These are really cool-looking, and I love seeing a new glasses mesh that works (and looks good on) kids. Thanks!

It looks good. It tastes like nothing on earth.

Wonderful! They look great and the color choices are fantastic...I love em! All of my eyeglass wearing sims are getting a makeover, pronto! Thank you.

Edit: I have since tried them out in my game and they look awesome...very realistic. I predict alot more of my sims are going to have the "wears glasses" turn on.

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

Thanks so much! These are beautiful, and for both genders! I love these. I always need more glasses for my sims.
Not actually evil.

Do these glasses have a unique GUID so they won't override any existing glasses?
Do they have both "lens" and "frame" groups in the mesh so they won't flash blue?

They look very nice! Can't wait to put them on my librarians and rockabilly sims.

These are so cool. Thick rimmed glasses are soo cute! Someone should make Hot Topic colors for these, with checkers and stuff ^-^

Finally my sims get to wear something other than the three decent Maxis glasses! Thank you!
I really dig the black sunglasses. They're nice and understated. Kinda ZZTop awesome.
