Circle Lens Review – Vassen Cloud Nine Blue

Vassen Cloud Nine Blue circle lens review from Pinkyparadise:

I think in bright, direct natural light these lenses look ~Amazing~, but unfortunately, in most other lighting, they look kinda dark on me. ^^; I’ve seen other reviews where they look really vibrant, but I guess my eyes are just difficult, lol.

These could have been my new favorite blue lenses if only they had been a little brighter~

Wig Review ~ 31″ Pink Curly from Amazon

Hey there!  So, this wig was kindly given to me in exchange for my review on it, which I’m sharing down below!

You can purchase the wig here: http://www.amazon.com/Curly-Vocaloid-Megurine-Cosplay-Extension/dp/B00K8048WI/ref=sr_1_186?ie=UTF8&qid=1422525073&sr=8-186&keywords=pink+curly+Anime+Cosplay+Wig

Here are a few pictures of me wearing it:

My thoughts: Very lovely wig! The color is very “milkshake pink”, in that it’s a creamy solid pink with a slight dusty rose cool tone. The curls are very defined, so if you want a more wavy look, I’d suggest brushing it out before wearing. I didn’t do anything to it, so in the pictures I took, this was fresh out of the bag.

The bangs are your pretty standard chin-length straight bangs that you can cut or part however you please. The thickness seems great overall, and the cap of the wig fit my above-average sized head with thick long hair. The fiber is very soft and seems resistant to tangling, but I would recommend spraying it down with wig conditioner/Motions just as a cautionary measure if you are going to be wearing the wig for a while.

Circle Lens Review – Vassen Rainbow Eyes – Grayish Blue

Watch my video review of these lenses on YouTube:

I purchased these lenses from Pinkyparadise~
Vassen Rainbow Eyes – Grayish Blue:  http://www.pinkyparadise.com/Vassen-Rainbow-Eyes-Grayish-Blue-p/e14-grey.htm

Review:

Lens diameter: 14.5mm (for Plano)
Comfort: 8.5/10 – very easy to put in your eyes. Feels dry after a few hours of wear, however.
Enlargement: Pretty good for 14.5mm. Suggested for cosplay or Lolita wear.
Color/Design: Not completely opaque, but the color still shows up pretty well. The outer rim color is a nice gray/blue with golden brown flecks closer to the center. Fades to your natural eye color in the center.  Gives eyes a marbled/opalescent effect.

Costume Review – Babydoll – Costume SuperCenter

Hey everyone!

So, a while back, I was contacted by Costume SuperCenter to review one of their costumes!  They kindly sent me a costume on-the-house in exchange for my review, which unfortunately, has been long overdue due to minor health issues and getting a promotion at my 9-5.  But they have been super sweethearts and patient this entire time!

I’ve been wanting to cosplay as Babydoll since the movie first came out, but have been too busy/prioritizing other costumes to actually make her costume.  So, I decided to give Costume SuperCenter’s Babydoll costume a go.

Fit: 8/10.  I got a Medium, and both the top and skirt fit without any major issues.  The only part that didn’t work was the cuffs on the sleeves – they were too tight on my forearms due to the non-stretch ribbon embellishments, so I had to take a seam ripper to those areas.

Fabrics: 6.5/10.  The fabric is decent, but it’s the polyester to be expected of a mass-produced costume.  However, it’s got a nice matte finish that photographs all right even under flash.  It is not the screen accurate distressed denims and linens, though.

Craftsmanship: 7/10.  The seams are durably sewn, and the hems are finished.  There were a few loose threads here and there, along with a couple of seams that didn’t quite match up (sleeves).

Details: 6/10.  The ribbon on the middy collar and skirt are uneven and wobbly in some areas.  The neckline is also too low-cut for my liking.

However, the belt is pretty nice and includes an antiqued gold buckle.  Black thigh highs are also included, as is the headband.

I also received her sword that goes with this costume, and am pleased with it as a prop!  It’s light-weight plastic and has Babydoll’s illustration/design neatly printed on the blade.  I still need to photograph it, hur hur.

As for service, Costume SuperCenter was super professional the entire time.  They patiently waited for me to pick out what costume I wanted (they have a ton!), and when I picked Babydoll, they shipped it to me extremely quickly!  The costume got to me within a couple of days.

Lens Review – GBT Violet

PinkyParadise kindly sponsored me a pair of lenses!

I chose G&G GBT Violet for my upcoming Daenerys Targaryen costume.

I’ve tried GBT’s in Green before, and thought the effect would work well for Daenerys.  While these aren’t the best choice for Anime cosplay, they work wonderfully for Dany, whose eyes are a bit more realistic-looking (blue in the TV series, violet in the books).

Color: 8/10 – not opaque, and not super vibrant.  These will blend in with your natural eye color while giving a noticeable change.  Violet shows up better than Green, in my experience.

Enlargement: 6/10 – These enlarge maybe a tiiiiny bit (which is what I was going for).  Diameter is listed as 14.5 – seems more like 14 or 14.2, which is standard for non-circle lenses.  Not your lenses if you want Huge Ugguu Anime Eyes.

Comfort: 10/10 – VERY comfortable.  I couldn’t feel them after putting them in, and the smaller size makes them easy to put on/take out.

PinkyParadise is probably my favorite place to order lenses from due to their huge selection and good service!  Shipping took a few weeks, but that is about the same for any overseas lens sellers.
