Print and Cut the Spectrespec Template

I've put together a Spectrespec template that looks almost like the real thing. You have the option of printing the high-res version or the low res version. The high-resolution photo is a large download, but it will look much better when printed.​

  • Print the 300 DPI high-resolution template
  • Print the 72 DPI low-resolution template

If you're going for total authenticity, try printing this template on a piece of silver paper from the office store. Otherwise, regular printer paper or card stock will work just great.

After you've cut out the pieces, we can cut the lenses.

Cut Out the Lenses

Cut two circles from the plastic wrap. Rain Blanken

Cut two 2 1/2" circles from the plastic wrap, one in blue and the other in purple or pink.

Your circles don't need to be perfect because the edges will be hidden by the glasses frame.

Now, we'll glue the lenses in place.

Glue the Lenses in Place

Make a thin ring of rubber cement or white glue around the lenses, then carefully press your plastic wrap circles in place.

Next, we will attach the earpieces.

Attach the Earpieces

Fold the end of the earpieces and glue. Rain Blanken

Fold the edge of the earpieces and glue to the edge of the glasses. I suggest weighing down the glasses with a book while the earpieces set.

Now you've got a pair of Spectrespecs to complete your Luna Lovegood costume! You can also make Harry Potter glasses.
