Mad Scientist Goggles. Just what I needed to complete my mad scientist costume.

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Your use will vary. After all, each mad scientist does it his/her own way.
I use:
2 caps from 1 liter pop bottles
1 2 liter pop bottle, clear
leather scrap
assorted screws
super glue
copper spray paint
1 spade style drill bit
razor knife
"The Goggles, They Do nothing!"
Not even microwave protection... Four years and someone recognises the quote, awh yeah.
You prolly coulda also used some gatorade or powerade caps, but u wouldnta had the liner thing...or you could do like Redrogue said n stack em for a pretty cool look... anyways very nice instructable, i like it.
they look good, but.. arent they a little small? im seriously asking. when you put them on does the lenses area feel small to you? cuz i made a pair with much bigger eye pieces and they feel just the right size
you know, if you stack a smaller cap on a big one, it'll look like they can zoom in as well, sort of like the gnomish goggles in WoW
I like the burning crusade goggles
Does anyone know where i can get lab gloves, meaning black rubber gloves about elbow length? i ask cause theyd go well with this Project
I got some of those at a local restaurant supply store a few years back. I've also seen them at HomeDepot
yea ive since see em at a hardware store
Just picked up some cool ALL BLACK elbow length at Home depot. In the cleaner isle.
nice but if your cheap you can buy some cheap welding goggles
I made two pair as we are showing Young Frankenstein at our theatre on the 27th! Thank you for this Instructable. I am not so good at the making of things. This was tres fun.<br/><br/>Here are mine:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/kellyhogaboom/tags/7thstreettheatre/">http://www.flickr.com/photos/kellyhogaboom/tags/7thstreettheatre/</a><br/><br/>Thanks - and great job!<br/><br/>
i love it
This is cool!
Dude - too cool! I'm going to copy this but see if I can make them bigger - I am so going to have the best boarding goggles this winter!
I think I would prefer to use Big Gulp caps, for the added height and diameter. But this is such a cool idea! Thanks!
can u believe i cant find the f'ing caps seem only MD has the right sized cap wher i am at the moment
I would think the caps would be too shallow. I think i will use modified pvc pipe endcaps.
Great idea and project to do with your kids.
The goggles <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/SUC28TNF54HMFSA/">my youngest likes to wear</a> aren't special effects or costume, they're real safety goggles I found <em>way</em> in the back of a store cupboard at school.<br/>
I have some of those too. But I like how these turned out. They really work for keeping thing out of my eye, but I would never expect them to replace any of my real saftey goggles. I mostly made these after watching Young Frankenstein at thee in the morning.
For being something made out of a PET bottle they look really good. When I looked at the first pics I thought " Oh man, this will just look like crap..." but the end result is really impressive. Good work.
I used leather because I have a bunch, and it is the same leather that la-z-boy makes their chairs out of. And I can see out of them quite well, but the pic looked better with them on my forhead.
if you want a more breathable(and cheaper if you mess up) material get some fabric, normal masking tape, and shoe polish after you cut out the fabric cover it in tape going every which way and then rub show polish over it. (this was a trick to make faux leather i saw on the mickey mouse club back in the day and i've always wanted something to do with it)
I think I might try this, mabey with poweraide or gatoraide caps so I can put it on over my eyes I'll probably use pleather though.
