It's hot here and I am a [personal profile] firecat of Very Little Brain. Under the cut are some photos of me sporting various newly acquired eyewear. Pretend you're reading the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.

The Expensive Trifocals That Don't Work as Computer Glasses Because the Middle Distance Part Is Too Small. Also, The Tweety Bird Wearing Glasses Bandanna.


The Very Large Dorky Computer Glasses

Cute! and annoying about the trifocals.

The top picture is absolutely awesome - you look happy and amused, and the glasses suit you well. The middle picture is not such a good picture of you as a human because of the attack of MONITOR BRIGHTNESS that is making you look like a science fiction light-emitting glowy creature. Although maybe it would be a good picture if you wanted to be luminous.

I like the Even More Dorky Not Very Steampunk Goggles. What are they intended for? Swimming?

It wasn't the best lighting, so I went for glowy-creature.

I bought them on a whim intending them for steampunk. I would need to modify them somehow.

Love the steampunk goggles - where'd you get them?

Hey, I just bought Multifocal, Computer and Driving Glasses. Yes, THREE pairs of glasses for these aging eyes.
Because the Multifocal don't work for computers at all, same complaint as you, and they are only tolerable for driving. And since my old single focus lenses worked just fine for driving, I thought it would be better to have that again.
Those are some serious goggles. I just got glam Steampunk ones. Though I'm also thinking of getting a pair from the Foglios. They are fun, glam ones again though.

Yeah, I would really rather just wear one pair of glasses all the time but that doesn't seem to be working out for me.

I definitely need to do some glamming up of those goggles before I use them for steampunk costuming.

I love my multifocal toric contact lenses. I can see near, far, and in-between and NO GLASSES!

(I get confused with multiple pairs of glasses, and have been known to leave the house in my computer glasses.)

I love the way the trifocals look on you. The goggles are freaky, because you can't see your eyes and they're all glowy! :)

Thanks!

Do the goggles give me CAT EYES? :)

The Very Expensive Trifocals come with magnetic clip on shades.

I've seen my girlfriend's automatically darkening glasses and I know they wouldn't ever get dark enough for me. I wear fit-over sunglasses because they darken the view out the sides as well as the front. (They are enormous—more evidence of dorkiness.)

Thanks!

Awww! Funny how we collect all these little things we need to carry around with us like glasses and such. Must be prepared for steampunk at any time! :-)

Yes, the gangstas need to expand their sartorial options!
