1Eye sockets? Empty Eye sockets? Mon Jun 25, 2012 10:52 am


I hope I'm posting at the correct place?

I've been meaning to ask this since forever, but kinda got lazy/forgot and all that... ;; *coughs* Here's my problem.

It seems that my doll is a little special in that he has eye sockets and on his official website, it's stated that he wears Acrylic eyes, 14mm. I missed out on that detail and got him 14mm glass eyes instead and now his eyes doesn't seem to fit into the sockets properly. Like, there's some distance between the the eyeball and the back of the face. It makes it a little hard to see his eyes? The eye socket looks like this:


So my question here would be does this mean that he can only wear acrylic eyes? And, does acrylic eyes have domes?

erm..... I'll try to answer u up to the best of my knowledge here:

glass eyes and acrylic eyes are basically just different by the materials used to make it, it doesn't affect the size actually. Just that some of the eyes domes are high, be it glass or acrylics. some of the website they did noted that their eyes dome are high/ low/ none, but if they don't u can always ask them before purchase it^^

If the problem is that socket too small, u can get an eye sizer and some sand paper to sand it off a little, might be fit better then?


And currently there's a Dollmore GO's running by hyschara, u can join us if u want it^^
*hey I'm trying to get someone broke here* << so bad

Fumu fumu, I see. Thanks for answering! I can now happily go back on choosing glass eyes for my doll. I prefer glass eyes over acrylic ones. ^_^;;

As for the shop, I actually went through it already. XD; Unfortunately I can't find anything I want. Well okay, I do want the sofa but it's expensive...

Lucifer has a similar problem too, though it's nothing too serious. I'm not sure if smaller eyes will help cause there might be an empty gap between the eye and the socket.

But what I do know is that you can enlarge the eye socket using the eye beveler. That tool will help you much on this matter Very Happy

Well if nothing interests you in the Dollmore GO there's always the Taobao GO as well as CoolCat GO ^_^

12mm eyes should also fit, just that the iris will look a bit smaller when they're in. (: There shouldn't be any gapping, as it's only one size smaller-- my tinies are supposed to wear 14mm, I think, and they can wear from 12mm - 16mm (they have 12mm eyes in at the moment, and they look good). I was considering getting 10mm for one so she'd look more mature but I think it would start to gap then.

(From memory, I think there was a company that sells in-between sized eyes, too? So theoretically you could get 13mm sized eyes that don't look as small as 12mm would when they're in, but obviously not as big as 14mm would. I'll look it up later and edit some info in if/when I find it.)
