Red contacts for light eyes?

I am cosplaying Hikaru Shidou ( http://static1.minitokyo.net/view/12/25/241262.jpg ) for Otakon in August, and I want to use red contacts (preferably circle lenses) since this is my first serious cosplay. I've done a bunch of research on colored contact lenses, and know all the basic precautions, so I don't really need anyone to help me with that. I do, however, need help finding red contacts for light eyes.
I have light blue/green eyes ( picture of me here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...4&l=2e10535922 ) and I find that a lot of circle lenses, or colored contacts in general have HUGE pupil holes, which would show my natural eye color, and look REALLY weird.
So, do you know any dark pink/red circle lenses, or just contacts that have a smaller pupil hole that are better for light eyes? Thanks in advance~
Upcoming cons!

See you there ♡

I know what you mean, I have light blue-gray-green eyes too and circle lenses with big pupil holes, what I've seen on photos.. just look really weird on people with light eyes. I haven't worn lenses yet personally but I've heard the Super Pinky Bright Red contacts have a bit smaller pupil hole than your usual circle lenses.

I have the Super Pinky Bright Red (actually used them for Hikaru myself, ironically). My eyes are hazel, so a lighter color. You can see how they look here:


I do really like them because I think they're pretty, but I will say the pupil hole isn't much smaller than any of the other circle lenses I have. That being said, I don't think it was overly noticeable.

Seconding everyone saying Super Pinky Bright Red. I bought them for a demon costume (my eyes are grey), and they're great. I don't know about the smaller pupil hole, but they still look great; I think in the end, it just makes your pupil look a little larger rather than seeing the awkward blue/green/grey showing through.

I also agree in Super Pinky lenses. I have a friend who bought them and they looked super great. :3
However, lenses with small pupil holes kinda limit your sight, so it may feel weird the first time.

B'yeah. Super Pinky is the best so far :]
