Introduction: Last Exile Goggles

"ANIMOWEAR" series stuff (anime-movie- wear).
Simple but very nice goggles, inspired by the recently released second season of the anime "Last Exile". Absolute copy did not seek, but the basic elements of similarity can be seen clearly.
Fans of cosplay can be fun.

Once again... I tip my hat to you. Great work! Great use of the ruler, and well lit pics. What do you weld and braze on? I have a work bench set up, and will be doing something artistic with brass and copper, but need to get an idea of the base area for work. Thanks for keeping up such great work!

Thank you. For soldering, I use silver solder, flux and active propane burner. Good luck to you in all your endeavor

im surprised you can do peices that size on a propane burner. i made a large handcrafted copper rose and my propane torch couldnt get hot enough i had to use an oxy acceerterline (terrible spelling sorry) one

Perhaps you are using a high-melting solders. My solder melts at a temperature of 750 С, and propane burner allows me to work with him.

it's not the solder dude, you can easily melt silver O% copper stick with propane, it's one of those things "mapp gas" tycoons don't wan't you to know... the trick is simple the torch, i make my own torches, bronze nozzle, low presurre regulator (like the one used for oxygen) and the last but not least important combustion chamber, stainless steel pipe 3/8" diameter flared to the inside on the tip and huge air intakes on the joint nozzle-pipe... trust my you can melt most stuff with this setup. (pm'me if you like pics.)

I have no problem with soldering.  I just assumed the reasons for failure dudes. However, your advice will be useful to those who started working with these materials for the first time.

Oh my dog. How talented are you to make an amazing pair of goggles from a cartoon. Just. Wow.

As always, your work is exquisite. I particularly like your Instructables, firstly because they always teach me something new and secondly because you so clearly show the details of 'how-I-did-this". Can you tell me what mini cutting discs you use? I get mine from a jewellers' supply shop and as they are extremely delicate, they always break before I achieve anything worthwhile.

Thank you) I like Fiberglass Reinforced Cut-off Wheels
They are thicker than the usual cut-off wheels, but is stronger and more reliable.

*see use of standard drill to turn brass instead of a lathe*
Someone needs to get this man a metal lathe and associated tools pronto!
Sir gogglerman, every piece I have seen you post is top notch work worthy of great recognition and a sizeable artist paycheck, every steam-head needs to see your mastery.

Me alegra mucho que te gusta.

I think that, maybe, using a incandescent copper wire you could cut bulbs, flattening the cut with a torch, and get concave glasses that they can be used in same design.... it's only an idea :)

Exquisitamente detallista, extremadamente imaginativo en los procesos... sanamente envidiable!
Aspiro a poder llegar a trabajar de la misma manera aunque me cueste la vida.
Felicitaciones!!
