In this video I will show you how to make your own steampunk goggles that are inexpensive, yet will stand out in the sea of brass painted welding goggles. They are very easy to customize and make your own.

If you have made my top hat, you will already have most of what you need to complete this project. I think you will find that the craft foam is surprisingly durable when it is finished, and is easy to work with using common household tools.
****UPDATE*** You don't need to use liquid latex at all if you don't want to . Regular white glue works as well to stiffen up the middle section.
Go for it!
Magically turn foam into leather. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45Lxy_2lDw4&list=PLIbQjQ4h9ZxH-5CTIr0HZ6wlWgOiZzxWs&feature=share&index=1
