Costume contacts lenses were a big hit last year, and it is being claimed that they are going to be even bigger this year.
Last Halloween, there was huge demand for costume contacts lenses, thanks to the popularity of the Twilight series movies.
Twilight further popularized the vampire and werewolf looks for Halloween and other events, and had contacts flying off the shelves (or into online shopping carts).
People love to spend the time and money on looking as realistic as possible, when it comes to their costumes. Vampire contacts were popular for creating the red eyes of Robert Pattison.
This year has seen the release of yet another Harry Potter movie, one that is filled with mythical creatures. Many fans can't wait to dress up as their favorite creature, with 'real eyes' to boot.
The problem isn't if novelty contact lenses are even available, rather it's knowing which look you want to go for. Suppliers are offering so many different styles and colors, it's tough choosing from so many cool contacts.
If you need vision correction, you will have to decide if you want to wear glasses with your costume contacts, 'cause you definitely can't wear costume contacts on top of your clear contacts.
Otherwise, if you want sight correction, you will want costume contacts that have prescription power. Not all the choices of contacts come in prescription, as many are plano (non-prescription), but there are still tons to choose from.
