Handmade Leather Eye Patch plain color black red green blue or purple, handmade pirate costume for Halloween, cosplay, masquerade, LARP, Renaissance fair
Awaken your inner pirate with this quality handmade leather eye patch. Simple, plain and unembellished, this eye patch is for the pirate who doesn't mess around with fancy words and flamboyant bling. (If you ARE looking for an eye patch with a bit of bling, there may be one to suit your fancy in my shop, so don't walk the plank just yet! See the last photo for examples of other designs.)
Choose a color: black, red, green, blue, or purple.
I make other eye patch designs as well (see the last photo for 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 eye patch. Please get your doctor's approval if you intend to use this over or in lieu of a medical eye patch.
Fun fact: 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 eye patch 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).
