Unpopular Opinion: Halloween is the worst for glasses wearers. Hear me out.

I have worn glasses since the second grade and I love my glasses. I think they’re a huge asset to my style, my face, my confidence, and obviously, my sight. Some fellow four-eyes prefer contacts, but I absolutely do not. I love my glasses, and nothing you say will make me get rid of them. When Halloween rolls around though, I want to just go right ahead and buy some new eyes.

A majority of the best Halloween costumes do not need glasses. One I always wanted to be, Frida Khalo. No glasses. One year I was a gypsy/mystic thing. It was a terrible costume, but my very dark, very thin mid-2000’s frames certainly didn’t help the look. This year I wanted to be Mia from Pulp Fiction. Nope, no glasses. The #1 costume people recommended to me in college? Sexy Librarian. Seriously. Can’t. Won’t. I refuse.

In a strangely timed morning mini-rage, I’m here to inform all of my fellow four-eyed ladies of some amazing Halloween costumes for you. Recommendations for outfit, hair, and where to find the glasses!
