I did the same for The Asylum a few year ago, I wore a blackout in one eye and then my monogoggle over the top, so when people asked about the eye, I showed them and it looked like I had suffered an injury. My eye REALLY hurt but I stupidly kept the contact in for hours. Give your eye a break after about 4 hours, for at least half an hour. Wash the lens, and your eye and give it a rest, then try again.

When you say blackout contacts, do you mean scleral contact lenses that cover the white of the eye as well? Or just regular cosmetic contact lenses that are black as opposed to another colour?

If it's the second one, I bought some from TokyoToys, and wore them for the best part of a day. They're no worse than any other cosmetic contacts, your eyes may get a bit tired by the end of the day as they're getting less oxygen than usual, and might be a bit sore.

Scleral lenses on the other hand, I wouldn't touch with a barge pole. I have a horrible phobia of eyes and touching them though (getting cosmetic contacts in at all was a lifetime achievement for me) so scleral lenses look like the devil. But from what I've read, they can be dangerous to wear. I'm obviously not the best person to listen to on this subject, but I'd seriously speak to someone who is before getting scleral lenses. (Although as far as I'm aware they cost a small fortune anyway.)

If you're talking about scleral lenses, J-Po, just make sure to give yourself a break from them every now and then by taking the out for 30ish mins and lubricating your eyes thoroughly with eye drops.

Don't be scared of them!! Just don't wear them excessively - your eyes will dry quicker in them, tis all.

Not sure if circle lenses are allowed here but can anyone recommend me some good blue ones? I have dark eyes and I was originally going to buy some Geo Angel but from the pictures I've seen, they appear really dark on brown eyes. I'm hoping to get something more... blue? Maximum diameter I can go is probably 14.2mm (may consider 14.5mm).

Solid colours should be fine. My eyes are emerald green and yellow and I wore solid red ones for my Sebastian cosplay, which looked awesome. Avoid the "natural" ones that just colour blend, they will make your eyes go black, lol!

Thought I might as well ask before buying. What solution do you guys use? I currently have a pair of circle lenses and obviously going out to buy a bottle before wearing it. Is it not advisable to buy shop brand ones?

Now i've never tried full eye contact lenses before, so i can't comment on how comfortable or easy to wear they'd be... but damn they look awesome lol

I would love to wear these sorts of contacts, but they scare me to also. You have the feeling of something covering your eyes, but it doesn't hurt at all. Were they uncomfortable the first time u put them in? I’m getting them in a week and I was wondering if it’s really hard to get them in and out?

Helloo, just a good site i came across that sell a huge amount of lenses for decent prices.

http://www.eyecandys.com/

Also, a tip for contact lenses, i usually to stick to big brand names like Acuvue, Freshlook and GEO just because i know that they are most comfortable, so just to let you know. I'm not a super contact lens expert or anything.

Contact lenses are always going to be a problem for me. I mean, some cosplayers are really snooty at other people if they don't have the contact lenses for a certain character.
I mean, I was ok cosplaying Stocking because she has greenish teal eyes and so do I.
I have terrible vision without my glasses or prescription contacts (like, I'd probably walk into the road without knowing theres a car coming) so wearing contacts you can buy from fancy dress stores are out of the question.
I also have astigmatism so the contacts I buy already are more expensive than normal ones.

I know you can buy cosplay contacts to your prescription, but to get the ones for astigmatism too, its kinda pricey. You can always kind of create the illusion of having that character's eye colour with eye shadow i guess.

Anyone else have this problem??

I have astigmatism (I can't remember how strong) and I bought Vassen Bambi Queen circle lenses and haven't had any problems so far and I've been using them for almost every cosplay for a year. They have a lot of prescriptions and several different colours, they might work?

Once the decision within the position so that you can cosplay, perform some research as to the exactly you are looking for along with exactly where is it possible to believe that it is

Actually I do have a question...

Does anyone know anywhere online that sells coloured PRESCRIPTION contact lenses?

I've had a bit of a hunt but it hasn't gone well. >< Obviously i'd like somewhere reliable.

Also natural colours are no good, I need kind of a deep orangey colour...

If anyone knows anywhere that'll be amazing! ^_^


Pinkyparadise.com has some that you can get prescription at reasonable prices c: They're a good price and a really good quality. They're very popular in Asian countries where circle lenses are very popular They don't have orange but they do have red ones that are close to orange. Depending on your eye color they could look more orangey than red when put on as well

So I just found this site lenson.co.uk and they have quite good range of coloured prescription contacts for a reasonable price, I was looking at these Eye Love Crazy lenses (the rest of the colours/brands available can be found here) and I was just wondering if anybody else had come across this site or brand before, and knew if they were any good?

EDIT: I take it back, there was the option to change the prescription but when I actually looked that brand is only available in 0
-.- I have managed to track down some brightly coloured prescription lenses, but I can't find any anywhere for less than fourty quid.

To anyone who can/is willing to travel to Godalming (Southwest England, just after Guildford) there's a costume shop here that sells contact lenses for around 10£.
