Here’s another entry in my quest to find and share funny and/or stupid videos with you, my loyal readers (and I’d have to say that this particular video falls into the second category)! The video demonstrates how to make those TV screen sunglasses that Lady Gaga wears. Man, some people simply have too much time on their hands!
If you are interested in this, I’d suggest you watch the 6 minute video below. If you don’t want to watch it, here’s a quick summary. To do this you will need two 1.5 inch digital key chains (check eBay), some glittery foam paper, scissors, a glue gun, and of course a cheap pair of sunglasses (definitely NOT Matrix sunglasses though…I’d hate to see them doctored in this fashion!). You should be able to get everything you need for $10-$15.
The first step is to remove the lenses from the sunglasses. Then glue the digital key chains to the frame, where the lenses used to be. Make sure that the power button on each digital key chain is toward the outside of the shades. Next, cut the glittery foam paper into a rectangle, approximately half an inch larger than the perimeter of the frame. The rectangle will have square holes where the lenses are, and you’ll also need to cut a nose groove in the center (check the video for the exact cut…it might be better to first cut a template in regular paper so you don’t waste the glittery paper if you mess up). Then simply glue the glittery cutout onto the frame.
The next step is to create the sides along the arms that rest on your ears. Cut the glittery paper into an L shape, and glue it to fit on one side, making sure that the paper does not extend to where your ear will be. Then repeat this process for the other side. The final step is to add your pictures to the digital key chains. Read the instructions that come with the digital key chains to learn how to do this. Upload whatever pictures you want for a highly customized look.
So that’s all there is to it! The next time you have to dress up in a costume of some sort, this might be just what the doctor ordered. You only need about $15 and 30 minutes of time, and you’re done. Enjoy!
