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…

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?

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…
