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!

Memorabilia Expo Birmingham 16.03.2013

This weekend we went to the event “Memorabilia/MCM“, based in Birmingham in the NEC. It’s held twice a year in March and November.

Compared to similar events, it was really chilled, really comfortable. We only went for the one day, and dressed as Gorillaz, Plastic Beach era. Our Noodley friend was going to the event too so it was a good chance to get some group pictures (sadly our Russ couldn’t make it).

Charlie did my makeup for me today as he is trained in it, and could give me the later Murdoc appearance I would struggle at doing. In return I ironed. He got to try out new water liner for the costume too which was exciting.

We got a taxi to the train station and hopped on with JD and Coke in hand, noticing other cosplayers on the train too. I always think that is nice to see in such events, even if I don’t have a clue what they were wearing.

The con itself is £10 entry, and offers stalls, guests, talks and shows, much like London Expo (but a lot smaller and much less busier).

We got to see some old and lovely faces, and also meet some new ones.

Bumped into Angie whom appears in a couple of our photos and met up with our Noodle.

And had many lovely people asking us for pictures! They are all floating about on the internet at the moment, if you see any feel free to give me a bell!

Also Foxy took us some group pictures, which was fantastic. These are in the editing process at the moment but if you are interested in seeing any of these, you will be able to find them most likely here or here.

We met two lovely ladies one of which sweetly gave us a postcard of her art, and her website can be found here.

After a while we ended up drinking cider at the bar. Then everything goes a bit fuzzy really. Ended up going home and drinking tea.
