I have made a post about a couple pair of Arietta Project eyes not long ago, and after some thinking I decided to contact them to see if they would consider helping me make some custom eyes.
Below Taiga, tsun head in 24 mm eyes ^^/
me Taiga, they agreed to help me make them (at a cost of course ^^;), This post is not sponsored ^o^;! I’m just kinda crazy about Taiga ^^;;;
I also provided the image which I drew with reference to some images of Taiga Aisaka I searched online. In order to make sure I got the right size, based off my first order, I decided to order 22mm and 24 mm. Thankfully I did!
Here’s my honest review: Due to the hand made nature of the resin eyes, I noticed there is definitely slight differences per eye, but when the eyes are secured in the head, it doesn’t really matter. Also I think the surface is not entirely smooth – if you touch the surface of the with your fingers you can feel it? But the eyes are glossy enough that the “bumps” doesn’t show? I really like the white of the eyes, they are very bright and white, and the low dome makes the decal inside show well. Overall I am pleased with the eyes and hope Arietta project continue their good work. ^^/
Note, tsundere explained on Wikipedia for those who are not familiar. and also Yandere…
Below Taiga is wearing the 22 mm in the tsun head, I think it’s a little small, and makes her look extra angry when showing so much eye whites ^o^;
Thankfully 24 mm looks much better! :)
Favorite head/eyes combi definitely tsun + 24 mm ^o^!
Then I tried the 22 mm eyes on Taiga’s dere head and liked it much better too! ^^
Another shot of the 22mm on dere head.
I also tried the 24mm eyes on dere head, but… I think it gives Taiga a Yandere feel…. (don’t hurt me Taiga!)
Took Taiga out to a micro mini quick and dirty meet with Archangeli ^o^
I think I might have taken some photos on my camera too ^^; will post or add them later ^^/
