“I’ve fallen in love with you. I love you even now when you sit before me with the eyes of a wolf. So take pity upon the fool I have become. I forgot it was only a bargain between us.”
― Ronda Thompson, The Untamed One
I’ve said it many times in this wild online world: werewolves are kinda my thing. It started back in 1994 when my parents let me stay up late and soak up some moonlight while watching Stephen King’s Silver Bullet, I’ve been hooked ever since. That night left a monstrous paw print on my spooky little 4-year-old soul. My friends and family may describe my unhealthy obsession as a curse; I’ve got a werewolf as one of the main focuses of my living room decor. If you’re even the least bit frightened by them, steer clear of my corner of the woods. I guess you can say I’ve got the heart–and now eyes, of a wolf.
When you’re cosplaying or putting together a jaw-dropping costume for Halloween, anything that will make your look more realistic is incredibly helpful in getting into the spirit of things. We’ve been able to enhance our eye color using contact lenses since around 1978. I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never worn costume contacts before SpookyEyes; but I’ve been wearing ordinary contacts or 12 years. That’s 12 years of touching my own eyeball regularly to insert my every day clear contacts and some gray colored lenses I wear on occasion.
SpookyEyes sent me a pair of wolf contact lenses to try out. I saw “wolf” and put the “were” in front of it, naturally. Werewolves are the best wolves, after all.
The lenses arrived in a blister pack, instead of vials. The pair I received are colored bright red with a bright yellow design in the center to mimic the iris of a wolf’s eye. The lenses themselves were surprisingly thicker than what I’m accustomed to, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Thicker lenses make them easier to handle (if you’re not a contacts veteran, sometimes thinner lenses flop over dramatically and are a beast to get in place). The color is completely opaque for maximum wolf effect except for the clear center for your pupil.
When I first put them in, I had to blink a couple times for my eyes to adjust to the color. At first there was a red haze in the corners of my vision, much like the first few seconds of non-costume colored lenses. They were very comfortable to wear and I forgot I had them in after a while. These wolf lenses are available right here at SpookyEyes.com. They’re wonderful, and have earned their Sam Seal of Approval.
I’m craving to get my paws on a couple more pairs of SpookyEyes contacts, so I’ve started a wish list:
- Blackout lenses – these are perfect for doe-eyed makeup looks
- Eclipse lenses – these have a black center so your pupils will look mega dilated
- Aqua cat eye lenses – I’m itching to try cat eyes, to see if my own furry friends will notice
If this is your first time looking into contact lenses of any kind, you may be worried about the comfort aspect and/or your ability to put them in pain-free. I have grown my nails into claws and I have no issues with them at all; although it may sound like a horror to first-timers.
Armed with my claws, SpookyEyes wolf lenses and my monster lovin’ heart, I think I’m ready for some good old fashioned lurking under a full moon. Are you?
P.S: MTV’s Teen Wolf’s new season premieres tonight. I’m dressed the part! 🙂
