I've encountered one before, so I know they exist. It's not a nice experience.

And to anyone who thinks I'm saying this for fun and giggles, I live for the truth. My way of life means staying true to God and to myself in all things. Once you become a true Christian, you turn away from a life of deceit and lies, living instead a life of righteousness and truth.

it's when someone get's a wack to the noggin and their eyes fill with blood or other liquid which gives the appearance of black eyes, it's pretty cool but I take it it'd be uncomfortable.

Black Eyed Kids were created by Texas reporter Brian Bendis in 1998 on Usenet's alt.folklore.ghost-stories.

It was creepypasta before there was creppypasta.

Nothing more than an internet scary story that became an urban legend, i.e. Slenderman, smiledog.jpg, etc.

Really? I didn't know that. I tried googling him but got nothing relevant. But that's pretty interesting. :)

Anyways, I honestly believe this to be nothing more than an urban legend.

Here are some full-eye black contact lenses people can buy. They are a bit expensive though.

It's Brian Bethel. I don't know why I wrote Bendis. :hmm:

Interesting...

With the person I saw, you could see the whites of his eyes but only just around the edges. To give an accurate description, It looked as though his pupils had grown over his iris', leaving the whites only partially visible, and most of his eyes black.

This person was the equivalent of what some refer to as a chav. And unless he stole the money and found a computer, I doubt he could've afforded state-of-the-art contact lenses.

Do they ship them oversea's?

And if so, why did he choose to wear them every single time he went outside?

How long do contact lenses last before you need a new pair?

If these are around £200-300 per contact, he'd need several hundred pound for the 7 or so times I saw him. He'd have to rob a bank just to afford it.

Not to mention, they're not sold in England. Not 'Hollywood-grade' contacts.

Peace and take care.

Edit: Typo.

He looks happy, which suggests he's living a good life. ^^

However, you can clearly see that your child doesn't have whole black eyes. The shading helps cover them abit.

I saw this black eyed person in broad daylight several times, only seeing him indoors twice. I saw him twice at my school but mostly outdoors. I think he'd been moved to my school for misbehaving at his previous school. I never saw him in class, just twice in the hallways.

My guess is he's a normal person with some kind of genetic defect, but he always brings feelings of fear or dread. It's like he just glances at you, and you feel threatened. Theres never been an instance where I haven't felt fear or loathing when he was out and about.

Edit: Spelt 'clearly' incorrectly.

I believe different entities exist from various realms (for want of a better word) that we aren't attuned to but the Black Eyed Kids concept, I just see very little value/significance in kids (or something disguised as a child?) with black eyes appearing, why would they have black eyes and nothing else of note in their repertoire? Seems like some quickly baked tale from around a campfire. That's not saying folks haven't encountered another kind of being before and attached it to this legend.

It's not just kids. I first got bullied by one in my early childhood, upto my teens Last time I saw him he was a teenager like me, so these "Beings" or "people" with black eyes grow up into adults just like you and me, presumably.

I often tend to relate him to the supernatural because his skin was very pale, and eyes deep black. It's really not pleasant to look at.

I have a difficult time deciding whether he's a supernatural entity or some bloke born with black eyes. Has there ever been a case of somebody being born with black eyes?

That's interesting Insaniac, many of the things that I have perused on BEK's were the urban legend/campfire like things that seem corny like someone just made them up on the spot, all they have to offer is they had black eyes and were creepy looking kids, it's rare to see anything that seems legitimate. It is insightful to read an experience that has more to it and suggests substance to th entity. I think their behaviour seems similar to Shadow people experiences, usually seem curious but not violent and have a disturbing feel to them. Maybe they are operate/exist similar to that.

It could be manifestations of energy created unwittingly by the observer or someone close by or could be visitors from elsewhere, purposefully or accidentally interacting here, it's easy to dismiss all the phenomena as sleep paralysis or hallucinations, obv I'm sure many instances can be explained that way but not 100%.. I can see how unnerving it would be to have such a thing appear next to you when there is no easy answer to attach to it.

Thank you, but I didn't see this person in my sleep. I'd see him just in the street from time to time, saw him once up where my work experience was and twice in school. His name was Kyle Inningworth. I didn't bother mentioning before because I didn't want to be in this thread long.


People keep bringing up black contact lenses, but I don't believe he owned any for the simple truth that nobody in York has sold them since.. ever. England isn't America. We don't have instant-access to what Americans do.

The other two reasons I don't believe he used contacts were:

1: He was what is known as a 'chav.' He wasn't some rich kid with a nice expensive house. I saw him 2 or 3 times riding around on a bicycle, for what it's worth. I only saw his supposed second house. It was a council house with the windows shielded with metal fencing/thin plates (council use them) and boarded up. A rougher part of Accomb.

This leads me to believe he didn't own a PC, meaning it's unlikely he bought contact lenses from over sea's. I don't think the guy even had a job. If he did, I picture him working in a market or some cruddy place. Anybody who was familiar with him knew he was too much trouble to get accepted into a decent job.

2: Those black contact lenses shown earlier in the links cost about £200-300 per contact. How long do they last, anyway? Because if they don't last very long, he'd have to buy several sets meaning he'd spend around... *rough guess* £48 hundred for several sets? He certainly didn't look like the kind of guy with that money, wearing the tracky bottoms/hoody.

I tend to believe he was an individual born with unusually pale skin and large pupils (to the point they covered his Iris') or... theres something paranormal about him. One or the other.

Maybe he's an Alien (Grey) in disguise?...


I saw this guy a total of about 7, maybe 8 times, and he always had black eyes, so I doubt he owned the state-of-the-art contacts people mention.
