Closeup of Rutela's eyes. No touchups done to this photo, just a bit of color correction to pull the warm hues back out after the flash. Lots of people tell me her eyes are creepy, but I'm afraid there wasn't anything I could do to make them blink, haha. Her eyes and head dots are made of the same iridescent plastic and are very reflective to light but sometimes barely appear at all if there is no light shining on them.
I can see through them pretty well; it's like looking through dirty green sunglasses. But they fog up pretty badly when I'm too warm in the costume. :(

This costume is just gorgeous and uses some really interesting and clever techniques. <3
Have you considered using a layer or two of black mesh for the black part of the eyes? It would appear opaque from outside, but would allow for airflow.

Wow, those are some amazing eyes! I think that really helps the costume look more "real" than using your own eyes would.
