– but still awaiting negotiations on way forwardThe smaller partner in the coalition Government, the Alliance For Change (AFC), has started planning for the Local Government Elections (LGE), slated to take place in December this year.Following a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the AFC on Saturday, the party said having already commenced its campaign, it has now started with the identification of candidates.The meeting was held at the Wamlan Pai Kulanau Pona at the Sophia Exhibition Centre, Greater Georgetown.During robust discussions at the NEC, it was revealed that negotiations with coalition partner A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) with regard to contesting the LGE on a joint platform will continue.Further to that, the meeting mapped out a pre-campaign plan of action and the broad outlines of strategic plans for the campaigns in each of the nine administrative regions in which LGE will be contested.The processes for identifying candidates, concerns of citizens, campaign structure, methodologies, organisation and funding and other matters were also discussed and decisions taken.The NEC will reconvene on July 28, to further advance the LGE campaign.Having felt it was disadvantaged in the 2016 Local Government polls with regards to the allocation of candidates, the AFC had been mulling whether it should contest the LGEs alone this time round. However, the party subsequently initiated discussions with its coalition partner to discuss the way forward.The AFC had said the party has proposed nine major points to be negotiated; the upcoming LGE being the first. The AFC is reportedly demanding 60 per cent of the total seats secured after the LGE.This demand comes after AFC Councillors in the Georgetown municipality has been sidelined by the APNU’s Councillors on a number of issues inclusive of the controversial parking meter project.In April, AFC Chairman Khemraj Ramjattan had said the parties are still trying to put certain mechanisms in place to ensure that they contest the elections with a good slate of candidates.“We have made a decision that we are going as a coalition. We have to trash out a number of issues preferably in relation to candidacy candidates, and number of other things,” he had told the press, while noting that the AFC has noticed some unfortunate development in the Georgetown municipality.Ramjattan was referring to the attitude of APNU Councillors, including Town Clerk Royston King towards AFC members, which he claimed is “bothering us.” The AFC Chairman indicated that statements in this regard have been made and will be officially raised through communication with APNU officials.In mid-January, Trotman had announced the possibility of the party breaking away from the APNU for this year’s LGE. The AFC leader went as far as to reveal that there was a strong opinion of body within the party that the AFC should go alone, which may have been prompted over delays with reviewing the Cummingsburg Accord.The AFC has, of recent, come under fire for the perceived submissive role it played when it joined forces with APNU. In 2017 top leadership of the AFC had decided to revise its governing agreement with APNU.Days later, General Secretary of the People’s National Congress (PNC), the leading party in the APNU coalition, Amna Ally, said the APNU is prepared to contest the LGE without the AFC. However, the President had hinted that contesting LGE as a coalition would have been the best option.Meanwhile, despite several infightings among coalition members, especially at the level of the City Council, Ramjattan sought to defend both parties when he was asked to comment on the issue. He claimed that the relationship particularly at the Central Government level is cordial.The 2015 Cummingsburg Accord only catered for arrangements between the two parties regarding the General and Regional Elections. To this end, the AFC proposed as part of the nine points up for negotiation that an agreement on LGE be crafted.The minority coalition partner detailed some of its positions for negotiation in the LGE Accord. The AFC’s NEC, after a May 1 meeting, had allowed additional time for the two coalition partners to have a definitive written agreement in the form of a Local Government Elections Accord.LGEs are scheduled for December. Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission, Justice (ret’d) James Patterson assured that the entity has done its ground work and is now awaiting the announcement of the date to be fully prepared for the Local Government polls.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – While word that BC’s crude oil production is at its highest level in nine years, that won’t likely lead to a boom like that seen in North Dakota in recent years, according to some.Oil analysts at Raymond James in Calgary say B.C. is becoming an emerging oil basin thanks to wells drilled by Calgary oil-and-gas producer ARC Resources in the Tower region, about 40 kilometres south of Fort St. John. Other companies that own land nearby, including Crew Energy and Tourmaline Oil, are expected to join the rush.The pool of oil extends about 100 kilometres from east to west and could ultimately prove to be as prolific as the best oil plays in Alberta and Saskatchewan. B.C. oil production peaked at about 100,000 barrels per day in 1998, statistics from the province show, but has fallen off dramatically since then as fields were depleted and investment dried up.- Advertisement -During a conference call in February, ARC’s CEO Myron Stadnyk said that three of the Tower Montney wells ARC drilled in 2015 were closing in on cumulative production of 100,000 barrels of oil. The wells are expected to cover costs and become profitable in less than a year at current prices. According to an ARC presentation, the wells break even at Cdn$30 per barrel. ARC estimates it has about 9.7 billion barrels of light oil originally in place on its Tower lands. Only a fraction of that is likely to be recoverable.Speaking with Energeticcity.ca, Art Jarvis, who is an Executive with Energy Services BC says that though the find is excellent news for the local oil and gas industry, the find isn’t large enough to create a boom that will result in a large number of jobs suddenly becoming available.With files from the Canadian PressAdvertisement
As they aim to lift the World Cup for a record sixth time in Moscow on July 15, their next opponents are Belgium in Kazan on Friday, in what will be something of a clash of styles — the best defence up against the best attack.This Brazil team is not just about Neymar, even if his theatrics and intermittent magic, like his opener against Mexico, are what immediately catch the eye and dominate the headlines.Look a little more closely and it becomes clear what is really making them tick — coach Tite has instilled an admirable collective discipline and his team are built on solid foundations.They have conceded just one goal so far at this World Cup, and Steven Zuber’s effort for Switzerland in a 1-1 draw in Rostov-on-Don could have been disallowed for a foul on Joao Miranda.Since then, goalkeeper Alisson Becker has kept three straight clean sheets, with Brazil winning 2-0 against Costa Rica, Serbia and Mexico. They have conceded just four shots on target in four matches.– Italian-inspired –It is the kind of record that the Italians, the old defensive masters who are conspicuous by their absence in Russia, would have been proud of. Brazil are looking to Italy for inspiration.“Juventus have been champions for the last seven years, and only once without having the best defence,” said Tite’s assistant Sylvinho, the former Arsenal and Barcelona left-back, after the Mexico game.“In such a short tournament, we want balance to be what characterises us, and that does not make us a defensive team.”Casemiro celebrating with Neymar at the end of Brazil’s 2-0 win over Mexico — but the Real Madrid man will be banned for the quarter-final against Belgium © AFP / MANAN VATSYAYANAHistory shows that the team with the best defence tends to win the trophy. And while Brazil have always possessed brilliant individuals, they have also long since been pragmatists above all else.There will be moments of magic from Neymar, who is gradually coming to the boil following foot surgery in March — as long as they go with defensive discipline.On Monday in Samara, Tite switched to a 4-4-2 formation after Mexico caused Brazil early problems, and they had a foundation to go on and win the game in the second half.Fagner might be a weak link at right-back, but there is strength in depth throughout the squad — Casemiro, Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho provide different qualities in midfield, while Willian came up with his best performance of the tournament against Mexico.Gabriel Jesus has yet to find the net, but Roberto Firmino came off the bench to score on Monday and is pushing for a start.Brazil defend from the front, with captain Thiago Silva admitting the aim is to concede no more goals.“That is our objective,” he said. “But always emphasising that the defensive part begins with the attackers. When the ball does come into our area, it is much easier to cut it out. Our attackers play a big part in that.”– Chink in the armour? –And so to Friday when Brazil, who have the joint-best defence at the tournament along with Uruguay, face a Belgium outfit who have been the most prolific with 12 goals scored.For now they are living up to their billing, although it remains to be seen how they will cope in the absence of Casemiro, the Real Madrid powerhouse who screens the defence from deep in midfield.He is suspended, meaning Fernandinho is likely to come in.The 33-year-old does not offer the same degree of protection, although his inside knowledge of Manchester City club colleague Kevin De Bruyne could be invaluable as Brazil look to keep their challenge for a sixth title going.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leading from the back: captain Thiago Silva wins a high ball against Hirving Lozano in Brazil’s win over Mexico © AFP / Fabrice COFFRINISOCHI, Russian Federation, Jul 4 – While some of their biggest rivals have already fallen by the wayside in Russia, Brazil have been making serene progress towards the latter stages of the World Cup.After watching holders Germany, Spain and Argentina all exit the competition in the last week in various states of disarray, the Selecao eased into the quarter-finals with a 2-0 victory against Mexico on Monday.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week John Lackey, gutty starter on short rest in the Yankee series, hung a few curves in the first inning and put his team in a 3-0 hole. Chone Figgins and Vladimir Guerrero continued to remain AWOL at the plate. The Angels got four hits against Jon Garland, who faced the minimum three batters in six of his nine innings. the fourth inning in Chicago’s eventual 5-2 win, even the crowd had lost its intensity. After spending the pregame and early innings booing the hell out of umpire Doug Eddings, the home plate umpire who blew the call on the controversial strikeout, and Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, the batter in question, the 44,725 at the Big A could barely muster a weak chorus of jeers for Pierzynski for his second at-bat. The Angels do not want to consider any lingering effects. They prefer to praise Chicago’s pitching and rely on the “What, me worry?” attitude they’ve depended on for several years as they stare at a 2-1 deficit in the best-of-7 series. “Why be concerned?” left fielder Garret Anderson said. “There’s a lot of baseball left to play. We haven’t pressed all year so there’s no reason to start now.” “We’ve gone through tough times and good times and we always take the same attitude, to just keep working and playing our game,” first baseman Darin Erstad said. “Worried?” Orlando Cabrera said. OK, having been with the Red Sox last season, the Angels shortstop is probably the last player to ask about concern. A cardinal rule of postseason baseball is also a cardinal rule of drinking. There’s always a hangover. The Angels to a man said they would move on and not be affected by any lingering resentment over the chaotic end of Game 2 the mistake, the theft, the Eddings-Pierzynski conspiracy, whatever you want to call it that left them tied in the AL Championship Series with the Chicago White Sox. Yet those were the Angels who moved oh so s-l-o-w-l-y Friday night, like a lumbering drinker unable to shake one off. But baseball history is flush with moments where a bad umpire’s call or a pivotal error or key play dooms a team regardless of what it says or does to turn the moment around. Don Denkinger blew a call at first base in Game 6 of the 1985 World Series, and the Cardinals lost the game to Kansas City then were buried 11-0 in Game 7. The blue blew an obstruction call in the 1969 World Series and a great Orioles team lost the series in five games to the Amazing Mets. Reggie Jackson stuck his hip in front of a relay to first base, the umps don’t make the obvious interference call, and the Dodgers lose Game 3 of the 1977 series and never recovered. Willie Davis made three errors in Game 1 of the 1966 World Series and the Dodgers were swept. The Oakland A’s never recovered from Kirk Gibson’s Game 1 home run in 1988. Bill Buckner’s gaffe gives the Mets Game 6 of the 1986 World Series and the Red Sox lose in seven. Do Angels fans need to be reminded of that same year, when they were an out away from winning the ALCS only to lose Game 5 and then get buried by the Red Sox twice? The Angels’ task becomes even tougher now, because they face Freddy Garcia in Game 4 today, the former Seattle Mariners ace who has owned the Angels since he broke into the game. Garcia has a career 11-3 record and 2.66 ERA against the Angels, and a 6-1 record in games in Anaheim. Thus far, it hasn’t mattered who the Sox have put on the mound. Their three starters to date Jose Contreras, Mark Buehrle and Garland have thrown 26.1 innings in three games and allowed just 16 hits. The hitting funk Figgins (.100 in the ALCS) and Guerrero (.083) have been in since the postseason began continues unabated. “We have some guys who are a little soft swinging the bat right now,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “Sixteen hits in the series … that’s unusual for us. It says a lot for their pitching.” Garland did pitch well. Having not pitched since Oct. 1, he was worried about the bite in his sinker so he threw more fastballs and had the Angels off stride. “We were looking for softer stuff,” Cabrera said. But Garland still came into the game 2-8 with a 4.91 ERA in his career against the Angels. The strain and injuries to Angels pitching in the Yankees series, meanwhile, is starting to reveal itself. The staff has performed superbly in the face of major personnel fissures, but these things usually catch up with a team. Jarrod Washburn’s illness in the Yankees series cost him a start and left him at less than 100 percent for his Game 2 start against the White Sox. Lackey may have been back on regular rest Friday, but he did pitch on three days rest replacing Washburn in Game 4. Friday, he hung a few curves, most notably a 3-2 breaking ball to Paul Konerko that the White Sox first baseman deposited 400 feet away to left-center. Bartolo Colon’s shoulder injury has ended his season and forced rookie Ervin Santana into the rotation. He’ll start Game 4 tonight. Paul Byrd will be starting Game 5 in the same situation as Lackey did Friday on regular rest but after a start that came on just three days rest. Other numbers also conspire against the Angels. In the last 16 ALCS, the team winning Game 3 with the series tied 1-1 has gone on to win 12 times. While the Angels have dominated the White Sox in Anaheim since 1995 (39-15), the 2005 Sox are now 54-29 on the road. The White Sox bullpen, meanwhile, which didn’t allow a run against the Red Sox in their division series, is well-rested, having been asked to get all of two outs in the three games. The White Sox player who made the Angels miserable Friday, Konerko, probably caused some indigestion for Dodgers fans, too. He went 3 for 4 with his home run and three RBI. Konerko was the 1997 Baseball American minor-league player of the year after hitting .323 with 37 home runs and 127 RBI and was considered a future cornerstone of the franchise. But the Dodgers tried to turn him into a third baseman in 1998 and were concerned about a potential degenerative hip condition. So amidst a slow start in ’98 he hit .215 with four home runs in 49 games and 144 at-bats and the chaos of the Bill Russell-Fred Claire firings, new interim G.M. Tommy Lasorda traded Konerko to Cincinnati for closer Jeff Shaw. More than 200 home runs later, Konerko has become an all-star power-hitting first baseman who has 81 home runs in the last two seasons and a career .280 average. The Dodgers, of course, haven’t had a regular, productive first baseman since Eric Karros. “He didn’t get a very good look with the Dodgers,” Scioscia said. Well, who does these days? Right now, the Angels look at the White Sox and their vision is blurry. They say they’re not worried, but forgive us if we advise them to sober up really quickly. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In addition, streets continue to deteriorate, and neither the county nor city of Los Angeles has been able to commit enough money to overcome years of neglect, the report said. Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen said the county has spent about $1.5 billion on infrastructure improvements in the past five years. “The areas that we are responsible for we have been investing quite a bit of money in infrastructure,’ Janssen said. “The public works department has also put up $60 million in clean water requirements, which is only a downpayment on a much larger bill. “We have been able to maintain roads in the unincorporated areas, but there hasn’t been much money to improve or add roads.’ William Higley, deputy director of the county’s Department of Public Works, said that $4.5 billion in transportation revenues has been diverted to the state’s general fund over the last three years. Higley said department spends about $180 million a year on county roads now, down from $210 million three years ago. “Overall, we’re seeing a reduction in our ability to invest in our roads, highways and infrastructure,’ Higley said. Gobas warned the cost of making upgrades will only get more expensive as time passes. Just two years ago, the group estimated the county needed to spend $4 billion a year on improvements. Aides to the Board of Supervisors said the report will be reviewed to determine what steps should be taken to deal with the issues. While the county should look to the state and federal government for help, Gobas said officials also need to face the prospect of paying for the necessary improvements. “When it comes down to it, it’s a matter of priorities that our residents and officials have to set,’ Gobas said. Melinda Barrett, who heads the public affairs group for the county’s Public Works Department, said the agency concurred with the group’s overall assessments. “This is an important document for the public to be aware of the need to maintain our system,’ Barrett said. “Unfortunately, this is one of those things that when everything is working as it is supposed to, no one thinks about. The only time anyone pays any attention when there is a failure. “We are spending a lot of time and money thinking about and dealing with these issues, but it’s important for the public to realize these programs need a consistent level of funding.’ Infrastructure systems that received higher marks reflected the county’s ability to either keep up with or slow a decline in services, the report said, noting that even with the problem of diminishing landfills the county’s solid-waste system earned the highest grade of B-plus. The county’s 5,731-mile flood-control system – which earned a B – proved itself during the winter’s near-record rainfall, but the report said the facilities are aging and need repair. The wastewater system – which also got a B – also is effective, although repairs and maintenance remain a concern. The port system earned its B because of its overall operation, the group said, but noted the need for improvements in everything from access roads to wharves. The D given to the urban-runoff system was based on an assessment of how well the county’s seven watersheds meet state water-quality standards. The average was pulled down by the Ballona Creek, Dominguez Channel and Santa Monica Bay watersheds, which each received a failing grade for violating water-quality standards, with no plans to make improvements. Assemblyman Keith Richman, R- Granada Hills, who has long stressed the need for infrastructure investments, told the engineers that statewide support has declined dramatically. Richman said that under former Govs. Edmund G. Brown and Ronald Reagan, infrastructure projects comprised 15 percent of the state budget. Today, he said, it represents less than 3 percent. “Hopefully, this update will help motivate citizens, civic leaders and elected officials to secure consistent funding for the area’s long term infrastructure needs,’ said Chris McKenzie, executive director of the California League of Cities. Staff Writer Troy Anderson contributed to this report. Rick Orlov can be reached at (213) 978-0390 or by e-mail at email@example.com. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The report card, released at the group’s annual meeting at USC, comes as population growth increases pressure on county facilities, despite millions of dollars in recent improvements. Gobas said traffic and landfills are among the most pressing problems. “This confirms what everyone who is sitting in traffic knows – it’s just gotten worse and worse,’ Gobas said. “And, on landfills, what we see is we are running out of landfill space and no one wants one. “It is the classic not-in-my-backyard mentality. But, we have to put the trash somewhere and it looks like it will mean more and more traffic to get the trash trucks to where they have to go.’ The report said officials have failed to deal with short-term transit improvements such as bus service, as well as long-range planning for mass-transit systems. With crumbling streets, gridlocked traffic and mounds of trash, Los Angeles County’s deteriorating infrastructure needs $50 billion in upgrades over the next five years to meet growing demands, a statewide engineers’ group said Thursday. Of nearly a dozen infrastructure systems studied, the county’s streets, highways and urban-runoff systems received the lowest grades – D’s – while its solid-waste system got a B-plus. Flood control, wastewater and port systems got B’s. Giving the county an average grade of C-plus, the American Society of Civil Engineers warned significant problems are on the horizon for the infrastructure unless there are changes in attitude and funding. “If the county doesn’t begin to make repairs now, if there is a failure, it could cost five times what we are talking about,’ said Harvey Gobas, chair of the Los Angeles County Infrastructure Committee and past president of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Los Angeles. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The Palmdale school board approved spending $14,840 to hire JT Engineering to study whether the district should proceed with the project. “The street plan for the school is insufficient to address the traffic flow. The district has researched the background on the project requirements and it is apparent that development of 67th Street East would be a possible solution for the traffic concerns,” a staff report said. “We are looking at the feasibility and cost to extend 67th Street East from the school north into an existing neighborhood,” Deputy Superintendent Lori Ordway-Peck said. “That would be another point of access.” School district and city officials are disagreeing as to whether the city asked the district to build 67th Street East. “As part of the conditions of development for that site, the district was required to build 67th Street East from R-8 to R-4 to improve circulation. They opted not to do it,” Padilla said. PALMDALE – Palmdale School District officials are looking into extending 67th Street East to ease traffic congestion that has prompted complaints from parents at a newly opened elementary school. Los Amigos School is on Avenue R-8, which in that area is not wide enough to handle cars going both ways and parking on both sides of the street. “There’s too much traffic on R-8. It’s like a cul-de-sac. It’s hard to move around and hard to get in and out,” said Bill Padilla, the city’s traffic transportation engineer. “There is no good circulation and no second point of access.” Building 67th Street East across a field would provide a second north-south access onto R-8 and to the campus, which opened in September. Currently parents can drive onto R-8 from 65th Street East. Ordway-Peck said there was a lack of communication. “I’m aware they think that. We have an approved set of plans that don’t show that. It’s bad communication,” Ordway-Peck said. “We have to get plans approved by the city. We do have plans that do not show that being required.” This was the second instance of city and district officials having a dispute over improvements for a school project. City officials last month said they told school officials to build improvements along Pearblossom Highway for Barrel Springs School, but district officials said they had no record of what city officials were referring to. The district is doing an engineering study after parents at Barrel Springs School, which is located at 37th Street East and Pearblossom Highway, expressed concerns about cars and big-rig trucks passing by at 65 mph on Pearblossom Highway.

Embed from Getty ImagesTottenham secured a third successive Premier League win to cement their place in the top four ahead of a huge Champions League second leg against Juventus next week. Here’s how we rated each Spur in the 2-0 victory over Huddersfield at Wembley.Hugo Lloris: 7Only had a handful of saves to make but he produced a fine stop to deny Tom Ince and prevent a Huddersfield equaliser just a minute before Heung-Min Son’s second goal.Serge Aurier: 8Embed from Getty ImagesAurier is really settling into his role and his crossing was a real threat, once finding Son in the box but the South Korean could not find his feet to seal his hat-trick.Davinson Sanchez: 7Made some important interceptions and tackles but got caught out by the speed of Ince when he burst through on goal and almost levelled shortly before Son’s second.Jan Vertonghen: 7Embed from Getty ImagesReturned to form immediately after a short spell out with injury, and had the better of Steve Mounie throughout the game especially in the air, where the Frenchman is dangerous.Ben Davies: 7Made a really good last-ditch tackle in the box late in the second half as the Terriers looked to get something from the game.Eric Dier: 8Embed from Getty ImagesSwitched into midfield after playing at centre-back against Crystal Palace last week, and continued to showcase the kind of versatility that makes him indispensable to the team. Made more passes than anyone else on the field.Mousa Dembele: 7Made fewer passes and was less explosive than usual but did little wrong in the game.Dele Alli: 7Embed from Getty ImagesSet up Son for his opening goal with a nicely-weighted through ball and made two other chances as he continued to be a thorn in the side of opponents.Christian Eriksen: 7Should have had two goals of his own; the first a free-kick that deflected onto the outside of the post and the second a great chance from inside the box that he sent straight at the goalkeeper.Heung-Min Son: 9Embed from Getty ImagesSon was the star of the show with two good goals that took his tally up to 15 for the season and 44 since joining the club in 2015. His all-round game was excellent and he has become a crucial goalscorer for Spurs.Harry Kane: 7Stuttered in front of goal but Kane provided the superb cross from deep for Son’s second goal – and it was pinpoint accurate.Erik Lamela: 6Lively after coming on for the final 20 minutes and forced a save from keeper Jonas Lossl after twisting and turning in the box.

This one is for the record books. Hello barbie; let’s go partyi got this wig for a friends fancy dress party where my husband and i went as barbie and ken. The medium length and style is both adaptable and changeable to suit many styles. The colour is a pale almost peroxided blonde and suits eyebrows of a lighter shade. I found the hair did get tangled a bit but spraying some water and conditioner solution and running a hair comb thorough it sorted out any problems right away. The aesthetic texture of the strands are quite plastic but then again, that was the look i was going for. It’s a very versatile and useful item to have in your closet and can be used over and over. I placed my hair in a stocking before placing on the wig and didn’t have any discomfort or irritation. It’s a nice fun and cliché item to purchase but is something you will get many laughs and memories out of. Well i never thought i’d be reviewing a wig on amazon but here it is. This is a brilliant fancy dress costume wig that is fun to wear. There is a sort of bra strap underneath which helps hold it securely on my head and the fringe is also a great addition that is a sweeping sideways look so looks very fashionable. It was good to try out a fringe to see if it suited methere is plenty of volume with this wig. I think the crown was sat a little high on me which made me look like i was smuggling drugs or something but it can probably be better placed with a bit more time spent adjusting. We plaited this wig to the side and it also looked a lot like elsa’s hair do from frozen (for an adult) this would be ideal if you are looking for a plumptious plenty of hair version rather than a single weedy plaiti really didn’t have to do much to style the wig, it was just a bit of fringe arranging really. I had to add a bit of red lipstick as the colour is so white it just washed out my face so i’d advice plenty of make up to balance the look. This made me realise that i really don’t suit my hair this light although i have dyed it almost this colour before in the past. You probably are not going to fool anyone with this wig, it does look and feel very fake but that is part of the fun of it. Great for cosplay or similar. (light blonde) picture is accurate description of colour, style and length. Colour is uniform across entire wig (i. It is made up of strands of a single colour). Hair feels somewhat synthetic, but is to be expected at this price. Because of the type of material used for the hair, it does tangle somewhat more than other more expensive wigs which use premium quality materials. In general, wig is great for cosplay or similar (which is what this wig is designed for) and you get a 28″ length wig for a low cost price. But if you want a very realistic or natural wig, you may be better off spending a bit more money on a different wig. You can get some very realistic ones from £20-£30 (with wigs of similar length to this one are likely to be at the higher end of this price range). Needed a wig for a fancy dress thing at work (long story) arrived the day after i ordered it which was a sunday so that was a nice surprise. Great colour, nice length, soft silky feel and a good price too. Needed to trim the fringe a bit but that was easy enough. I see lots of fun times with this wig coming up and might even get a few other colours?. A new career as a drag queen awaits lol. Beautiful, thick hair and comfortable wig cap. I bought this wig for some upcoming cosplay projects and have been able to style it in several different ways (bunches, plaits etc). It looks great and the colour is perfect. I ordered this for my daughter as she wants to go to a fancy dress party as sailor moon so this seemed the ideal colour and style for her to use to get her costume just right. My initial impressions of the wig when it arrived were good. I have purchased several dress up wigs in the past in the same price range and they have not come close to the quality of this one. This one has a good sized mesh cap which fits over the whole crown of the head and there are straps with hooks inside so you can adjust it to get a secure fit. The wig that i received matched the stock picture shown pretty well, the style was exactly the same, the colour a little more yellow toned in real life. I loved that the wig came with a wig cap which fitted over my daughter’s long hair and kept it securely out the way. I already had a wig brush and found the wig could be brushed neatly into its intended style and i used a tiny spritz of clothes softener mixed with water to help with static flyaways. Overall, this is a great cosplay wig that looks great and doesn’t seem to tangle like others i have purchased previously. Product purchased at a discounted rate in return for an unbiased review. I bought 4 of these in different colours because of losing my hair due cancer. Of course my extentions were now no good as no hair to clip to, hence it was the wig option. After a bit of scrutinizing on how to adjust the back i now have 4 wonderful exceptional new wigs. Im impressed with the style which is as shown as are the colours and length. Wonderful value for the price. These feel soft to the touch not course like some synthetic wigs. They are comfortable to wear, and as i have to have mine on 12 hours a day im impressed. My only dig is i wish they did a two tone in wine and brown. I could buy from another company i guess, however i wont as these wigs are very satisfactory. Do blondes really have more fun?. Good value for money and a lovely length and blonde tone. . I have quite a lot of wigs that i buy simply to change things up now and then when i go out. This light blonde wig is a nice length, just right and has a lovely thickness to it. The “flicks” in the wig along the ends of the hair give a very natural effect. The light blonde tone is a lovely colour and this wig could certainly be worn for so many different reasons ranging from cosplay to dressing up for a night out or just testing if blondes really do have more fun. I recommend you buy a wig stand if you buy this wig or have others to keep the hair nice and have it not get knotted up. Use a special wig comb to comb gently. The only reason why this wig did not get 5 stars from me is that i found the fringe hard to position and it doesn’t look quite like the picture, i had to spend a bit of time getting the wig into position and sorting out the fringe but aside from that for the money, it’s great fun and great value. Inexpensive wig – good value for money – could do with it being a little thicker – recommended. The product was supplied by the seller in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This is a decent quality 28 inch blonde eight. It looks fine on, and hangs well. It looks particularly good from behind. It could do with being slightly thicker, but for the price it is good value for money, and is ideal for dress up and fancy dress parties.
