It’s Halloween month and we all know what that means–costumes! If you’re still unsure about what to wear for this exciting celebration, we can help you decide by inspiring you to buy coloured contact lenses that can make one convincing look. Check out the following eye colours and the costumes they can match with:
If you have dark-coloured eyes, you can make your Halloween extra-special by shocking people with brighter eye colour. Wearing bright blue contact lenses is a good place to start. It’s a perfect opportunity for you to imitate one of these fictional characters:
Elsa of Arendelle from “Frozen”
Most people easily recognize Elsa through her platinum blonde hair and sheer blue costume. However, you can’t perfectly imitate her look without her radiant blue eyes. To make the colour pop Elsa-style, wear purple eyeshadow, rosy blush, and red lips.
Night King from “Game of Thrones”
The TV version of George R. R. Martin’s masterpiece “A Song of Ice and Fire” makes sure to give the Night King a more sinister look by emphasizing the colour of his blue eyes with a shining look. A dazzling pair of blue contact lenses will do the trick.
Then, try to capture the entire look of the Night King’s face either with professional makeup or a mask. This will surely require more effort than most costumes, not to mention the fact that his meticulously detailed outfit will only make things more challenging. However, this is a surefire way to impress everybody while successfully scaring some people and expressing your love for your favourite series. What better way to celebrate Halloween than that?
If you think changing your original eye colour to blue is too predictable, you can try green. We have two iconic characters in mind who are known for their intense green eyes. They’re of different genders, but one thing’s for sure–they’re both crazy!
The Mad Hatter from “Alice in Wonderland”
Johnny Depp’s look in the 2010 movie version of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” is fun and exciting to imitate. His emerald green eyes pair perfectly with his crazy red hair. This costume may appear complicated, but it’s achievable with a red wig or hair dye, top hat, Victorian ensemble, long socks, and brown shoes. Don’t forget your teapot!
Poison Ivy from the “Batman” franchise
Halloween is known for sexy costumes as well. Steer away from the usual sexy bunnies, cats, and superheroes by picking something more unique to celebrate the occasion with a bang. One of the easiest to imitate is Poison Ivy, an iconic female villain from the “Batman” franchise. Just use green contact lenses, make your hair red, and wear a tight green catsuit or a combination of bodysuit and leggings/stockings.
Brown eyes are quite common but with a lighter shade like hazel, it can become a statement. It has a fierce look, which is why we recommend the following costume categories (unlike the previous options which are taken from specific series or movies):
Centuries of stories about vampires have given creative minds the freedom to interpret what they could look like if they were real. If you want a fiercer look without going overboard with yellowish or reddish eyes, you can change your eye colour to hazel, honey, or other light brown shades. If you’re a “Twilight” fan, hazel is close enough to copper as eye colour.
Lions, tigers, domestic cats–you name it! Animal costumes are pretty popular as well during Halloween. Luckily for you, a lot of physical and online stores offer lion and cat costumes. It will even be easier for you if you choose to be a tiger, cheetah, or leopard. Simply find clothes with a jungle cat pattern, wear cat ears, sport creative makeup, and put in light brown contact lenses.
Planning to lean towards the scarier side? You can’t go wrong with grey eyes. It will seem like you only have pupils, no irises. That’s why you can pull off an otherworldly look with this eye colour.
It’s hard to turn your entire eye into a pure white or black colour because you have to either hide your pupil or sclera (the white portion of your eye). That’s why it’s best for you to use grey contact lenses if you want to be a moving skeleton for Halloween.
If your natural eye colour is bright or has a romantic look, it can be challenging to convince people that you’re a scary ghost. You should definitely cover it with grey contacts to really take your costume up a notch.
Emily from “Corpse Bride”
Come to think of it, it can be easy to imitate Emily from Tim Burton’s stop-motion movie “Corpse Bride”. You just need to ruin a cheap or old wedding dress and a veil. You can also decorate yourself with dried flowers. The catch? Emily only has pupils in her eyes. It’s a good thing grey lenses exist.
You can easily reimagine common fantasy characters with light blue contact lenses. They’re almost the same as grey contacts because of their slightly transparent look, but they don’t have a disturbing appearance.
Just put on tiny wings and voilà–you’re a fairy! You can imitate Tinkerbell from “Peter Pan” or create your own look. Light blue contact lenses can give you a mystical vibe.
Elsa from “Frozen” is an iconic ice queen, but you can reimagine that kind of femme fatale character with a cooler (no pun intended) or more mysterious look. Elsa looks gentle, so you can go the other way and look fiercer even without using warm colours like yellow, brown, and red. Just pull off a stern face with light blue contact lenses.
Let’s save the most special one for last. The previous eye colours we’ve mentioned could be anybody’s natural colour. But, purple? It’s definitely an interesting choice.
Daenerys Targaryen from “A Song of Ice and Fire”
We intended to emphasize “A Song of Ice and Fire” instead of “Game of Thrones” because the book version of Daenerys Targaryen has violet eyes, not the one portrayed by Emilia Clarke. Being the Mother of Dragons in Halloween is so exciting, even more so if you’re going to stay true to the books and wear purple contact lenses.
Since we’ve mentioned “A Song of Ice and Fire” too many times here, does it mean we’re talking about the elves from “The Lord of the Rings” right now? Sadly, no. However, some elves from different fictional works have violet or purple eyes. Use that as an inspiration and use violet contacts.
