15 Halloween Costume Ideas For My Fellow Four-Eyed Friends

Finding Halloween with glasses is an unknown struggle. For our normal sighted pals, they don't have to worry about wearing a mask on Halloween or if they could make it through the night without making a fool of themselves because they aren't wearing their glasses. For those of us who don't have access to or can't wear contacts, we're often forced to wear our glasses without Halloween costumes. Which, if you're being something conventional, like a witch, a cat, a zombie, etc. isn't really a big deal. But, if you want to be a fictional character, real person, etc. your glasses can hinder the effect and the costume.

Sometimes it's easy to be creative or the costume allows itself to interpretation, a Disney princess/prince is easy to add glasses to and still be recognizable. However, anything that requires a mask or in which your glasses may make your costume unrecognizable, here's a few costume ideas that either need glasses or in which the glasses are easy to add in.

1. Harry Potter. 

Okay, I know this is the stereotypical one. But, it's cheap and easy. Just draw on a lightning scar and dress in something that looks vaguely like a school uniform and you're good to go!

2. The Tenth Doctor. 


While the Tenth Doctor didn't always wear glasses, he was known to sport them from time to time. So, your glasses certainly wouldn't be out of place. You could probably get away with the 11th Doctor as well.

3. Tina Belcher. 

Another costume that requires glasses, this one is probably the simplest on the list. Just get a blue T-shirt and black wig. You can certainly go all out with this one, but the simplicity of the costume makes it one where everyone will recognize you and you barely have to try.

4. Barb from "Stranger Things."

Barb from "Stranger Things" is everyone's favorite character and glasses are pretty much required. While this costume requires a little more work to achieve the iconic hair and retro style, for those of you Halloween die-hards, this might be a fun costume for you to source.

5. Taylor Swift.

Okay, this might sound odd. But, Taylor wears glasses in her "You Belong With Me" music video which is arguably her best music video to date. And, even if you don't agree, it is one of the videos where Taylor is the most recognizable. Just wear your favorite pair of pajama pants, a white T-shirt with some Sharpie, and pull your hair up. Easy!

6. Velma. 


Another classic, but it's a classic for a reason. Velma is an iconic member of the Scooby squad and the rest of the squad would probably be lost without her. Just get an orange turtleneck and a skirt and you're good to go. Again, you can go all out and get the wig, but most people will probably recognize you in just the glasses and iconic orange sweater.

7. Daria. 

Another fairly easy costume, the misanthropic '90s cartoon character is easily recognizable, even for those who aren't familiar with the show. Plus, you get to be one of the best cartoon characters ever.

8. Walter White. 


This could be an extremely easy or extremely complicated costume, but regardless of the route you go, Walter White is one of the most recent and recognizable characters with glasses.

9. Clark Kent. 


While this one may seem kind of obvious, it's a fun gender-neutral costume that is inexpensive and easy to wear. And, with the white button down and Superman T-shirt beneath, you'll never suffer a case of mistaken identity.

10. Alex from "Orange Is The New Black."

One of the most iconic characters from "Orange Is The New Black" and is a costume that may not be instantly recognizable, but any fan will immediately catch on.

11. Moaning Myrtle. 

If you want to go the "Harry Potter" route but don't actually want to dress as Harry Potter, Moaning Myrtle is a viable route. Plus, if you love to get into character, Moaning Myrtle is one that while you might annoy your friends. You'll certainly have a blast.

12. Sadness from "Inside Out."


Sadness requires a bit of planning and Halloween know how, but the character is recognizable and you don't have your glasses!

13. Where's Waldo?


Another costume that's easy to gender bend, Waldo is a fairly simple costume. While you might not be the original costume in the room, you'll at least be hard to find.

14. Diana Prince. 

Similar to the Clark Kent costume, Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, is less recognizable, but just as, if not more, badass. While the costume might take a bit more effort to pull off, it would certainly be worth it.

15. Napoleon Dynamite. 

You can't go wrong with a Vote For Pedro T-shirt. It's simple but iconic. You might not stick out from the crowd, but it's a classic costume and one that is cheap and easy to throw together.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
