Chrononaut Mercantile Goggles Sweepstakes!

From Chrononaut Mercantile, our next sweepstakes is for a classy pair of goggles that you can designed yourself! Here’s what they have to say about them:

“Our aluminum goggles are made for versatility. They are milled from lightweight aluminum and the edges are covered in a soft garment leather for comfort and hand stitched in place. Then we add a strap of durable latigo leather and solid metal buckle.

The lenses and cover plates can be removed and exchanged. Handcrafted in our studio in Maine.”

If you are the lucky winner, you will have options in designing your goggles from the eyecups to the lenses. Enter in the comments!

Goodness knows I need new goggles for when I'm crawling around in the underbrush discovering new insect species. Count me in for a chance to win!
Sean Calhoun

I appreciate the practicality of using the allomantically inert aluminum. It will ensure that the goggles are not used against their wearer in a skirmish with a coinshot or lurcher.

Teawench
165. Prof. Upsidasium
I offer you the challenge of creating goggles that those of us who currently wear spectacles can enjoy with comfort. While I have been told that the glass in some goggles may be ground to perscription optical strength, this is a very costly proceedure. I am not looking to replace my spectacles, merely wear some fine accessory goggles over them. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration to this issue.
Teawench
166. Charles D
Those goggles are awesome. If you did the red and blue lenses, would that let you see in 3-D?

Who can't help but love these goggles? Interchangeable lenses and sleek appearance? The fusion of retro steampunk glam with modern styling! The fact you'll wow your friends year round and be protected from laser-pistol blasts, northern gales, and glare off the roads....

Good luck and thank you for bringing us Steampunk week once again!
