This is the one part of the costume I can't figure out/find ANYWHERE. Maybe I don't know where to look.


I did find these (http://cgi.ebay.com/Gothwerks-Adult-Goggles_W0QQitemZ190464351252QQcategoryZ19255QQcmd ZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286.m7QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DLVI% 26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid %3D6184347528045388005), the only problem is the lenses are black. Here's (http://cgi.ebay.com/Steampunk-Costume-Accessory-Cyber-Red-Frame-Goggles-/380300862886?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item588bb2a5a6) another picture, of their other color.

Other than that, I can't really find anything with red lenses, besides these (http://cgi.ebay.com/WHITE-GOGGLES-RED-RAVE-CYBER-PUNK-GOTHIC-SUNGLASSES-/310285679175?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item483e77ba47).

I've thought about making them. I found a tutorial (http://rexluna108.deviantart.com/favourites/#/d1ibb0r) for steampunk goggles.

Any help would be supremely awesome.

I think that a lot of people use sunglasses instead of googles because it's easier to find red lenses. You could also probably buy some cheap googles with clear lenses and paint them red (or put something behind the lenses to make them look red, like paper)

Why don't you paint the ones with red lens? O.o

I agree with this. Paint the ones with red lens is probably the best way to go.

That's what I thought but...I really like those goggles xD

Mmm.. if the lens size is the same you could probably pop it out and switch it? Not sure if this is the best way to go as it might not work and you need the 2 goggles ><

I actually found these (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140497412159), as well as separate (http://cgi.ebay.com/Extra-LENS-Steampunk-Goggles-Cyber-Rave-Industrial-Goth-/250528096482?pt=US_Sunglasses&var=&hash=item800e9c127a) lenses I can purchase in red. I might do that...

I got these pilot goggles, then I used red stained glass paint to colour the lenses red.
Hope this helps! :3
