Also, is Pinky Paradise a good website for color contacts? I have really bad eyesight as is so I don't want to impair it >.< (Btw, I'm just going to wear my glasses with my cosplay then take it off whenever I need to so I don't need prescription)
Thanks in advance
To be honest, hard lenses are not prescribed on a whim. In fact, nowadays they are prescribed for exceptional cases while most people can wear soft lenses. You are wearing them for a reason. If your eyes are shaped in a certain way naturally, your eye doctor may be using the lenses to try and "reshape" the corneas. While Pinky is a safe place to buy lenses, definitely ask your eye doctor if you could safely wear soft color contacts. Given your situation, he or she will be the only one who can answer that.

I'm after the original sharingan contacts. I've found some websites that have them, although I'm not familiar with buying contacts online, so I just wanna know which of the following websites would recommend/not recommend.
Websites are:
http://www.fashion-contactlenses.com/
http://www.honeycolor.com/
http://www.pinkyparadise.com/
http://www.eyesbright.com/
http://color-my-eyes.com/


Or are there any other websites that sell these contacts for a reasonable price that I haven't listed?
Please and thank-you.(:

Thanks. The cat eye lenses appear to be the same ones I found uncomfortable/limiting, so plain orange ones might be the way to go.

I don't suppose anyone knows of some orange circle lens (I found cat's eye patterned ones, but I can't seem to find orange ones with slit or normal pupils)?

Has anyone used grey lenses? I have medium brown eyes and was looking into the Color Max ones (both grey and aqua because I've seen some of the pictures of the aqua ones and they look AMAZING). Yay or nay? I'd love to hear some reviews, other than the ones I've already read.

I need bright blue contacts for a Catherine cosplay. ref.

I found these and thought they were perfect. Saw lenses from youknowit.
But I usually only order circle lenses from sites like kiwiberry and pinky paradise.

Pinky Paradise kinda screwed me over with my dolly eye blue lenses that I first ordered, so now I'm just going to get a refund and look for other ones. But I'm so indecisive. D:

How reliable is youknowit? Is it legit? And what about the Blue Mansion lenses on there? They are also on HoneyColor here.

I want circle lenses that make my eyes look bigger, but the Saw and Mansion lenses look pretty spot on. Do they also enlarge? I can't seem to find reviews on the Saw ones with the size or anything.

I also found these circle lenses that I thought looked nice. Super pinky blue

Basically I need big, bright blue lenses that show up on light eyes!
hAlp. ;-;

Is there such thing as cat eye contacts that do not spin for under $200?

Unfortunetly, as far as I know there is no such thing. However, It doesn't take much to readjust the lens. Then again, I were contacts instead of glasses so I have much more courage regarding the touching of my eyes... If you're worried about them spinning, bring a mirror with you so you can check. Blinking can put them back in the right place just as easily as it spins them.

I've seen cat eyed circle lenses (they went for about 10-20, going from memory, which is about $30) before. I don't know if they'd be more resistant to spinning though.

I'm curious if anyone here has bought prescription contacts from ExtremeSFX.com? Generally I go with Vision Direct because I know they're a trustworthy site, but they have a limited color range with their prescription options, and ExtremeSFX was the only other site I came across that offered colored prescription contacts at a similarly reasonable price.

I have pretty terrible eyesight, so not getting prescription isn't an option. I just want to make sure the ones I do buy are going to work. ><

I'm wondering what anyone has used Techno Medical Co. Ltd.'s "Fairy Queen" line of coloured contacts. The same maker also has "Fairy Princess" and "Fairy Natural" lines.

Sora: http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Geo_Bel.../a19-bs202.htm

Cloud: ^ Same perhaps? Sora's eyes are sort of like a cartoony Cloud.

Tifa: http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Geo_Pri...a14-wmm304.htm

As far as the power thing goes, I have astigmatism in both eyes and just wear regular lenses. I think that you'll be okay with regular if the power isn't high.

I'm planning on making a green tunic link costume some time soon and I already have a zora armor costume built. I've been wondering what contacts would be the best match to Link's eye color. My natural eye color is brown. Anyone have any recommendations?
