How-to: Digimon's Tai Goggles by Colt-kun How-to: Digimon's Tai Goggles by Colt-kun
I'm doing a Digimon cosplay group with Bad Wolf Productions, and I'm cosplaying Tai. My problem was I could NOT find a pair of goggles that looked anything like his to save my life. One guy made them as commissions, but they were way too much money.

So I decided I had to make my own, and share a how-to. These are a PROP, and in no way are functional goggles.

Pictures of the costume to come!

My cosplay ^ Your tutorial really helped me! Though i couldnt find white waterbottles, i found two hard plastic coffee mugs and had my dad cut an inch off the top. I gurilla glued the elastic to the rim of the cups and it suprisingly worked! Lol!

2.5-3 inches across. Dunno about around. (I may have literally held them to my head to see if they were the right size...)

it's up to you, really. I used one inch wide, but it might look better to you if it was smaller.

the elastic holding the goggles is black, the headband is blue. They're separate parts, as seen in season 2 when he gives them to Daisuke.

I do sell them for 20 plus shipping (usually a few bucks in the states, more to other countries).

Yay, then I can has goggles, out of curiosity though, would it be possible to make a second pair modified to be more like sunglasses? D:

like sunglasses? You mean with the plastic side pieces to go over your ears instead of the strap? Hmm. A challenge. I shall have to see if it is possible. I think so...

sorry it took so long to get back to you, I was checking on supplies for tinted goggles. Yes, I can make them P: Do you want them a true black, or just darker?

The regular pair would be 20, and the tinted pair 25, plus shipping.
