These black contacts are a simple and effective way to have the creepiest Halloween costume at any party.

Some Halloween enthusiasts like to have elaborate, larger-than-life costumes that take months to prepare. But for those who set stock in the maxim "less is more," these black contacts are perfect. Also known as sclera contacts, the lenses cover the whole eye, obliterating the iris and sclera (white part of the eye) to achieve an eerie blackout effect.

In the past decade, pop culture has experienced a crimson tidal wave of vampires -- see the Twilight series, True Blood and Vampire Diaries. This year has been the year of the zombie -- with the popularity of The Walking Dead, its spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead and other shows and films that have followed in the wake of its success, like iZombie and Life After Beth. These black contacts will be ideal for zombie costumes this Halloween -- they have the effect of making the wearer look decidedly undead.
