Texas-based artist Chris DeSmith just might beat Freddy Krueger at his own game with these excellently creepy handmade gothic claw gloves, sold through the Etsy shop Medieval Fashion.
Where Freddy's weapon of choice was tipped with metal blades, DeSmith's leather and metal gauntlets are instead enhanced with some evil-looking dragon talons.
There's a wide selection of styles and colors available, from the basic black model to steampunk variants, and even some elegant red and white leather versions for the glamorous horror cosplayer.
The gauntlets feature fully adjustable straps and buckles to accommodate most hand sizes, and most models sell for under $60. Browse the entire collection at Medieval Fashion.
If you really want to go all the way with your Medieval-style horror cosplay, these might make suitably creepy accessories for your Plague Doctor costume...
