I need contacts that are FOREST GREEN for this character. D:
I have like.. REALLY DARK BROWN EYES, almost to the point of it being BLACK.

I need them to show up easy with or without the aid of a flash camera.
So if you're looking at me.. you can easily tell without having to STARE and wonder if my eyes are different colors.

^Colormax greens are the general recommendation, but they are very expensive.

You'd probably do best with circle lenses as opposed to domestic "color contacts". Circle lenses are designed to cover up dark Asian eyes.

You might like:
Geo Nudy lenses
Green Burn lenses from EOS
Geo Angel lenses

Those will all give dark brown eyes that evergreen color. If you want brighter colors than those, ColorMax lenses are a good choice.

Okay folks, here's an example of my contacts that I recently bought.
Colornova Green
Calaview Jade Green

Colornova
Comfort: 3/5 -- Were really scratchy at first, eventually couldn't feel them but I seem to develop a headache after wearing them for 3+ hours.
Color: 3/5 Not too bad. I wouldn't recommend these for cosplay if you want them to POP out at your viewers. The gold ring inside sort of helps with grabbing attention, but good lighting is probably needed.
Price: Around 30bucks for both lenses isn't bad, I got mine from color-my-eyes.com.

Calaview Jade Green:
Comfort 4.5/5 -- Could definitely feel them, but they were very quick to fade and I can't tell they are in after about 2 minutes.
Color: 2/5 Very dark, especially considering my eyes are brown/black. I don't recommend if you have really really dark eyes. They're still able to be seen, but not quite well enough.
Price: 30 bucks, again. Not too bad.

Bottom line: Not for cosplay. Better off with something else.

Picture examples. Apologies for such a big file!

Oh! Speaking of Geo lenses, Geo Twin Greens are also very good but only available in plano. I wanted them for a while until I realised they only came in plano

I got my EOS max pure greens in the mail yesterday from Pinkyparadise (since I needed them in prescription)! I did the $15 shipping method (3-7 business days), ordered on Sunday night; they notified me that they shipped my order on Tuesday, and it was super quick! Love it.

Some pictures taken indoors (no flash):

From further away (webcam).

Overall, I like it! The lenses are quite comfortable to wear and very enlarging. They give me a halo effect in some lighting. They do not look as bright in person as they do in Michelle Phan's Avatar inspired tutorial, though.

Would any dark-eyed people happen to have pics of them wearing white/greyish lenses? I was considering getting contacts for Dante (DMC4), but I'm afraid my brown eyes would make greyish-white contacts look weird... :/

If you search the thread for "gray" or "grey" you'll find a bunch of posts. =)

So I went ahead and tried the "Clearly Colors" collection from www.clearlycontacts.ca

https:///contact-lenses/clearly-colors/prod96101.html
Color: Aqua-tic Allure

Pros:
- 4/5 for comfort ; it's a gel edge soft contact that doesn't shift nearly as much as my other FX blue lenses.
- Has a dramatic yet somewhat natural look.
- comes in my Rx so I won't walk into walls!

Cons:
-Some of your natural colour will show towards the middle of the lens. It's only really noticeable in close-ups with flash.

Overall I'm really pleased! Fast shipping too.

* With flash


* Without Flash with some natural light

hello I'm form Mexico and I get a pair of CARNIVAL LENSES in blue, I don't know if you can get a pair on Internet, because I get them in a optical.

pros:

They are very confortable, and cheap $25, the color is very intense and is visible whitout flash.

Cons:
They are bigger than my iris and the lens almost cover the sclera (I think I look strange, XDXD what do you think?)
Some times when the lens moves I can see them.


---- my natural eyes

--- blue, I used it for my Rin kagamine's cosplay


BLUE TOPAZ SOFLENS STAR COLOR FROM BAUSCH AND LOMB

Pros
4/5 confortable, cheap $15 dls aprox, the lens are the size of my iris, and do not cover the sclera as above. and look more natural.

Cons: the color is good but in my opinion is a bit dark in the shade but in sunlight is very bright

My next con is outdoors, so I'm going to use them.

Hej, as promised [on another thread], here are some pics of the Super Nudy Pink lenses.
I've never tried any lenses from the Nudy series before, but I have a feeling that as a whole,
they probably are not incredibly vibrant on very dark eyes.

Anyway, here are the pics and my review as well.

Contacts: Neo Toric Dali Violet

They are nice for day to day life because they arent very bold, but I definitely would not reccomend them for cosplay. They gave my eye a two color effect ((I got them in november, just never reviewed them here)) because the violet was more like a ring on the outside leaving brown on the inside... I liked that look for everyday life, but like i said not for cosplay. I wore them in public and people rarely noticed anything odd.

Natural eye color:

With contacts in, with a light on my face (they arent as visible without light on my eyes):
