I already wear contacts?!

Hi! I have been sewing a Teutonic knight Prussia cosplay and I have a problem, I've got almost everything but Prussia is an albino. His being albino makes red contacts a main part of the cosplay and I can't think of any substitutes for red pupils, which is a HUGE problem because I already wear contacts. Does anybody else have any ideas? Thank you in advance!

The Only solution would be to ask for some prescription contacts with the force ( I don't know if that's how you're saying that ahah, my mistake... ) You normally wear. They might be a little more expensive than cosmetic ones tho, I know that some website offers prescriptions lenses if you need some

Unless you have a hard to find prescription, contacts with prescription are easy to find and usually won't cost you more. I use http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Default.asp for my contacts and I am a daily contact wearer.

i'm assuming by pupil you meant iris, since most contacts aren't going to change your pupil color, although i have seen one person with a pair of red contacts that didn't have a pupil hole (they weren't sclera, but also covered the pupil. from what i heard, it was a bit more difficult to see).

i have these red contacts and they are really really nice and bright (and i mean bright !! these are really great for cosplay. the picture on that link if you scroll down is pretty accurate) and they came in my ridiculously strong prescription of -5.00 (right) and -4.50 (left).
