Postapocalyptic Leather Goggles
I ordered the lenses from a shop that sells such things (for reference: AC Red Tifosi Strada lens) and broke out the ol' bison side so that it'd have a good weathered look. The lens are sandwiched between that bison and some stoned oil and there's a little bit of deerskin to act as a noseguard mostly for comfort. Without the edge of the leather rides directly on the skin and gets a little annoying after awhile.
I wasn't entirely sure how well the buttons would work to fix the whole thing closed but they turned out to work pretty well. I had been concerned they wouldn't fasten tightly enough or would fasten too tightly but it turns out they worked pretty perfectly.
I'd originally envisioned something less mask-ish and more goggly but I reckon these will work pretty darn well for keeping those pesky UVs out of my eyes while wandering the Wasteland.
