Constructed from 100% household junk! I got the basic design from this lovely tutorial [link]
but took my own path for most of it.
I used vitamin bottle caps instead of mason jar lids for the rims, the lenses are made out of some thin green plastic sheeting my Dad gave me years ago, the strap and side guards are made of faux leather (the side guards are reinforced with cardboard), the "sheepskin" is minky (it makes them really comfy), the rings on the side were stolen from an old purse, the buckle in the back is two links from an old chandelier chain, the "rivets" are Bedazzler studs with the prongs folded under, and the nosepiece/decorative-thing-around-the-lenses is copper wire.
I love these things so much I refuse to take them off! I even wore them to school!Used as part of my aviator costume here: [link]My steampunk rings: [link]My steampunk flash drive: [link]
