I have a different kind of subscription box review this time, the Betoyo Bento box features anime figures and toys and Japanese candy, and they kindly sent me August's box to review! I'll also be doing an unboxing video on Youtube soon, but here is my blog review~

I've been questing for a nice reddish pink hair for a number of months now, trying to get a similar colour to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu in her Candy Candy music video.
It's not the same shade, but I've definitely got a shade I love at the minute, and since it took a fair few attempts to get a dye that not only is red/pink, but covers my dark roots (as my hair is naturally dark brown)

You may remember I reviewed the Kawaii Box in my previous blog post and also in a Youtube video which you can check out if you want to see my opinions on the Kawaii Box. The company kindly allowed me to host a giveaway to give you the chance to win next month's kawaii box, so here it is!
Below is a Rafflecopter which will allow you to enter the giveaway. Simply put in your name and email so we can contact you if you win, then complete the tasks it asks you. You don't have to complete them all, but to be entered you will need a Facebook account, which is easy to set up if you don't have one and you can delete it once it's over if you want :) The giveaway will end on the 19th of July!
Subscription boxes have gotten popular lately, presumably following the success of boxes such as Lootcrate. Now there are a wide range of boxes including anything from makeup products to healthy snacks, kawaii goodies to Asian food. I have a review of the Kawaii Box, which is run by the company Blippo (not to be confused by other boxes of a similar name)

Thought I'd make a quick blog post on the two conventions I attended recently, Yorkshire Cosplay Con and Sunnycon. Although I made a small video for YCC, I didn't actually manage to film anything at Sunnycon because I was run down with a cold and just didn't feel like filming xD I have filmed a haul video of what I bought at both conventions though, and I'll upload that soon.
I didn't take as many photos of cosplayers at YCC as I would have liked, but here are the ones I did take
Met and hung out with some awesome people too, Sparkles* of Area 11
Overall I had an amazing time at YCC, it was great to cosplay and have people recognise my character as well ;o; Here's my video of the day:
Although I didn't take any photos at Sunnycon, I had a few taken of me! Here are a couple of the best, kindly borrowed from Astrogoate on tumblr:
It was my first time cosplaying Ryuko in public so I was pretty self concious about my midriff haha, but everyone was so nice and took photos of me so it made me feel awesome~ What was also awesome is that there were 3 Ryukos there, but we were all different variations of her so we didn't clash xD
I made some awesome friends at Sunnycon, so even though I went on my own I didn't feel lonely :3
Writing this has given me a case of the con blues now, I hope to be able to go to more conventions soon!

A while ago I bought these lenses from Honeycolor to use with my Mirai Kuriyama cosplay, and I just got around to trying them out now! I thought I'd do a review of them as well~EOS New Adult Brown and although they're called brown, they look yellow in person.
tried out my lenses for my Ryuko cosplay, I had a little photoshoot~
Overall thoughts of the lenses:Colour: 4/5 It's exactly as I wanted, but some may think they're not bright enough
Comfort: 4/5 When I first put them in my eyes were all watery but they're about as comfy as usual lenses
Enlargement: 3/5 Surprisingly good enlargement, even if I don't really need it!

I recently came across this really cute online store called Blippo, they sell a lot of different things from Japanese fashion magazines, to stationary, to DIY candy kits! I contacted them to see if I could do a review and they very kindly sent me these items for me to review, and I will be doing demo videos on Youtube very soon!
Lastly I was sent this cool Blippo keychain, which I believe everyone receives with their order. I like the design of this, it's pretty cute!
Overall I really liked the items I was sent, and I can't wait to try them out properly! Don't forget to check out Blippo's website because they have lots of cute things, and it's free shipping internationally!
