Cosplay Wigs USA/Gothic Lolita Wigs Review: Three Wigs! 
12th-Jan-2011 10:19 pm

I've recently added three more wigs to my lovely wig collection thanks to Cosplay Wigs USA. I did a review previously, and I can indeed say that I have had another wonderful experience shopping with them. I focused a lot on the fiber quality on the last review, and these wigs have fantastic quality, just as expressed before. I was even lucky enough to get a wig commissioned from them, as I will further explain below! =) 

Since my last review, they have now completed their website:
In addition to a facebook page with a facebook shop, which has many special restocks that show up before listed on the website:

The first wig is a lavenderxpink blend, which I worked with Cosplay Wigs USA/Gothic Lolita Wigs as a commission. They were very friendly and helpful in the counseling process concerning the wig, which was extremely beneficial as a first experience commissioning something. ^^ They decided to put the wig into production, as well, which is very exciting! It is in their facebook shop for the time being. Now onto the pictures:

This is a three piece set and is four inches longer than their popular "Wavy" series. I will start off first by saying, this wig is VOLUMINOUS. The curls are bouncy, and this wig has some mega volume! It's fine to wear without the wig falls as well, which is nicer for more casual days.

A close-up of the bangs shows how flawlessly the lavender blends into the pink. 

The bangs are also thick, but not overpoweringly so. This is good for slight wig cap slip ups, which happens to me sometimes, so it's nice to have the assurance that my real hair won't be peeking out through thin bangs. =)

A side view of just the base wig. I love how fluent the blending is!

A frontal view with the wig falls attached. As stated before, this wig has -a lot- of volume. Before with some of my more casual wigs, I found it hard to make the wig appear to have more volume, and ended up parting it in the back and pushing much of it forward in front of my shoulders. This is not the case with this one. Some of the locks can be sectioned off to the back without sacrificing its volume in the front. ^_^

Back view. When I put it on the box, I had to hold it in place or it would have tumbled over. ^.^;;

A picture worn! It easily comes down to my waist, I am 5'4".  It really is so lovely, and I managed to buy a lavender scarf the day before to go with it! =D

Next is their line that they have labeled as "Classic Auburn/Rust" in color. I was particularly excited when this wig was released because it is a few shades brighter than my own natural color. My hair is a deeper auburn, so it made me giddy to have the hair color I had when I was younger =3

Here is the stock photo, I was concerned that this wig might be a little thin, but I was very surprised to find how versatile it is in thickness! I have worn photos later on to show this.

Here is a front view. I apologize for it being off center on the mannequin head, that is my mistake. ^^;

Front view on the table. ^^

Back view. It looks so lifelike!

Here is what impressed me the most: the fibers are not one single color, but mixed in different shades to make it look like real hair! I wish I could capture this how it is in real life *.* This is my most natural looking wig that I own, even my boyfriend thought it could be my real hair if my hair was longer. x3

This wig is very versatile, as stated earlier. While it looks like it may be a little thin, a really good trick is to turn the wig cap inside out, and shake it to get volume, and even some light teasing to hold the volume. Sorry for so many pictures worn, but I tried to show that in these pictures:

They are in the order of natural (no teasing), shaking it inside out (no teasing), shaking it inside out (with teasing.) I was surprised how big it could get!)

The final wig is in the color mint in the "wavy" series. This was the first line that Cosplay Wigs USA came out with only in the shade "deep pink" at first, but has now broadened into many of the colors of the lolita rainbow ^.^

Here is the stock photo:

This wig also comes with two detachable wig falls. To me, it looks very dreamy, the perfect lolita mint.

Closeup of the bangs/fringe. The perfect thickness for those wig-cap slippin' woes. XD

One huge positive for me personally is the face-framing layers. It curves around my chin perfectly, and this is a huge plus because sometimes those layers can tend to be short.  This is sometimes the deciding factor that can make a wig LOOK like a wig, so not only does it look lovely, also adds that wig cap coverage for the baby hair on by the ear that can't always be covered by a wig cap. Hope that makes sense? XD

Base wig front. The curls are so soft~

With clip ins!

Worn! ^^

Communication: 5/5
They always respond to messages quickly, and are very active on their facebook. They are willing to answer any questions, and have even taken up many commissions lately, which is lovely! =D
Shipping: 5/5
Like always, shipping was free with the US. Took three days around Christmas in a priority package. ^_^
Quality: 10/5
I am always impressed with the quality put into the products, I've built up a fine collection of wigs from them at a low price relative to buying from Asian websites. I have not regretted a single purchase x3 
Overall: 5/5
These wigs are absolutely wonderful. I'm afraid I've been wearing them more often than my real hair. XD; Perfect, I couldn't ask for more!

Thank you for reading my review! <3

Wow!! I love the second one! So cute!
13th-Jan-2011 04:32 am (UTC)
I've been curious about the Auburn for a while. Now that I've seen it real color, I'm not so sure I can pull it off. *sigh*

But, all three look lovely on you!

I don't care a lot for the pink and blue you had already, but these are all lovely on you, and you are SO adorable.

Thank you so much for commissioning the PinkxLavender! I bought it, and it arrived today! I love it sooooo much! <3
13th-Jan-2011 04:51 am (UTC)
thanks for this review -- i was curious about the "classic auburn" and if i hadn't already decided to take the plunge during the sale that ended yesterday, this would have convinced me to get it :)
13th-Jan-2011 04:58 am (UTC)
Ack you've made me realllly want that classic wig now *__*
13th-Jan-2011 05:08 am (UTC)
oh man, these all look crazy soft and nice! you also look super cute in all of them. thanks for the review!
13th-Jan-2011 05:13 am (UTC)
you convinced me. I've been thinking of getting one, but that red one did it for me. I'm going to buy it when I get the money!
13th-Jan-2011 05:23 am (UTC)
I just made an order with them and received my wig, and it's A+. I love this company! I can't believe I didn't start buying from them sooner.
13th-Jan-2011 05:26 am (UTC)
I'm glad they respond to you quickly, because they have been incredibly slow with me. I asked for a commission to see if they could do it weeks ago. Finally the other day I got fed up and asked again and they finally answered, but not with a "Yes, we can" or "No we cannot" more with a "How about this wig we already have, which isn't what you want?" I inquired about the wig they suggested further anyway, and again no answer.

I like your purple/pink though it's so cute
13th-Jan-2011 07:14 am (UTC)
LOL THIS. I haven't been able to get a reply out of them for a commission either. ):
13th-Jan-2011 05:35 am (UTC)
The mint looks amazing on you. This is really cool to see.
13th-Jan-2011 05:57 am (UTC)
Wow! I so want one now! Thanks for the great review ^^
13th-Jan-2011 05:58 am (UTC)
You are the lucky type who looks great with any kind of wig :)
13th-Jan-2011 06:39 am (UTC)
You are soo cute!
How much extra did they charge to make the pinkxlavendel?
'cuz im thinking about email them and ask if they can do a pink x blond split :3
13th-Jan-2011 02:15 pm (UTC)
It was about $10 more than the base price for me. =)
13th-Jan-2011 06:47 am (UTC)
wow, that lavender wig is beautiful!
13th-Jan-2011 06:48 am (UTC)
you looks gorgeous, and the wigs are so pretty on you:) thanks for the review!
13th-Jan-2011 06:59 am (UTC)

13th-Jan-2011 07:07 am (UTC)
I love all three wigs and I am definitely going to have to get some wigs from them when I have more money! All three look very cute on you!
13th-Jan-2011 07:13 am (UTC)
Ahh yeahh, I just love GLW's wigs, they're beautiful ;AAAA;

I have a question about commissioning them, since it seems like you've gotten a custom wig done by them~ If it's alright, can you tell me if you asked them through facebook or email? I emailed them a while ago about commissioning a wig &never really got a reply, would it be faster to ask about a commission through facebook maybe?

&yeahh stay adorable, those wigs look great on you ♥

I always get replies within (AT MOST) a day if I ask on their facebook.
