Steampunk Goggles by SpookyLoop Steampunk Goggles by SpookyLoop
Steampunk goggles I made for my boyfriend.

Took about 7 hours to complete, but still needs some finishing touches. I don't have the money or the skill for using any proper equipment so super glue to the rescue!

Used two lids of candles you put on graves, some leather I found lying around, thicker leather for the straps, hinges, a buckle, some gears, clock hands, screws, a needle, thread, paint and loads of glue.

I don't want to sound mean but I get this so much I have to say it: these are just accessories, made with random stuff anyone can find from their house or local shops without visiting any special shops. The "lenses" are - like I mentioned earlier in the description - lids of sanctuary candles, one obviously can't see through them. Please, stop pointing out the "flaw" in these goggles or asking me how someone is supposed to see through them. Thank you.

If you can't see out of them, how are they "Goggles" ?
a cool wrist watch / time traveling device I would more readily have believed.

Because they are shaped like goggles and made like goggles. They are a decoration, but that doesn't make them any less of goggles. And because of the size they could definitely not be called a wrist watch.
Many accessories in subcultures are there just for the look, not for any real use. These could be worn around the neck, or around a hat for example. One can't see through these [link] , for example, yet they are very much goggles.

I love it, they're just beautiful!!! And the best part is that you made them by yourself, that's what I like, that's what I NEED (I'm looking for a good tutorial to make my own cyber goggles) :)
Good job ;)

I could get these here in Finland, but they'd be just normal goggles but bronze-coloured and the pics on them are just paper plus they're ridiculously expensive so I'd rather make these myself.
I'll take a look :aww:

A lot of people ask me that and I have thought of it, but I simply don't think I'm good enough to sell stuff... Especially since these would end up costing quite a bit - or at least as much as some nicer goggles you can find at online stores. I'm a bit scared of people being angry at me for selling something that doesn't live up to their expectations :blush:

You're welcome!
I haven't found any goggles on the internet that I like better than these so far,the people on the internet stores have expensive goggles that people (with no DIY skills like me) pay for because we can't make our own...

In simple terms; they're better than some on the internet :)

Aww that's so sweet! I'm afraid on behalf of the quality of these though, since I don't know how well the stitching etc will last :/
But I've thought of selling self-made/self-decorated goggles and cyberlox falls on Etsy, so I'll definitely let you know if I start doing it and you're still interested! :aww:
