Hi beckii! I was just wondering what your opinion of circle lenses are? Have you tried them and do you believe they are safe? Seen as they are such a big part of cosplay these days I'd love to know what you think about them. I have personally never tried them, because I have astigmatism, so I was wondering if you have?
I’ve never used them! I ordered a pair when i was 14 but they got lost in the post. i never endeavoured again after that. i’ve never worn even normal contact lenses, either! i think they are safe for the most part, but due to cheap manufacture, and the fact that one tiny fuck up in production can cause major major eye damage, i’ve decided that for the foreseeable future i won’t use them. plenty of my friends use them and they’re totally fine and safe and have no problems whatsoever, but even the ones who are so safe, wear circle lenses and regular lenses, always have correct sanitisation and method, still can get serious eye damage.
a documentary which really made me check myself when it came to eyes was by Katie Piper, the victim of a horrible acid attack which left her blinded and disfigured. she actually recovered some vision due to stem cell research but the whole story following her eyesight really really made me value mine and not put risk to it.
idk i guess from my stance i’d like to be just a small beacon for people who don’t feel comfortable or ready yet to wear lenses :) they’re not necessary. they’re fun, they’re a cool addition to cosplay and makeup, but you don’t need them.

Hey, I'm planning on cosplaying for octobers MCM expo in London but I'm having trouble finding a wig, do you have any advice of where to go to get some good ones? (Preferably quite cheap ones) Thank you so much <3
taobao is a treasure trove it’s super useful to learn how to order from it. if you want to get a few wigs and some other bits and bobs then you should order from there! i made a guide.
they’re so cheap and honestly they will be as good quality as you will buy from elsewhere except without the £30 markup. if you want to get a really good quality wig though, then you should look at boutique shops like lockshop, prisila, etc.
