This year, I want to be a blizzard.  (a snowstorm, not an icecream treat.)  I'm still not entirely sure how I'm going to do it, but I've decided there will be lots of makeup, spray in hair colour (I'm a brunette... NOT going platinum...), lots of flowy clothing, and hopefully light blue coloured contacts.  I've heard that the Crazy Lens ones are the best/cheapest, but has anyone had any experiences either way with them?  Also, where did you get them?  I've been looking online, and everything is either in pounds (I'm in Canada and would liek minimal shipping) or listed on pretty sketchy looking websites.

Thoughts?

I know you can usually order them through an optemetrist, but I'm not sure how much it would cost you, I forget how much mine were, not too bad though Smiley

It wouldn't look quite as cool, but you could also just wear ski goggles.  I decorated mine in past years to match my ski jacket.  I just used nail polish and it stayed on great, so for your application you could easily paint them to look windswept.  They'd be a lot more comfortable than contacts too.

I'm in Canada too and what you might want to do is call up local optometrists or glasses seller and tell them that you are interested in trying contacts. Some places will give you a free trial pair-- I know walmart gave me a bunch of different kinds to try when I was looking for new prescription contacts. You might be able to get a really pale blue.

Now, I've worn contacts for more than ten years now, and I tried coloured contacts and was really put off. First thing is that you can see the design/colour in your peripheral vision, and that takes a lot of getting used to. CooperVision Expressions is one you can look into-- hey have two really nice blues and I've been using their products for years without any problems.

My boyfriends been looking for contacts for Halloween and run into a few good websites.  Try http://extremesfx.com/default.aspx they're in the state of Georgia and ship to Canada.  The contacts are cheap and theres quite the variety.
