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!

DVD Review – Chernobyl Diaries (And bits of other stuff)

I honestly have heard mixed reviews on this one, but wanted to watch it anyway to see what was going on. I picked it up cheap from Blockbuster (cause our local one is closing down sadly…well kinda sadly, cause there is a lot of reduced stuff in there) and me and Charlie watched it the other night.

Chernobyl Diaries (2012 dir: Bradley Parker)
Genre; Horror.
Age; 15

Plot:

So, basically tourists get lost because they go somewhere they probably shouldn’t and they get into trouble.

The Film (Spoilers):

Oh jeeeeeeeeeez with many e’s. It was pretty much a bog standard American style horror. The characters in it (I can ONLY remember Chris, as we were making Resident Evil jokes about his name being called) were so bland and formulated it could of been any film. (I only liked the minor characters and you KNEW they were gonna kick the bucket). I feel it was really obvious what was going to happen, and I don’t think either one of us “jumped” at it. The end..also, was so..obvious. It really did lend heavily to horror game related things, and I was told it was very similar to the Silent Hill film in some ways.

THE CG WHAT? That’s all I am going to say. I don’t think I have ever seen…a less realistic bear in a film. It was something like this? (Which is all well and good, but in a high budget film and all). The smoke too! What was that? When he kicks the fire away.

I can’t slag it off too much though. Some of the scenery was gorgeous, and the interior bits looked fantastic.  The music, also, that was really really good. Diego Stocco I think I’ve gotta say, this was the best thing about the film. I admit, I liked the Marilyn Manson song at the end too (whom I recently realised I have been into for 14 years erk).

This Release:

It’s an ex-rental copy, so I don’t think it is blessed with such things.

Special Features:

N/A

Summary:

2/5 – It was poor. The idea itself was amazing. But the execution was awful. I may give it another watch, on maybe a “lets watch crap films” night, but I can’t say I was wowed.

And in other news, hitting Memorabilia this weekend and cosplay Gorillaz-ing it up. Expect images I guess! (Maybe on the blog, maybe here). And and and and and looking forward to many travels this year, all will be written about in due course. I am so excited.
