Fate Apocrypha Astolfo Wig Review by GCHANcosplay
Hello hello dearies °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
Its been quite a while since I updated, gomen.., adult life got me very occupied and lazy (ᅌᴗᅌ* )
Anyhow, I got blessed again for a chance to review another character wig from the forever awesome team of Rolsecosplay!
I was at the point of giving up having to review wigs since I’m new to this and not that good but, luckily Rolecosplay still trusted me to do another wig review and I’ll do my best to give you guys the best review with all honesty ୧( ॑ധ ॑)୨
Soooo, today’s wig review is for the Knight of Evaporated Sanity – Astolfo ଘ(੭ˊ꒳ˋ)੭✧
This character is just one of the many character I wish to cosplay from the game Fate Grand Order, but I prefer her seifuku version not the full armored one – too hassle and expensive for my lazy self to pull off haha ~ ~ only doing the simple ones, teehee （＾ｖ＾）
I started playing the game as well and I’m no making any progress at all （￣ー￣）
Let’s go ahead and check this wig ✌ ✌
Wig Material: Synthetic High Temp Fiber
Wig Color: Pink
Wig Length: 75cm/29.53 inch
Cap Size: Average (58cm-62cm)
Net Weight: 0.55kg
Parcel was shipped through China post which arrived around 2 weeks more or less from the time they sent updates of the wig being shipped. This time its a little different since I had to pay for the shipping fee for $6 and claim it from our local post office. I prefer China Post everytime I get parcels from international shops, very convenient indeed p(*＾-＾*)q
Wig was wrapped well with wig net inside a tight sealed Ziploc, pack includes wig ribbons and wig net. They might have overlooked the packing since I got 2 sets of ribbons and wig nets, lucky!
First look of the wig out from the pack, untrimmed and a bit styled for the character Astolfo.
As always I love the wig so much! L-email brand wigs are definitely one of my favorite （*’∀’人）♥
It looks exactly the same as the product photo from their website, with shades of white and pink to give the overall pink color. Combing is easy as well since fibers are so soft. Trimming and styling should be done manually though (oT-T)尸

Let’s take a closer look on the wig, shall we? ツ
For someone like me who was a small head, the fringe is too long and really needs to be trimmed.
One thing I didn’t really like about the wig is the top part where the parting is styled. Its not really that bad but it could have been better, especially since not everybody knows how to do wig styling. Styling this part is a must since this is one of the highlights of the character wig itself, trust your skills and goodluck! (ง’̀-‘́)ง
The braids are perfect though, there is no need to customize this part atleast. But! if you prefer tight braids you can, it all depends on how you prefer it looks like (^_-)—☆
I did some styling and trimming to the wig, It didn’t really turned out the way I want it but to set your expectations, I’m not good at both and still learning, Don’t JUDGE! (╯•﹏•╰)
I feel like I trimmed the side part too much which kinda made it look like its straight-cut but trust me it’s not. I didn’t do styling on those parts that’s why it looks weird ლ(´﹏`ლ)
This is the part where I mentioned I did a bit of styling, it took to forever to finish since its actually my first time but it t turned out well for a first timer, still experimenting on this part for much better results ✌(‘ω’)✌

Face looks really weird than usual. This was my first costrial after months of not doing Cosplay stuff , everything felt so new again OTL
OVERALL RATING: 4/5
I personally love the wig. Shipping was fast as usual and there were no delays as well. Wig quality is also one of my favorite, very soft and manageable – which most if not all Cosplayers would really prefer. Thickness is average, not too thick nor too thick. Price is also very reasonable – affordable and one of the cheapest for a character wig, $14.89 is not bad at all.
The only this I didn’t really like about the wig is the condition it was in after being unpacked – the top part (hair bump) was not really that entirely styled, most probably due to storing plus the shipping. If you really want the wig to look like its supposed to be, then there’s a lot of work to do from trimming to styling. I also don’t really like how the ribbons looked, they were small and not accurately made overall its not that bad, with all honesty ＼(^ω^＼)
I still highly recommend this wig for you future Astolfo cosplays ୧(﹒︠ᴗ﹒︡)୨
So thee you go dearies ~ ~ Thank you so much for going through this review, I hope some details helped a lot in your search for your Astolfo character wig nd I recommend this wig too. Good luck and have fun cosplaying. Keep the passion burning! ＼（＾○＾）人（＾○＾）／
