Acid Brushes

You don’t, huh? They’re called acid brushes because once upon a plumber they were used to apply acid flux to pipes for soldering. Now they’re just the cheap, disposable brushes with hollow aluminum handles you see in glue pots and everywhere else folks need to slather on goopy stuff. Measure 6" long with 5/8” wide bristles.

Steampunk?

These non-fog not-really-welding goggles are just what you need to cap off your costume. Sure, the flip-up dark lenses are too dark to see through easily (that's why they have conventional clear plastic lenses underneath them), but leaving them flipped up just adds to your zany, adventurous, steampunk persona. Aesthetics include side vents and an adjustable elastic head strap. And the goggles accept standard 50mm replacement lenses, but if you think the party is going to be that rough, we suggest that it would be cheaper and easier to just buy a couple of pairs at this price-from-the-past.
