Coloured contact lenses are likely to be even more popular in 2011 than 2010, when they experienced a boom in popularity, it has been claimed.
Last year, there was a huge rise in demand for coloured contact lenses at Halloween, largely due to the popularity of the Twilight books and films, which have popularised the vampire and werewolf looks.
People looking to go all-out and make their costume as realistic as possible were attempting to emulate stars such as Robert Patterson by investing in red contact lenses which could give their eyes a vampiric glow, said Ace Fancy Dress, which reported a huge rise in demand in 2010.
As a result, the company is expecting the demand for coloured contact lenses to increase further this year, particularly as 2011 has seen the release of another Harry Potter movie, with plenty of mythical creatures ripe for emulating.
Toby Spoerer, director of Ace Fancy Dress, said that the most difficult option for many people is going to be choosing which contact lenses to buy, as suppliers are now offering so many different colours and styles.
He noted that it is easy to find an online contact lens supplier which can provide safe contact lenses but people may encounter difficulty in choosing from the huge range of special lenses they have in stock.
However, when buying coloured contact lenses online whether for Halloween, a party or simply to look different it is always advisable to seek out a reputable contact lens supplier.
