UNIQSO's Okumura Rin & Tsurumaru Kuninaga wig review

Hello~
I took my time with this review, since I wanted to style these wigs accordingly and do a proper costest of the characters I will be using them for.

Both of the following wigs are from UNIQSO and you can get 10% off your order with the coupon code "Mashetato"! Make sure to check it out!

The first wig is their Okumura Rin wig. I have already gotten this wig once before, but since I styled it in a very different way, I wanted to get it again and try it out for another character! 

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

I got this wig to cosplay Akira from Persona 5 game. I thought that the amoung of hair it has and the length would be perfect for my favourite protagonist!


The lenses I'm using here are also from UNIQSO and you can find the review here.
I have astigmatism, so I'm not sure how useful my lens reviews are~. I shouldn't even be wearing circle lenses, but I like using them for the photoshoots, so there's that.


The wig is quite fluffy and full, but not too much to make your head look huge.
The fibers are soft, heat resistant and fall very nicely.


The styling of this wig was fairly easy, since all I had to do was use my hair iron and twist the hair in a little. Then I used hair gel and placed it on the tips! 
I didn't have to cut the wig nor did I have to remove/add any wefts. This can actually save you hours of work! 
Getting a good base wig is important! 


The wig has a slightly natural shine to it. If styled properly, it could even be used as a daily fashion item.

Next, there's the Tsurumaru wig!


Processing Time: 3 - 4 working days
Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Silver Gray
Wig Length: 40cm

Tsurumaru... do I want to cosplay him? Yes. Will I cosplay him? Maybe. 
This character's costume is fairly easy to make with my skills, but I'm very limited when it comes to time to sew, so for now, I will be using this wig for Nio from Prince of Tennis!


I think that some time ago, UNIQSO had a wig for Nio, but for some reason it disappeared? 
I'm glad they had this wig in stock, since it's pretty perfect for my trickster boy!
The fibers are very soft and easy to style. The spiking took me less than 20 minutes and all I had to do was use the hair iron, twist the tips out and apply a little hair gel to the tips. 


The wig is layered and it has a good amount of hair. I'm pretty satisfied with it.
The base is very nice and I didn't have to cut it at all! I really dislike cutting wigs, so I really value a good length wig.


The wig is not shiny, but I cannot say this is an item you can wear daily? Well, if you are brave enough, then go ahead!



I hope this review was useful! 
See you all next time~
