Sword Art Online II's Sinon's Glasses Recreated

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

Shino Asada, the player behind expert sniper Sinon, sports some stylish eye-wear when she's not beating the competition in Gun Gale Online. Her half-rim glasses are being recreated by Cospa, not only as a cosplay prop, but also as practical prescription glasses.

The glasses cost 10,000 yen (US$83) and customers can bring them to participating Coolens stores to add prescription lenses for 2,500 yen (US$21) plus tax.

The item is expected to ship in January.

Anime series regularly inspire tie-in eye-wear. Sportswear and sporting equipment company Mizuno recreated Miyuki Kazuya's sports glasses from Ace of Diamond. They promptly sold out in 15 minutes. Other anime like Kan Colle, Porco Rosso, Hunter x Hunter, Kill la Kill, Evangelion, and Attack on Titan have all inspired replica eyeglasses.
