Dollbakery Eyes Arrival ^-^
Lot of brown boxes arrived this week ^-^ (I also got a few second hand loli clothes I ordered through Lacemarket.us, I may post about them later.) This is the Dollbakery mini group order I did with Velvet. We didn't really need a GO, since DB offered free shipping anyway if one ordered two pairs or more, but it was nice to do the order together anyway. ^-^ So two of these are for Velvet, who may post about them later once I get to hand them over to her. And the other two were for my Cupcake sisters Milki and Hani.
First though I want to share a comparison of the previous DB box I got (for Nigel's Frozen eyes) and the new one. I really liked the 3D effect of the old box on the right, but this new one on the left is quite nice too. It shows off the company logo well. I still think the boxes are very big! Bigger than any other urethane eye box I have. (I do have a few *cough*.)
Hani got Silver Fox eyes that have a dark grey-brown top half and silver bottom half plus some glitter sparkle. These shine very nicely, although for Hani I might have liked a bit more of the dark part showing... Now I have an even greater urge to repaint this doll though. I want to return to the old black-pink face-up and ditch the green I experimented with here.
Milki got a pair of a new colour Rose Quartz. They are a beautiful pearly pink, maybe just a tad pinker than the Mako pair I had for her for a while. I would have wanted a fully sakura or warm pink eyes for her, but these will do nicely until such eyes are made :D Btw, am I the only one who thinks that Bygg looks a bit like Fairyland Chloe in this photo? It is the strand of hair on her cheek, making it look slimmer, I think.
In these photos I haven't photoshopped the eyes at all. I usually use Dodge-tool in all eyes but I wanted to show the eyes as is for now. DB's eyes catch light so well, that I wouldn't use at all as much Dodge as I usually would. And these photos were taken on a cloudy day, indirect sunlight!
I really want to get more DB eyes for my dolls. Some of them have eyes I can't really replace (ED customs that Eiko and Cotton are wearing and then Rigel's and Hippu's Makos are just perfect for him) or don't want to replace (Ford's Vings eyes and Meringue's Dollflower eyes are the gems of my collection)., but for the rest I want to upgrade them to DB. I just need to decide whether Fyrd would look better in Angelic Green or Melon and maybe just grab every purple pair for Yuffie, since that girl won't be satisfied any other way. XD And even Nuu needs an upgrade. Her dark brown EDs have served well, but I want eyes with a bit more sparkle and glitter for her.
