I need orange contacts that come in prescription that will show up on dark eyes. And not a 'flat' orange, but a nice blended 'natural' (as natural as orange can look anyway!) shade.

Help?!

Cyan-sonata: I would recommend looking at ColorMax Amber lenses. Those are the only ones that come to mind and are available in prescription without being insanely expensive/custom.

http://www.cosplaylab.com/proshop/cosmeticlens.asp

And if you have money for custom lenses
http://02a5349.netsolstores.com/ This place is great.

Has anyone heard anything about The Badger's Den ? Are they on some "avoid this seller" list that I missed somehow?

I'm currently opening a dispute against them with paypal, haven't heard a single word out of them since ordering over a month ago, no email reponses no calls answered, nothing. T_T

With that said, any recommendations for Ulquiorra contacts?

I would definitely avoid that seller. They are located within the US, so they are selling the lenses illegally.

Escalate the dispute to a claim so you can get your money back.

The hell am I talking about? For some reason I thought they were selling circle lenses. (I've got to stop interneting when I'm tired)

Anyway, their site says orders will be shipped (depending on type ordered) 10-15 days or 3-4 weeks.

Since you haven't heard from the seller or received your order, escalate it to a claim. You don't have to provide any proof to paypal, except to say that you haven't received your order and you haven't heard from the dealer.

Just a minor update concerning the lenses by color lists I try to maintain:
I decided to migrate the lists to Pinterest rather than pulling the plug on them. I am in the process of redesigning my website so the directory page is much simpler but it will take you where you want to go.

The reason for the migration is that the tables I was using were becoming too difficult to manage and display all on 1 page and loading could be slow for some people but Pinterest has sort of filled this need. When you pick a color, you will be redirected to a Pinterest board for that color and can still browse through pictures etc. and get directly linked to a page where you can buy said lenses. In the comments for each lens I listed, you will see the "name", price, and if it is available in prescription or plano only. Additionally, the lists have been updated.

If you want to suggest something to be added, PM me with a link and I will add it. Thanks.

I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation based on these two images: http://i.imgur.com/cJlyHtn.jpg http://i.imgur.com/9crdlfQ.jpg

She has a rather bright blue color in the artwork and mild blue in the cutscenes.

I was leaning towards http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Venus_E...s-eye-blue.htm but I'm open to suggestions from others. I would go for ColorMax Blue, but they're not available in my prescription (-6.50). I also have dark brown eyes.

Hey there! Can anyone recommend me a nice pair of red contacts that will show somewhat vividly on medium green eyes? I'd prefer non-prescription. I'm mostly concerned about them being visible because the last time I bought lenses, they were barely noticeable against my eyes.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to find byakugan eyes for an Hinata cosplay, my girlfriend wants her cosplay to be perfect, so she want's the blind ones, and wants me to guide her around.. (woo fun) but she also need's then on prescription if possible, she doesn't want to be hinata with glasses. xD. I've looked at some links on this site, but most of them are dead, and I have tried google with no success, so here I am asking everyone on here.

Any help will be much appreciated. ^^

Thanks in advance. :P

Contact Recommendation

Hello to all!
I was wondering if anyone would possibly recommend some contacts for me.
First, I have a prescription which is -3.00 and a BC of 8.4, as well as having dark eyes. (Yeah me! hehe...)
Anyways the character is the lovely Captain Amelia from the Disney movie Treasure Planet. She has two different eye sets. One is the cat eyes, the other is regular eyes. I have linked pictures below. I would prefer the cat eyes. However, I will be perfectly happy with the regular eyes.

Venus Eye Blue is a good choice, there are also Dolce Blue, Fynale Honoo, or Vassen Cloud Nines that will show well.

Most "red" lenses show up really brightly on dark eyes. "Wine" color is more subtle, obviously. Check these out

FYI If she wants true "blind" lenses that cover the pupil, the lenses are never powered since the wearer cannot see through the lenses properly. If she wants some vision, there are generic whiteout lenses, unfortunately those do not come powered either as they are generally for costume purposes only. I have a list of a few white contact lenses on my Pinterest http://pinterest.com/Jacksonfrost/white-contact-lenses/

Cat eye lenses are also considered "costume" lenses so unless you have big bucks for custom lenses, they will unfortunately always be plano. That said, one pro of getting custom lenses is that they are prism balanced so the contact will not spin thusly no derpy eyes (slit pupils going sideways etc. which happens with non-custom cat eye lenses).

As to regular green lenses that show well, I'm linking my green lens pinterest board, you can also see the plano green cat lenses http://pinterest.com/Jacksonfrost/green-contact-lenses/

Thank you so much for you help. Yes it's looking like I may just be waiting on the contacts and saving for some custom ones. I would rather wait and get good quality that will last. But thank you again. ^_^

I was actually wondering if you knew of a site that offered just regular colored contacts that over a base curve of and 8.3 instead of an 8.6?
