A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise – Freddy Krueger Gloves

A run of Freddy Krueger Gloves made for Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights.  We were tasked with producing a glove that would reduce performer fatigue and injuries from past iterations, stand up to hundreds of performances, and be easy to repair if necessary. We combined different elements found on the various versions of the gloves from the films to come up with a version that suited the client’s needs. The blades and other steel components are waterjet-cut 11 and 16 gauge cold rolled steel, welded stainless steel rivets, with a painted leather wrist strap. The gloves were designed to fit securely over an appropriately aged leather glove that could be replaced independently as it wears out.
