If, like me, you are a full-time glasses-wearer, you’ll have noticed how under-represented we are in mainstream movies. Thankfully, the costumiers of X-Men: Days of Future Past are redressing the balance, in spectacular style. Ahaha! Haha! Sigh.
Contains spoilers for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Go and see it!
The Classic Nerd
I am friendly, approachable, and enjoy developing shady experimental ‘serums’ that may or may not turn you into a blue quadrupedal rage-monster. Call me!
The Skeevy Landlord
Sorry love, I’m afraid I can’t return your deposit. Boyfriend live round here, does he? Work in the day, does he? Like peanut butter, do you? On rice cakes? What? Yeah, I’m just intuitive, darlin’.
The Don Draper
It’s important to make an effort when you’re plotting an assassination and mutant uprising, you know? Invest in classic pieces and you’ll always look sharp. See this sweater? That’s some serious GQ shit, son. Now get me an espresso – I’ve already ground the beans WITH MY MIND.
Bolivar Trask. No really, that’s his name.
Yep, I am definitely wearing spectacles. I’m wearing the hell outta these bad boys.
Toad, blotchy long-tongued mutant who isn’t Willem Dafoe, apparently. Confusing.
Pal, I’ve somehow adhered my glasses straight onto my freaking face. I’ll mess you up in ways you can’t imagine. Shut up, no I wasn’t in Finding Nemo.
I’m not sure if we should count Quicksilver’s goggles as glasses. They’re less of a fashion statement and more of a way to make sure his eyeballs don’t fall out of his skull when he takes corners.
