I’m okay. 

A capillary burst so my eye has blood in it, kinda like a nosebleed. I don’t literally see red and it’s not affecting my vision at all. I am clear to work at my job, which I do. 

However I now DO have the eye of Satan. I wish I still had my long hair so I could dress up like a metal head, corpse paint myself then do some very epic closeups.

Please note this is for educational purposes only! Please don't manipulate this. If you DO want to, please ask. OK to reference for drawing.

Is it so terrible that I want a capillary to burst so I can take some pictures while in a steampunk(ish) costume?
Anywho, great picture!

Yooouuu could just get contacts? :P 

Seriously speaking there's a variety of health risks that come with the capillary burst - for example it's advised not to use any blood thinners, so for the ladies that means no aspirin on your period. You can't lift anything heavy and you have to be careful to make sure pressure buildup in your head doesn't happen, otherwise the blood in your eye might reach dangerous amounts of nope. At this point docs will have to drain your eye (grosssss). 

However the draining the eye thing is pretty uncommon and not very likely to happen. So long as you're careful! :)

Very informative, but you know contacts cost money,
that's something most people don't have especially if
they pursue a career in art... :(

I'm not a cosplayer but I've seen some rather inventive forms of cosplay. I'm pretty sure whatever effect you're looking for, you can achieve on a small budget. 

It really depends on your cosplay though... You can always substitute contacts for, say, a bloody mask or something like that. Or goggles if it's steampunk.

Granted, but red eyes just look so damn creepy and great right?

Yes and no. It really depends on your perspective on what's aesthetically pleasing. 

For me this is not cool since 1) I don't like the attention and 2) becoming blind is one of my worst fears, so the fact that this happened in my ONE GOOD eye is sort of terrible news. You might have a different experience though. 

I've been at work and no one's noticed my blood eye unless I walked up to them and showed them. Bloody eyes can look cool but IMO it might not be worth the effort if people tend to look at your face as a whole rather than your eyes. 

You might experience/see things differently though! That's just my opinion.

I've seen that happen to a few friends, creepy as hell though.

This is the 3rd time it has happened to me, albeit the other times it happened to my other eye. It freaked me out big time the first time it happened!
