Spiral pirate eye patch in blue white or red on black leather handmade Halloween masquerade costume cosplay

Color
Cobalt Blue Spiral
White Spiral
Dark Red Spiral

A spiral symbol is carved into the leather of this handmade pirate eye patch, and painted your choice of cobalt blue, bold white, or dark red. Choose white on black to stand out and be noticed from a distance, or blue or red if you prefer a more subtle splash of color to brighten up the masquerade. Swashbuckle in style when you add this eye patch to your pirate cosplay costume.  

The spiral is an ancient symbol of the sun, and is one of the most elegant forms found in nature.

I make other eye patch designs as well (see the last photo for examples). 

This high-quality 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).
