25 Blood Curdling Bat Shades For Halloween

This year we decided to do countdown of Spook-tac-ular Shades for Halloween or Day of The Dead. The challenge is on to Seek New Scary Shades for one of the biggest holidays in the world.

Today we are starting out with Bats. Bats are notorious spooky creatures that surround caves, witches and warlocks.

1.) From Maarten Weidema of  Procchiali Studio who visited Pierre Eyewear at Silmo and discovered a unique Bat Shades look.


2.) One of ways to customize your Bat Shades is making a look from rimless eyewear. We love the Bogeyman Bat Shades. This look  can be carried out through out the years as well.
