'Forest Witch' – Witch-inspired Gothic Lolita Outfit

Hello my dearest readers,

as you might noticed I forgot about blogging almost the whole year, but today I thought 'Why not bringing this blog back to life?' and that's what I'm trying to do. I'm not sure, if I'll manage to blog properly, but we will see.

Anyway, I'm starting this with my latest Lolita Fashion outfit. I haven't worn Lolita for a really long time. There was no meet-up for me this year. But I always wanted a Witch-inspired Gothic Lolita outfit, so before Halloween this year I bought a Witch-hat and decorated it. I also bought a broom, coordinated a fitting outfit and grabbed my fiance for a photo-shooting in the park. I wanted a witchy-autumnly atmosphere for the pictures and I'm very happy with our results.

Did you enjoyed Halloween this year? I had a relaxing evening with spooky movies and Halloween sweets. :)

Wishing you all a great start into this new week!

Review: Matlens Circle Lenses (Nine big eyes WAN-A48 & Extra Bella WAN-A8X)

Hello my dearest readers,

today I have another review for you. My convention season 2016 is about to start in a few weeks and I needed new circle lenses for my cosplays. I ordered them at Matlens.de, a online shop for all kinds of colorful lenses. (I made some good experiences with this shop before, so it was time for a review!)

First of all, I wanted a new pair of blue, green and red lenses. Since I'm nearsighted I need lenses with dioptres (-2,50 on my right eye & -2,00 on my left eye). Matlens has a bigger selection for lenses without dioptres, but I also found some. Prices are always for one lense, because you can order two lenses with different dioptres each.
I ordered Extra Bella WAN-A8X blue, Extra Bella WAN-A8X green and Nine big eyes WAN-A48 red.

Order date: 01.03.2016
Receivement: 02.03.2016
Shipping time: 1 working day
Shipping via: DHL
Payment: Paypal

User surface of the site and selection of lenses: 4,5/5
The site itself is constructed user friendly. The search options are very helpful and it's easy to find lenses for your need. The overall selection is great! They have lots of different lenses, like circle lenses or crazy lenses. But as I said before, the selection for people who need dioptres is smaller - so I subtract a 0,5 points. 
Contact: 5/5
I never had questions about the lenses, so I never talked to the shop operators. But the offer many kinds of contact possibilities. The confirmations are sent quickly and they also inform you in a very detailed way about the shipping.
Delivery/Shipping: 5/5
I can't say something about international shipping, but shipping in Germany is very fast (1-3 days)!

And now pictures and reviews about the different lenses:

The lenses arrived with three bottles of solution and three lense cases.

Here are the three pairs in their packages:
left Nine big eyes red; middle Extra Bella green and right Extra Bella blue.

Nine big eyes WAN-A48 (red)

Design: 3/5
Color: 4/5
Enlargement: 5/5
Comfort: 5/5
Naturalness: 2/5
There arent't lots of red circle lenses on Matlens when you need dioptres and the other pairs were more pinkish red, so I decided to get these. All in all I like them, but as you can see, they don't blend well with my natural eye color, because of the inner dark circle on the lenses and my light eyes. Of course they don't look natural, but the don't have to, because I need them for cosplay.

Extra Bella WAN-A8X green

Design: 5/5
Color: 4/5
Enlargement: 5/5
Comfort: 5/5
Naturalness: 3/5
I wanted green lenses without a dark frame on the outer circle and so I ordered these and all in all I really like them. The blend with my natural eye color, for my taste the color could be more vibrant, but I'm still happy with the way they look like.

Extra Bella WAN-A8X green

Design: 5/5
Color: 5/5
Enlargement: 5/5
Comfort: 5/5
Naturalness: 2/5
These are my favorites so far! The color is more vibrant than the green version and they still blend with my natural eye color. They look less natural than the green ones.

I hope my review was helpful and if you still have questions, don't hesitate in asking me!

Best wishes
Zhenya
