How-to: Digimon's Tai Goggles

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!

I'd wager some plastic primer spray would work

how big around are the bottles you used?
Colt-kun's avatar
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...)

One more question. What size elastic? 1in, 3/4in etc.

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

Hmm since I didnt have a hot glue gun, I had to go make due with super glue, which works just as fine :-)

Would like having. :P

Just need blue elastic for perfect imitation. XD

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.

Aw I see then. Would still buy a commission pair if selling. :D
