Received mine from SM Productionz and with a very nice note.
I hope to be combining it with Smoke within a month or two.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

My question is, what are the chances of the lenses sliding into place and "activating" unexpectedly? Is this a concern for anyone?

This takes practice and what the training's for but it's less of an issue than you may think. Personally I won't be performing this until it's completely nailed.

As for the coloured eyes, I love the white because of the Hulk, which is what really drew me to the effect. My eyes are also so dark that I don't think black lenses would look any different. Those with blue eyes may have a different case. What would be great is full cap black lenses, where the white's of the eye are covered but I'm not sure how possible this would be.

I would like to note that I have contacts with the "One year done deal" label on them (as these do) that I bought over 4 years ago that are still in great condition and wear perfectly fine.


I must say I do only wear them once or twice a month, so wear time and how often will definitely help with the longevity of the lenses.


The lenses I am wearing in my AV pic to the left, I purchased them in April 09' (after my 3 yr old niece opened the lens bottle and drank my other (identical) pair Smile ), and they are still in mint condition.

My Black-Out contacts along with my Dark-Elf I bought in 06', and both pairs wear as if I just opened them.

Take good care of your contacts, do the effect only when performing and I'm sure they will last a good while longer then the stated life-span. O'yea, and always make sure your nails are CUT very short when playing with lenses, I learned the hard way a long time ago.

Are you serious? A 3year old drank your contact lenses. Hope you are more responsible with things that shouldn't be swallowed in the future.

^^^ For one thing my niece don't and has never live with me, I was not home, her mother should have been watching her. 2nd, her mother should not have been in the room I was staying in without my permission. Trust me, I feel just as you do.


Back on subject...



Is it possible to just buy the DVD ? I really don't need the lenses as I already have plenty.


Thanks

I second that, you really need the lenses. It's your eyes and just not worth risking them.

I think it is not fair to say in the end of the DVD that some people can't perform this effect at all..

Wait--what? Why can't some people perform the effect at all?

Is that the true meaning of what the dvd says? I would like to know as well if there is something other than the fear of lenses, which will not allow you to perform an expensive trick.

This is probably a question best answered by Marc or Berk, I could be wrong but I took it to mean that some people may not be able to perform the effect, for whatever reason, much like not everyone can do a certain coin or card technique. Learning the techniques requires work, which will vary from person to person, it's not a self-working gimmick, the effort needs to be put in.

With regards to the cost you're receiving a quality DVD that reveals the secret and explains the techniques, as well as the lenses which have their own value. I found the cost just fine compared to other effects I've purchased recently. I'll be gutted if I can't nail the effect, though I certainly won't be blaming the creators or regret the purchase.

It's the effect of the year by far.

After Berk did this on Phenominon there were several kids that tried to duplicate the effect and ended up injuring their eye. One kid had to get surgery to get it fixed and berk and marc can chime in about this story if they want. This isn't something to play around with. Eyes are very delicate and you have to be careful with this one. Order the contacts from alakazam

I think they said on the dvd that some people just don't have that kind of eyes you need to perform this. Or something like that.

I am afraid to take them out of the bottles. I don't want to have to clean them every week.
I wish I had extras so I can at least practice with them and not worry about it. I only plan on using them rarely like once every couple months.

I've had mine for a couple of months now and still struggle to get them in. Once they're in, they're fine and I intend to continue to practice until I can perform this fully before showing. Just thought is was worth mentioning.

I clean them every time I use them, it takes seconds.

I have light blue eyes to begin with. Is it worth getting them in the light colour, or should I wait for more colours to come out? Has anyone with light coloured eyes tried this effect yet?
