I love wigs. I guess I'm afraid to wear them out of the house. I worry that they'll fall off or that people will stare. In high school, I wore a wig for a spirit day and totally got harrassed. One ass wipe even tugged on it!! Anyway, here are some wigs that I've acquired recently.
#1: The Chubby Blonde Gyaru
This is a Cyperous wig that I bought from Glamorous Sky. It's a good style (and definitely feels gyaru) but the color doesn't totally suit me. It sounds crazy but I think this color makes me look fat. Also, it doesn't seem quite long enough. I think it's my big American head.
#2: The Dark Brown Charlie's Angel
This wig (and the next) is from Wig Factory here in San Francisco. I think the color (dark brown) and style really suit me. I took a chance buying this one because the display model was a different color but I wanted to buy a dark brown wig so my honey could see what I looked like with dark hair. He'd been bugging me about trying a darker shade and I think he liked the wig. This wig actually makes me consider dark brown hair, although I will probably maintain my light brown loyalty!
#3: The Chubby Blonde Cosplay Exotic Dancer
This wig is also in "chubby blond" but I love the thickness of it. I don't know how attractive it is on me, but I really like it. I think I need to do something to make it look more realistic. When I first tried it on, I thought I looked like an exotic dancer (but fatter) but this photo almost makes me look like I am cosplaying or something.
Pin has a super helpful video on wigs here.
I went to J-town (or N-machi, lol) yesterday to get like one thing from Daiso and ended up buying a bunch of stuff at Ichiban Kan and Daiso. Plus, I went to Kinokuniya and was dumb there, too.
This is my
junk treasures. I put on my fluffy socks (bottom of photo) before taking this photo. I highly recommend them, especially if you live somewhere cold, like San Francisco! Actually, of everything I got, I was most excited about my Hello Kitty earwax cleaner! When I lived in Japan, I learned that no one uses q-tips to clean their ears (doctors say not to anyway) but they use a special tool.
At Kinokuniya, I bought three magazines. Actually two are more like mooks.
I was really disappointed with Nuts and Jelly, which used to be some of my favorite gyaru magazines. I looked through them and every outfit seemed way too "mature." I know I'm
old on the older side for gyaru and maybe should start dressing mature, but I'm not ready! I want to wear fun stuff.
The thing that I initially liked about gyaru was that it was a fun style--even among the different styles there seemed to be an element of fun. These more mature styles are just boring to me. Sorry, I know a lot of people love these styles but to me, they just look like H&M clothes.
The Momoko mook/magazine I bought for the awesome illustrations. I think I'll actually frame some of them! The clothes are actually on the boring side. :/
Egg has some really cute, cool clothes this month. There is actually a manba model, too! I was surprised.
The other mook is just nail designs. If I had a scanner, I'd scan some pages. They're really cute!
