Reenactors


Recommended Posts

Yup, the soldier marching front left IS wearing oval frames. Our group all has ROUND frames! B)
Man, I hate being right all the time like that... :crying:

Few things bother me more. I've seen so many people spend gazillions on impressions, look decent in them (like the guy in the photo mentioned above) only to ruin it with modern specs. Hey, I'm as blind as a bat but either I show up with my original specs with my lenses dropped in them, I go without and hope I don't run into something, or I just don't go at all.

Kind of hard to tell, but in my signature line, those are original GI frames I'm wearing... Folks have no excuse to stop short on glasses, as you can easily find round metal rim frames at antique places and shows. And places like Wal Mart optical aren't that expensive is putting lenses that will work for you into them...
