Well, firstly i need to point out, these are in no way steampunk. They are 100% Cyberpunk, which is 100% more awesome! I would suggest starting off with finding some cheap normal round goggles to mount aluminium onto. If you wanted this effect, and an easy to use material, PVC pipes and fittings could easily be given a good paint job.

oh and the real problem in recreating these would be the silicone eye peices... you c=can see them on the 4th picture... and the weird looking rivets in the front and side of thee goggles and excuse my confusion with steampunk i totally knew they were cyberpunk... on a cybergothh site...

Well, for the bolt on the front, you could just saw down some bolts and glue them on. As for the back silcon, thats where a cheap pair of goggle or glasses could be used.

i was thinking 2 identical peices of pipe medium to thick... with a reasonable diameter... it would probably be cheaper than aluminum round stock...
