Hey everyone! I am wondering if anyone has any good advice on keeping Rey's arm wraps in place? They seem to start unraveling and slide off pretty quickly. Thank you!

You can add a little hidden velcro at the top to keep it from unraveling. Maybe a few tiny pieces along the way to hold it in several places?

Or some double-sided tape (bra tape) to hold it in place.

You can also use boxing wraps. If you get the Mexican style, as they are slightly elastic.

I used white sports compression sleeves under the arm wrap (I bought medical gauze "BOOTS", it's a UK brand) and tucked the top of wrap under the elastic of the sleeves. Then I used the metallic strap (sold with BOOTS wrap), to fix it on the bottom of the arm. It don't move a lot, I've just redone my wrap 1 or 2 times in convention. That's a tip that might work if you did bought medical gauze Smile

get a long lycra glove and cut fingers off and cut for length. put on your arm, do the wrap over it and then pin on the underside of your arm. carefully remove whole thing and then tack down at the pins only. this allows you to slide the wrap on and off, adjust the top as needed, and no wear and tear on the ends, and it does not slide off.

Seconding the sports compression sleeve recommendation, and I'm about 90% sure it's actually what they used on Daisy. I spotted what appeared to be a bit of tan knit at a slight gap in her wraps at one point.

I bought a pair of white ones and tea-dyed them. The big advantage I've found is that they have a silicon strip around the inside top and bottom edge to keep them in place. Tucking the ends of the gauze into the edge only takes up an inch or so of that.

On a related note -- I've gone through three sets of wraps (using basic 100% cotton medical gauze) because the stuff snags so easily, but I haven't found anything I like the look of as well. After going to the Power of Costume exhibit and confirming that they are a tighter weave than medical gauze, but not as lightweight as, say, the standard crinkle gauze from Joann (which is also very difficult to iron flat), I'm on the lookout for a flat gauze (preferably with undyed-cotton flecks) to switch to.

I use these. Dyed they look perfect and are sturdier than gauze and not uber expensive.

SkyHawk: Your link isn't working, and I'm curious!

In the meantime, I decided to see how flat I could iron some crinkle gauze from my stash, and it's working out pretty well. They don't have as much give as the medical gauze, so getting them to wrap without gapping is a little tricky, but they stay put well once I get them wrapped and look great.

Ok, I went back and found the working link! These were the closest to Boots bandages as far as I can tell. I believe another member here found them.

I use compression sleeves under mine as well. I found a pair for about $9 on Amazon (brand name "The Elixir") that come in a light skin tone color (they have other colors too). They've held up well for me after about a year of use, and are stretchy enough that they should fit most sizes. I tuck my Boots brand gauze wraps into the top, wrap down to my wrist, and then tuck into the bottom of the compression sleeve, and everything pretty much stays in place all day.
