Twas the night before Christmas, when all the through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
Even though the stockings were hung and the children asleep,
St. Nicholas was out getting hammered on drinks that were cheap.
It was a day filled with tattoos, beers, and the awesome people behind the cameras: Kanga Marketing and Ashlee Rose. Check out some behind the scenes moments below and, as always, follow us on snapchat @Fuse_Lenses for more from every shoot!
The Fuse Crew is finally back on land and back in our home-state after attending EAA’s Airventure Oshkosh 2016 this past weekend. Fuse came to support two of the newest additions to the #FuseAthlete team roster: The Paradigm and Aeroshell Aerobatic teams.
The Paradigm Aerobatic Team, the Oshkosh newbie, was definitely one of the highlights of the show! The team flew in the top pilots from across the globe to debut as the first ever Aerobatic Powered Paragliding team at Oshkosh! In fact, it was the first time ever that any crowd in the States has seen an aerobatic performance by PPG riders – and they pulled off their show without a hitch. The grace shown by the pilots made it look easy (it isn’t). But, if you happened to miss it, don’t worry – not only do these guys have a full documentary coming out on them, but their dynamic performance sealed their place in the show for years to come!
The Aeroshell Aerobatic Team is a world famous formation flying team, and an Oshkosh regular. The classic power of the American made Texas T6 aircrafts was a sight to see. Plus, Aeroshell definitely helped the Fuse Crew end the weekend on the right note – a ride-along in the famous crafts. Our fearless owner, Brandon, even took over the controls for a bit. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience (but hopefully one we can re-live again next year!)
Fuse makes some of the coolest lens options around for your sunglasses. But, most people don’t know that you can change the lenses out at will. You may assume that the lenses are glued in the frame or fastened in a way that a professional would have to change them out. Even the manufacturers of most frames would say that the lenses are not interchangeable.
Well, I’m here to show you that it is WAY easier than you think. In fact, changing the filter in your Brita container or putting air in your cars tire might, arguably, be tougher to accomplish.
This video illustrates how to change the lenses in a Ray-Ban RB3025 Large Aviator frame. The principles of changing the lenses in this frame are virtually the same for any metal sunglass frame that we make lenses for. Use this as a guide to changing your lenses and you’ll be comfortable with it on your first go.
These 1980’s Retro Smiths had a brown tinted lens. The owner was wanting a fresh look, so we put our polarized “Glacier” lenses.
We have tons of lens options available for a wide variety of sunglasses. But, we don’t have them all. If you notice that lenses for your frame model are not on our site, we can still help! We can email you a prepaid shipping label for your frame and custom cut some lenses to fit. If the shape is common and sought after, we will store it in our database for future purchases. This is a sneak peak of what goes on behind the scenes to re-create your favorite shades….
We are so proud to call Hunter Sims a Fuse Athlete. This young man delivers his good deeds on a daily basis and is an inspiration to us all at Fuse Lenses. Check out his recent video for a charity event that he is putting together himself!
