it's been a very very long time m(_ _m;;) gomenasai~

I'm sorry for the long time no update or anything!
I've been wallowing in the reality of our worlds current financial state aka my current financial state OTL it's hard to make enough of a living, to continue living, while cosplaying of course! xD;; sigh~
well I've already steeled my heart and wallet for this = A = fare thee well future cosplays~ it'll just take another extra year or two to complete you~ I'm pretty sure my face can hold out till at most 30's ;D I've got a good 9-10 years left :P

Anyways~ oh to the good stuff~ >:D
today I bring to you some new products I've been using~ here's a quick break down of them:
>New eyeliner from MAC(and make up style)
>New Wig
>New colored contacts~

So tonight I will be giving my reviews on these products
so on wards!!! to the details~!!!!

First off~
as usual I'll be starting off with the wig~
but first the character the wig is for! >:3
TaDa~ Yurippe From Angel Beats!
I am a huge fan of Angel Beats! Love the series Loved ALL OF THE CHARACTERS<3 I choose yurippe for the sake of her awesomeness and for the sake I am using her for a skit planned for next year Anime North 2013 :3 :3 I got her wig way ahead of time for motivational purposes ;D

Here are some pictures of the wig when I just got it in<3

I enhanced the brightness so the actual color is darker in regular lights. but if put under bright lights it's pretty close to the picture ;D

NOTE: sorry I look pretty sullen in the picture, it's been a while xD;;

not so sullen ^u^

From the top~

Here are the last two before my over all rating review on the wig~ (^ 0 ^)/

Ok~! all done with the wig tests :3 :3 for yurippe~ if some have not noticed the character actually has shorter hair than than the wig I have so I will be chop-chopping this T 0 T;;
sadly I hate cutting wigs but this is the safest way I've learned to assure a guarantee on how I want the style to turn out to be OTL plus it's just cheaper OTL;;;; lol so yes onwards to the over all reivew~ :D

Color: Purple red (close to wine red but more of a red with hints of a colder purple)
Length:  60cm loosely
Wig Style: straight, long bangs
Description: bangs were described as doll cut but came long, which I am happy about cause I like to style and personally messy up my wig myself xD the color was pretty accurate I'd say it's not as purple as I had hoped but it was better than I had expected :).  Style wise it's, nice not to thin, all around straight consistent make, it doesn't tangle easily despite it's length o , o very nice and smooth feeling<3

Where I Bought it From:
Source: Ebay
Seller: 2262128 (99.5-%)
Price at time:  $19.00 CAD (sale) orig. 20.00 (not much of a sale lol)
I'm pretty satisfied with the wig honestly speaking I had not expectations at all almost, but when it came in I was pretty happy :) it turned out to be a nice color and length the picture was not described accurately = A = as I had expected but still the gamble came out with a decent result I think I'd like to try my luck again with the seller :D


!!!!!!!!!!NOW ON TO THE CONTACT LENSES!!!!!!!! :D

 *This is the first time I had Bought contacts online before it was thanks to a friend's recommendation to this site:

Honestly speaking I was VERY skeptical of buying CONTACTS online because there are many risks and warning etc... but since this friend recommended this site, and after doing the research many other seems to agree that this company was trust worthy and good~ so I decided to give it a shot~
and the results were not bad~ the first pair I got came in about 4 weeks after I ordered it normal time for shipping to Canada from anywhere in the Eastern Asian areas xD
The pair I got:

"Honoo Red Circle Lens"

****Here's a terrible picture i did sorry for the bad quality it's the first time I tried it and it came out pretty bad T A T;;;; but I didn't have time to do a re-take OTL so please bare with and pray I get better xD;;*****

This picture was taken when I had florescent lighting, the contacts look a very pretty dark, almost natural mauve-like color, much better for everyday looks, rather than cosplay I think.

I'll be following a similar format I usually do for Wigs to review the lenses~ :3

Color: Red (prescribed)

Brand:  Honoo
Comfort: 7/10

Seller: Candylens
Price: 20.90 USD + 6.00 USD shipping (26.90USD)

Description: I was very disappointed about the color.  In the pictures they are described as a much more vibrant deep red T A T when I got them they looked very pink/purple, and when I wore them it became a mauvey, maroon like color, it's a lovely color but not what I was looking for OTL
I'd recommend this for everyday use, many ppl like the color and told it almost looked natural xD; which isn't bad :D
Comfort wise, I can wear them for around 8-9 hours at most but after 5 hours they get pretty dry and uncomfortable like most contacts.  which isn't had other than that I haven't really had any issues, other than the colors = A =;;

Other Comments: The sellers Candylens are very nice people! they send you a free contact lens case with the contacts, and the entire package it's self it very neatly done, so no harm comes to the contacts or the present! and even nicer the send you a sweet personalized hand written thank you note xD I found that very kind of them xD not many people can put for that kind of effort for such considerate good service xD

Over all Rating: 7.5/10

Natsume Zange-sama from the anime and manga series called; Inu x Boku SS
Natsume Zange<3

I still haven't really done anything for this cosplay~ the bunny ears are still in making the suit is easy enough to make/get it's not that hard so there's not much work~ :3 :3 tee hee~

I must admit I've wanted to try to take an open shirt shot for a while u , u;; it's quite embarrassing OTL lol

K! That's all~ I've been spamming red EVERYWHERE<3<3<3 thanks to this wig~ as some may have noticed this is the same curly red wig I had in my previous post! I finally took the time and straightened it with a hot iron straighter :3 :3
The results are quite satisfactory~

Straightening is always easier than curling a wig OTL oh gosh my elizabeth wig is going though hell atm sigh~ oh well that's for another post~ tee hee~

Mello~! :3 :3

Hello~ Hello~ and greetings to all :D
today err...tonight I have redness for you tonight~<3
I have been drunk on the fact I got into Sheridan but thanks to that tuition fee I'm plenty sober now = A =;;; to sober that I might need to get drunk for real OTL lol well leaving that aside for now~ let move onto the the review~!!

Introducing my New red wig<3 
I've always wanted one<3
it's a lovely shade of red<3
It's actually for a special secret cosplay~ I hope to dish out later in sunnier times~ :D ohohohohoh~~ but for the time being I need to put some major work into it + A + mUahahah~<3 anyways now on to some more shots of the wig~ :D

NOTE: the photos have been photoshopped to bring out the most color in the wig it's pretty dark with regular room lighting but it's a lovely vivid shade of red in real sun light of good lighting of the sort

Color: Pure Medium Red.
Length:  60cm loosely
Wig Style: Curly ends
Description: It's a ABSOLUTELY lovely shade of red, there's no awkward plastic shine to the fibers, the curls are lovely as well.  The only thing I could really even complain about was how thin it was but for that price it's totally excusable! 

Where I Bought it From:
Source: Ebay
Seller: Betterdeals255 (Ebay-99%)
Price at time:  $12.69 CAD
I reeeeeeeaaaalllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyy like it~  I had been eying it for a good time but that price makes you think its to good to be true, but coincidentally. A good friend recommended it to me, i saw how look looked on her and had to give it a shot!  and the results were awesome~ :D  It's just like the picture the seller shows surprisingly so it's a pretty safe buy it you want a nice simple red wig to play with~ :D
