Lots of eyeball eating in Tokyo, eh? Hehe, Happy Halloween! A day late, but I have a good excuse. It turns out that making jelly eyeballs is not as easy as it sounds. It took me FIVE TRIES to get a half-way decent result. I was dead set on making a spooky snack for Halloween, and I meant to get this post up earlier in the week, but these eyeballs were SO HARD to make. The biggest problem I ran into was getting the eyeballs to unmold without totally pulling the eyeball in half, which is what happened for most of my attempts. The key is getting the right gelatin concentration, compressing the mold, and freezing.
If you want to make these, good luck my friend. After the amount of failure I faced, I’m not sure if this is totally worth it. Everyone else online makes it look so easy, but I am unconvinced. However, these eyeballs would be a really cool addition to a cosplay if you wanted to cosplay Uta from Tokyo Ghoul or Syaoran’s clone from Tsubasa: Tokyo Revelations.
