Code Geass: Lelouch Contacts

Done a few forum searchs, google searches and looked at a number of contact lense websites and I cannot for the life of me locate anywhere which sells contacts with the bird sigil for Lelouch's geass.

Anyone a) have any ideas on where sells them or b) could give me a crash course on doing the contact lenses myself?

Thanks in advance

No idea....And painting your own contact lenses woul probably be pretty bad if you're only using the internet to help you and not a class. I wouldn't trust just internet directions. And I think no site sells the Geass contact yet. ^^; What you could do is wear one purple contact and one red/pink contact instead.

if you get a pair of glass contacts they are fairly easy to paint but not you won't be able to see, as well you could probly find a site that custom makes them but that would be pretty pricey

If all else fails, I suggest just CG the geass sign in the photos~

Best of luck in your search!

One contact I saw was made by these guy.
http://www.9mmsfx.com/ they do special orders since every one they make is custom fit.

I would highly recommend getting it from them than painting a glass one. Glass ones are hard to wear as is.

phew, that's expensive, but it looks really good! ^^ I would love to do that too, but that's pricey. I'm going to just cg the geass into my eyes and wear purple contacts.

150...dollars? I'm going to assume from your profile. Still, fairly pricey for me at the moment for just a pair of contacts. I'll settle for some purples until I have the disposable income to manage that. Thanks for the advice and information though everyone

Actually, it's $150 for each lens. XD That's about the going rate for customs that need to be prism balanced (stay vertical and not spin) from 9mmsfx, but they are nice, the ones in my avatar were made by them.

No, when I'm talking about custom contact, its always price for single piece.
115? I could have it maxed up with the rental magica one I'm getting.

My advice is, unless you really have spare the money, plan on whorring out the character alot, or is that anal enough about your accuracy, don't get it. Worst comes to worst you can still sell the costume, but not the contact.

I just accidentally stumbled across this one.
They aren't EPIC, or anything, but they're cheaper than $100 (and they are Geass =])

I got mine from ebay. But I do know where they originated from. And though I got mine without having to pay S&H, these are still a very good price. Only $39.99 for a pair.

They url gets banned for some reason. That's the only way I can really get it to you... It's a .com site. All one word. It bans it when it's not spaced...
They're soft lenses, with a stamped print rather than hand painted. They're not balanced, so you need to adjust them every hour or so if you want the sigil to stay facing the right way.
But they're really good. You can wear them for 8 hours a day. 90 days if you wear them every day. But from my experience they can last around a year or more if you only wear them when you need and keep them in solution when you don't. ^_^

I'm considering cosplaying Zero sometime in the not-so-distant future, so I've come across this issue as well.

http://www.amazon.com/Geass-Purple-C...5 2676&sr=8-1

It looks like it comes with two contacts... always a major plus! And $40 dollars is much more reasonable.

However... I haven't bought from them myself and I don't really know what the quality of the contacts are. The feedback on their Amazon page seemed pretty good, but I still don't know much about it.
