Default Rainy's Foam Boobie-Round Eyes

Are these the only eyes like this or are their alternatives? I am trying to find a cheaper alternative to these with a bit better availability.

The fly I want to tie with these is the booby frog

If you're not fussy about the eye color or whether it sticks on or is painted, you can use two styrofoam balls in a nylon net, tied on to the hook. They will be white and buggy, just not colored, but i dont think that matters too much. I suppose you could put sticky eyes on the balls and then put them in the nylon and tie them on....
just a suggestion.

That's actually not a bad idea! I think Michaels has little foam balls that come in a myriad of colors. I bet I can join them with a toothpick/glue or even some really thick mono and glue
