Item purchased: 1 Ciel Phantomhive wig

Links to picture(s) of your received item: these are all my cosplay photos lol...but it more or less gives you a general gist of the wig.

(it's really blue because of the lighting)

Timeline : because it's from China, it was assumed that the wig wouldn't arrive ASAP. It came in about a month or so, which I suppose isn't that bad. I wasn't in a hurry to receive the wig anyways, so it generally came on time.

Pros: - the packaging was good; it was secured in a box, which I prefer over the manila envelopes
- it was the right style/length as the picture
- she gave me a refund after, about half the price I paid (since I kept the wig so it wasn't a complete refund)

Cons: When the package came I was really excited, but upon opening the box it was obvious that it was the wrong color.
The color in the picture was supposed to be GRAY.
But as you can see in the photos above, it is BLUE BLUE BLUE.
I know that all the Chinese ebay sellers pretty much sell the same product, and for Ciel there were two general types of wigs that were being sold: a grayish-blue wig with blue strands, or a blue wig with black strands.
I didn't want either, so I was set on finding a dark gray wig, no strands or anything.
This wig was the blue with black strands, which I didn't like the most over the two choices.

Comments: Overall, I was extremely disappointed. This was my first wig and I had high hopes, but I really should've researched more.
I still used the wig, but I personally hated my Ciel cosplay, and I probably won't be cosplaying him anytime soon in the near future.

Final Grade: D
Wig was still useable, but looked nothing like the picture shown.
