Dead or Alive:: Ayane | Photoshoot

With 2015 finally coming to an end and were waiting for the big bang of 2016. I'm trying to catch up on all my post - which I might as well give up on TBH LOL
I don't even know if I'll be able to do a 2015 review. Though I WILL TRY ahaha. I'm definitely looking forward to 2016. Namely to a full booking for Katsucon. With this prospect looking good, I might try and head to Anime Weekend Atlanta next!
But before we digress any further, a throw back to the set from summer!

Lens shops that still takes Paypal!

With the sudden rise of many major circle lens store switching from NONE-paypal payment to direct credit card payment. Many people are weary about purchasing from these stores for fear of fraud charges on their accounts. And for many of us in the US our cards are held or suspended transactions until the bank hears from us saying - please process.

Heres a list of circle lens stores that still takes PayPal and I have bought from them before and haven't had any hiccups with their transactions.
Kawaii Love Beauty: One of the few sellers that's actually based in the US. Most of their plano lenses ship from their US warehouse but prescription lenses tends to take a while to process since they have are being shipped from another region and not in the US.
Limited selection of lenses but great for those who prefer gyaru style lenses. If your looking for cosplay lenses and are in a pinch, I suggest the geo tri-color series (or any of the tri color series which they do carry)
Kiwiberry1: I use to shop here a lot for all my lenses since their usually pretty good about promos (they do them quite often but it just basically negates the shipping charges for the most part)
processing time is average like most sellers. Same with shipping.
Has a good selection of lenses and carries a lot of the older lens series (staple geo series)

Love Shipping Holic: does a lot of promos and code promos if you google up bloggers.
I haven't ordered directly from them myself but have only done so through group orders.
So far so good. Has a wide selection of lenses, MAKEUP, lashes and etc!
Does promo for express shipping, they do ship from Malaysia I believe.
Uniqso: Another website that does alot of sponsorship with alot of bloggers, so if you just google real quick its pretty easy to find 10-15% off coupon codes from bloggers.
Another one that has a WIDE range of cosplay lenses, especially cosplay centric ones like Tokyo Ghoul and etc.
Also has wigs, wide range of makeup and lashes selection. Basically your one stop shop if your a cosplayer. I hear they ship faster to the EU region than they do the states. I ordered from them once and it took ave 1-2 weeks??? Shipping was DHL.
