I need heavy black-framed glasses. The type the military issues and the kind that cut the number of foreign born births by our optically challenged troops down by half at least in all the theaters America operated.

As a bonus, if there are some that have a little piece of tape in the middle, that is just gravy.

Wow…“birth control glasses”? Could that be any more offensive?

I would look for glasses that have the shape you want, then just color them black using the Diffuse color. The tape you could probably add using a Photoshop brush on the texture/template.

The problem is they are a particular shape. Let me see if I can find some pics.

Hope this gives you a better idea what i am talking about. If you do a search on Buddy Holly or Elvis Costello, you may find more examples.

I believe it is a military term sort of. Dated a guy in the national guard once who called his military issue glasses that.

If you wear glasses, you get issued BCGs at boot camp. You weren’t allowed to wear your own pair until you graduate. It was an ugly piece of plastic that all of a sudden became fashionable. Kind of like bell bottoms, it just never goes away.

BTW, I’ve been looking for a pair for the longest time, the only set that comes close is ironman13’s set, it even comes with braces, I certainly hope she remakes it for genesis.

Doesn’t make it any less offensive, but thanks for explaining the origin. Hope you’re able to find what you’re looking for.

You might try these: Nerd Glasses (comes with tape) or Hipster Glasses (no tape.)

I expect it’s a slang term for those ugly glasses, and not any official terminology or policy.

As a geek, I swear to you that I have NEVER worn tape on my glasses, and always have gone with wire frame, not plastic. Of course, I’ve never been in the military. hehe

That’s actually the milder of the two terms I’ve heard used for military issue eyewear. They’re also commonly referred to as RPGs - “Rape Prevention Glasses”.

I’m sorry, you probably didn’t need to know that.  oh oh

I usually call them grandmother glasses because my grandmother had thick-framed glasses like that (only not black) and I always remember her a bit when I see something similar.

Ironman’s glasses are nearly as opaque as mine! (My real glasses, that is.)

He’s probably talking about Fortune 410s (that is the frame name).  And yes, that is what we called them - the Army gave me 2 pairs, to ensure that I stayed single.  We also called them FRGs - Female Repulsion Glasses.

I wouldn’t mind a set for my Poser people myself.

For a wide variety of glasses you might also check out Spex (http://www.daz3d.com/spex-for-genesis). I’m pretty sure there are a set of plastic frames in there - meant to be more like Ray Bans I think but change the color of the lens and you should be fine.

We called them birth control glasses in the Navy, as well.  SPEX base glasses are this sort of style, but I also include a preset called “Marvin” which is the typical “nerd” glasses, complete with tape on the bridge.
