Jeepers creepers: Vampire-inspired contact lenses

Blearily eyed from waking up early to stand in line for a midnight Black Friday opening? Cross-eyed from scouring dozens of newspaper circulars for coupons?

Or maybe you’re simply feeling like a vampire, in particular part of the Cullen clan of the “Twilight” film sagas?

While some lined up last weekend for doorbusters, millions of Twihards (as film’s fanatical fans refer to themselves) lined up to see “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1” which raked in some $62.3 million in the five days since Thanksgiving.

To answer the call (shriek?) of fans who love all living (or dead) to do with vampires,, a leading e-tailer of contact lenses and glasses, is offering special effect contact lenses.

“Who wouldn’t want to look like they’re right out of Stephanie Meyer’s vamp-infested world?” ask the folks at Coastal. “As any Twihard will tell you, these vamps possess supernatural beauty: flawless pale skin that sparkles in the sunlight, the texture and feel of marble, and eyes­­ that could stop any human right where they stand.”

The terrifying contact lenses start at retails of $27.99 and up at
