Rather you call it Japanimation or anime, the Japanese style of cartooning has a few distinctive factors which are hard to ignore. The chunky hair styles are angular and sharp, while the stand-out facial feature is undeniably the huge eyes and wide irises. While you can easily fashion your hair in anyway you wish with enough effort, changing your eyes to resemble an anime character was at one time, pretty impossible.
It seems that a few companies are now starting to produce Extra-Wide Contact Lenses which give you that deer-caught-in-the-headlights wide irised look. Ranging from prices between $30-$50 a pair, depending on the company you purchase from. Cosplay was never this realistic.
If you’re worried about your contacts having the proper prescription, don’t fret. These contacts aren’t limited to cosmetic purposes. Just send the companies your proper prescription and the lenses are made to order, so you’ll still see the world clearly.
There are a few companies which are offering these Extra-Wide Contacts, both Geo and Dueba will ship the pair right out to you when ordered from Shopping Times. So if you’ve been looking for the right costume for the next anime convention, you might be in luck.
