Wig Review: Cynthia ginger

4/06/2021 10:32:00 am


My rambling about wanting a ginger wig must have gotten pretty unbearable to people around me, I swear xD

So I decided to have a go through Aliexpress to try and find the one base wig I'd be satisfied with, so I could turn it into a lacefrontal.

I was choosing between the stores Cynthia and VICWIG, and this time, I'm incredibly happy I chose Cynthia. The wig is just so good I had to order another one in a different color right away, without much of a hesitation.
Let's have a look.



The packaging is really simple, with a net included, and a pretty looking tag with the name of the brand. First impression was really good!


As I first touched the hair, I knew this wig was like a treat for my soul. Smooth, not tangling, and longer than expected, with no shine at all which would give the wig the artificial look. From the first moment I know there's no regretting.

Heat resistance was also tested and even though I recommend using around 150 degree Celsius max, I went to try higher temperatures and the wig seemed to go well with up to 200 degree Celsius straightener.




Elastic rose inner net has just the right amount of hair in my opinion. It fits well on the head and makes the experience with the wig great.



The middle parting is something I usually don't focus much on, but regarding some of my worse experiences with different wigs, I feel like mentioning that this one is well done, neither too thin nor too thick, and with the right amount of hair. And while examining this part of the wig, I also noticed that there are two different colors of the hair strands mixed together - some more orange-like and some a bit more red. It gives the wig a great look in the end. 


All I can say is that this wig truly is a great buy for me. It has everything I'm looking for in a wig: great amount of hair, great lenght, no shine and accurate and pretty color. 

So here's a summary of some important information of this wig.

HEAT RESISTANT: yes

ELASTIC NET: yes

FIBER: pleasant to touch, smooth

SHINE: none

COLOR: like the picture

VOLUME: perfect amount of hair

PRICE: Great buy!

Wig Review: BCHR short bob - pink

3/17/2021 10:34:00 am




Always happy to share my fav aliexpress wig store. Here is another wig from them!

-----------------------

https://www.aliexpress.com/store/2299008

BCHR store can be found on Aliexpress and it specializes on synthetic wigs - both regular and lace-frontal. 

Here are some quick screenshots from their store:


Again, the listing I was ordering this wig from is the following:

color options


and here comes the review of the wig alone! ^^




Packed in a stylish branded bag. I really appreciate this detail!
 
Contents of the bag.


Now let's start with the netting. I personally think the amount of hair is amazing for a wig of this price, and if you are considering a cosplay of a short haired character, I can recommend these.



Bangs are uncut, the wig is more likely to be styled than worn immediately.


Back hair shown here are long enough to be styled in various ways.

I've already reviewed these wigs in red and dark blue, so I'm trying to keep the review a bit more simple this time. You can go and check my previous reviews of BCHR wigs. ^^

Here's a pic of this wig in action!



I think it needs to be considered that the wig is short (my mistake, bought it for a different character & then went and bought a different wig 'cuz the lenght wasn't what I aimed for); but in my opinion it's great for short haired characters! Ofc some styling and cutting is needed usually.

So here's a summary of some important information of this wig.

HEAT RESISTANT: yes

ELASTIC NET: yes

FIBER: pleasant to touch, smooth

SHINE: barely any shine, high-quality

COLOR: exactly like on the picture

VOLUME: perfect amount of hair; definitely stylable

PRICE: Very affordable, great deal in my opinion

As we already know, BCHR packs their wigs in a neat bag with their brand name. 

Here are all the contents



Wig net is dark, but I can definitely confirm that there's just the right amount of hair as always. If you have any difficulty seeing the inside of this wig well, I'd suggest taking a look at other reviews of my BCHR wig from this listing - after all, they are the same :D


Uncut bangs, ready for any styling.

Hair on the back of the wig is long enough to work for characters with bob-like haircut or to be cut to desired lenght and shape.

So here's a summary of some important information of this wig.

HEAT RESISTANT: yes

ELASTIC NET: yes

Wig review: Dollblacks - Harajuku dark green gradient wig

3/05/2021 04:30:00 pm

 


I've already heard a lot of praise for the harajuku wigs, and admired them on every picture - and although I always loved how they look and wanted one, I never really bought one. That was until Dollblacks, a shop dedicated to harajuku/lolita fashion, was so kind to me to send me this wig for a review!

If you're going to buy any of those wigs, I can really recommend Dollblacks. <3 You can also use my discount code there, so you get 10% off your purchase!

Wig review: Cosgeeker: Asuna wig (Sword Art Online)

2/27/2021 01:04:00 am



A new wig I'd really love to share with you guys! 
I had my eyes on Asuna wigs for a while now - and I'm so happy that Cosgeeker decided to collaborate with me on this cosplay! I'm super excited to start sewing now >w<





As you can see, the wig came in a box, with a net included. And I just can't help but feel this specific feeling of safety of my wig when it's in a box like this ^^


The fiber is great, with a really nice, not too vibrant light blue color, doesn't tangle, has nearly no shine and is resistant to 150°C heat, which is the lowest setting on my straightener.



Although the wig net may look a little less dense, what surprised me is that that is actually not the case. Even though there seems to be a lot of space between wefts, the thickness of the wefts themselves seem to be much higher than what I'm used to. And as the curiosity got the best of me, I went and tried to compare the thickness to other of my wigs, which I deem dense enough to my liking, and truly they were nearly the same.


Front part is cut in the style of Asuna from SAO, and a section of the hair on the sides of the head is used to make the two braids connecting at the back of the head.



Why do I feel like this is the most photogenic wig that I own? Seriously, I doubt my wig photos will ever look as good as these QwQ

Well, time for pics of the wig in action!




Wig details: summary:

HEAT RESISTANT: yes

ELASTIC NET: yes

FIBER: smooth, not tangling, nice

SHINE: No shine at all

COLOR: good, like on the picture

VOLUME: great amount of hair

PRICE: really affordable

Wig review: BCHR long pink wig

2/20/2021 03:32:00 pm

 


BCHR wigs are usually my first go-to when I'm looking for a short wig (review for their short wigs is HERE), and I've always been satisfied!
So I decided to try out their longer wigs as well, because honestly, they seemed really neat ^^

I've ordered two of them, pink one and creamy-blonde one, and I'll do two separate reviews. Stay tuned for the other one! ^^





The wig came again in a BCHR brand bag, with a hard-paper border, a piece of paper inside, and a hair net, giving me the feeling of care as always. :3 




As of the wig itself, you can definitely see the elastic net right here, and I dare to say it has a really nice amount of hair - I tried to prove so by tying the hair with a headband tightly as that's usually what I do when I'm trying to figure out the wig thickness. I can definitely say I'm satisfied ^^



Here's the color as closely to real life colours as I could capture. 






Overall, the wig made a really good impression on me. The bangs are long enough to be cut in a way you'd need, the fiber is really smooth and soft, and under natural sunlight the wig doesn't shine at all (Even artificial light doesn't make it shine almost at all - as you can see in the pictures. ^^


I used both of these wigs for Ahri, one being atop of the other.

-----------------------

So here's a summary of some important information of this wig.

HEAT RESISTANT: yes

ELASTIC NET: yes

FIBER: pleasant to touch, smooth

SHINE: barely any shine, high-quality

COLOR: exactly like on the picture

VOLUME: perfect amount of hair; definitely stylable

PRICE: Very affordable, great deal in my opinion

Wig review: Cosfun Rem from Re:zero

2/01/2021 02:28:00 pm


LINK:

-----------------

The Re:zero twins has been under my radar for quite some time now, and as I'd really like to do some maid cosplays at some point, I had to count one of these two in.
And cosfun.com has been so nice to me that they've sent me a wig for Rem <3 So I'm really tuned to start working on the maid dress!

But for now, let's take a look on the Rem wig ^^




It came here via DHL, packed in a box. In my opinion, that is amazing! It is the first time I got a wig in such box and it feels great to know the wig was this safe during the travel ^^




As for the netting, you can see it has the older type of wig net, but in my opinion, considering the length and style, the amount of hair is enough for this specific character ^^

You'd have to be careful with heat though, as the fiber is not much heat resistant. 




When it comes to the color though, I'm more than satisfied. You can find fibers of different shades on this wig - some are more on the blueish/turqiouse side, while the others have more of a darker blue/grey touch. In my opinion, it looks great in the end.
I should also mention that the wig is a bit longer, at least in contrary to my face. Which is indeed appreciated - as I can go and cut the bangs in the right place on my face. And I think it's better to have a bit longer wig that we can cut ourselves, as having it a bit too short is much harder to fix.

The accessories are made by me, out of 2mm EVA foam, and aren't finished - but Cosfun is selling Rem and Ram wigs with accessories as well - feel free to take a look! ^^


Pictures of the wig in action:


 In conclusion, I think the wig looks really pretty. One just has to be a little careful with heat around the wig, as the fiber lacks resistance to it. I think I can go with that without a problem though. ^^

Thanks a bunch again to Cosfun.com ! ^-^
Make sure to go and check out what they have to offer, I believe you will find something you'd love! ^-^
