You might try getting goggles from an Army/Navy store - they sell ones that are about the same shape, and they'd just need to be painted. It's been years since I bought the pair I have, so I'm not sure if they have ones with red lenses, but it's entirely possible and probably worth a shot!

i'm also cosplaying as Lal Mirch for akon lol. You might want to try just regular swimming goggles, like the big bulky ones that include the nose piece?
I've found some that look relatively close, but none that were perfect yet. I only really looked at target one time though. I was just planning on taking off the rubber plastic that goes around the face mask, painting the mask white, and then getting some sort of paint to paint the clear plastic. I'm not sure what kind of paint for either though. I remember this stuff from a while back that would paint on opaque for these fake stained glass things we did for some craft. Maybe check that out?
This is my first time cosplaying so I'm just trying to do my best. I'm still stuck on the gorilla pauldrons, shooter, and the earpiece. I was thinking about using pink foam insulation for everything, but I'm not really entirely sure. I just finished my boxes yesterday, they look fabulous :D

My friend is also going La Mirch's cosplay. I think she's using those Lab experiment googles. It's around the same shape...
