NEW: ColorGlow Eyes


Before time began, there was only darkness. A great sea of black lapped at the shore of night, the emptiness undisturbed by dreams or energy. Then, without warning, a spark appeared. From the center of the eternal twilight, the light blossomed, causing the surrounding shadow to tremble and fall away. Heat radiated from the luminescence, curling through the cold space as the light rapidly expanded. And as abruptly as it appeared--

The light burst.

The explosion flung pieces of the ruptured light across existence, marking the sky like the curving, bending stroke of a hasty brush. Form was created and colors could be seen. And the power of this moment can be found in the gaze of ColorGlow Eyes.

For this line, Annie aimed to capture the intensity that colors can possess. Each of the 24 bold hues bends and refracts light to its will, hearkening back to their powerful origin. The very subtle lid shadow generates a realistic feel without taking away from the bold feel, and the black halo about the iris accents the color perfectly.

Captivated? Navigate to the new IBANEZ Main Store to catch your own set!

NEW: Tranquil Eyes


With the buzz of summer steadily fading with the daylight, a calm, reflective atmosphere settles upon the world alongside falling leaves. Crisp breezes play with hair, spicy aromas curl about noses, and the crunch from underfoot tickles the ear. Those looking to capture these autumnal attributes will find them in the gaze of Tranquil.


This line of IBANEZ eyes features the same style as the SoftGlow and SmoothGlow varieties, using a dark border about the iris to enhance color and subtle shine details to welcome the onlooker. Unlike them, it incorporates greater vein detail, with iris incorporating different hues, ranging in slight shifts in the spectrum to colorful contrasts. The Tranquil series features 25 options at L$99 each, allowing anyone to find a smooth, sanguine look that suits them.

To catch these beauties, step into the new IBANEZ Main Store!


LOTD Part Deux: Ibanez Glossy Eyes in Paranormal

The ever fashionably-forward demoness Vasha Ildor poses for me in a casual, dark ensemble loaded with accessories that lash up an edgy, inviting look. I am always so in awe of the stuff this woman finds...she's in touch with the darker side of SL fashion, that which we don't see enough of in fashion blogging! Vash models my brand new extended line of Glossy Eyes (formerly only in red and black, now in all 24 crayola-cool colors) in the shade "paranormal", available OCT 1st at the new store. Mmm. LOVE IT!

LOTD: SoftGlow Eyes in Panacea

The lovely Saxin Munro poses for me in the store, looking supple and sexy as always. This ensemble is so well balanced with the deep rich skin and hair colors, countered by the ethereal pale eyes and wings, that the effect is sheer cotton-candy-bliss! Why this woman isn't doing her own fashion blog I may never know.

October is opening the doors to more than just ghouls and goblins - this Friday, at 6pm SLT, IBANEZ Eyes will host a grand opening party for its new main store! And just as we have been feeding teasers of all the treats that await inside the shop, I thought I'd throw in some previews of the build alongside the celebration information.

NEW: Rivendell Eyes 2.0

Old makes way for new with the completion of the Rivendell eyes upgrade! These were one of my first lines ever released and were in desperate need of sprucing up. These spellbinding elven style eyes now feature realistic eye whites with vein detail, wet reflections, highlights, and lid shadows, as well as more centered pupils.

I did a fun photoshoot with 7 random colors. One of the things I love about fantasy eye colors is that you can get really creative with them. This skin is Tess 2 - Makeup 5 by LAQ and as you can see has about four lovely shadow and eyeliner colors that play across the lids beautifully. I've used eyes with complementary hues and it has a really lovely effect.


I'd say these are a great purchase if you are a human, elf, fae, creature or a fashionista looking for something different! This line of extra large eyes comes in 24 colors and as always is 99L. Each pair comes with a regular version and prim version with alpha layer to hide your default eyeballs (recommended). Below is the full color range, available OCT 1 2010 at the new Mainstore Grand Opening!

Skin - LAQ: Tess2 Makeup 5
Lashes - Redgrave
