violet contact help?

I plan to cosplay Fem!Canada for another convention, but I want to try and use contacts this time... I found some violet contacts, but I don't know if they will work.... I want a natural look to them rather then bold and unrealistic...

Here's a link to the ones I was looking at:http://www.viplenses.com/collections...contact-lenses

..sorry if this isn't where I'm suppose to put this, I'm new to this website.....
Thanks!

I really like the color and I think close up they really look like Canadas eyes. But I have a feeling that from far away they won't be too noticeable... People may not notice you are wearing contacts from a distance. However if you like them and think they match the best definitely get them.

Those contacts have a very nice look to them but there is one thing you really need to keep in mind:
Your natural eye colour.

Unless you have very, very, very light coloured eyes, those contacts likely will not good on your eyes and cause things to look horribly unnatural.

I always recommend PinkyParadise as a good place to look over a wide selection of contacts.
Click me to see PinkyParadise!

Now, if your eyes will not clash with those lenses, I definitely recommend getting them!

I think they could work, yes!
This may sound really weird but if you posted an actual image of your eyes/eye colour, that would help a lot!

A character reference as well as a photo of your natural eye color could help us to give you suggestions for what contacts to get.
