Animetic eyes

Bought some blue animetic eyes from volks store during our trip last year and decided to change my first dollfie dream — Mirai (Yukino)’s eyes :D looks like I didn’t aligned it properly lol!

Since Mirai’s twin Mirin has blue eyes, I thought perhaps Mirai wants to get some blue eyes eventually, I was eyeing the Animetic Eyes / I Type / Dark Blue (RURI-KON) when it was just released but never got a chance to get it ^^;

I think this pair of eyes make Mirai look a lot more mature doesn’t it?

Sorry I haven’t had a chance to catch up with sewing for a while, I have some ideas and some work to finish up, hope to do that soon and start some sewing again!

The good thing is I tidied up the sewing room a bit before I took photos of Mirai :P

Only caught the last bit of natural light of the rare  beautiful winter day we were having ^^;

Below are a few photos of Mirai Yukino’s original look :3 I named her Mirai, after Danny Choo’s mascot Mirai Suegana. She reached me on 31 December 2008, :D has since received a Dynamite body, a final wig from Jpopdolls after trying many different wigs and now new eyes ^o^ I think I have nailed her final look :)

    I love those eyes, it’s the pair of eyes my Nanoha is currently sporting. What I like about them though is that unlike some of the other colors in the same series they don’t have that heavy glowy effect.

    It’s nice to hear you nailed down Mirai’s look and feel, I owned Nanoha for 2 years and I have yet to reach that point with her.

      Oh yes :D I actually bought a pair one size up, thinking of either Himitsu or Nyanko, but at the moment kinda like how they look so far so won’t do it anytime soon :) It took me years to finally nailed Mirai’s final look so take your time XD

    Those eyes are lovely ^_^ I have a pair in one of my girls, and they are my favorite. Something about the color photographs really well- and I think your Mirai is very suited for them! You should keep them on her :)

      Oh yes! ^o^ so glad I was able to find them when in Japan, made up for not being able to locate any of the new hands and head :P I like that we can see detail like colours etc, compared to some of the other eye designs :D

    Those eyes look good on her! I think Yukino is very versatile, almost all eye color looks good :) When I visited Volks in Akiba, the one they had there had the same shiny eyes as Nia but in brown, also looks nice, this helped me to explain to the girls there which eyes I wanted for Nia, hehe as they had them in a different cabinet than the Volks ones. :)

      Thank you! hehe It’s nice to be able to see the goods in person before buying, and no extra shipping or custom taxes to pay :P that’s what I enjoy the most about visiting Japan :) Nice that you were able to ask for help ^o^!
