Ever since I was born, I have never needed glasses because of my good eyesight.
These days, however, men with glasses seem to be popular among Japanese women. So I tried V-O-O-V, a photo app to try on glasses virtually. I'm going to attract all the girls with this app!
First of all, it is necessary to prepare a photo of your face. You can use ones already in your photo gallery, but considering the following processes, it is better to take a new one. According to the guiding frame, take a photo of yourself from slightly above.
Next, tweak the angle and size of your eyes with two of your fingers. This function works pretty smoothly. If your eyes don't fit to the virtual glasses in the next step, you can come back to this process and adjust your eyes again.
Then choose a pair of glasses from 212 designs by VANQUISH EYEWEAR, a Japanese eyeglass brand.
At this point, it automatically applies the "handsome guy effect" to your picture. What a smart app!
But that's not all. In the next step, you are asked to choose a background, but..., it's not so much a background as a cosplay! What on earth is going on?
In the "CHARACTERS" category, you can choose costumes of anime characters, while in the "ROYAL SERVANT" category, you will find chamberlains' costumes. These kinds of cosplay-backgrounds are plentifully available.
I wonder if I should be glad about it..., because it doesn't seem to retain the original picture, which I put my effort into keeping an unaccustomed serious expression!
Anyway, I enjoy this function. In these days, who is the most popular anime character with glasses? It's Barnaby Brooks Jr. in Tiger & Bunny. With his costume, I will attract a lot of girls!
Oh, no... I'm sorry, my face ruined his coolness.
You can save the pictures, including non-cosplay ones, as part of the "collection."
The app is really well-made for a free app. It not only helps you check which glasses look good on you, but letting you enjoy virtual cosplay. Highly recommended!
