Riddick´s Goggles Replica

Hi everybody here´s our version of the famous goggles that Vin Diesel used when filming "The Chronicles of Riddick"(Universal Studios 2004).
After trying several materials we decided to use Platinum Silicone from Burman Industries instead of latex.It´s made in one single piece but we added a velcro strip at the back of the headband to addapt the customer´s head perimeter.
Very light(60 gr) and comfortable to wear.Very dark lenses but I can´t assure you whether it´s 100% UV protected or not,I don´t trust the stickers.
Great flexibility and durability.Fully made from scratch and 99,9% screen accurate.

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

Cool. Did you made it yourself? The most complex replicated costume i ever saw is one very realistic full body equipment Sam Fisher outfit with suit, PDA, weaponry and green glowing goggles. It had been made by one french guy and you can see him wearing it on youtube . smile

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

Thanks Manager,
I knew already that site,they just sell copies from the goggles used in Pitch Black and are different than the ones used in TCOR.(frame and headband)
Curious thing about the goggles modelled for AoDA and EFBB is that the SBZ guys used a combination of the PB frame with chronicles´headband!
I´ve sent a copy to Mr.Johansson so that next time they use the right prop for 3-D modelling purposes,je,je,je

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

OK, this has turned into something of a Starbreeze team activity now.

We have the goggles, and one of the other guys here has some signed Ulaks, so tomorrow at lunchtime we will do a photoshoot with a high res SLR camera of (at the moment about 10 of us, maybe more soon) us sneaking around the office. Getting coffe as if we were riddick, microwaving food, you get the idea smile

Keep your eyes on this space!

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

Im actually suprised by how many people already have shaved heads here, so rest assured there will be quite a few riddick alikes, but remember that we spend all day developing, and not much time pumping iron, so be nice about our small small muscles smile

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

OK just a quick upate, we took the photos a while ago, but have been literally swamped with stuff to do recently.

With any luck I'll get the photos up on some kind of photo sharing site today.

keep your eyes peeled for more info!

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

OK another update, as we would like to retain copyright for the photos we can't just whack them up on any old site, so sideshowrob (that name still makes me laugh) is investigating further. I think Flickr is the most likely candidate as you can retain copyright when posting photos there. If anyone has any great suggestions, then let us know!

Also we are super busy at the moment, so this week may not happen, but hopefully by the end of next week, I will have something to tell you. smile

Re: Riddick´s Goggles Replica

Woot! Thanks Fernando! You said you were posting them and I had to register and see!

I'm not a die-hard Riddick fan, but I am still a fan none the less. I always liked Pitch Black even before I knew they were going to be doing a big block buster sequel. The idea the night vision... just awesome.

Anyways, my eyes are really sensitive to light and being in band playing in dark bars and concert halls is usually ok... that is until you dump alot of money into a huge light show... so basically I've been flying blind for awhile. I tried regular sunglasses, but people would take them off... steal them... or they would simply get flung off when I started bouncing around. It gets expensive. So totally as a joke one day I said I was going to strap them on my head with a bungy cord, LOL! My drummer said I would look like Riddick... I was like yeah... that would be cool...

So the perilis search online began... I found lots of imitations... lots of biker goggles that were not so stylish, and  few really expensive knock-off's on a popular auction site. Needless to say, I was starting to give up. Then I found Fernando and started begging... two weeks later, I'm rocking out and having a blast!

These goggles are perfect in everyway. If you wear them for awhile, I do recomend a de-fogging solution like swimmers use, (thanks for the tip Fernando) but they are awesome and the envy of everyone around!

I just thought I would chime in and say hello and give my two cents! These goggles rock!
