Steampunk goggles are a must-have accessory for anyone interested in this fascinating subculture. Whether you’re a mad scientist, an air pilot, or a Victorian dandy, you will need some goggles to pull your look together!
Goggles are protective glasses with side shields that keep dirt, oil, sparks and wind out of your eyes. They’re commonly worn by firefighters, scientists and construction workers, among others.
Victorian Compass Goggles
Whether you’re dressing up as an engineer, scientist or Victorian adventurer, a good pair of goggles is essential. Not only do they protect your eyes from UV rays and glare, but they also help you keep an eye out for bugs or dangers on the ground.
The Victorian Compass Goggles are handmade in the USA and aptly named because of their double eye loupes and emerald green lenses. They’re perfect for cosplay, LARP, convention or rave costumes, and can even be used as a unique piece of decor.
This is a great gift for a fellow adventurer, steampunk fanatic, or anyone that enjoys an unusual accessory. The compass design is not the only cool thing about this item – they’re also very durable and lightweight. They also have an adjustable head strap that will fit almost any head size. The best part is you’ll get a pair for less than your local costume shop would charge for one.
Crystal Prism Goggles
Our crystal prism goggles are the perfect accessory for anyone who loves a bit of steampunk style. Featuring double eye loupes, compass symbology and green lenses, these quirky gadgets are sure to catch attention wherever you wear them.
They can be worn over your eyes, on the brim of your hat or even resting on top of your head. They are ideal for EDM concerts, raves and any other occasion that requires a bit of a steampunk theme.
These glass kaleidoscope goggles will take your imagination on a psychedelic visual journey, pulling you into a state of trance. They are great for a range of events such as firework shows, festivals and carnivals.
They are also popular with kids – especially children who love the play of light and color, and these crystal prisms look wonderful on lamp shades. You can even use them to teach your child about science (reflection and refraction) or as an imaginative tool for creative play.
Boilermonster Nautilus Goggles
Steampunk designer Kimric Smythe, aka Boilermonster, took an old pair of German safety goggles and converted them into a pair of truly nautical-looking specs. Brass and steel cog wheels, rivets and lens frames give these glasses a crusty, weathered look that matches the ocean’s depths.
These are a must-have for steampunk seafarers who need a pair of goggles that can be easily changed out based on the light conditions. Photochromic lenses are a great option for this purpose because they adjust their tint based on current lighting conditions.
Glade’s Adapt 2 is an exceptional value for this category, offering six different photochromic lens options and performing well under a range of lighting conditions. The lenses adapt quickly and provide an excellent level of optical enhancement.
Elle Paisley Steampunk Goggles
Goggles are a common accessory for Steampunk enthusiasts. Besides protection from the wind, they also protect your eyes from sparks, hot steam and dangerous chemicals.
In addition to protecting your eyes, goggles can also be used as an accent piece in a steampunk costume. They can be made from copper or leather, and come with spikes to add an extra touch of glamour.
This pair of Steampunk Goggles were designed by Burlington, VT-based Elle Paisley. She repurposed vintage Wilson driving glasses into this design, which features two optical loupes that fold down over the right eye and a jeweler’s magnifier on the left lens.
They have a very Victorian look, and would be perfect for a gentleman who works on steam engines. The dark leather and brass parts make this an awesome accessory.
