Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the coolest of them all? Well, you of course.
Er, yikes... sorry about that one. But! This simple idea really will transform your - otherwise boring - full-length mirror into a legit accent piece, and it's super easy to pull off.
Le Miroir (The Mirror) is a short film by Antoine Tinguely and Laurent Fauchère (credited as Ramon and Pedro) that depicts the life story of a boy growing up into an old man. The unique part of this piece, however, is that the entire story unfolds as the man is standing in front of his bathroom mirror.
Brilliant! A handmade rearview mirror for bicycling. For whenever you need to see what's happening behind you, or just need a constant reminder of what brand of sunglasses you're wearing.
While Bikes and the City doesn't give complete step-by-step instructions, a quick look at the photos intimates the process:
EVERY year, in the fall, my elementary school held fundraisers; with promises of mountain bikes and Gameboys and squirtguns. My goals were always less lofty: a simple $100 could knab you a pair of rearview mirror spy glasses, allowing the wearer to secretly observe all the confidential, super secret espionage happening on the playground. I never quite made it to $100 worth of wrapping paper and crappy chocolate.
So, these DIY spy glasses have a special place in my heart, and I'm totally making some...like, tonight. " These are super quick and easy to make, you’ll need a glue gun and cut-able plastic mirror sheets which you can pick up at the craft store or on-line. The most important part of this project is finding the right glasses to modify. First, you want something hip and fun, no sense leaving the house looking like a meff. Look for glasses with lenses and frames which are as flat as possible."
