Although I was disappointed with my previous Ikon purchase (the Eternal Eyes), I wanted to try the new Destiny Eyes, since I read that it includes a new smaller size, XSmall. The previous smallest size, Small, was still too big for my preference, so I had to give these new eyes a try since they looked nice in the vendor ad.
These are the new sizes – XSmall, Small, Medium, Medium Large, and Large. The previous sizes were Small, Medium, Medium Large, and XLarge (this size is gone). There’s not that much difference between Small, Medium, and Medium Large.
This is the vendor ad for Ikon eyes at The Boutique. I’ve been burned before by Ikon eyes, cos in addition to the size being too large, the eyes in SL lacked the same clarity as the ad. What I think Ikon did, was use the high-resolution texture and morphed it with a real life eye for the ad, instead of taking the picture in SL.
Ikon ad vs. my eye in SL
It does bother me that the ad shows the eyes texture at a higher resolution than the eyes that are sold in SL. I knew in advanced that would probably be the case, from my previous experience with this brand. I still bought the Destiny Eyes, but I would have liked them more, if the ad didn’t irritate me so much.
Am I too picky about this? Do you guys think the texture clarity is “less than” the ad? Does this bother you?
