While researching an article for a bit later, I came across a unique kit which address a perennial issue vexing may a Steampunk enthusiast. Brass Goggle (the accoutrement, not the forum) are essentially iconic with the genre, but finding a good pair is a challenge. One sees beautiful sets in photo shoots, or perhaps even at a convention, but as far as having a unique set of your own…. that might be a bit expensive, to put it mildly. Finding a pair of welding goggles and applying a bit of paint has been the most common course of action – but perhaps not in the future….
Not sure exactly when they will be available for purchase, but I’m imagining that it will be sometime in the near future (based on what I’ve divined from their website). Still, if you have an image in your cranium of the perfect set of goggles, or simply need a few pieces to finish/fix your current set (they do sell parts as well), do pay the Borg Steam Factory, at: http://www.borgsteamfactory.com/index.html , or go directly to their goggles site, at: http://www.borgsteamfactory.com/goggles.html !
