Only ten days left in the month and I’ve only two of my hoped-for four eyepiece things done. That is fine! Now that TBA (a ten-day art fest that we went to almost every day) is over I can hopefully whip them out.
The first one I wanted to go as far away as I could from steampunk-ness. It’s a costume piece, not a useful one, but I like it. I had endless fun creating the density of surface embellishment.
There’s movement to the red lens, at least, which I like.
It magnifies like a badass.
Chase took all the pretty pictures and if you click through to Flickr there’s a quick summary of what materials are in each one.
Anyway, here’s the thing. I made these to make them because I like to make things. But I don’t want them. Do you want them? I’m thinking $25 each (which includes shipping) to take these dang things off my hands. Each one took about a complete day of work to put together, so that’s a stupid good deal. No takers and I’ll toss them up on Etsy.
Update: The feather one is called for!
Update 2: The magnifying one is called for! Do not be sad, I will hopefully have two more by the end of the month!
