Wig Review Post

Sorry I have been meaning to do other things and I have already slacked on my Sunday thing I am  a bad blogger lol anyway..I wanted to get a review in of all the wigs that arrived from Taobao recently! I have taken very bad pics of myself in all of them, sorry! But I just got so excited I had to try them on.

I use Taobaonow as shipping company from Taobao, recommended to me by Charlie, they seem to be the easiest company to use. They are really friendly too!

Also these were damn cheap.

The shops I have brought from are:

Lingyisun
FML Cosplay
xiaolaoshu1122 (which is Lucialle)

Both of these are from Lingyisun. The quality is fantastic to be honest. The original image of the brown one showed it to be a little more orange though, sadly. But I would say that is the only fault from this shop. The blue wig, I CANNOT STRESS enough how GOOD the quality of this is. The gradient effect is done beautifully, and it is only going to need a bit of trimming. This has easily shot upto one of the best wigs I own.

This one is from FML cosplay. It is thick but needs a bit of playing with to get both sides to flair out. (For the character I have in mind it’ll need trimming too, but which wigs don’t?). It also seems a bit blonde in certain light.

The blue wig again is FML cosplay, the colour is gorgeous, but will need a fair bit of styling to sit right. The black one above is from lingyisun and whilst perhaps it isn’t the best wig in this bulk, it is really good value for money.

The top bob is FML cosplay again, and doesn’t quite look the same as the image, but it is a really nice wig for dressing up sake. The top side parting is xiaolaoshu1122; Charlie had one of these for cosplay and it is such a gorgeous wig I had to get one for having sake. The quality and thickness is amazing. The last wig is at the bottom, and worn in the outfit I have posted. It can pretty much be styled by playing with it, as you can see, it is pretty cool. That one is xiaolaoshu1122 also.

Seriously all in all there are some amazing wigs now sitting in my wig box. I would love to order more…

Sunday Service: H&M Grey Concept

Sunday service is going to be a scheduled weekly post I do (on a Sunday, obviously!), showing all the interesting clothing pieces I have found over the week.
This week I am going to be focusing on H&M’s Grey Concept. I have picked this one first due to the fact the H&M store I work in have decided I am the Grey Concept ambassador due to wearing it so much! If you are into more unusual pieces, Korean style and “Goth Ninja” I would say check out this concept. A lot of the pieces have much more unusual cuts and shapes than the average high street shops (in the UK). Also I would say a lot of it can be worn unisex.

Shopping Haul

Long time no see everyone! I have been so pre-occupied with the new job and life in general that I have neglected here a little bit! So I am gonna start the new year of blogging off with a “what I brought over the last few months, and mostly in the last month” post. I have been busy buying to be honest, a lot of it is sale material though so it was pretty cheap.

OK! Lets start with the fact the majority of stuff I have brought is H&M, the staff discount is honestly dangerous…it is mainly grey concept I will be honest cause let’s face it, it is the best hahah.

IMG_2031 IMG_2028 IMG_2032
Mainly grey colours huh? The scarf has a hood attached which is cool! The funnel neck top I was eyeing up for ages…

IMG_2039
I also found this coat in black. I got the blue version as a gift, and now I have two! It’s really comfy, and looks cool.

IMG_2048 IMG_2049
Some more H&M grey concept and a couple of shirts from River Island sale. Seriously, look at the print!
IMG_2050
How cool is that?

IMG_2034 IMG_2036 IMG_2035
IMG_2037 IMG_2041 IMG_2045
A cool red and black raglan from Topman, haven’t worn it yet as the weather is a bit naff really. The white shirt in the middle is from Taobao, it can be tied in a big bow and I wanna use it when I do a sort of Kodona/Ouji piece, eventually. The ripped jeans are also Taobao. The waistcoats are from H&M and Topman (and the shorts), and jackets are H&M and Primark.

IMG_2029 IMG_2027 IMG_2044
IMG_2043
Most of the accessories are H&M, Topman and River Island. The scarf is, well…Diesel. The bag is from a cheap shop in Birmingham!

This beautiful All Saints passport cover is a gift (along with the passport lol!) from lovely Charlie, so this year we will be travelling outside of England! The rest is H&M again, more for costume things rather than day to day stuff.

On the subject of costume things, I have been buying stuff for that too.

IMG_2040 IMG_2042 IMG_2038
The capes are Tesco and Debenhams, the trousers are Ann Summers and the bat top is Killstar! This is for my more dressy uppy wardrobe, and will probably see the goth clubs a fair bit.
IMG_2051
Also H&M and Topman, a horrendous fur coat which will work wonders for certain cosplay characters, and bat leggings and a pumpkin top. Uh, Halloween cast offs. Who cares if it is in the “girl” section?

IMG_2054
Also some Dune boots, New Look and Primark. I swear the bat leggings and red boots, capes…I may as well just cosplay Noel Fielding.

So, below are some pics of me wearing the new stuff, cause to be honest I don’t look good to wear it right now, hahah I am almost in bed!

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!

IMG_6669
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.

1209278_490118394417942_1125967423_n 1384312_490118221084626_1852789588_n
1378799_490118261084622_864978807_n

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?

IMG_6552
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…

Review – HobbyFx.co.uk Fangs

I have had these fangs since 2009, and they have lasted me well. When I wear them I always get asked where I got them from as they do look realistic, so I will give all the information out here!
Now, I like dressing up as vampires. Or demons. Or things that may have fangs.
I have tried the Scarecrow style fangs before, with the putty you use, and I had honestly no joy. They fall out, they get lost, they didn’t fit my teeth in all honesty. I find they also don’t quite match the colour of natural teeth. I know for some people they work fine, but I was after something a little more realistic.

HobbyFX I was really interested in due to the way they are made, and how they fit. Basically, you get a pack to make a mould of your teeth, send it back to the company, and they will create a unique set of teeth specifically designed to fit your mouth. They then just..”clip” in! It is a veneer which covers all the front teeth, which helps in looking natural.
1236533_486419424787839_2058397537_n
I remember doing the moulding was fairly easy, you had to heat it up into a sausage shape, press it against your teeth for a few moments, then remove, and let it dry.
The fangs themselves do take a bit of getting used to, but once you do, you can wear them for hours, drink in them, eat in them (to a certain extent), and most importantly, speak with hardly any difference.

The guy who owns the company is really helpful and lovely to deal with.
Now, the price has gone up since I got mine, but not really that bad still for what you are getting. I want to order from them again, and they also offer custom designs. They also offer a monthly payment plan, which is really useful I think.
They also do prosthetics and the like, but to me I think the fangs are the best thing about the shop.
Please check them out if you are after a good set of teeth!
