YEAH! This is a true Rumor.
They copied the eyez of the vampire characters in Blade Trinity from an Afghan Girl named Sharbat Gula that was published in the 1985 national geographic magazine.

This weird bit of speculation goes in the Blade forum...

Wow.. that is .. weird. Do you have any comments or documentation proving this, or is this jsut speculation from seeing those behind the scenes photos?
I know of that beautiful National Geographic photo. I also remember reading the follow up article.
As for the whole thing about trying to 'steal the eyes' either in this movie or the whole desipicable egg story you purport.. again.. where are your sources. I would just as eaisly think they either saw the famous photo and liked the eyes or just happned to be tinkering with contacts and came up with something similar. Rumors on the internet are just fluff and meaningless without sources. This whole page seems rather biased and doesn't seem to have much backing up it's paranoid claims. Plus the whole slang or something spelling of Afgans doesn't quite lend credibility.
I know Afganistan has been through a lot. I remember my dad saying about how horrible the Taliban was to women even before America woke up to them after 9/11. Hell, even before 9/11 maybe we should have been helping the people of Afaganistan. Plus I remember Greg Rucka's comic Queen and Country pointed out about the Taliban in a story he wrote pre 9/11. Though most Americans couldn't even locate the country on a map. PLus let's not forget the mess we made with Russia there during the cold war. Who knows how many of our own weapons were used against us when we went in these past few years. America needs so wake up to the many atrocities of the world and this new crusade against terrorism is somewhat clouding that as much as it does sometimes help.
Anyway, there are a lot of problems with America and Afganistan, this.. I'm ready to write this whole eye thing off as coincidence. I doubt not all Afgans have beutiful eyes. Every ethnicity has it's beauties and it's average looking people. This photo captured a beutiful young girl and her eyes in the country and caught the attention of the world. Many (questionably sane) people even sent in marrage proposals to National Geographic. For me personally the most beutiful eyes in the world belong to my ex-girlfriend who was Sicilian, but I don't go saying all Italians have the most beautiful eyes. Though I do have to confess a preference for them. I myself am of Greek decent and do know ethic pride and can respect and enjoy other people's.
Was this world famous photo an inspiration to the make up and effects people at Blade trinity while trying to make vampire contact? Maybe. Is there documentation or an interview saying so? Maybe they just were trying to make a set of cool looking eyes and just happened to come close. I think the Afgan girl's eyes seem a bit deeper than what is seen in the photos of the contacts. Plus you claim that vampires have red eyes and that really isn't always true. I love vampire stories and there are very many different details in each author's take.
Saw Blade 1 the other say and they said two things that usually are said to work don't in that universe. I know the Blade movies themsevles tinker with it and don't have crosses involved or one other usual detail of vampire myth. Heck, in Blade 2 they had this relaly interesting biological take on vampires and had this whole new species of vampire pop up. Haven't seen Blade 3, so I don't know what the story is with the eyes or if it's just a make up and effects destail.

Yeah, or they could have copied them from Dr. Bruce Banner in the Incredible Hulk series, feat. Lou Ferrigno, back in the early 80's show.
