Contacts for Ditto cosplay

Recommended Posts

So Ditto is my favorite pokemon of all time. Super relatable as someone who has had identity issues all her life.

 

SO I decided to do a tribute cosplay to that cute little blob whos existence has given me comfort for as long as I can remember.

 

Now I was thinking about going with either 16mm black contacts. or black sclera lenses. However I have astigmatism in both eyes. My eye doc said he'd prefer if i didn't wear any contacts at all, but if I must no longer than 8 hours.

 

I have a pair of 16.5mm lenses and they were perfectly fine until somehow makeup got underneath them. then I had to take them out because my eye turned all red due to irritation (that always happens to me)

 

so I read a little about sclera lenses and saw that they do cause some discomfort. I was wondering if someone could describe the feeling to me. i don't wanna dish out $70 and then never wear them.

 

also would all black sclera lenses even look right for ditto? he has these beady little eyes but no eye whites!

 

 

also what brand/store would be the best place to get sclera lenses?

 

thanks!

I feel like you might look demonish if you wear sclera lenses, but I get what you mean. Ditto does not have whites around his eyes. However, I wore a human gijinka umbreon cosplay and just got simple red colored contacts (u could see the whites of my eyes), but ppl still seemed to get that I was umbreon. I think you might be better off just getting all black circle lenses.

 

I generally shop at pinkyparadise.com for my colored lenses and they have astigmatism ones (yay!), but upon going to the website I noticed that as of this year they are not shipping to the US due to the strict laws. However, I was told that these two websites are also good to buy from:

Also agreeing that you'd probably look evil in plain black sclera lens xD Sclera lens are also really bad for your eyes and only meant to worn maybe 4 hours at a time, tops. They cover the majority of your eye, meaning oxygen and tears/wetness can't get in. If regular contacts seem to bother you, sclera will probably be a nightmare. I'd go for the regular black lens instead. (Disclaimer: I haven't worn sclera's myself but did a bunch of research on them when debated them for my own cosplay xD Decided they weren't worth it lol)
