Didn't Expect That - Pony Eyes

I love museum shops and I love false eyelashes but I never expected to see the combination.  And I surely (don't call me Shirley!) didn't expect them to look like this....

The Victoria and Albert Museum, as a part of their Imperial Chinese Robes exhibition, is offering small paper-cut pony eyelashes.

2 pairs of small paper-cut eyelashes.

Derived from a fascination with the Chinese tradition of fine papercut work, these false eyelashes are a fun and modern interpretation.

Intricately cut and delicately pretty, the design is infused with symbolic meaning rooted in Chinese culture: horses (ponies) are symbolic of success.

Designed by Ting yu Wang.

They're designed by a brand called Paperself, and they have a whole range of full and half lashes in different shapes. I saw them on Asos - so cute!
