You could though make a plaster of paris mold of regular swimming goggles and then pour in molten aluminum, then ad padding and use a dremel to cut the slits, though it would be difficult because the aluminum would'nt coat, rather it form blobs -_- still could do it if you had a way to coat rather than pour, like maybe dipping it in multiple time

Sweet craftsmanship! May I suggest taking a patina solution to the insides to coat the solder? These can be obtained in various finishes and are available from stained glass suppliers.

These are WW1 snow goggles from the mountain warfare in the Alps between Austria & Italy... or copies patterened after. They were coincidentally most useful to stop the smaller shrapnel and rock splinters that occured in this warfare.

Why not just buy a pair of swim goggles for 2 bucks, paint them and scratch off the design.

well, in all honesty, compared to these, they would look exceedingly tacky and rubbish

It is possible to make and so. All depends on a sight at a subject.

These are the Rammstein goggles! Exactly the ones I want to make!!

but you look like a freak wearing those in public. these are good for looking normal and they're practical.

Great... But I like best the "Steampunk goggles": https://www.instructables.com/id/Steampunk-goggles-4/
