I also wear mundane glasses at events, but I have met a man who refuses
to wear his glasses at events, although he is extremely nearsighted without
them, on the grounds that his persona would not have glasses.  As an extra
bonus, he's never seen anyone smoking at an event.  On the other hand,
he doesn't mind pretending that everyone in the medieval world spoke one
language -- we all pick our own areas to be authentic in.
