Can anyone recommend a contact lens color that is similar to that of Twilight Princess Link?
Reference Photo: Here

I thought about getting the colormax blue lenses, but would they be a bit too bright for Link's eye color?

ColorMax Blue lenses are more intense with flash photography, like any other lens. That said, they are not quite as obnoxious when you are just wearing them. They would do fine though they would not be my first choice. Pic related: http://fav.me/d2txmz0

For Link, the main idea would probably to get color but without such a large diameter lens.

Other possibilities:
Sweet Eye Blue
Dolly Eye Blue
Geo SF18
EOS Fairy/Fay Blue
Vassen Cloud 9
Venus Eye Blue

T&B Kotetsu cosplay lenses

So I've been looking around the interwebs and I haven't really found a color similar to Kotetsu's one hundred power colored eyes. If anyone has any recommendations that would be great. Cause ALA (and the holidays) are coming up, so I dont want to wait until the last minute ^^

My eyes are a really dark brown, borderline black. (keep this in mind) so I'd like something pretty vibrant so it could show up against my eyes. Both in lighting and photoshoots.

Here's a reference pic of Kotetsu

Thank you guys in advance, I really appreciate the help! OH! Side note. My friend is cosplaying as Bunny. So if you could find the same colored pair with a power of -10.00+ let me know!

My sister is going to be cosplaying as Ciel. Any ideas for the contacts? She's not going to get the contract, so probably a purple.
For Sebastian, maybe http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Super_P...pinky-wine.htm ?

Those are pretty close, although the colour is a bit flat. The perk, being that they would cover up your dark eyes.

Thanks for responding so quickly! I will definitely keep these in mind. I'm actually surprised I haven't seen them before, haha.

No problem! Only thing is, I'm fairly sure that they don't come in prescription (there, at least!) But, they probably have them at Coastal

I'm really shooting for trying to get the same type for both me and my friend so we can match. These would work for both of us, if only they came in prescription xD that's probably why I'm struggling trying to find lenses. I really hope I can find some ^^;; Let the search continue!

Hey guys! I've been searching a few different sites for orange prescription contacts that look realistic, but I'm having a hard time.
And I've been thinking of possibly going with a light orange or dark yellow, but I don't know how my natural eye color will affect this...I have greenish hazel eyes...
Help?

Your natural eye color will not affect the look if you are getting opaque color lenses. I presume by "realistic" you mean something more detailed than a plain orange lens? If that is the case, you might consider the following:

ColorMax Amber is bright orange and comes in prescription.
Golden Twilight lenses have a slightly different pattern from ColorMax but are still bold.
Incubus lenses are pretty amazing looking but a bit pricier.
Vampire Gold sort of occupies the middle-ground between orange and yellow.

I need to replace my green contacts for several of my cosplays. I'm looking for something really vibrant but not a creepy 'flat' sort of unnatural, I'd like a 'blended' color. My eyes are naturally dark brown. (I'd mostly use them for the reapers from Kuroshitsuji, so a two-color ring would be awesome.)

I was looking at the Vassen Lollipop Green from pinkyparadise but they don't have any other photos than the generic stock picture. Does anyone else have these contacts that they could show a picture of?

I had actually wanted the Vassen Bambi Queen Green, but pinkyparadise doesn't carry my prescription (-3.17,-2.25) Is there anywhere else to purchase those specific contacts that has a greater prescription range available?

Hey everyone, planning on doing the human version of Teddie for Katsucon '13 and am attempting to look for the proper contacts for him. Basically my first cosplay that I've done where the eyes don't match my natural color (brown), so trying to nail this one properly. Any and all help is much appreciated.

I just want to thank everyone on this thread! I sat here for a few hours looking at reviews and links that yall have shared and I just bought my lenses for my Duo Maxwell and Edward Elric cosplays. I can't wait to get them in and once I do, I'll most definitely post a review of them. =)
