Print and Cut the Spectrespec Template

How-to Spectrespecs
Print and cut the template provided. Rain Blanken

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.

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

How-to Spectrespecs
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.

You 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

How-to Spectrespecs
Glue the lenses to the inside of the glasses. Rain Blanken

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

How-to Spectrespecs
Fold the end of the earpieces and glue. Rain Blanken

Fold the edge of the ear pieces 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.

What is Harry Potter without his glasses? Well, if Clark Kent is any indication, no one is going to recognize a non-bespectacled Harry. Luckily, you can print these glasses I created and have the right accessory even at the last minute!
