Heterochromatic eyes help - Akashi

I'm planning to cosplay Akashi Seijuro from Kuroko no Basuke but this character has two different coloured eyes.

I've looked around but have really struggled to find a yellow/gold/orange contact like his eye and if I do I cannot find a red one to match it.

This is the character:

Can anyone recommend any contacts I can use? I know I need the contacts to match which is where the problem is hitting me.

The only contact site I know of and trust is PinkyParadise but I have been unable to find any contacts on there for him.

I did think of the twilight ones but I wasn't quite sure if they stood out enough for the character.

Sadly those contacts are two different sizes but the red ones are gorgeous.

I have thought of this site but I don't know if its a good and trustworthy one? Has anyone used it before?

The red and brown - that the site says actually are more golden.

While not a perfect match, these are pretty close:
EOS New Adult Red and EOS Dolly Eye Brown (looks gold, not brown)

For comparison, here's a review of the Red lenses.

Oh wow! Those look fabulous! I'll just check out the review now as the red doesn't have any pictures on the site.

Thank you.

One is 14.2 and one 14 will that show up really badly? I don't want to look like I have one large and one small eye.

Nope, I have worn both kinds of lenses and the size difference isn't noticeable unless someone breaks out a ruler, in which case, strange danger/ personal space violations galore.

Honey Color is a great site too for contact lenses. I've ordered my first pair from there and plan to order more in the future from them!

Haha awesome. I'm still learning what the measurements mean so I wasn't sure how big the difference would be.



Thank you

You might want to check out Youknowit.com.
You can purchase lenses there as a pair or individually. =]

And I cannot tell if he has cat eyes or something along those lines. o..o

https://www.pinkyparadise.com/GBT_Brown_p/c14-gbtbr.htm try those for the gold, and then again, these for the red. https://www.pinkyparadise.com/EOS_Ne...5-j203-red.htm

They're the same size so it should work.
