Know where to buy non-prescription glasses?
Post By carnione. 22/02/10, 01:48 pm

[For my friend's Grelle cosplay]

Does anyone know where in Palmerston North (haha... sorry but I don't think that'd really count for much, if not Palmy then on le interwebs) I can buy non prescription glasses? Preferrably one's with the fake glass lenses?

My Dad always buys heaps of glasses from The Warehouse, theyre only like $3 each? You can easily pop out the lenses with those ones, and just wear the frames. That's what i do xD

I think I remember seeing them at JayJays? Althought they were really big ones, not like Grelle's
Or you go a $2 store, or cheap $1-8 type store and buy normal glasses there, then just pop out the lenses - it's hardly noticable that there's not glass in them. (When you pop out the glass make sure to lay down newspaper to catch it and wear some kind of glasses/safety goggles to protect your eyes. You need to hit the glass with something like a hammer)

Pharmacists will usually have some as well, but usually more expensive than the Warehouse. But if none of the warehouse ones are the right shape, then it's another place to look.

But if you get a really weak prescription, it should ok to wear them for a day or two. Possibly headache inducing, but you can sit them right down your nose where you don't have to look through them.

Kmart has perfect red glasses for Grelle~ They're $10. I got some late last year... they should still have them now though?
