UNIQSO's Xumo wig & Doraemon Kigurumi

Hey hey~
It's that time of the month where I post a review on the products I got from UNIQSO!
For a childhood theme, I picked these items!

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Black
Wig Length: 30cm

I picked this wig hoping it would be longer, but it's actually very layered and short, so if you're looking for a very short wig that would suit the Matsuno brothers or a daily look, this is your wig of choice!

Despite short, the wig is thick and the hair doesn't show through. There's enough fibers to work with for other short hairstyles and the wig is heat resistant, so you can have all the freedom to play around with it!

I tried going for a Nobita look from Doraemon and I think the wig is pretty nice if you are looking to do that cosplay.
I love it!

I have originally planned to use it for Akira Kurusu, but the wig is much shorter than expected, so I might just save it and style it for someone else.

The back is layered properly so there are no bald spots! It's a good wig!

Processing Time:3 - 4 working days
Material: Flannel
What is inside: One piece of kigurumi, exclude shoes

Here's a little tip before you order a kigurumi... order a size or two bigger than you actually need. Sitting or sleeping in these is pretty hard if it's your accurate size... 

This is a size bigger than I needed, but I would've still gone for an even bigger size for the bigger comfort. 
The leg cuffs and the arm cuffs are quite tight, but it's nothing too bad and nothing I can't live with.
The fabric is very soft and warm, but I still wore my pajamas underneath since flannel fabric isn't the warmest on it's own in the cold weather.

The side pockets are too small, but the front pocket is great! It's actually big enough for a smartphone! 
The butt has a zipper in case you want to go to the toilet wearing this kigurumi, but I don't see that as practical at all, so I'd recommend taking it off completely? 

Overall the kigurumi is quite nice, but please order a size bigger than what you need for the max comfort!

Thank you for reading!

UNIQSO's Glory of Kings Wig Review

Hello~ Hello~

Here's a fun review! 
For the first time I got a wig from Uniqso by China Post and I was freaking out so much thinking that it would get lost or something.
It turned up way sooner than I'd expected and it's a pretty nice wig!

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Brown
Wig Length: 30cm

The wig is nice dark brown and it looks pretty flat once you open the package, but it's very easy to style to get that poof the product image has.
I just parted the wig with a brush and made the spikes with the hair iron. The style is similar, eh? 

The style of the wig reminded me so much of Squall from Final Fantasy that I ended up doing a costest on him.
I did the spikes on the dry wig and I had to shape them with my fingers, but for the better results, I recommend you wetting the wig and making the spikes with the hair iron while the wig is still wet.

I recommend you watching my video on how to style a wig like this. (I used a wig from UNIQSO in this video!)

I'm sure this wig can be used as a daily fashion acessory since it has a natural color and it's not very shiny. I do recommend you styling it in a way that makes it look more realistic. I'm not sure that the style the wig comes with and the style I made here are very appropriate for a fashion look.

The wig look short and is very light on the head (and in weight), but it still covers the back of your neck, so you don't have to worry about that wild hair peeking from underneath!

Thanks so much for reading! <3

UWOWO's Kashuu Kiyomitsu Wig Review

Yo! This is my first time reviewing a prouct from UWOWO cosplay. 
I've seen their costumes and wigs up close and they are the real deal! They are good quality and pretty affordable!

For this review, I chose their Kashuu Kiyomitsu wig from Touken Ranbu. 
I love Kashuu and I really hope to cosplay him one day!

The wig is advertised as the following: 
"Package:1pc wigs+1pc free wig capMaterial:high quality synthetic high temp fiberLength:60cm. Head Circumference:50-60cmColor:As picture.The color may vary due to inherent manufacturing varations or your computer monitor color settingsPerfect for Halloween, concerts, theme parties, weddings, dating, and any other occasion"

The wig was shipped in a solid box together wigh a sweet letter from the store and a wig cap.

It arrived real quick and despite being bulky, it didn't get to customs!

As advertised, the wig is brown and heat resistant. 
It is very thick, so it was a little hard to style it down as it has frizzy roots, but I managed to do it somehow.
The frizzy roots can be a real problem in case you don't know how to style a wig...

I didn't have to cut it for this look, so it was a blessing! You might want to cut the wig a little bit to make it look more accurate to the character.
This wig also works perfectly for Mitsunokami as it's an accurate color and the back of the wig was trimmed down to make it possible to style it for Mitsunokami as well!

The ponytail is pretty long, it didn't even fit in the photo! LOL
I'm happy it's long as that gives me the possibility to style it myself.
It does get quite tangly, so make sure to spray the wig with some silicone spray to prevent it from getting knots.

Here's a photo of how the back looks. It's well layered and it can be spiked up if needed!

As for the top, it looks like this.
It gives you freedom to style the bangs to the side you'd like!

UNIQSO's Premium Wig: Short Spiral Curl Black Lace Front Wig review

Hello! Hello!

I'm so excited to write this post because for the first time I've ordered a lace front wig and am in love with it!

Uniqso's wig collection game has gotten stronger and stronger and I'm amazed at how many new items they have and how many lacefronts you can choose from now! 
(Keep up the good work! <3)

So, to reveiw it... 
The wig was shipped to me by DHL Express - a service that does not work in Portugal. Please specify any other express delivery that is not DHL unless you want to spend hours on the phone with the customs just to have your items shipped back. 
I was lucky this time tho and I got my wig in no time!

The wig is absolutely stunning!
It feels like healthy natural hair with messy waves. It's incredibly thick, so your real hair won't show under it.
It might definitely become a wig I'd use on my bad hair days.

This wig is heat resistant, so in case you'd like another hairstyle, you can just go ahead and make it like you would do on your own hair! 
The wig doesn't come with any tape or glue, so you will have to buy those yourself. I'm not wearing any for these photos tho. The wig has hooks inside it that kept the wig well in place.

The hairline... the trickiest part to this wig. Cutting off the lace and making the hairline be my size was a little tricky, but nothing the YouTube didn't help with!
I'm not an expert with this sort of wigs, but I might consider making a video tutorial on how to deal with a lace front wig. 

This wig is also great for cosplay. If you have a character with pulled back hair or a character with a natural hairline, then this might be a good option for you! 
The price of this wig is pretty ok for a lacefront wig. There's obviously cheaper, but the quality of this wig and a 20€ lacefront does not compare. However, I can compare this wig to one of the Arda Wigs my friend owns and for which she paid over 80€ and I can say that they are in the same category.

Thanks for reading! I hope this review was useful!

UNIQSO's Sweety Mini Ghoul & Sweety Mini Sclera lens review

It seems that this year has started with a bunch of lens reviews and those have been fun to do!

This time I'm gonna review a mini sclera lenses and a halloween Ghoul lenses!

Diameter: 17mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Replacement Period: Within 6 months
What's inside: A pair of contact lens + a lens case
Processing Time: 2-3 working days

The lenses last 6 months and are very comfortable to wear. I have incredibly sensistie eyes and these lenses were like a blessing
Their diameter is pretty big so they don't look very natural in terms of size. The pupil hole is sorta big, so they don't cover my iris completely.

I have very light eyes (grey/blue) and it's very difficult to wear dark lenses for me as my iris shows no matter what design I pick! I think that's something the factories should consider when making lenses... 

The only downside to these lenses is that they are a little too big and hard to put inside your eye. They might also cause you some dryness, so you might need to use eye drops while wearing them. 

Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Replacement Period: Within 12 months
What's inside: A pair of contact lens + a lens case
Processing Time: 2-3 working days

The lenses, as you can guess, are very comfortable and really stand out on my eyes! 

These lenses are very cheap, so they make a great option if you are looking for a cheap but quality brand! 
Unfortunately, they do not have prescription, so you can only get them in 0.00 power... 
I still rate them 10/10 because of the comfort they provide and of the interesting design/color!

The customer service of UNIQSO is great. They are super nice and quick to reply. I loved how kind they were to me and how quickly they shipped the lenses to me! 
I also got the lenses within a week after the shipment.

 I strongly advise you to purchase your lenses from UNIQSO as they allow you to pay with PayPal or any other of their selected payment options! That's a huge plus!

UNIQSO's Yamatonokami Yasusada & Syana wig review

Hello~! It's been a while since I updated this blog, right~?

This time I'm reviewing two wigs I got from UNIQSO. Most of my wigs are from them and I'm actually really satisfied with the quality of their products and this time was no different! 

Yasusada wig first:

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Blue & Black
Wig Length: 60cm

The way this wig is advertised makes it seem like it's a ponytail wig with a clip on ponytail to attach to the base ponytail. Unfortunatly that's not the case... the base of this wig is not a ponytail and it's just a regular short wig.

I don't find this to be a problem, but please double check the description or the reviews for the product you are looking for so you don't end up surprised. 

The wig is heat resistant and it's pretty thick, however I've noticed that the blue color comes off and my hair iron is actually stained... It seems like this only happens with high heat tho. It doesn't stain your skin or your hands while you use it, so I don't think it's dangerous at all.

I didn't have to trim this wig, which is good, for Yasusada! I really dislike cutting wigs and I always feel blessed when they come pre-styled properly.

I really like this wig despite being different from what I thought I ordered. It has a very nice color and it was easy to style!

The other wig I ordered was a Syana wig!

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Black
Wig Length: 80cm

The photos from this review got corrupted as I was saving them, so these are the only ones I managed to get out of it, but I think it's enough for you to see how the wig looks like.

It's a regular 80cm long wig with bangs to cut and incredible thickness. The wig is pretty heavy and it's heat resistant.

The wig doesn't tangle much despite being long and it looks very beautiful and natural despite being made out of synthetic fibers. With some styling and acessories, I'm sure this could be used for a daily look and it would look! 

Overall I'm very satisfied with these wigs and I highly recommnend them to you! 
Make sure to check UNIQSO's other wigs and my other reviews as they have a huge variety of products that might come in handy to you! 

Thanks for reading!
