Fancy dress parties are a lot of fun, but it is always hard to find ways to make your costume unique. Colour contact lenses could do just that; you are sure to be the talk of the party. It is always a great idea to pay attention to details when it comes to the whole effect of the outfit. These small details can instantly transform your appearance from mundane to insane and bring your costume to life.
Getting that character’s look down to the ‘T’ can be as simple as putting in some coloured eye contacts for the evening.
Become a vampire for the night and draw inspiration from the grossly anticipated films of our generation, from Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series. Use Twilight contacts for a more subtle look and woo yourself your own Bella. If the romantic side of being a vampire isn’t for you, the use of red coloured contacts can instantly transform the look into the dangerous and compelling vampire villain.
The blockbuster that is on the tips of everyone’s tongues is Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, so why not become the Mad Hatter by sporting some green coloured contacts and take with you inspiration from Johnny Depp’s weird yet wonderful costume.
If sci-fi is more your thing than fantasy, why not try something a bit different, steering away from robots and captain costumes and try out the more graceful Avatar characters? It is a simple costume, blue body paint, a tail and some yellow coloured contacts. Ben Stiller suited up in his very own interpretation of the characters at the Oscars ceremony. It blew audiences away, so why not try it out for yourself?
Steering away from the films of this year, the hit American TV series Supernatural has made fighting demons and combating all supernatural evil cool again, and some can argue better than Buffy ever could. The best thing about dressing as a demon is that all you have to wear to make the look complete is a pair of black eyes, which is easily done with the help of our block coloured contacts.
Whoever you choose to dress up as at the party make sure you look spectacular by having fun playing with the colour of your eyes. Once you step into the party enjoy all the attention and compliments; you will be getting a lot of them.
Other Costume Ideas:
Create Amber Rose’s Look
Amber Rose is well known for pairing her fashion forward style with some unique accessories. The model has sported a pair of white contact lenses that have made quite an impression and have ensured she stands out from the crowd. However, the starlet has also sported a pair of dazzling blue contacts, which complimented her skin tone wonderfully.
Become a Black Swan
To get into character, costumes can play a great part, but it can be the smallest of details that can transform a great actress to a Golden Globe winner. Natalie Portman in the hit film Black Swan wore a pair of contact lenses that look very similar to our Hell Raiser contact lenses, which are predominantly black, but boast a red line that outlines the circumference of the lenses.
Transform yourself into an elf
There are three main elves that help create the magical story of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings; Legolas, Galadriel and Arwen. No matter which elf is your favourite you can re-create their mystical look effortlessly with the help of Eyesbright. To capture the essence of Legolas or Galadriel you’ll love our range of blue contact lenses varying in hues from Cool Blue contact lenses to aqua coloured lenses. However, if it is the romantic story that is told behind Arwen’s eyes that you adore, all you could ever need to become the elf princess can be found in our collection of brown contacts.
Get Michael Jackson’s thrilling look
Undoubtedly one of the creepiest scenes of the Thriller video is when Michael Jackson turns to the camera at the end with his evil yellow eyes. You’re lead into a false pretence of thinking that it’s all a dream, yet the menacing beast remains and you’re left believing that he will continue his evil plan. We recommend you wear these yellow cats eyes contact lenses to really capture MJ’s zombie character.
Paris Hilton agrees - That’s hot
She is a chameleon in front of cameras, always playing her part as the ditsy heiress that people can either mock and sympathise with, after all money doesn’t buy you intelligence! When being the ditsy blonde, Paris wears a pair of blue contact lenses to cover her naturally dark eyes and you can do the same with the help of Eyesbright, who have a dedicated range of lenses for dark eyes.
