I'm planning on cosplaying Allelujah to Anime Boston in two weeks, but I'm running into some problems.

Firstly, the utter lack of prescription contacts that would make one of my eyes look gold. Does anyone know where I might be able to find them online? I've been searching but the only one or two I can find are non-prescription, and I can't see at all without that. My ultimate goal is to have my eyes look like his---one grey, one gold... Grey will be simple enough to get, but gold...

Secondly, I could use some advice on the colors of my outfit. I bought myself an underarmor shirt that's very similar to his (except I need to lop the sleeves down, since it's long sleeved), and a pair of pants that as well look similar to his (need to add belt buckles though). ...Unfortunately, after putting them on, I realized that the colors should be switched. The shirt is a few shades lighter than the pants, when it should be the other way around.

It's driving me nuts, but I don't know what to do. I can't dye the underarmor, and if I get pants in a lighter color, they'll be /too/ light. I'd get the underarmor in black, but it's...not black, it's dark navy. But, again, there's no in-between shade, so I'm not sure of what I should do. My hair as well is black, so I don't want it blending in with the shirt...

Then there's the boots, which I cannot find ANYWHERE (I did see a perfect pair, except they were $150, so uh no). But, that's more of a "need to keep searching like a madwoman" thing.

Any advice on those things, mostly the color problem, or on anything dealing with Alle cosplay in general?
