In this question, Comments suggested that a creature with feat Improved Unarmed Strike that wanted magic weapon special abilities for his unarmed strike get a pair of masterwork gloves, have them given a magical enhancement bonus (presumably by the spell greater magic weapon which may be able to target the gloves as improvised weapons?), then get the now +1 gloves imbued with magic weapon special abilities.
- Is it legit to imbue masterwork nonweapons with magic weapon special abilities in this fashion?
- If so and assuming that a creature makes unarmed strikes exclusively with its fists (although any creature can make an unarmed strike with different body parts), will a creature wearing, for example, +1 flaming gloves gain the gloves' enhancement bonus and the weapon special ability flaming when the creature makes attacks with his unarmed strike?
(Whether mastertwork clothing can have magic armor special abilities is addressed by this question.)
