    After looking around to create my own personalized blindfold I discovered it's not an easy thing to find.
    I had to search for "sleeping mask" instead.
    So, I discovered that artscow.com can create them.
    I made a 1200x600 px image (jpg or png) of my avatar (should have transparent background):

    and uploaded it to the site.
    Since I only used one color (I guess), I paid $3.50 and in around 2 weeks I got it.
    You can see its quality in the following video:
    I was surprised by the great quality of the product and thought it would be something relevant enough that was worth sharing with you guys.

    I have a Napoleon Dynamite blindfold that my mother found and got for me, which is just like this but with Napoleon's eyes. People at competitions always get a good laugh out of it, at the last comp my brother said that a bunch of people took pictures when I first put it on. One time, I heard a woman yell from the back "He can still see it!"

    Just make sure the image is big enough to have higher quality and be less pixelized

    Received mine today. Unfortunately I should've considered how far apart the eyes would need to be, but can't complain about the quality of the blindfold at all! Would definitely recommend, and will definitely wear this at comp for giggles

    I'm sure that will open a few eyes and raise some eyebrows in a competition O.O

    That scared me a bit, and it's awesome.

    I really want a custom blindfold, just have to decide what kind of image to have on it.

    It's at a funny angle there! But if you don it just right it aligns up almost perfectly with my eyes underneath :) Something Piano/Cube related?

    Your eyes looks kind of derped from that angle :p

    Idk, maybe cube, maybe piano/music, maybe Mario, maybe Minecraft, maybe some kind of eyes.
    I'm in no hurry though.

    Yup, the pics definitely needs some careful editing to keep them in location. I tried putting some meme eyes but it doesn't really work, you've got to crop out each eye and paste them properly. How are the bands anyway?
