The best thing you can do is to go to a fabric store and mess around in the sale racks until you find something that looks like what you want. There are different types of transparent material though--cotton gauze, thin nylon, even tulle. They behave differently.

If you don't have a fabric store available, consider online shops like fabric.com and fashionfabrics.com. If even that's not an option, in a pinch you might be able to find something in the housewares department of your local big-box retailer as a curtain or shower curtain.

By material do you mean "fabric" or some kind of plastic? What are you planning to use it for? If you post a reference picture it would help.

...wow. This is why asking detailed questions is important.

For your lenses, see if you can find some children's toys at Goodwill to cannibalize, or try colored mylar sheets from an office-supply store. They're usually in the section with the binders.

Hey Mango - I just checked, and according to his profile, Mr. Giedrius resides in Lithuania. So Goodwill is out. :P

But, Mr. Giedrius, Mango is correct that it is important to ask detailed questions. And I still say that a reference picture would help so that we can see how large, how green, how they attach to the mask/headpiece, etc. Otherwise it's hard to give advice. ^_^
