Halloween Fashion Emergency!

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!

Oh yeah Velma is a good one. I've done that one too and with my friends created the whole cast. Good times.

Velma from Scooby Doo. That's what I thought too! I like the Liz Lemon idea too - but it's not too costumy.

I was Daria once, and was surprised how few people actually had watched the show :? I thought it was a classic! :confused: Daria is a good option, or she could be Karl Lagerfeld.

Tina Fey, or Tina Fey being Sarah Palin. I'll add another vote for the zombie librarian.

I think Frida could still work... there are so many interpretations of her already. A witch could wear glasses. She could be a librarian. A Zombie Librarian.

ooooh daria is good! this is really cheesy, but a few years ago one of my friends who needed a last minute costume was "smarty pants" she put some tape on her glasses and taped smarties to her pants. it was so her, so it worked.
