I haven't seen any threads dedicated to Cara Dune or else I would have posted in there. My wife has decided she wants to do a Cara Dune cosplay for Star Wars Celebration later this year (fingers crossed)

I started to research the parts, and saw everyone was 3D printing (or buying crappy 3D prints of) the knuckle protectors and vents for Cara Dune's gloves. I figured (based on a number of factors) that they were likely found parts.

This is a photo of the real gloves. Photo found on Google Images- I believe it was from when the costume was on display at the D23 expo last summer.

So I googled "knuckle protector gloves" and after about 10 minutes of scrolling image search- I landed on these:

These are the cheapest of cheap gloves, :D I found them on eBay for about 6$ US a pair. I ordered, and received them last week- it took about a month. Frankly, I'm not surprised with everything going on.

I ordered gray- they come in a range of colors. Now I just have to find the base gloves, or something close. Anyway, that's what I got. Good luck!

The base gloves are a basic pair of black leather gloves with three stitched lines going down the back of the hand with a longer wrist/ forearm section.

There’s a Cara Dune costuming Facebook group that has a ton of really good reference material as well as some insights from a crew member on the show regarding hair styling, pants, colors and other things! My fiancé and I are also doing a Mando/ Cara for celebration this year and found a lot of info there!

Good luck with your build!

You might try hitting a military surplus store if you have one locally. I've seen some military tactical gloves at my local store that look very similar to those gloves (though not exactly the same).
