Spooky Latex Monocles That Look Like Bone And Metal
LA-based mask maker, prop builder, and FX makeup artist Kristen Phillips has created a gorgeous collection of spooky steampunk monocles under the name of S. Anomalous. All of the seven different designs were inspired by “nature, mythology, history, architecture and the supernatural.” Even though they are all made of flexible latex and laser-cut plastic lenses, they do look as if they’re made of bone and metal. This makes them look heavy and authentic, although in reality they are fairly light and comfortable.
All of the monocle designs can be paired up with gorgeous straps – there are quite a few to choose from. The artist recommends attaching the monocle prosthetics to your skin by using pros-aide adhesive, though.
“Once it’s glued on, you’re good to go for a day/night of masquerading, costume balling, carnivaling, dancing, bacchanalian feasting, general partying, whatever,” writes Phillips. ”Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to get your monocle on while doing laundry or taking out the trash either.”
