Do you want to have the real cosplay wigs, is yourwigs looks good as the drag queen. The wig is one of the most important accessories. Ensure that yourwigs look good so you can always look your best. Wigs on the internet are not so expensive but if you are the first time shopping on the internet, you should choose the right on line store. Here is one of the most famous on line store milanoo.com. The wigs are in low wholesale price and high quality. Plus free shipping, we could really save lots of money.


Tips for wigs choosing:

1) if you are looking for long hair (which is what I currently have) — definitely spend the money on real human hair. I tried several long synthetic wigs (even the “new generation” and “heat resistant” synthetics) and they looked great — for about a month. After that the ends get “knappy” (for lack of a better word) and it gets very, very tangled all the time. The human hair is just like, well, hair. But it is expensive.


2) You don’t have to spend a lot to look great! The wig that I had on in my picture cost $39.99 and I swear I had so many compliments on it — even women wanting to take my picture so that they could show their sylist what they wanted (it was then that I was very tempted to just take my wig off and ask the lady if she wanted to try it on! But, I didn’t want to embarrass my husband.)


3) Benefits of synthetic hair — wash with any mild shampoo, shake out and let air dry. No styling required. Very easy maintenance. In milanoo.com, the fashion wigs and the cosplay wigs are all in good quality and made of synthetic. Benefits of human hair — looks and feels great! Shampoo and style just as you did your own hair.


4) drawbacks of synthetic hair — Not as durable. Can melt or singe with a sudden blast of heat — say, from leaning too close when opening the oven. Or if your mother should accidentally wash your hair on extra hot, sanitary setting in the washing machine. drawbacks of human hair — you have to fix it. If it rains, you have a bad hair day.


5) drawbacks of all wigs — wind, roller coasters, and water sports create challenges. But, there is double-stick tape for that. : )


6) And finally, the benefits of any and all wigs — you can always have perfect color and highlights!! I am currently a red-head and it looks amazing with my skin!


The very best benefit — once you get past feeling self-conscious — is that you look and feel beautiful again with that milanoo.com wigs.


<![CDATA[Horrible Prom Fashion: Worst Dresses EVER.]]>Thu, 21 Jan 2010 08:49:16 GMThttp://milada.weebly.com/cosplay/horrible-prom-fashion-worst-dresses-ever Finding the right prom dress can be rough. A lot of the best designs come with hefty price tags, and it's almost impossible to find an economical dress that doesn't look like everyone else's. There are some dresses, however, that are simply inexcusable in any context.
8. Pretty in Pink Bag Lady
As a very young child I found the ending to John Hughes' 80's masterpiece Pretty in Pink confusing. I knew that it was supposed to end happily: Molly Ringwald's character ended up making out with the rich dude in the rain, and she somehow "showed" the aptly-named douche Steph how she was way classier than he...in a pepto-bismol colored bag. The ugliness blew my mind every time I rewound the VHS tape.7.  Fuschia Tulle Vomit
Some person took a Barbie Ballgown and copied the pattern stitch for stich. And I hate that person.6.  Kelli Pickler as Princess Jasmine Prom Dress
She gets an automatic fail on two counts:
  • bare midriff (extra points for ultra-classy belly button ring)
  • the cutout business around her hip bones (what function could that possibly serve?)
5. Grandmaster Flash Prom Dress
Do you think maybe she put it on backwards?

4. Hello Kitty Prom Puke and Sock Monkey Hell
DOUBLE FAIL: No cartoon characters allowed at prom. I'm looking at you, Dora the Explorer. Also, acustom-made sock monkey dress will set you back $1,500. A great buy if you hate yourself.
3. Prom Pregnancy Shift
This photo is overused and ancient, but it's like the Holy Grail of horrific prom dresses. This woman is a fashion pioneer. She totally anticipated the Hollywood Baby Craze before Shiloh was a twinkle in Brad Pitt's eye
.2.  Misplaced Patriotism Prom Dress
While shopping for a prom dress, remember there's a reason why Miss Universe contestants don't wear their country's flags as gowns.

1. Confederate Flag "Idiot Heritage" Gowns
Shamefully, there are quite a few photographs of confederate flag prom dresses on the web. This one comes courtesy of a southern belle named Jacqueline Duty out of Russell, Kentucky, who had "planned and saved" for this monstrosity since her freshman year of high school. She chose this pattern because it "showed what [she] stood for." She never made it through the doors to her prom, as school officials found the dress offensive and disruptive. Jacqueline filed a lawsuit, and won an out-of-court settlement. Disgusting AND ugly.

The people who have saw the movie 2012 may also have a little thought about the ending of the world. Some one said that do not worried about the end of the world, just enjoy carpe diem. The spring of 2010 is still beautiful.


So my suggestion to those lovers is find your Mr. or Ms right and married to them. Get your favorite wedding dress in Milanoo.com and married him or her right now. If you have enough time and money, fly to the place where you want to. Review the cradle land of world, like China, Egypt and Mesopotamia plain.  


Actually the none of us know the right time for the end of the world. But it has been over two year’s since the “two suns” event. Every time we heard that it is once in millennium. Some one even set the 2012 warning page on the internet. Two years ago, Patrick Geryl, then 51, quit his job as a laboratory worker for a French oil company. He'd saved up just enough money to last him until December 2012. After that, he thought, he wouldn't need it anyway.


Instead, Geryl, a soft-spoken man who had studied chemistry in his younger years, started preparing for the apocalypse. He founded a "survival group" for likeminded men and women, aimed at living through the catastrophe he knew was coming. He started gathering materials necessary to survive — water purifiers, wheelbarrows (with spare tires), dust masks and vegetable seeds. His list of survival goods runs 11 pages long. "You have to understand, there will be nothing, nothing left," Geryl told ABC News from his home in Antwerp, Belgium. "We will have to start an entire civilization from scratch."


What will really happen? Is the "end of the world 2012" Is the prophecy really true? We don't know for sure because the facts are a little ambiguous, we'll just have to wait and see.we are common people and we do not have one billion euro for a seat. So I want get married before 2012 and enjoy my life just in case.

<![CDATA[EXCLUSIVE: \'SPIDER-MAN 4\' SCRAPPED; SAM RAIMI & TOBEY MAGUIRE & CAST OUT; FRANCHISE REBOOT FOR 2012]]>Tue, 12 Jan 2010 09:37:52 GMThttp://milada.weebly.com/cosplay/exclusive-spider-man-4-scrapped-sam-raimi-tobey-maguire-cast-out-franchise-reboot-for-2012
BREAKING NEWS! 3RD UPDATE: Tobey Maguire just released this statement to me: “I am so proud of what we accomplished with the Spider-Man franchise over the last decade. Beyond the films themselves I have formed some deep and lasting friendships. I am excited to see the next chapter unfold in this incredible story.”

2ND UPDATE: Mike Fleming and Nikki Finke have just confirmed that Sony Pictures decided today to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after franchise director Sam Raimi pulled out of Spider-Man 4 because he felt he couldn't make its summer release date and keep the film's creative integrity. This means that Raimi and the cast including star Tobey Maguire are out. There will be no Spider-Man 4. Instead, Mike Fleming is told, the studio will focus on a Summer 2012 reboot from a script by Jamie Vanderbilt with a new director and a new cast. All this took place today at meeting on the lot today. An official Sony Pictures news release about it is expected out now (see below).

Immediately, the news brought celebration and consternation equally to webslinger fanboys who say the reboot plot puts Peter Parker back in high school. There's also much unconfirmed speculation that this new franchise will be in 3D. And the fans also recall that, in 1991, James Cameron wrote a treatment for Spider-Man and now they're wondering if he might helm the reboot. (Sony ended up acquiring his treatment in a legal settlement.)

Here's what went down: My sources tell me that Raimi told Sony Pictures: "I can't make your date. I can't go forward creatively." And, so, once he said "That's it", Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal and Columbia Pictures' Matt Tolmach decided they didn't want to replace him and instead chose to reboot the franchise. Insiders also tell me that Tobey Maguire heard the news in a phone call with Amy today. I'm told Tobey wasn't upset. "He's made 3 great Spider-Man movies. He's done really well. But he's the kind of guy who, if Sam wanted to go forward, would have been there for Sam and the studio. Absolutely."

Mike Fleming has heard that, from Spidey, Raimi could move to World Of Warcraft, or to The Given Day, that terrific novel by Dennis Lehane, author of Shutter Island and Mystic River. Both are worthy projects, but World Of Warcraft is a huge franchise.

Fortunately for the studio, Sony was not yet "pay or play" on some of the talent negotiations which were still only at the tail end. Raimi was insisting that John Malkovich play the villain, and the studio was looking to cast Anne Hathaway. "I'm not so sure we're going in that direction," an insider told me on January 5th. Sony had been hot for her until bigwigs realized she'd cost too much and they probably don't need "such a big star" for the pic, I was told. (See my previous, Anne Hathaway Wanted For 'Spider-Man 4'.)

As for those repeated rumors that Spider-Man 4 might shoot in 3D, I've learned it would have added at least 6 months to the production schedule and "no one on the pic has any idea how to do that," a source confided. You've got to figure 3D now is uppermost on Sony minds given the post-Avatar climate, and Summer 2012 is more than enough time to make the reboot with new technology. Back in April, Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton told Forbes magazine: "People are paying a premium to see movies in 3-D and that's a very big deal. It's never been done before that someone says you have to pay more to see Spider-Man than a romantic comedy."

The events that led to today's shocking decision to scrap Spider-Man 4 can be traced to mid-December when I saw a December 11th email alerting the pic's special effects crew that the fourquel would not be starting as planned "but Sam Raimi has story issues [that] need to be resolved before we are ready to shoot". At that point, it wasn't well known that the Spider-Man franchise director helming the 4th installment had huge problems with the script that has run through screenwriters Jamie Vanderbilt, David Lindsay-Abaire, and Gary Ross. I was told Sam Raimi had been very vocal inside Sony that he "hated" it. I broke this story on January 5th, and reported that Raimi and Sony were anxiously waiting for still another version from screenwriter Alvin Sargent, who wrote Spidey 2 & 3 and is married to Spidey franchise producer Laura Ziskin. "It is unlikely that May 11, 2011, date will be made," a Sony insider told me that day. "It depends on how quickly the script can get in." However, agents told clients in the movie to already expect the film to be pushed back.

<![CDATA[Who Was Buried in the Year 2009, Tiger Woods or Lady Gaga?]]>Tue, 05 Jan 2010 05:18:54 GMThttp://milada.weebly.com/cosplay/who-was-buried-in-the-year-2009-tiger-woods-or-lady-gaga
 Summary: the year 2009 will go over soon. In 2009, we grow up and learn something, so does the amusement circle. In the amusement circle some one won the harvest and someone loss lots of thing.

  1 Harvest year.

To lady gaga and Taylor swift, it is a harvest year. They are nominated several times in the 2009 Grammy rewords. Although they are all new faces in the music circle, they are popular around the world.


Depends on the talent of music and the wired fashion way, lady gaga has become the new trend in the fashion monde. Her song is satisfaction to most people, her hair style freak lots of people (it is wigs), her bodysuits wearing scared the world. Some one even predicts that lady gaga’s weird fashion way will leading the world fashion development. She seldom wears pants, because she said that her grandma could not see it. So the under wear and the sexy bodysuits with a jacket is her style. Some one said that she is wearing the lingerie walk on the street , but her bodysuits and lingerie is really cheap, not as good as the one from milanoo.com (www.milanoo.com )


Taylor swift is another new face in the Grammy nomination, she is totally different from lady gaga and her style is country music.  She is popular for her new singleTim McGraw,her song style was loved by people and lots of people said that she is sure the pop star in the future.


Days before there are some one on the internet compare her with lady gaga and Beyonce in the same milanoo.com (www.milanoo.com ) cheap wedding dress, we are not sure who will be the winner. But now beyonce is queen in the music. Those two new faces should try hard if they want to catch up with the “big sis”


2 Sad year


Months before, tiger woods fell on the earth from the heaven because of a car crash. The media finds out his mistresses. Now we know there are 9, but a friend of him said that it is only the tips of the iceberg. Now his wife move out from home with his two children and his mother was totally hurt by him but always support him. His ads were disappeared. It would be a big loss in fame and the finance. Maybe years later tiger would recover his fame or he would disappear from the sports world. After all he is a talent golf player. we hope he could be back. Now he is definitely the one was buried in the year 2009.


No matter it is sad year or harvest year, they are all successful.

<![CDATA[Who Lead the World Fashion, Lady Gaga? ]]>Wed, 30 Dec 2009 10:04:37 GMThttp://milada.weebly.com/cosplay/who-lead-the-world-fashion-lady-gagaSummary: Is the mix up of the different wearing of lady gaga predict the fashion of the fashion trend of the future, will you be the one to follow? Lady Gaga’s zentai suits’ wearing is surely leads the zentai fashion. In the future, the zentai fashion will be the mainly trends in the fashion world.

These days, there is weird lady name herself lady gaga has been known by all over the world. She is not as beautiful as Jennifer Aniston, she is not as charming as Angelina Jolie, and also her song was not as popular as Beyonce, but she is famous now. her show up lead to burst of screaming and discussion. Many stars also specifically to imitate her dress. She is dinger first, but what we know more about her is her "Minnie Mouse head". The bow hair, white bodysuits, sexy lingerie with a jacket, the sexy catsuits with a Gothic black jacket and the sexy underwear really frighten the world. When those weird clothing goes with the Flip-Up Shades sunglasses, she is the weird lady in the mixing of different styles.

Her weird wearing style may mislead the world fashion, but it benefits lots of the manufacturers of the bodysuits and sexy lingerie, especially the china wholesale companies. In the next two or three month, lady gaga will be the one that the entire world followed. And the manufacture is surely being the sunrise industry. Especially the one like mialnoo.com, whose products are in varied styles and low price, will earn the most of the market share.


Lady Gaga's slogan is: "I am not fashion brand, stacking materials, I create fashion!" As if she is the fashion brand. Lady Gaga is the best representative is the "Minnie Mouse head" which is now popular all over the world, has been a public social model and lots of actress rushing to imitate. And some of the netizens even said that it is the copy from Ms Bai in Chinese play The Legend of White Snake. The only difference is that lady gaga’s Minnie head is white.


Her extremely thick mascara, "electrician" style sunglasses, gelatinous bodysuits, underwear in a jacket, leather corset, tight-fitting briefs and three-dimensional structural coat is surely exist before and lady gaga is the one who dare to mix them up and show to the public. Now image who dare to wear the underwear in a coffee house and walking on the street, only lady gaga could, but in the future, all we can.
<![CDATA[Lady Gaga’s Scandal Pants Story Will Reveiller Le Monde]]>Tue, 29 Dec 2009 09:56:06 GMThttp://milada.weebly.com/cosplay/lady-gagas-scandal-pants-story-will-reveiller-le-monde
We notice that lady gaga never wear pants. No matter on the street or the vocal concert. do you want to dressed like lady gaga, surely no body want to at present.  Do you know why she does not wear pants? The reason is that she is for in love with those zentai and sexy lingerie (those lingerie and sexy body suits are get in a low price and fine quality, they are from milanoo.com [www.milanoo.com]).

1 lady gaga does not wear pants

Lady gaga is a little wired in normal aspects, both her fashion style and her pastiche songs echoing styles. Earlier this month Lady Gaga said that she would love to do her own clothing line! Then she has the good reason to wear the sexy lingerie and bodysuits.

Lady Gaga wants to create her own clothing range. The singer, 23, who topped the single charts with Just Dance last month, hopes to launch the collection as soon as possible.I can’t wait to do my own line,’ she says. ‘It’s definitely something I want to do in the next year as I do have my own style.' she plans to aim it at teenagers.


2 why lady gaga do not wear pants

As you may have noticed Lady Gaga seems to not own a single pair of pants. Lady Gaga recently explained to "Rolling Stone" the reason why, "My grandmother is basically blind, but she can make out the lighter parts, like my skin and hair. She says, ‘I can see you, because you have no pants on.' So I'll continue to wear no pants so that my grandma can see me." And there you have it.  That is why Lady Gaga doesn't wear pants!


3 then what should lady gaga wear.

POP star LADY GAGA shields her face but seems to have forgotten what's on show below. The Poker Face singer appeared a little over-exposed in a saucy see-through lacy dress. a reporter said that lady gaga was caught in a London restaurant and she was really do not like take photo and always want to hide behind something. But as she walked away to a waiting car, the view from behind was just as cheeky


Has the world become so bored with fashion that they abandoned their clothing completely? We have all seen Lady Gaga wear some crazy things before (remember the bow made of hair?), but nothing prepared us for this underwear ensemble. We aren’t prude in the fashion industry. We see models walk the runway bra-less in sheer tops and celebs strut down the red carpet in ultra-sheer dresses right after they expose themselves getting out of their limos. This is only a way in display what is fashion is, we do not see anyone who wear those clothes walking on the street. However, there is no fashionable reason that justifies sparkly granny panties and a patent leather bra. In this picture, Lady Gaga appears to be on the street and not on a stage, so it is safe to assume this outfit is not a costume


The fashion field is sure that in the future or some day, lady gaga will be the leading of the fashion field. I think the closest the fashion industry has gotten to making underwear trendy was the popular use of lingerie-inspired tops and dresses, and, of course, the iconic Dolce and bustier. If you are going to wear an undergarment out in public, at least make sure it’s a designer brand. We hate to bash Lady Gaga, because it is good to push the style limits once in a while; we just fear if she ditched her clothing, what will come off next in the name of fashion? Next time, we think Lady Gaga should cover up with a sexy blazer and maybe some pants.
<![CDATA[Merry Xmas in Hollywood: Box-office record falls (AP)]]>Mon, 28 Dec 2009 09:56:57 GMThttp://milada.weebly.com/cosplay/merry-xmas-in-hollywood-box-office-record-falls-ap
NEW YORK - It was a memorable and merry Christmas in Hollywood as moviegoers shattered box-office records, responding in droves to a diverse array of high-profile releases over the holiday weekend.

The estimated $278 million in weekend box-office revenue broke the previous record of roughly $253 million set in July 2008, the weekend "The Dark Knight" was released.

A diverse group of films drew throngs to the multiplexes: James Cameron's "Avatar" pushed strongly into its second week while "Sherlock Holmes," "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" and "It's Complicated" all opened.

"Avatar," the 3-D epic, topped them all, earning $75 million for 20th Century Fox, according to studio estimates Sunday. Remarkably, that was only a 3 percent drop from its opening weekend total of $77.4 million. (Blockbusters typically drop 30-50 percent in the second weekend.) In its 10 days of release, "Avatar" has made $212 million domestically — and could be on its way to a worldwide gross of over $1 billion.

"This thing is going to be playing and playing, I can tell you that," said Bert Livingston, 20th Century Fox distribution executive. "There's a lot of business out there. Everybody's got good movies out."

In second was "Sherlock Holmes," Guy Ritchie's reboot of the franchise with Robert Downey Jr. starring as Arthur Conan Doyle's detective. The Warner Bros. film opened with a weekend total of $65.4 million, including a record Christmas Day debut of $24.9 million.

It was a start that seemed sure to pave the way for sequels. Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros., called the result "sensational."

"Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," which opened Wednesday, took in $50.2 million on the weekend and $77.1 million in its five days of release. The film, also from Fox, earned an impressive $18.8 million on Wednesday alone. The strong start suggested that "Squeakquel" was likely to surpass its 2007 original, which made $217 million.

Also opening was Nancy Meyer's "It's Complicated," the romantic comedy starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. With an audience 72 percent female, the Universal film took in $22.1 million, a solid debut.

The sparkling Christmas weekend results spelled good things for all the films in release in the coming week — one of the most lucrative of the year.

"We all know what next week means to the industry. This is ... huge," said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. "Christmas is past us. No more shopping, no more returning. College kids are home. ... I'm so optimistic about what the next weekend holds for us."

Said Livingston: "Starting this Monday, every day is a Saturday."

Two films with Oscar aspirations also released wide over the weekend: Jason Reitman's "Up in the Air" (Paramount) and Rob Marshall's "Nine" (Weinstein Co.).

"Up in the Air," which has some of the best awards momentum, grossed $11.8 million, bringing its cumulative total to $24.5 million — already nearly earning back its production budget.

"For us, this movie was always the movie that we felt was going to be a real focus during the awards season," said Rob Moore, Paramount vice chairman. "It feels like this should have a long run as awards season continues."

"Nine," the adaptation of the Broadway musical (which itself was a riff of Federico Fellini's classic film "8 1/2") earned $5.5 million in 1408 theaters.

"It's an absolutely fitting end to the biggest box office year of all time," said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. "It's just been a total roller coaster ride. It's like audience members are on board."

2009 still has several days to go, but the year is already a record for domestic ticket sales with more than $10 billion at the box office. That surpassed the $9.7 billion mark of 2007.

While some of the credit has to go the recession (movies historically do well in hard times when a trip to the movie theater is a relatively cheap form of entertainment and escapism), there was a feeling Sunday that Hollywood had put forth a better product this Christmas.

"People say it's the recession," said Dergarabedian. "It's the movies — it's really the movies. It seems like when people aren't at home, they're at the movies."

He added: "You're going to find a smile on the face of every studio chief out there today."

Hollywood also seemed to be offering good ol' spectacle to moviegoers. "Avatar" grossed $8.8 million in IMAX theaters, actually increasing from its opening weekend. IMAX chairman and president Greg Foster said they were operating essentially at capacity.

"There is no context," said Foster. "It's so far beyond where we've ever been. It's not eking past a record, it's shattering it."

Christmas weekend was also neatly organized around various demographics. There was science-fiction, romantic comedy, family fare, action-packed thriller and serious awards-contender.

"That's what fueled this Christmas, the diversity of the films," said Dergarabedian. "It was like a cinematic buffet line. If you can't find a movie that you like in the marketplace right now, you don't like movies."

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Final figures will be released Monday.

1. "Avatar," $75 million.

2. "Sherlock Holmes," $65.4 million.

3. "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," $50.2 million.

4. "It's Complicated," $22.1 million.

5. "Up in the Air," $11.8 million.

6. "The Blind Side," $11.7 million.

7. "The Princess and the Frog," $8.7 million.

8. "Nine," $5.5 million.

9. "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" $5 million.

10. "Invictus," $4.4 million.
