Like most women in this country I have brown eyes. Don’t misread me I love my eye color. As you know I am a dancer and often perform. For such occasions I thought for a while that it would be fun to enhance my dance costume by switching the eye color to match the character I am dancing. Thus, when Spooky Eyes looked for bloggers to present their contacts I applied. I so wanted to test-drive them. I mean I wear hair pieces in my performances. Thus, being serious about dancing, wearing the right eye color is just about being serious at what character you present in your performance.
The photo above shows one of the contact lenses. These are thesoft natural violet ones. The lens pattern is printed on with a large clear area for an optimal field of view. I could not see the pattern when I was wearing the lenses. Note that they are larger in size than normal contacts as they have to cover the entire color part of the eye.
No sizing needed
These contacts are one size fits all. I wear hard contacts, a green and a blue one as you probably know. when you are a regular visitor of my blog. I wear contacts since more than 25 years. Thus, I have a good basis for comparison. The contacts that Spooky Eyes sent me as a sample are soft contacts. It took me a little longer than normal to put the first one in. I was irritated by the contact lens’ flipping up and down when I was trying to put it in. Hard lenses don’t do that. After I had grasped that I just had to open the eye far wider than for my hard contacts putting in the second soft one was a piece of cake.
I was a little worried about getting them out as the instruction read that one should put in wetting drops if one has difficulties removing the lenses. I was very surprised that I could flip them out as easily as my hard ones.
I was pretty impressed that I got naturally looking blue eyes when wearing them. They nearly look like my sister’s blue eyes except that hers are less patterned. I liked being blue eyed for fun. I wore them for going out dancing and test-driving the reaction of friends. Interestingly, when they said something it was that I would look different today. Well, spooky eyes. 😉
Spooky Eyes for Halloween
Spooky Eyes sells not only real looking color contact lenses so you can make a fashion statement or enhance the character of the person you are dancing/playing with a different eye color, but also cat eye contacts, zombie contacts, witch yellow contacts, vampire contacts, white eyes, etc. Besides these expected ones for performance and Halloween, they also have contacts that look just natural except for the eye pattern. Spiral pattern or leopard print. These ones are for sure an ice breaker at any party 😉
Now comes the quiz. In which of the following photos of my OOTD do I wear the violet contacts that gave me blue eyes. Blue eyes sounds so romantic <3.
Reasons to change the eye color
You do not need to be a dancer to want to change your eye color. For other special occasions like playing a certain character in a theater group, Halloween, a costume party,and even a high school reunions – if you want to achieve that nobody recognizes you 😉 , you name it, it might also to be fun to switch the eye color with Spooky Eyes.
