How to Use Glasses to Your Advantage This Halloween

With Halloween fast approaching, do you know what your costume will be? If you have glasses and are not a contacts person, you need the flexibility to be something or someone that allows your specs to blend right in. Thankfully, there are a ton of glasses-friendly costumes to choose from this year. Some of them are so enticing that you might even want to consider ordering some custom frames just for the occasion.

If you’re more interested in dressing up with some of Grandma’s old hand-me-downs, Mrs. Doubtfire might be the Halloween character for you. Throw on a wig, find some women’s glasses, and add a little baby powder for just the right effect. Bonus points if you can do the voice.

Black plastic frames and a blue turtleneck will transform you into 1/3 of these titular characters. Though it might work best in a group, you can also go solo with this one. Be prepared to do impressions all night and maybe even draw on a few freckles for effect. You’ll be the life of the party anywhere you go.
