I am an early 80s child and I don’t remember Halloween being a big day in the UK. I mean it was huge in America but not so much in the UK. It’s weird to think about it knowing that Halloween originated as a Celtic festival in Ireland.
However, things have changed over the past couple of years and Brits are getting the hang of this spooky festival. Remember the time when Adele turned into The Mask for 2016 Halloween and sent the message to her 20 million followers?
Dressing up for Halloween is a task on its own. You have to pick a theme first and then a costume. But, the struggle is real when picking out a Halloween costume for glasses wearers. Sometimes the prescription glasses clash with the costume and sometimes, they just don’t fit over a mask. I mean why in the world will spiderman ever wear glasses.
But if you wear glasses, your chances of pulling off an iconic Halloween costume are not slim. Dress up as these famous TV characters or real-life personalities and complete the look with a pair of glasses.
