Cheap Alternative to Sollux glasses
If you live near any dollar trees, check out the reading glasses racks for a pair of glasses with round lenses. They almost always have a pair! Then just color them in with sharpies. WARNING These are a PROP. As in don’t use these as actual glasses!!! They’re still reading glasses!
Here are what mine look like (the lighting is rather bad making it harder to see the blue lens but you get the point)

A lot of suggestions I saw for Sollux’s glasses seemed rather complicated compared to what I did for them. I didn’t see this suggestion in the list of things for them so I hope I didn’t miss it, but I bought non-prescription glasses (or they can be ordered with prescription for an additional fee) from Firmoo for about ten dollars and once I got them I simply colored them in with sharpie. They turned out like this, using these glasses. The site is also very reliable for other types of glasses as well in case anyone wants some more professional looking Eridan glasses. Glasses are sent with tools for adjusting, extra pins, a glasses case, and a lens cloth.
I am going to buy these glasses for my Sollux cosplay, then use glass paint on the lenses. Thus far, this is the only pair of glasses I’ve found anywhere that looks remotely similar to his. A bonus is that they are incredibly cheap, and can be ordered with or without a prescription.
A warning, though, the frame is made of “memory metal” - which, I am fairly certain I am safe in assuming, is very similar to a more popular brand of glasses called “Flexon”. The metal conforms to whichever shape you bend it into, which generally ends in the glasses becoming bent and lopsided. I had a pair of Flexons in fourth grade as my first pair of glasses, and I foolishly did not treat them very well, and in the end they became incredibly bent-up looking. So, basically, what I am trying to say — if one wishes to buy these glasses for a Sollux cosplay, be sure to be very gentle with the frames, and do not bend them.
Anywho, now that I am done with that little rant, I hope someone can find these glasses as useful as I have. c:

Some good Homestuck glasses, maybe?
(Hi! Sorry I’m anon, I’m a bit shy…)
But I was poking around Amazon and I found three pairs of glasses that might be good for cosplays!
I know that most people draw/wear frameless glasses for Sollux, but these glasses still could work if you had a different interpretation of his frames.
After paging through the 3D glasses for a bit, I found these. If someone wanted to design a trickster-mode Sol, but keep the 3D glasses, these could be a good accessory!
Another pair of glasses I found while browsing. These could be a good way to make your Dave stand out from the crowd, or perhaps be used for a trickster Dave, or even Davesprite?
Thanks for reading! Hope someone, somewhere found this helpful!

Horn Headbands and Sollux Glasses
For those of you cheap of money and in need of sturdy headbands, Stop&Shop has bunny ear headbands with attached wires holding up the ears. They’d do well for any large set of horns, also possibly Sollux horns.
In addition, Dollar Trees in the SE New England area now carries good 3d glasses that would do well for Sollux Cosplayers. I already picked up a pair, just in case!

Prescription 3D glasses for Sollux
If you don’t mind doing some work, I find that this tutorial for Terezi glasses works for Sollux, too, with some modification. I was fortunate enough to find some giant heart-shaped glasses with blue lenses around Valentine’s Day, but the website for the chili pepper glasses also has other glasses with blue lenses you could buy. Just substitute one blue lens for a red.
Here’s what mine look like, if you’re curious. I haven’t added the arms yet but the lenses are the important part. (If you’re wondering, my webcam flipped the photo so the lenses appear on the wrong side) c:
Hope I could help!

I was at the Dollar Tree today and found this almost perfect pair of 3-D glasses for Sollux! They’re fairly easy to see through as well and for a buck, its a steal!

Buy 2 pair and shave the bottom of the second pair for the smaller inner horns, then paint!
Thanks to prisonerofcreativity for the tip!
