Anime eyes

Anime contact lenses.jpg

News on Japan features these special contact lenses designed to make you look more like an Anime/manga character, ideal for cosplayers. And since you can have them made to your prescription they are perfect for short-sighted cosplayers too! Vampire and zombie fans have been able to have prescription horror lenses for a few years now so I suppose this was almost inevitable. Personally I am still holding out for contacts which give me real heat vision or laser beam eyes. I did go to one of those laser eye clinics but sadly I had misunderstood the nature of their product and it didn’t involve giving me the ability to vanquish all of my enemies with coherent beams of energy fired from my eyes. Darn. (via Boing Boing)

    45-65 bucks, chose the Korean brand because a few brands are sold. Go to Pacific Mall in Toronto and you can buy them there! They are usually willing to haggle the prices too -wink-
