I bought $5 lolita shoes and in the SS confirmation pics they actually look pretty decent? I wonder if they'll break immediately upon wearing. Worth a shot I guess
I've been shopping waaaayyy too much. Just got this in the other week. I finally received the black x white dress and remember someone was asking about it. ITS SHINY AS FUCK. ITS PRACTICALLY SILK. DON'T BUY IT ITS HIDEOUS. AND ITS ALSO MASSIVE. The blouse is okay but is pretty cheap feeling/ average construction.
>>10206804And this is due to arrive next week sometime. >>10206784They aren't for dolls are they?? I'd love a link if it is for people! For $5 why not?
>>10206809They're for people. Here you go: https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=596637445633
I posted my haul in the mail thread some time ago ->>10198019Please let me know if you gulls would like any links or SS pics.So happy to see another Taobao thread! When I have more time I'll try to come back and post some finds.
Sorry if this is a stupid question but when I try to browse taobao stores it prompts me over and over to login, and if I dismiss the dialog it won't show me anything in the shop, just loads blank pages.
>>10206837Just make an account.
>>10206784these look decent? look horribly cheap and shitty to me.
>>10206837Unfortunately the only way to make that go away is to make an account.On the plus side, having an account means you can save items for later and track all the stores you like. Plus the main page will have a bunch of items suggested for you based on what you tend to like.
>>10206843That describes how most sweet lolita shoes look desu, so yeah.
has anyone tried doing the taobao forwarding service for international customers? how did it go?
>>10207231I forwarded to NZ and the only shipping option for me was weighed volumetric. So I ended up paying 9kgs shipping for something that weighed around 4kg. The service is pretty fast and I would have continued using it if there was other shipping options. I think for USA there are many cheaper options. But smaller countries its limited. I only forward through SS now cos I still prefer buying stuff myself.
>>10207231I do this (to the US), it's usually good although shipping can be slow. The JCEX option ships by a method that eventually is eventually delivered by UPS, but JCEX customer service is shit and they routinely overcharge. The other option (Zhangzhou Express I think? Something like that) has good customer service and a better fee schedule but they ship by whatever method is seasonally cheaper or more convenient for them in whatever way, so it could get transferred to USPS, Fedex, UPS, whatever. I recently used them to ship a parcel, they billed me for 9.3kg and when it arrived it was in fact 19lbs so that's extremely close.
Current order(s) at the moment. Had them split because some things are on preorder.
Anyone know where I can get a nice bright yellow blouse on taobao? I'm not handy with search terms.
>>10207793I recently ordered pic related from Dolly Delly, although it hasn’t arrived yet.黄色衬衫 Would be “yellow blouse” if that helps
>>10207847Oof that looks super cute, please do a short review when it arrives!
>>10207585Link to #1 and number #4 please?
Where can I get shoes like these for non-midgets? https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1-c.w4004-18449354857.6.3eb6222fKkftcI&id=547007723878https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1-c.w4004-18449354857.10.3eb6222fKkftcI&id=545208987810I would be a chink size 41-42

>>10206809Sauce on lucky packs? What are they for?
>>10206804can u do review / link pls on the eye glitters?
does anyone know what to do at this stage of shopping? It's arrived at warehouse. Do i need to do something?
>>10208247https://m.tb.cn/h.egFFAoZ?sm=feddd1Posting from mobile using Taobao app so I'm not if that link will work? But if you search Jill Leen they should come up. As for review, they burn my eyes about half as much as the LimeCrime glitters so that's nice. Dry down fine but could have a little more glitter in them. They're quite cheap though and the boxes are cute too! >>10208159【禹屋】https://m.tb.cn/h.egFCtdC?sm=d71894 again no idea if link will work but seller is Rain House. One is a pack for swimmer stuff I got some mirror compacts and compact lintel rollers which are kinda cute. Second one is a general on from RainHouse which j got some random phone cases (for apple so useless for me) but I got a bunch if their jewellery which made it worth it cos its normally around the price of the lucky pack each. Photo for QR if thats useful ?>>10206809Fucking SS left out half the eyeshadows.
>>10207847I'm always so pleasantly surprised with dolly + delly
>>10208643Oooooo tysm i will try them out!!
Any one have recs on where to find decent lacy lolita gloves?
>>10208643Where did you get the student council rings, please?
What’s a good search term for medical or menhera stuff? tryna get things to go with hospitality doll
Can gulls recommend any good shops for maid costumes? The ones in the spreadsheet don’t seem to have anything so great right now.
Are there any reviews of Red Maria? Im specifically interested in their tights but im a us10-12/uk14
>>10212030I'm a US 6-8 and their tights are super great! The printing is pretty crisp and they fit me super well. Does anyone know of any shops carrying halo/star crown headpieces? I know Sweet Dreamer used to have one but I can't seem to find it anymore.
Hoping some anon will help me, as I haven't placed a taobao order in years. I'm looking for the standard Meta stripper heels shoes at An Tai Na. They have so many freaking categories and I have no idea which one to look under. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance!
>>10211239I'd like to know as well, are there any that are super costumey?
>>10212030I own some Red Maria tights at size 14 and 180cm tall. They actually fit nicely and the print doesn't get washed out or distorted from the stretch!
>>10207852>>10207847This shirt arrived today and I’m happy with it. It’s decent quality, actually it’s basically identical to the picture. The fabric is comfortable and sturdy, the buttons are kinda awkward and there’s loose threads around the seams but it looks fine when worn, and doesn’t feel like it’ll fall apart.I will admit I’m not actually sure what I’ll wear this with since the bright yellow and big ruffles don’t go with much in my wardrobe, but I’m happy with it regardless- even though it’s a bit more expensive for a taobao blouse.
I'm looking to pad out my wardrobe with some lolita blouses of various colours (I mostly wear classic, so like white, beige, brown, wine, navy, dusty pink, etc.)does anyone know of a store offhand that sells decent blouses in a variety of colours? Infanta had a model of blouse in a gazillion colours back in the day and they don't stock them anymore. The only other place I've seen is Strawberry Witch and although I like some of their dresses their blouses really don't look that great in stock photos. Unless someone else has experience with them and they look ok?
>>10213843I'm sure you'll find something to wear it with - even plain black jeans would be ok.
does anyone know a chinese/taobao version of lacemarket? i was looking to buy more taobao stuff but there is barely any on LM
Asking here since I didn't wanna derail the bodyline thread, but are there any taobao shoes you swear by? I need something comfortable and durable and brand shoes have failed me
>>10213327>>10213534Do you gulls have any Mu Fish tights and do they also fit you well? Red Maria has such a limited selection
>>10214646A lot of people swear by An Tai Na's shoes.
>>10214646Seconding this, but also looking for more shoes that are original designs if possible. I'm trying to steer away from design replicas if I can.
>>10214646Empty Wardrobe is pretty nice. I've heard very good things about GSBS also but I haven't tried them. I think that both do original designs only.
>>10213522It would probably be under the "super high heel" category https://antaina-youyou.taobao.com/category-224781796.htm?spm=a1z10.3-c.w4010-2293493309.27.58da6dfecum7Wg&search=y&catName=%B3%AC%B8%DF%B8%FA%D0%AC12cm#bd
>>10214848I just ordered a pair of pink ones by An*Tai*Na to match with my AP dressAny shop recommendations on taobao for boleros or cardigans?
>>10216374Seconding this, need some boleros in jewel tones especially
>>10206779What’s the difference between taobao and aliexpress and why is taobao more liked even though the shipping costs is cruel? Is it because the shipping time is shorter? Redpill me
>>10216745Go to the stupid questions thread if you’re gonna ask stupid questions and not answer any here, dipshit
has anyone ever bought from this store before? I like the shoes and the prices but is it too good to be true? https://shop107567742.taobao.com/?spm=2013.1.1000126.3.2c32592fKjmr9KI bought £5 shoes on Taobao once and they were amazing, but the shop closed down so looking for a good alternative
>>10216749That’s right you autist, I won’t ever answer yours.
>>10216745Taobao is cheaper and you have more control over your shipping working with an SS than through Ali. I don't know where you live but shit on Ali gets shipped ages after orders or arrives 6 months later where I live. Just going through an SS using Taobao gives me more choice.Plus there's more stuff on Taobao than on Aliexpress.
Recent order. I feel so trashy buying the cat bra haha
>>10216921Wow wrong image I'm stupid.
>>10216924top left wig is so cute! can you link it and do you know how roomy they are? i have a big head
how safe would it be to try to order something custom made?how would I go about it? Just using a regular shopping service and putting my measurements in the notes?
>>10216939I'm afraid this is the first time I'm buying from the shop so I can't say yet, but I'll let you know when it arrives. For now, here's the link: https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=593157079449
there's an item I want that in the colors, there's:>a picture of it in white>a picture of it in orangeand then>白色版尾款>橙色版尾款the latter ones being ~5 dollars more expensive.any idea what it means?I've searched all dictionaries and whatnot and all I come up is >白色/橙色: the color>版: edition>尾款: something to do with "Balance of a payment settlement, generally small in amount." or "The last paragraph"
>>10217155Last payment paragraph usually means it was a deposit/ pre order item. So the page you're looking at is only taking payments from those who have already paid a deposit. If you post the link I can have a look?
>>10217183Huh. Then why do they have that, but also simply the pictures of the item as colorsways as well?https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1-c.w4004-11339264934.9.35a8a35aWNAp7y&id=25258000338
>>10217083If you use a forwarding service, message the seller first through Aliwangwang and double check what measurements they need. If you use regular SS just send them all the regular measurements like bust, waist, height etc in the notes. If it's something a bit more in depth than a blouse you'll probably want to check which measurements they need, but they usually tell the SS what they need after its purchased anyways.
>>10217187It looks like you have to pay the deposit first (¥180) then when its done you pay the tailing paragraph (¥205) It gives no indication on how long it takes though??
>>10217213I see. Don't know if I should risk it. still, thank you so much, anon.
>>10216921Do you have the link to this dress??
>>10216805You’re so autistic you don’t know the difference so
sorry if silly question but does anyone have an SS they swear by? i read the FAQ and everything and i'm still not sure how the entire process works nor which SS to pick...
>>10217515Superbuy for me
>>10217517I second this. They charge like 12 yuan (a couple dollars) as a fee if any. They reply really fast to messages and they’re quite kind. Never had any problems with them.
>>10216715Third! Someone please recommend some!
>>10217515>>10217517thank you for the recommendation! i really appreciate it. i was trying bhiner but was getting very frustrated (their website kept breaking for me?)i'll look into superbuy instead, apparently it's cheaper too lol
>>10217596ahh meant to reply to >>10217575 not myself oops!!
>>10217596Bhiner used to be widely used/known for getting cosplays from Love Live. After awhile they went downhill and I think their fees went up? SuperBuy even has a subreddit and they answer any questions there too. Not as fast in responses as their website but it’s always an option.
>>10217575I love Superbuy but this always makes me wonder. They charge super low or nonexistent service fees, so how do they afford to stay in business?
>>10217659they actually answer that exact question in their FAQ
Do sellers on taobao usually catch onto your shitty google translate chinese and cut you off for that or something?I wanted to ask one of them their estimated time it'll take to make a tailored clothing order but they say specifically in their main store page "not detailed communication is invalid" or something
>>10218159If you add you only speak English and are using a translator they usually understand. I've only had one seller say something that translated back as kinda snarky, but that could also have been Googles shitty translation. I think it would be fine for you to message them. The worst they could do is not respond, I guess?
>>10218159Every seller I've messaged has been super nice. I usually start with something along the lines of "Please excuse my strange language, I am using translation software". There are even a few who speak English.
>>10217649I tried to get Superbuy to help me buy a custom cosplay (~$650CAD) and they turned me down saying it's too expensive/risky. Was I doing something wrong? I ended up asking Bhiner to help me but it's been 3 weeks and they keep saying that the seller hasn't replied yet.Should I try Superbuy again?
>>10218348Theres limits with SS's
Sorry if this seems completely spoon feedy, but my relative is staying in china for a few months. Is there any taobao classics everyone likes that I can get?
>>10218394That's very generalized and unspecific anon. You're not even mentioning what styles you're into. Just look at the store spreadsheet and see what you like.
Anybody know of Taobao lolita brands with solid cotton main pieces?
>>10218430im sad dumbshit questions like this get answered like its the stupid questions thread. some of us need real help finding shit
>>10218497Not sure it these are cotton, but I did a quick searchvtyrough my saved stores and midfoot of them have a lot of cotton pieces currently. I got the links from the app, so apologies if it tries to send you through there. 【幻之翼原创设计】https://m.tb.cn/h.ehmJloQ?sm=bc47e3 【Tiny Garden 小花园】https://m.tb.cn/h.eSVAx45?sm=510ae1 【Fantasyland洋服店】https://m.tb.cn/h.eSVAAGH?sm=d59c74 【kidsyoyo lolita洋装】https://m.tb.cn/h.ehwpKLz?sm=3c33d2【+St.TearS+Gothic&Lolita学苑】https://m.tb.cn/h.eSVAC5d?sm=221358 【AmaStacia 星海辰花】https://m.tb.cn/h.eS4Z1wI?sm=41d25a Most of the usual stores have a single solid dress too. But its just a matter of sifting through stuff.
>>10220223And sorry for my auto correct which apparently does nothing.
>>10220223>>10220225Thank you so much anon! I only looked cursorily at all the stores in the spreadsheet, so this is a huge help.
>>10216745>Especially for stuff like Lolita, the people who make the clothes sell directly on Taobao, but only through resellers on Aliexpress. If you use a shopping service, you can also combine all your orders instead of receiving a ton of single parcels.
>>10217515I use 42agent (used to be Taobaoring). Have never had any problems.
>>10220223any good boleros there?
Buying some bags and at the risk of sounding like a fool, was wondering if anyone could confirm what "补邮费补差价一元万能拍" means? Assume it's something about combining postage but would rather double check as translators are still leaving me with a question mark over my head.
Forgive me for not being knowledgable on lolita, I was only looking for dresses for everyday wear; but is this a replica of something? I thought it was cute but then found pretty much the same dress being sold by multiple stores.
>>10220445Not really, I think the Fantasyland store had maybe 2? But nothing particularly stood out for me.. I am also looking for a good bolero.>>102204891 Yuan make up difference or something? I think what it is they use it if there is any excess to pay, so if you buy a ton from their store and need to pay more postage, they will ask you to purchase X amount of the 1 Yuan listing to make up the extra that needs to be paid.
>>10220768it's because they are all reselling it.
I’ve got a few things coming, but I’m most excited about this.
Any search terms for more elaborate lingerie sets? Specifically I'd like to find something like this.
>lolita>cheapest/most affordable>basic>casual/classic>beige, white, golden>one piece>chiffon, flowy textures>nothing with too revealing/too low collarsAny dress/store you gulls could recommend off the top off your head with these specifics? Sorry for asking to be spoofed. It's a combination of being a newbie (to lolita, not taobao and all) and being indecisive to the point I'd rather have somebody make a decision for me. Thank you!

Stupid question but can you order from taobao when you live in japan?
>>10225757depends on the seller, you can message them and askor use a shopping service
>>10225757you will need a shopping service for anywhere outside of china
Are there any shops that do jewellery that's similar to Q-Pot? Like cakes, biscuits etc.
So i ordered wigs from taobao and the package arrived some days ago at the local customs and they couldn't gave me the package because it had no label where the name of the manufacturer and the material it was made of was written and thus will be send back to china. I contacted the shopping service site and they only answered that they could try to ship it with another method. I'm thinking of doing a refund but the site mentions in their policy that they don't do such things. Would it still possible to do it, i mean even if they shipped it with another method it wouldn't gurantee that next time it wont get stuck at customs again, it would be kinda like a vicious circle and i probably won't get the package. So how big are my chances?

>>10227921I did but they only said okay and that i should try another shipping method. I just don't want to spent much money on shipping again and again for some cheap chinese wigs because then overall it wouldn't be worth it
>>10226778You are a darling!! Thank you!
>>10228056aren’t u just answering your own question at this point
Any recommendations where I could find wigs, preferably loltia or fashion wigs, with nets that fit heads bigger than your average female east asian head? Only shop I have positive experience with is CC kids, but their product stock is very limited and rarely sees any restock or addition of new products.
>>10206804>>10206809Right, I am banning myself until 11.11 after this order cos I clearly lack self control. The last lot of make up was really pretty, so I thought I would try some more. If anyone wants any links just let me know.. can do reviews when it comes in too!
>>10228202I'm interested as well, particularly in lace fronts, people have been telling me that stores like wigisfashion are taobao resellers but nobody could point me to where they get their stock from and most asian wigs are too small for me
>>10207585link for #2 please
>>10206809>For $5 why not?Because it's literally trash. You are shipping trash to you and will throw it away after a few wears. Why don't you set a forest on fire while you're at it.
>>10228255Link for that bulba figure? It looks adorable.
has anybody seen shoes on taobao that are similar/design replicas to jetj or jm ones?
Is there a secret to finding Nintendo cosplay? I'm trying to find some BoTW cosplay and it feels like I've tried every Chinese variant of the word "Zelda" to no avail. There are a handful of costumes that pop up but they're from other games and look a bit shitty. Are there really no Zelda cosplays on Taobao or are they hidden behind some other term so they aren't hit with a cease and desist?
>>10228961Have you tried searching for “breath of the wild” instead?
>>10216924Those backpacks are cute! Can you post a review once you get them?
>>10228982I did indeed, it only leads to the games/handbooks/knockoff merch.
>>10228733Calm yourself, Anon. Have you seen how much plastic and throw away shit every Taobao order contains? Stop shopping online fullstop if you're truly that worried about the environment.>>10228857https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z09.2.0.0.347a2e8dIPvdTw&id=586237160300&_u=q208vds0daceI doubt its genuine, but he was just so cute!
>>10221417I'm getting it too, anon! Quite hype.
>>10221417Also getting it. My body is ready.
>>10229385>>10229196 Are you both getting the bonnets? I’m a little worried about how a bonnet is going to look on me, but it seemed like a decent price, so I went for it.
>>10229548I already have a black bonnet that I like, but I'll put some stained glass window things in it for balance. They did look cute, though. I almost went for the cage styled one.
>>10229548I'm not, I have other headdresses I can wear with it. The cage one was cool but the other one looked kind of bland so I didn't really see the point.
>>10229191Ah yes, if you're making a little bit trash you might as well make tons of trash since nothing bad happened yet to me personally! Literally climate change denial logic
>>10226462File a PayPal claim because you never received your order
>>10229610100 corporations release around 71% of all emissions, the US military burns near 300,000 barrels of oil a day and you think some girl buying shoes on taobao is worth this much energy? Okay
>>10206826Can I get links to: first row, fourth picsecond row, fifth picthird row, fifth pic ?
>>10229674Yeah I think those corporations can still exist because of people like you

Current order. Doing a sort of prep for the early year next year.
any recs for cute aprons/over skirts?
Anyone bought [spoiler]Danganronpa[/spoiler] cosplay gear on Taobao before? I wanted to do a basic bitch Komaeda cosplay for [spoiler]CRX[/spoiler] but my only Chinese weeb friend just broke her ankle and I don't wanna bug her about buying stuff on Taobao.
>>10206804I was the one who asked about the black and white dress, thanks for the warning!!
>>10228255Could I have a link to the store the necklace is from?
Are there any taobao brands which regularly release cotton lolita items? I don't really want to buy polyester for my cheaper daily clothes.
>>10231802There are a few.. Sibyl Heisei and Dream Magical both do cotton releases at least half the time. A lot of taobao brands are moving away from poly and towards bamboo-based fabrics, but I haven't seen much move towards using cotton.
Which are the best RHS available now? I've finally come to terms with my Bodyline ones being too small.
Could anyone please help me determine if this>我只知道是混纺的哦 亲Gives any indication as to what this shirt is made of?https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=591922412445I asked my proxy to check with the store and they only came back with this, and the seller didnt seem to know what materials it was made of

But that would only be a guess from me.
>>10231994>Probably cotton polyester blendI thought the same thing. Just trying to avoid something thats all polyester, thanks though. Cute keyboard
>>10231832I don't have any RHS myself, but I've heard lots of good things about Antaina and SosicShop
I know I sound super stupid but I'm probably looking in the wrong place, are there any good shops that sell (preferably nonprinted) lolita socks/tights in sax? Most places I look only have black, white, and off white
>>10231994ooo i kind of want to try that.. did you buy the tools in this listing too? i dont know anything bt felting so idk which tools are needed..https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=556466011296
>>10232074I did! But I bought heaps in the store and also got a bunch included, so not sure if there sare tools included with every purchase or were a gift cos I bought a few things?I found that the ones in he listing were helpful though - I held 4 needles at once (probably dangerous asf) but I got the whole kitty finished in less than 2 hours!!Its quite therapeutic.. stabbing something over and over again to release anger hahaha
>>10232009Neither of them seem to have RHS right now
i have been try to reverse image search this from chinese lolita updates with no luck. it's from a shop called "orange cream cat" but also no luck. any help? thanks!

The BL replicas are decent, just recieved 4 pairs!
>>10233023>>10233016 here. Care to share some pics? I'd like to buy a couple of pairs some time soon.
Anyone have any recommendations for oldschool-style lace-topped OTK socks?
>>10232990Nayrt, but you are literally in a thread dedicated to buying cheap shit. Most of your "branded" items will be made in the exact same factories. ANYTHING COMING OUT OF CHINA WILL BE MADE IN THESE FACTORIES.Unless you are wearing a damn dress made of flax, chances are whatever you have on is killing the planet too some way or another. Now post your damn cheap shit you found on Taobao and want to share,or kindly fuck off.
Just realized I didn't number two things in the image.>>10228679https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=585637463949

How much cheaper is it to buy straight from taobao compared to ordering from places like lolitawardrobe/mylolitadress?
>>10233254Heres a direct link to a search under a categoryhttps://s.taobao.com/search?q=%E9%87%91%E5%B1%9E%E8%BE%B9%E6%A1%86&imgfile=&js=1&stats_click=search_radio_all%253A1&initiative_id=staobaoz_20190801&ie=utf8&cps=yes&cat=1705But you could try 金属边框 or 金属边框件滴胶 in search and sift through stuff!>>10233296In some cases, I have seen dresses as much as $80USD more expensive on these websites as compared to buying direct from Taobao. Sometimes its only $20 or so and I guess it comes down to convenience vs. price.
Everything in this order came two weeks ago so if ya'll want links or recommendations. Feel free.Unlike all the $10 wings on ebay, the ones I bought for $15 don't have that shitty cardboard shadow you can see against the wings the moment you walk into any light source.
>>10233329Requesting pink shoes, socks in bottom left corner and wings

>>10233329Are the bows of the pink shoes deatachable?And how is that petticoat?
>>10233574>SosicShopWelp. The biggest shoes they have are one size too small for me. I need 265 or 43.
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=190375331 these RHS seem to be real wood and leather. Can anyone confirm?
>>10233353Not the OP but bought the shoes for myself in my last order.https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=558344085034
Does anyone have cute accessory recommendations that are Halloweeny? Pumpkins/ghosts/skeletons/witches or anything purple/black/orange. I'm ready to start hoarding in preparation for October.

It's very easy to adjust and if any tall lolitas needed a plain white underskirt it would probably suffice since the lace all around it it a nice quality and doesn't look out of place under some of my more classic dresses. >>10233372 Petticoat: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=522767622915It's like a hoopskirt but each section between the hoops has organza/lace over it to stop the hoop outline.

Any stores that have AP style cutsews? Both the fancy ones and the ones that are just a graphic T-Shirt with slightly poofy sleeves.
>>10233727I'm also looking for bat and ghost accessory!
>>10233804How's the sizing?
>>10233622Lolita Lola do (or did) make kid leather and wood RHS. I think the white version was fake leather, but still real wood. But I don't think they've actually been available for several years now. They used to do rounds of preorders.
There's tons of china style dresses, but does anyone have any links to blouses? Preferrably in pastel colours.
>>10234025Seconding this, I love sweet cutsews.
Latest haul. Most of the order is mine but the sweet stuff is a friend's. Spent much more than I'd like to admit on this one.
>>10233162I don't buy shit from China, I'm just here to laugh at your ugly purchases.
>>10235016good for you but nobody cares

>>10235052That wasn't me, I'm a different anon
Hey guys, what's the search term for off shoulder shirt or does anyone have links to nice off shoulder tops? The one that was linked earlier was pretty good but I'd prefer one without the silver stripes and possibly more lace.
Anyone know where these shoes are from?
Does anyone know what happened to To Alice? I tried going to their Taobao site, and it seemed to be gone?
>>10235732Oh, wait. I guess the link changed? My bad.
>>10235615what’s this, a pic for ants?
>>10235732they have their own website now
>>10206837so i have an account and i'm logged in and i'm still experiencing the same issue as this anon where stores just don't load. i'll put something into the search bar and nothing loads. i've cleared my cache and everything else, and tried different browsers too and still nothing?
>>10236020Disable your adblocker
>>10231818That sounds interesting though wish Pandas can use that more than I do.
Does anyone have any links for diamond socks or tights that look like AatP ones? Specifically looking for black x red, black x gold or red x gold.
Has anyone found cutsews on taobao?
>>10235008oooo links to the bear ears and 3rd row right most dress
>>10234163The sizing is the same from what I can tell. My Bodyline RHS are a size 41 and the Taobao RHS are a size 42 (I'm a size 41 for reference). I'd recommend going a size larger since the shoes that are my exact size are on the smaller side.
what’s a good search term for medical or menhera stuff? trying to look for some headwear to go with this set (I know rainies is selling the cap but I don’t want to support her)
>>10236504Isn't she selling it without the clip anyway, making it basically worthless?
>>10236637it was gemgem, looks like it actually sold for a comfy $34 usd, so fat L for whoever bought that
>>10236504Why didn't you try searching literally nurse lolita in chinese? https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=2013.1.w4004-9092169120.22.626afaf0oG5Jcv&id=555800918921https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.188.8.131.52c2b2746JHLFKo&id=542680495568
Is anyone else having problems with search? No matter what I put in the search bar, it keeps infinitely loading, so I'm not sure if it's down for everyone or just me.
>>10237013thanks for the links! but searching nurse lolita in chinese gives me a whole lot of pic related, is there a better way of doing it?
>>10237069Try just lolita instead of the chinese spelling, lots of lolita listings i've seen seem to have that.
>>10237026disable the adblocker
any idea how to say something like "hot pink" in chinese?Alternatively/additionaly, any recs for stores to get simple wigs for cosplay?

Small accessory order. Octopus ring sold out by the time SS put in the order.
>>10236280Mufish has harlequin socks
The sheet confuses me. What is the best reliable shopping service for poor people? I also need to use PayPal cuz I don't have a credit card due to my low income.
>>10237417There really isn't a term for hot pink, it's all just 粉. For wigs I recommend https://7cos.taobao.com/ as they have lots of mix+match hair pieces.
Does anyone know where I can find more of these? I used to have a link bookmarked but it went down. I'm scared of accidentally buying one with real fur and I really don't wanna do that. It's a rabbit plush keychain thing.
>>10235008Link and review for the blonde wig?
Does anyone own a longer petty from Aurora Ariel? But I'm unsure about what length I need for my tea length OP and skirt. The petty is 60cm, the skirt I have is 77cm (incl. waistband that is at least 5cm long) and the OP is 116cm total length (high waisted cut). I have no idea if the petty is too short for that. Should I just go for it?
For gulls in the US, has anyone gotten hit with tariffs from these trade wars?
>>10208072You can get shoes like these in much better quality from western sellers super easily. Try being less racist next time you ask for help.
>>10233329What size did you order the angel wings in and how do they compare to your body size?
>>10214847I had one pair of mu fish tights and at a uk14 they fit my legs very well and didn't get distorted from the stretch, but the waist/hip part was much smaller by comparison and was too tight for me. Other pairs could be different though.
>>10232988ik that they do it to fuel their own SS but the way chinese lolita updates refuses to give out links is shitty imo
>>10238884Just got my package yesterday with no problems in CA.
Does anyone have links to lacy/sheer overskirts? Preferably in white, pink or lavender. Found a Chess Story one but was wondering where I could find more, especially those that are more open on the front.
Anybody able to figure out how many sheets are included in one order? https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.184.108.40.206153f59w51N8L&id=537767963455&ns=1&abbucket=2#detail
>>10238757毛绒 兔子 钥匙扣 brings up a few, but going through it they all seem to be either mink or rex rabbit fur.You'd probably be better off trying Ali Express or local dollar stores as theyre quite popular now?>>10238879I own it and for the record, I was very disappointed in the quality. I think it may also be a bit short for what your after. I also got it for tea length dresses and it just doesnt sit right on most of them. I ended up getting an underskirt from SweetDreamer, and while not as poofy, it sits much nicer.
>>10239069going from the price, it looks like just one.
>>10239270Thank you, I'll take a look at the one from sweet dreamer.
Put a deposit down for something from ToAlice / Tomybear with taobao direct. How do I pay the rest now?
>>10239513They should have the option on the listing to pay the resr
looking to buy a dreamholic wig but I can't tell what colour 姬胡桃 is. google translates it to ji hutao but that doesn't really help. what colour is this??? thanks so much in advance <3
Does anyone know any links to buy Gyaru clothing? Like MA*RS or d.i.a type clothing.
Anybody bought any solid-colored JSKs or skirts recently that they could recommend? I'd like some sturdy, solid basics to pad out my wardrobe a bit.
>>10235008got links for the hime blouse and the brown headpiece?
Does anyone know what the search terms would be or any stores that would stock Renaissance festival or victorian type outfits? I tried a few but I only got the really bad wish premade stuff to come up.
Does anyone have a favorite princess sleeve blouse to recommend?
>>10239764Usually you just have to type in the brand name and see what pops up.
>>10238879I own that petticoat and it works perfectly under a 100cm JSK and a 107cm OP. I imagine it would still work with your stuff, you might just have to wear it a little lower than your natural waistline.Also, unlike >>10239270 I'm pretty pleased with mine. I will say that my dresses are heavier velvet dresses so the petti is pushed down a bit. It might be a bit too poofy for lighter dresses (unless you want that) but I think A&A also has a smaller poof petti in the same length.
So I tried making a cosplay order in time for a con using Taobao direct, but with some things like a swimsuit cosplay being "abnormal" and other things taking way longer than stated, I'm reaching the end of the warehouse period and at this point I just want to forget that this order ever happened. I've given up on this order coming in at all t b h, but jw does anyone know what to do for future "abnormal" orders? Otherwise, time to just stick to Aliexpress / SS markup so I don't have to deal with this crap again.
>>10240111I just contact customer service for whichever warehouse I used, they've always been able to sort it out. There's a chat feature on the shipping page. They'll tell you what's wrong and give you some options. You can copy and paste between google translate if you don't know Chinese. If all else fails, they'll give you the option to send the abnormal order back to the seller or ship it somewhere inside China. If you choose the latter option, you can ship it to some SS with a mail forwarding option, such as Bhiner. There are a lot of reasons why an order can be "abnormal", you might want to check the official rules.
i think using lolitawardrobe is cheating, but finally this order is coming home. my first lolita coord. (yeah, i know here is no socks or headpiece... i'll figure for those two.)
>>10240241curious why did u get a white petti, not black?
>>10240263because i'm an idiot and the moment i ordered i didn't realize that a black petti would have fitted more. oh well, it can be always useful for future coords.
>>10240263>>10240282Tbh the petticoat colour really doesn't matter that much. White is better is you plan on wearing other colours, bc black might show through some fabrics, like if you wear a lighter coloured chiffon dress, or anything in white. The occasional peek is fne if you're sitting down or crouching to do up a shoe or something, it's not supposed to show all the time anyway.I would only get black if you plan on wearing black exclusively (which might not always work out - you might just fall in love with other colours).
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=585572746780Does anyone know the difference between the two options on these socks? Is it just the length?>>10239270Thanks for the tip. I think I'll just check locally like you say.
off topic (?) just saw these screenshots floating around and wanted to share
>>10240846This is so incredibly stupid. But then again if people are actually dumb enough to pay for that, props to them for getting free money.

Like ok I can see some sort of value to offering "searching" services to find a specific product because if you want something super specific, if it even exists, can take a while to find. But this? lmao.
>>10240846isn't this like...against patreon's TOS? isn't patreon a content subscription service for content created by users? hiding a link to someone else's product behind a paywall isn't a creative work

anyone know what dress this is?

Can anyone recommend me good bloomers and/or cardigans? I want to keep warm this winter :) Thanks in advance!
Sorry for the dumb question, but I just noticed something while looking at Dreamholic's store. How does this girls wig manage to look so natural on her? I only own one wig - from a different store https://phoenixiaoio.taobao.com/ - and when I put it on it feels like it makes my head look too large. Maybe it's just my imagination though.
>>10241562Oh, yeah that's from Brightlele sorry.
>>10241559Is your head larger than an average asian one? Does your wig flatter your head shape?
>>10241565Oh sorry meant they photoshopped the model lol
>>10241581I'm dumb, I see that now>>10241580Yeah it will be. I don't know how to tell head shape - unless you meant face shape - or that wigs were fitted for different head shapes.
>>10241331I like https://shop60113340.taobao.com for bloomers
So on devilinspired there's this adorable OP I've been looking at called Witch's Praise OP by Laplacian Witch and although I found their weibo here https://www.weibo.com/p/1005056283209350/home?from=page_100505&mod=TAB&pids=plc_main#placeI can't actually find the shop? It isn't listed anywhere on their page, and taobao search results brought up nothing. Is there something I'm missing?

Dipping my toe (ha!) in high heels, plus some boots for winter.
>>10241747Nice shoe haul!Can I have a link for the boots on the bottom right please?

>>10241747Did these come in? If so, would you mind reviewing the boots?
Quick question for those of you who make jewelry or other diys: is it cheaper to order bulk from taobao but have to pay a SS etc., or should I just buy from aliexpress instead?
When you pay a deposit for, let say a dress, does the SS keep track of when to pay the rest, or is it my own responsibility? Thought I'd try Superbuy this time, but now I'm unsure of how this works...
This is a very weird request but does anyone know what search terms to use to find those realistic fish bags and pencil cases that were popular a while ago? I need the bag for a cosplay but the pencil case would work as well.
Anyone knows other stores that sell clothes of the same type dollydelly sells? Like it's lolita but also cute clothes good enough to be used casually too
>>10241883I've been using superbuy for years. It's a bit difficult with them and I haven't actually done any deposit-first-balance-later purchases, but I know that a few times I've preordered items and the seller hasn't shipped (because they're still being made) Superbuy messages them automatically asking for when they're going to be shipped then seeks a refund after like 2 or 3 weeks.What I would recommend doing is contacting their live chat customer service and explaining how you want to go about purchasing this item (i.e paying deposit now and the rest in x weeks when its ready) and making sure that's okay. They'll probably say 'yes just leave a note when you place the order'. What you will probably have to do is place the order for the deposit link and leave a note with it saying 'this is for a preorder, i will pay the rest of the price when the item is ready' or something like that, and if they try and message the seller asking when it will ship you'll have to go onto their livechat customer service and explain, and ask them to put a note on the order so that they don't annoy the seller.From there you'll probably have to pay the balance manually, so for example if you make a 50rmb order now for the deposit link now then in 3 weeks time you'll place a 250rmb order for the remaining amount.Sorry that I waffled quite a bit. Superbuy are good and I've only had one kind of negative experience with them due to a seller refusing to sell to proxies, you just have to get around the language barrier by talking to them on live chat. You can also use Ytaopal if you need someone with better English, but they're quite a bit more expensive. Good customer service again though. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything
What do I do when I can't choose a wig and I only want to buy one
>>10241747>https://shop60113340.taobao.comLink to bottom left? very cute!I'm interested in a review of the boots as well~

Can someone recommend a shop that sells Victorian Maiden-inspired coats? I am not looking for absolute replicas, a similar style is more than enough.
Made a little order for my cosplay stuff and ended up making a DIY order for my custom obitsuroid as well.Got a "china version" nendoroid of that green haired dude because his hair sculpt is perfect for what I need and I wasn't about to pay legit prices just for the hair.

>>10216924Wtf. I swear I have that exact pair of cat ears in the third picture from etsy. The seller must have bought them off Tao and just glued them to a headband so they could call it handmade.
