Overall, I liked how the RainCos wig took all the brunt from my movements but was tidier and manageable than the KuCos wig.
Got the wig from Oujihimeshoppe.
Fast replies, good service and fair prices! (Will write a separate review for them and other shops)
The photo sets are from two separate shoots, identifiable through the costume I was currently wearing. Another wonderful thing aside the wig were those perfect purple lenses that I need to find again! Will review them once I find which brand this is.
I usually update my blog Wednesdays and Fridays!
Delve into the Details:
I trimmed it a bit for Rory Mercury's hair, it was generally very soft and easy to style. The wig was also VERY photogenic, personally I have a fear of overly shiny wigs with direct flash or intense sunlight.
As you can see on these two photos below, one showcasing harsh sunlight and another extremely close and focused flash. It did so well, am pretty happy.
Value for Money:
Am possibly willing to pay for more, the price would still be fair if it was at 1,800php - 2,000php flat (Around $41 - $46)
But it was only for 1,295php or $30 which was a bargain for the quality. The leather was soft, and the holes on the belts actually fitted my hand. IMAGINE THAT! When most belts don't even fit me as I need to punch in an extra hole to get a built to be useful, I was amazed at how 'small' they imagined their possible audience was. I like the tarnished gold that was used on the buttons as well as the color they used for the thread, as it complimented the dark leathers beautifully! They could've gone with shinier buttons and black thread which could've easily made it look cheap.
Tiny issue was that it covered the entire span of my arm, which if it was a real hidden blade, would probably kill me instead of my target. The blade would, in all it's glory, tear off the skin of my wrist. Am not complaining that's a rookie Assassin mistake. But, it's not really a hidden blade and I was still able to play my Vita games while looking badass. Or I'd like to imagine I looked badass...
But I'm actually itching to buy another one...because it's customary to wear 2, plus Ezio wore 2. SO ENOUGH SAID.
I'll probably get another one
iTECH Customer Service/Overall Review:
So enough about the item, where did I get it? I got it fro iTech Makati, Glorietta 4 Branch
Their items are nicely priced and they cover much more than your average gaming store. Am a little sad that it's only recently that I've come to notice their shop to be honest. Am glad I got Project Diva F2nd from them and this little beauty. They replied to my inquiries even though it was around 8pm, they were clear, concise and seriously respectful I felt old (which I sort of am I guess)

The Heirloom Manila-
Just google it and you'll be barraged by hundreds of beautiful shots so really first impressions are raised high. You can see classy interiors that could match 60's to even cosplay themes. There's a play of gold, auburns and striking reds in most of the photos and they're nothing short of photogenic.
The gate is a striking red, with black embellishments so it's hard to miss. Customer service is awesome, but maybe too much so. As the owner was there flocking us as we took the shots, and that's a HUGE pet peeve of mine. It's all personal preference but I'd really rather no one else was watching as I did poses. This is even "Cantarella Miku" so I was pretty much covered from head to toe but I was seriously conscious of myself. The owner would talk to both of us (Model and Photographer) And it would disrupt certain aspects of the shoot. I get in-character as time progresses, and being talked to about 'old shoots' in his venue and how he got certain items is fun and all but that always brought me back to 'me' which in the end wasn't helpful to being sullen Miku
Word of caution: Remember that I am a completely unbiased individual who paid for services. And I would honestly comment on how I saw it or how happy I am of the said services. So if you are affiliated with the business, please take this as a learning curve, be it positive or negative
Good location, easily accessible and with at least one more choice for a backdrop other than the usual white/black/monochrome backgrounds. A bit larger than usual studios as their photos and website advertised some areas that piqued my interest.
It’s the same as other studios maybe even less. They had 5 lights in total, a huge reflector and 4 colours for the backdrops and a minimum rental of 3 hours.
A good image, can be made better through processing it would be rather ignorant to neglect learning software as they progress almost monthly (or even daily). Not all photographs need to undergo processing of course, but it would help if you know how to erase that stray hair that bothers your client -- instead of reshooting for such a minor detail.
