Saw this tutorial -> [link]
...And remembered I'd been wanting to make a pair. It was hitsuzen. =w=

I think they look a little silly actually being worn(normal), but I'll probably wear them around my neck from now on just in case I have to suddenly cut up an onion or get caught in a dust devil. It's best to be prepared for such things, really.

Jar caps and a bunch of stuff I had lying around. I did go buy those little round things though.
The fur looks a little weird, I'm not sure what it is to be honest. Someone gave me a bunch of vintage fur collars and such to cut up for crafts, and that on was the weirdest. They called it camel, but I think maybe it's sheep. Then again, I've never seen a camel up close so what do I know? =w=;;

Btw, I'll trade my sou~er, artwork, for some suede. ;___; I wanted this to be black or dark brown, but all I had was that red/orange stuff... It was only just barely enough too.

It's 12 now... I feel nonsensical...

do they actually have lenses?

It does look like they have lenses.

You may be blind, I can see the lenses clearly. Though they are not reflective, I can see the blur within the glass.

I think the red/orange hue makes it so much better. C:

.........I WOULD SO BUY THAT. I can't get ANYTHING around where I live. The craft store near me sells NOTHING. NOTHING AS IN CRAYOLA CRAFTS AND FAKE FLOWERS. The other craft store a town over sells only drawing, painting and drafting material. The only pow wow near me has stuff for sale around $50+ D: I got lucky and bought a small rabbit skin for less than $10 ;-; It's a nice table cover to keep glass things on .__. I should use it for something else.

I might put it on eBay, or make another pair once I get more suede later this month. I want to make a black pair with green lenses. *___*
Ouch. >.O Try thrift stores..? You might be able to find better craft stuff, or cheap jackets and such to cut up for material.

Those should only be about $6, tops. Maybe a bit more if they have printed patterns... .___.;;
It's kinda hard to cut stuff like that up at first. =w=; What would you make?

D: Darnit...I can't use EBay >> My dad banned me from EBay for trying to sell some of my old things that he said "was still useable". Those things are still sitting in my basement with tons of dust on them. I should try and make my own goggles. It would go well with my upcoming Gryphon cosplay .__.

...There's one thrift store in town, but it belongs to the private school and is open only during a certain time of the year (I don't know when). Plus, whenever my parents do buy old used stuff, they make me wear them. They are horrified at the fact that you can cut old things up to make craft stuff with. They severely limit my crafting abilities D8

New Jersey sucks. The taxes are so high that the Native Americans kinda have to adjust prices for that. NJ's not so nice to minorities or poor people...-coughCamdencough-
I don't know what I'd make out of the rabbit's too nice and soft and nice to do anything with it currently. Maybe if I get a picture of it you can give me ideas?
