Weekly Vibe #186

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #186! My first Lightsaber combat tournament is happening! But first I have to go through the qualifiers!


I am really feeling the pressure now! I even got myself some armour because seeing what happened last year I don't wish to play around with safety!



Oh yes and talking about armour! I just did a cosplay of Darth Revan last sunday! I wore the leather look leggings UK Tights sent me and under my robes paired with my boots and it was a really comfortable! Here is how I look!



Most of the problems I had were bad visibility from the mask which I have remedied after the event, I'm so glad I got friends with me to help me around! To be honest I really wonder how did Revan saw under thing man... the Force? I guess!




If you are stocking up some Silky ballet tights you can get them via UK Tights too because you get to save 15%! Use the code DANCE 15, it ends on the 20th of Sept!



That's all I have for you! In the next coming week I will be rolling out something new hopefully it would garner some good response well that's all I have for you!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #185 and Happy Anniversary!

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

It's our 4th anniversary today! Woohoo! No giveaway this year because I wasn't able to find any :( but I promise the 5th one would be great! Trust me! 

For weeks I have really realised that Instagram is one really very interesting place! I recently found an interesting tights start up named Wade & Belle that makes tights that eliminate the "muffin top" look and it's called "Not too Tights"! They have a special patented waistband for these really interesting tights!


I have managed to secure an interview with them and to be really honest of with you, I'm totally bought over this idea, though I don't really get much of the muffin top problem, because I don't wear a dress and I wear a pair of shorts of my tights so it covers my waistband, the problem I have is after I workout, my T-shirt gets soaked the muffin top would sometimes appear and that isn't a good thing! :X But we will get to hear from them soon when the interview is done! I'm hoping to give this pair of tights a try too!

Wolford has came up with a new innovation and named it the Wolford Comfort Cut 40 Tights!



The product description are as follows via UK Tights

"This has to be the most innovative product on the market today. It may look like a simple 40 denier tight at first glance. However, the waist size of these tights is decided by the wearer. By simply making up to four cuts on the inside of the waistband. The extraordinary soft yarn and the semi-sheer design has created a luxurious, minimalist look. Never before has there been a product that you could adjust to your own waist size. The best pair of tights you can buy as they will fit you perfectly and when you purchase these you'll get a free storage pouch whilst stocks last."

Wow waist size of these tights is decided by the wearer!? By making 4 cuts on the inside of the waistband! Wow! This is truly amazing! If you are interested in this getting them they are £34.99 a pair and comes with 5 colours: Black, Nearly Black, Admiral, Anthracite and Mocca. They also come in sizes S, M, L and XL, Wolford has always been very generous with sizing and we all have these conspiracy theory that they actually know men do buy their tights and seemed to have catered for taller and bigger sizes.. I mean come on, XL size height reaches to 190cm! I seriously haven't met any women of that height!

Well that's all I have for you this week!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #183

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #183! I have only just recovered from flu which I had from mid last week and last week was National Day for us in Singapore and we had a long weekend holiday! With the release of Pokemon Go, most of us(including me) went Pokemon hunting!! Hahaha!



On the previous I have also just ended my military reservice and we went out for a nice dinner and me of course in legwear.. *winks* and oh gosh my short hair... :(


Going back to civilian work was quite uneventful for me because I fell sick and there were so much work waiting for me... :(

I'm currently working on a Star Wars cosplay character which you will know from seeing this picture!



Last week also marked my first year being with my Lightsaber combat academy, The Force Academy! I have documented my journey in a video! Check it out! You would likely find me in every other duels in tights.. :P

Weekly Vibe #182

Hi friends!

It's has been a long time but.. welcome to Weekly Vibe #182! I'm sure you might have heard a little of what happened to me the past few weeks and adding into the mix that I had to pull a 6 day work week for 2 weeks and now I'm back in military outfit and will only be out of it by Friday this week and it has really bogged me down a fair bit blogging.. :X For the nice part I could hang out with my brothers whom I have served during the full-time service days and for another good part was that I passed my proficiency fitness test and got myself $200! :D

Regardless I still was doing the same, checking out hosiery and still wearing them as part of my outfit, recently I was recommended by a LAUF forum member to try seamless hosiery from China, named "Red Umbrella" for a moment I thought they were affiliated to the fictional Umbrella Corps from Resident Evil.. hahaha!

What I got were these seamless opaques that came in 3 denier series, 80 denier, 120 denier and 180 denier with footless, stirrup and footed configurations that came in 4 colours black, light, tan, and coffee brown. 


Here are some product pictures:





These were designed in mind for autumn and winter wear, they highlighted various issues on some conventional tights like visible reinforced panty, laddering, discomfort and snagging along with other issues that these marketed tights don't.




Other properties are the "apple hips" system which made these pair of tights some what waistband free, they keep you warm, the holes in the waistband give your waist ventilation, they are also elastic and stretchy as marketed.




One thing lacking information which made me consider ordering was sizing because nothing was mentioned on that part and the last time I ordered from another Chinese hosiery brand got me quite unimpressed in terms of quality but I decided to get these Red Umbrella seamless ones since they weren't that expensive US$7.30 a pair and it was getting 2 pairs for the price of 1 so I thought, why not? I got myself 2 pairs, 120 denier and 180 denier, I actually thought I got the 80 deniers one but I guess I didn't see clearly and locked in 180 denier instead.. but oh well! They took about a week or so to arrive. 




I only just got back home in the noon from my duty till 4am from my military duty and I was still severely lacking sleep, however getting these still got me pretty excited and I decided to try put on a pair first and since I was gonna wear a pair of tights for lightsaber class, might as well try these on first and perhaps wear them for class.. so I tried them on!




First impressions were that they were really soft and stretchy and they fit me well! And then I realised that the packaging did have sizing(Come on you should have put it up in your sales page!) It seemed like a 1 size fit all, hip sizing was 80cm - 120cm, Height was 140cm - 185cm and since I was somewhat in the middle size range, they fit well! And now for me was to wear them for a few more times and put it through my kind of trials before giving a review. 

Anyways if you are interested to check them out, they are on Taobao's Tmall page.


Well that's all I have for you this week!

Have a blessed week ahead!
Andreas
