Steampunk Goggles and Interchangable Lenses by Nashoba-Hostina Steampunk Goggles and Interchangable Lenses by Nashoba-Hostina
I guess since I posted something steampunk last night, I'd follow it up with something I should have photographed a long time ago.

So, yeah. These are my silly little steampunk goggles for my cryptozoologist werewolf character. They’re designed to protect my characters eyes and glasses… and yeah, they are designed to fit over my glasses comfortably. However, most of the time, they sit on my hat. No, I don’t use a top hat, or even a bowler hat; my character wears an Australian barmah hat, which she acquired in New Holland (she was there studying Tasmanian wolves, as well as little things like the Irrinja and Bunyips).

However, I digress. My goggles also have several interchangeable lenses. For instance I have green ones to act as sunglasses, a blood-splattered one for a little extra grime, one to help my character easily deduce angles while observing (while being a handy cross-hairs), as well as plain ones and such. But, I used my favorite ones in the photo.

Not much else to say, really… just some scrap leather, an old belt, some tiny craft canister lids, and a few pretty doodads.

If you have the right kind of polarizing lenses on there, they'll also defend against gaze-based attacks.

Yeah, it's one of those funky tricks of quantum optics. It's why a reflected gaze attack has reduced or even zero potency. It's called the Perseus Effect.

I was wondering, what did you use for the rims on the lenses?

Oh, they're just the lids to craft canisters. :3 You can get them for a buck or two a piece.

How did you make this one?

I bought a couple of 1$ craft canisters, used the lids for lenses, cut a hill-shape out of scrap leather for the leather side pieces, bought a 1$ slim belt from a thrift store, punched some holes in them and assembled them with a few studs like you see here. (The metal decorative bits were from the jewelry section of the craft store; I just modified them slightly.)

A steampunk werewolf? That's a fabolous idea in my opinion. An australian werewolf who studies tasmanian wolves also sound quite interesting.
The googles look really stylish and I guess it's also quite useful for different situations. But there is something, which comes into my mind. Wolves aren't able to see red, so is this a reason why the green glasses are for sun protection?

Would make sense to me. The brain would have problems with switching between not red-blind and red-blind.XD
