This sponsored post was made possible by our friends at Klenspop! I was quite happy when they offered to send us circle lenses to review because I love to wear them in daily life even though I don’t get to do it as often as I’d like. My favorite type of lenses to wear out of cosplay are brown ones so the Bunny Color Brown were perfect. Klenspop mostly offers natural colors (brown, black and grey) with discreet designs, but they do have some other colors as well. If you like to create a dolly look, you’ll definitely be able to find a great pair on their store. Also, their lenses are not very expensive! A lot of them are under $20.
You’d think it would be simple to find a cruelty-free mascara. Personally, I’m not difficult as far as mascara goes. For the longest time, I just bought whichever brand was on sale at the pharmacy when I needed a new one. I tried high end brands for a little while but saw little difference in how my lashes looked – and a big one in how much it cost me. I never really had a bad mascara experience.
When I decided to switch over to cruelty-free brands, I figured it would be easy as pie and I could just grab whatever mascara I first came upon and be done. Little did I know of THE HORRORS OF CRUELTY-FREE MASCARAS that awaited me. *Cue womanly scream of terror* Little did I know…

These lenses come in 2 versions: monthly wear and weekly wear. The version that I tried is the weekly which is sold in a box containing 6 lenses (3 pairs) and costs $30. The monthly option costs $25 per single lens so getting a full pair would have a hefty $50 price tag. Since I was going to use these for cosplay and would wear them only once or twice during the same weekend I didn’t think it was necessary to pay more for the monthly lenses.

By and far, Sailor Scouts are some of the most cosplayed characters at conventions. Being an old favorite, it means there are tons of tutorials and accessories available online which makes it easy for anyone to make their own costume. When making my own Eternal Sailor outfit with my group, we used a lot of things available online such as patterns and accessories, so I wanted to share these resources with you!

Except for the lucky ones who live in a big city with a fashion district, we’ve all been in this situation where we just cannot find the right fabric for our next project locally. I’ve had to resort to shopping online for fabric more times than I care to count and the experience hasn’t always been free of frustration. Very often I need to see a swatch before committing to buy full yards of fabric and I like not to be robbed blind because of outrageous shipping fees. $39 to ship 2 yards of spandex to Canada? No thanks, Spandex World. So here is my list of good and bad online fabric stores with any useful info I could provide.
