Im going to Vegas this summer and I’m looking for fun, kinda wild clothes for 100+ degree weather. I’m not looking for like pasties or lingerie, but like crop tops and deep Vs. More “instathot” less “$5 hooker”. But if I search “sexy” I get like. BDSM bralettes and man-thongs. Any suggestions/stores?
>>10120613have you tried searching for 'cropped'? It seems like an obvious search term but it's what I tend to use most for cropped items
>>10120613Uh...depends on your taste really. How do you feel about short-shorts overalls, or sheer tops? Pleated very mini-skirts and those multistrap bra things under a white t-shirt maybe? Something wide side-boob or cutouts? You have to be more specific about what you want to look like when you search for stuff. What does your ideal instathot outfit look like?
>>10120613These have been sitting in my cart, mostly coz I'm unsure if I have the boobies to fill them out. Hope it helps anonTry "festival, glam, spaghetti strap, backless, bodycon" if you want something on the wilder side - doesn't filter out hooker but it gets a few less bland hits. Also try sorting by most orders as a filter, hopefully by doing that you'll find more tasteful stuff. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/GACVGA-2017-Glitter-Women-Rhinestone-Party-Tank-Tops-Summer-Beach-Crystal-Bustier-Crop-Top-Sexy-Diamonds/32817085476.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/Festival-Queen-Sexy-Diamonds-Mesh-Cropped-Tank-Top-Women-Summer-Cover-Up-Bikini-See-Through-Rhinestone/32896706883.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/2018-Fashion-Womens-Summer-Camis-Tanks-Tops-Sleeveless-Cotton-Bustier-Unpadded-Bandeau-Bra-Vest-Crop-Top/32880268762.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32936376619.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/FestivalQueen-Brilliant-Rhinestone-Backless-Party-Crop-Top-Women-2019-Summer-Deep-V-Neck-Night-Club-Diamonds/32903931126.html
>>10120613>>10121775A couple more. Try satin camis, and throwing in words like party or summer when searching V necks. For some reason, my idea of instathot is the rather plain, nude+black+white look, might be just the ones I follow.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Conmoto-Club-Satin-Women-Solid-Camis-Top-Spaghetti-Strap-Summer-Camis-Shirts-Backless-Solid-Sexy-Casual/32960767379.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/Lily-Rosie-Girl-White-Lace-Dot-Women-Mini-Dresses-Summer-Sexy-V-Neck-Party-Beach-Mesh/32843021293.htmlhttps://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32858845391.html
I just got this in and LOVE IT! for my wonderland coord.
>>10120746I’ve definitely gone through quite a few pages of “cropped” lol. And “crop” and “croptop” >>10121776>>10121775Thanks! “Festival” seems like a good idea. It’s pretty close to what I’m looking for. Thanks for all the suggestions. Definitely put a few in my cart >>10121760I have literally like no tits so super deep v and like scoop necks are like what I find myself trending towards. I have no side boob so the one super-backless sideboob swimsuit I got was uhhh not a good look. If anything it flattened me out even more. Honestly I kinda dig punk/alternative outfits but there’s not too much of an in between with those. I dig the fishnet/ripped jeans combo and outfits kinda like that, the like “fashionable punk” that’s definitely not punk anymore but I don’t know how to describe it.
>>10122990the term "streetwear" brings up some options you might enjoy, just filter it to womens fashion
Is it normal for store pages to have the exact same item with the exact same images? I'm looking for a specific vest and after doing some research I'm left with three different sellers and they all have nearly identical reviews/feedback. It's my first time using the site so I can't really distinguish between scams well.
>>10125463Yeah, it's pretty normal. A lot of stores sell stuff from the same factories, or items that are replicated on a more popular store's items. The identical reviews thing is a little weirder though.
Just a few accessories and wigs this time. I want to decorate the beret and little suitcase with bows and lace to make them cuter.Whole lower row has already arrived.

So I've actually done it. I bought this replica (with the intention of cutting it up and sewing a skirt out of it since high-waist JSKs don't suit me).Fabric is really thin but it's soft and the print is surprisingly good.
>>10125737omg links and reviews to the wigstheyre so cute
>>10126526nnnnn anon you know if you wear it to anything or if photos of you wind up online you're gonna get c r u c i f i e d
>>10126777I agree that that anon's comment is cringe, but replicas are cringe af too.
>>10126749pff. AP is replica-tier-quality nowadays anyway. honestly who cares anymore.
>>10126526Art theft isnt kawaii, anon
>>10126802Yeah, because buying brand second hand means it goes back to the designer's pocket.
>>10126835>defending art theft this much
>>10126802>using cringe as an adjectivecringe
>>10126749>>10126833I know and I do feel a little bad for buying it.
>>10126839>not understanding how artists get paid this muchcry more
>>10127050Don't feel bad. The original artist wasn't paid for it, and you're not paying hyper-inflated second hand prices that don't do anything for the original designers.If it's unavailable for purchase from the original providers, that's on them.People would cry and shit themselves if you touched the actual thing too.
>>10125737Link to the red wig anon?
Any cute clothing recs? (Casual or semi-formal clothing, I'm not into Lolita).

I'll review once I get them!
>>10126526>>10127050>the print is surprisingly goodi can tell from this preview image that the print's ratio is off, it's too big, and looks faded to boot.Holy lantern comes in 2 different styles of skirts and has been re-released, both in general releases and as a made-to-order, MULTIPLE TIMES - there's really no excuse for getting a replica.>>10127055> original artist wasn't paid for itare you saying the original designer from AP wasn't paid - do you have proof of this, sounds like a big fat fuckin' lie>you're not paying hyper-inflated second hand priceswhen's the last time you've looked at holy lantern second-hand sales? all the re-releases/MTOs has kept the price at or below retail for most everything.>If it's unavailable for purchase from the original providers, that's on them.you're not entitled to steal to own something simply because you don't have the money to afford it, or patience to wait for what you want to buy to pop up either from AP or secondhand.
>>10127495These are awesome, thank you!
>>10127690you're welcome! everything except upper right has arrived if you have any questions.>>10127497>and looks faded to bootnayrt, but the print actually isn't faded at all (at least for the red version), the stock photo is just bad or there's a filter on it. Here's a pic of it (didn't bother to iron it yet though, sorry for that).I'm sure it doesn't compare to the original, but for that price it's decent, especially if it's getting turned into something different.
>>10127704yikes, tha looks like shit. Seriously don't know why anyone would waste money on this shit when the original dress is everywhere. Plus, I don't know about you, but I'd much rather have the original thing, alter it, and be wearing an altered original instead of this trash. Have fun being a clown
>>10127722your behavior is so incredibly embarrassing LOL
>>10127704Not the other anon but this doesn’t look great. Mostly because the fabric looks super cheap and thin in addition to a lot of the print details looking globby.
>>10127722>being this madoh lol
Why is everyone defending replicas in this thread yikes
>>10127704This looks so bad anon. I hope you didn't pay more than a couple dollars for it...
>>10127737NAYRT but this looks like some SheIn tier stuff.
>>10127747>aliexpress tards are cheapskate replica-chansWho woulda thought
>>10127704Y I K E SIKES
>>10127704AYRT, while it doesn't look faded it definitely doesn't look as sharp as it is supposed to, and the size of it is STILL off. Why not just wait a few months until AP makes yet another yearly holy lantern MTO?I'm not even against replicas - but for something as common as holy lantern, that AP has done their best to make it widely available and easily accessible, over and over again - c'mon, man.
Why is everyone acting like anon is going to straight-up wear the replica when she stated she was going to cut it up. I wouldn’t want to see someone multilate an actual HL dress, personally.
>>10128100even if it's just being used for fabric, it's still supporting the existence of replicas, hurting the brand it's copying from.Also, it isn't like holy lantern didn't come in a skirt.>>10126526 is either cheap or lazy (or both) and directly hurt the brand they're trying to pretend they're wearing.
>>10128100>Why is everyone acting like anon is going to straight-up wear the replica when she stated she was going to cut it up.Because she said she is turning it into a skirt because she doesn't like the way the original's cut looks on her?????
>>10127704Wrinkles look shitty but it actually looks better than the stock photo. Print doesn't look "globbier" than the original imho, original flocking doesn't look super sharp anyways. I have a real HL but I was thinking about getting a replica to wear as a sundress or something since caring and cleaning for flocking is a pain in the ass.
Just sitting here to see the derailing
ignoring the replica-chan...does anyone have any recommendations for cute small home goods? like desk organizers/small plant pots/picture frames, etc. i might just be using bad search terms but i keep being disappointed with what i’m finding. i just want my home to be as cute as my dresses
>>10127495this is great, but i think the link for the star sweater is totally wrong.
>>10128480hah, you're right. here's the correct one:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Women-s-Turtleneck-Sweaters-Sexy-Star-Embroidery-Pullover-Sweaters-High-Necked-Jumper-Knit-Top-Fashion-Black/32751021588.html
>>10128519thank you so much, this sweater is too cool.
>buys costume in January >seller takes sweet time shipping it (late February)>Hits customs in March. >need it in May how fucked am I
>>10128702depends on country, but probably not fucked. longest customs has ever had one of my packages has been a week and a half in the US.
>>10128706USA and my package is at Chicago’s customs, which is apparently known for never ever giving you your shit. I just checked and even thought it was tracking just fine from China to Chicago it now says “label created not yet in system.” I’ve never had an item in customs before, so Im probably worrying over nothing but is this worth a phone call?
>>10128715that happens anon, don't worry about it. it's because it was transferred from china post to us post. it happens for every single package I get from overseas, LA or chicago customs.
>>10127704The fabric looks really thin, and towards the bottom it looks like there is a darker red splotch by the cross and star in the left. I hope you didn't spend over $50.
>>10129490Anon nayrt but that's obviously a shadow... Get your eyes checked.
>>10128728Thank you for keeping my calm the other night, anon. The tracking number went back to normal anyways. I’m gonna chill out and hopefully it’ll be here by May.
>>10129586You're welcome! I'm glad I could help. It happens a lot when it goes from one country's postal service to another. Good luck getting your package!
>>10127704>>10128121I'm not one of the other haters but eh, maybe pass on this one. It's actually the waist seam that got me, it looks like one of the messes that newbies post to one of the sewing threads and then you have to tell them they need to press their seams *while they're making the dress, not wait until the end and then the seams are so thickly layered it's hard to press anything correctly anymore. It's a replica, so I get that people have lowered expectations, but I don't see the point of pissing money at buying something you know is definitely badly made *and* it still gets you guaranteed haters if people do see you wearing it.I'm sort of in a similar boat, have two HL and one of them hasn't even been worn because I never managed to verify if my local drycleaners actually uses PCE solvents or not, one of the staff looked like they'll say 'yes' to anything if it gets a sale for them. I've actually considered clobbing together some freebie stock art so it looks sort of similar to HL (but isn't a direct scan, so it won't be a replica) and send it in to someplace like artcow or spoonflower to get a dress that looks like HL, but is definitely easier to care for.
>>10129647I'm the sundress anon and that's actually a good idea! I have a design education and I can sew too but I never got fabric printed and I'm scared how much it'd cost to get it printed & shipped. If it costs more than the replica I may not bother.
>>10128377Depends on the style, trying to use any keyword you could possibly imagine might help. Sometimes related products are way better than anything in the searches. I too am still mostly mystified how anybody finds anything on aliexpress since so many results are just the same thing from a different seller. Dedication or a secret technique, maybe.
How are wowo u costumes and wigs?
>>10129654Artcow prints directly onto dresses, they're regularly $18~$50 (they have coupon codes and promotions quite often so that drops the prices of some of the dresses). If you can find a dress cut that you like, this seems to be a decent option than getting a replica. Spoonflower isn't cheap, but you get full control of what you want to make with it. You can tell I've thought about this idea a lot, I just don't really have the right software and the right clipart to create any of it yet (and anyhow I'd probably start with a Dream Marine-inspired swimwear, which is something I've always wanted).
>>10129955Nayrt, but I wouldn't recommend Spoonflower. You might get exactly what you paid for, or get bad fabric with a badly printed print with wildly off colors. Check out their trustedpilot reviews, can confirm this was my experience.
>>10130128ayrt, and I've been using spoonflower for a while. Got a misprint once and spoonflower sent me a reprint foc (they requested a photo of the misprint but it was part of a bundle and they didn't ask for it back). Considering I'm overseas that's a pretty decent response.What issues did you have? If you don't mind sharing? I think some people get annoyed because they can't brain designing around how the fabric absorbs the ink vs how the screen displays, but really if you test some designs on your home printer, use regular paper with high absorbency, it does a fairly good job of approximating how the print will turn out. If you print at 150dpi it even approximates whether a super intricate pattern will turn into mush due to the dpi.
>>10129699i’ve tried all the keywords I can think of and it always just turns up the same boring/ugly stuffmight just stick to diy/thrifting
>>10129709Is there a specific costume you're thinking of, anon? I have three costumes from them. They're decently made, a pretty safe bet. The gold trim on one of my costumes looks super cheap but when doesn't it on bought cosplays lol. I would say the measurements are pretty accurate, but pay extra attention to them if you're slightly larger-chested. I only have one wig from them and it's not bad, I had to hot water straighten it because it was packed awfully, but besides that decent enough. Not Arda quality ofc but again, a safe bet. I'd suggest ordering from their Taobao store if you have the option though, they're marked up to hell on Aliexpress.

Should I wait for the anniversary sales before I buy my cart? Do the “SALE” prices listed below the now-active prices stay the same?
>>10132837Yes I want to know this too!
>>10132503I really do want a shirt that says that
>>10132837not sure about the anniversary sale but for the 11/11 sale the items in my cart checked out for the sale prices instead of the normal prices before. So I'd say it's worth waiting.
I bought some led strips for my cosplay but then found out that they arent individually addressable (you can only program three lights at a time) and now i dont want them anymore but my order just shipped... not really sure what to do now. I guess I have to deal with it?
>>10133946You might be able to return, but you'll have to pay return shipping which probably won't be worth it. If the description is misleading/doesn't say that it's not individually addressable, you might have a case to get a partial refund.
Thinking about ordering some lingerie (I'm prett flat so Asian sizes would actually be nice) but I'm worried about quality. Any recommendations maybe?
stupid question, but anyone bought a houseki no kuni cosplay from ali? How did it turn out?
Something I found randomly.I need it.
Aliexpress pin game too strong
>>10134162I’m always wary to buy those pins because I’m sure they’re ripped off from some Instagram artist.
>>10134162link please these are great
>>10134164this pretty much
>>10134164They are. If it's an enamel pin, it's ripped off from the indie artist who hired a Chinese factory to make them. It's gotten really bad lately... used to be just random designs here or there, but there are now entire shops just stuffed with indie shop owner pins now.

Look closely at the instructions for purchasing boxed goods" and I'm not really sure what that's supposed to mean.I checked the description and there's a lot of text, but all of it is in images so it wont translate.. Would it be fine to just order or..?
>>10135146Please do not buy prize figures from taobao/ali etc.They're easy to get from more legit places (with less shipping and fees) and prize figure bootlegs are the saddest thing if you happen to get one.
>>10135146Search for Dagashi Sega on eBay and you can have the official version of this fig shipped to you for less than $40 total and it won’t look like garbage.
>>10135146Boxed goods means it comes with the box.Ali sellers usually offer it cheaper if they don't have to give you the box as well.I've gotten the digimon Taichi and Daisuke figures through Ali and both look as good as the official ones.Really wish they'd bootleg the Mimi one because I don't have $200 for a figure.
>>10135215>>10135219It's actually my bf who wants to buy it, so I'm just asking for him I've warned him several times that it might look really bad, but he doesn't really seem to care. The pictures in the reviews look decent, so we'll see. Worst case scenario he gets a shitty figure and either learns a lesson or likes it. Either way it's his money, so I'm not gonna argue with him about it lol>>10135404Thank you anon! :)
Recommendations for places to buy fabric and other accessories? Obv. looking for cheaper but reliable places.Thanks.
any cute swimsuits you gulls are eyeing for the summer?
>>10139582Not that I'll ever actually go swimming but I'd like to find a swimsuit with shorts that isn't ugly for once
>>10139582I got this one from yesstyle, but found a similar one on Ali I'll link below. I bought it because the high waist appealed to skinnyfat me. It does work really well for hiding that embarrassing belly fat. It's really pretty. There's wiring in the bra which I'm not a fan of, and the bikini leg holes are kind of small, but it's definitely made out of spandex or spandex like material and will very much definitely hold up in water. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2019-Bikini-Set-Brazilian-Women-Swimsuit-Pad-Push-Up-Hight-Waist-Bandage-Swimwear-Flower-Print-Summer/32957951156.html?spm=2114.10010108.1000014.2.69694fbcvOhO8e&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller&scm=1007.13338.125185.0&scm_id=1007.13338.125185.0&scm-url=1007.13338.125185.0&pvid=8c06f3de-d73f-421d-be2f-a8c861827510I bought the M size and I'm B29/W25/H31.

My question is, what size should I order? My bust is a 36 so I don't know If i should get a small or a medium. I'm worried the small might be too tight and the medium might be too loose. I'm leaning towards small as most of the measurements for that line up with what I actually am. Thoughts?
>>10144230It's easier to take in something that is too big than it is to add room to something too small
>>10142460it came in finally and its not bad. not itchy at all thankfully. Now to wear it with a nice coord.
Anyone who bought lolita/j fashion wigs off Ali has any recomandations? Links to cute pastely things more than welcomed
Anyone have any recommended stuff in terms of pajamas and workout clothes? I ordered one thing that looked cute but the fabric wasn't breathable enough to comfortably sleep in.
Are there any specific shops or stores that people here recommend, kind of like how the Taobao thread has their own store spreadsheet? Maybe we could compile another spreadsheet for Aliexpress purposes?
Does anyone know about the shipping service some aliexpress sellers use called Yanwen? I've seen some really bad reviews about that, and I've been waiting for a package that is past its delivery date and tracking hasn't updated in 11 days. Should I just get a refund or wait?
>>10146854I don't know Yanwen, but no tracking update in 11 days isn't that unusual. AliEs tracking can be buggy. Half of my stuff doesn't get tracking updates even when it's already arrived.Keep in mind that the package is from China and has got to go a long way, so don't be so panicky, anon. Wait some more.
>>10146854Wait till it's about 7 days from buyer's protection running out, contact the seller, possibly extend the protection an extra week-2. If still not there file then.I've had some items take 3 months while others only took 2 weeks. It depends on what you bought too. Jewelry and other small stuff has really hit and miss shipping. I've lost multiple Zelda heart piece necklaces (for some reason it's only ever those so I stopped trying to get one) but rarely clothes
Does anyone else have problems with getting a lot of "this page is unavailable" errors?Even when going directly from a shop's page I keep getting those errors. And 90% of the "find more" stuff is also unavailable somehow.
>>10148989yes, I do since yesterday
>>10148989I also do as of two days ago. Haven't found a solution yet.
I'm looking for a skirt like in the pic for my gf to wear around the house: low waisted, long enough to cover the butt, and solid colour (not plaid). Ali or other site.We got something like this, and it's fun, but too short:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Sexy-Short-Mini-Skirt-Women-Micro-Mini-Skirt-Dance-Clubwear-Metallic-Pleated-Skirt-5-Colors/32951311119.htmlAs well as something like this, which is also nice, but would prefer not high waisted:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ELEXS-Women-Fashion-Summer-high-waist-pleated-skirt-Wind-Cosplay-skirt-kawaii-Female-Mini-Skirts-Short/32911987061.htmlSeems like all the "lingerie / fetishwear" ones are way too short (8-9"), and the "normal / fashionable" ones are all high-waisted (15-17").Does this even exist? Before I started looking I assumed it would be a very common item, like something people would wear with tights underneath.
>>10149227a protip is that if something looks like it comes to a lower mid thigh on the model, chances are that they stretched the model and it will actually hit right below the butt on an average person with the butt showing if they walk around.So any average pleated skirt will do, as long as it's shorter than midi length.
has anyone bought this? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Trytree-Spring-summer-Women-two-piece-set-Vintage-Fashion-tops-skirt-Top-turn-down-Collar-Office/32912065862.html I think it would be a nice outfit for work. I work retail so I'd like to know before I buy. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Korea-Style-Simulated-Pearl-Wood-Fur-Ball-Heart-Shape-Clip-on-Earrings-Non-Piercing-for-Women/32847339301.html would look nice with it
Any recs for cute mesh/sheer tops that will work with Lolita?
Can anybody rec wigs?Like wigs you have actually ordered and looked good upon arrival, not just in the photos the seller provides.
Has anyone had good experiences buying shoes on Ali? I've seen a couple lolita style shoes but have been too nervous to actually order them
>>10151925I really like Vanyar
>>10150510Really, anon? You can't tell by the pictures how shitty and costume-like that looks? Don't embarrass yourself by wearing that garbage. You're better off wearing lolita to work.
>>10150510it looks really costumey and irl it would barely cover your butt. Perhaps at F21, but I'd just get a pencil skirt and white top from H&M, because even that would look better.
>>10151979As far as I know, they're only on taobao. Not Aliexpress.
>>10151978I've bought four pairs from four different sellers over the years, no major complaints. Nothing very lolita though.
>>10151925What kind of style? I bought this recently and it's very nice quality but doesn't fit my big head :/ https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Similler-Cosplay-Long-Wavy-Full-Synthetic-Wigs-for-Women-Blue-Fluffy-Hair-Wig-with-Cap-25/32901787599.html
>>10152260>doesn't fit my big headI feel you anon
>>10152305Bless Arda Wigs, they're expensive but at least they stay on my head without sliding off or pressing my brain out of my ears
>>10151925Bump. I too need something cute for lolita/j fashion/lazy days
>>10152260Wigs with a fringe, that don't look cosplay-ish, good for everyday and lolita
In warmer weather I'm going through sheer tights like crazy and am tired of paying out the ass for them, so a bunch of those, including a couple pairs of those best-selling ones that supposedly don't run even with holes in them. Anyone ordered those before? If it's a good experience, I'll definitely stock up.If you have one of those ikea beds with mattresses that are only 80cm in width, there's box sheets for those, in many different colors, not that cheap but about retail and convenient if just going to the nearest ikea costs a bunch of time and money. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1pcs-100-Cotton-Solid-Color-Fitted-Sheet-Stripe-Mattress-Cover-Four-Corners-With-Elastic-Band-Bed/32825325679.html?spm=a2g0s.9042322.214.171.124124c4dvGGKCnThis was my first order and I got a few error messages before it went through. Listed as having left China now.Also got four of pic related, hope they're as cute as they look.
>>10134159give link now
Why even put the faster shipping options if sellers are still going to default to the same slow ass 4 week shipping?
>>10153371link for the tights?
>>10154102as a way to scam idiots who don't think. It's China, the quickest a package is getting here is 2 weeks if you live in one of the states that does the importing. 4 weeks is the average and it's not gonna change
>>10154282Haven't arrived yet so I can't guarantee quality.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/BONAS-2018-New-15D-Sexy-Breathable-Tights-Tear-resistant-Women-Pantyhose-Ultra-thin-Nylon-Tights-Stretchy/32891757288.html?spm=a2g0s.89374126.96.36.19952e0enUzLZI
has anyone bought el wire from aliexpress? i cant imagine there being a difference between cheap el wire from China outside of it possibly arriving broken
>>10150510>retail worker thinking this looks acceptable as professional attireanother reason why minimum wage should not exceed $15/hr
>>10155619A lot of stores want their shopgirls to look edgy/hip instead of professional. I can’t think of many shops where this weird outfit would work, though. Unless anon is trying to cosplay as a department store elevator girl in 1980s Japan.
>>10155622>A lot of stores want their shopgirls to look edgy/hipLol what. If it's a fringe clothing store like Hottopic maybe. Even shit like Macy's has their employees wear business casual and F21 has them wear their cheap shit. Thats burgerland anyway
>>10155625Have you really only ever shopped in shitty chain mall stores? No such thing as independent boutiques in the midwestern hellhole you live in?
Made my first ali order all year! I stopped buying because I'm still new to jfash aside from lurking and don't want to accidentally buy a replica. I hope I haven't fucked up already.
>>10156740pink dress is going to look like a sack on you. Blouse you may be safe with, that material doesn't look too bad.
>>10157604That's unfortunate. I think I'm sewing savvy enough to try and refit the dress so I'll see when it comes in.
>>10148989Man, I thought I was the only one.. Thank you for the notice that you get this shitty error too.
>>10156740dunno how much you bought those for but i’m 100% sure those are on taobao as well, probably a lot cheaper because aliexpress items can be ridiculously overpriced sometimes
Any suggestions for earrings?
>buy two dresses>wait over 2 weeks to be shipped>1,5 weeks later receive package >only one dress inside >message seller and get a reply almost a week later "Oh lol sorry it was out of stock and we're getting more in a week"
>>10159343This is a very broad question

Anyone know the story behind these bags? Are they copied from a real brand? I see several similar looking types of bags with different names on them.
>>10159415Loved these till I realized they're just printed out images on plastic
>>10159455Was trying to figure out the same thing a few months ago. Some of the bags these shops sell are copied from the Korean brand Neon Moon (http://neonmoon.co.kr/index.html) but the Heart Breaker and Bentoy ones, though I've seen Bentoy stuff on other sites?
>>10159511the Heart Breaker and Bentoy ones I haven't been able to source*
Any opinions on either of them? I thiiiink I saw a review for dress on right somewhere, and it was decent iirc.
>>10159533The right one is a sad replica of Baby's Babydoll JSK. Just buy the original.
>>10159415they're beautiful thank you
does anyone know if these charms are replicas of anything? i have the strongest feeling that they're knockoffs of swimmer designs, but i can't confirm. lolibrary doesn't have much swimmer stuff so i've looking at secondhand sites just to see if i find anything
>>10159546even if they are swimmer, swimmer is out of business so it's not as harmful to buy replicas.can I get a link btw?
>>10159533I have right in black and pink. Construction is decent only I don't like how they placed the waist ties. They're a bit too long imo which makes it hard to make a proper nice looking bow.
>>10159572bought mine off taobao tho
>>10159535too simple to be a replica
>>10159455I just so happened to be looking through an issue of kera from 2017 and it seems the heartbreaker one is a wc bootleg. they only showed this sweater with the logo but I think I remember seeing the purse when I went to harajuku in 2017.
>>10159576It's literally a replica of a very well known dress by Baby
>>10159582I mean is a very simple design to 'copyright' it. Like jeans or sneakers
>>10159644It's still an obvious knockoff through, and a bad one at that.
>>10159511>>10159578Thanks! I was curious where they might be from since I see them pop up a lot.
>>10159455copied from the brand mix mix, its a korean brandthe line is called heart club
Has anyone seen this bath mat/know the artist around on taobao or AE? I saw it on a website called sincerelysweetboutique.com. A large majority of things they sell look like overpriced taobao type goods, so I figured this might be too. It might be original to their store, but they don't specify. I can't make out what the script says. ("Goody illustrand"?) Thanks!
>>10159533I have the one on the left in red.It's pretty nice, but since it's being sold in several stores the quality might vary depending on where you buy.All the bows needed to have the edges burned and re-tied/sewn so they wouldn't come undone.It is comfortable but I still couldn't figure out the waist ties, it comes with a thin, longer ribbon but the dress has sewn-in waist ties on the back.
>>10161331I've seen the rabbit before on Ali stuff like pjs and some bags I think so yeah it's some brand
>>10161331Ah jeez, I've seen something like this at Kiddyland in Tokyo, but I can't remember WHEN I saw it.
>>10161331>>10161577I FUCKING FOUND IT! Artist is Foxy Illustrations. Here's her insta. https://twitter.com/____foxy____?s=17
>>10161564>>10161577that rabbit is 100% esther bunny, so this is a ripoff of a ripoff.
>>10161582>here's her insta>twitter linkhmm
>>10161786I’m sure you have the brain cell to find their instagram via their twitter. Anon probably got mixed up
>>10161582Thanks for tracking it down!
>>10156740link for the blouse?
What's this bikini skirt called? Or what would be good keywords for it?
>>10162520>>10162520nvm found it: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Lolita-Shirt-/32862905921.htmlrecent order, everything's in except the first two!
>>10128744bitch what the fuck i paid $30 for this exact top in cream at zara
>>10162588link to dresses shop and swimsuit pls
>>10163061dresses: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1762773swimsuit: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/swimsuit/32639368429.htmlfor some reason the yellow dress is a different fabric from the other two, and is much rougher. The other two are really soft and nice though, so just be careful!
>>10163748Is the swimsuit made of fabric you can actually swim in? Can't tell from the photos or the listing.
My stationary addiction has kicked in again so I bought a few packs of cute stickers to fill the void.
>>10170340link to the bottom image??
>>10156740Blouse looks really Dense-ish fabric, Like something for fall or winter, it has a Bulky feel to it.
>>10170340Link to the topmost and bottommost please?
What on Earth would you call something like transparent book wrap but sparkly?? I want it to put over my photos so it makes them sparkly but you can still see the picture underneath? I have tried glitter sheet, glitter film, sparkle sheet, adhesive glitter film. And everything is no results or just not what I am looking for.
>>10171061I've found some on ebay using the terms "contact" "transparent" etchttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Glitter-Contact-Paper-Kitchen-Door-Cover-Vinyl-Wallpaper-Self-Adhesive-Sticker/273335623713
>>10171066Thanks! Ill try some of these words! I have bee to purikura places who wrap the photo sheet for you with this.. so I'm thinking SURELY its a readily available thing?
>>10171073Yeah, most of the listings I've found have been in bulk, like 40USD for a bunch of sheets, which is fine if you're planning on reselling art prints n stuff but I just want it for personal craft projects
>>10171086never heard of primark. Also ali does have sales on items if you actually watch certain items and pay attention to them. The big "sale" events are iffy but I do notice price drops on stuff all the time
Feeling like a right degenerate after this order. The lace up underwear is men's underwear but I hope it'll fit me.
Has anyone found any dark purple wigs that they liked when they got it in person? I've been looking for something with a similar shade to ravens hair teen titans, I've found some but I'm concerned I'll buy it, wait the entire ship time, and get it only to see it's really shiney and synthetic looking.
Recommendations for wigs that would fit on a big head? Last wig I ordered was super pretty but way too small :(
>>10171470let me know how the bottom left is please anon, i've been looking at it for a while!
>>10171470Link for top left? Looks cute but also could be elastic trash.Recently got something similar to the top on bottom right, hope you're not busty cause mine barely fit cause of mine.
>>10171471Are you twelve?
>>10172414I too find it a weird thing to buy. But then again people who buy sex toys are weird to me. I do sometimes look at them in alieexpress to see what kind of retards buy silicone dildos and get yeast infections.
>>10173551And on Aliexpress of all places? Given the smell of some plastic items I've ordered I would not put anything from there near my vagina
I want to buy some cute shoes but asian feet are so small and mine are like, size 11.
My tax return has made me mad with power, I got like $200 worth of shit in my cart an I'm still not done. I love aliexpress.
>>10161331https://foxyillustrations.comFoxy has a phone case with that design, but that's it. At least from what I see on their site.
Just got all this. I'm really excited.
>>10174406link for black polka dot skirt please
>>10174406Link to the peach shirt?
>>10120613Clubwear. That's likely what term you need. The classy prostitute versus five dollar hooker stuff is mixed in together with that search term.
>>10170822>>10170388All are from the same store called Mohamm Store.B&W Stickers:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32870910434.htmlBottom Image:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32988926175.html
This is my first time ordering from aliexpress. Should I be worried? This status hasn't changed since May 8.
>>10175295Depends what kind shipping you picked
>>10175295The cheap shipping options usually only track while they're still in China
Has anyone here ordered from Anogol store or charisma fashion wig store? I'm thinking of ordering a wig from one of them but I'm worried about the cap size being too small
>>10175335>>10175309I just got AliExpress Standard Shipping. Ordered on April 24th and shipment started on May 4th. I need this stuff to come by June 9th. I think estimated shipping time was 25 days. Guess I'll just wait but it's just weird how there's no tracking info.
>>10173865I'm a sasquatch and found some cute shoes on there that fit nicely. What kind of shoes are you looking for, anon?
I ordered something on April 13th and the shipping page hasn't moved from this status and the tracking number they provided doesn't show anything. When is it appropriate to start panicking?
>>10175649You can try to contact the seller, but if you don't have your order after 60 days it's really easy to get a refund
>>10175546never order with that close of a deadline, Always give yourself an extra 3 weeks
>>10175546Is that the upper limit? It might come just as you need it, or it might take a bit longer if it's stuck in customs or something.
