Lockshop Wig Review ♥

Hello cuties! Today I'm going to be reviewing a wig that I purchased from Lockshop. I bought the Mermaid Prism Wig originally because this wig had sold out and I wanted something similar in color/quality. (I ended up buying both of them though lol) I've heard from many people that Lockshop is really good quality and let me tell you, they weren't lying.~ Anyway, onto the review!


My wig shipped from Germany on the 4th of August and arrived about two weeks after which is good for international shipping times! It took me forever to get it from the post office and then the lady gave me a hard time because the parcel has my alias and not my real name omg but, I finally got it! The package was ripped a little in the back but luckily, nothing fell out and nothing on the inside was damaged.


My wig was wrapped neatly and it also came with a wig cap. Not all of my wigs come with wig caps but, I've accumulated so many that it's never been an issue for me but, it's always good to have more in case you misplace them!


My wig came in a plastic zip-lock baggy. I store all of my wigs like this and when I'm done wearing them, I put them back in their original packaging (netting included) to keep them in their best condition.


This wig is in layers~ The top layer is blonde, the middle layer is a candy pink, and the bottom layer is a lilac color. These colors don't necessarily blend but they go really well together!


The netting on the inside of the wig is very good quality and I am really impressed! When the netting on the inside of the wig is good quality, the wig will last a lot longer so, that's good.



On the inside of the wig there are hooks and loops. You put the hooks in the loops (2nd photo) to adjust the way the wig fits on your head. Don't put the wig on too tight ot it will give you a massive headache due to lack of bloodflow (trust me I have experienced this...) So, just put it to where it feels comfortable and if you'd like, you can put on bobby pins to help the wig stay in place. I didn't use bobby pins other than to pull back the fringe but, surprisingly it stayed all day! It helps if you don't mess with it though~


Here is the top of the wig and as you can see, it looks very natural and realistic. You can totally tell that this wig is extremely well-made and although this is now the most expensive wig I own, it's also one of the best wigs I own in terms of color, design, quality etc!



I didn't edit the contrast on these two photos so tat you can get a better idea of what the colors look like. The colors are very vibrant nut not so vibrant that it's distracting, if that makes sense? The colors go very well together and I love the light curls sooo much!


Lockshop was kind enough to send a bit of a wear and care guide on wigs. I admit that I don't agree with some of the tips they give but, I have a specific method for caring for my wigs~ Anyway, it's always good to know how to care for your wigs especially if you are a beginner because the best you care for your wig, the longer it will last.


Here's what the wig looks like on me. As you can see, the wig does not come styled so, if you want to cut the fringe you have to do it yourself. I'm really happy that if doesn't come styled though because I don't like full fringe wigs very much! This wig didn't get frizzy or anything over time and I am very happy about that. I'm not used to seeing myself so blonde but this is such a beautiful wig and I highly recommend it!

Circus Doll Review~! ♥

Hello cuties! Today I'm going to be reviewing an online storenvy shop called Circus DollCircus Doll sells cosplay costumes, wigs, accessories, and more! I'm really excited for this review because I finally got to cosplay Chii from Chobits! It was my first time cosplaying so, I hope you'll all support me. ^^


I'm going to talk about the shipping, first. Okay, so the shipping took a little while because I asked the owner if she could cut the fringe and style the wig for me since I'm too scared to take scissors to my wigs, myself. So, she sent it to herself, and then sent it to me so naturally it took a little while but I expected that. I was sent two items which came separately because I got them at two separate times. The 2nd item was sent to me directly and it only took a little over two weeks and I was very impressed considering it was shipped internationally! Nothing was harmed or damaged during shipping.


The wig came in a cardboard box and was wrapped neatly in a plastic zip-lock baggy. I was also sent a cute little note from the owner which was very sweet!


This wig is extremely long and it's most deffinately the longest wig that I now own. It is 150cm long! Lucky it was tied up neatly so, it didn't get too tangled. I suggest braiding it, instead, though!


Here's what the netting on the inside of the wig looks like. It's really good quality and very well made! I am very pleased with the quality. 


On the inside of the wig there are hooks and loops that you can use to make the wig fit perfectly on your head/ What I noticed is this wig has more loops than my other wigs so I suppose it could fit really smal heads, too!


Here's what the wig looks like on me! It's a very good quality wig and although I don't think blonde suits me, my cosplay came out okay for a beginner, right? 


The only issue I had with this wig is it is REALLY long! It's necessary for the character I was cosplaying, though. I'm really short (4'10") so, I kept tripping over my wig LOL. I think that even though my cosplay wasn't exact, it came out pretty nice, don't you? I got so many supportive comments from you guys because I wasn't so sure of it at first. Like, you want everything to be perfect and if it's not you end up a little disappointed, I guess.. But overall, I really love the quality of this wig and it's perfect for a Chii cosplay!

You can purchase this wig HERE.


Next up, I am going to be reviewing these very cute Strawberry Tights. I saw these on tumblr I was was like "OH MY GOD I NEED THESE!!!" and one of my sponsors at Circus Doll offered to send them to me and I was so happy.


These tights are so cute and they come in two different colors! I wore them when I went out with my friend Hannah and received many compliments on them. Before my sponsor offered to send me these tights I went looking for them on storenvy and ebay etc. and they were so overpriced! Some shops wanted $20 for them and I was very confused like.. why would someone pay that much for tights? But, Circus Doll is the cheapest place to buy them that I've come across. $11 for really cute tights isn't that bad, at all. ^^

Anyway, these are all of the items that I'm going to be reviewing for today. I have a discount code for you all! You can use the code "pastelcutie" at checkout and receive 10% off your order at Circus Doll!


I hope you all enjoyed my review. Thanks for the support and thanks for reading! Love you! ♥

Rockstar Wigs Review (Dolluxe) ♥

Hello cuties! Many of you requested that I do a review of my new wig from Dollux a.k.a Rockstar Wigs, Gothic Lolita Wigs etc. Dollux sells various one of a kind wigs for many different styles. Dolluxe is made up of different brands/collections that suit specific styles. For example, Gothic Lolita Wigs is more suited for Lolita and Fairy Kei. Rockstar Wigs is more of a punk/casual style, and Cosplay Wigs USA is of course, for cosplay! Dolluxe is a site where I recommend you go to if you want to buy beautiful, and high quality wigs. Keep in mind that with higher quality wigs, you're going to pay a little more but I promise you, it's so worth it. Anyway, onto the review~!


Firstly, I am going to talk to you guys about the packaging, shipping, etc. So, my wig came in this plastic envelope. Dolluxe ships from within the U.S. (Texas, I believe!) which means that if you live in the U.S. it's going to ship very fast. I've ordered from Dolluxe before and I was very pleased with the fact that my wig arrived within 2-3 days after it was shipped. When I ordered this wig I knew what to expect in terms of shipping and I love the fact that it doesn't take very long, at all. Not only that but, I believe they have a flat rate shipping price of $5.00 which is awesome because no one likes to pay tons for shipping, including myself! Nothing was harmed or damaged during shipping and overall, I am very happy with my shipping experience.


So, once I removed the envelope this is how my wig was packaged. Most of my wigs are packaged like this, actually~ But, it came in a plastic zip-lock bag. It was wrapped in netting and it had cardboard on the inside to keep the wig from going flat which is good if you have a wavy/curly wig. I store my wigs just like this. When I'm done with them, I put the netting back on and slide them back into the bag as pictured. I feel like my wigs maintain their quality and shape, this way and I recommend that you do the same.


Here is my beautiful Hair Prism 2 in Pastel from the Rainbow Rock Collection. I saw this wig on Gothic Lolita Wig's Facebook page and I knew that I had to have it immediately! I just love the curls and the colors so much. Here are some stats regarding this wig:

Length: 28"/72cm

EST. Shipping Weight: 13oz

Fibers: Synthetic High Temperature Fibers - up to 180*F/82*C
(The lowest setting on most hair tools)

This wig is synthetic and it is heat resistant. You may use heating tools on this wig at the lowest setting (described above) I don't recommend that you use heat on your wigs very often even if they are heat resistant because overtime, you will ruin the fibers.


Here is what the inside of my wig looks like. The netting on the inside of the wig is high quality and I am extremely happy with it! With lower quality wigs, the netting falls apart easily and it just overall, isn't good so, it's important that the netting on the inside is good quality (as seen above).


What I love about GLW is they started to put these little ....(I don't know what they're called..) I'm just going to call them pins.. they put these little pins on the top and bottom part of the wig so, that the wig doesn't slide out of place as you wear it. I have been hoping for a solution to my wigs sliding out of palce (other than using bobby pins) and this is it! I can wear my wigs all day and it stays in place, I love it sososo much!!!



On the inside of the wig you will see two hooks (1st photo) and a bunch of loops. What you do is, you put the hooks in the loops (2nd photo) to make the wig fit your head. Now, it's important that you do not put on your wig too tight (as pictured in the 2nd photo) because it will cut of circulation to your brain and give oyu a bad headache. Just put it tight enough so that it fits comfortably and the hooks will keep it from sliding out of place!



Now let's talk about my favorite part!!! THE COLORS!!! Keep in mind that I did edit the brightness on these photos so, the colors are slightly darker than they appear. Anyway, I really adore the colors in this wig. It fades from pink, to blonde, to lilac, to mint green. The colors are so beautiful and they blend to beautifully, I love it. The colors remind me of G# Fluttershy too which is a plus because now I look like a real life My Little Pony, yay!



Here's what the Hair Prism 2 in Pastel from the Rainbow Rock Collection looks like on me (no edit) and you can see how beautiful the curls are and how well the colors blend together. This wig is my new favorite and I am incredibly pleased with the overall quality, and style of this wig. This is my 3rd wig from Dolluxe so far and I will most definitely be purchasing more wigs from them in the future. I highly recommend Dolluxe to all of you! They have some really beautiful wigs and I am so pleased with the quality so, please check them out!

Mitsuwa & Sanrio Haul ♥

Hello cuties! I am here with another haul post. About a week ago, I hungout with my friend Hannah again and we did lots of fun things! We went to Mitsuwa Marketplace which, I've been wanting to do for a while and we also went to the mall but mainly, the Sanrio store. I tried really hard to not spend a lot of money so, this haul isn't going to be as big as my previous one but, I hope you enjoy it, regardless!


So, here's my entire haul! As I mentioned before, it isn't a big haul but, I hope you like it ^^


This is one of the last things I bought but, it is my favorite thing that I bought so, I'm going to talk about it first! I bought this huge Totoro backpack at Sanrio. I was walking around and my friend kept seeing me look at it and I asked her if I should buy it and she told me that I should so, I did! 


LOOK AT HIS CUTE FACE HOW COULD I SAY NO!!! The little leaf on his face is so cute waaaa~


What I loooove about this backpack is all of the space it has! I can fit my makeup bag, my phone, my 3DS XL and I still have some extra space left over. Most of my purses/bags/backpacks are tiny so, I love that I got a backpack that fits everything that I need. What I don't love however, is sometimes when I try to zip it up the zipper breaks apart and gets stuck. They only had one backpack in store otherwise I would have went to exchange it but, I just need to be extra careful so that I don't break it!!


This backpack is a lot bigger than I expected it to be but, I really really love it! I just want to carry it everywhere waaa.... <3 I'm really happy that my friend Hannah convinced me to buy it. ; u ; ♥


One of the first places we went to was this Asian market called Mistuwa Marketplace. I've been wanting to go here for a while because I heard from a few friends that they have tonssss of really cute stuff! AND YEAH THEY DID! They had this little section of the market (several actually) where you could buy various things. You can view photos of the booth that I took here and here. In that section of the market they had so many cute things from Sailor Moon merchandise to Rilakkuma  merch and they had a big section of Totoro stuff (2nd photo) and that's where I bought this little Totoro key chain! Surprisingly, everything was pretty affordable. I paid like $4 for this key chain which isn't bad at all. I wanted to buy soo many more things like the Chibi Moon pillow (1st photo) but, since it was the first place we went to I didn't want to spend a lot of money.


And lastly, I bought snacks because how can you go to an Asian market and not buy cute snacks, right? The Picky was sooo good omg it's my new fave!! and the Ramune was surprisingly pretty good. I tried the strawberry flavor and it wasn't that impressive but, I liked this one. To be honest, I just bought it for the cute packaging but I'm glad that it tastes good!


That's it for today's haul post. I know I rambled a lot but, I hope you enjoyed it! Please be sure to follow my on instagram (@pastelcutie) and like me on Facebook.

Thanks for reading!
