The one advantage The Lord of the Rings’ elves has over all other characters is their exceptional vision, seeing clearly from miles away. They can see danger is approaching before any other and prevent an ambush from occurring. The elves are exceptional characters, not only can they see into the future and live forever, they are beautiful as well. So if you want to find out what it’s like to be an elf, why not steal their look?
Legolas - Orlando Bloom
He is the reason us girls kept watching the three hour long films and the reason we wanted to watch films like Kingdom of Heaven. However, Orlando Bloom is at his best in The Lord of the Rings as the elf Legolas. His blue eyes just make you melt, but did you know they’re fake?
Coloured contact lenses helped Orlando Bloom get into his character. This little trick is used all the time, not only on the big screen, but on the stage as well. It just goes to show how a subtle change can make all the difference. A pair of blue contact lenses is the ultimate accessory if you’re playing his character or you have seen the effects his eyes have on girls and want to see if it will work for you.
If you’re a fan of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and would like a bit of Orlando Bloom’s attention, why not steal his look? Okay, you may not want to adopt his long, flowing blonde hair, but those eyes are beautiful and the easiest part of Legolas’s look to imitate.
There is a fantastic range of blue contact lenses available at Eyesbright that are perfect for any Legolas fan. Whatever shade you’re looking for, you can find it here: from light hues to Cool Blue contact lenses. There are even aqua coloured lenses to try out.
Galadriel and Arwen – Cate Blanchett and Liv Tyler
The elf look can also work for girls; there are many female elves in The Lord of the Rings, but the main characters are Arwen played by Liv Tyler and Galadriel played by Cate Blanchett. With this you have the choice of being Galadriel and changing your eye colour to a dreamy blue or Arwen and changing your eye colour to a striking brown that will have hearts like Aragorn’s melting.
Throughout all of the films we’re introduced to some very head strong women and fantastic characters we want to imitate or dress as for a party. So next time you dress up, why not take a tip from the film professionals and get some coloured contact lenses to help you get into character?
