Annnnnd the big one I have wanted to write about for a while yet managed to keep putting it off. Pinky Paradise review time! Well, 4 pairs of circle lenses to be exact. Now, the company themselves are fantastic to … Continue reading 

Contact Lens Review – Funnylens.de “Blind White”

Ok, so for a couple of upcoming cosplays I am going to be eye patched. I thought it would be nice attention to detail to blind and scar one eye so if I do take off the eye patch for a while, it won’t ruin anything from the costume! So, on the hunt for a blind lens Charlie stumbled across FunnyLens from Germany. I used their ebay to order, as it was easier and everything was already set up for me. They were fairly cheap to order, I think it came to about £23 and it got here really fast with DHL/Parcelforce. Less than a week fast. They came today, so I thought I would give them a quite write up!

They came in a box, with free case and solution which I wasn’t really expecting.

They came safe and sound so really all was left was to try them on! All pictures were taken on an Iphone and in natural light.

One eye

Both eyes

Got them in fine, they feel as comfortable as the circle lenses I own. Obviously the only odd feeling is you can’t see through them, but the milky effect is fantastic. Would be great for a zombie shoot? (Also I will mention now I had just got back from work so I look a bit rough and scruffy but please ignore that haha)

The specs are:

  • dia: 14.0 mm
  • bc: 8.6 mm
  • lifespan: 1 year

I have naturally light eyes and I do usually take a prescription but obviously in this case I don’t have to worry about that.

Also, here is a video so you can see them moving, they are quite good at not slipping and look very cool.

Right so,

Comfort: 4/5
They are very comfortable but being blind is an unusual sensation. No slipping though!

Appearance 5/5
They look fantastic.

I am looking forward to using these!

Kracie ねるねるねるね

So…I will try to get round to actually blog about all the things I intend to blog about. But for now a short one to get me in the swing of it again.

I got this “Kracie Popin Cookin” thing…uh Neru-neru Neru-ne soda flavour. It seemed like a fun thing to try! It tasted pretty good to be honest, like really…fake flavouring (but I like that). I would definitely want to try another one, but they are pretty pricey. This one came from Cyber Candy of Birmingham at £4.99ish.

This was very easy to understand (I think even if you know no Japanese) and very quick and simple. It doesn’t take much in needing anything, I think it was just add water basically. I think I may of added too much though. I really liked the hard candy pieces, they reminded me a little of one of my other Japanese addictions; Ramune candy.
