I wish Pottermore offered an option to buy your wand. I mean,sure, it’d be expensive, but I want my wand. Not Harry’s or Hermione’s or whatever. 

There are a number of Etsy shops that will do this, generally for between $20-30 (unless you have a wood that’s very expensive and actually want a wand made of ebony instead of simply being stained to look like ebony, in which case I’d guess it would be closer to $40.) Magical Alley does some very lovely work.

I would like to tell you guys about this website, if you have not heard of it already.  Zenni Optical does prescription glasses for $7USD (some frames are more expensive, but they have a LOT of cheap, and really cute choices).  That includes the frames, prescription lenses, a case, and a cleaning cloth.  All for seven dollars.  All you need is your prescription.  For a few dollars extra, you can get prescription sunglasses.  This is a great resource for people on cheap health insurance, or if you just tend to break your glasses a lot and need a few extra pairs.

I just got mine yesterday, and they’re very sturdy.  Better than the last pair I got through insurance, actually.  And when I inevitably break these ones, Zenni has my prescription saved so I can quickly order a new pair.  I picked the cheap shipping option (four bucks), and they took about a week and a half to get here, but there’s a faster option for about $14 or so. 

Glasses are one of those things a lot of cheap health insurance won’t cover, which makes this an invaluable resource for anyone on a budget.  They even ship internationally.

I can vouch that this website is legit and awesome. My current pair of glasses only cost me $60, you get tons of options in terms of the types of lenses+accessories and add ons for basically a fraction of the price that they’d cost at any optical store. I can’t recommend this place enough for anyone that needs an updated pair of glasses

I have two pairs from there, both of which cost me less than $30. I would definitely get glasses from them again.

I have a pair from there which cost me about $60, I went for more expensive frames and transition lenses. Still cheaper than the $230 my other pair cost me, so I cannot complain! They’re really good imo.

Are you telling me that there’s an actual option for prescription sunglasses that isn’t Give Us All Your Money or poorly-fitted clip-ons????

I have a pair from there.  They’re amazing.

got mine here too, they’re awesome as hell

I’ve said it before, but seriously. I can’t recommend these guys more. I’ve loved every pair I’ve gotten from them, and my prescription sunglasses were about $12 total and they’re fuckin’ beautiful.

I can also confirm that Zenni Optical is a great fucking source for prescription glasses! I recently linked a friend who’s doing a Dave Strider cosplay so she wouldn’t have to go blind all weekend just because she doesn’t wear contacts.

It’s handy as hell!

MATERIALS NEEDED:

100% Cotton fabric (voile, muslin proper, linen etc).

Jo Sonya’s Textile Medium

Acrylic Paint

Small stiff paint brush

Freezer paper

Scalpel.

Step 1: Using a scalpel (and cutting mat). Cut out your desired stencil. 

Step 2: Iron your freezer paper onto your fabric (shiny side down) until its stuck evenly.

Step 3: Mix 1/3 Textile medium with 2/3 Acrylic paint. Paint onto the stencil carefully. Allow to dry.

Step 4: Carefully peel off your freezer paper stencil. Iron over your printed area to set the textile medium (otherwise it washes off). And you’re finished! See some of my printed fabric on the ‘Craft’ page for some inspiration :)

I did not know this.  

the only thing Tumblr hasn’t taught me 

Oh god everybody buckle up here come the bird feet

stuckinabucket:

Anisodactyly

The most common bird-feet formation, with three toes forward and one toe back.  You see this with most perching birds, wading birds, swimming birds, and raptors.

Zygodactyly

A bird-feet formation occurring primarily in parrots.  The middle two toes are forward, and the outer two toes are pointed back.  Birds with these feet tend to spend a lot of time clambering oh-so-gracefully around trees instead of just perching.

Syndactyly

Three toes pointing forward, one back, but the outer and middle forward-pointing toes are fused, because kingfishers.

image

image

image

image

image

Heterodactyly

Like the zygodactyly found in parrots, but instead of having the outer toes pointing back, there are two toes pointing back and then two pointing forward.  This only happens in a group known by the weirdly-metal and made-up sounding name of “trogons,” which is basically quetzals, which are weirdly-metal and made-up looking birds.

Pamprodactyly

All four toes pointing forward, because fuck everything.  Found in swifts, because they’re not from this planet.

Okay, it’s not because they’re aliens, it’s because they do this.

A lot.
