Timeline (how long your order took to process): Paid for both wigs sometime around Feb./March and received around a week before my deadline in May (I'm horrible at remembering dates)

Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments: I'll combine the reviews then list the final grade for either wig at the bottom. So let's start with Edea! Edea's hair is tricky as she has some interesting spikes. I like the liberty taken with the wig as there are only 3 spikes so upkeep of them won't be too horrendous. And personally, I really like it. I don't mind that not every spike was there. I also got numerous comments on the saw fringe and about how clever and creative and how much work must have gone into it. It's comfy to wear although in heat not so much but I live in Southern GA so I can't help it. It also detangles very well.

Final Grade: A+

As for Ishimaru, I also got complimented as it went well with the eyebrow makeup I did that day. The wig itself is extremely shaggy feeling and I'm assuming it's because of the faux spikes in the wig since again, this is another tricky haired character as his hair can appear differently depending on the angle (sometimes it's straight up and other times it appears more leaning back). I'm assuming since the wig is shaggy, that explains why it sheds. After putting it on for a few minutes I noticed tiny strands of the wig all over my hands and costume which wasn't great because Ishimaru's uniform is completely white all over but luckily I brought a lint roller with me just on the off chance someone in my room may need it. It's fairly comfy to wear although it does sit oddly on my head and that may be because I've never worn a wig in this type of style before so...it's hard to say. Touching my face wasn't an option that day as I might smear my makeup but I felt like I was constantly scratching and adjusting it; the saw fringe was also present on this wig which I really liked. Overall, I'm pleased with it and will definitely wear it again for my mastermind version.

Final Grade: A-
