Kuroshitsuji : Grell's Glasses

So, searching around has proven a bit of a failure for me, unless I want to go back to my optometrist and shovel out around $135 for a pair.. Anyone have any websites online that sell glasses resembling his? Especially one's that sell with either a lack-of-lens or non-prescription.. I'll even take one's that look like his in shape (colour can always be customized).

Second question: Do we have a good scan with the beads he has attached to the glasses? :/ All I have are really low-quality and it's kinda frustrating trying to craft the skulls and find the beads with scans like that...

Thanks for the help, guys!

EBay is your best friend
I've since found a pair so I deleted the links, but I found at least 3 very close matches in reading glasses (and the lenses in plastic-framed reading glasses are notoriously easy to pop out).

I ended up going with this FABULOUS pair of candy apple red glitter frames, but the other ones were very close (and under $15 shipped)

A world so hollow it's breaking my heart

I got a pair of reading glasses at dollar tree and had my dad pop the lenses out (he had to drill through them so the frame wouldn't get damaged), along with a chain and plastic skull rings, which are easy to find around Halloween. I colored the skulls with a silver sharpie and cut off the ring part then hot glued them to the chain. It only cost $3. ;D

I have glasses similar to his, so I just paint mine with nail polish. but while out shopping, I've seen some like his at Claire's in 2 different malls. they're all nonperscription. if you have a Claire's where you live, I'd check there.

I just got a pair of reading glasses from Walmart. They worked perfectly.
The chain I made myself.

If anyone reading this is like me, reading glasses or those cheap ones from Claire's won't work because you have such poor vision you need a prescription pair of lenses to not fall down stairs.

I get all of my glasses from: http://www.zennioptical.com
My whole family gets glasses from the $8-$10 sections. They are quality glasses and it's only $7 shipping no matter how much you buy!
There are hundreds of frames and a lot of them come in some crazy colors like Grell's cherry red.

You can also buy them NON-PRESCRIPTION by leaving all the fields blank when you order.

I bought my chain from http://www.etsy.com/listing/19753980...ain-a-la-grell. She shipped it out pretty quickly, I got it within a week I think. It looks so good, too!!! I was very pleased with it :3

I just took an old pair of sunglasses I don't use, bent them into a reading-glasses shape, painted them red, and put a clear-coat of nail polish on them

I found great pair of red reading glasses and the chain for $2, both at the dollar store. The glasses were VERY close to that of Grell's. As was the chain. Maybe it's a good idea to check your local dollar store (I found mine at Dollar Tree) and see if you have any luck.! Good Luck.!
