RE: [urbanvita] Pics of contest kit blank face with various eyes
- ValerieThank you for your comprehensive review on the contest expression kit.Vita's eyes ARE UNIQUE in the fact they are a 10mm ball with a 3mm Iris. This is the only way we could get the proper amount of white to show around the iris for a more realistic look so we manufacture them ourselves to our specifications. BUT with that being said it also leaves the collector open to many possibilities for their own unique looks.As for the eye opening, I sculpted them to look more realistic. If they had been sculpted with a more OPEN eye your creativity is limited. But with a more realistic look it allows the collector to have as many possibilities as you can now open the eye as wide as you like.Enjoy! :)Best RegardsDorinda BalaneckiDesign Director Horsman Ltd

The Vita faceplates are quite unique. The eye holes themselves are quite small, but the eye wells that hold the eyes are large enough for a 10mm round back eyeball (in fact to use the screw on eye holders, you really need a round back 10mm eye or Vita's own eyes to fit properly.)
I like an 8mm eye but then you will need to use eye putty, which is okay as the eye itself is too small to be held in by the holder) Although Vita's eye pupil is around 6mm, the eye itself has a large round back so it is the size of a 10mm round eyeball with a very tiny colored 6mm pupil..Very odd. These eyes look the most realistic, with the white showing, as you will get an eye with only color showing using larger eyes.
I plan to cut open the eye slits slightly so I can use larger eyes. The slits on the Lust face are nearly closed, so you can hardly see the eye color. Here are some pics of the Joy face with her original eyes and some 10mm eyes:
Vita's own 6mm eyes that came with the kit (I got a pair in blue and a pair in green):
Some 10mm eyes by Glastic:

The faceplates are fun and easy to get on. They just push onto the back part of the head. The eye holders are a bit fussier as you need a small philips screwdriver to hold the two screws that hold the holder over the eyes. Then you can move the eyes to any position, which is great...side glancing, up, down, etc. and they will stay there without putty.
