Lightning - FFXIII Contacts help! :3

Hello! I'm having trouble choosing contacts for Lightning from Final fantasy XIII. I'm debating on choosing a gray color or a blue color XDD at the moment, i can only order from
www.trycolorcontacts.stores.yahoo.net :x I want something that looks natural but fits Lightning's eye color as well. Can someone help me find the perfect color for her? :]

btw i have dark brown eyes ^^

You want a pair that is ice blue. Her colour palette is the opposite of Noctis which he has steel blue hair and red eyes.

You probably want to go with the GEO Angel series which are more subtle but work with dark eyes.

I've found very few affordable lens that are that icy blue color (and that will actually show up, I have dark brown eyes too!). I would also recommend Geo, in the Nudy Golden Blue. They are the first circle lens I ever got.. they're more subtle in real life, but show up nicely in photos.
Here's a random google image that's not an official promo so you can see what it looks like on a real person :P http://juz2shop.com/yahoo_site_admin...792446_std.jpg

I would also suggest geo's tri colour blue (also called honey blue). They are very natural because they have no ring. Since Lightning's eyes are more like a real person I think they would be better then angel if they work for you.

In the link that Ani BEE provided, those tri color grey lenses look pretty darn close!

I plan to cosplay Lightning as well so I've looked around for contacts myself. From what I found, GEO Nudy Golden Blue contacts are perfect!

I used this ref of Lightning to find contacts : http://i50.tinypic.com/537lnb.jpg

And this is a picture of someone wearing the Golden Blue Nudys : http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/h...e/DSC00165.jpg

I think these are pretty darn perfect for Lightning. : D

I had the same issue and ended up buying the Baby Blue Natural touch lenses which are specifically made for people with dark eyes I have dark brown eyes and it brought my color to a significant shade of blue! They are the same lenses used by Paris Hilton as well! they are pricey though but you do pay for good quality!
