Pullip Cheshire Cat in Steampunk World features the debut a new style of eye mechanism, basically instead of being able to just fully open or close her eyes she is also able to have her eyes just partially closed as well. Pullip Cheshire Cat will be getting a few review here as well very soon but I wanted to make a post devoted to the new style of mechanism as I know I can’t be the only one who was curious how it works. I really love and adore Pullip Cheshire Cat as is so I can’t bring myself to take her apart to make a thorough investigation into her eye mechanism but Pullip Lupinus is coming and I feel as though she would benefit from some new eyechips…and if I have to open her up anyway well then I can do some comparison pictures of the newer style mechanism versus the normal mechanism.
While I normally am not one to post videos, the new eye mechanism is easier to understand in motion. I decided to shoot a short video of the new eye mechanism in action, I ended up shooting two alternate views on my phone so I could share how it looks from the front and the back just in case anyone was curious how it worked.
I honestly do not expect videos to become a regular part of this website but sometimes things are just easier to explain or understand in video than in photos (though somewhat hilariously tumblr judged one of the two videos I posted above as sexually explicit). More traditional photos as well as comparisons etc behind the cut!
