    Hello! Does anyone have the red eye glasses needed for Trap that you're looking to part with? Or know where I can get some?

    Thank you!

    Hello!

    I purchased a bunch of pairs of cheap frames or readers, I can't remember.  I bought them in bulk from Direct Supply.  It took like 8 weeks for them to arrive, so I caution you on that particular supplier.  Anywho, then I bought red finger lights from Oriental Trading and slid them onto the arms of the glasses.  In the blackout, the kids put the glasses on, then turned on the lights - and they came on iwith momentarily different timing, which actually ended up being fantastic!  Good luck!

    Much like Amber's response, we bought cheap sunglasses from the Dollar Tree and then slipped clip on mini reading lights on each arm (purchased from Amazon):

    Red fingernail polish transformed them into parasite eyes. It worked and created a nice effect in the darkness.

    Break a leg. Fun show.

    We used plastic clear goggles and red fairy lights that the students could put on and turn on during the dark - it was cool!
    My old school may still have them (Twinsburg), but it really wasn't that expense to create.
