October 19, 2013 Leave a comment
Whether you want to be a spooky vampire or a creepy zombie for Halloween, special theatrical contacts are perfect for completing your costume. Halloween contact lenses are available for all ‘creatures of the night’ so it can be a lot of fun choosing lenses to match your costume. They’re great for completing your costume, going to a Halloween party or for acting in spooky video or play.
The first step is choosing Halloween contact lenses to complement your outfit. If you’re dressing up as a vampire, there are many types of contacts to choose from. Color-pop lenses in icy blue or emerald green are a striking choice or go for a hair-raising effect with blood-red lenses or stark white ones. For werewolves and were-cats, lenses with elongated pupils are a great choice. These were-animal lenses are available in eye-catching colors like green, yellow or white for a complete transformation on Halloween night.
Besides lenses for vampires and were-creatures, lens and eye health stores also offer black sclera contacts that cover the whole eye. These lenses are ideal for a dramatic look for Halloween. With these complete blackout lenses, you can transform into a wizard, an otherworld creature or a super villain for the night. Other costume lenses to choose from include baby eye lenses, anime lenses and lenses with illustration like flames or stars. Contact lenses in neon colors are also ideal for donning a spooky avatar for Halloween.
You’ll need to take the same basic precautions and care as you would with regular lenses while wearing your costume lenses. Wash your hands before handling the lenses to prevent an eye infection. Apply the makeup that is a part of your Halloween costume after putting on the lenses. Choose eye makeup in gel or liquid form and not loose powder so it stays on and doesn’t fall on your lenses after application.
While buying contacts for Halloween, you’ll need a prescription for them so schedule an appointment before choosing them. These lenses are available both for zero power prescription as well as corrective prescription. Non-corrective lenses are available instantly while it may take some time to ship lenses with prescription. It’s a good idea to choose Halloween contact lenses well before the day so you get them in time and have a chance to try them on before the big day.
