Back when I cosplayed Ibuki I promised to make a review of the orange contacts that I wore for him and well, it has been quite a while so I figured it's about time I do it now.
I spent quite some time looking for yellow/orange lenses and finally decided to settle on the Orange Werewolf lenses, made by the Princess Pinky brand. These were my first obviously costume-y lenses and I kind of saw it coming that they would be very bright and opaque. They were. Then again, it's what I wanted!
All photos –except the first one with the contact lenses in solution– are taken in bathroom light by me. There is no color filters and that's to show how the lenses really look!

|It's super easy to tell which way you are supposed to put|
them in – the wrong side is considerably lighter!
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Water content: 38%
Life span: 1 year (I recommend 6 months)
I like the design on these, they are mostly orange with a yellow circle closest to the pupil hole and soft spike-y black outer rims. They should be enlarging –14.5mm diameter– but I have a hard time telling if there's any difference at all. xD Very slight size difference and I actually like it like this.
|With just one lens in.|
|Both lenses in.|
I think they look really badass; I would consider wearing them out in town just to have people do double takes and/or freak out. :'D Especially with some fitting clothing.
And lastly I of course have the from-a-distance photos!Then again, I really love wolves. <3 I kind of wish I had more cosplays to wear with them than just Ibuki but I think these could look very cool for Inuyasha as well, for example.
Bold in-your-face color that's very noticeable from a distance.
Solid simple design that looks like a wolf's eye. It's cool.
Currently the most opaque lenses I own. My real eye color is completely blocked out!
Doesn't seem to enlarge that much.
Surprisingly comfortable for being more "crazy" contacts. Only minor problem is orange corners in my vision if I move my eyes and slightly blurred vision in insufficient light.
Good luck getting someone to believe these are your real eyes... xD
Howl and run, I'm out!
