I donâ€™t how many of you are watching the latest season of Heroes on TV at the moment, but I am an avid fan. A couple of others here at GD are also addicted to it and after a discussion one lunchtime about our favourite Heroes characters and their glasses, I thought Iâ€™d take a closer look at some of the heroes spec-tacular style.
My hero no 1: Hiro Nakamura
Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated Masi Oka stars as Hiro Nakamura, a Japanese nonconformist computer/anime geek. Hiro’s ability to pierce the space-time continuum and manipulate time has empowered him with foresight into a dangerous future — and what he must do to change it. I love Hiroâ€™s simple glasses, perfectly understated for a man with such extraordinary abilities. I think our Lisbon frames are pretty similar.
The evil Sylar
Zachary Quinto stars as Sylar, a manipulative serial killer dedicated to violently collecting the extraordinary talents of special people. This retro-style of specs on Sylar almost makes him look like a nice guy, if you are watching Heroes, youâ€™ll know otherwise!
Jack Coleman stars as the mysterious H.R.G. – so named after his “Horned Rimmed Glasses.” Just what I love the most, a man so connected to his glasses heâ€™s named after them!
Sexy Hayden Panettiere stars as Claire Bennet, an indestructible high school cheerleader, who must veil her abilities from her peers as well as keep other secrets from her mysterious father “H.R.G.” Haydenâ€™s character Claire doesnâ€™t actually wear glasses in the series, but I thought sheâ€™d look great if she did. I used our Virtual Mirror to see how sheâ€™d scrub up in a pair of Charmers. What do you think?
