Wig Review - Cute, Japanese, Fashion !

Hello every one!
How are all of you? I have a review for you all! YAY!! I have got a few to share but this time I will be doing  video one for you ( I will provide the links!) And one here on my blog! I am loving getting great quality photo's with my pop up studio and having fun filming! Link here!

Today's Review is a Wig review!


I was on facebook ( when ever am I not on facebook - haha!) and I spied a shop, that I have used in the past, Cute Japanese Fashion. I ordered from them a few times , I think it was a bear hoodie outfit and a few top's . But I noticed they were selling wigs!! A UK Kawaii company selling wigs?! YEA!! I was over the moon to see this, okay so at this time there is not many wigs in the store , how ever there is a few in some lovely colours, I caved in (am meant to be saving for Hyper Japan !) I bought one. - My bad 

So I was a happy bunny to get my wig in the post. I ordered it on the 13th and it came today ( the 16th.) How great was that. I was very impressed with the shipping, more so over the weekend and the plus of the company being based in the UK - no long waits.

My order came in a plastic Parcel bag.
Inside was my order, My wig . Yay!

As you can see my wig came in a plastic bag with some super cute business cards, so sweet with a Deer on one side and a Bunny on the back.


I ordered the Blonde shade wig called  ''Blonde wavy'' which with came with a complementary wig cap. Which is super handy. Its the mesh style that helps your own head breathe. 



  Inside the wig is the normal like all my other wigs and same with the size attachments to keep the wig on your head, with the choice of how tight you wish to wear it. At the 'Crown' of the Wig  there is the a small area of fake skin for the natural parting of the crown . This makes the wigs look more real looking when you can see some of the scalp. I was very impressed with the wig once looking it over and giving it a brush once out the parcel.



I love the colour its not overly shiny like some wigs, its a natural healthy shine, the fibres are soft. I want to say silky but they are not more a matt finish which I quite like ,as it gives a more natural look to the wig.
I would say that the stock photos are very much alike to the products , I would personally like to see more images of the wigs to get a better idea of the item. Maybe one that is not worn on some ones head would be good .

The style, I love the style its girly and very Kawaii!! You could so wear this with lolita or a harajuku kawaii look, even a every day look would go with this wig. I would maybe say its more of a lose curls style than a Waves style  ( Old habits of a hairdresser here!) but my goodness is a lovely wig.

The Price , here is a main factor for many wig buyers. The price. This wig cost me £13.99 and it is completely worth it! Its a great price. (all items at Cute Japanese Fashion are under £20!) The wig is a good quality product with a reasonable price.  I have bought many wigs (talking like over 20 something now.) And I have spend from both ends , from a £6 wig away up to the £40 wigs. And this price for this wig  is such a good price for its quality .

Wig wearing, Its a pretty comfortable wig - Maybe I am super used to wearing wigs but I have had this one one all afternoon and evening and its not brothered me at all , even for the length of the wig as its quite a long one so am very happy.


And the above picture is the wig (under one studio light and flash .) Is this not just stunning! It don't even look shiny with the flash on. Just a natural glow.

Over all am very happy with this wig, I am gona say its one of my favourite ones because of the colour and style .   Kawaii!! The shop website was easy to use and the costumer care was really responsive and helpful. And because I love all my readers here are the links and some discount codes for you all!

Lockshop Review- Dolly Collection

Few weeks back , Lockshop released a new range called ,The Dolly Collection.
A new range of styled wigs inspired by Dolly Kei or Cult Party Kei Fashion. I have looked at these styles but with any of the wigs from the Lockshop they can be used with any style or personal style you like.
The wig that caught my attention was the Chocolate Cherry, its a very pretty and fade colour a very light Mauve colour that fades to a dark deep Mahogany shade.
There are also a range of other shades to pick from at the online Lockshop store.


So Lets move onto the Review.

Postage and shipping.
There has been new shipping added to the Lockshop, Its gone up a little in price however,This got my order to me super fast,I have never had any issues with shipping from the Lockshop and I got emails from the store owner to keep me up-to date all the time. So even with a Lockshop office relocation , My order was not effected in the slightest!
The wigs are always in high standard presentation.


How she can fold them and wrap them ,in this light paper-I will never know,I would end up ripping it
>.<
So pretty!
Also my order came in a flat shaped box.


The Product

As I said  went for the Dolly style in Chocolate cherry.I normally don't go for a wig with bangs.
The Image to the product are spot on.(depending on your monitor settings of course)
The Wigs is super soft and silky,the colour is so pretty too.
Am glad I picked this shade,The store does advise that you can cut and shape the wigs bangs/fridge.
Due to the wig being flattened to ship out that you man need to reshape it.

When I took my wig out I have its a good shake to bring some life into it and put it on right away. So yes, you do need to style the bangs but I feel like I didn't need to cut them they are the right length for me.
So here s a photo for you all right out the packet.


My photo was taken with a crap photo self app, so it looks a lot lighter here and but you can see even though the wig has been flattened it seems to shake out really well, I will take my styling tools to sort the bangs out.
But still rather impressed !

Here is a slightly better image of the colours.
Kawaii!


I will upload new photos on facebook to get a better image.
*watch this space*

Over all rating

10 out of 10 
Would highly recommend lockshop wigs to any one.
Good prices,postage,shipping and Customer service.
Lockshop have never let me down in product quality  or service.

Till Later

Lock shop wig Review


Hello Kawaii lovers hope you are all looking forward to excitement of Christmas since its so so close *^_^* Yay! I am teehee.
So couple of weeks back the Lock shop had a restock of wigs and some new wigs came in,the wigs were not my sort of thing but the Mermaid in Honey had been restocked and I got my chance to get it ordered.
The mermaid style is really nice,It was the black to purple fade I liked but it was discounted due to it not fading well?

If that makes sense? >.<

Any how I have never been one for the longer types of wigs and also the fact they no longer had the black on in ,I choose to go with the Honey wig,it was the colour that drew me to it more than anything,Also the style instead of curls its more waves,but not like the krimp style that GLW has in Rhapsody which looks a lot like candy floss,I sort of like those but they are soo pricey !
;~;
Before I got right off track here is the review.

Postage and Shipping.
The Lock shop has provided a new faster shipping,which makes it quicker to get  your wig posted to you,however I picked the medium rate for shipping .
I ordered on the 11th and it was dispatched by the 15th and got to me on the 19th,My wig came in a plastic sealed bag and the item was wrapped up in tissue paper and the wig is held in a plastic bag reseal-able,its a idea to keep these bags for storing the wig.

Product.
The wig is covered with a net and the wig cap has been stuffed with paper to keep it from being flatted in the shipping.
It comes with a free wig cap and it all gift wrapped up.
The wig itself,has super soft long wavy fibres,you can run your fingers through the wig and its silky to touch.
This is one of the longer wigs about 70-75cms in total,which reaches just past my bust,
Its light and easy to wear.
The colour is lush,Its like a nice blonde colour,I would say its a very slight bit darker in natural lighting to the photo on the web site but its a very natural looking colour and that's why I really like it.So this didn't bother me in any way.
My wig is the newer style with long bangs,so I with ease swept the bangs to the side,I am not a big fan on bangs but like the option to pick what style I like to make my wig.

Price.
I was happy to pay the price as I know how good the standard of the wig are from the past.

Over all thoughts.With every wig I have bought from the Lock shop I have never been left disappointed,The products are high standard and super quality. 
Its one of my top places to buy my wigs,Sorry GLW you are lower in my list!
Every time I put on my wigs from Lock shop,I get a sense of glamour and feel like a model with them on.
If there was one thing I would want to see would be new darker shades and other darker colour ways,as  much as I enjoy being a Blonde...I like my darker shades too.
so I give the lock shop...
9/10
Only cause I want more darker shades 
\^_^/

So here are a few pics that have been taken *note these photos are with the wig taken straight out of the bag.




Till Later

wigs lashes contests and kawaii goodies

Hello My Kawaii Lovers!
Hope you are well.
Ive not been keeping to well the last week .
TT_TT
However I think i have found out what was upsetting my poor tummy and on the mend .
(Yay)
I have been working and focused on my Fairy outfit for Halloween/Fun raiser,But I have been busy with my Kawaii goodies too.
I got those Pretty Lashes I was eyeing up from Bourjois to go with my fairy outfit and my wings also came in the end so here are some sneaky photos of the idea I am aiming for with my outfit.


They are so so light to wear and so pretty too! 
I love the effect they give off.
Also Do you all like my cute Wings,They are not as as big as I hoped but they are still so cute!
Also you may have noticed my newest wig is been worn a lot,I am getting used to the colour and its such a fun wig to wear and it looks so real!
The Lock shop are doing a contest for a model for them I'm thinking about taking part,I do not see me winning it but it maybe be a bit of fun,However I am hoping that its not going to be one of those Like face book contests,I really don't have that many friends or followers to get that many votes.There is also a Doll delight face book contest you could win a dress made by Doll delight, I have entered.
Its one that shows off your style,again I don't see myself winning but to be in the top Ten would be nice.


This month I was back in Neo Magazine.Yay!Yes that was me in the ''Keep it Secret'' Advert for the Kawaii club!It was Fun doing these photos with all my Kawaii goodies around me and trying not to eat the pocky sticks!
Have you noticed its the same as my banner image at the top of my Blog?!
Taking of Kawaii,My Keep it Secret Kawaii club package came the other week.
@__@
I love getting my monthly dose of Kawaii.
This month I was over the moon with my new Hello Kitty ear phones and other goodies that you can see in my photo.
Do you like my cute plushes? ^__^ Im just after a Gloomy bear Next and a Hello kitty but its not Hello Kitty one Im after is her Sister Mimmy that I want as I got lots of Kitty,so for a change here is a Kawaii photo of me and my Choco Cat.


I have also been doing some new images that I may use for my Blog and face book I wanted to make some nice new images with my wigs and seem to have found a bit of a signature pose haha!
But more of those later as you will see those be added at some point.
I am also going to be adding more of my personal fashion and added more of my outfits here to the Blog,As well I has more fetures and interviews to work on at some point for you all for your Kawaii needs and love.
But  in the mean time to vote for my style entry for the Doll Delight contest then please follow the Link.

Stay Super Kawaii
