    I may not be the best representative to start this thread, but I'm sure others will chime in. As far as I know, every Power Rangers series (and Japanese Sentai from Zyuranger on, since that's the earliest I've seen) has used the same base pair of gloves, only sometimes varying in color. They are leather, with 5 ribs along the knuckles and a zipper a few inches up the arm. They are usually covered with gaunlets that are different depending on the series (and some series don't use gauntlets)

    Is there anyone here that can make affordable base leather gloves for the many Ranger costumers out there? I'd be in for 5+ pairs, and I know there are countless others who have used thin spandex gloves or painted black motorcycle gloves who would be in, pending price.

    Someone help an entire genre's prop community out.

    These are made of soft goatskin. I can provide big scans of my pair of sentai gloves for anyone with the skills to make these.

    When available throug auction, these can ranger from $70.00 to $100.00 a pair. Depends of the color. White ones are the hardest to find and the most on demand.

    I don't think these are comercially available at all. I've seen some knock-off, but only in black.

    Another option for you is to buy the black ones and use leather paint to color them. Here's the co that I use. Go to products/leather paint.
    They sell a big variety of colors that can be intermixed, and a few different whites.

    We may be able to replicate these. They don't seem too difficult.
