Where to buy 3D Glasses?

As the title says, I'm looking for red/green 3D glasses like these:

I found some of [rfdlink=63]ebay[/rfdlink] but shipping costs more than the glasses themselves so there's no point.
I was wondering if there are any local places in the GTA that sell 3d glasses like these? I needed about 4.

Apologies if I posted in the wrong section. I was debating between "computers & electronics" and "fashion & apparel"

go to a movie theatre and ask if they can hook you up with four 3d glasses?? I remember walmart used to have 3D glasses for the hannah montana thing.. but its all gone now.. You could try visiting a local crafts store and make your own.. DIY style..

I could easily get these but sadly, they don't work with regular TVs. And even if they do, they're not the red/green type I need :( I already asked a few friends that had some like that.

DJXP is right. I got that movie and it does indeed come with 4 red/green 3D glasses. I'd go to your local videostores and ask them if they have any left over from their copies. The movie just came out yesterday, so if you hurry, they might not have thrown them out yet.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for all your suggestions.
I think I'm going to try and find some overhead paper and try to make my own glasses based on that video. I wonder if I just taped coloured overhead paper on my glasses, if that would work.
I'm being extremely cheap I know...I can't help it, i'm a student.

If by 'overhead paper' you mean colored acetone sheets, yes, it will work. Just go to the university art store, they should have small acetone sheets in the right colours. Rest is just stiff paper.

Here's a link I found recently:

http://3dglassesdirect.com/


If more movies come out in 3d, I'll probably buy 2 plastic pairs for my wife and me... and a batch of fifty semi-disposable ones from them too (The smallest number you can get is 50 of those).
Yes I do have heatware. Look over here! Yes, here! Heatware: fitbrit

Too bad they use UPS. Shipping looks a little high and probably get hit with those brokerage fees.

Deal Extreme has them, as well as the modern ones used in cinemas ... can't remember what the tech name for it is ... polarized, I think.
