Hello! Sorry I have been kinda awol! I had Birmingham MCM come up and then Kitacon the week after and in between this I have been working a ton!The lenses in this post are sponsored by Uniqso but the views expressed … Continue reading
So, I was after cosplay lenses again and Charlie recommended me this website “CircleLens2U“. I was after grey lenses to try, and they had a promotion on (which they seem to do quite regularly), which made the contacts, prescription and shipping, less than £10. Jumped on it.
To note; I have naturally light eyes which are quite large anyway, images were taken on an Iphone, and all in natural light (except the one with red eye and obvious flash). I take a 3.50 and a 3.25 prescription.
The company themselves are absolutely fine, I would say their website isn’t as well made as PinkyParadise say, but with such cheap offers it is worth checking out. Also, their standard shipping was amazingly fast. The lenses got to me in under 5 days.
The contacts themselves it was hard to find any information on. I believe them to be a re-named Dueba pair, as they look identical and they have the same colours available. Excuse me looking derp. I would say it was quite nice trying a new company to order from.
The specs are:
- dia; 14.2mm
- bc; 8.6mm
- lifespan; 1 year
Had no trouble with these pair.
Not overly noticeable but good for subtle things. Can look slightly brown.
Not a great enlargement.
Ok, ok, they just arrived today. Pinky Paradise were one again wonderful to deal with, the contacts were a day late but that was due to Fedex bumping them off the first flight for room. Had my prescription in stock … Continue reading
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
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.
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.

They are very comfortable but being blind is an unusual sensation. No slipping though!
They look fantastic.
I am looking forward to using these!
