Focus month: Optics, half and two thirds

I'm a blank image because this stupid WP layout is stupid and makes an ugly forced image if I'm not here

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.

Feather mask/red lens: 3/4

There’s movement to the red lens, at least, which I like.

Feather mask/red lens: lens up

The second piece is super useful and more utilitarian.
Magnifier glasses: right side

It magnifies like a badass.

Magnifier glasses: in action

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!
