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?
