Bought Oscar Doll eyes

I've been brooding a lot about what to do style-wise with my dolls to make them look very unique and like they belong to me. I haven't had much luck with that until a few days ago.

Once again I found myself looking through Taobao in search for something cool, when it hits me - I keep going to the pages showing cute and frilly stuff. I don't want my dolls to be child-like, but I must confess I'm a sucker for lolita/mori/victorianesque dresses. So I think - maybe I should use this as my style, but make my own take on it.

First, I decide that I want Oscar Doll eyes for all my dolls. I love how they look and sparkle, and it gives a nice and exciting feel to the dolls imo. I wanted colorful eyes, because the clothes I'll be making (yeah, hopefully this will go well and not be an eternal project) will all be more dusty/powder colors. So I thought it might make a cool contrast with sparkly colorful eyes ^^

I hope to be able to make clothes that can look well together with my White Rabbit Tristan's full set, as I'd really like for him to wear it actually. It's so detailed and cool. It would be a shame to just use it for special shoots.

For the fun of it, I've played around with Photoshop to 'try the eyes I've bought in the dolls I want them in'. So here you can see which eyes I've ordered:
The Loli Clown eyes for my Fitzwilliam because they are red-ish and look really nice ^^

 The Aqua Blue eyes for Freyah, because I think she looks amazing with blue/green eyes :D

And the Divine Excorcist eyes for Ophelia, because I've always thought she needed yellow/orange-ish eyes, and I really found these interesting. I've ordered these in 14mm, but I got her Dlight Oscar Doll eyes in 16mm, so I'm pretty excited to see how they'll actually look (obviously not as fake as here) XD

I've been communicating a lot with PW over the last few days because of these eyes. They told me that the Dandy Tristan sculpt use 14mm Oscar Doll eyes, and that open eyed dolls would use 16mm Oscar Doll eyes. Therefore I tried ordering Ophelia's eyes a size smaller than her Dlight eyes, because I'd like to think it will look more 'natural' size-wise. :)

I'm really happy that PW allowed me to get all these eyes send (free shipping!) together with Fitzwilliam once he is ready. That was really cool of them. I also bothered them with my store points, because their home page had somehow stopped counting my points a year ago or so. XD'
So I almost got a pair of eyes for free! :O

That is it for now. The Taobao order from December is finally in Denmark, but due to really sloppy customs work, it has still not been released. ^^"
But I will make sure to post about all the stuff I've received when I do ;D

      When you added the eyes to your order, did you just buy them and pay for them, then got them added to the order or?
      I'm considering adding a pair to my order :D

    3. Haha awesome. Looking forward to hear more about your plans :)

      Well, I send them the links to the eyes I wanted including description with number of pairs and size. Then they calculated the prize and I paid it using PayPal. :)
      But I'm sure you can add eyes to your order if you want :)
