I find these goggles quite interesting. While real goggles help someone see/protect their eyes, these do neither of these things. Steampunk is known as being very elaborate and taking very functional useful things and making them needlessly look cool. These goggles take this to an extreme where they are JUST for show. They are purely a costume piece. I really enjoy how these embody the show aspect of steampunk. Also, they are just really nicely made with the different sized clock faces and the various gears and clockhands. Beautiful job.
