Godot visor advice
Hey everyone,

I'm in the middle of making the visor belonging to the Phoenix Wright character Godot and could use some advice on what to use for the red part of his visor.

Reference pic:

My first thought was to use acetate but my eyes would still be visible through that, particularly in bright lighting and in photos.

I've seen a cosplayer on Deviantart use some kind of reflective plastic that, according to the description he posted, allows him to see through it but stops other people seeing his eyes.

Pic below:

I've tried contacting the cosplayer with no success, so does anyone here know what this material could be, or know of a good alternative? My searches haven't turned up any satisfactory results so far and I'd rather not use something like acetate that would allow my eyes to be seen when there are clearly much better options available!

It looks like the red window film I used for my NCR mask - I was recommended this by others who've done red-tinted lenses. It's not impossible to see through it from the front, but it's a lot less clear than perspex or acetate. It does cut out a bit of light, but I didn't have any real problems with it. You're meant to peel off the backing and stick it to pre-existing lenses, but if it's inside a mask like that you should just be able to carefully glue it to the inside without it crumpling.

That looks fantastic (and so does your NCR mask), thank you! Seems like exactly what I need - nice and cheap too
