☆Review- Redstar Cosplay- Attack on Titan Shingeki no Kyojin Recon Corps / Army Coat / Top Jacket - All Embroidery patches~

Hey guys! Today I have a cosplay merchandise review for you all on Redstar Cosplay's SNK Recon Corps Jackets! I got one in Pleather, although they come in Cotton as well.

These Jackets are great, so keep on reading if you'd like to look in to one!

Here's the package right out of the mail!

I chose this jacket as I planned on cosplaying Eren and Armin from Attack on Titan, and I thought the leather would look nice and sharp, and match the boots.

~Detailed Review~

Look: ☆☆☆☆
This jacket is really quality looking! It looks like real leather, regardless of simply being pleather, and the color is a perfect match and exactly what I was expecting. It appears much thicker than it is, which is a good thing. I wont be dying in the heat of Georgia convention weather!

Fit: ☆☆☆
This jacket is a little boxy on me because I have a weird body type! I think I may be too big for me, but its not so big that I can't deal with it. Other than that, everything checks out great! The sleeves are long enough, which is usually a worry with my long arms.

Quality: ☆☆☆☆☆
I couldn't ask for a better quality! All of the patches are perfectly embroidered with no loose threads or seams, and the jacket doesn't look like it's going to fall apart any time soon! It's not cheap feeling and I have already recommended this to several friends, one of them already having purchased.

Overall: ☆☆☆☆
This jacket was really nice! The only complaint I have is the awkward sizing, which isn't really that far off to begin with. It's very soft pleather and comfortable to the skin (not scratchy) and I would recommend these to anyone looking for an SNK Jacket! 

Thank you so much RedStar Cosplay for the opportunity!

~☆MJCollective Phone case, Keychain, and accessory Review!

Hi Guys! Rather than a contact lens review, like I've had the last few days, I've got a phone case and accessory review for you guys, courtesy of Morgan from MJCollective on Store envy!

So I'm going to show you all everything that came in the packaging, as well as the packaging itself! Warning, pic dump.

The phone case! It is for an Iphone 5! I asked Morgan to surprise me and she found something that basically embodies my entire fashion sense okay lol. Red, black and spooky. Everyhting is cemented with what looks kinda like icing, but is obviously some sort of super strong hold adhesive! Nothing has fallen off yet!!

Super cute headphone jack plugs!

Agh I wish Iphones had a charm slot! I love this keychain!!

I cant wait to adorn something with these omg they're super shiny and sturdy pins.

So, as you can see, Morgan sent me tons of really cute goodies! 
The phone case itself is so freaking adorable, holy cow?? I asked her to surprise me and gave her a general basic of interest and she couldn't have picked a better case. Red and black with creepy things are definitely a fave of mine, as you can see by my blog here hahah.

She also sent me a pair of wing pins, which I plan on pinning to my favorite denim vest, or maybe a hat!

She sent 2 headphone jack plugs with flower charms! The black on is in my phone right now!

Lastly. I was SUPER excited about the little macaron key-chain/cell phone charm. Why don't iPhones have a slot for these things?? I settled for chaining it to my lanyard haha.

Everything that was sent to me was in pristine condition! Also the Ziploc baggy was super cute, oops lol. 
I'm a sucker for packaging. 

I was really pleased with everything Morgan sent me and you guys should totally check her store out! Everything is reasonably priced! I've had the phone case on for a few days now and it had yet to lose any pieces!

You all should check out MJCollective!

Thank you so much Morgan for allowing me this opportunity!

☆Review- Uniqso Beuberry CA Violet Lenses~

Hey guys, another review here for you all today. This time I've got lenses by Uniqso, a very underrated lens shop who happens to sell nearly all of what larger lens shops sell, though under a different name for for much cheaper. Today I'm reviewing Beuberry CA Violet lenses which are literally identical to VASSEN Lollipop Violet, although these are much cheaper. These Lenses are specifically noted for light eyes, although they show up vibrantly on any eye color!

PLEASE visit Uniqso through that link! It's my tracking link, so that they can monitor how well I'm referring! Simply search the product name in the search bar. 

For this store, the coupon code "spectre" will earn you 10% off!!

This is the packaging the lenses came in! It comes all neatly in a little box with a free lens case! The lens case has a sticker where you can record the expiration date, which I've never seen before. 

 This is what they looked like in the vile and also what they look like in the lens case provided by Uniqso! As you can see, they are a rich indigo color with a thin black ring around the outside as well as black and yellow shards of color inside the ring of the design.

I specifically chose these lenses for a Tamaki Suoh cosplay, as they are a blue-toned purple and ended up looking just right for what I was going for!
These are an identical VASSEN Lollipop replica, and as someone who own name brand Vassen Lollipop lenses, I can assure that they are perfect dupes.
These are NOT available in prescription as of right now! 
These lenses are $17.90 USD, and even cheaper if you use the 10% discount code, "spectre"!

These are my eyes in natural lighting with no lenses in!

This photo is with both lenses in, photographed in natural window lighting, They are SO pretty?? I see why they are called "Lollipop" because they look kinda like candy? Like candy shards. I dunno lol.

This is a side-by-side so that its easier to compare them together! These lenses are pretty big. Super sugoi or whatever. My natural iris is also so tiny what the heck lol.

Here's a non-close up of my face with the lenses. Haha. sorry about the expression??

~In Depth Review~

These fit absolutely perfectly. There is absolutely no shifting or anything funky like that, and the size is really nice and big, which is what I was going for with these lenses because they are meant for an anime character cosplay!

These lenses are awesome! They look like broken hard candy! They are huge at a 15/16 diameter and the color of them is very vibrant. There is no discoloration or badly printed color.

For knock-off lenses these are actually perfect! There don't seem to be any discrepancies between these and the real lenses. The printing is perfect and they do not shift or seem to blur.


I really can't complain about anything haha. These lenses are exactly as advertised, cheaper than anywhere else that sells the same lens, the color shows up on  my eye color, and they are comfortable. Can't say anything badly!

Thanks for the wonderful opportunity Uniqso! You are actually the first company to sponsor me lenses and I'm extremely honored! 

Remember to use the coupon code "spectre" for 10% off!

☆Review- Pinky Paradise ☆NEW☆ Princess Pinky Radiance Hazel Lenses~

Hello! I've got another review today of some new arrivals from Pinky Paradise! They are the Princess Pinky Radiance Hazel lenses and they are from a line consisting of all very detailed and vibrant colors for both dark and light eyes.

Make sure to use the coupon code "Spectre" for a mystery gift at check-out!

Here's the packaging as well as the animal cases they send with every pair of lenses!

These lenses, again, are Princess Pinky Radiance Hazel! I chose them specifically for an Aoba cosplay from DMMD as I expected them to come in a bit browner, although they are much more Orange in person, and I'm actually really happy about that. They are BEAUTIFUL like wow?? 

If you are looking to cosplay any orange eyed character or you just want to look mystical or inhuman these are awesome. The best thing about them in my opinion is that they appear really natural in design. They are not just flat color.
The only current downside to these is that they do NOT come in prescription as of now! :(
These are priced at $28.90 USD and well worth it!!

These are my eyes in natural window lighting before wearing any lenses!

This is with both of the lenses in! They appear a little muddier on my eye color, as my eyes are naturally light.
These would probably appear even more stunning on dark eyes! This photo is also in natural window lighting.

This photo is of only contact lens in, so to show how the lenses affect my eyes side-by-side!
As you can see, they appear both larger and somewhat more enchanted with the lenses in.

Lastly, here is a full-face shot of me wearing the circle lenses! They give a very "Vampy" look and I really love that, haha.

~In Depth Review~

These lenses are really great in size at 14.5 mm in diameter, which is fairly large for what I'm used to, although I like it for this pair! The only fitting issue I noted is that the left contact shifts a little. 

These lenses are freaking spectacular in design! I LOVE that I finally got my hands on a pair of orange lenses that look natural, as opposed to "Orange Manson" lenses, which are just flat and boring. These truly look magnificent and I think that they will give each unique eye color a separate effect.

The printing on these is incredible, as I said they are very detailed and realistic looking. The only quality issue I can mention, is again, the slight shifting in the left contact lens.

I love these! They're crazy pretty and definitely a new favorite pair!! I really want to get my hands on the other colors in the Radiance Hazel line.

Thank you so much Pinky Paradise for this awesome chance! I look forward to the next quarterly pair of sponsored lenses!!
