You are a neglected Cosplayer when you look for photos of yourself forever after a con and you cannot find more than three. If you are, join the club, and begin your post with something related to neglected cosplayers!

I used Freshlook colorblends.

The top one is with GRAY, the bottom is my natural eye color. No flash.


My eyes are very dark, and the gray is actually a big difference. It stands out, but still seems like a natural eye color.

I really like Freshlook - very comfortable (I've worn them for very long periods of time)

I tried green once before, but it was still too dark. I am going to try amethyst soon!

I'm wondering if anyone's ever gotten any contacts from www.hauntedeyes.com and also... I know the colour max are really good an amazingly bright.

But I'm wondering especially if the mirage ice would stand out or blend into my original eye-colour... which is like... mid-blue. I know that the "tru" colours are more like 'watercolour' but I don't know what the "mirage" are like.

Here's a link to the mirage ice I'm thinking of: http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.c...4_1988_2307358

Although it's not realistic for most people here to obtain and do...

Anyone else every try hand painting their own scleral lenses?
They pretty much cover up my darker brown/hazel eye color.



Painted large and brown for a walrus mask.

well, they're glass (or really hard plastic)
I also don't want to paint them in any permanent way until I can cast and copy them. These are hard to come by.

I used pax (pros-aid + acrylic paint), so I've since then peeled and washed off the paint and have painted them a few different ways to get some more practice.
Currently I've painted them to get a wolf-like look for some other prosthetics, hope to get the application done soon..

As was tried out by Crystalike, I got these contacts from http://trycolorcontacts.stores.yahoo.net/, and I love them!

Acuvue 2 Color Opaques: Blue

This was my first pair of prescription color contact lenses, so thanks to this thread, I found something that would work with my eye color! My eyes are naturally a green-brown hazel, so they're in between "light" eyes and "dark" eyes. Makes it difficult for picking out contacts, as light ones only enhance lighter eyes and some opaque lenses have a pupil hole big enough to expose the natural color. But! These contacts actually cover quite a lot. I was impressed.

Pros:
-Colors are opaque and thus cover up my natural color
-Pupil hole is small, but not so small it disturbs my vision
-8.3 curve, which seems to fit just right, and are thus very comfortable
-Can wear these all day, pretty much just like my clear contacts
-Inexpensive!

Cons:
-Shipping had no options, so if you needed these contacts within a week, you'll have to get them elsewhere. No option for rush delivery
-...Can't think of anything else!

Overall: 5/5. I will be getting more of these.

Pictures:


Both contacts in; natural lighting.


Both in with flash.


No flash and with my natural eye color in the left eye.


Same thing with flash.

Is that actually safe? Putting glass or plastic in your eyes? Are even hard lenses made of glass and plastic these days? I hope the stuff is FDA approved at least, I would never put anything in my eyes that wasn't...

Also, acrylic paint? Is it a special kind or something? I know many kinds of acrylic paints are toxic on skin, let alone your eyes...where any unsterile substance can cause infections.

I mean, I could be totally wrong, but that sounds even more dangerous than using food coloring on soft lenses.

Well, as strange as it seems, scleral lenses did start out as hard glass, then hard plastic shells.
They're still made and used today, though more for treating eye conditions (keeping ointment in place), and are rigid gas permeable, which is a plastic that'll let air flow through it to your eye.
The old solid plastic ones (like mine) can't be worn long since it cuts off oxygen to the eye.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contact_lens

The history's pretty interesting.

It's fairly safe as long as I care for them, they're mostly for show in photos since I can't wear them long. Avoiding making scratches and burrs on the insides and keeping them in solution is all that's needed.
I doubt many people could handle shoving a huge chunk of plastic into their eye.
They don't touch your cornea, they sit on your sclera. leaving a pocket between your cornea and the lens.

The acrylic paint is mixed with pros-aid adhesive, so it won't flake/crumble off, it's like a rubbery paint that won't bleed when wet. They're painted on the outside of the lens, so it's not up against your eye, of corse I have to leave a pupil hole :P

When they're dry I let them sit in lens cleaning solution for a few hours. So they get cleaned and disinfected.

We'd probably need to organize it a little better, but I think so It is a great thread!

"I got these Blue lenses Pic 1 and Pic 2 about a year ago and I totally love them They work well in well lit areas and when wearing a light colored wig. You can see your own eye through them but it gives a very animated look to them. I do like the more subtleness these have compared to my ColorMax lenses at times. The first picture was taken inside in an indoor lighted bath room with the flash on. The flash really brightens them up! The second image was taken outside in natural light with no flash. I really love these contacts!! I don't think that the site I got them from exists any longer, sorry."

I found the website http://www.nighteyes.cc/, but what color did you order?
