I love Lady Gaga, as you may already know. She is so fantastic to listen to and look at. (I just ended that sentence in a preposition; deal with it.) I LOVE HER. Sometimes I slink around my apartment pretending I’m her coming out of the water in the beginning of Pokerface. Did I just say that out loud?
Anyway. I coveted the glasses that she wore on the cover of The Fame, and I decided that I wanted them. Note 1: I wear glasses so I can’t really wear sunglasses. Note 2: You can’t see out of these glasses anyway so it doesn’t really matter.
I started out with a really scratched up pair of safety glasses that I had and painted the inside with black paint.
For the jewel part of it, I used these sequins (which, interestingly enough, used for my Lady GaBra).
I cut them up into quarters.
I then baked them for approximately 1 minute at 350F in my toaster oven.
I sanded down the safety glasses (not so safe now, are you!) at the part where I would place the tacky glue.
And smeared a thick layer of tacky glue on the glasses.
I placed the baked sequins on the glasses. So awesome.
Fame fame baby the fame fame.
I spent entirely far too much time doing that.
And lucky YOU! I’m going to give these away! If you want them, leave a comment on this post by Thursday, April 14. I'll post the winner on April 15. If I don’t know how to contact you, leave some sort of contact info in your comment. These glasses are pathetically useless. Can’t see out of them! But they are a good blindfold ;)
