UNIQSO's Sweety Colorful Rio Blue & Sweety Lily Black lens review

It's been a while since I made a post here~

I'm posting a review on two pair of lenses I got from UNIQSO

Both of these lenses have the following characteristics:
Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm

The lenses were shipped to me by FedEx and they arrived within a couple of days to my address. 
They are shipped inside a bubblewrapped envelope and are stores inside a plastic/flat container. This is a much safer way to store the lenses. The glass bottles can break during the transport.

There's a possibility of the lenses getting stuck to the corner of these plastic containers tho, so for that I highly recommend you to read this article to know what to do in that case.

The grey lenses are incredibly comfortable and are great to make light eyes look larger, adding a natural colored rim around it and making them look bigger and brighter! 

I found that these lenses are well suited for my cosplay of Yusuke Kitagawa, hence why I decided to costest him for the sake of this review.

Since these lenses are very small when it comes to the design size and are very little opaque when it comes to color, I do not recommend them to people who have dark eyes, unless you are looking for lenses you can wear everyday and look natural with them! 

The blue lenses on the other hand are still very comfortable, but they seem a little ugly for the bright eyes. The design shows up strangely and it makes my eyes look weird. It's obvious that I have lenses. 
However, for cosplay purposes or photoshoots, I think they are very vibrant and interesting. I would actually recommend them to people with dark eyes tho!

As you can see, for cosplay, the lenses look ok! They are very vibrant and blue. I actually really like this design and think they would fit characters with heavier makeup much better.

 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 Sweety Lurve Grey lens review

It's been a while since I've made a lens review here.
 Unfortunately I cannot wear regular circle lenses for too long, so I avoid to do get them at all... I do sometimes make exceptions for photoshoots and such~.

The lenses I got are the Sweety Lurve Grey.
These lenses seem very natural and good for a daily use. They do not have cartoon-ish look to them.

Information on the lenses:
Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Replacement Period: Within 12 months

The lenses, as you can guess, are very comfortable and look amazing on my eyes! 
I have greyish-blue eyes, so wearing this sort of lenses looks very natural! 
I like how the lenses aren't an opaque grey and don't pop out too much as this was the look I was going for! 

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 beautiful 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!

RulerCosplay's Hetalia Antonio & Original Grey Ombre Lolita wig review

2018 just started and I still didn't update this blog's theme... I should really take care of it soon! Ha ha-~

Well, to start the year, here's a review on RulerCosplay's wigs!
This time I got two wigs from them and they are both very pretty! 

These wigs were shipped to me right away and they arrived quickly. 
To my surprise, this brand's items never go to customs in my country and that's a huge plus! I'm so happy I can rely on this brand!

Starting with the brown wig: the wig is quite messy and that's thanks to the way it was put inside the bag before shipping. A lot of wig industries store their wigs in a way that causes them to look poofy and wild, BUT that's not a problem at all as it's fairly easy to fix.

As stated in their description, the wig is heat resistant and of brown color. The color looks pretty natural, so if you manage to style it in a way that suits your face, you can even wear this wig out like it's your own hair! 

The wig is thick enough to be spiked and styled in many ways, however it's not poofy enough to make it look huge on your head. 
This wig might be perfect for those who are looking to make a messy hairstyle.

The way the wig is stitched, it gives you the perfect amount of freedom to play with it. The top of the wig doesn't limit you to a certain types of hairstlyles, so you can easily play around with it and restyle it over and over.

Now about the grey wig... I've never had a wig this color before. It's very pretty and it reminds me a lot of Persona 4's protagonist and it looks like it's a great wig for him!

The wig is quite thick and easy to style. It has a good amount of fibers to play around with and to make a number of hairstyles.
I'd not recommend this wig to be spiked too much or used for crazy hairstyles as the fibers are short, but if you join two wigs like this into one, then you might be able to make any hairstyle you'd like!

The wig is layered and it looks like it has a gradient under the natural light despite just being a mix of different color grey fibers.
This gives the wig a naturalish tone. 
The wig is not shiny, so it's very easy to be worn with an alternative outfit!

Ah! The top of the wig makes it easy to comb the wig in any direction. A special touch~!

Do check RulerCosplay out as they have a lot of new wigs and costumes in their store now! 

Thank you for reading!

UNIQSO's Jean Kirstein & Sougo Okita wig review

Hey hey!
Winter's days are so short and dark, it really makes it impossible for me to actually take any decent photos. 
Thankfully, I purchased a small ring light to help me out with that! So far, I'm really liking the results of using it. 

So, with the 2018 around the corner, I should really make an update to this blog's theme as my new year resolution! 

Anyhow, here's the review on the wigs I got this month for two of my cosplays for 2018!


Both of the wigs are heat resistant and they have a processing time of about 3 days.
Both of these wigs will be properly styled for my HiGH&LOW cosplays.

Sougo's wig is going to be used for Cobra and it's going to take a good cut, but for now, here's how it looks unstyled!

The wig is thick and long enough for you to have the freedom to style your own bangs.
If you're scared of cutting the bangs alone, I'd recommend you asking for help because on straight wigs the mistakes are more visible.

Despite being thick, the wig is not fluffy and it might have a "bald spot" when combed to the side, meaning that the wig should be worn with the bangs falling straight down. 
The color is more sandy-greenish than it looks on the photo, but it gives it a natural look, so it's pretty good for the character it was designed for and for Cobra-chan!

So far, this has been one of my favourite wigs from Uniqso, as there's no need for me to style it too much before using it! 

As for the Jean wig... I will style it so I can use it for Jesse!

I've prevously owned a wig like this and, to be honest, it's really nice. 
The wig is thick and very easy to style! I'd recommend curling the tips of the blond part so it looks more natural. The color is very pretty and, when styled properly, it looks like it actually has an undercut.

Jean's wigs are usually ugly, but I find this one really nice and the most accurate to the character. 
The wig also works perfectly for Sangwoo from Killing Stalking, so if you're into that, you should definitely buy it!

I can't wait to get to photoshoot with these wigs.


Thank you all who have contacted me about Uniqso's products over this year. I'm very happy that my friends got to buy wigs and lenses from this store thanks to me! 

Uniqso's actually my favorite wig store right now thanks to the product always corresponding to the photo. It makes the purchase easier and much safer. 

Happy holidays!

UNIQSO's Kazunari Miyoshi & Kuchiki Byakuya wig review

Ahh~ Winter is here! Which means, cold and getting sick for me!
I've been getting quite sickish lately, so it took me a while to get this review done.
It's also very hard to take photos during the winter days... Days are shorter and the light is terrible. 
I want spring to come quickly...

So, I got Kazunari's wig this month so I could (hopefully) cosplay Kuranosuke from Prince of Tennis. It's very cold to do it now tho... *sob*

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

The wigs were shipped to me very quickly and by FedEx. I recommend using their service if you want express delivery and no customs problems! Customs can be a pain to deal with, so choosing FedEx might be your best choice to avoid them~

Excuse the my very little makeup look... It looked better irl than on the photos...

The wig has a very natural blonde color. It's incredibly soft and silky.
The top has quite some hair you can work with and it's already parted to the side, but that can be fixed easily with a little heat in case you're interested in doing another hairstyle with this wig.

The wig can look slightly greenish/yellowish under a warmer light, but it's not really a problem in my opinion since it still keeps a natural color and it has no shine.
The wig is 100% heat resistant, so don't hesitate to style it as you wish! 

I'm not exactly sure that it's a wig you can wear out like a fashion item thanks to the cut, but, if you are willing to work with the styling a little, I'm sure this can be a great wig for your bad hair days!


Next up, it's the Byakuya wig!

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

Long wigs are incredibly hard to photograph on my own, but I tried my best to get decent photos of it...!

This wig is THICK. It is heavy and it has a lot of hair to work with. It's very smooth and easy to comb. The wig gets from little to no knots if you wear it for the day. 
There's not much shine to it, so the wig can look pretty natural. 
The heat resistance makes it easy to style, so don't be afraid to curl it up and make it look even cuter!

The top has a small skintop piece that allows you to make a natural looking parting, but, of course, you need to cut the bangs short if you want it to look like real hair.
The bangs are pretty long, so you can create interesting styles with them! 

I'm extremely satisfied with these wigs that I got. They are pretty natural looking even though I'd not wear them out. They have a lot of fibers, which is good, and are heat resistant.

UNIQSO's Hatsune Miku wig & Yuzuru Nishimiya wig review

Halloween is over, but I still got a wig for it!
Maybe next year I might cosplay Miku~

Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Gold & Green
Wig Length: 120cm

The wig is actually orange and green, but the photo actually speaks for itself, so let's just ignore that.

The wis comes with a base + 2 ponytails.
It's pretty heavy and thick, so there's no need to worry about the wig not having enough fibers for you to work with.
However, since it's long, it tangles a lot! I would recommend you getting some detangling spray or something to prevent your wig from getting damaged and messy.
The green fibers look really beautiful and match well with the orange.

The base wig is a single color, as opposite of the ponytails, which means you can easily use it for another cosplay if you want. 
I intend to use it for Ashikiba Takuto, since the cut and the color is really good for him!

The top of the wig looks like this. It might prevent you from doing any crazy hairstyle, but it works well if you're looking to keep your wig looking flat! 

I really like it!

Material: 100% heat resistant fibre
Wig Color: Black
Wig Length: 30cm

The second wig I got is Yuzuru's short black wig. It's actually a little different from the photo and it doesn't have much hair to it, which is a little worrying...
The quality of the fibers seems cheap and I'm not so sure it can be styled with heat up to the 180ºC, but it can surely be styled with hair iron on 120ºC!

I like how the bangs are longer than in the photo and how it can work for characters with side bangs or with no bangs at all, but doing a middle parting will be impossible thanks to the short and stray hairs this wig has.

The top will prevent you from making any crazy hairstyle and the back of the wig doesn't look that good either. 
I hope some styling will help out with that, but unfortunately this isn't the best wig I got from this store (sorry ;;)...

There is also some shine to the wig, which makes it look quite plastic, but it's nothing that can't be worked out with! It's just not a wig you can easily wear out.

I will post styled wig's photos later on, so please check my facebook page or my instagram for the updates!
