I am looking for a latex symbol for glasses (eye glasses...)? I can find symbols as fanciful as Marge Simpson, but no glasses. Do you know of any?

    That is Unicode U+1F453 (👓) so with a suitable font and xelatex or lualatex it is easy to use that character. Commented Jun 16, 2015 at 9:00

You can build your own:


\fill (-2,0) circle [radius=1.5cm]; 
\fill[white] (-1.95,-0.1) circle [radius=1.2cm]; 
\fill (2,0) circle [radius=1.5cm]; 
\fill[white] (1.95,-0.1) circle [radius=1.2cm]; 
  (0,-4) --  
  (-1.9,-4) to[out=210,in=40]
  (-3,-6) -- 
  (3,-6) to[out=130,in=-30]
  (1.9,-4) --
  (0.55,0) arc (0:180:0.55cm and 10pt) --
  ++(0,-10pt) arc (180:0:0.55cm and 10pt) -- cycle;
\draw[line width=1pt,fill=Skin]
  (-0.55,-10pt) arc (180:0:0.55cm and 10pt)

  • @DavidCarlisle Just add it and include mine as well. I will delete then. Your comment was faster than me. Thanks for the vote, though.
