So in my last installment, I made mention of the fact that I didn't get my new zombie contact lenses in time for the Midwest Haunters Convention Masquerade Ball. They did in fact show up the day that I was already at the convention. Oh well, at least they showed up and I finally had a chance to pop them in to see how they looked.
I ended up ordering the Anakin Sith lenses from Demon Eyez. I wanted to go with more of a "Walking Dead" style zombie look, so I ordered a set that had more of an "infected" look as opposed to the traditional "whiteout" style (which I still have as a backup set).
They did take about 2 weeks to show up, but I didn't realize that they shipped from jolly old England. And even though they did take a while, I'm still really pleased with them. Very vibrant colors and cheaper than I've seen anywhere else. With a little bit of makeup, they will draw a lot of attention when they make their public debut at an upcoming zombie walk...
I even had a minute to photoshop a quick mockup of what the original zombie costume should have looked like with the new lenses. With a few color tweaks, this will be a big upgrade for the 2013 haunt season.
