How to Make your own Hipster Glasses

Nerd-chic has been hitting the streets of the Bay Area en masse and big, round, nerd-looking glasses are at the epicenter of this new style. Some call it hipster, you can call it geeky, but at the end of the day the look is all nerd. Well, berd sans the tape to keep those specs from falling off your nose. Compelled to adopt this new nerd-style, I decided to go out and grab a pair of my own, but to my dismay the nerd-glasses style hit maintstream and I soon learned that you’d be hard-pressed to find a pair of nerd-goggles for less than $20. So what did I do? Improvise! With a little nerd ingenue, I was able to score my own pair of nerd-glasses for the mere cost of a (3D) movie. This is how I did it:

STEP 1: Go to your favorite theater and catch a 3D movie.

You know where I’m going with this, right? If you’ve ever wanted to catch that movie in 3D, now is the chance to go. Not only will you be entertained, you’ll also be able to take home* a free pair of 3D glasses.

Wait are you telling me you can’t take them home? Blasphemy!

STEP 2: Get rid of those ridiculous 3D lenses

Now any normal person can put on those 3D glasses in public and rock ‘em like that, but why would you? You’d look silly! To transform these 3D specs into nerd-stylish glasses, the solution is simple. Are you ready for this? Here we go: just *pop* out the lenses!


How simple was that? Once you’ve completed these STEPS, you should now have a pair of nerd/hipster glasses. You are now ready to rock out with your pock(-et protector) out! EnJoi!

***Now, I don’t condone stealing nor do I recommend you ask your girlfriend to take home a pair as well, but this is vital in Making Your Own Hipster Glasses. Please proceed with caution. If all else fails, just go to your favorite hipster store and grab a pair of your own! And for the record, I totally dig my new specs!
