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.

Thanks for reading!

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!

RulerCosplay's Mikasa Ackerman wig review

Hello! 
I'm a little late with this review, but I'm not very good at styling wigs, so it took me quite some time...


Material: Heat Resistant Fiber
Color: Black
Length: 35 cm
Lead Time: 1-3 Days
Weight(kg): 0.24 kg


The wig was shipped real quick, but it took some time to arrive. Make sure to order a month or two before you need your wig from this store so it arrives in time! 

The quality of the fibers is very nice, but I'm not sure the wig is very their long wigs are. It has a lot of volume thanks to the styling, but the thickness on the back is very little. 


Despite not being very thick, the wig has enough fibers, so you don't have to worry about your hair showin underneath. 


The wig is not shiny, which is great. Darker wigs tend to be slightly shiny, so you can tell it's not real hair. This one seems to have a natural shine to it.


The wig is heat resistant, which makes it easy to straighten or to curl.
The wig is very easy to style, but the parting might be a little difficult due to the cap construction...!


Overall, I'm quite satisfied with this wig! I'd love if they had it in different colors so I could use one for Shinji from Prince of Tennis!

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~
