Special Contacts Let You Look Emo, Even When You're Not

Special Contacts Let You Look Emo, Even When You're Not

On the off chance that anime contact lenses aren't avant-garde enough for you, this should fit the bill. Dutch designer Eric Klarenbeek has created contacts that give the appearance of crying. The crystal "tears" are attached to the contact by a thin wire, and due to interest from Klarenbeek's prototype, you'll soon be able to purchase a pair for about $270.

"You can't feel the wire dangling, it doesn't affect your sight and the lens moves along gently with your eyeball, even while blinking," Klarenbeek says. "If someone tugs on the wire while you are wearing it the lens will just fall out — or at the very worst the wire might break."

those are so weird and pointless!I could see them being used in a fashion shoot, but even then, better tears can be found. and I know that at least I don't want stuff dangling from my eyeball

Glue stones on your face and be done!!! Seriously, think of how annoying that no-see-um hair or fuzz that gets in your eyelashes is...and people want to do this intentionally?

Cool yes, but what is the point? I guess photo shoots maybe... But I would not fork out over $200 for contacts just to look like I was crying. I think I would naturally cry and never stop if I actually paid that much for something so useless.

I agree with what seems to be the general consensus about these: they are gross and unnecessary. But the REALLY ridiculous part is that they are $270! WHAT A WASTE!!!!!!!

This is really weird, frivolous, and potentially dangerous. I feel like having something dangling from your eye is just asking for bad news.

this is one of the dumbest things.. and biggest waste of money i have seen in a long time.... why? it doesn't even look like she's crying.. especially since the "tear" stays in the same location....
