Ruler Cosplay's Haruki Naoshi wig & Klenspop's Bunny Color E22 Aqua

A little late with this review thanks to the customs and my lack of time, but I finally managed to do it without rushing!

I got this wig from Ruler Cosplay.
Material: Heat Resistant Fiber
Color: Brown
Length: 32 cm
Lead Time: 1-3 Days
Weight(kg): 0.25 kg

The wig arrived pretty fast to my country, but it stayed at customs and at the post office for about a month, hence why I'm posting this review with a delay,
The customer service of the store was very good and they shipped the wig in less than a week! I was amazed!



The wig I received looks just as on the product photo! It's very thick and it's heat resistant. However, I'd have to say the color is not exactly brown, but an orangeish brown.


The wig is easy to style and pretty nice for the character it was designed for, however I feel like it's not a wig for characters with a fluffy hair, since the thickest  part of the wig is the back of it. This is actually good since it hides your hair very well under it.


Overall, I'm very satisfied with this wig and would recommend it if you're looking for a slightly natural color. The wig is not shiny, so it can also be worn as a fashion item on daily basis! 

The lenses I wore here are from Klenspop and it's their Bunny Color E22 Aqua model.

DIA: 14.3mm
Graphic DIA: 14mm
BC: 8.8mm
Using Period: 6month
Water Contect: 38%
Manufacturer: LENSPOP
Origin: KOREA
Package: 1 PAIR (2 pcs) + BONUS CASE

Just as the description says, the lenses arrived with a lens case. 
The lenses are very comfortable. I've decided to wear them a few times before doing this review and I am amazed! The lenses look beautiful and are incredibly comfortable.
I've always looked for lenses of this color or darker blue for my cosplays and I feel like these are the perfect ones! 


They do look a little strange for natural looks, but they are very pretty for cosplay photos and I really recommend them both for light and dark eyes in case you're looking to cosplay a character with dark blue eyes! 

Make sure to check these stores out!

UNIQSO's Touhou Project Mima & Fate/Grand Order Gankutsuou wig review

Hello!
I took a little longer than expected with this review, but here it is!

I purchased 2 wigs from Uniqso once more. Since they are meant to me styled properly for the cosplays they are for, I didn't do much to them for the review.

The wigs I got are the following:

    

I got their Mima and Gankutsuou wig.
They are both described as heat resistant.

The wigs were shipped to me quickly and were packed safely. 


Mima's wig is 100cm long and is quite thick. It's also heat resistant.

  

The color is very pretty and the wig doesn't feel very heavy on my head. It does get very tangled and that's a big problem for me, but it's nothing that cannot be fixed.
I am not a fan of long wigs because they are uncomfortable to wear, but this one's quite light on my head, so that helps a lot.

 

The wig needs some styling because it has been packed in a bag for a while, but since it's heat resistant, it's gonna be easy to fix.
This wig is also great in case you're looking to make a short wig since you can cut it and use the cutout fibers for the extra wefts!


And this is how the top looks like!

 

As for the Gankutsuou wig, I'm really impressed with it! It looks like granny's hair, but it's very fluffy and easy to style. 
The wig is really cute and would look very cool with a lolita outfit!

 

The wig is heat resistant and it's pretty thick. The way it's sewn makes it easy to style in any direction.
The color is quite matte, so there's no need to worry about annoying shine to the wig.

 

I'm really satisfied with both of these wigs. They are really pretty and quite light on my head.
Uniqso was super kind to ship this order before I went to vacations, so it arrived just in time.
Their customer service never disappoints!

UNIQSO's Lolita Wig 097A and Sayo Samonji wig review

Posting two reviews in one post because it's easier for me to organize stuff this way~!

I got two wigs from Uniqso. I intend to modify them a lot for characters I need them for, so I didn't style them much asides from a little hairspray. 



They are both labeled as heat resistant wigs, meaning they can stand heat up to 180ÂșC.

So, here's the review:


The wigs got shipped to me by FedEx and were delivered to me within 5 days and I didn't have to pay any customs fees!
Where I live, FedEx is the best service for the quick shipment.


Inside the FedEx bag, there was a black package with the wigs inside it.
The size of it is quite big, so if it had arrived by regular mail, I'm sure it'd get stuck at customs for at least 2 months.


Inside the black package, there were the wigs. They were in separate plastic bags and were packed carefully. 
The cardboard around them prevents the wigs from getting damaged. I usually use this cardboard for the wigs that are styled and the wigs I don't want to lose their shape. It's very handy!


Starting with the Lolita wig: this wig is made of 2 colors. There's green on the lower parts of the wig and brown on the top. It's not an usual wig, so I find this combination really interesting.


The fibers on top are a mix of various shades of brown, making the color look very natural.
If styled properly, this wig could be used for your daily looks!


The only flaw I could see here is that the green fibers don't show much on the back, but that could be fixed with some trimming on the brown fibers.


The wig is heat resistant and the top is very easy to style.

__

Moving to the Samonji wig: 


This wig comes with a regular base and two clip on ponytails.
It's a very interesting wig since it can be used for another characters as well!


The color of this wig is a mix of various shades of blue, making the color quite unique. 
I acually prefer wigs with mixed fibers since they tend to change color under different lights and that can give you some very interesting photos!


The base wig is quite long, so you have a lot of hair to work with!
If this wig were to be used for the actual character it was designed for, then the wig would need a lot of styling and some cutting. 


As you can see, the base is quite long, so for it to work for the character it's designed for, there will be a need for some serious styling! 
However, if you like styling your own wigs, then this is not an issue to worry about.


The top of this wig limits you with the hairstyles you can do, but, since the ponytails are easy to remove, you're not limited to a single character!

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!
