Fake...glasses?

Hello there! ;_; I'm sorry if this question is stupid, but I'm a huge newbie to the cosplaying world and I'm not aware of quite a few things...

I'm attempting to put together my very first cosplay for AUSA '07. More specifically, I plan to go as Kyouya Ootori from Ouran High School Host Club! Er, I'm not sure how I'm going to, but I want to give it a shot anyway.

The problem is, I don't wear glasses. And, I will not dare to cosplay as this lovely boy without them!

Are there glasses used solely for appearance purposes? If so, where can I get them? :X

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it!

Not a stupid question at all this has been asked before. You can buy low level glasses that act as magnifiers they don’t need a prescription since they are so weak and you can buy them from a pharmacy or dollar store for really cheap. If you concerned about your eyes you can pop out the lenses easily (this is what I did for my Watari costume)

And the ones without the lenses are nice because you don't have to worry about flash glare in the lense

if the fact that the lenses aren't there bugs you, you can make nonprescription lenses with a hunk of plexiglass a couple mm thick. But most people won't care.
