Can you spot the differences? :P Luckily today is a bright and sunny day for Winter, good for pictures :3

I have always preferred to have Aki to have lighter pair of eyes, preferably something which look like Rina Ogata’s so when I saw that Parabox has released some new 20mm anime eyes (found out thru flickr), even tho they are different, I had to get some to try ^^;

The 2 pairs of small items arrived in a rather large box, well packed with packing peanuts and bubble wrap ^^;;

Closer look at the purple eye (sorry slightly blurry photo ^^;)

While removing the bottom part with the “stem”, accidentally broke one of them (oops) luckily the important parts are ok ^^;

After removing Aki’s default eyes, I took a quick picture to document and compare :)

Top left is: EY-ABEBR-20 /20mm brown Anime eyes
Bottom left is Yuki’s default grey/blue eyes, size seems to be slightly bigger than 20mm, only comes with White Album Yuki Morikawa, not available for regular sale.
Right pair is:  Animetic Eyes / F Type / Bright Blue (RURI) 24 mm (Himitsu DD04 head is wearing it)

So since Mirin (DDH03) custom head, and Himitsu(DDH04) custom head does not have their eyes got glued into their heads, I decided to let them try the eyes first :3

Mirin (DDH03)… Not so sure, I think I prefer her in the Animetic eyes /F type by volks, it was hard to position her eyes, as with the whites showing she can either look cross eyed or other way ^^; I put her blue eyes back after I took photos…

Himitsu (DDH04) has rather large eyeholes so these showed a lot of eyewhites, but surprisingly I don’t mind it as much, I thought she looks cute and kinda innocent, with a little mischief!

With Aki, I had to first remove her eyes, a tutorial link on volks shows one method. I borrowed a little bit of thinner from husband’s gunpla usage, used a tooth pick to guide tiny bit of thinner between the dried hot glue holding Aki’s eyes in place. Then carefully/firmly push the eye in and removed it.

Ultima-i.com has some pictures here.

Avan also has a link on how he did it here. And thank you for everyone who pointed out the links when I posted a question on twitter :)

**Be warned, thinner and such may remove your doll’s make up if you’re not careful, so use very little of it and try not to touch your doll’s face if your fingers come in contact with thinner ^^;

So, here we have Aki (Yuki Morikawa dollfie dream) wearing Animetic Eyes / F Type / Bright Blue (RURI) 22 mm (Mirin’s “default”) I think these pair make her look foxy ^^;

And so, I decided to let Aki have the brown pair :3 (isnt’ she spoilt? ^^;)

Thanks for looking, hope can be of help if you decided to get some new eyes for your Dolls :)

    Nice find, I might pick up a pair myself.

    Aki looks so striking with the blue animetic eyes but I think at th end of the day she looks better with the new pair.

    Himitsu looks so good with the purple eyes I approve.

    As for Mirin I concur, she looks better with her regular pair.

  2. The brown is awesome…I always wondered why Volks never did a true brown in any of their Animetic eyes. We need bigger ones, however…I know that Obitsu tends to go smaller on eye holes than Volks, but surely those who mod Obitsu heads might need a 22mm or a 24mm. I actually like how those purples look like on your Himitsu. Namiko’s eyes show no white, and while it’s cartoony look, the smaller eyes might make her look a little more realistic. Hers are “apricot” and I really wanted a brown-brown. So yeah, I might patronize Parabox soon. I need some stuffs for my Obitsus anyway.

      no idea ^^; would definitely be nice to have a larger variety, their green isn’t a true green either… I actually am considering keeping the purple on himitsu sometimes, depending on photoshoot etc ^o^

    Himitsu’s purple eyes are AWESOME! She looks so great with those. I prefer the blues for Aki, she seems to look nicer with them. But blue *is* my favorite color.. ^__^

    • chun says:

      I like how she looks kinda innocent lol and a little surprised perhaps :P I think the blues are nice on Aki but maybe tiny bit too intense? So gonna stick with the brown for now, if I ever come across Rina’s eyes on YJA may take the plunge if the price is not too expensive ^^;

    Am Hurting for Red Eyes.

    How do you remove those stem though?

    Himitsu looks fine though. Narrower irises are hard.
