How To Make Steampunk Goggles

Steampunk is a style of Victorian-era costuming that’s been around for a while. If you’ve never heard of it, here’s the basic idea of what steampunk is: It’s about dressing up in clothing from the 19th century and adding a bit of modern technology to make it more exciting. But why would you want to wear goggles instead of eyeglasses? Are they even worth making? Well, if you want to be a real steampunk, yes, they are worth making! These homemade steampunk goggles come complete with lenses, an elastic strap and metal details like rivets. They might seem complicated at first but the final result is quite stunning and elegant. You can find detailed instructions on how to make these goggles below.

How Do You Make Steampunk Goggles?

The first step to making these goggles is to take a paper towel and cut out two ovals. Next, use a pencil to create the goggles’ frame. Make sure that the inside of the frames are lined with felt. Once you have completed the frame, secure it into place by sliding in a piece of elastic string underneath the frame and tie it into an upright bow knot. Lastly, add details like rivets and lens inserts before securing them on with an elastic band.

Why Do Steampunks Wear Goggles?

Steampunk goggles are a popular way to dress up in the steampunk style. There are a few reasons why steampunk goggles should be made, like they can make a costume more realistic or you can use them for safety purposes. If you want to make your own steampunk goggles, you will need some basic supplies like wire cutters and glue that you probably already have around the house. You could also find cheap goggles from various stores and crafts stores if you don’t want to go through the hassle of making your own.

How Do I Get Steampunk Goggles?

It’s easy to get steampunk goggles. You can buy a pair or make them yourself.

But if you want to go the DIY route, it can be done. All that’s needed are three things: lenses, an elastic strap and metal rivets.

What Are Those Steampunk Goggles Called?

The goggles in this article are called steampunk goggles. They’re a cool take on the classic style of goggles. To make them, you need to cut 2 pieces of felt that are about 12 inches square. Cut out a lens shape from one of the pieces and glue it onto the front piece of felt, then put another piece of felt over top for extra strength. Leave both pieces to dry for about 30 minutes or until they’ve taken all the glue. Next, use a needle and thread to create a long enough strap and sew it onto the back piece of felt. Glue it in place and trim any excess so that it’s flush with the surface. Then paint your lenses with some black acrylic paint and let them dry before adding rivets, which is super easy because they’re just attached with a needle and thread! Make sure you have an eye screw on hand before starting because you’ll need it to attach these straps to the goggles!

How Do You Make Steampunk Goggles Out Of Swimming Goggles?

Start by disassembling a pair of swimming goggles. You can remove the lenses and replace them with lenses that you find at an eyeglass store or online. The next step is to use a fabric marker to draw on the frame where your new lenses will go. Next, trace around the frame with a permanent marker and cut out the shape you just made. Next, put glue inside the hole you created and put your fabric in it before pressing down firmly to make sure it’s glued tightly.

How Do You Make Steampunk Goggles For Dolls?

The first thing you need is a pair of goggles. This can be purchased at a local shop or online. If you are purchasing them online, look for a pair that has a smaller lens opening and also has some metal detailing to give the goggles more authenticity. You’ll also need a pair of safety goggles (or an old set), scissors, a marker pen and clear fishing line. To create your own steampunk goggles, start by drawing around the lenses of your safety goggles onto the inside of your homemade goggles using the marker pen. Make sure that you leave enough space for the elastic strap to fit in between the two pieces of plastic. Once this is done, cut out and remove the black plastic from both pieces of plastic with scissors so that it’s removed all around. Next, tightly tie one end of the elastic strap on each side of the front piece and cut open one inch up from both sides so that it creates two vertical holes at each side of your goggles where they meet in the middle. Next, take your fishing line and thread it through those two holes so that it’s going up towards one edge, making sure to keep your knots tight so they don’t fall off or come undone when wearing these things! Next, attach one piece to each side of the other piece with your knots intact, putting them together securely in order to create your first layer! Repeat this process until you have created as many layers as needed for your desired thickness!

Where Can I Buy Steampunk Goggles?

Steampunk goggles are some of the easiest things to make, but they can be pricey. However, there are plenty of places where you can buy them online. You should check out Etsy or Ebay for these types of goggles. If you want to make your own steampunk goggles, you will need a few basic supplies that can be found at any store: -Goggles with lenses -A piece of 1″ wide elastic strap -Metal rivets -Hot glue gun and glue sticks
