UNIQSO's Hotarumaru wig review

This is going to be the last review for this month, as I'm on holidays, so just before I leave social media for a while, I wanted to shatre a review on this beautiful wig I got from UNQISO.

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Type: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Silver Grey
Wig Length: 32cm

So, this wig looks like a bob cut from the front, but it's actually not. It's shorter on the back and longer on the front. It's a very cute look!

The color of this wig is very pretty! It's silver, but it has a slightly violetish tone under certain lights. 
The wig is quite thick and easy to style, thanks to it being heat resistant. 
There's no shine to the wig, but I cannot say it looks natural, as the color is very unnatural!

I think the cut is very flattering and it's perfect for the character the wig is designed for. It came styled just as on the product photo, but I styled it down so I could test it for Erica from Gangsta.

Finding a right color and cut for Erica is difficult but I think this wig does the trick! It's quite accurate to some of her designs and the cut is very nice!

Overall, this is a very nice wig and it's quite nice quality. Uniqso has very good cosplay wigs and I really recommend you to try them out as they are very thick and not plastic looking!

Uniqso's Shimakaze wig and I.Fairy Poppy Blue lenses

It's been a while since I did a review on Uniqso's products here. I've been busy with my finals and this is the first time I'm able to get some time to take photos and do my makeup... 

This time, I got really beautiful wig and lenses and I'd like to share my review with you! Please excuse the photos, but it's very veeeery hard to take photos of myself in a long wig.

So, here's the wig I got. 

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Type:  100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Light Gold
Wig Lengtht: 80cm

The wig came in super fast and is just as on the picture! I love it!

The wig is very light blond, but it doesn't seem too yellow or too platinum. It's a collor in between, which makes it look very natural and pretty. 
The wig is long and very thick, however it isn't heavy on my head nor does it get as tangled as you'd think.

Obviously, like any other long wig, tangling is not possible to avoid, but gentle brushing with a brush or your fingers does the magic and puts the wig back in place! 
I think that this wig is very well sewn, since it doesn't show the net at all and it's adjustable in case you have a big head or a lot of hair. It's a bit too big on me, but I can just make it smaller by repositioning the hooks.

I got this wig for Klavier from Ace Attorney, but I'm very unsure if I want to cut this wig and style it since it's beautiful as it is!
I feel like a princess when I wear this wig! 

Overall, this wig is very beautiful and it really does price the justice. Uniqso's wigs are very good quality and are very thick, so don't be afraid to pay a little more. This wig's thickness corresponds to two cheap wigs' thickness, so the price is pretty fair! 
The wig is also heat resistant and it's not shiny at all, so it's definitely a great purchase! 

Moving on to the lenses now... 

I got their I.Fairy Poppy Blue contacts that I have been eyeing since they came into the store, but had no reason to get them... Thankfully, I have Honoka, Eli and Asuka cosplays to do soon and these lenses are just perfect for them! 

Base Curve: 8.6mm
Color Tones: 1 Tone
Diameter: 16.2mm
Processing Time: 2-3 working days
Remarks: Free 1 normal lens case (medium)
Replacement Period: 12 months
Water Content: 55%

As you can see, these lenses look very similar to Super Pinky Blue, BUT they are bigger for 1.2mm and they have a bigger water content. They are much more comfortable on my eyes!
I love big lenses and the more water content they have, the more comfortable they feel!
These lenses are by far my favorite ones. I own 7 pairs of blue circle lenses and none are as beautiful and as comfortable as these.
These lenses blend in very well with my eyes and they would also look amazing on hazel and green eyes. I do not recommend them on very dark eyes as the lenses have some transparency to them and they might not be as vibrant on your eyes.

Thank you for reading!

LensFlavors' Super Pinky Wine Red

This review took me longer to do than the usual, but the weather and light were very bad lately, so I couldn't get any nice pics...

Anyway, here's a review on these sweet lenses I got from LensFlavors
They are Super Pinky Wine Red $28.90 (shipping included)!

The lenses, as you can guess, are very comfortable and look amazing on my eyes! 
I have blue eyes, so wearing any sort of lenses is difficult as they might not show well or they will look very weird... 
Super Pinky has the perfect design for both light and dark eyes. The design is pretty natural and it blends in with the natural iris. 

I like how the lenses aren't a vibrant red and don't pop out too much as this was the look I was going for! 
I would love to try the bright red lenses as well one day, but for now these are just perfect! 

The customer service of this store 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 two weeks after the shipment.

If you are interested in buying lenses such as Super Pinky and G&G, but don't wish to give out your credit card information, I strongly advise you to purchase your lenses in this store as they allow you to pay with PayPal and that's a huge plus!

CosplayHouse's Radu Barvon wig review

Recently I have received a wig from CosplayHouse!
As many of you know, CosplayHouse is one of the oldest costume and wig stores and most cosplayers from my time only dreamed to purchase their stuff at that store!
Reviews on the costumes were always so good and the wigs always looked really nicely styled.

Unfortunately, since eBay and Aliexpress offer such cheap wigs and costumes, I am here to do a review on a wig I got from CosplayHouse and tell you if it's worth paying more for their wig or if you should buy it elsewhere.

To begin this review, I got a wig for Radu Barvon from Trinity Blood. The link to the wig is here
I've changed through wigs for this cosplay and they never looked good enough, so I went ahead and asked for this specific wig to be made by CosplayHouse.

Before I go any further, I want to inform you that it took me about 2 months to get the item delivered to my address and here's why: as written on their website, they take comissions and not all items are in stock, so they have to get the wig and style it for you. It can take from 4 to 8 weeks to get the item ready for you! 

I did not mind waiting, as this was a wig I trully wanted and was in no rush to wear it for my cosplay. 

After the shipment, the wig arrived to me within 2 days via FedEx. 
The wig was shipped in a box, so it wouldn't get smashed by the carriers and it was packaged with one wig cap.

Now, the review of the product and the photos you've all been waiting for:

This is the wig I received. It's made out of very thin fibers and it's not very thick, however, it's heat resistant and the net doesn't show through. 
At first, the wig seemed very "cheap", since I thought I would receive a very thick wig, but after trying it on, I really liked it! The cut is real nice and the ponytail isn't as thick as my previous one was! It's very light on my head and it looks very pretty. 

The color is a mix of blue and black fibers that give it that dark blue shade. In some photos, the wig looked actually black and on strong light it looked blue.
I really like the color, specially since I haven't owned a wig of this color in years! It's very pretty looking.

Considering it's a Radu wig, it makes sense for it not to be very thick, so his turban and hats fit the cosplayer's head properly.

So... is this wig really worth the price listed on the website? Well, you gotta think for yourself. Just like to any other comissioner, you pay for the wig, the styling and the shipping. I believe the price-quality relation is very good and the wig is very affordable in case you do not know how to style your wigs.
I am very bad at wig styling, so this was a jackpot for me and I couldn't be happier! 

Here are some more photos I took of this wig with my cellphone!

If you're looking for a store that sells quality costumes and wigs, I honestly do recommend you CosplayHouse. They have great feedback and communication, however, you need to order your items way before you need them because their processing time is a little slower than usual.

But it's totally worth the wait!
