Hello all. It's down to the wire for figuring out a Halloween costume, but I'm ahead of my usual schedule. Anyway, I keep running up against a problem: Every idea I come up with seems like a good idea until I remember that I wear glasses, which just makes so many costumes (especially those involving fictional or historical characters) seem less than applicable. In the past I've just sucked it up and worn whatever, with glasses in place. But this year, I want something that incorporates my glasses into the costume.
So I'm looking for as many ideas as possible that have a character that is supposed to have glasses. A few specs (heh): I'm a female in her mid-twenties, with dark medium length hair, a ton of freckles, and red-framed glasses. I'm not opposed to donning a wig if need be, and I don't have contacts.
Last requirement: CHEAP. I'm in grad school and have zero cash, so the cheaper the better.
Also I kind of hate those costumes-in-a-bag from the big mall Halloween store, just because they look like cheap pieces of polyester shit (which they usually are). And speaking of big mall Halloween stores, I would prefer to not look like a slut, but I will consider it if it is a good idea.
Thanks for the help!
