Dolly Diptych Week 21 + Leeke World Art Wig Review

Blair's birthday gift (c/o Ryan, teehee ^u^) arrived a day after her actual birthday. Sweet! I was expecting it to arrive by the end of September. Imagine my surprise when it was delivered to my office yesterday afternoon. I wanted to check it out but I was afraid of inspecting it in the office. xD

Touch of Pink

As soon as I got home, I tried it on Blair. I was worried that it was too pink, but it's not bad actually. It really suits her new face up! I wanted it to be a little creamier and more brownish, but eh, you can't really expect handmade things (especially art wigs) to look exactly like their promo photos. There are some brownish/cream parts, but it's not really close to how it was presented on their site.

Here's a comparison shot of the wig I have and one of the promo photos on the art wig's product page on Leeke World:

That's quite a difference, but it's still a gorgeous wig.

Am I disappointed? Just a little. Leeke World's quality has been going down recently, but I've gotten luckier with their simpler wigs. I guess it would be best to just purchase those instead of the heavier styled ones. ;)

Final rating on the Art Wig W127:

Color: 4/5
Despite the difference between the wig that I got and the promo photos, the wig's color is still a lovely blend of pink and blonde, with some parts dyed brown and dark pink.

Softness: 4/5
The wig is very soft and easy to maintain, as long as you take good care of it.

Durability: 4.5/5
The wefts are sewn well and it doesn't seem like it's prone to hairfall.

Promo photo accuracy: 2.5/5
The style is accurate but the color difference is very obvious. Too pink!

Overall rating: 3.75/5

    ugh agreed with Leekeworld's wigs. I think am going to avoid buying the complicated hairstyles unless am okay with the risk.

    Coloring aside it looks very lovely the texture of it looks quite realistic like she leaned and sat on it, I think it looks very nice on her.

  7. I haven't seen many bjd blogs do it, so I thought I might as well since this hobby involves so much risk. @n@
