Vincent Valentine Red Contacts
Hey everyone..

Well im making a Vincent costume and i wanted some help with the contacts...I cant decide on what type would look the best...

Ive come down to about 3 types




So your opinions and comments and any help would be excellent XD

Thanks everyone XD

I personally think the first ones. From what I've seen, solid red contacts tend to look a bit... off?

Taokaka; Blaz Blue
Jennyanydots (Gumbie Coat); Cats The Musical

Yes that was my thought exactly...I think the 1st ones have a bit more life to them...Plain ones i think can tend to look tacky and extremly fake...Altho red eyes are fake anyway haha but theres some reality and natural tones/shading..if that makes sence lol XD

I agree with the thing about making your eyes look more natural, but I bought some red contacts recently for a cosplay and they're fantastic! They're almost exactly like the ones in the 2nd link, so they 'are' a block red but with a black rim around the iris, and they do look fake of course because who has red eyes? But the colour change is amazing! I have quite dark eyes and these made my eyes a really bold, bright red. Very good contacts. So, I'd reccommend the 2nd ones (Especially for Vincent) but I understand using the 1st ones for a more natural look.

I think the second ones are best for Vincent, block red contacts are perfectly fine as long as they have a black rim to make them look more natural. Based on my experiences, contacts with extra shading (like in the first link) will dull the red somewhat.

I agree with the person above. My sister got contacts like the first ones but in purple, and because of the shading they look black. The second ones however, which I have, give an amazingly bold colour and don't look too un-natural.

What colour are your eyes? The first pair of lenses will just turn black/brown if you have dark coloured eyes.

I've worn 6 different kinds of red contact lenses and I prefer the block colours with the outer line so I'd personally go for the second pair.

I have a blueish/greenish/greyish colour lol but id say more blue and they are light. My eyes arnt very dark.

Im kind of stuck now lol...Alot of people are saying the red with a black rim lol.

Does anyone have a good one thats pretty cheap they can send the link of?? Ive been getting mine from www.bodyjewellery.com There not too expensive and theres a colour i need to get from there for another costume so i may as well buy all of them at once from the same place.

Thanks XD

Well, I got the red ones with the black rim very recently and they're perfect. Not too expensive either and arrived in two days because they're based in the UK. I got mine from Tokyo toys:
The link is to the contact lens section. I think mine were only about £16 or £17; but they had several different kinds of red. Hope this helps
