I love that picture too!
Ah.. point. But it would be very cool for a photoshoot nonetheless.
I haven't tried wearing contacts either.. mostly because I'm afraid I won't be able to care for them properly and also because I have a kind of bad memory from my childhood regarding eyedrops... hrrr. *shivers* But I don't really mind touching my eyes, so someday I must give it a go because there's a lot of red-eyed characters I want to cosplay.. including rasetsu. xD
