Steampunk goggles modified to fit camera flashes inside the eyes so they remotely ‘flash’ or light up when the camera takes a photo.
Below are some quick shots of how I accomplished this. I would post a full tutorial about modifying the flash, but…I really don’t want anyone trying this. I shocked myself more times than I can count attempting this, and don’t recommend it to anyone.
The completed ‘flash goggles’ with the flash cases behind them
The first flash I modded to have the bulb external
Made a “cup” of tinfoil to hold the majority of light in
Fitted the bulb inside
Added a layer of diffusing paper behind the lens
First test, lots of light leaks
Back of the eye socket completed…just used hockey tape to cover it all (it’s all I had)
Added a solid piece of vinyl on each eye to make it look nice
All sealed up :)
Testing the sides for light leaks
“Flash glasses” made with the same flashes…just a proof of concept sort of thing And now, some images with these goggles…. (Slightly NSFW!)
