It's ok to take a break from cosplay!

There are always things we love to do, and I know a lot of us live for cosplay and the creation aspect of making all the things.  I just want you to know, that yes, it's ok to take a break! Take care of your priorities!

So you’re interested in contact lenses for your cosplay?

As cosplayers, we like to add those little touches to our ensemble to bring us one step closer to bringing our characters to life. One of those little touches is getting contact lenses to change our eye color, make a bigger pop of color, and/or enlarge the eyes. So what do you need to do? Some cosplayers already have contact lenses and wear glasses to correct their vision, so they have had these experiences prior. This article is aimed more toward those who do not wear corrective eyewear and who want contacts for cosmetic reasons.

The meaning of cosplay has changed considerably in the last decade, but let me try to explain how I see it. Mind you, please consider this my opinion of the evolution of the definition of cosplay and not a definitive one. Cosplay has a broad degree of meanings depending on the person asked.
