Halloween is a fun time for kids and adults alike. Granted that watching kids on a sugar-high running around the neighborhood is a bit scary, but dressing up in elaborate costumes, putting on creepy makeup, and setting up fancy special effects to give the neighborhood children a nice scare is quite exciting.
One of the fun and artistic aspects of putting on a Halloween costume is the wide selection of colored contact lenses that can match your outfit. With the advent of Halloween contact lenses, otherwise known as special effects or costume lenses, anyone with an affinity for wearing elaborate and flamboyant costumes during Halloween can make their outfits even more terrifying and authentic.
There are literally hundreds of different colored contact lens designs to choose from. Some are subtle enough to wear on a daily basis, while others are rather freaky and strange that they are absolutely perfect for Halloween. One of these strange contact lenses is the Mesh Contact Lens. This type of contact lens is quite popular among cosplayers and Halloween enthusiasts. Its clever design completely alters your appearance, giving you a strange and mysterious look. The lens covers the cornea (the colored part of the eye) including the pupil, but it still allows you to see through the holes in the mesh. If your intention is to look freaky and strange this coming Halloween, the mesh design contact lens is perfect for you.
White lenses are another freaky, but beautiful, Halloween contacts that may fit in perfectly with your costume. It’s an all white contact lens with a tiny black dot at the center. If you watch zombie movies and TV shows like The Walking Dead, then you’ve probably seen these contact lenses. Catching someone staring at you with those eyes is kind of freaky and terrifying, don’t you agree? Wearing these for Halloween will definitely help you stand out from the rest. Industrial rocker Marilyn Manson also wears white lenses in one eye to match his grotesque gothic makeup.
If a pair of white contact lens gives you a zombie-like look, black contact lenses provide an aura of mystery and strangeness. Instead of the natural color of your iris, this contact lens design merges the natural blackness of your pupils and transforms the cornea into a black hole that will mesmerize everyone you talk to at the party, creating a truly mystical and freaky look.
In addition to colored contact lenses that completely transform your natural eye color into something out of the ordinary, there are contact lens designs though that adds a bit of a twist and fun into the already strange nature of Halloween contact lenses. A good example would be an 8-ball imprint on your cornea, or a bloody razor, a smiley face, the ace of spades perhaps, or even a tiny cross. There are a variety of contact lens designs that can make your overall appearance even more freaky and strange.
If you already have a costume for the Halloween, getting a good pair of colored contact lenses will only add authenticity and appeal to the look you are trying to achieve. Freak out your friends with a pair of blood red, white, or black contact lenses. And if you’re looking to meet new people, the freakish nature of your eyes can be a good conversation starter.
