I have to admit, it was a bit daunting at first - with all the spectacular builds out
here on the forum - but since I was committed to dressing up as a Ghostbuster
for Halloween this year I've decided to take the leap and share with you the
fruits of my labour. I know they're not screen accurate, I know they're not perfect,
but I'm kinda proud of how they turned out considering I had no idea what I was
doing. Credit where credit is due though: I was inspired by the following members
and their goggle builds: Kingpin & Ecto Vader. Thanks dudes, for your posts! I
used what you did to shape what I did.
Please also forgive me if this thread is formatted wonky. I'm using tapatalk on my
iPad to post this so I can include pictures and for some reason, it's not letting me
see what I'm typing past a certain point so I've resorted to hitting return to
complete my sentences. Ugh. Technology has betrayed me.
So anyways, since I was on a budget I opted to go for the welding goggle frames
and PVC connectors. Unfortunately, all I could find were a pair of soft sided
vinyl goggles from Home Depot which cost around $17.
And some pvc connectors:
I removed the welding glass and replaced it with bass wood with holes cut out
to fit the pvc.
I painted the bass wood black:
Then I screwed on two pieces of wood to the sides of the goggles to make them
look more like the night vision goggles that is favoured by most on this site.
I used apoxy sculpy to fill in the gaps:
Then sanded the sides down. Oh, and I painted the connectors too!
