See-through Playing Card Eye Patches, red leather heart, diamond, club, or spade handmade masquerade, magician, larp, Halloween, or pirate cosplay costume

Suit

This high-quality collection of see-through playing card eye patches is perfect for poker night, a magician costume, or a high-rolling masquerade party. Deck yourself out with the one that suits you best, and turn your tell into a true poker face. Whether you’re a joker or a serious player, you’ll look and feel like a winner.

Choose from heart, diamond, club, or spade. The red-dyed handmade leather eye patches have the suit shape cut out and backed with transparent black fabric. They are fastened with adjustable black slip-knot cotton cords.

The visibility while wearing this eye patch is pretty good, considering you’re looking through fabric out a smallish hole. Vision is still somewhat limited and a bit shaded, especially in poorly lit conditions, but it gives you a far better range of vision than a standard opaque eye patch.

I make other masquerade costume / pirate cosplay eye patch designs as well (see the last photo for a few examples).

This handmade eye patch is made of durable hardened leather and can be worn over either the left or right eye. Each eye patch fastens with lightly waxed black cotton cords, tied with sturdy sliding knots which are fully adjustable to fit men, women, and teens. I opted not to use elastic, as it can tend to stretch and wear out quickly -- also because I just don't like the way it looks and feels. The knotted cotton cords look and feel more stylish and professional, in my semi-humble opinion.

Please use caution and common sense when wearing an eye patch, as it can cause loss of depth perception and balance (and, of course, you lose a large portion of your range of vision as well). Do not wear a costume eyepatch while driving to the Halloween masquerade (or anywhere else). This is not a medical eyepatch. Please get your doctor's approval if you intend to use this over or in lieu of a medical eye patch.

Mythbusters did a piece about eye patches which showed the probable reason the eye patch is such an iconic wardrobe staple for pirate costumes. It's not because pirates were always losing an eye, but because the eyepatch helped them see better when they had to go from a bright sunny deck to the darkness below decks. They simply switched the patch to their other eye when they went below, so that the eye that had been shielded did not have to adjust to the darkness (which can take up to half an hour). 

Of course, the see-through eye patch functions a little differently than the standard pirate eye patch. A savvy customer of mine requested an eye patch that allows better visibility, and these designs are descendants of that experiment!
