Oh man so I had just come home from an extremely enjoyable but very tiring day and I was just about ready to fall into bed when I spot a parcel waiting for me.
Gasp! ADVENTURE TIME merch from Hatah Hatah!! My friends and I were stopped in our tracks by their Finn hat at the con last weekend and we ended up kind of collectively staring at their booth and puking rainbows. We were all like MOTHER OF WANT WE MUST HAVE ALL THE THINGS
So after that I ordered the Finn pocket shirt and I got them today then I saw these hats and AAAAAAA brb wearing these everywhere
Adventure Time with Jin and Jake
(With the Glasses of Nerdicon)
Everything is SLAMACOW and comfortably squishy! If you like them, you can check out Hatah Hatah at their Facebook page
Alice and Rabbit's Shop has a new line called Crystal Max Lenses. I think this is my favorite, alongside the Cosplay Lens Series. I've got almost all the colors (because they are so good hahah) but for today I'll be featuring them in Brown, Green and Red.
Important thing to note for people like me: THEY'RE AVAILABLE IN PRESCRIPTION! I'm really happy these come graded, so apart from looking great they give me the gift of sight! (There are non-prescription ones as well for you lucky people with perfect vision, hahah)
I apologize for the watermarks! Some lens stores have stolen my photos in the past so I'm just trying not to let that happen so much. It's not fair for their buyers too if they're being deceived by my photos which don't show the other stores' products.
This is how the lenses look when not worn.
Crystal Max Lenses in Brown. They're really more of a golden hazel than a dark chocolate brown, and I like them this way.
They're an excellent color for characters with golden eyes like Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist), Alto Saotome (Macross Frontier), or Yoko Littner (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann). My friends and I used to struggle with lens color choices for these characters because their eyes weren't just brown, but they weren't yellow either. Now we've got these!
Here's a reeeeeally close look at the lens design. It lets some of the natural eye color show through. My natural eye color is that very dark brown, practically black color that shows through at the center. The lenses are larger than the size of my normal pupil so it creates a glowing halo effect (that lighter colored crescent) at the bottom.
Makes me wonder how these lenses would look on light-colored eyes. If you have light eyes and have similar lenses, I'd love to see!
This is how they look when I stood in front of a large window. They look much brighter with more light.
And here's the overall effect on a face. Well, my face. (My hair was not behaving so I stuck on my wolf hat. It helped a little, hahah.)
Next up is Crystal Max in Green. In contrast with the Green Cosplay Lens [link] which was a leafy emerald green, this is more of a blue-green/teal/turquose shade. It kind of makes me think of Miku Hatsune, hahah.
In terms of how vivid it is, I think they show up even brighter than the hazel lenses I showed above.
They also make a subtle halo effect on the bottom.
And now, Crystal Max in Red. These are AMAZING. These are the most photogenic red lenses I've worn. The glowing halo effect on these is the most striking!
Extreme closeup that shows the lens pattern, and how my natural eye color peeks through.
Characters that these lenses could work for: Sebastian Michaelis (Kuroshitsuji), Rei Ayanami (Neon Genesis Evangelion), Brera Sterne (Macross Frontier)
Here's how they look from a moderate distance. They're not garishly bright and fake-looking as some red lenses tend to be. You could get away with wearing these on an everyday basis, I think hahah. It's the sort of color that'll make people look twice and think you're a vampire.
Speaking of vampires
wonderfully pigmented lenses with eye enlarging effect
