    Another master piece from Gogglerman. True quality is had to find but you keep delivering. Do you have an esty ( account? I can't find you there.

    For a moment there I thought you were refering directly to me, my surname is actually "Hobby".

    Pity about ETSY, your work is much better than anything on there.

    Keep up the good work.

    P.S Do you have photos of your complete goggle collection? I think everyone would like to see that!

    Thank you for your interest in my work. Group picture "collection" does not exist. Make a photo is almost impossible, as some of my works have found their new owners (say so):)

    There can easily be too much steampunk. For example; cheap, mass-produced goggles and repainted Nerf guns. It's always great to see someone make something themselves though, so this idea is quite welcome in my books.

    Supply and Demand gentlemen; there will only be too much steampunk when there is nobody left to demand it : )
