Lady Gaga wore them in one of her music videos. Scared me to death (she’s terrifying enough as it is).
I think they can be fun but they’re too weird for your wedding day. They’re meant to give you the doll-like anime look that Japanese cartoons have instead of something more natural.
Plus they can cause serious damage to your eyes if you wear them for too long

Interesting…I’ve seen these before but never knew what they were called. I read that they are a hit in Asian countries because they make you look like a “doll.”
Though, I’ll admit that I’m intrigued, it would really depend on your face shape and eye size to begin with…but I want to look like myself for my wedding day and pictures…
I think they would be cool if you plan on doing some boudoir photo shoots for your Fiance though!

@MissFireFlower: I think they look good for individual pictures, but I feel like they might look weird if you’re taking lots of pictures next to your husband. He’ll have normal size irises and yours will be huge.

@MissFireFlower: I definitely do not like those. They just look creepy wierd to me.

.. you guys know these are illegal in many countries because they’re not fitted to your eyes and can cause scratched corneas, permanent blindness.. etc?

hmm I think they’d be neat done properly….not too altering, the first pic….do not like. However the one where the iris’ are changed to contrast things looks nice. I wonder do you wear contacts regularly tho? could spell disaster if you are tearing up, and I’d show yoru fiance first, see what he thinks!
It’s one of those things that I haven’t normalized yet, I know we do a bunch of ridiculous things to change our appearance, but the look is catching me a bit off guard.
I say do what YOU like !

I think they’re creepy personally. I have seen them before but only on the anime “doll” type looking women.

Would you be buying these with a prescription and doctor’s approval? If not, you may want to read this article. There are dangers to non-prescription contact lenses, not to mention it’s illegal to sell contact lenses without a prescription. If you do have an ophthalmologist’s ok with this, feel free to ignore, just wanted to warn you of the potential hazards 🙂
ETA: the illegality I’m talking about is in the US, I can’t speak for elsewhere but of course the safety concerns would be the same.

I bought some! I went for the ones closest to my natural eye color and tried not to go too large. My makeup look is all about the eyes, I tried it with and without the lenses and thought it looked a lot better with them in.
I love the dolly look, like VenusAngelic. So cute!

Exactly what i was thinking. Individual pics would look fine but next to anyone else you could possibly look like a cartoon!

Not a fan of people looking like anime characters. Also can’t.imagine it’s good for your eyes. Personally, it’s weird.

Like other posters, I would be more concerned about possible damage caused by ill-fitting lenses.

If you want dilated pupils, just go see an opthamologist 😉
If I wore those, it would freak my fiance out! He’s weird about eyes.

Be very careful with cosmetic lenses, and make sure you order the correct size for your eye. If you have a size that’s not correct, you can seriously damage your eyes (I’ve heard some horror stories unfortunately.) Good luck!
