Snippy-Sniper Goggles by Sol4rpleXus Snippy-Sniper Goggles by Sol4rpleXus
This is the beginning of my cosplay.

In case you're wondering about the lenses: 2 layers of glasses with 2 layers of cyan theatric gel in between. If I took only 1, it would have been too bright and you could see my eyes all the time.

The 2 layers of glass are holding them together perfectly. :3

Hey Zaci.
So this is what they look like up close? Niiice. I got a different pair off Etsy recently that the seller had already customized to look like Snippy goggles and I'm kinda disappointed with them. They are a bit too big...and sticky. o_O Plus there are significant flaws and ugh... Think I'm gonna get a pair of these instead and paint them. What kinda paint did you use on 'em? They don't look sticky.

This model is pretty old... they were updated a few more times. That's what they look like now: [link]
I just took everything apart and airbrushed black acrylic paint on the gum part. The white parts were painted with acrylic paint and i used tape to cover the hard black part. take the glasses out before u start painting, and keep all the parts separated until its dry.
hope that helps

Ah. Im also working on my own Snippy costume, but for the goggles, I planned on just taking some thin blue plastic sheets and threading them between the glass and the plastic casing, like a popcorn kernal stuck between your tooth and your gums. Then, just line the area around the lens with thin blue LED lights attatched to a battery pack hidden in the jacket.

Ah sounds interresting. But doesn't that light blind you when you wear it?
I think the welding goggles with the blue foils are perfect especially cuz they glow automatically when light is reflected in them in some way, like here [link] [link] [link] . :3

Well, I assume you can control the light with the amount of power you put through. I might splice some wire from Christmas light controls with a battery pack and LED tube lights. I hope they are rather thin though. I'm putting them in there in such a way that the contrast hides my eyes, but still allows me to see, like those one way mirrors used for interrogation. I only assume this because there is more light on the outside than the inside, which will be dimly lit. If that doesnt work, I'll take your approach. :3

I've never heard of theatric gel before--I'll have to find some of this stuff. It'd be good for a cosplay I'm working on, so that no one'll be able to see my eyes.

Does it make it hard to see indoors?

Well it's not really a "gel" but in english it's called so. It's a foil you put in front of lights to change the color of the light. People also use it for photography.
I had to use 2 layers of foil to make it a bit harder to see my eyes but if there is really bright flash light coming from a camera, they will still see through.

Something else if you have old sunglasses you dont need anymore that have reflective glass, take them out and use em for whatever you need. :3

OK. That looks perfect. How did you paint it? I mean, the white paint - what kind of paint did you use? I'm asking, 'cause I've tried to paint my goggles with a spray and it didn't turn out that well. xD

By the way, I can't wait to see the full cosplay! : )

If you paint with a spray, make sure to rough the surface up with a soft sand paper first, so the color can apply properly.
I used acryl paint for model building. =)

Thanks!

temarcia Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Hmm, maybe I'll buy acryl paint then. My main problem was to keep painting the exact surface I wanted to paint. It ended up with paint being on whole goggles, and I had to washed it with a diluter. xD
Thanks for your advice! : )

You took it apart, and put it together again? That sound like a lot of work! I didn't even know, that was possible. xD I'm afraid that, if I did something like that, I would destroy those goggles.

Did you try taping over the areas you didn't want painted? That's what I usually do when I'm using spray paint.

:icontemarcia:
temarcia Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, I should have done that. But I thought, that would be hard to do *lazy*. But, since I have to paint it again anyway, I'll probably try with a tape. Thanks for your advice! : )
