Well, if you're going to do a post with mad scientists in mind, you might
as well start things off with an image of the maddest scientist of them all.
So the other day, a radio mad scientist/buddy of mine who--in accordance with my own rules for Instant Internet Anonymity--I'm gonna call R-Law asked if I had done a post about mad scientist goggles yet. And guess what, Internets? I hadn't, but as you're about to see, I'm going to remedy that oversight very, very shortly.
So today, it's goggles on HH. Because mad scientists wouldn't look as mad without them. Or as scientisty, either.
First up are a pair of embossed leather goggles (hush, PETA) in a rather pretty color of green. It's almost the color that comes to mind when I think of absinthe (which I've never even seen in real life, so as to whether its actual color comes anywhere even remotely close to the one I've imagined in my head or not remains to be seen.)
If I've retained anything from pop culture, mad scientistry covers a wide variety of areas. Yeah, smoking flasks and Jacob's ladders may be involved here and there, but there's also the possibility that freeze rays and machines that convert lightning into shock paddles are going to need worked on. Which is why I'm including this pair of welder's goggles, because fashion and safety should go hand in rubber-gloved hand.
Of course, there's also something to be said for being completely useless but pretty. Which is pretty much how I'm classifying this pair of flowery goggles, although the shop selling them does give you the option of leaving some of the floweriness out so that you can actually see through them.
And finally, just because I'm sure mad scientists need to have some sort of aviatorial skills (how else are they going to deploy their creation upon the masses or, failing that, fly away to their secret lair on the moon?) here's an aviator cap complete with goggles:
And on that note, see you Friday!
