Hmm, I found a few that might work:

I know your picture has much more black, but I haven't seen any like that. Sorry

How safe is it to buy contacts from the dealers room in an anime con?

As long as you fit the specs of the contact (most circle lenses/costume lenses sold are an 8.6 and a bit wider than average, and USUALLY they only sell plano but you can get lucky and find prescription sometimes) you ought to be fine; just check that it's a reputable brand they're selling. I bought my dollyeye lenses (also available at pinky paradise and dollyeye.com and are lenses with a good reputation/good reviews) from the dealer's room at Anime north since I was lucky enough that they also had prescription contacts for sale.
However, I don't recommend getting contacts from the DR if you've never, ever worn them before; like everyone here will say, make sure you get an exam and fitting to make sure you can wear contacts and you know how to properly take care of them and put them in and out. Cosplay contacts are also in general less comfy than regular prescription contacts, since they're usually thicker and aren't custom-fitted to your base curve and diameter, and that can take some getting used to even if you normally wear regular contacts. (Also, most recommend soaking new contacts for a few hours- some brands have a REALLY strong solution that really burns your eyes and needs to be soaked out before putting them on.)
