party favor/catalyst: random pairs of glasses

We found this compelling image on one of Tara Mann’s blogs, and followed it to photographer Jeanie Choi’s Tumblr. Don’t know what the story is but IMAGINED what a funny thing it would be to have a party and offer guests their choice of glasses (sans lenses, perhaps) as an instant change of identity plus conversation starter. (With lenses, they’d give guests a change of view.) You can find cheap vintage glasses at flea markets and thrift stores.

    Love this! Hats would be equally fun.

    When we put on glasses, we see the world with new eyes… Even glasses with no lenses would morph the perspective in psychological ways. What a fun way to get a party started. Glasses are great props too…

    Glasses? Brilliant! I went to a party where they gave out scarves for people to wave in the air while they danced or adorn in different ways…so fun!
