Claudia's Harumika Product Review


You've met Claudia Wolf, big sis to Clawdeen.  Today, we are going to get a look at her on the job.  She's a popular YouTube Style Guru and works from her apartment.  Let's watch!

"Hey, everyone!  Today I'm going to do a review on Harumika Shoe Fashion Sets.  I used a coupon and was able to pick these up at TRU for about $2.50 each.  I'm only going to be wearing the boots because the shoes are way too big.  These boots will fit both my Monster and Liv friends."

"Okay, I've unboxed everything and this is what I'll be working with today, including the outfit that came with my mannequin.  I'm going to see if I can make two quick outfits out of each fabric.  I'm going to use safety pins to hold stuff together and if I like a outfit I can always stitch it together later.  Get ready for the photos."

"These tights were a bit long on me so I had to tie a knot in them at the feet."

"This bottom fabric came with a seam already sewn into the middle of it.  That's a little awkward if I want a skirt, but it's perfect for making shorts."

"Yes, I know the first photo makes me look pregnant, but I'm not!  Don't spread rumors!  I love this fabric, it's so fun."

"You guys know that slinky, sexy isn't my style, but I'm making it work."

"This fabric was hard to work with, but I'm very pleased with the results.  It will show pin marks very easily though."

"That's it for today.  I hope you enjoyed the photos.  Overall, I'm going to recommend this product.  It was fun to work with and as you can see you can get many looks out of it.  As always, thanks for watching.  Don't forget to Like, Comment and Subscribe!"

  11. Thanks everyone for your great comments!

    I forgot to mention that the boots also fit Barbies for anyone that doesn't realize that Claudia is on a Fashionista body. The shoes wont fit Barbies or Liv and they just barely fit Monsters.

    If you buy those lamps at Dollar Tree, fair warning that my purple ones burned out in about 2 hours, but the green one kept going for maybe 5 hours. But hey, they are only a buck.

    Some of the clothing pieces are pre sewn, particularly the ones with sleeves, but you can still change the design since they come as two halves and not a whole garment. The leggings are sewn completely but the top is unfinished.

    Thanks, again!

  12. Fabulous job! I love her apartment. You were super creative in creating that. Love those outfits too. Good to know what's possible in the event I find myselt in TRU and they are on clearance.

  13. Thanks, Vanessa. I was surprised myself at what good outfits you could make with just a little piece of hankie and safety pins.
