Step 7: Scary Baby!

 How to Change Eyes

“The first thing you need to do in order to get at those eye sockets in there, is cut the neck hole larger.  So get your utility knife out, and remember to mind your fingers!

Cut the neck hole bigger by cutting towards the outside edge of the neck and then around the inside of that rim.  It doesn’t matter if you make a very jagged cut–you can always trim it later if needed.  The only thing you cant do is cut past that outer edge, because that is where your cable tie will go to connect the head to the body later. 

When you have reached the outside edge on the bottom, pull your knife out and reinsert it where you started and then cut along the top edge of the socket….

I usually cut mine off just because I feel like that, but it could help hold your eyeballs in if you are worried about them falling out.  I’ve never had that happen, so I’m not going to keep the flap there, but you can do whatever you want. 

Push the original eyeballs out from the front, and you’re left with a scary demonic baby like this

Pinch your new eyeball between two fingers.  I like to use my index and middle finger, but do whatever feels comfortable to you.  If you have small hands, you might be able to hold it normally and get your whole hand inside the head.  But if not, hopefully your fingers are long enough to reach the sockets.

Place the eye in the empty socket however you can manage it.  Just feel around for the hole and then shove that eyeball in there. 

After you have placed your eye or eyes, move them around to see where you might like them.  Try moving them to the left, to the right, up a little, down a little, etc.  When you find a position you like, push the eyes out again and get ready to commit to the new eyeballs!”
