Bought an old pair of vintage goggles from ebay, stuck some one way gold film to the inside of the lens (the stuff you use to tint car windows)
Sprayed the front of the lens with a little car brake tinting paint
I'd love to do another pair, i'm still not overly happy with them... though I didn't wear them much at the conventions i took them to, people kept running off with them And i'd offer them to other more awesome Alucards too
But there is no way you need this much. You only need about 1/2 a metre and that is only if you mess up every time, like i said this stuff is very fiddly to work with; it's very easy to get bubbles in it when you're sticking it to the back of the lenses
Oooh yeah! (just got my Hellsing Volume 3 out for the first time in ages) That's true I had forgotten.
I guess you could say I have a like/dislike relationship with Hellsing, since it's not strong enough to use the words love/hate. I like it enough to read about it and tell myself that sometime I should collect the manga, but I don't like it enough to actually act on the impulse. Volume 3 is the only volume I have. There is something in there past the blood and gore (although, like Berserk, blood and gore is part and parcel of the series), but since I'm not a hardcore fan as yet I suppose it's a series I keep in reserve.
