Win a Pair of Brass-Colored Steampunk Goggles – $59.95 value (Ends 1/20)

In my long and sordid professional career, I’ve attend more than my fair share of comic book conventions. I was a regular attendee of San Diego Comic-Con back when it actually was pushing comic books more than the latest Hollywood release. Nothing against the current SDCC, but it’s gotten so ginormous, it can take you four hours to go from one end of the hall to the other, just because of the packed crowd.

Anyways, the coolest thing about these conventions (besides finally scoring my comic book Holy Grail:  Avengers #4!) was the costumes. Whether it’s a comic book, gaming or anime convention, detailed costumes (known as “cosplay” to you muggles out there) are the show within a show. Yes there are usually costume contests, but just walking around conventions, you can see hundreds, if not thousands of homemade costumes ranging from the absurd to the hysterical to the inspirational.

The more authentic a costume, the cooler it is. And when it comes down to the details, sometimes you need a real professional to help out. I recently discovered that an old industry friend of mine had his own company that makes… Steampunk Goggles. Talk about a niche market, right?

I don’t know much about the whole steampunk world, but I love the concept. A magical world where everything is run on, well, steam. But just as the Flintstones had dinosaurs replacing all of today’s modern devices, the steampunk worlds toss pipes, gears and loads of rivets on anything they can. It just looks crazy, awesome cool.  Tons of video games are set in this reality or at least touch upon it, from Bioshock to Epic Mickey.

It’s just, well, darn cool and unique.

Whether you’re elbow grease deep into steampunk or just love cool things, you’ll find a wide range of prices and styles on Steampunk Goggles.

As someone who needs glasses to keep from walking into walls, my lenses are like Coke bottles. That’s why I wear contacts. But if I lived in a world where my glasses were steampunk goggle-style, I think I’d be happy to wear them 24/7!

Prices on Steampunk Goggles range from roughly $40 up to $220 and you’ll find a crazy assortment of styles  (even a monocle!), lens colors, eye loupes, and loads more.

There’s also a really cool Steampunk Goggles Playing Cards Deck in the works… but they need your help! This really slick-looking deck of cards will be manufactured, but only if the Kickstarter goal of $24,000 is reached. (As of this writing, they were up to $19,941 with just 6 days to go!).

King of Spades Steampunk Goggles
So far this is my favorite card of the bunch. Love the interactive nature.

Every card in this illustrated deck features a character or object with a different pair of steampunk goggles. Check out this neat video about the entire creation process.

There are some pretty neat bonuses available for pledging too, including having your likeness appear on one of the cards! So help a steampunk brother out and go check out the Steampunk Goggles Playing Cards Deck Kickstarter and show some support. Even if it’s just $1, every buck counts. And if you can’t afford the $1, then just spreading the word can make a huge difference too!

To help raise awareness for this unique Kickstarter Campaign, Steampunk Goggles is offering my readers a chance at winning a pair of Steampunk Goggles for their own!

  1. The magnifiers actually do work, and they clip on and off. The colored lenses on the blue, purple & green pair are cellophane behind a clear lens, too, so you can remove the cello for a clear view of your minis 🙂

  2. I love the look and style of these goggles and would love to win them as a gift for my husband who would love them even more.

  3. I’m just thrilled this site exists! I had no idea! Also, it’s great that there are so many different styles, from lace to spikes. Very cool!

  4. love the intricate and careful detailing to bring out that victorian 19th century feel. also love the imagination that jJules Vern has left us in his writings to have designed a line of goggles so beautifully. it’s quite remarkable.

  5. I love everything about them! I especially love that they are Steampunk. I have a teen daughter that would scream for days if I won these for her!

  6. I’m not into the Steam-punk genre, but my teenage daughter would love these, especially with her long black leather coat and boots.

  7. I love that they all look so cool. My favorites are the Brass Filigree Steampunk Goggles because they are feminine without being girly.

  8. I love steampunk. I love Victorian decorations especially on functional objects. I think these googles Watchmaker’s Dream Steampunk Goggles are super cool. They look as if they’d be a great help in my cross-stitching 🙂

  9. Honestly, I love the goggles you have featured most of all. As one who visited the steampunk-inspired Metro station 3 times while in Paris (not to use it, mind you, just to ogle), it’s a travesty I don’t own these already. The work looks very professional and high-quality. This coming from someone who has seen her fair share of goggles already!

  10. My teenage son would think these are awesome. He has seen the Steampunk on TV Show and has said he would love to get a pair of these glasses. I just did not think they sold them. this is great!

  11. They’re so fun, all mad-scientisty. My husband is a scientist, and I always kind of picture him with goggles like this…

    Reply
  12. I love that they have so many unique and awesome designs! My husband is going to love all their stuff. I didn’t know that there is a Steampunk World Fair until reading about it on their site.

    Reply
  13. These are so cool looking and I love all the brass designs on them. I can see us rocking these out up here in the North Country. I would gladly send pics. These are awesome.

    Reply
  14. I own several loupes, including a pair of flip-down magnifying glasses like the King of Spades. They’re not as pretty as the goggles, but they do their job. I’m sure they’d love to have some goggle-y company.

  15. I first learned about Steampunk in a webisode of “The Guild” and have been in love with the style ever since. 2014 is my 2nd year of cosplaying. These would be super cool to win!

  16. Wow! I only just spoke with my very good friend of many years, Andrew, about putting this up on his site the other day and I am so surprised by how much it’s picked up! I can’t wait for the winner to be revealed so that I can ship you a pair. Hopefully you’ll send us some pictures rocking your new occular enhancements! It’s funny, this all came out of Andrew’s helping me with getting my steampunk’d deck of cards funded on Kickstarter (see awesome video widget to the right of the King of Spades, above – there are just 2.5 days left before the campaign ends). If you want to know a little about the back-story behind some of the goggle designers featured on our website, I talk about them in parts of the Kickstarter video. At any rate, I am absolutely thrilled that so many of you like these goggles and I am eager to send them to you!

  17. All the goggles are cool but I really love the Smokey Miner Goggles the most because I think my husband would love those. He is a miner so these would rock

  18. I really like the ones you are giving away and the HMS Bounty Ship’s Captain Nautical Goggles. I love the blue lenses. I think these are really cool. I like things that are ‘outside of the box’. They are very unique. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

  19. I love how every pair is so intricately designed! I think it’s awesome how protective they are, and my boyfriend looks extremely cute in them! I would love to get him a pair of these brass colored ones! We want to go to the Burning Man Festival, so these would be perfect for us! Thanks for the entry.

  20. I like how they look unique and how you automatically feel like you are a part of the industrialized/Victorian civilization when you have them.

  21. What’s not to love? Any of them would be perfect to complete my steampunk outfit. And it would be just in time for the Steam Powered Giraffe concert I’m going to

    Reply
  22. I love the variety available! They have one to fit every steampunk style, and since I know quite a bit about steampunk. I want one in every style!

    Reply
  23. These are so neat! They’re unique. They have beautiful style. They would be a great decoration for a bachelor apartment.
    I really like the HMS bounty pair.

  24. im a huge nerd and these are so freaking cool..now i want a steampunk outfit to go with them! i love the Aeronautical Couture Steampunk Goggles With Light, i think the light would come in handy.

  25. I love steampunk!I have a few pieces of steampunk jewelry.Nice selection on the site~one of my favorites is Vintage Lace & Pearl.

    Reply
  26. I like that SteamPunkGoggles.com is here to provide you with the most basic necessity for any steampunker: ocular security. Our various makes and models of goggles will provide comfort and protection while also making a proud statement of your affinity for all things hydraulic and Victorian.

  27. I think the overall design on these goggles is awesome! It’s even cooler that you can customize them your own way as well.

    Reply
  28. I love that they’re extra cool-looking but also appear to be quite functional. I’d wear them for light-duty work that requires eye protection (but wouldn’t harm the goggles), or maybe to turn some heads at the shooting range!

    Reply
  29. I love all of the pop culture-referenced goggles available on their site, especially the Emerald City and Doctor Who options!

    Reply
  30. This is something I know my daughter in law would love. She like the steam punk look and these googles have a nice retro look.

    Reply
  31. I pretty much love all things steampunk. Working on a couple of costumes for my husband and I to wear to an event later this year. He already has a pair of goggles and I love how unique all the different styles are so we can ‘match’ without having the exact same ones and still show uniqueness.

  32. I learned:Now we’re here, peddling one of our favorite contributions to steampunk flair: the goggles. We offer a range of riveting goggles including high-end fancy doo-dads as well as cheap steampunk goggles for sale; from utilitarian designs that will accent your style, to brass-colored goggles that are alive with embellishments that serve as centerpieces to your steampunk outfits

  33. I love that I don’t have to make my own, unique goggles. I can definitely find what I want here! And I really like the lens choices. I haven’t seen that anywhere else. Beautiful!!!

  34. I love EVERYTHING about Steampunk! What a great site, they have SO much! The whole look, the ambiance, the je ne sais quoi…..
