Kuriyama Mirai cosplay – Kyoukai no Kanata

Time for another cosplay! After I did my No Game No Life – Shiro Cosplay, I felt really excited about doing another one. And then I stumbled upon a costume over at Tosinshop on Rakuten, with Kuriyama Mirai from Kyoukai no Kanata. Since I’m not really a “real” cosplayer, and I’m terribly bad at sewing, I’m perfectly happy with buying my cosplays from other shops instead ^_^

Some thoughts about the costume:
I didn’t order the weapon accessories (especially since I already had my red glasses), but you can choose to order just the costume, + sweater, + wig, and + weapons, if you want. I ordered L size, and it fit me quite perfectly. Except for the pink sweater which was a bit too small in my opinion. Since Kuriyama Mirai has more of an oversized sweater in the anime. And I am kind of small (~ 163 cm), so if you’re a tall person it might not fit at all.

不愉快です。\(//∇//)\

I didn’t really have the right shoes, but these brown ones will have to do. I bought them at Deichmann a few years ago.

 

And I actually didn’t wear any lenses, since the only hazel coloured lenses I have are with prescription, and my glasses already have prescription so I would get all dizzy wearing double lenses haha. But I think I’m going to order lenses without prescription just for this cosplay ~

12 nights in Tokyo

… or actually it was only 11.

As I blogged about earlier I visited Tokyo last year during Halloween, October – November. It was a wonderful (but far too short) trip. I took some photos which I posted earlier, but I also recorded some video clips. And now I’ve FINALLY managed to put them together in a little video – featuring Halloween in Shibuya, karaoke, cats and lots of sake!  if you want to read more about my trip, be sure to check out this blogpost ~

Was filming with a Sony a580 + Sigma 50mm macro lens, handheld. And I’ve also put in some clips that my boyfriend shot with his GoPro. Edited in Premiere Pro.

Review: Geo Eyescream Vanilla Brown

Woah, I got some new amazing circle lenses in the mail! :D From www.geocolouredlenses.com

GEO Medical is one of the most reliable and safest international circle lens brand, and all their products are genuine. Most of their circle contact lenses are also available with prescription. They also offer FREE international shipping and a FREE lens case for each pair of circle contact lenses purchased.

Since I really love my Geo HoliCat Barbie Hazel lenses (that unfortunately only have a life span of 1 month ;_; ), I wanted to find something similar, but with a longer life span. So I decided to try these ones!

Color & Design:
★★★★☆ (4/5)
The design is simple but beautiful. However, the effect is not as strong as the Geo HoliCat Barbie Hazel lenses that I have. But the color blends very well with my natural blue/green/grey eye color, so I think they look very natural on me. But I would have loved it if the color would pop out more. I miss that golden hazel look.

Enlargement:
★★★★☆ (3.5/5)
Since these lenses are 14.5 mm they aren’t the biggest lenses around, but they still give that little extra enlargement. I think the subtle enlargement effect is very nice, and the design make your eyes stand out a bit more.

Comfort:
★★★★★ (5/5)
So far these lenses have been super comfortable. I managed to wear them to an 8 hour or so family gathering with ease. They’re not super big either, so I think that helps a lot too.

..:*°..:*°..:*°..:*°

As always I really like ordering my lenses from geocolouredlenses.com. The staff is always very nice and helpful. When they shipped my order they immediately sent a tracking number for it so I could see the status of my order. The shipping usually takes about 10-21 working days, and I think my order took about two or three weeks to arrive.

Review: Geo Princess Mimi Sesame Grey

Helloooo! It’s time for another circle lens review from www.geocolouredlenses.com!

And this time I wanted to try out the oh so popular Geo Princess Mimi Sesame Grey (aka Bambi series), the famous circle lens pattern designed by Tsubasa Masuwaka. I know there probably are hundreds of reviews out there already of these particular lenses, but I’ve been wanting to try them for so long. Especially since I already have the Apple Green ones, and they are so nice and comfortable. So I was really excited to try out the Sesame Grey.

Specification

Diameter: 15.0mm
Base Curve: 8.70mm
Water Content: 40±2%
Material: Polymacon

Color & Design:
★★★★☆ (4/5)
I really love the design of these lenses! But since they are so close to my natural color, the color don’t really do much difference.. But on the other hand they blend very well!

Enlargement:
★★★★★ (5/5)
Well I wouldn’t have expected anything less from these 15.0mm lenses. And while they are big, they’re not too overwhelming and looks quite natural after all. And the pattern and dark outer line really make my eyes pop.

Comfort:
★★★★★ (5/5)
The thing I like most about the Princess Mimi series is how comfortable they are. Despite their size these lenses are very comfortable. After wearing them for a while I barely feel them at all, and I can wear them for several hours without my eyes drying up. Perfect when going to a party. However I never wear big lenses like this for too long. It’s important to let your eyes breathe.

To sum it up, I’m very happy with these lenses. I love the design, they give my eyes an intense look and they are very comfortable.

So thank you so much geocolouredlenses for letting me try these lenses! The staff are always so kind and helpful. I don’t think you can find better service anywhere else. And I always feel very safe getting my lenses from them, since GEO Medical is one of the most reliable and safest international circle lens brand, and all their products are genuine. Most of their circle contact lenses are also available with prescription. They also offer FREE international shipping and a FREE lens case for each pair of circle contact lenses purchased.

DivasWigs.com Synthetic Lace Front Ombre Wig – REVIEW

I recently received a wonderful lace front Ombre wig from www.divaswigs.com! So here is a short review ^_^

This is the first time I’m doing a video review…! and I think you can tell that I’m not very comfortable doing it, since I really don’t like my weird scandinavian accent when speaking english.. And I’m SO SORRY about the poor audio quality. I don’t have a microphone so I just used the built in mic from my camera (Sony a580) and it turned out really bad.. but I hope you enjoy the video anyway!
