If you're looking for some costume contact lenses to finish off your next Cosplay, or just some accessories that will help you make an entrance at the next big costume party, Animal Contacts might be exactly what you're looking for!
Whatever the occasion, a pair of animal contacts can take you from try-hard zero to fancy dress hero! The great thing about animal themed costumes is that they can actually be put together with very little planning and effort; they also usually cost much less than more expensive character costumes, so if you're looking for an impressive costume on a shoe-string budget, why not take a look at the following ideas to inspire your next outfit...
Cat Eye Contacts
Cat eye contacts are one of the most popular classic designs when it comes to Animal Contacts and it's not hard to see why! These eye-catching costume contacts come in a variety of colours and finishes but the one thing they have in common is the clever way the printed cat-inspired pupil sits directly over your own pupil, creating an authentic feline look without affecting your vision at all!
These contacts obviously look best when coupled with a cat outfit for Halloween, Cosplay conventions or costume parties, so here's what you can pair them with to finish your outfit:
- A leotard or onesie - Try getting hold of some furry fabric and attach with pins or stitching to create a cat tummy!
- A furry tail - make your own by cutting one leg off a pair of thick black tights and filling with any kind of stuffing (paper/cotton wool)
- Cat ears - They can usually be picked up at any fancy dress shop in either headband or hair clip form
- Cat face paint - Use black to create a cat nose and whiskers, just like you did when you were little!
Dragon Eye Contacts
If cat eye contacts are a little too tame on the scare scale for you, crank it up a notch in some Dragon Eye Contacts!
Featuring a similar oval pupil that covers your own pupil, again without affecting vision, these creepy contacts come in a selection of colours from burning flames of red and yellow to vivid glowing greens; whichever colours you prefer, you're sure to feel pretty fierce in a pair of dragon contact lenses!
To complete a seriously scary dragon costume, here are some tips to pair with your dragon eye contacts:
- Face Paint (and lots of it!) - for a truly authentic dragon or reptile look, you're gonna need to go green! So invest in some high quality, skin-friendly face paint and create an awesome scaly finish on that face!
- Spikes - You can create these at home by using corrugated card, paint and good old-fashioned paper mache!
- Flaming Hair - Incorporate your do into your dragon outfit using coloured dyes, gels, chalks or extensions!

Whatever the occasion, a pair of wolf contacts are an excellent twist on the more traditional cat eye contacts and are much more suitable if you're a dog person!
To get the best effect from your wolf eye contacts, pair them with the following items to create an authentic costume:
- Face Paint - You can either go all out and make your face brown or grey to give an all-over wolf look, or you can simply use a little black face paint to give yourself a wolf nose and whiskers!
- Ears - You can either pick up a pair of wolf ears from a fancy dress shop, or make your own by using an old headband and affixing a pair of triangular painted cardboard ears
- Tail - An old feather duster dyed brown can make a pretty convincing wolf tail if you don't want to splash out at a fancy dress shop!
- Claws - Get an authentic claw by picking up a set of cheap false nails, painting them black and cutting them into triangular claw shapes before sticking them on to your own nails
