Steampunk Goggles by Challenger70TA Steampunk Goggles by Challenger70TA
This was my first attempt at making a Steampunk accessory. I looked at several online and sorta did my own variation. I did not have actually brass fittings for the body at that time, so PVC ones were used. The rest is hand cut and sewn leather, brass screws, washers, D-rings and buckles. Everything was hand made on these and took some serious time, especially sewing the leather and cutting the brass. The green target scope lights up thanks to a mini LED and each eye also is installed with their own red LEDs to light the lenses up.

I wear these on top of my kepi hat with my Steampunk Confederate officer uniform.

I actually substitute Brass rivets for Brass tacks and glue. Much cheaper and easier to get hold of.

Splendid job! I have a pair that I am working on that have been on my to do list, (make that my 'to finish' list) for the past few months. I disemboweled a pair of cheapo sunglasses and now they have arms instead of the usual strap thing going. I love how you did the crosshatch sight. does it swing out of view or is it stationary?
You have given me some interesting things to ponder pertaining to my own pair. Cheers and good luck in all endeavors taken.

Thank you! Actually all these accessories and weapons I've posted go along with my Steampunk Confederate uniform. My next project is Steampunking a 3'x 5' Confederate battle flag to carry at cons that represents the colors for the "Air Corp" unit my character is in.


I've posted the full uniform on here and is a few pictures back if you haven't seen it.
