[TinyUnicorn] Split Wig Review

 

Today, I get to share my first review of a TinyUnicorn product! TinyUnicorn is a store on Amazon.com that sells wigs and miscellaneous items. I’ve seen clothing and home goods pop up in their Amazon shop too!

This particular item is a split wig the owner of the TinyUnicorn shop sent me. The colors are a silvery gray and a dusty muted purple.

The wig arrived packaged as expected. The bubble mailer it came in was big enough so I could cut the top to open the package without cutting into the plastic bag that held the wig. The wig also came with a free wig cap!

The split colors are beautiful! One half of the wig is a silvery gray color, and the other half is a dusty reddish-purple. It reminds me of taro in some lighting, but it has more red tones than a true taro purple color.

Below, you can see the hooks and the style of the netting on the inside of the wig.

 

The size of the cap fits me well, but I wouldn’t recommend this wig if you have a larger head circumference than me. I remember when I had long hair, I had trouble fitting all my hair under a wig with a wig cap size like this one. I used the hooks on the outermost notches when I wore this wig.

Now let’s talk about the texture of this wig. When I first took it out from the package, I was surprised by how smooth and silky the wig fibers felt. I’m glad it is so smooth, and yet, does not look too shiny in photos (definitely a plus). I wore it all day, and the wig didn’t show signs of tangles afterwards! There was a bit of frizz, but I was able to smooth it out with a wig comb and my fingers. I also like that the wig has long bangs, that way you can wear it like I did (brushed to the side), or you can trim the bangs to your liking. I might trim the bangs later; for this review, I didn’t do any styling other than using a bobby pin to pin the bangs to the side so they wouldn’t go all over my face.

 

You can find this 28″ split wig here. Do you ever wear split wigs, or have you ever dyed your hair in a split style? I’d love to hear about your experiences with split wigs and hair styles too!

The last time I reviewed a split wig was this cute Miss Tea Wig from PennyDreads, back in 2015. Wow, time really flies…

Before closing out this post, I’d also like to shoutout my friend Tara, who let me wear the cute beanies and macaron hair pin for these photos. She also took the photos of me wearing the wig, using my iPhone. Tara has so many cute things! ❤

RoleCosplay: Lolita Wig Review

 

RoleCosplay sponsored this cute lolita wig! Here’s some information about this wig from their website:

  • Heat-resistant Fiber
  • Main Wig Length: 65 cm
  • Ponytail Length: 65 cm
  • Price: $21.50

You can use the exclusive 10% off coupon code “lilixiao” if you want to purchase something from RoleCosplay!

The wig was shipped to me in a L-email wig mailer; I assume that this wig is from the company L-email wig. RoleCosplay sells a variety of different wigs, and I am not sure if RoleCosplay sells wigs from different brands as well.

DSC_0519.jpg

Upon opening the package, I found that the wig was safely packed inside. There was even a complimentary wig cap!

DSC_0520

Since my old black wig cap is really beat-up now, I decided to use this new wig cap when I tried on this new wig. Here are some flash/no flash comparison images:

With flash, the wig looks shiny. Without flash, the wig has a healthy sheen and not much shine. I personally think the wig looks better with no flash!DSC_0526.jpg

DSC_0526

The inside of the wig has a capless construction. The wig circumference is also adjustable with the elastics and hooks. This wig was not too tight on me (which is an issue I have with some wigs, since my hair is so thick). The wig cap that came with this wig was also great! It was one of the black netting ones that has a hole on top to make it easy to pull on and pull up. It’s really stretchy and can hold a lot of hair!

IMG_1952.JPG

The color of this wig reminds me of taro! It’s a pretty purplish-brown color. The wig is curly and has straight bangs. I trimmed the bangs since they originally went down to my lips. If you don’t want to trim the bangs, you can also sweep them to the side or clip them to the sides. I didn’t cut or style anything other than the bangs, so this wig came in ready-to-wear condition. The curls were bouncy and beautiful, and the length was perfect! The jaw clips for the ponytails were easy to use. The wig is thick, and as you can see below, the wefts don’t show.

IMG_1937.JPG

The two ponytail clips are so cute and bouncy! I love ponytail clip wig sets because they’re so versatile. You can wear the base wig on its own, with one ponytail clip, or with both ponytail clips. The ponytail clips were not too heavy and they were comfortable on my head.

IMG_1970

I also made a YouTube video as a supplement to this review. The first part of the video is the wig review, and the second part of the video is a coordinate rundown.

Coordinate Rundown:

  • Wig: RoleCosplay
  • Headbow: Metamorphose
  • Small Hairbows: Offbrand
  • Cutsew/Hoodie: Angelic Pretty
  • Skirt: Metamorphose
  • Jewelry (Bracelets and rings): Offbrand
  • Parasol: Angelic Pretty
  • Socks: Offbrand
  • Shoes: Bodyline

BONUS PHOTO:

IMG_1980.JPG

I always need to do Jojo poses in Lolita fashion, hahaha! The wig was secure on my head and did not slide around at all. Does anyone else watch Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures? I’m currently on the Egypt arc of Stardust Crusaders. I love this anime!

To see more photos, check out this Facebook album; I’ll add more photos over time. Shoutout to the photographer, Rick Joseph: thanks for shooting me!

Thanks so much for reading my review! Be sure to use the coupon code “lilixiao” if you’re shopping at RoleCosplay. Feel free to ask me any questions. ^_^ Hope you all have a great week!

[Review] The Five Wits: Stocking Wig

LiLi-Stocking-4.jpg

Does anyone else here love Panty & Stocking? This wig is the perfect Stocking Anarchy wig, but the official name of this wig is “Angelic Striped Gothling Halo” … And Stocking is basically an Angelic Striped Gothling Halo, right? xD I always love the fun names for wigs from The Five Wits!

Here is the Product Description from the official website:

“This extra-long cosplay wig is blue-purple on the outside and pink on the inside, and great for cosplaying Stocking from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.”

Here is the package I received:

DSC_0338.jpg

The bubble mailer had some small tears in it, but it was intact and the wig inside was not dirty or damaged.

The wig itself came wrapped in a long plastic bag. It wasn’t a ziploc-style bag like most plastic wig bags; instead, it was a long plastic bag that was twisted at the end. The ends of the wig fibers stuck out a bit at the end. I like this twisted way of securing the long wig; when I took the wig out from the bag, the fibers were smooth and untangled.

DSC_0339

I have always had terrible luck with long wigs… Especially Stocking. I’ve gone through 2 different Stocking wigs, and both have been terribly tangled, even after using every possible detangling method I could think of. I tried Motions spray, fabric softener, detangling spray, wig shampoo and conditioner, silk oil, hair straightening iron, and more… My first Stocking wig became a total disaster; after combing it through, it lost so many wig fibers. My second one isn’t that terrible, but it was such a pain (and so time-consuming…) to detangle it.

LiLi-Stocking-6.jpg

This one from the Five Wits is my third Stocking wig, and I like the colors of this one better than the previous ones I have had. The colors are darker, and I prefer this look! The fibers are really smooth but also not too shiny. I love the texture of this wig! It’s a very different texture from those of the other wigs I got from The Five Wits, but then again, this is my first time wearing a long straight wig from this brand. The other wigs I have are short and straight or long and curly.

I also wore this wig when I cosplayed Police!Stocking for the first time (technically a different shoot but with the same photographer and on the same day).LiLi-Stocking-20.jpg

My college house basement worked really well for this photoshoot! It would also be the perfect setting for a horror movie… Lots of creepiness. And spiderwebs. I totally got lots of spiderwebs on me.

LiLi-Stocking-22.jpg

Long wigs do tangle, and I don’t think there’s any way to escape this. Especially when it comes to long straight wigs. However, this wig wasn’t tangled to total despair! When I changed costumes in the middle of the day, I honestly just threw the wig unceremoniously to the side because I was rushing. And when I put it back on my head, I didn’t have time to comb it through, but it looks alright in the photos! I just smoothed it down as best as I could with my hands.

LiLi-Stocking-24.jpg

This wig was easy to detangle later by gently combing it through with my fingers and with a wide-toothed comb. I was surprised by how it looked after wearing it all day for this shoot!

LiLi-Stocking-Pt2-1

 

I’m rating this wig a 5/5. Highly recommended! I’ve purchased quite a few wigs from The Five Wits in the past, and I have never been disappointed. Most of my Homestuck cosplay wigs came from The Five Wits, actually! I still can’t believe today is the day after 4/13… (Wow, Homestuck actually ended!) My first wig from The Five Wits is a short black one that was super easy to style. I used to for so many characters, and I didn’t even need to use hairspray. The fibers were stiff, so they weren’t smooth or silky, but the stiff fibers made it super easy to style with my fingers… and they actually stayed in place!

Let me know if you have any questions regarding The Five Wits or this Stocking wig. My Stocking photos were done by Flash Cord Photography! I’ll try to make a post or two about this photoshoot in the future. I’ve been really busy with college classes and applying for jobs, so unfortunately, I haven’t been able to blog as much as I would like to. Hopefully I can blog more once graduation rolls around! Wishing you all a great week~!

UNIQSO: Luo Tianyi Wig

UNIQSO sponsored a beautiful wig and perfect circle lenses for a Luo Tianyi cosplay! In this review, I will discuss the wig. Stay tuned for my circle lens reviews as well!

If you want to buy something from UNIQSO, be sure to use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off!

_DSC0787w

Photographer: Studio du petit oiseau

First, let’s talk about the packaging!

DSCN1116

UNIQSO shipped the wig in a DHL mailer. The circle lenses came in a separate package, which I will talk about it in a separate blog post.

DSCN1117

The wig was wrapped in multiple layers of protection.

DSCN1119

Inside the plastic bag is the wig and wig extension piece (and protective hairnets). The plastic bag also had a cardboard piece inside that added protection for the wig during transit. The wig came in perfect condition! Pretty fibers, not tangled at all: this was definitely a brand-new wig.

DSCN1120

When I took out the pieces from the bag, I was pleasantly surprised to find a free wig cap! This is the kind of wig cap I like too: the stretchy net kind with the hole on the top. This wig is made up of a short base wig and one clip-on extension. The extension has a large alligator clip, and it is one piece that has both the hair infinity loop as well as the long extension strands.

_DSC0712w

Photographer: Studio du petit oiseau

The wig was very easy to style! I trimmed the base wig to fix up the bangs, but didn’t do anything to the extension. The gray wig has a silver sheen, and it’s the perfect color for Luo Tianyi!

_DSC0884w

Photographer: Studio du petit oiseau

It’s too early to tell if the wig extension tangles easily or not, but the fibers are all smooth and even if they tangle, they should be easy to detangle with a wig comb or wig brush. The base wig is short and does not tangle at all. The fibers have a silvery sheen but do not look too shiny. This wig looks fantastic in photos! The base wig is also thick; my hair does not show through the wefts.

_DSC0898w

If you want to cosplay Luo Tianyi, this wig is perfect! It’s easy to wear and saves you the trouble of trying to make the hair extensions yourself. Here is the link to the wig, if you’re interested! Be sure to use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off!

I’ll review the circle lenses next, but if you want to see the product now, here is the link. I will update this post with the link to my circle lens review once it is live. Let me know if you have any questions!

PennyDreads: Strawberry Jam

_DSC7552

Photo by Studio du Petit Oiseau

My wig sponsor Penny Dreads sent me this adorable Strawberry Jam wig. You can see my first review for them, for their Miss Tea wig in Black/Gold, in this blog post. If you want to buy something from Penny Dreads, use the coupon code “XIAORAWR” for 10% off!

Here is the package that arrived in my mailbox:

FotorCreated

Upon opening the package, I found an envelope with a glittery pink heart sticker and, of course, the wig nestled neatly in a plastic bag. Inside the envelope was a cute Thank You card! This card was a sweet touch… Thanks so much, Penny Dreads! There’s no need to thank me; I should be thanking youwig

The wig came with a hairnet, which is great! I love hairnets because they keep the wig fibers from getting tangled during transit (and during storage!). The color of the wig is a dark blonde dip-dyed in raspberry-red! I like how the dip-dye is not too stark. It looks natural, as the blonde hue fades into the red. There are even little dip-dyed bits on the bangs!

DSCN1115

The inside of the wig has the Penny Wigs tag and adjustable elastics. As you can see in the above photo, there are many wefts; it’s a nice thick wig!

_DSC7794

My favorite shot!

I had a photoshoot featuring this wig with the photographer Studio du petit oiseau. I absolutely love the resulting photos and I hope you love them too! You can see more photos from the photoshoot in this Facebook album. All the photos from here until the end of this post are credited to Studio du petit oiseau.

_DSC7609

The wig is really comfortable to wear! It doesn’t feel tight or loose, and since the wig circumference is adjustable, I’m sure it’ll fit you too (use the hooks on the inside of the wig). The wig fibers are soft and smooth, and the waves are gorgeous. I did not have to cut or style this wig at all; I wore it straight out of the bag. The bangs are great for a sweeping bang style! If you want straight bangs, they would be easy to trim to your liking. Since the wig is thick, you can’t see my real hair color or wig cap from the back of the wig (which is an issue with some wig brands!).

_DSC7703

I really love the transition of colors in this Strawberry Jam wig! The raspberry red is also deliciously vibrant. Penny Dreads has other colorful wigs, so definitely check them out for a variety of gorgeous wigs. They also sell hair extensions, half wigs, and dreads. Check out their Clearance section for awesome deals! You can also use the coupon code “XIAORAWR” for 10% off your purchase. What’s your favorite wig from Penny Dreads?

Penny Dreads: Miss Tea Wig

Penny Dreads, my latest wig sponsor, sent me the Miss Tea wig in Black/Gold for review! This split wig is super cute and easy to manage! In addition to full wigs, Penny Dreads sells half wigs, dreads, and hair extensions. If you’re interested in buying something from Penny Dreads, be sure to use the coupon code “XIAORAWR” for 10% off! They mailed the wig to me via USPS Priority Mail: DSC_0103 This bubble mailer was sturdy and kept everything undamaged. Penny Dreads sent me really cute business cards along with the wig! The wig itself was perfectly packaged, inside a nice plastic bag with a Penny Dreads brand stick in the corner. DSC_0108 The wig came with scrunched up paper inside the wig to keep the head’s shape, and a hair net around the entire wig. This way, the curls stayed perfect, with no tangles in sight. Take a look at the photo below for with flash versus without flash views of the wig. DSC_0110_Fotor_Collage_Fotor As you can see, there isn’t a big difference in color depending on flash or no flash. Either way, the wig looks great! The golden blonde color is rich and I believe it will be flattering on many skin tones. Same goes for the black color! I love the split-wig design, especially since there is some blending of the fibers in the middle so it isn’t a stark change from one color to the next. You can brush and style the bangs in different ways to get different looks, and you can also brush out the curls for a more dramatic look if you would like! The wig fibers are thick and soft, so I am sure they will take well to styling.

Now, let’s take a look at what this wig looks like on me. DSC_0046 I think this wig is perfect for lolita fashion! The split-color trend is super cute. The black/gold combination of this Miss Tea wig makes it perfect for a variety of different styles. You can pair it with a gothic lolita look, as I did, but you could also pair it with a sweet lolita look! I can just imagine this wig paired with a cute tea time-themed lolita print. You can also wear this wig for other alternative styles. I think it would be really cool with a cyberpunk outfit! And this wig would also be really cute with a rokku gear coordinate. DSC_0095 You could also wear this wig casually, just for fun! This wig will make any outfit unique. You can pair it with your favorite graphic t-shirt, with a cute summer dress, or even with jeans and a comfy top. This wig is really easy to wear, and it fits my head perfectly: not too loose, not too tight. There are elastics and hooks in the back of the wig so you can adjust the head circumference if needed. Here is a back-view photo of the worn wig: DSC_0073

Be sure to check out my Facebook album featuring this beautiful Miss Tea wig in Black/Gold. I’ll add more photos to it over time, so like my page to see more photos! I also used this wig for other sponsored product styling, so you’ll see this wig pop up again in future reviews. I highly recommend Penny Dreads as a wig company! They have great customer service too; they respond promptly to all of my emails. Give their Facebook page a like, and check out their Instagram and Twitter.

Reminder: If you buy something from Penny Dreads, use the coupon code “XIAORAWR” for 10% off!

I hope you enjoyed reading my review of this lovely wig! I can’t wait to see what other wigs Penny Dreads will release. They are a very promising company. ^_^

Dreamation Wig Review: Hinata Shouyo

Today I will be reviewing an awesome shop on Storenvy called DreamationDreamation sells a variety of items, including cosplay wigs, cosplay accessories, costumes, and anime merchandise. Dreamation was kind enough to sponsor me a Hinata (Haikyuu!!) wig from the Taobao company Ghostcos. They also gave me the following coupon code for you all to use: “xiaolili” for 7% off.

Stock Photo

I’ve heard about the company Ghostcos before, but I have never tried their wigs. Dreamation’s prices are great, and I think it is convenient to shop through Taobao resellers like Dreamation since buying from Taobao requires a shopping service, and shopping service fees as well as domestic and international shipping costs add up. Onto the review! Here is how the wig was packaged:

DSC_0008_Fotor_Collage

It comes with a tag, a black hairnet, and a plastic bag for storage. The wig arrived inside-out, which is great, because I always store my wigs like this. The wig fibers are slightly rough, which makes it an easy-to-style wig.

FlashvsNone

Look at how fluffy this wig looks, straight out from the bag! I haven’t even cut off the tag yet in these photos. The above photos were taken with a mix of indoor lighting and outdoor lighting (I had my indoor lights on, but the windows were also open). With flash, the color is a bright vibrant orange, and quite shiny. But without flash, the orange is still vibrant and pretty, but without the artificial-looking shine. The layers are already cut into the wig, so all I had to do was trim the bangs and trim some side parts to fit my face better. Overall, I think this wig came pre-styled!

flashandnone

The above photos were taken with my indoor lights off, but my windows open. So the above photos are purely lit by sunlight. With flash, the wig is shiny (as most wigs are with flash, and sometimes, real hair looks shiny with flash as well, or at least my real hair is). Without flash, and with simple sunlight, the orange looks muted but still orange. I’m very pleased with this wig’s color! And the fluffiness and pre-cut layers were a pleasant surprise, since I usually have to cut layers into my wigs myself.

DSC_0010

The netting on the inside of the wig is well-constructed. The wig itself is fairly thin, but as you can see above, the wefts are placed close together. There are no gaping holes in the wig, so I don’t think there will be any problems with real hair showing through. In addition, the wig was comfortable to wear. This wig has an adjustable circumference!

Now… let’s see what this wig looks like on me! I trimmed the wig a bit and also styled it with my fingers and some hairspray.

beautyplus

It was easy to cut and style, and the fit of the wig was very comfortable. I wore this wig to a cosplay dance, and yes, I danced around in this wig without a problem. In fact, I even ran laps, did sit-ups, and stretched in this wig. (Some Haikyuu!! cosplayers and I decided to be stupid jocks and exercise during the dance, so yes, we had a workout. While wearing wigs.)

beautypluss

Even though this wig is not super thick, as you can see, it looks perfect when worn! My real hair doesn’t show through. That black thing you see on the right side is not my real hair… In case you were wondering, it is a black feather I clipped to the wig! I decided to wear black crow wings for Hinata. ^_^
