Drawing of the Week: Going to meet the InLaws

While watching Haven I liked the episode with the Deep One folk going into the water. I thought this would be a great drawing of family of deep ones going out to meet the InLaws

From Wikipedia:

Pince-nez ( /ˈpænsneɪ/ or /ˈpɪnsneɪ/;[1] French pronunciation: [pɛ̃sˈne]) are a style of spectacles, popular in the 19th century, which are supported without earpieces, by pinching the bridge of the nose. The name comes from French pincer, to pinch, and nez, nose.

Although pince-nez were used in Europe in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries, modern ones appeared in the 1840s and reached their peak popularity around 1880 to 1900. By the late 1930s, they were popular mostly with the elderly.

I bought a pair at a great price a number of days ago and I realized that the magnification power is close to what I am using for reading. I have taken to wearing them for short reading. Oddly enough I now notice the bows of regular glasses when I wear those.

I believe they look cool. In a Laurence Fishburne/Morpheus kind of cool.
