Twilight Contact Lenses

Part of the Twilight Renaissance? Especially designed for cosplaying Twilighters, Fanpires, Twihards and Twerds, our range of Twilight contact lenses features pixel-accurate replicas of the hand-painted SFX contacts worn by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and others whilst filming live-action sequences for the Twilight Saga. Based on the bestselling novels by Stephenie Meyer, the contacts were used as a means of altering their eye colours to match the descriptions for the eyes of their respective characters, which are mostly topaz, red, brown, or black.

Incorporating Twilight (2008), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010), and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) and Part 2 (2012), the films have collectively grossed an eye-watering $3.4 billion at the box office. Like the novels, which sold to the tune of circa 100 million copies, they tell the firsthand tale of teenager Bella Swan who moves to Forks, Washington to live her father, and subsequently falls in love with telepathic vampire Edward Cullen. Later forming a relationship with Cullen, she ends up in a love triangle with Jacob Black, a therianthrope with the ability to shape-shift into a wolf. After marrying Cullen, Bella becomes pregnant, but when she almost dies giving birth, is saved by Cullen who transitions her into a vampire.

Having amassed a huge and loyal global fanbase that counts celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Adam Lambert among it, the Twilight Saga gave birth to ‘Twilight fever’. Resulting in it becoming a popular cosplay and Halloween theme in which fans create costumes, apply pale skin toned makeup, and wear replica Twilight contacts on mass, it even has an official fan convention called Forever Twilight which takes place annually in the franchise’s spiritual home of Forks, Washington. On top of that there are countless fan clubs such as Twi-Dads which was set up by American comic Kevin James, and even cosplaying troops such as the Olympic Coven who act out scenes from the films at conventions and various other fan events.

Developed with the fan movement in mind, our extensive range of Twilight coloured contacts includes movie-accurate replicas for characters from all eight covens, Olympic, Volturi, Denali, Egyptian, Amazon, Irish, Mexican, and Romanian. For example, our Volturi contacts replicate the contacts worn by Michael Sheen as Volturi leader Aro, as well as other cast members who played Caius, Marcus, Sulpicia, and Athenodora. Meanwhile, our New Moon contacts replicate the golden yellow contacts Robert Pattinson wore in his role as Edward Cullen, which makes them suitable for cosplaying Carlisle, Esme and other Cullens too. Then there’s our Breaking Dawn contacts which are an exact replica of those worn by Kristen Stewart as Bella following her vampire transformation, our self-titled Bella contacts for her depiction with golden yellow eyes, and brown contacts to replicate her human eyes. Of course, many of the vampirian characters (Including Edward when he first meets Bella) are at times portrayed with oynx or pure black eyes during periods of extreme huger, and these can be replicated with a pair of our blackout contacts.

Vampires aside, our range of Twilight contact lenses also incorporates contacts that replicate the eyes of the franchise’s shape-shifting packs, including the Uley pack and Black pack. This includes our New Generation contacts which have been designed to accurately replicate the dark brown contacts worn by Taylor Lautner in character as Jacob Black. However, they are also suitable for use in replicating the brow eyes of Sam Uley, Collin Littlesea, and others too.

What do the different eye colours mean in Twilight?

Just like Meyer’s novels, the Twilight Saga depicts vampirian characters with either topaz, red or black eyes. However, the exact colour is determined by factors such as age, diet and hunger. For example, a diet of human blood causes a vampire’s eyes to turn blood red which can be seen in the eyes of Aro, Laurent, and others. Meanwhile, an animal blood or so-called ‘vegetarian’ diet causes them to turn a topaz-like colour, also described as amber or golden yellow, which can be seen in the eyes of Edward Cullen and family. However, regardless of their regular eye colour, a vampire’s eyes will darken with both age and/or hunger, getting progressively darker and eventually turning oynx or black. Meanwhile, again staying authentic to the novels, shape-shifters such as Jacob Black are depicted with dark brown eyes, while others have yellowish coloured eyes, although the reason for this isn’t known.

What contact lenses did they use in Twilight?

Cast members including Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have talked openly and extensively about wearing coloured contacts whilst filming the Twilight Saga. Whilst some live-action films use CGI to achieve inhuman eye transformations, red, topaz, brown, black, and golden yellow hand-painted special effects contacts were used in the production of all five live-action films from the Twilight Saga. Meanwhile, some cast members, including Michael Sheen, wore what he has described as ‘golf ball’ sized lenses. These were in fact full scleras which measure 22mm in diameter and are significantly bigger than regular coloured contacts.
