I promised you I'd talk a bit about what I brought home from Sakuracon, but we'll try to keep it pretty short and sweet. <3 nbsp="" p="">
In particular, I wanted to gush a bit about my Arda Wigs haul, because I'd been holding out for con in order to see things in person and stock up without paying shipping.
They're officially my favorite wig producer, so I look forward to picking up new pieces every year. I'll go more into my reasoning in a sec.
So first, THE PRETTIES:
Detailed from left to right:
Thingy #1: Long bangs for a side-swept look in color Lavender
I'm undecided on whether I'll trim blunt bangs into these and keep long side bangs so I can have a clip-in hime cut, or if I love the side swept enough to use them like that. We'll see.
But the reasons I love Arda so much, aside from the super versatile and cheap little pieces they sell (like these bangs, which were $12!), is that the fibers are super high quality, easy to brush, and really high temperature heat resistant. Their wigs are really MADE to be restyled!
They even sew most of their full wigs to hide the wefts if you choose to cut in layering or put them in an updo! I was blown away by how easy it was to style a really natural and beautiful updo with my first strawberry red Ferrari.
Thingy #2: Short bangs in colors Baby Pink and Ice Violet
These come with pre-cut blunt slightly side-swept bangs and hime tips. I like them quite a bit. I think with the longer bangs I'd curl the hime tips to go well with my curly hair.
Thingy #3 Victoria Wig in color Dusty Rose
This is such an incredible wig. A full, well-curled hime bump, capable of brushing out and heat-styling, for $35.
It's actually a bit thin, which made it very comfortable, but I wouldn't try to restyle it.
I might brush it out when the curls start becoming less defined.
I think it would be really pretty with the curls fluffed up.
Next up, my other purchases! I was pretty good, aside from the big wig order.
I purchased some Tsubasa style lace bunny ears for $15,
A simple hime bag for $35,
(I realized I didn't have a brown purse! So I was on the hunt for one)
And then a series of gifts! <3 p="">3>
(I'm so spoiled, hahaha)
The hat brooch, bunny ears brooch, matching ribbon bracelets, and printed stockings (seen worn in my Lolita Fashion show outfit), are all from Belladonna.
The eos lip balm and bird shaped candle were hostess gifts from one of the models, thanking me for hosting the show! So sweet! <3 nbsp="" p="">
I also decided to pop by artists alley after one of my friends working art room told me I could find stickers of the Crystal Gems.
I just discovered Steven Universe, and have been OBSESSED.
That show is life. <3 nbsp="" p="">3>
So I needed all of my moms in sticker form to put on random stuff.
(The girl at the booth even gave me some angry space doritos! I bought so many stickers she gave me freebies, hahaha)
I got big sizes of my favorites to decorate something major.
And I found an artist selling Adventure time stickers!
As well as a darling Rarity keychain, and a mini-print of the Crystal Moms. <3 p="">
I am made of love!
