Creepy Yellow Eyeball pirate eye patch red leather handmade masquerade costume larp Halloween

This handmade pirate eye patch is unsettlingly creepy and mesmerizingly beautiful. An orange-ringed yellow iris shines in sparkling detail on a white sclera, which makes the iris stand out even more against the red leather eye patch from which the eyeball appears to emerge. The leather has a subtle veining texture etched into the surface, emanating from the center. If you're looking for the finishing touch to your creepy pirate costume for the Renaissance Fair or Halloween masquerade, you've found it!

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).
