Sorry for being so long between posts. There’s a good reason, as Justine explains here, we’ve been hiding out at an undisclosed location to finish our next books. In fact, the only reason I’m taking a break is because Leviathan just crossed the 75K word mark!
Pause for woot.
And no sooner do I turn to the internets for relaxation, and what do I see on BoingBoing but manga contact lenses! They’re so totally like the manga heads in Extras that I had to interrupt my fierce writing schedule to show you:
Okay, my manga heads probably aren’t that scary. But still, I’m glad someone’s trying already. And yes, these are a real product:
Read more about them here at Inventor Spot.
I will be posting more soon . . . promise

lol this looks sooooo wroed lol she looka lika grudge girl!!!!!! lol omg
She reminds me of those creepy act-cute *coughbimboscough* I see around town. Totally creepy-making.
Oh my gosh! That is so cool. I love Frizz and Aya together. I could picture specials, pretties, crumblies, and flash tatoos, but I could never picture manga heads. Thanks for the image, scott-la. And I beg of you, WRITE A FIFTH BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am rereading the series for only the second time, but pretty soon it’s going to get boring. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I promise I will never get bored of it, scott-la.
They are so icy. I definetly want some.
the manga heads ARE scary!!!!!!!!
Can you say BUBBLY? Those are awesome, Scott-la. A pair of red, violet, or black ones would look so amazing on me.
Those are so bubbly! Where do they make those? Dothey sell those in Canada?
WOW! I would love to have a pair of those. They sorta remind me of puppy dog eyes.
…I actually really like those. Wonder if they come in prescription… *frantic investigation*
Don’t see why they’re creepy, really. I mean, some of the expressions in the ads are creepy, a little bit (read as: I am going to use them as models for some of my characters, because I can never manage to get them to look insane enough) but the contacts themselves are just insanely cool!
i really actually love the look of those manga contacts, i would deffinitly wear them, all the time. i just read bogus to bubbly yesterday, i kow a little late but whatever, and i didnt really understand what a manga head really was..:x because i alwasy referred to them as like…anime drawings with the big eyes and spiky-floating-ish hair…oh well. i use ‘manga heads’ now. i like it better. but to the contacts i so love them they’re so pretty. &+ so is the model girl above wearing them, i also like her hair (: oops! long comment. but i LOVE THE CONTACTS!
:)) I love these books… i found somehting that looks like what I think the manga heads would look like… it is a picture my fried took… kinda scary to me…
its not HUGE like those pictures but more normal looking… but i love the eyes… so pretty!!! but i would freak if i saw someone like that at school….
wish i could show you all the picture of her… she’s a bit weird though… :DDD
Every time i come here I am not dissapointed, nice post
Haha ^^ nice, is there a section to follow the RSS feed
That is really quite scary.
I love manga, but the only books i normally read other than them are by scott ^-^, when i first read extras i thought WOOAAH big eyes like in mangas, but some have a bit smaller just big pupils and iris w/e.
Im a bit reassured now. Thinking of Frizz Mizuno, what a japanese last name (o.O) fufu, but now my hearts all doki doki.
Seriously Im hooked on Scott’s books.
Why does everyone freak out at these? I think they make her look pretty. Of course sacrificing the ability to blink may be a factor.
i think that they make her look VERY scary!
Bua ha ha ha !
I actually OWN a few pairs of these kinds of lenses.
Started off with celebrities, and then regular peopel started wearing them too.
I gaurantee you that if you went to a heavily Asian populated area at least 1 out of every 7 girls would be wearing them.
I try not to wear them more then 3 times a week, since they block some airflow to your eyes.
That girl is an Asian net idol, there’s tons in Korea, and Japan.
Most of them photoshop but fakers get caught easily.
my gosh I loooooove CELL! Such a good book though not very PEEPSish. But it is gory. So anyone who is reading this who isnâ€™t Haddy-la should read it.
i think this picture pretty scary it looks just like real
and then see thad face!
… PS: i am a girl
wow…i thought tht it wuz michelle phan..
Try searching “popular ulzzang;” ulzzang means “best face” in Korean. Ulzzangs, in my opinion, personify the manga-head aura… there are both guys and girls who utilize a combination of circle lenses, makeup, some photoshop, and good genes. I think they’re attractive, some don’t.
