On a whim, and at the very last minute, I've decided to take my daughter to Phoenix Comicon.

Her immediate question to me was "Who are you going to go as?" I just couldn't resist: I'm going (as soon as I figure out how ... this is where you fine folk come in) as the Other Mother.

Here is the rub: How the heck can I do black button eyes and still see???

1. Make one of the four button holes big enough for each of your eyes to see through on each one.

2. Make a small horizontal slit between the spaces of the four holes, separating two of them when finished by the slit line.

3. Make a "fifth" button hole for your eyes in the center of the four button holes.

Hope either of these help or at least give you an idea.

I am the Nwo.

Thanks for the suggestions! I just couldn't get the buttons to stay on comfortably.

I ended up going as Mina Murray (Harker) from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (and, of course, "Dracula").

That's sad to hear - you could have easily just had clear thread on the sides (like making button glasses) and tied them to you. It would have been cool.....

You could've maybe gotten a cheap pair of plastic sunglasses, and cut the button shapes out of the lenses...
