It seems every year we post a blog about the best Halloween costumes that include glasses, but every year we seem to find new ideas that we just have to share. This year is no different. We are a total fan of wearing your glasses with your costume, especially because Halloween contact lenses can do scary things to your eyes… see what we mean here. You can check out our old blog posts with mainly store bought costumes for more ideas, but this year we decided to go in a new direction – DIY!

Whether you’re in search of a costume for yourself, or the little one in your life, any of these costumes would be fun!
