ZAFUL Dress Review

Hey friends <3
Back again with another review! Once again it's a dress from Zaful, and while it's not exactly a cosplay I couldn't help but arrange a Wanda Maximoff-esque shoot for it. This dress just suits her too well <3 I love grunge-y, bohemic clothes so naturally I picked this dress super fast! The only shame is I cannot wear it with my natural hair color because the colors clash too much, haha. Wigs it is!

Summary and sizes
The dress is called "Solid Color Ruffled Long Sleeve Dress" and is a gorgeous linen dress in a warm orange color. The model in the photo is wearing a lot of necklaces which sort of hides the gorgeous collar and lacing. The neckline is ruffled and dips down into a v-line with lacing fake-leather strings. 

The midriff is sewn elastic, to make the dress fit most wearers no matter waist measurements. The arms end in cuffs with cloth clad buttons, and the skirt of the dress is shorter in front but billows out longer in the back. It weighs in at roughly 0,5kg.

At the moment the dress costs 49,99$, and is available only in the orange color on the picture. It comes in sizes M and L, and since I have long legs I choose L for my dress. In hindsight I probably should have picked M since the arms were a bit too long on me, but otherwise the length was good :)

It's SUCH a shame this color clashes with my red hair, because otherwise I would wear this dress forever. This is probably my favorite clothing item out of the ones I've reviewed for Zaful <3 It's so comfortable and cozy. Since it's made out of linen it holds the warmth even in cold weather, and even so the long sleeves can easily be unbuttoned and rolled up, should the weather be too hot. 

I've experimented a bit with what to wear with this dress. It's dangerously short (probably because I have long legs), so when I've worn this dress to school I've opted for either skinny jeans under, or worn shorts over stockings. In true Wanda-fashion, the dress is perfect for knee-highs with or without tights under. Because of it's grunge look it goes well with both combat boots and heels, again depending on weather. 

I don't know why, but I'm always worried about seams ripping whenever a clothing item is supposed to be pulled over ones head for wearing. But the elastic band in this dress can be stretched to insane lengths, so luckily I needn't worry this time :P The quality is great and after wearing it maybe three times I still haven't noticed anything defect with the quality. As linen often does, the dress wrinkles easily, but that's just life I guess :P 

This review was severely delayed because of various reasons. BanzaiCon, Comic Con, sickness and university and I can keep going forever. I actually ordered this dress at the same time as the last Zaful item I reviewed, even though it arrived later than the previous. Anyway, Zaful has been most understanding and sweet what with my hectic schedule and all, and I'm so thankful for that. It's truly a joy to work with a company where both parts have understanding and respect towards each other <3

Vampire the Masquerade Photoshoot (Set #1)

We premiered our Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines group for Comic Con, finally!
This is one of the best games I've ever played, but since it's not exactly new I never imagined we could have an entire cosplay group from it, but we actually did. We had so much fun with this group (#vampirefam<3) and I can't wait to make this gorup happen again. We have gained a lot of characters just these past few days, and will have an even larger group next time!

We had a couple of photoshoots with this group, which means a lot of photos. I will post these photos in sets, to make it easier to give each photo its spotlight. So this will be Photo set #1 out of several :)

Pinky Paradise Mesh Contacts Review

Hello people!
Hope you all had a great Halloween, I sure did!

Before Halloween I got the opportunity to make a Halloween transformation video for, using any of their contact lenses. Since I'm always a sucker for crazy and odd lenses, the choice wasn't difficult!

Since I am still stuck in my Steven Universe-phase, I wanted to combine my Halloween look with one of the characters form this amazing tv-show. Which is why I decided to do my own take on Lapis Lazuli, in her cracked gem form!

My idea was basically that it would have been really cool if her physical form reflected her cracked gem (or even her mirror form??).

As always, I made a video tutorial on this look and you can find it here;

Info about the contacts;

Name: Princess Pinky Cosplay White Mesh (With Prescription)
Prescription: Yes
Diameter: 14,5mm
Water content: 38%
Base curve: 8.6mm

The contacts are super comfortable and fits me well. Since they have a mesh layer, my vision is slightly blurry while I'm wearing them. This is nothing that can be avoided with contacts like these though. I'm super satisfied with my contacts and highly recommend you to get them if you want a similar look!
