Hi guys

I have just watched the SDCC 09 video for the millionth time and I noticed that Bovine has some rather fetching mirrored lenses. I toyed with the idea of using some cheap sunglasses but can't find any big enough. Any ideas or alternate accessible material ?

I thought that his lenses looked a lot like a motorcycle helmet visor. $20-30 on ebay, probably...

Thank Hez you inspired me and what usually happens when I'm inspired? I pull a "Macguyver" I miss Aaron

This is so going to turn into a tutorial!


.'. Materials I used are Plastic from the front of my 9" Neca Alien figure (similar plastic or thin perspex is fine)
.'. Some van window tint I never got round to using
.'. Standard ruler
.'. Double sided tape.
.'. The SDCC 08 theme playing on itunes just because it's amazing to work on any project to :eek:

First I cut the desired amount of plastic from the box



Next I cut out the tint and left a 1" overlap

Then I double sided the laminated side and stuck the tint on face down (this leaves a reflective mirror finish) and trimmed the edges.

Voila instant mirror visor

Best of all this cost me £5 for just the tint (which technically I didn't pay for) ;)

Here's a before and after


With mesh

With lense

"That's all folks!" Tune in next time when I make a working cloaking device out of a bin bag and some sticky back plastic
