We all know that there are many, many costumes to choose from for Halloween, but did you know that there are even more accessories, props and special effects that you can add to your costume to give it that special edge you might be looking for?  From the littlest things like nail polish or earrings to the more embellished accessories such as realistic makeup or prosthetic flesh wounds. 

Every year a good friend of mine, Eva, throws the most extravagant costume party the weekend before Halloween.  She starts planning for the party months in advance so that nothing is left to chance.  Everything from the invite list to the decorations she does herself and loves every minute of it.  To me, the best part of the party is the anticipation of waiting to see what costume she’ll wear.  Of course, being the host, Eva always has the most elaborate costume of anyone at the party.  Last year she was “Cat Woman” (taken from the 2004 movie with Halle Berry).  Even though the movie didn’t get rave reviews, her costume definitely did!  However, it wasn’t so much the black leather cat suit that was unbelievable (although the men didn’t mind), but it was her “cat” eyes that made the costume stand out.  She accessorized her eyes by using these special effect contact lenses in green and black that gave her eyes a cat-like appearance.  It was amazing to see the transformation of her eyes when she put these contacts in!  It put the whole costume over-the-top.

If the idea of adding the perfect accessory of colored contacts to your costume appeals to you, than look no further.  Coastal Contacts makes these great special effect contacts and Halloween Express now offers them for sale online here: Halloween Contact Lenses.  Eva wore the “green reptile” contacts with her costume, but all of them are unbelievable.  They will absolutely, without a doubt give your costume that edge you’re looking for.  And believe me when I say, everyone will notice!
