Starry-eyed Surprise

I see my fated stars in your eyes.

They melt me like the sun does snow  

I was originally inspired to write this post over a week ago (arghh!) when I heard the inimitable (despite some people’s best efforts) Bronson Twine had decided to call it a day on his iconic Ir(regular) Guy blog and I was kinda muhuh.  However please don’t say grey is boring, oh no and ESPECIALLY not in the field of SL eyes, as personally I find grey/ silver eyes some of the most striking around.

While thinking of grey, I could not help but mention the upcoming “Wear Gray for a Day” event, coordinated with tireless enthusiasm by Sanura Snowpaw in aid of the American Brain Tumor Association- maybe you hadn’t considered grey eyes, when pondering what to wear to support this worthy cause? Visit the official website for more information about the event running between the 12th and the 25th September and do your bit for the cause.

Here are 6 of my favourite grey eyes in Second Life and believe me , I had a hard time choosing!

None of these eyes are truly “coloured prim” eyes but the L.Fauna and Mynerva have extra prims to add a special glint and shine.

I will put the individual pics on my Flickr, in case you want to see each eye in more detail.

I have long been a huge fan of Shine Eyes, as for lucid brilliance for a very modest price, I find them hard to beat and I wear this Lustrous Argent pair A LOT.

Pulse eyes have the most amazing shadows in them and a glassy clarity, coupled with realistic scleral (white of the eye) shading.

Hermony eyes seem to couple a gritty realism with a fantasy element seamlessly and I have to admit my own pupils widened with delight and my brain said WANT!! as soon as I first saw the eye vendor in store.

L.Fauna eyes have become a fairly recent joy and seem to burn through you with their large-pupilled vivid colour- each pair has 2 types of prim to experiment with.

These Detour Crystal Eyes were one of my first “ooh quite expensive but so good” purchases in SL- the pupils are quite small but the detail fantastic they are only sold in complete colour packs but they always seem to give me a different look when I wear them.

Finally after tracking down this oh so gorgeous skin that is Mynerva‘s Think Pink hunt prize, I had to pick up some eyes to try too – you can adjust the brightness of the prim to give some dramatic effects , especially in low light conditions and it is definitely a brand delivering far more than just skin (even though I ❤ the skin very much!)

I was so thrilled that Annie Ibanez of Ibanez Eyes, creator of exceptional fantasy, creature and regular eyes recently flagged me down with a preview of her new line. TRANQUIL EYES won’t sedate you, rather excite you with their exquisite detail, brilliant clarity and beautiful expressiveness…

You will want to see more of this stunning range, but for now, here’s ALLURE….fabulous light blue eyes seem to be my current passion, but with a wide selection of prims, you can really get creative!

EyeTease at The Dressing Room

Start a blog yay! then circumstances keep y0u mostly offline for several days boo! but have some great finds just limited to this week to share.

I have been a fan of *YS &YS* (YourSkin & YourShape*) eyes for a while now and was thrilled to see that a 5 pair pack of IntenseEyes currently available at The Dressing Room– this ice blue shade is so appealing and really wows against the Adriana skin from new store EyeTease (how appropriate!) that I managed to win on a lucky board.

The Innocent lashes from [Glow] are beautiful yet subtle for everyday wear and even a less than confident jewellery wearer like me couldn’t fail to be impressed by these bold and beautiful earrings from Magic Nook, both at T.D.R this week. Always great designer bargains to be found, priced no higher than 70L

Gosh after an initial flirtation with being more tanned than I ever could in RL (that’d be very slightly brown then ;-P), Elfie is mostly pale these days but this Latina look coupled with sparkly blue eyes  made me feel quite glam and want to dance and pose! Well bedtime for me but let’s see what eye find tomorrow!

  • Eyes : Intense eyes 5 pack *YS&YS* at The Dressing Room
  • Lashes: Innocent by [glow] at T.D.R
