Lens Review – GBT Violet

PinkyParadise kindly sponsored me a pair of lenses!

I chose G&G GBT Violet for my upcoming Daenerys Targaryen costume.

I’ve tried GBT’s in Green before, and thought the effect would work well for Daenerys.  While these aren’t the best choice for Anime cosplay, they work wonderfully for Dany, whose eyes are a bit more realistic-looking (blue in the TV series, violet in the books).

Color: 8/10 – not opaque, and not super vibrant.  These will blend in with your natural eye color while giving a noticeable change.  Violet shows up better than Green, in my experience.

Enlargement: 6/10 – These enlarge maybe a tiiiiny bit (which is what I was going for).  Diameter is listed as 14.5 – seems more like 14 or 14.2, which is standard for non-circle lenses.  Not your lenses if you want Huge Ugguu Anime Eyes.

Comfort: 10/10 – VERY comfortable.  I couldn’t feel them after putting them in, and the smaller size makes them easy to put on/take out.

PinkyParadise is probably my favorite place to order lenses from due to their huge selection and good service!  Shipping took a few weeks, but that is about the same for any overseas lens sellers.
