First Time Testing Contact Lenses

Hello folks!

Now it's the first time for me to try on contact lenses and my choice of lenses are the Super Pinky Hazel ones from the Super Pinky brand. These lenses are bought from Honeycolor. At first I thought they would be way more uncomfortable for the eye than they were. The left eye lens went pretty smoothly in but the right... gosh, it took some time and my eyelid derped a lot! That is why it looks like I had cried in the last photo. When I finally got in the right lens correctly, my eye immediately answered with a  "dirt in the eye" reflex so I just had to hold on, close my eyes and blink like crazy until it felt better. In the end it felt nice with both lenses on. Hence my sight right now is a little bit blurry but nothing that I would focus too much on. It could also be, that I am somewhat tired. The lenses will be used for my Keisuke Sannan (Hakuōki: Shinsengumi Kitan) and Kratos Aurion (Tales of Symphonia) cosplay. Both are characters that I will cosplay a lot in the future, so getting lenses for them was a good investment.

Here is some photos!

Lens review:

Color: 8/10 
Very clear and noticeable brown color. Perfect for cute/young brown eyed characters.
Comfort: 6/10 
I personally don't find the Super Pinky series comfortable because of the big size. I also constantly feel that there is something in the eyes. Even in the long run, annoying.
Design: 5/10
I find Super Pinky lenses having a natural and a clear pattern. Like it.
Enlargement: 9/10
I think I have rather small eyes so these look alien on me, 'kay? 
Naturalness: 2/10 
I guess it's not very natural looking when my mom freaked out when she saw me with these on.... *cough*
Opacity: 8/10
Cover the natural color greatly.

Skecon 2 Cosplay Plans

THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS MAJOR TALES OF SYMPHONIA SPOILERS. IF YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETED THE GAME/READ THE MANGA/SEEN THE ANIMATION, THEN DON'T READ/SCROLL THIS POST! DON'T CARE? SCROLL AHEAD!

For not so long ago I decided on my cosplay plans for Skecon this year. Skecon will be held during 5th-7th July in Skellefteå, Sweden.

Friday

Yamato "Matt" Ishida from Digimon Adventure.
Yeah, it's time for Yamato and Gabumon to see the spotlight again after being debuted in Tracon 7 last year! Moving on!

Saturday

Uryū Ishida from Bleach.
It's time to hit the cosplay competition scene for the first time and it will be with Ishida. We have to start somewhere don't we? So let's start with a small con. I can't wait ~

Sunday

Pre-Game!Kratos Aurion from Tales of Symphonia.
I'm a die-hard Kratos Aurion fan, go figure ~

I want to do all the official outfits and variations that Kratos has except the kimono one he has in the Japanese PS2 version of the game. I will also carry a Lloyd Irving plushie when walking around as this version of Kratos in the con, for a bigger chance to be recognized. C'mon obscure version is obscure. This version of Kratos is only seen in the manga and the anime.

That's all, see ya!
