    A friend of mine wanted me to make him some custom steampunk goggles for his halloween costume. He gave me free reign over the color and design. This is the result...

    After sanding them down and then spray painting them with Metallic Antique Brass spray paint.

    Final result after installing some plastic for lenses and decorative bolts. Everything is held together with clear silicone.

    Finished product. He is wearing them with his halloween steampunk costume. Pretty good end result as opposed to buying generic or most commonly bought ones, one can make their own with their own two hands.

    Very cool. I like the asymmetry.
    This is my version of some steam punk goggles. They were downloaded from thingiverse. Just cleaned them up and used some brass rub-n-buff. Used some leather I had to do the straps

    Should have printed it out of bronzefill.
    Downsides:

    1) expensive as #$%^
    2) heavy as ^%$#

    :)

    Excellent job.

    Awesome! Love it. My next project is coming pretty well. I am designing some molds and making them as hollow as possible to decrease print time while retaining quality. So far I dropped it from 14 hours to 9 hours. Now I just need a day where I can set it and let it print.
