Making your own dragon costume can be a chore. However, with UV contacts available in yellow, red, and even green dragon eye, you can add a spooky look to complete your costume.


Whether you are a black cat, sexy cat, leopard, or even lion, add a pair of glow in the dark yellow, green or white cat eyes. These help you stand out in the crowd by adding a more realistic look.


Red eyes add an evil effect without a costume, but adding glowing red eyes to a ghoul costume can take you from nice to wow. Roaming through the halls of a haunted house, others won't be able to tell who's getting paid.

A witch costume can take on multiple forms. Maybe you want to go Wicked Witch of the West by adding some glow in the dark green contacts. However, if you want to get truly evil, try some red demon eyes or even dragon eyes. Maybe you just want to add your own form of evil by adding some ali white contacts to your white witch costume.
