An Unboxing

 So, it's a late post, but on the 29th of last month, I got to unbox my Guild Wars 2 Collectors Edition. <3 I'll post pictures of my new stuff, along with some other spoils from the journey! This is my game of the year, so I'm really excited to be able to play the full version and not worrying about having my character deleted through the beta. Also, if you guys haven't already, check out my Guild Wars blog Project Tyria. It compares locations from both Guild Wars games to each other as well as pre and post searing Ascalon. It's even garnered the attention of Arenanet themselves. I guess that's my way of saying that I think it's worth checking out. X3

Okay, so I went into Gamestop the other day to find a copy of Persona 3 Portable, since I hadn't been able to complete it yet. While walking through the store, I spot the Guild Wars 2 display. On it, there are the large display game boxes. I wasn't able to make it to the Guild Wars 2 midnight release at one of their other stores, where they said they'd be giving these out at. Because this store didn't have a midnight release party for it, they still had the display set up. The guy at the counter says he can save one for me when they change out displays by putting a sticker on the back. He comes back with the box, throws away the sticker, and says I can have it then and there. Such an exciting night! While I can't say I care too much for Gamestop, its employees like this that make me want to come back. So thank you again very awesome Gamestop employee guy!!!! <3

Bodyline Review 2

I absolutely adore Bodyline at this point. I know a lot of people say they have problems with them, but this is my fourth-fifth (I lost count) order and I've not had a problem with them. This time, I ordered a school girl uniform cosplay and a quartered-split wig.

The uniform (COSTUME410) is mostly for the skirt since I couldn't find one for my Tsumiki cosplay and I have waaaay too much to make right now to put it on my list. So, I ordered the uniform in blue. The entire time it was on it's way, I was afraid that it may not be the color blue I wanted, since I keep my monitor on gaming mode. It came in and was precisely the color I wanted (and though it would look like with the gamma turned down). Opposed to my winter uniform I purchased from them, the summer uniform is light and breezy. It's very well made and it came packaged in a plastic garment bag with a hanger. The lines on the collar and sleeves are made from a really soft and silky cord that intricately loops at the corners.The skirt is pleated perfectly and the bow that comes with the outfit is adjustable.  I'm certainly impressed.  

As for the wig, I wasn't sure how Bodyline's wigs were going to turn out. I've only seen them in pictures on the site, but I've always wanted a split wig of some sorts. Each of them looked natural and I liked the look of a bob since I have long hair (It'd be a nice change up!) So I place an order for a quarter-split wig (w048) in lb-y-db (Light brown/Dark brown). It's been a color combination I've been desiring for about a year now for a split wig, so I took a chance and ordered it. When it came in, it looked a little thin in the packaging. The package itself was nice- what you'd expect from a high quality wig. When I took it out and put it on, though, the fibers fell into place and the wig was super thick. The fiber looks really natural, so much so that people thought I had cut my hair! It's really soft, yet realistic feeling- like well groomed hair. I'm happy I took a chance and now I will be eyeing their other natural looking wigs for the future!

Overall, I rate my experience with them a 10/10. 
Yet again, I can't wait to shop with them again. They're really inexpensive and their quality has always been really great for me. <3
