Wig Review: CoserStyle

So this time I bought a red wig for my recent Morgiana cosplay :) Bought it from Mikuchan Goodies! Do check their awesome shop out :)

Photo from Taobao.

In the bag :)
Mikuchan Goodies gives one free wig cap and free (local) shipping in every wig purchase~ :D Cool ne?
Without flash.
With flash.
Not really very shiny but it's smooth and easy to style. Has a cute mini-clip on perfect for Mor's hairstyle. :D

At first they offered me a red wig which I can tie to one side like Mor's. But! I wanted a clip on because it looks cute :3 And saves me the hassle of tying up my wig. Plus, I can remove the clip on and use the base wig for other cosplays. :D

If you're asking, yes it has a tag.
The inside. 
The lace cap inside is tight! O.O It feels really tight around my head so I don't even need to use the adjustable hooks for it to hold. XD I guess.. that's a good thing? Haha :D
The cute mini-clip on! :D
Hahaha :D That clip on caught Ate Zhy's attention during the event. She said it was cute :3 It really is cute!!! Probably because most of the clip ons are used as pigtails so they're kinda huge.

Without the clip on.
Yea. XD
I bought it for Php1450 ($35.32) and I think I got exactly what I payed for. HQ and kick-ass. XD

I was expecting the base wig to be slightly thinner so that it really looks like I tied the wig up the side, but it's kinda like a normal short wig. So the good thing about that is I can wear it without the clip on without looking weird.

Quality: 5/5
Packaging: 4/5 (I think the clip on should be in a separate net bag because when I got it, the clip on was entangled in the base wig.)
Uniqueness: 4/5 (Most wigs for this character/style don't use clip ons so I think this is what's unique about it. I think there are only two or three wig brands use clip ons. And I like how this is a bright red instead of a desaturated or pinkish red.)
Price: 4/5 (Could have been cheaper, but okay.)
Overall: 5/5
It's easy to comb and style, it's length is really manageable but some wefts on the underside are kinda rough. Also, I spot some white strands. O.o
Will you be buying from Mikuchan Goodies again?
YES! Their shop owners are nice people who stay in touch always and update you when your orders are coming. Plus, I was short on money for this so they agreed that I pay half for one month and pay the other half for the next month. They understand cosplayers so well, and their shop has a variety of cosplay goodies to sell (like wigs, school bags and the like).
YES, I do recommend that you buy from them. Although their items are for pre-order, rest assured you'll go through smooth transaction and get the quality you payed for.

That's all, thanks for reading~

Heart-touching Photo

I saw this photo being passed around on Facebook the other day. I really can't help but smile at it, and the message it conveys.

If you don't understand the photo, the girl is cosplaying as Hatsune Miku.

And before you say "She doesn't have a proper wig" or "That's not Miku, she's all covered up" and all that, please do read on first.

From the photo I can assume that she's Islam/Muslim, or she's a member of such religious group. Some said the photo was taken at Jakarta.

I think it's awesome.

I think it's awesome that she stays true to her passion for this hobby, yet remain loyal to her religion. Not many people can do that.

I like most about this is her courage. She's not afraid to profess her love for both cosplay and religion. She likes doing it, so what?

I'm aware that there is such thing as 'discrimination', even in the cosplay world. I think there's much discrimination towards Muslim cosplayers, black cosplayers, chubby cosplayers and the like. I want this photo to remind people to let others do as they please.

So what if she's not pretty enough? Or sexy enough? Or fair-skinned?

As long as we keep doing what we love, we're bound to do what's right. ;)

According to some people, they say the cosplayer's name is Deanty? I'm not sure. Whoever she is, I LOVE YOUR COSPLAY! <3

Do inform me if you know her ^_^

UPDATE! I found her World Cosplay account:

That's all, thanks for reading~

Fan sign contest! :D

So.. Christmas is coming up and another cosplan of mine is soon to be accomplished! :)

I wanted to give out fan signs, but I'm afraid lots of people want one. So I decided to come up with a contest to narrow down some people ^_^

So this contest is simple. You simply need to PRIVATE MESSAGE me and tell who this character is. ;) Simple huh?

Who am I?
You may message me here at my blog, or message my Facebook. Please do not announce it publicly. :) I will respond to your message on whether or not you got the correct answer.

Contest ends December 13, 2012.
Thank you and good luck! :)
