Miccostume's Kuroo Tetsurou cosplay review

I took ages to post this review, but my camera took broken photos and I had to calibrate the colors of each photo individually... 
It was a tough job, but next time I will use a different camera and hope for the best.

So, here's a review on the costume I got from Miccostumes! You can check the product here. It currently has free shipping and it costs only $19.99!

So, firstly, the costumes from Miccostumes tend to have a really nice quality and always correspond to the size chart. I've gotten quite some costumes from them over the years and I'm glad to bring you this review.

Kuroo's cosplay is made out of synthetic sports fabric. It's very light and fresh to wear. It has an accurate print of the stripes of his jersey and the number printing is real nice.

I got the biggest size, since I wanted it to be comfy, but it's actually a perfect size!
The shorts are real nice and short, so there's no need to worry about me needing to cut them.
When I cosplayed Hinata, I had to fold my shorts so they would look accurate... It was a pain.

Here's a closeup for you to see how clean the print is. 
I'd like you to know that this fabric is also possible to iron and it doesn't melt nor does it get stiff, but be careful to use low heat with it. This is synthetic fabric after all...

As you can see, the shorts are quite short. 
I think the costume is quite accurate, except for a tiny flaw: the shoulders don't have the two black stripes they need. I don't think this is a problem, considering the whole costume is well made and well printed. I can always add the stripes on the shoulders later on!

Above all, the costume is really comfortable and nice to wear in hot weather. I'm looking forward to wearing it soon and having a photoshoot in it. 

The costume was shipped to me real fast via EMS shipping. It didn't go to customs, which is a blessing considering my country is terrible with importing stuff outside of EU.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the costume I got and I highly recommend you to check Miccostumes in case you're looking for a cosplay costume or a character wig. They have a big variety of cosplays and are quick to reply to assist you!

Ruler Cosplay's Judy wig review

I struggle with short white/silver wigs. I'm never able to find a good one to use for my cosplays without the need of styling it so much...
I found this wig at Ruler Cosplay's store and I got it, thinking it would be good.

Material: Heat Resistant Fiber
Color: Grey
Length: 32 cm

The wig looks like this:

I was surprised with how pretty it actually looked up close. The color is very pretty and it doesn't have the plastic shine many synthetic wigs have. 
I feel like I could use this wig on daily basis.

The back is trimmed nicely and it is thick enough so your hair doesn't show under it, but you might want to find a way to cover your neck nair since the wig might not cover it very well... 

As described, the wig is heat resistant and it has a really nice quality to it.

The top of the wig makes it easy to style for many characters with similar hair length!

After going through so many white wigs, I am gonna set for this one. It's one of the best wigs I own and I'm really in love with it!

The customer service of this store is very nice. They are quick to reply and to ship the items, so I really do recommend it in case you're looking for a good wig.

The product photos correspond to what you really get, so make sure to check it out!

UNIQSO's Yoshino Chiaki Wig Review

It's review time!
I got Uniqso's Yoshino Chiaki wig that for some reason doesn't look like that character's wig and it has Fuji's image there too.
Don't let their titles fool you! Trust the product images.

Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Brown
Wig Length: 32cm

So, as a big Prince of Tennis nerd, I've been looking for a wig I could use for Fuji. I was really worried this wig would look orangeish so I never actually got it until I found another character I could use it for and would have no regrets over getting this wig.

The wig came unstyled, of course. It needs trimming and styling, but the color is beautiful. The wig is thick and really soft. It feels really natural.

With a little styling, I think this wig would work really well for Uraraka from Boku no Hero Academia.
I love her to bits and would definitely get a same wig as this if I were to cosplay her.

The wig is heat resistant up to 180ÂșC, so there's no need to worry when it comes to styling of it. It's seems quite easy to style, but thanks to the way the top of the wig is made, your styling will be limited.

The color is brown, so don't think that you will get an orangeish wig or reddish brown. It's solid brown that might look slightly warmer under certain camera settings and light.
