Outfits

Oh yes, went out and brought some new things! I got to take advantage of Charlie’s student discount (hohoh thank you) and brought a couple of things!

My outfit of the day.

First thing I got recently was a new jacket from Primark. It was only £30, but it fits really well for a cheaper one. I’ve wanted a decent black jacket for a while now, so snatched this one up.

I’ve also acquired a Topman waistcoat, something else I have been after. That was £20, which is a bit pricier, but after trying on a Primark brand, the one I got fits so much better. Also in the Topman spend I got a hat, cause I am a sucker for hats. Topshop, in the main section, had a beautiful fur collar, which had to be got. I really have been after dressy-uppy things recently so it felt like a good haul.

H&M had some fantastic striped black and dark grey trousers and I needed a pair of these too in my life. Unfortunately they only have women’s versions but..men’s fashion is so boring in the UK, that I thought hell to it. They fit, that is the important thing. Charlie treated me to some cute Halloween-esque badges too :3.

Whilst in the Rag Market in Brum too, we stumbled across a new stall called Little Italy. Charlie has a bit of info on them from his latest blog post here, but I fell in love with this shirt, which can easily be used for some sort of..VK, or EGA or something costumey. Again, sadly it is going to have to be taken in at the bust, as it is fitted for women, but it is cool and zips up so no weird sided buttons or anything.
I would really check them out if you are into mori-kei and the like cause their clothing was perfect for such a thing. The price was cheap, especially for somewhere which sources from the same place as All Saints. Norma who we were talking to is a darling who is very much into quality for affordability. The clothing is all from Italy (hence the name), and they have a lot of asymmetrical and layered styles in.

The quality of the shirt itself is good, I mean it is nice and thick, and soft, but also has a decent amount of stretch. You can tell they are made to fit really well, and very slimming.

This was tonight’s sort of look with myself, trying to hide the fact I have a cold, and Charlie did some pics for me so I can write about shizzle!

Also bagged some Chinese goodies from the supermarket…

Makeup – Mana

Whist I am doing stuff on the blog I thought I would babble on about doing Mana (of Malice Mizer, Moi Dix Mois fame) makeup. I haven’t done anything based around him for about 10 years, so I was kinda wondering if I could still do it. I wish I had a better camera at hand to take better pics for this as I realise putting them on the PC how grainy they are but…hey ho. I promise I will stop using my iPhone at some stage and use my proper camera…

I have used for this!:

Gothverine lol.

I’m quite happy I could still do it to some extent! I just wish I had a few better wigs for this kinda thing. Oh well! Malice Mizer cosplays may be on the horizon once again!

Wig Review – eBay seller “Zing-Vogue”

Firstly if any of you are reading from my wordpress blog, hello to my new self hosted site! (Even though I am still using WordPress ohoho).

Anyway, enough of that.

I was looking for a wig suitable for the Havi cosplay that should be happening next year sometime. I know its early but damn I really like wigs. I was after a fairly long, silver/grey wig, with some slight curling at the bottom. I came across this one in pink and I was pretty gutted, I don’t think I’ll ever need a pink wig. I thought I would ask the seller if they had any in grey/silver!

This is where I will happily recommend this shop. The seller contacted me straight away (give or take the time zone difference), and told me they would check their warehouse. The came back to me, offering me two different wigs in colours I might want (and attached pictures).  I happily asked for the darker grey one, and they said it would take about a week to get it in stock, they would let me know when it arrived.

Literally a week later they did inform me, and had put it up to buy in that colour on eBay. I nabbed it, and it was shipped very quickly. Now, I ordered this on 14/09/13, and I was expecting to receive it after London Expo (late October).  I got the item late September. I was actually quite excited on how fast this took to arrive.

So, the seller is brilliant. What about the product?

Free wig caps are always welcome!

Slapped on some suitable Havi face-paint lol.

The wig is thick, and soft. It is a really nice shade of grey/silver, and it is weighty too (I am a fan of weighty wigs). As it has been in a bag for so long though the curls are very compact, so will have to wear it to shake them out a bit. Also, I think I could of done with it a little longer, but otherwise it is a lovely wig and a welcome addition to the false hair family I have.

I cannot stress enough how much I would recommend Zing-Vogue as an eBay seller. They really helped me out, and have supplied a good product I am happy to wear, use, and talk about. I will be buying from them again myself, as I have just noticed some new wigs on their store…
