1/12 scale ALTER EGO MkXX bjd model kit
Oubli3tt3 @Mr_props Thanks for the tip I'll have to try and get my hand on some piano wire.
Oubli3tt3 Ooo I can't wait to get my hands on this one! I had a few problems with the other alter ego kit (several of the pieces didn't print with holes all the way through for the string to go through) I'm not sure if that was my fault for giving it a couple base coats before cutting it out or if they really were solid all the way through to begin with. I hope to have better luck with this one! You no longer recommend the usual elastic string for connecting these? I still have lots of string from the other Alter Ego can I still try it or are the holes too small or something for it to work?

ALTER EGO 1/12 scale doll kit
Oubli3tt3 Yay! My Alter Ego is finally here and now I can't decide where I want to start >_

Oubli3tt3 @Mr_props Yay! I'm so glad :) They weren't easy to find at first because I didn't know the right search terms but a determined hobbyist is nothing if not resourceful ;)
Oubli3tt3 Just got my 3mm eyes in, waiting on my alter ego to ship but I think from 'eyeballing' them that they're about the right size for a 1:12 scale doll. They don't match each other perfectly (as suits their label of second best) but I think inside a head you'd barely notice the differences. Sorry, my camera broke recently so I don't have pictures to share but I'm getting super excited to see all my research and planning come together soon!
Oubli3tt3 @Mr_props http://stores.ebay.com/The-Morezmore-Estate_6-DECORATE-FINISH/_i.html?_nkw=eyes+seconds&_fsub=14944039&_sid=58601371 These are the best I've found so far. I've found other dealers for the same eyes but as they mention they vary in shape, color and pupil placement. So these that have been presorted to match each other are the best I've found - though these are only this seller's SECOND BEST eye pairs, they also have slightly higher price listings for perfect matches. I have a pair of these 3mm brown second best on their way to experiment with myself :D http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-PAIR-German-Glass-Doll-EYES-on-wire-Choose-Size-Dolls-Fairies-Ooak-123-/400527275074?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item5d41493442 That should be a listing for all colors from 2mm and up, 3 pairs each, though they have not been pre-sorted for best results. https://www.etsy.com/listing/220040488/hand-made-glass-like-eyes-4mm-set-of-3? Set of 3, 4mm glass-like eyes in the common colors (brown, blue, green). Since those are probably hand made by the seller they might be able to accommodate additional colors or sizes. I hope one of those is helpful!
Oubli3tt3 @airshiphope I feel your pain. Being able to pout doll eyes in is probably my one and only complaint with the series. Perhaps Mr_Props will indulge us with alternate head models for all the kits that allow for the use of glass eyes in these lovelies. I've found several wonderful dealers of glass eyes from 3mm's up that I'm sure will fit these kits to a T only standard colors but they'll do to start and I can always make my own if I feel the need for something more unique.
