Steampunk goggles

Posted on in creations with tags metalwork, leatherwork.

These broadly follow Thomas Willeford’s pattern, found in his Steampunk Gear, Gadgets and Gizmos book.

The eyepieces are made from a US-style plumbing fixture, which was tricky to get hold of in New Zealand. The leather strap, nose piece and padding is riveted on. The lenses are red perspex.
