Question Recommend me circle lenses??

Ok, so I getting together a little mermaid cosplay if ariel in her pink ball gown/dress. I'm having some problems with choosing some lenses. I figured this was the best place to ask. If anyone could recommend some natural (meaning that don't make me look like a creepy robot) bright blue circle lenses. I was thinking about getting them from pinkyparadise but if anyone has any better suggestions then feel free to recommend
Thanks (^.^)

Do you need corrective power? A lot of blue lenses (especially from GEO. WHY GEO?!) don't have a corrective power option. Also, what's your natural eye color? That can affect the lens color. The EOS Dolly Eye blues are freakishly blue but might or might not be, well, freakishly blue on your eyes. I do recommend Vassen Dolly Plus series for comfort, looking natural (as natural as red can be, heehee), and they aren't freakish whatsoever. I have my eye on the Vassen Sweet Eye for my Stocking Anarchy cosplay.

As spookehdoom mentioned, eye colour is something to take into account, because they look TOTALLY different on light eyes than they do on dark eyes. (This is coming from a girl who has to deal with brown-eyed models and getting something that doesn't even look the same on grey eyes >.>)

I only own one pair of blue lenses, but they're actually relatively natural (sans the big black ring), but they're these --> https://www.pinkyparadise.com/EOS-Ca...11-g208-bl.htm

Also, one recommendation for Pinky Paradise here. It's where I get mine, and I've never been disappointed before!

Oh yes, I forgot about that: PinkyParadise is good. I've bought 5 pairs from them at various times, no problems with them. Shipping takes about a week and a half for me, but it can differ on where you live.

And Khorrupt, you have to commend PP on putting up a light-eyed model and having a section for lighter eyes too!

Thank you both for responding! ^_^

Even though I wear glasses, I never get prescription lenses and this has always worked for me because at our technological age, my prescription doesn't come in lenses yet. However I don't seem to have a problem with circles lenses and wear my glasses over them (if need be, as they're not full time glasses).
In short prescription is not a problem for me. My eyes are light blue (but I want bright blue for Ariel) and I'm happy with the colour pay-offs with my brown and black lenses.
I think I'll defiantly get them from pinkyparadise since everyone recommends them. I'm really liking the look of EOS ones atm.
