Lady GaGa inspired ‘Video’ glasses! #ElectronicHalloween
9to5toys has compiled an incredible list of High-tech DIY halloween costume ideas. Heres one example they got from instructables user the_gella !
Not only are these glasses easy to make, they won’t break the bank, either! Find an old pair of sunglasses you don’t mind busting up, then gather up the standard crafting supplies—glue gun, pliers, and a little bit of paint (for touch ups). Next, you’ll need to pick up two digital photo frame key chains… Follow the DIY video and you’ll have a set of video glasses in no time. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to see through them, although it might be a sacrifice worth making for such a killer accessory.
