This Halloween, Ersa Flora – Doll Eyes is presenting a new group of eyes inspired by Halloween themes. Shelly of Ersa Flora originally started creating custom doll eyes when she couldn’t find the right eyes available for her own dolls. She explained, “I always really adored anything shimmery and sparkly and quickly started coming up with more and more designs, eventually adding a glow-in-the-dark option when I found some nice paints.” Her shop originally opened on Den of Angels under the name FantasEYES in September 2009. A few months later the store was launched online.
Ersa Flora carries eyes in sizes 8 mm to 24 mm. The eye “white” can also be painted any color, the most popular colors being black, red, gold, silver and copper. Along with metallic, iridescent, and glowing eyes, Shelly offers a section for ordering customized eyes. Eyes designed by customers can be created to their specifications. According to Shelly, “I thought at the beginning it’d be a fun option to have. I do get a lot of orders for custom designs, those are always a great deal of fun to make. It’s always interesting to see what others come up with!” Currently Ersa Flora carries acrylic eyes, but is expanding into glittery glass eyes, metal steampunk eyes, and hopefully urethane resin eyes in the near future.
The Halloween eye project grew from a custom project for a doll-in-progress for BJDcollectasy. Most of the eyes were designed completely by Shelly, with a few additions by BJDcollectasy.
