I can’t say I’m not disappointed with WeLoveColor’s quality, and don’t tell me it’s because they’re only 8 dollars. In early June, I purchased Morona Opaque Grey Tights (Medium/Small) from Target for 7 dollars. They’re the exact same color as the paint I use, which is Snazaroo light grey. Not only is it thicker and contours to my arm better, but it’s seams are much smaller and blends much better. The WeLoveColor tights are not only MUCH bigger (I can tell I’m going to have to sew them extra to fit my arm snugly) but they’re also much less stretchy, as well as a cooler color of grey. Not to mention that the threadwork is more more noticeable. I’m surprised that the Homestuck fandom has sung the heavens of this product, considering the actual quality of the materials. Some people make it work, don’t get me wrong, but the material is a bit…lacking.
To my infinite sadness however, is that I can’t buy Morona Grey Opaque Tights anymore because they are discontinued in the Opaque Tights line. I can’t find them anywhere, not even online, and it’s killing me. I’ll miss wearing my old armsocks so much, I guess I’ll just have to make it work.
If anyone finds them, give me a holler. I would kill for another pair or two.
I’m not dissing the people who use the WeLoveColor brand tights, they’re not horrible quality or anything, it’s just I was expecting something very different from what I got.
