S-noilite Full Wigs 32″ : Good product, good arrival time

first_img It is perfect, as i expected it would be. For the price it is really good. The only issue i have with this item is the netting in the back is a little thin but it still is good. When wearing it i haven’t had any issue thus far. I will most definitely buying another. I found it difficult to brush as it. The product arrived promptly. I found it difficult to brush as it was so long it knotted easily but i was expecting that of a wig of such length. It was also hard to tie into a high pony tail but i was expecting this also. Wearing it down as it comes it would be perfect. Good product, good arrival time. Arrive in amazing time (day after i ordered) nice length and colour my only nit pick is it seems slightly to big for me (it’s not noticeable) and when i get around to styling it properly it will look tons better but other wise i’m pretty impressed and would buy from this seller again. Arrived when stated and good quality. I love the style and colours of these wigs. I bought this wig in both wine red and pink, and immediately upon recieving i was taken aback by how soft and natural they were. I love the style and colours of these wigs, and they are both fairly full although i did have a little trouble with the cap showing through at the back. Also, be aware that these wigs come up extremely small. I don’t have a large head and i’ve never had a problem with wigs being too small before but these ones only just fit. Overall i am happy with these wigs. It’s a great wig and after brushing it can look quite good, but because it’s only synthetic if won’t really look perfect. It came folded up in its packet, which i guess you can’t help but this caused bumping in the wig which still hasn’t come out after a few months- maybe you could wash it to get it out though. Brushed does pull some hairs out but it still seems like it’s packed with hair and still thick and shiny, doesn’t look as good as the picture though and covers more of the face than you think. Super speed delivery and looks like real hair. Arrived extra early very pleased with my purchase haven’t worn it yet but the quality looks very good and it looks like real hair. I will try to post a picture of it at a later date. Longer than i thought but i am more than happy about that. Lovely and soft longer than i thought but i am more than happy about that. Had tocut the fringe as it was quite long (im using this for a vulcan cosplay) but i knew i would be doing that anyway. Truthfully this is the best purchase i’ve ever made. I’ve been donning this wig for approximately a thirty day period now, and i you should not imagine it is even get rid of a hair. Arrived in about two days way too 🙂 would fee ten stars if i could i enjoy it.Extremely delighted with the merchandise. .Purchased it for my alice costume, required styling (no cutting just hairspray) and was great high quality for the price tag, surprisingly. The size wasn’t absurd, came just about shoulder size which was best.Was impressed by the adjustable places to assistance both fitting.Unquestionably incredible in my eyes. I ordered two days in the past and it came so speedy. So content to get it this early morning.Unfortunately the measurements usually are not exact, it truly is shorter then what i was told. In general although it’s completely fantastic, very good for my yui cosplay.I am a pink haired princess. Cannot think how excellent it is.center_img Good price, came earlier than expected and it doesn’t look horribly fake and works well with heathowever it sheds quite a bit and it doesn’t stay on your head very well, i personally found it too small, but a beanie works well to keep it on tight. Came really fast ordered it yesterday arrived today its such good quality and ooks so beautiful. ????????. Really good wig for my smurf fancy dress costume.

One Time in Bandcamp: Challenging MySpace Music

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Tags:#music#web 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Bill Tancer, Hitwise GM of Global Research recently wrote about MySpace’s departure as a top traffic generator for entertainment and music sites. Says Tancer, “MySpace was the most significant contributor of traffic to entertainment – multimedia sites providing over 35% of traffic to the category…that percentage now hovers below 10%.”And then on a related note, Wired’s Eliot Van Buskirk profiled SoundCloud as MySpace’s biggest music threat. While no one is arguing that MySpace has lost its grip as one of the leading music and entertainment destination traffic generators, I disagree with Van Buskirk’s choice in SoundCloud as the great equalizer. Due to the service’s ease-of-use and speed, SoundCloud is indeed one of the best file collaboration and music sharing sites. Quite simply, the site does everything right except help indie artists monetize. Meanwhile sites like Mix Match Music and Bandcamp provide solutions for bands to share AND monetize their products. In particular, Bandcamp’s execution is extremely elegant. As with MySpace, musicians upload their cover art, track listings, liner notes, lyrics and audio files. But Bandcamp adds four additional key features:1. File Conversions: The site converts a single uploaded file into eight different formats to meet device and music player requirements.2. Monetization: Bandcamp allows musicians to price their tracks and albums as they see fit. There is even the option to let fans decide prices on a sliding scale.3. Sharing Tools: The service provides embeddable player widgets for Facebook, MySpace and a variety of 3rd party blogs.4. Analytics: Perhaps most importantly, site analytics measure popular songs, track links and locate where files have been embedded. This means that musicians can search out their best advocates even if they’re miles (and sites) apart.While SoundCloud is definitely a fantastic tool for collaboration and remixing, it’s the storefront-style tools like Bandcamp that will either eat or be eaten by MySpace Music. We’ll just have to see where the major artists choose to flock in the coming months. CORRECTION: Earlier the writer described SoundCloud as a P2P site. SoundCloud is not structurally based on a peer-to-peer network of nodes. Instead the company considers itself a “Flickr for audio”.
