It's time for all of us to step in and help on this one. A friend was recently diagnosed with an eye infection and has to wear her glasses for two weeks — starting today. That means she has to wear them on Halloween. She was originally going to be Frida Kahlo (brilliant), but is crushed and does not think it will work with her thick-rimmed specs. She does not have prescription sunglasses, so that's out.
Let's back up and peruse this compilation of cool chicks who wear glasses on a day-to-day. Fast forward, what brilliant costume ideas containing glasses can we think of? She's not really feeling Harry Potter, Ugly Betty, or a Revenge of the Nerd. I suggested a UFO (see picture), but that's me. Speak up, speak specs!
