January/February 2015 Haul
Heart & Spike Garter ~ eBay ~ $8.99
I forgot to include this in my video! Oops. I am obsessed with these though and want so many other type of, not only garters, but elastic and chain top and arm pieces, as well. The spikes are screw on so you do have to be cautious of them coming unscrewed and falling off (I've had it happened but luckily found the spike and made sure to tighten them all~they loosen up after a while though). Everything else about it seems fine and well made. It's adjustable not only because of the elastic in the back but because it's also an adjustable strap (meaning u can make the elastic band longer or shorter~think backpack straps).
Pink Crystal - gift
Got another crystal!! This one's from a friend. I love the way this one is wrapped and the style of string it came with. I most definitely need to pick up some more!
Purple Lipstick ~ eBay ~ $2.48
This was color #3 on the exact listing. It's a very pigmented purple. I wish it would've been a darker purple but it's alright since it can be darkened up with an ombre effect (which I have a tutorial for on my YouTube channel). It seems to last for a decent amount of time, but like most, isn't immune to drinking and eating.
32 Piece Pink Makeup Brush Kit ~ eBay ~ $11.99
The kit is so pretty. All the brushes are well designed along with the packaging. The brushes themselves are soft and have little to no shedding. It comes with such a large variety of brushes too! They all work well. I am a little sad that it didn't come with a flat top brush but I was able to just pick up that specific brush individually.
Pastry & Sweets Erasers ~ gift
No idea where you find these (I believe I seen them in arts & craft isles at different stores like Target and Walmart). I prefer to use them for some cute little decorations rather than actual erasers.
Backpack ~ eBay ~ $12.96
It looked slightly more pink in the original photos I saw but it's alright. I plan to make a cover for my Annie cosplay. Overall, the actual backpack itself is very well made, light and comfortable to carry and super cute. It's also quite spacious for being a smaller bag.
White Tall Boots ~ eBay ~ $19.99
I bought these in a size 5. They are true to size and fit extremely well. They're also really well made and fairly comfortable to wear (for being heels). The heels aren't too tall or thin either for those who prefer shorter heels or wedges (making them easier to walk in and for longer, as well).
Luna Tights ~ eBay ~ $4.74
I believe I forgot to show these in the video as well. I also can't find the exact listing on eBay but just search "Luna Tights". They're well made. The black color is actual fabric and not just painted on. The only "painted on" aspects are the facial details and it won't fade easily. They're fairly thick tights meaning they won't rip or tear easily either (but must still be treated with care, obviously). They're really well made and I'm extremely happy with them. Super cute and great for Sailor Moon fans!
Tibbers ~ Riot Merch ~ $37
It's $30 and was $7 shipping. It arrived at a decent speed (I believe it ships from the United States). It's a decent size for the price and extremely well made and soft. Perfect for my upcoming Annie cosplay too!
Strawberry Hair Rollers ~ eBay ~ $1.83
These are cute sponge hair rollers you use to curl your hair. You wrap your hair in them while it's wet then remove them once dry. They're sponge material so it's comfortable to sleep with them in. They're also easy to use.
Sanrio Stationary ~ gift
I love stationary. Especially cutesy one. I have a lot of Sanrio stationary so this fits right in! It's always super cute and makes for great letters (when you have reason to send them xD). The packaging for the stationary is adorable, as well.
Pink Pigtail Wig ~ eBay ~ $10.50
I won my wig in an auction so the link is not exact. The wig is extremely nice. It's really thick and long and has little to no shedding. It's also very soft and comfortable to wear.
Pink & Brown Wig ~ eBay ~ $12.50
I won this wig in an auction but it's easy to find if you just search brown and pink wig. The fringe does come at the length shown in the photo instead of the usually longer length to allow personal styling. It is also a bit on the thinner side but not so thin it's unusable (I just prefer really thick wigs). It has little to no shedding.
Manga Studio Program ~ gift
I have yet to really use this program so I can't give too much of a review on it. I do believe this is an older version. I can't give a cost or where to find it since it was a gift, but I'm sure through Google it'll be able to be found.
Gesso ~ eBay ~ $6.44
I can't find the exact listing but I'm sure it can also be found at local craft stores for possibly cheaper. This stuff is great for covering props and smoothing out and seams or lines. Can be sanded and doesn't take too long to try.
Heat Gun ~ Harbor Freight ~ $9
From the brand Drill Master. It was on sale for half off when I purchased it. It's just a basic heat gun and works great.
Dremel 7300 ~ Walmart ~ $30ish
Works great. It was the cheapest rotary tool they had. Very basic and came with 5 accessories. Can fit with any other Dremel accessories later if needed.
Red Bodysuit ~ eBay ~ $14.37
Fits true to size. Doesn't have TOO much stretch but does have enough. It's very shiny. Seems to be pretty well made.
