Steampunk Goggles by Crimson-Fatalis Steampunk Goggles by Crimson-Fatalis
My first attempt at any sort of steampunk work. they're still not 100%, although I'm not sure what else I can do with them...Well, I'm sure there's something. They're still a bit rough and..well, dirty looking. If you look close enough, you can see glue coming from a couple of the seams, but it's nothing I can't clean up. ;D

Anyway, the whole process must've taken around 9-10 hours, excluding the large margins of time I spent NOT working on them and or course, the painful glue-drying times. The metal sections are made mostly of old clock/watch parts with a few nuts and rivets here and there for design. The strap and..uh..eye-cuffs deals are made of leather taken from a couple of belts, and the lenses themselves were taken from some sunglasses I had laying around. Real inexpensive to make. I'd say around $10, at the most. :]

Full-view please.

The surrounding metal fitting are caps I found on some old glass oil jars; the lenses are just taken from sunglasses. Hope that helps, sorry it's kinda vague. :)

Oil glass jars? Thats plenty of info, i've been looking around town for things i could use as eye pieces, but nothing seems to be quite what i'm looking for.

The jars looked similar to this - [link]

I used a router to hollow out the center, but I'm sure there are several ways to go about doing that.
