Since there is a number of you that commented to say they liked the lenses but:
1. Need a higher prescription (-6.00 to -10.00)
2. Need lenses of mismatched prescriptions (ex. left eye -3.75 right eye -4.50)
3. Require prescriptions that are of +.25 steps. (ex. -1.25, -2.75 etc)
I thought I should let you know that you can now make custom orders for them over here http://www.aliceandrabbitshop.com/customorders.htm
There are new lens models up for order too! And as always, if you have any questions or inquiries, don't be afraid to write to my friends at Alice and Rabbit's Shop using their contact form http://www.aliceandrabbitshop.com/contactus.htm They're very nice and accommodating!

Mainly it would result in 100% more videos for you guys, as well as being able to branch out and really dedicate time in production and editing.
This is something I've been talking about with Kelly for a while now, and I have recently (after some serious talk) gained my mothers support in the venture.
However, I can't do it for free. This is where you guys come in.

Opening Wig Commissions!Hello all!Opening Wig Commissions!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Due to an overwhelming positive response I am opening up wig commissions starting in June! At this point in time I am ready to start taking commissions to order bases for in order for those bases to be here in June so I can start work on them right away
I will be accepting 5 commissions to start.
The pricing will be done on a quote basis, which means that I will assess the price of the commission once I have all of the information on the project. It will factor in base wig cost + materials + work + shipping
To ensure that I can get you the best product possible, I am hoping that people commissioning me will use the following form so that I can know all of your stipulations up front

The history of the birthday cakeOrigin of the birthday cakeThe history of the birthday cake2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item
Mal's MessageMal: Hello again, my faithful followers. It still amazes me that I have such a big fan base, despite being evil and all.Mal's Message1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Manitoba has been searching for me for days, but I keep using a mirror trick to confuse him from my true location. He's been wandering in circles. It's amusing, but that Indiana Jones wannabe is figuring out that he's being duped. It won't be long now before he finds me.
That is why I must relocate to find a better hiding spot, as I have no interest in encountering the other personalities in my...weakened state.
My computer I will destroy, so that there is no trace for Manitoba to follow. I will create a new computer when I successfully hide from Manitoba and when I can shield my signal from the others.
That means that I must leave you all.

I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out
Dear DeviantARTI understand that changes are essential, whether it’s in term of design or usability. I’ve been using DeviantART for 6 years and a half and in these past years, DeviantART has changed a lot, and I embraced every change. I love changes! (except for the new hideous logo - of course) I love the new layout design and I love the way DeviantART introduced status posts and mentions, these are some really cool stuff.Dear DeviantART3 months ago in Personal More Like This
But I’m concerned about something. I’ve been waiting for deviantART to bring the footer back but I think I’ve waited long enough and I’m sure now, that there’s no way it’s coming back.
I repeat, changes are essential, but if these changes are limiting a user’s activity, you should rethink it.
Back when we had a footer, we had the ability to set “channels” and most users had the channel set to Daily Deviations… Now, what are Daily Deviations? Daily Deviations are FEATURED artworks, they change every 24 hours, a

This picture was posted up, and has since been deleted off their page due to the massive backlash. I can't even begin to comprehend what made them post it up. And I can't tell if the picture is pointing at overweight people, westerners, or both. Either way it's sickening.
Time and time again I see this bullshit. Even searching up cosplays on google, you see images of cosplayers being ridiculed for a 'bad choice'. Yes, I've said many times that one should choose their costumes wisely, but that should NEVER limit someone. I think we all have to remember why we cosplay- why we're all part of this subculture.

You really liked living with the guardians. It was fun, going on crazy adventures. Doing heroic stuff...and some not so legal stuff. It was almost always an adrenaline rush, and you loved every minute. The guardians were warming up to you, though secretly your favorite was Groot.

Aang for a Cure: FDP Charity FundraiserHello everyone!Aang for a Cure: FDP Charity Fundraiser2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking for the last month or so about FDP's next charity event. It's been a while since Nova's Pray for Japan campaign (relief for tsunami victims) and I figured that it might be time for another project.
I've been talking for years about shaving my head to cosplay Aang. He's my favourite character in The Last Airbender, and although I've cosplayed him before that was a while ago (aka I'm not satisfied with that costume XD). To kick my ass into gear to do this, I've decided to shave my head for cancer research. Shaving off hair for cancer fundraisers is a pretty common thing to do, but this time there's a twist when you make a donation of any size to any cancer society (I've provided links to some major ones, but feel free to donate to any local organizations or organizations in your country that I may have missed!) reply to this message and include 1) Where you made a donation to 2) Who you want to shave Aang's head: Sokka, Zuko, Azula, Katara or Toph

Structuring a Story: Framing devices
Welcome to another :iconpocketstories: workshop! We're glad you could make it! This month's workshop will focus on framing devices; what they are, how we can use them, and why we should use them.
What’s a framing device?
So this links into the way we structure our stories, and also into the narrative. Instead of a story using a straight forward omniscient narrator (the most common frame) we can use other methods to tell the story.
Someone telling the story.
This could be someone telling the story to children, around a campfire, anything. The key is to make the story teller a character, but without this character actually impacting on the story that’s being told.
This is a great way to tell a story from a specific person’s perspective, and allows for heavy characterisation.

Miniaturists, unite!I haven't met a single miniaturist in deviantART that hasn't made the same question at least once: Where do I submit my work?.Miniaturists, unite!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Whether you make dolls, furniture, clothes, props, food, scenery, buildings, trains, wargaming miniatures, models, dollhouses or many other miniatures I'm surely forgetting, at some point or another there's no appropiate gallery to submit our work. Artisan Crafts / Ceramics, Pottery & Clay / Miniatures is only appropriate if you use clay, and the next best option, Traditional Art / Sculpture doesn't make the cut most times.
As renowned artist Snowfern so eloquently stated: "as I'm moving on to different mediums, I really do wish dA had some scale dollhouse miniature section right now, I can only post my mini clay work under clay -> miniatures, so everything else is quite random, like my 1:12 books are under....bookmaking??".

inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat
=to show that it doesn't remove paint, here is the finished piece=
