ohman Batou is so badass!

Badass! For the eye lenses could you use spirit gum or some kind of prosthetic adhesive? Shape/Mould the lens frames to follow the contours of your face so you'd need as little adhesive as possible? Tricky. Good luck with this costume, I'm interested to see how it turns out.
