Best Halloween Costumes to Wear with Glasses
by Optoplus / October 2021
Whether planned months in advance or 20 minutes before the festivities begin, finding the perfect Halloween costume can be daunting and made even tougher if you wear glasses! Coloured contacts can be practical when wearing a mask or elaborate makeup, but with a bit of imagination, your glasses could take center stage!
Lacking inspiration? Here are a few foolproof and inexpensive ideas for the young and young at heart to pair with current frames or vintage ones found at a thrift shop.
A Ghost (and its spectacles)
Even ghosts need eye exams! Add a little edge to the traditional last-minute white sheet by adding sunglasses.
How could anyone forget the legendary frames of the most famous wizard? Whether you go for the total school uniform or for a more casual look, two main items are essential to any good Harry Potter costume: round glasses and of course, a magic wand!
Edna Mode from The Incredibles
Bold black round frames are essential to recreating this audacious fashion designer’s look from Pixar’s The Incredibles.
To create the perfect 70s-inspired hippy, pair some psychedelic pieces with vintage-inspired metal frames or go all out with some colour tinted sunglasses!
From the hugely popular series The Office we find the perfect inspiration for our next costume idea. To get the look, pair a jacket and tie in any of the 50 shades of brown with silver aviator-style frames.
Vote for Pedro! With the right frames, you too could be as irresistible as Napoleon Dynamite. Fans of the 2004 comedy will rejoice, but even non-fans will recognize the look of the pop culture favourite.
An orange turtleneck, terracotta skirt and black frames should do the trick! All that’s missing is a large dog to take the costume to the next level.
Before Superman, there was Clark Kent. This DC Comics superhero is used to hiding amongst ordinary folk in his classic suit and frames. It’s up to you to surprise onlookers by revealing the “S” logo under your dress shirt!
Borrow the flamboyant style of the most recognizable Rocketman for an evening! Sure, no one owns the glorious British pianist’s endless optical collection, but your most extravagantly coloourful sunglasses will do just fine.
