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


  1. thanks for uploading photos of the Honoo lenses! :DD
    It's too bad that they're not the vibrant colour you were looking for, but they still look and photograph beautifully.
    Actually, I think this subdued mauve colour would be great for characters like Karuta. This colour is so hard to find! ; A ;

    1. whaaaa thanks for looking! I'm glad this could be of some service~ (T 0 T)/
      and yes a little disappointing~ but you are right they are photographed pretty nicely :D and I never noticed but your right!? \(+ A +)/*kiran~* it could work for Karuta-chan~ Muahahahahahahaha~
      thank you~<3<3<3 you just made me like this color more :3 :3

  2. If you're looking for a bright, vibrant red, I highly recommend Dolly+ Red lenses. They show up beautifully on dark eyes and have a really pretty pattern too! I love mine (: They come in prescription too!

    1. ohhhhh actually I've been looking at them!!!! on a site you just made me buy them!!! XD XD lol! huzzah to prescription~<3 I was very iffy about getting another red pair but you and someone else recommended Dolly+ so it's probably really awesome xD thank you Aki-san~ :3
