Talking Homura Akemi Glasses

I'm having trouble finding glasses for my Homura Akemi cosplay. I'm cosplaying her first timeline outfit, so I need a pair of red glasses.. The problem is, I can't find any that are accurate enough.

Cospa actually came out with a replica that is perfect- but it's also over 90 dollars in most places I've found online. I need something cheaper, but accurate. I can't be paying 160 dollars for cosplay glasses.

Can someone help me out? ;o;

You're probably not going to get as accurate as the replica glasses but you can find something close.

My friends who have cosplayed Homura just went to their local eye glass store and asked for red frame reading glasses. It's not going to be super accurate but it's going to be the closest you can get for under $90.

i would think your by far easiest option would be to buy not-red glasses such as ones linked to below and paint them, especially if you're not opposed to removing the lenses. if you prime them first, do enough coats, and seal the paint, they should look perfectly fine even if they were originally black or another colour.

possible choices:

Thanks guys ^^ I'm still looking around, but I'll probably end up painting a pair of glasses to look like Homura's.
