Picture of Steampunk Goggles
Im not really sure if this is an instructable, because im pretty much just saying what i did, not really step by step. Also, some of the pictures have reddish tints to them because i dont know how to shut off the flash on my camera so i held my hand over it and it shined through my flesh when the picture was taken.

Step 1: The base.

Picture of The base.
This part was created out of an old soccer ball. The soccerball goes all the way around, i tried to cut it out in the shape of a baseball. Because thats what i saw on the other instructables. But i didnt have a baseball lol.

Step 2: The goggle part.

Picture of The goggle part.
These were created out of can tops. I wanted 2 of the same of the little one but it still looks good i think. I then proceeded to cut out the middle, and when i got to the edges, i bent them in and i think it looks cool. They were kind of a gold color but i sanded parts to reveal the silver. Looks pretty sweet. At least i think. lol. They were hot glued on. The lens itself was originally created out of a cd case. It was perfect i think. Very hard to cut though because it was so brittle. If your looking at them, the one on the right is still cd. The one on the left is now made out of a circle cut out of a 2 liter soda bottle. They were hot-glued in.

Step 3: Strap

Ok this was made out of a stretchy strap from a pair of my boxers that were too small. Attached to 2 clip things i took from one of my moms purses :) i dont think she knows. These were in turn, connected to two grommets, which were connected to two leather strings, connected to the soccerball part.

Step 4: Nose thingy

I did have a miniature baseball but not big enough to make eye thingys out of. So i used it to make a nose strap thing. I sewed it on.
Looks great maybe adding gears and some paint could work if u like.

not bad, but not exactly steampunk
Yeah, very cool looking but more post nuclear punk.
Yey the apocalypse! :D

Well done! I think making them out of cans is a great idea! really makes it look like it was made out of necessity as opposed to bought form a store. Great job! I can't wait to see more!

You should be able to turn the flash off - it'll be under a menu perhaps? But if you can't how about using black electrical tape instead of you fingers?

That is a good idea, although ill ask my dad how to turn it off, its his camera he will prolly know.
