There’s no denying that over the years the Witcher franchise has gained vast popularity. This is mainly due to the creative and intriguing world crafted by author Andrzej Sapkowski as well as the interactive and live-action series created to bring the Witcher universe to life.
In an interview with Netflix’s own Geralt of Rivia after filming the first series, Henry Cavill spoke about the complications that can come from wearing contact lenses. His interview explained the effects of wearing lenses for longer than their recommended duration which he experienced due to over-usage on set. Luckily, if you’re concerned about using your coloured contacts you can find a catalogue of information on our care guides page. Including Contact Lenses Safety, Contact Lens Storage and How To Insert And Remove Your Contact Lenses.
When describing cosplay contact lenses for a Witcher costume, there are a variety of different options to choose from. The novels, video games and live-action series can differ slightly so there are a few options available if you’re looking to try a pair of contact lenses for a Witcher cosplay.
If you are looking to create a Witcher cosplay with a pair of costume contact lenses, perhaps the most iconic character to choose is Geralt. Whether you want to take the look directly from the source material or show off the ambitious eyes that are depicted throughout the show, we have plenty of options to choose from.
Within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game Geralt is given many different appearances; however one of his most distinct and iconic features throughout this series is his bold cat-like eyes. Geralt is essentially a mutant, and his vibrant yellow, vertical-slit pupils personify this. Luckily, if you’re looking to cosplay this classic look of the character we have a variety of regular and UV cat eye contact lenses to perfectly complete this costume. View the Cat Eye Contact Lenses section here.
Unlike the cat eyes that are seen within the Witcher video games, Henry Cavill’s appearance in Netflix’s adaptation shows him using orange contact lenses with regular pupils. Not only is this closer to the source material provided in the novels, but it also provides the White Wolf with a distinct appearance. View our cosplay contact lenses here.
If you’ve watched the first episode of The Witcher on Netflix, you may be curious as to why Geralt can be seen with pure black eyes. As mentioned, Geralt is a mutant which allows him to withstand Witcher potions or poisons that can improve his combat ability at the cost of toxicity. Within the novel, it is explained that “the face takes on the color of chalk, and the pupils fill the entire iris.”(The Last Wish, Page 29), which is exactly what happens during his first battle with a Kikimora.
In this scene, we can see Geralt with full black contact lenses that cover both the iris and pupil. See our full range of black contact lenses here.
Our incredible affiliates have been recreating The Witcher’s orange eyes which are caused by the Trial of the Grasses – the process that prospective Witchers must undergo to give them the mutations of a full Witcher.
@fx_freak has opted for classic Orange Werewolf Coloured Contact Lenses which draw on the animalistic nature of the Witcher’s eyes. He is often depicted with cat eyes in the video games but if you prefer the look of a round pupil then these lenses are a great option and are closer to the style that Henry Cavill wears.
@snarkyjaycosplay has chosen Yellow Coloured Contacts for this full Geralt cosplay. This detailed outfit includes props and a wig. To complete the ensemble, the yellow contact lenses transform Jay from human to Witcher.
Throughout the Witcher franchise, Yennefer of Vengerberg is a mage with a vibrant violet eye colour. The distinct characteristic of purple eyes is almost completely unique to this powerful character and can be replicated with a pair of our coloured contact lenses with ease.
For Yennefer contact lenses for cosplay, we would recommend a pair from our purple cosmetic contact lenses for their intense colour and natural style depicted in the show. See our violet contact lenses here.
Within the Witcher franchise, Ciri is the surrogate daughter of Geralt and can be seen with a vibrant eye colour. Although it is unknown whether her vibrant eye colour is due to her hidden power, she can be seen with either green or blue eyes.
