Radioactive Hazard pirate eye patch handmade leather Halloween masquerade costume

Warn the other post-apocalyptic pirates that you're dangerous with this Radioactive Hazard leather pirate eye patch!  Internationally recognized as the radiation hazard symbol, the trefoil icon is carved into the leather, tooled to add depth and dimensionality, and then painted bright yellow and black.  Pirates foreign and domestic will know that you are not to be trifled with when you make this eye patch part of your costume.

I also make a see-through version of the Radiation Hazard eye patch, and I make other eye patch designs as well (see the last photo for a few examples).

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).
