Quick question: Since Goggles Do Nothing applies to any kind of accessory that seems to have no function, shouldn't Goggles Do Something Unusual apply as well?

To justify my reasoning, I'm thinking specifically of Supernormal Step. The author, Michael Lee Lunsford, has something of a Fingerless Gloves fetish - almost everyone in Supernormal wears them. Typically, fingerless gloves are a perfect example of Goggles Do Nothing. The gloves are almost always worn for simple Rule of Cool. However, Lunsford chose to justify everyone wearing fingerless gloves by giving them a function which was explicitly stated in the comic. As such, this seems to be a great example of Goggles Do Something Unusual, but the trope description states that it only applies to eyewear.
