Of Bjd Hair: Another Wig Review and a Announcement

At long last, Usagi’s wig has finally arrived.  Anna ordered it without mentioning to either one of us until it was shipped.

But after waiting patiently for nearly a week, it finally arrived yesterday.  Poor Usagi was so anxious. (So was Hikaru.)

I must apologize for the awful lighting in the photos.  Usagi was much too excited to wait until daylight to open the package.

Anyway here is the wig, carefully wrap in plastic and netting to protect it.

The shop added their business card to the packaging.  The wig was purchased from Angelesque, which is where my wig came from (see It's Here at Last! or a Wig Review).  They service was impeccable as always.

And here is the wig. 

It was made by For My Doll and it’s  M K-002 in Pink Cream.  It’s a pleasant shade of pink, but somehow seems just a tad darker than the product photo.

And the hair somehow seems slightly rough, at least compared to my own silky flowing tresses.

Anyway, let us try it on…I mean on Usagi.

It looks well enough on her in this horrid lighting.

Though it seems she isn’t accustomed to having any sort of headwear.

And the style seems a bit off on her.  Perhaps the bangs should be trimmed, at least it would help her vision.

Now here is what it looks like during the day.  The color is much more flattering now.  I think it is a fine wig, though there are a few small flaws.  I’ll let Anna continue.

Well, Hikaru is right about the color and the texture.  The color is slightly darker in person, but that probably has to do with variations with computer screens and such.

The wig also doesn’t feel as soft as Hikaru’s wig.  I’m not sure if it’s just a difference in companies and their materials or possibly just the hair style.  This wig is curly while Hikaru’s hair is smooth and straight.

Beyond that, it is a nice wig.  There aren’t any bald spots or noticeable thin areas.

The only other issue I have is how it fits Usagi, both in size and style. 

The wig is designed to fit 7-8 inch heads.  Usagi’s head is 18 cm. or about 7.8 in. and I’m afraid it’s a little loose.  Which is why she is wearing a balloon wig cap under it to keep it on (see The Incredible Balloon Wig Cap).

As for style, I can’t help to wonder if the style suits her now that I can see it actually on her.  It’s one of the hard parts of shopping for wigs and clothes for dolls.  You can’t always try it on before buying.

But maybe with some additional styling, things will change.

Here’s how it looks with a trim.  Seems to suit her more already, and now she can see.

I will probably have to go back and trim a little more to make it more natural looking, but this will do for now.

And if we tie the curls to keep them out of her way, it seems to suit her a little more.

Maybe this wig will work better than we thought, and Usagi really likes it anyway.

I couldn’t agree more.  It looks charming on her.

“Hikaru, I want to see what it will look like you!”

For My Doll Bjd Wig K-002 Review: Wigs Switched!

Well I was a little curious what it would look like.  (She was dying to try it on.)

As expected, it looks glorious on me.  Although I do prefer my own wigs, curls do suit me so well.  Maybe if Anna found a suitable set of curlers….

My wig actually looks fairly adorable on Usagi, just to try on of course.  I’m certain if left on longer, Usagi would tangle it up horrendously.

Anyway, Usagi has finally received her wig, but that wasn’t the only package we are waiting on.  It is time for the grand announcement,  we are expecting a new doll!

And this time Anna didn’t spring it on me out of the blue.  We have discussed it often amongst ourselves.  She purchased the little one from the Junky Spot, the same store she purchased me.  Not just that, the doll is made by the same company as myself, Mystic Kids.  They are currently having a sale which presented the perfect opportunity to add to our little family.

Now to reveal which doll will be arriving shortly at our door step.  May I present:

The Mystic Kids 27 cm. Vanetta

As with myself and Usagi, she shall arrive without clothing or hair.  And, Oh dear, she is scheduled to arrive today.  So if you will please excuse me, I must prepare for her arrival.  So much to do with so little time.
