Decided to investigate.

Last night I successfully threw, with a lot of help from my friends, a surprise party for our friend Justin. He goes, well went, to an audio school in the city, and they don't get much of anything when they finish the program. So I thought it would be a great idea to do something for him. I mean he worked so hard, we rarely saw him. I made him a cake too \( ^ _ ^ )/

I woke up too early, I couldn't get to sleep until 5am for some reason. Now I'm heading out to Mitsuwa to pick up a manga I ordered. Then it's back home for commissions!

So I've been on the hunt for realistic and beautiful looking eyes for my dolls. I am not a fan of the acrylic "printed" look, and I wasn't having luck with glass eyes. Silicone I dislike because the whites of the eyes look strange. I decided to investigate urethane eyes. I know they're expensive, but I was really blown away with all the choices and quality. You can get almost any color with no pupils from Enchanted. I was really smitten with this pair. They would be great for my Little Fee Ante tarutaru!

The downside is they can get scratches and they take months to be made and sent to you. I know as a doll lover I should be used to that, but waiting that long is for whole dolls! Speaking of which, I'm waiting on my Crobidoll Jerome and am getting excited more and more as the days pass. I cannot wait!
