Time to grow up.

Ladies and gentlemen, my friends and colleagues I am soon going to be serving in the armed forces of the great United States of America.

Period Film Review: Princess Kaʻiulani--Guest Blog by Evangeline Holland

Yep! Finally got more materials to make goggles with! =D Here's the latest pair, modeled off of a crow. The lenses are purple, and the left one has a silver crow skull on it. The wearer can see right through it, of course. I've just listed them over on my Etsy shop.
