In need of blindfold advice

Unread postby Bound_and_Determined » Fri Apr 20, 2018 1:31 am

Has anyone anywhere developed a blindfold that works for people with a very long nose, not including an expensive hood? I’ve tried several but the only ones that really work so far cover the whole face. Any advice?

Thinking along the lines of a "regular" blindfold, covers the eyes only, why does the length of your nose matter?

It's the bridge area design/fitment that seems to matter most, imo, for effectively blocking out all light.

I don't have any good suggestions sorry. I've only had a few cheap ones, latex and other materials, nothing to brag
home about. Also made a few myself(latex), not that hard.

+1. Also did this to a pair of cheap motorcycle glasses.

Great suggestion.

Have tried several types of blindfolds. Even making some of my own modifications to what I have purchased to be more secure and to completely block out all light. I have never been happy with the results until I took your suggestion and purchased a $10.00 pair of US Divers Swim Goggles at Walmart. It took several coats of black paint but I have finally achieved total darkness and with the way they fit I cannot shake them off or even rub them off (if that was an option available to me).

They are also very comfortable to wear for long term and their is nothing pressing on my eyelids.

Who knew. Thanks again for your post.

Yeah, I've been on the search for the "perfect" blindfold for a while. I too have a fairly prominent proboscis, and seeing down past my nose and/or having the blindfold slide up my forehead are perennial problem.

I'm yet to find a commercial one that solves this.

Home-brews that do work include:
  • A leather head-harness blindfold. This has straps overhead, around the head above the ears, and down, crossing under the chin, all coming together in a rather complex five-way locking buckle. The eye cover is thick leather, padded around it, with extra padding around the sides of the nose. The buckle is a bit awkward (made from wire and PCL).
  • A similar harness to the above, but using elastic straps rather than buckled leather. Same basic concept - strap the thing to the whole head so it doesn't move around too much, and accommodates facial movements.
  • a pair of wrap-around mirror sunglasses, blacked out with black duct tape (the mirror finish means you cant see this from outside). Soft black packing foam is glued on the inside and carved to fill the space between the sunglasses and the eye socket, in such a way that it's not immediately visible (the sunglasses are fairly close-fitting). The foam is hollowed out over the eyeball, so you can open your eyes comfortably. The foam isn't completely opaque, but it prevents useful sight. An elastic band over the ends of the arms of the glasses keeps it in place. Puts a bit of pressure around the eye socket, but since it sits in the eye socket and not over the cheeks and forehead, it stays put. This is essentially the same approach as using blacked-out swim goggles.
Thing's I've tried that didn't really work:
  • taking regular sleep masks or blindfolds and reinforcing the nose area to block light from there;
  • using a larger blindfold to cover more of the upper face, tend to ride up.
  • Blindfold that cover down to the lower lip (with a nose hole) - not bad but not perfect; as it tries to ride up it tends to irritate the nose, and light still leaks in.
  • smaller blindfolds to fit close into the eye sockets relying on the bridge of the nose to keep them from riding up - if they're tight enough to stay in place, they pressure the eyeball.
