Self-described “child of the 80’s living the geek lifestyle,” member of Ghostbusters ATX and obvious super fan of Ghostbusters, Eugene Stephens, has made a pair of working Polaroid Ecto Googles as briefly seen in the German version of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie trailer.

DIY Functional Polaroid Ecto Googles

You see why Eugene is a super fan? Because it takes a super fan to scrutinize every frame of the 8 seconds in which the ecto goggles was seen and make a copy of it in real life. That’s dedication which only super fan is capable.

Stephens’ Ecto Goggles is 3D printed and it is, like in the trailer, designed to incorporate an instant camera which, in this case, is a Polaroid Snap Camera. And yeah, it is totally functional.

The good news is, you can make one for yourself too. Stephens is selling the 3D print files of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife Polaroid Ecto Goggles for anyone who wish to do the same. You can find it on Etsy, selling for 20 bucks.

The camera is, of course, not included. If you are so inclined, you can pick up the Polaroid Snap Camera on Amazon for $89.
