Hi there, this is my first post, and it's sort of an off the cuff question, but I do intend to post some of my work when I have some more to show (right now all of it's sort of at awkward WIP stages). My question, though, is if anyone has any ideas on where I could find, or how I could make, an appropriately sized pair of glasses for a Figuarts Gohan? I'd prefer to not have to sculpt it onto him, because I'd like it to be removable.
Pretty much any style of glasses will do, as long as they aren't sunglasses, since the style of frames they draw him with is never very consistent:

Thanks for the replies everybody! I ended up buying some of those 1/12 dollhouse glasses. They're the perfect size for the Gohan I'm working on. (WIP obviously. At this point he looks more like Jason Todd.)
Well that's odd. Is there any way for you to embed a tiny "rare earth magnet" behind the face plate, and glue some paperclip pieces onto the glasses? Rare earth magnets (like watch batteries) are insanely cheap on ebay from China, so I'd recommend that if you don't mind waiting 2 weeks to 2 months for them to arrive. If you don't have any thin paperclips that are magnetic, you could probably try seeing if you have an old earbud cord that happens to be magnetic and strip the wires out of that. I'm not sure if the wires in those are magnetic or not, but sometimes I just have free promo junk I keep just so I can butcher it and use it for something on a custom figure, so hopefully you do as well.
