Build Vi goggles, simple walkthrough

How to go from this generic punk goggles to a pair good enough for Vi herself, in this tutorial I will cover how to build Vi goggles. For the other tutorials click here. 

There aren't that many good photos of the goggles I want to make (since as always the in game model is different)


But this lovely pair made by Vensy Meow on etsy made everything much easier for me.

I wanted my glasses to be cheap and quick to make. So I started out with the most generic "punk" goggles you can find on ebay, added some paper clay, sanded it down and painted it gold.

Paper clay


Remove the padding (it was too big). Add some smaller padding and paint the outer edges black.







There are still some detailing and last touches needed, but this is roughly how I did it. (yes, I got gold paint on the lenses, derp). But that gold mist can be removed with nail polish remover, see result under:
