  • Have you recently moved to a town with a populace mutated by pollution, radiation, or demonic forces, and you just don't fit in?

  • Do you think your face should reflect the dread you experience whenever you contemplate existence in an infinite, uncaring universe?

  • Is it tax season?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, we at KONGO! have eyes for you!


There are two versions - one with embossed veins, and one without.

The holes for the string are two different sizes. The larger holes are "up". (It was hard to tell which way was up without a some indication).

I sliced with Cura, and printed in ABS, fill at 100%. I printed without supports, but if you have trouble getting the eyes to stick to the build platform, supports or rafts might help.

I strung the eyeballs using transparent, elastic beading cord. To be specific, Stretch Magic Bead & Jewelry Cord, .5mm diameter. It is perfect for the job, but be sure to glue the knots because this stuff hates being tied. I'm sure any elastic string would work fine.

I painted mine using liquid acrylic paint meant for plastic models. I painted the interiors black, but that's for extra credit points.

What's the best orientation to print these?

They are oriented as they are meant to be printed.

HAHAHA one word HILARIUS hehehe

Yes. Both designs are CC-BY-NC-SA, so you'll need to release your design under the same license (SA - Share Alike), and marking your design as a remix of both will cover the BY (attribution) part. Have fun!

Damn what are they ........ they are ...... AWESOME!!!! real nice thx a lot i always wanted to make saftey goggles like this :-)

Done and Done. Thanks so much. Perfect for the office tomorrow morning.

I can't wait for tomorrow to hear everyone talking about these big eyeballs?

Congrats on the feature! These eyes are bonkers

Wow, yeah! Thanks! I just now visited Thingiverse for something unrelated, not going through the front page, and couldn't figure out why my dashboard button had an unusually high number. Your comment helped me figure it out.

Have a happy Halloween, everybody!

Came here to tell Eddie I killed his brother. Need to see these on a Judge Doom costume.

I had to google "Judge Doom" - I figured it was a character from Judge Dredd I didn't know about. Seeing the pictures of the character from "Roger Rabbit," I'm amazed I had forgotten about that. I'm glad I was college age when that movie came out. Judge Doom would've haunted my childhood nightmares.

As if the great Christopher Lloyd needed CGI to have crazy-scary cartoon eyes!

mad science much ed roth?

My 1970's childhood was full of Roth and Roth-like grotesqueries - models, bubble-gum cards, posters, etc.

Can't escape it if I wanted to. It's in my blood.

OMG this is so hilarious, great job and even better pictures!
