review: rainbowholic shopping service.

Published November 11, 2012 by princeshinkei

I wanted to do a review on a Japanese shopping service I recently purchased from here.
My friends decided to buy me this outfit from the Japanese store Putumayo for my birthday, so they all just forwarded me the money so I could go ahead and buy it online.  Sadly, this store doesn’t have an English site, and doesn’t ship internationally, so I had to find a shopping service.  I stumbled across rainbowholic and the owner of the page Kaila.  I emailed her my order and she replied back to me shortly after.  She made sure everything was correct before the order was placed and she is very friendly.
Kaila would tell me when she had received my money, when she placed the order, when it arrived at her doorsteps, and when she had shipped it out.  She also provided me a tracking number for my package and told me it would arrive in 4-7 days.   EMS shipping was used, and with my experience with EMS, I always got my package in 3 days, and to my delight, it was at my doorsteps in three days!

Packaged with rainbow deco tape~  😄

It says “otanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu”; Kaila was nice enough to write a small birthday note to me after I mentioned it to her!  >3<  Thank you!
The package was nicely wrapped in bubble wrap.

Wahh, she was even nicer to include a bunch of Japanese goodies as well!  I thought the bag was too  cute, and I really liked the almond chocolate sweets [behind the bag of chips].

This is her shop’s business card, I thought it was pretty.  XDD  Keeping the card definitely.

 

AND…..This is what I bought!  A shirt and earrings from Putumayo~  I loved them soo much!

My first clothing item for my future Putumayo collection!  ;D

This was the earring, couldn’t resist not getting them.  No pictures of the shirt yet, but I will have some soon!

All in all, I would definitely use rainbowholic’s shopping service again.  Really great experience, and you have NO IDEA how much I jumped today when I received my packages.  lol

ghetto cosplay.

So I’m trying to finish a Lyn costume from Blade and Soul for a contest, but they gave up such a short time frame.  ONE WEEK!  I didn’t have any intentions on cosplaying anything from the MMO until it was released in the USA, but the prizes are nice.  xD  I’m pretty much putting together an outfit made from cloth, tape, staples, and glue.  I gotta say, it works!  Might not be very permanent, but hey, I’m not wearing it anywhere.  lol

This is a WIP of it, I have some shorts drying from the glue I used.  I hope it stays together just long enough for me to take some pics.
I also have to style wigs and play with makeup.  lol  So much to do.  @>@  This was all made in one day…overnight, I was late to class this morning…OTL
