[Cosplay] New wigs, new luck? Not exactly...

Two days ago I received wigs from Cosplay Salon. Which kind of confused me, because I ordered them at amazon, and they were listed under a different provider, but well, whatever. The package said "Cosplay Salon - Anyone can cosplay".

I ordered this wig for my Clary Fray cosplay. My first impression (during the first few seconds) was pretty good, until I noticed how messed up the hairline was. 
It really looks ruffled, and I don't like that. But after brushing it I think this wig is quite okay. 
Maybe not that perfect for closeups. But the wig was quite cheap, so... Well, I have to add: I've purchased wigs with better quality for that price. It depends on how you see it.
But still, I will use this for my Clary cosplay.
Since I am always thinking of ways to reuse wigs, I tried to come up with characters from different animes/movies/etc. But the only two costumes I could think of were Black Widow from The Avengers and a fox costume for carneval (yes, the animal).

Let's talk about the other wig.
It seems like a mistake happened when I wanted to purchase this wig, because my first choice was another wig (which I just found on the Cosplay Salon website), but they wouldn't send it to Austria. So I chose another one, which was originally made for a Ken Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul) Cosplay, but it looked like it was appropiate for my Bell Cranel cosplay. 
Well, as I just said, there was a mistake. As you can see in the picture, I am not very happy with this product. Maybe it's my own fault, but the hair on the sides (you can't really see it on the picture) is much too short and it makes my head look like an egg. And to make it worse, it's not white, is silver-grey.
I don't know if it was my fault or the fault of the company, so I can't say it was their mistake.

But still, I am not sure, if I would buy wigs there again. But if I do (even though it might be accidently), I'll tell you. ;)

Books and movies - please help me!

Last summer my boyfriend and I talked about creating a movie list, because there are some famous movies we should see. Well, we tried, but never watched any of these movies. The notes where on my phone, and then my phone broke. That's why I need your help!

You can comment here or on facebook which movies I should watch - especially fantasy and scifi ones. I also want to rewatch some classics, so just tell me your favourite movies or just movies, which anybody should see! I'll write down your ideas. But also write down some book titles, even if I have already read them (for example, Harry Potter), I will read them again
I'm already curious what your favourite movies and books are!

You can find my movie list here, and my book list here.

Well, uhm, sorry.

TBH, I actually forgot about this blog. So sorry!
I strongly believed that I had deleted it, but as I noticed 5 minutes ago, I hadn't. So let's restart all of this (as I already have again and again and again and again)!

I had a lot to do since school started, and stress only got worse. So I can't really say that I'll publish a new blog entry every week, sorry for that. But I'll really do my best to keep you entertained! I actually started a new hobby in summer, which is photography, and even though I am totally clueless about techniques, I think it's great fun and I like it. So I think I'll post some of my pictures, too. But first of all, have a make up/wig test of Medusa from Soul Eater :3
