Excelsior Goggles With New Lens by janus002 Excelsior Goggles With New Lens by janus002
Another new photo of my own personal steampunk goggles, the Excelsior Aviator Ocular Shields. This time I have upgraded the lens on the right side with a special, laser etched ruby red lens for a bit more added detail. Perhaps if the hat was a lighter color you would be able to see the red color a little better but I really love how the etching looks in this view.

The goggles were steampunked by myself using a lot of different various methods and you can look at earlier posts here [link] and here [link].

The new lens was not made by me but instead by a very nice lady who runs a store on etsy called The Golden Gear. Ilana Murray is based out of Santa Clara, CA in these United States and I would highly recommend you check out her items as she is reasonable on prices and communicates well with her customers. Her store link: [link]

Plus, as long as you are on etsy check my store out as well for more steampunk goodies and supplies: [link]

Thanks!  I used a type of paint called "Rub N Buff" which I picked up at a craft store.  If you paint the plastic black then apply the rub n buff with an old brush or cloth you can get this nice weathered look.  Plus it is fun to do anyway.
