La Marquise Salon and DPro marketing contacted me a few months ago to supply some steampunk goggles and accessories for a promotional video. Unfortunately I only had a few pairs in stock at the time, but they were still able to use them, as well as the Kraken Blaster. The results are pretty cool. Special thanks to Chris Campbell and Chris Young.

Originally designed for spotters on airships, these goggles have dual removable magnification lenses to allow for adjustments for viewing different distances. Sadly only one pair of the lenses showed up with the goggles.
Featuring a fully adjustable head chain and solid brown base, these google look great on almost any headgear, including of course your eyes.
These are a relatively light weight goggle and could be worn comfortably for an extended period of time, as was necessary for spotters. The lens cups will fit flush against your face, protecting your eyes from the elements.
These goggles were discovered in a Dirigible Engineer’s old toolbox. They have a hard, green shell with a nice textured leather strap. On your right eye is some kind of alignment ring and two adjustable magnification lenses. The other eye has a device attachment made of shafts, one ending in a gear and a spring loaded arm. Not being a Dirigible Engineer myself I have no idea the purpose to this. It would seem to be another type of alignment mechanism, mayhap it attached into something allowing for minute adjustments. These seem the kind of goggles that when you need them they are the only device that will do that particular job, whatever it may be.

As automatons become more and more sophisticated these days, it’s becoming difficult to identify them. These goggles feature an enhanced listening attachment to amplify the sounds of the inner gear workings of automatons. A resonator lens on one side also aids in the detection. Metal frames with fully adjustable ear attachment. Fully adjustable elastic strap.
Spent part of this beautiful day at the World Steam Expo. It was about what I expected it to be. Some brilliantly dressed beautiful people.
Found a nice leather hat, which was my main goal.
Hoping to help them out next year, and maybe even display in the art show.
Update: Due to scheduling conflicts (didn’t find out when set up was until late last night) I won’t be able to exhibit any of my creations at the World Steam Expo Art Show as hoped. :(
Look for these goggles to be available soon here and on the ETSY SHOP.
Here are some ‘unaltered’ photos of the goggles I will be displaying at the World Steam Expo Art show. As of now some still don’t have names. The last pair may or may not make it, still waiting on the main piece for them but I wanted to tease the 3 people that visit my site.
Spent most of the day today crafting new goggles. 2 pair that were almost done are now completed. As 2 pair that weren’t even thought of before today made it to 90% completion as well. All in all a good day of goggling. Images to come soon, for now here is a sneak peek of the 90% pairs.
