Looking Forward to Halloween: 9 Costume Ideas with Glasses

  • Post category:Holidays

Sweets, spider webs, and specters—oh my! Halloween is quickly approaching, which means you need to get your costume in order. Instead of wearing the same old ghost sheets, vampire fangs, or witch’s hat, shake up your Halloween routine by donning some spectacles and role-playing as your favorite glasses-wearing ghoul or goblin. Here are some great costume ideas with glasses!

Waldo from “Where’s Waldo?”

Kicking off our list of costume ideas with glasses is the most elusive boy to live in a book. Counter to Waldo, you’ll definitely stand out from the crowd with this costume. Put on a pair of owl-rimmed glasses, don a red-and-white striped beanie and matching sweater, and you’ll be ready to role-play this beloved puzzle book phenomenon.

Velma from “Scooby Doo”

“Jinkies! Where are my glasses?” Hopefully when you dress up as this famous “Scooby Doo” character her classic catchphrase will not become your reality. Pick out your pumpkin-colored turtleneck, rock those stockings, and get your jinkies on as Velma Dinkley!

Steve Urkel from “Family Matters”

If you find yourself saying “Did I do that?” far too often, then this iconic “Family Matters” klutz could be this Halloween’s costume of choice. Bespectacled and full of boyhood charm, you will sure to be the life of the party. Oh, the suspenders is just killing!

Clark Kent

Feeling more stud than dud? Roleplay as everyone’s favorite caped crusader—or, at the very least, his alter ego. Hey, you can’t fight crime all the time!

Harry Potter

A favorite for costume ideas with glasses, Harry Potter blends your passion for bifocals with fantastic beasts and where to find them. Wield your wand and feel the magic this Halloween. Hopefully you won’t be expelliarmus-ed from the party!

Doctor Who

The 11th doctor on this well-known British TV series was known to wear specs from time to time—and when dressing up as him this Halloween—you can too!

Austin Powers

Speaking of time lords, playing the timeless eyeglass-sporting Austin Powers may just put a little pep in your step this Halloween. Plus, you’ll get to annoy your friends with ‘70s sayings and catchphrases the entire night. Oh behave!

Napoleon Dynamite

This Halloween, look dynamite as Napoleon. Bespectacled and a little brash, this famous character is sure to bring in some laughs. Though, if tots are involved, your friends might not be as welcoming at first. But you can win them over by showing off your amazing nun chuck skills!

Walter White from “Breaking Bad”

Break the mold of your Halloween routine by being a little bad. This iconic “Breaking Bad” character will be a boon to your bad boy persona —and your stylish spectacles will be sure to give you extra street cred.
