copper tubing many years ago. It seems them being all slick and finished wasn't in thinking of the character. The rougher the better.
    I made my blades of out metal I sharpened like real blades. If you gonna do it , why make them dull really..

    Posting to say thx to Coz!

    about a month ago I used Coz's templates, they're great for getting your head around the pieces. I can now finally say thankyou as i now have a membership


    If you're wanting to make a Nightmare 1 glove then I suggest the following tweaks to the templates above.

    1) The finger tip pieces on the left side of the sheet- Where the "V" is cut into the fingertip, take a pencil and rejoin the 'v' cut so it's a semicircle at the fingertip. This will also make the fingertip a little longer.

    2) The middle finger pieces on the right side of the page, add about 15mm of length to the 'narrow' part of the piece. If your doing a nightmare 1 these need to be much longer. The pinky may need more as it's a little short in proportion to the others.


    remember to make the piece longer then the template cause you can always trim them to size as it comes together







    hope this helps anyone tackling this project in the future

    Werstrooper - great job on that! Really like the colour on the copper!

    Glad to be of service!

    Gotta love that creaking metal noise when flexing the fingers - spine tingly!

    The following pics came from David Miller's (FX Artist) website: DAVID MILLER CREATIONS. He sells replica gloves from the Nightmare films he worked on as well as a generic felt fedora, rubber stunt mask, & sweaters. I'm also posting a pic of my Freddy statue (work in progress) & all items on statue I had purchased from David Miller. Hope the pics helps.

    nice Thread, I'm planning to build my own glove.
    Is there any more instruction? I wonder how to fix the blades to the rest of the glove?

    thanks!

    Those templates are awesome! Might I ask what thickness copper you guys used and where you purchased it? I'm new to making one of these so please forgive my ignorance. I'd love to take a crack at making one!
