>>10553606Starting off, they finally opened preorders for these shoes and I am screaming because all SS are closed for CNYI will pay a Chinese anon and risk being scammed for them to preorder them for mehttps://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a210c.184.108.40.206791deboPcnyE&id=571701335083
>>10553608Where are you located, anon? My personal SS is still working through the holidays
>>10553629Canada.Would you know by chance why I can't make a deposit directly? (It's my first time doing a deposit on TB)
>>10553608Is chinese lolita updates open? I know shes pricier but I just contacted her today with a question and she responded
I usually don't like plush bags, or lolita plushies in general but I feel awful for loving this lol
>>10553868It's weird and deformed but still less creepy than rushton dolls.
Has anyone here done Taobao pre order before? I bought one for the first time with an ambitious production timeline (pre-order closed in late January with a projected early February ship date) and most other reservations appear to have a 3-4 month production timeline. Is this common? The brand is Magic Tea Party. Unsure if anyone else has experienced this before, and if I can hope that they will meet the timeline.
Does anybody know what the taobao link is for the sock brand Rozen Maiden? I saw them on devilinspired but I'm having trouble finding the link.
>>10554942see the last thread >>10548459
Any idea where to find Dark Academia pieces like this? I found this set on etsy but I assume it's from taobao or Ali.
>>10555230Nevermind I should have trusted more in Taobao image search. I already found the skirt:https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.999.13.4888523cdoi8Ey&id=628022651389&ns=1#detail
What should I get on this pic? I need cute clothes ASAP.
>>10553966I've done preorders from Alice Girl, Yupbro and Hinana Queena. Only Alice Girl was on time with fulfilling the order when they said they would. Hinana Queena was probably the worst since they themselves set a date for when orders would be ready but my SS didn't receive the dress until 3 weeks after that.
Does anyone know a store that sells cutsews similar to the ones AP puts out? Taobao blouses and cutsews always have that taobao “look” that I can’t put my finger on and I really just want some basics for my casual days.
>>10556554this isnt exactly what you're looking for but it's a similar sleeve style/aesthetic. It's nice in person too, glittery.https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=601479606198&spm=1101.1101.N.N.9342677It's definitely hard to avoid the taobao look though. I haven't been able to find cutsews like that before, hopefully there are some! :)
I haven't been on TaoBao in a while now, I used to spend hours building up wishlists, but now I'm not able to get the fucking website to load AT ALL. When I try to use the desktop website it tries to force me to log in (but then just gives me errors when I try to log in???) and when I go to a store and try to view all products it just brings up the log in pop up and then shows a blank page. Someone has mentioned that they intentionally make their desktop site worthless to force people to use their shitty app instead, but even when I downloaded the app on my phone it's completely unusable because it constantly brings up the "we detected unusual traffic bla bla bla" shit and wants me to swipe, but then I just get an error every time I swipe. I literally can't find a single way to browse TaoBao and it's pissing me the fuck off, I just want to drop my tax refund on a bunch of cute clothes. If anyone has a solution I will love you forever. I just want to feed my shopping addiction, damn it
Bought a bunch of blouses for work, ordered direct through Taobao to NZ and received in 8 days!
Has anyone find the way to fix the unusual traffic bug? I don't have any other taobao tabs over, cleared cache, turned off translation. Nothing. I don't use a VPN either.
>>10555440>YupbroWhich of their pieces did you preorder? I've been curious about the quality of their sakura JSK.
>>10556951Same re: the website. My account got banned for some reason (maybe because I used a burner phone line?) so now I can't log in on the website. The app still works for me for some reason but I hate browsing on the app, I want to use my computer so I can have multiple tabs open. Prob gonna have to make another account.
>>10557260I got the Sakura dress. It's nice for what I paid! I love the embroidery and the fabric/lace is good quality. I got the white JSK and it is accurate to the sales photos. My only issues with it are the pen marks I discovered all over the pintucks (hopefully will come out when I wash it) and the lining only goes halfway down the skirt. It's also a little tight around my chest even though my measurements fall squarely within the numbers on the sales page. But overall it's nicer than most of the other Taobao pieces I own.
>account got frozen>can't register a new account because I only got one phone numberWell shit, am I shit out of luck with this?
>>10557850There's free burner phone-number apps like TextNow
>>10553606Does anyone have any hot pink headbow recommendations? Having a hard time finding anything than peachy-pink or baby pink.
>>10557910Not exactly hot pink but these could work depending on the exact color you're looking for.
>>10557220Oh wow that's really fast, which shipping service did you pick? I'm in NZ too and I've never gotten packages that quickly
Does anyone have the shop link for Icing Utopia?
>>10558243samefag, I did some searching and found it https://iulolita.taobao.com/
>>10557947Thank you so much for the recommendations!
>>10554429Maybe try reverse image searching the stock photo to see if any shops show up?
>>10557239sometimes taobao is just an ass to everyone, don't think too much about it if it's gone next day, instead of investing in better servers they just flood everyone with that error
Weird question: has anyone ever gotten a taobao SS to order stuff from Chinese stores/websites other than taobao?
>>1055829642agent but then again their service expansion was the reason for why they changed their name from taobaoring in the first place.
>>10558298Awesome, thank you!
>>10557220Link to black headbow
>>10558188I just went with 4PX and it was sent by their expedited option. It was actually faster than when I go through an agent and use EMS, was the same around Christmas time too!>>10558313https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z09.2.0.0.35a92e8dJIENJg&id=622977569992&_u=g208vds08d15Just a heads up, the overall quality is fine (especially for the price) but the outter lace is raschel lace, so just a warning if thats not your thing!
Moving to Portland in a couple of months. Any links to good raincoats?
>>10557220link to gingham blouses? I've tried image search.
>>10556554>>10556876I wish cutsews were more frequently sold on taobao and second hand sites than they actually are. I think they’re so underrated
Has anyone seen any loliable short puffer jackets that come in black? I've only found them in sweet colors previously.
I can't find a pic right now but does anyone have a link to those cardigans with cute colors? They have a ruffle collar design I believe. If you have any in mind I would appreciate it too. I need some that are 100cm bust.
>>10558762They're from little dipper theyre awesome I>>10558762 own 8
>>10555438May I have links to the grey dress on top and the brown and red one on the second row please? They're all op cute tho!!!

Any reviews of Dalaohome wigs from semi-big head anons? Also how's the thickness?
>>10558749https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z09.2.0.0.72fd2e8dulyJ75&id=615918342822&_u=h208vds07d7f>>10559103I feel like I have a fat bobble head, and also waist length hair I had to stuff under it. They were okay for me on the hooks on the largest loops. Didn't give me a headache. I think they are pretty full for how cheap they are.. but obviously they are never as nicely styled as they are in the photos, I did have to straighten some of mine and they withstood the hair straightener on 180c which also surprised me!
>>10555438get the checkered jumperskirts and the pink cardigan. (bias)
alright anons, getting into sweet lolita from classic. Anyone have any all time favourite sweet taobao purchases?
>>10559556literally that is 90% of most lolita on taobao so just pick a store from the shopping spreadsheet
Seems like most agents are back again.
I really want to buy a cutesy aesthetic camera strap and bag for my new sony camera I bought. Anyone know of any shops that make things like straps, bags, etc? I tried looking around and everything seemed pretty ugly or stole trademarked characters.
Probably should have ordered this a while ago but hey, where I live it'll be winter for at least another 2 months. Buying some xianyu and DIY stuff too but it's all standard laces.taobao stuff so didn't add it to the collage.
>>10559103>>10559136I was just going to ask about Dalao Home! Thank you for the answer. I don't have a big head but I get headaches easily, so I have to be careful about my wigs.Anyone order from Vanyar Wigs recently? I was looking at their longer styles but they seemed a tad shiny.
any stores that sell basic unprinted headbows?

I've looked through the usual mu-fish etc. for interesting crew sock designs and I can't seem to find any? Am I just blind? We're going into spring so I thought they'd start popping up.Recs appreciated, looking for things less on the super sweet side.>>10561127Link for the Napoleon/royal looking socks?
Help a gull out, please. Someome, anyone! Its getting under my skin that I can't locate this shop. I must have this bear salopette塑料猫Plastic_Kitty. Google images and taobao image search gives me nothing.

Annoyed that people's SAL order to the same country has taken 12 days, while mine has been 17+ days and nothing has been sent. I'm so annoyed, I have no patience
I'm looking for the apron in the picture for some lax housework days and aesthetic cord photos. I thought ZJ story was the only maker of it but I'm wondering if they just resold a pre-existing one since pic on left turned up on Mercari with tags for Amavel. Any gulls know anything?
>>10562181I should mention that this photo the Mercari seller had made me think that since the Alice 2.0 series has no black dresses.
Anyone know where these are from? The seller listed them as chinese indie taobao
>>10562905Anon, it says the name on them, it’s by Dreamy Planet

Where do you all like to get your wrist cuffs from? I like Haruhi Clover but I do not like international shipping costing more than the items themselves.

Leaving here because I remember some anon looking for lolita-inspired roomwearhttps://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=638873127330
Anyone have any good recs for old school blouses on taobao? Like the old cotton baby blouses with large collars, puff sleeves and torchon lace?
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=521591851855Is this item a baby replica? I can't find anything similar to the babydoll dresses that is not a replica.
>>10564060I can't find anything either.
>>10564329how are you even asking this? it's a complete replicajust save up for the actual thing since you're literally searching for a replica of it
>>10563197thanks! (otk anon)

what's the sizing on those little dipper cardigans? there's a general size and large, I have a 97 cm bust. I don't want it to be too tight and cut under my arms or bunch up weird, but I also don't want it to be super oversized. what do, gulls?
How long does eyoubao take to arrive? Is it like aliexpress epackets where it takes around a month.
>>10565689it's basicly small parcel ems, in pre-corona times it took like a week, but now it takes about a month
>>10564060Taobao brands don't make those.
>>10565625Anon I have two of these and a 96 cm bust. Get the small. The large is for VERY VERY large busts. I have a small and it fits me perfectly, is probably even a bit big (which is good for layering)
>>10564060I have this in my favourites which is the closest I have seen??https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z0k.7385961.1997985097.d4918997.26d0726bei35Js&id=629610675672&_u=t2dmg8j26111
>>10565747NTA Damn I wish this had cotton lace, my kingdom for a goddamn cotton blouse with cotton lace.
Any brands like swimmer out there? I'm thinking accessories, home stuff, stationary, etc. Taobao or otherwise, I dunno
>>10565777Why not just buy from Swimmer (https://item.rakuten.co.jp/pattys7/c/0000000424/)? The brands by former Swimmer designers would be Domiel (https://item.rakuten.co.jp/olivegirls/c/0000000656/), Ma Cocotte (https://macocotte.handcrafted.jp/), and Twinkle Etoile (https://xxmikurouxx.thebase.in/).
Any tips on browsing Xianyu for lolita?I usually just type in brand names in English and look through like 100+ listings.. not the most efficient way to shop imoAny suggestions are welcome!
>>10565979thank you so much! I didn't know these brands existed- I'm much rather support the official designers, even if the shipping costs more, than buy from taobao!does anyone have resin craft suggestions? I want cute silicone molds, and I need resin itself. I have glitter, flowers, etc. Looking for a bear, unicorn, heart, flower, etc. shapes <3
Anyone have the link for popxparade shop? I can't find it for some reason
Wanted to try buying directly from Taobao since they can ship to my country but I'm getting cockblocked by this constant 对不起,系统异常,请稍候再试 ("sorry, service is busy") error every time I try to purchase the stuff in my cart. Tried canceling the order and purchasing again, and even tried with just one item, but no luck. Am I going to have to stick with shopping through a service?
>>10567305>>10568634Used to really like them but they're doing straight up AP replicas/ripoffs now and I can't support that. Shame.
>>10568634...oh it's not taobao after all? That explains why I couldn't find it lol. TY!
Any good stores for themed phone charms? Looking to stack up on a bunch and imitate gyaru
Anyone with a shop link? Reverse google search did nothing for me.
>>10569175Don't buy it; it's ugly af

Does anyone have some shop links for larme that carry plus sizes?
>>10569523I bought it. Satan-kun is coming home to me whether you like it or not.
pretty big order. mostly blouses, but a few OPs. One of them is velvet so that's cool. Hopefully the quality is decent. Everything but the socks and RHS are plus sized. Sorry there's so much in one picture. I didn't feel like making two!
Does anyone know what happened to Hinana Queena? I'm interested in buying pic related but there Taobao link is dead, I found there preorder page but that's no use. I see Clobba has a order page for it, but I was wondering where I could buy it directly from Hinana.
>>10570592This is the pic related dress, oops
>>10570566Link to bunny sailor cutsew and "can i kill you" shirts in bottom left?
>>10570592Sometimes taobao pages just go down, or if they don't have any stock they'll go offline. You might be able to email Clobba and ask since it seems like they're still doing business with them. They also may have just rebranded.
>>10570566link to the plus size stuff pls!
anybody know if you can buy lolita shoe buckles on taobao? like the snap things that bodyline and taobao shoes usually have.And if so, how do i find them?
>>10570592I doubt they're dead since WW just listed a bunch of reservations for them, but I was actually just about to come here and ask the same question about Haruhi Clover. I can't access any of the links of their items I had saved and taobao keeps kicking me to the login page on their front page.
>>10570566Link to the rocking horse shoes?
>>10570592https://hinanaqueena.taobao.com/ works for me. For some reason the first link that pops up on Google search is wrong.
>>10570657I think that's their preorder page?Unless Clobba is marking up their prices for this by double the price.
Decided to take the plunge and order directly from taobao to see if it will make a big difference in cost. Usually, I use spreenow. Got like 4 RHS so I am dreading the shipping cost.Only thing I am really worried about is the dress is a preorder and I am just not sure how that works, I am assuming it will show me when it's ready for the second payment? Got my fingers crossed.
>>10570717I think usually they contact your SS for the second payment when they're ready and your SS will invoice you again for the next charge. I haven't done a preorder in years so apologies if I'm wrong.
>>10570717Cute pickup anon!! Let us know how it goes with Spreenow, I’m curious.
>>10570801oh lol misread post nvm re:spreenow
>>10570717That dress looks surprisingly gorgeous... Now I'm curious. Wouldn't mind a review when you receive it, anon-chan.Also, 4 RHS?You brave son of a bitch
>>10570717they will usually have a time period in the preorder listing, just pay attention or set a reminder. some shops message you when second payment is up, but most shops expect you to remember it yourself. or atleast, that’s been my experience preordering myself with direct instead of SS
>>10570665I stand corrected, I am just a dummy
>>10570665I stand corrected. Unfortunately my preferred color way is gone so guess I'll die.
>>10570717I did an Alice Girl and Yupbro preorder with Spreenow and they did remind me when the orders came to their warehouse. Just keep an eye on the order messages.
>>10570717Rocking horse shoes link?
>>10570858Yeah more like stupid, got caught up in how cheap they were, but oh well. They shouldn't weigh too horribly since it's not like they have the wooden soles. But I know it won't be great.>>10570858Yeah I've really got my fingers crossed because it looks amazing and I'm always looking for more old-school looking things. I'll definitely leave a review when it finally makes it in. >>10570863Thanks!

>>10573150They overcharge then refund you after they ship your package.
Does anyone know of any stores that sell soft gel/plastic full cover tips? Think apres gel-x or kokoist gelip. Specially interested in refills of individual sizes
my bhiner package is 100% lost. they keep showing me a screenshot of a weird tracking that says it's been stuck at customs since January. no other tracking site says this. contacting customs was no help. i threatened them with a paypal claim so lets see what happens next.
I've been getting this pop-up message since a couple of weeks ago and it's really bugging me. I tried reloading with VPN, without VPN, logging out and back in again.. nothing works!Any advice? haven't been able to browse taobao for so long ;-;
>>10573242Why not buy gel x refills directly from apres? They do sets and individual sizes.
>>10573231I'm aware of how Superbuy works. The charge is still much higher than before.

>>10573150My shipping looked crazy expensive last time i bought from them because i had big boots. I paid like a 50 cent fee to have them remove the box and re-measure the shoes, and then I was able to get shipping calculator to be more like... $90 ish for 5 pairs of shoes and some dresses/blouses. So maybe you have an item with weird dimensions too? Just a thought!
So I'm trying to create an account on Superbuy but it keeps giving me an error saying "password should contain at most 20 characters". The password I'm entering is like, 9 characters long. Has anybody else had this issue?
>>10573364Don't use more than one tab.

Small haul for some basics and to try out Superbuy as an SS.
Posted this in the stupid questions thread but ti got ignored. I want the dress, hooded top, and the girdle. Which Style option Do I select to get all three?

>>10575004Usually the most expensive option is the full set option.
>>10574790I use superbuy and so far I haven’t had any issues. They take pictures of all of your items when they arrive in the warehouse, and if they find a flaw they will ask you if you want to request the store to send another.

>>10575963Thanks! Do you have any favorite jewelry shops from taobao?
>>10575004Okay, dont take this as 100% fact.... but I THHIIINKKKKK it means "With Yarn" the belt piece has the tulle overlay attached, and "Without" is just the belt itself with no tulle.I THINK. The translation is weird and the pictures give hardly any indication even in the reviews.
Anybody know if there is a Taobao store who do cutsews like older AP?
>>10570717 here, so I regret ordering directly already, I just paid the international shipping no problem but then later they tried to call me about 5 times and I obviously don't speak chinese so that didn't help. I found one person online who's gotten the same with one comment that it's about shipping or maybe a problem with the address. I have no clue what to do from here and no idea if I just wasted like 200 bucks or if I'll ever see these items. Ugh. It seemed so easy! Anyone have any ideas? Can I reach out to a shopping service about this? Which one?
does anyone have the link for evil tooth? i know that devilinspired sells their stuff, but i'm planning on making a big taobao order so i'd rather just get it directly from them.
>>10576033download aliwangwang (the messenger for taobao) and contact the seller through that instead. you can use google translate to communicate
>>10576043My only problem is that its not the seller that called, I think its the warehouse that's trying to ship my package to me. I do have the app and I'm about to try to reach out to the warehouse and the seller, so we will see.
>>10575968np! And I don't really have any I can think of, this is my first time ordering sweet jewelry from tb but I'll definitely review once this order arrives! The Alice in Halloween shop has some really cute stuff
>>10576050Did you answer the call?? Their customer service has different people that deal with different countries, so probably they are the ones calling and will speak English. Otherwise like >>10576043 said you can contact customer service and they will put you through to your countries customer service area who will use English. They pass you around a bit which is pretty annoying though, and they don't always listen to what the actual problem is.
>>10576056Yeah I answered but it was all Chinese and even worse it sounded like they were talking through a filter. I will try to reach out a few different ways I see listed and see what I can do. Good to know they have other country service at least a little
>>10576059Thank god for google translate. I guess I freaked out over not much. Wasn't too bad and I think at least I managed to fix my address with them so fingers crossed.apologies for being dumb.
>>10576059>>10576073Oooh okay fuck that then. Glad you could get it sorted with the customer service though, hopefully there are no problems from there!
>>10576073How did you contact them?
Would there be a particular reason why a shopping service would get so particular about not adding on other orders to one, so I could hold before shipping? I only ordered from one place before asking and it was just for two small headbows. I've never had this experience with a shopping service before, but this one seems a bit up tight. Lol...I even ordered from multiple places last year. But man. I'm not ordering from them again.. I'm not sure why they'd get butt hurt about me adding onto an order before international shipping....
>>10575995I hope so, because I want a cutsew that isn’t $150. Just something simple but cute for more casual coords.
>>10576110So I ended up actually going to my order in my taobao account and using the live chat option to talk to the warehouse forwarder and then Google translated my way to what I think is victory. I basically just asked if there was an issue with my shipment or address, they said it was "illegal" and so I asked if I could change it and then I gave him a different address and they said that would do it as long as it "verifies" correctly.
>>10575912Is rainbow doll house by cc cat still available? I can't find it anywhere for the life of me.I love all the jewelry you picked btw.
>>10576200Thanks for the details anon. I'm glad it worked out!
Anyone else having trouble with yoybuy? Whenever I try to order stuff it charges me and adds to my account balance but doesn't actually order the items. I've tried checking out numerous ways with no luck.
>>10570717I'm also ordering directly through Taobao, and the address input was confusing so I'm not surprised there was an issue. There was a section for some sort of acronym with nothing related to my actual address, but I had to fill it out. I wonder if the same call will come for me?
>>10576878nvm just found it, I'm a retard.
what search time would i use for anime figures?
>>10577090sorry, i figured someone would be able to help since this is the taobao thread. my bad.
I'd like to order some Antaina shoes and it seems like the easiest option is contacting them by email directly. Can someone here who has done it before tell me more about the process? What should I be aware of before ordering? If any gull has some advice regarding fit/sizing that would be more than welcome too
>>10577088its in the taobao dictionary.
>>10577155wait, I don't know why I haven't thought of that before, but would I be better off ordering from angelic imprint in terms of quality? do they offer a real leather option?
>>10577155>>10577170antaina makes the shoes custom based on your foot measurments and you can customize everything from design to color, angelic imprint doesn't any of that
>>10577155They literally don't reply. Tried years ago and got total silence.
>>10560575This stuff came in if people want reviews.
>>10577342review for the blue boots?
>>10577286same. the last time they contacted me was in 2017 to tell me they didn't have the type of heel i requested based on a stock photo.
>>10577155Like the other anons said they won't reply to your email. I also tried a few months ago. Use the cart system or an SS. Size 37 is 23.5 cm, size 38 is 24 cm, etc.
Anyone have a listing for single flower hair clips? I just want to mix and match piles of flowers on my head. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-c-s.w4002-12508704700.22.e49c2df0kXjJ6H&id=574066991533 was the closest I could find, but it's far from ideal. I did search but didn't find much, maybe I need to refine my terms if anyone has ideas. Searching "hairclip" and "flower" together doesn't have good results so far.

For some reason taobao's website is terrible for me, pages take several seconds to load and clicking on links from this thread usually results in a connection loss error. It's not my internet, every other website is fine. Is this just how taobao is for everyone?
any cosplayers willing to share where to get those fake boobs? Not in huge costhot sizes please just enough for a chestlet to actually be able to wear a cosplay with a bodice that doesn't have an ugly gape in the chest area.
any taobao shops that sell lolita appropriate wool boleros/cardigans?
>>10578077I typed in "fake breasts" on Aliexpress and a lot of options showed up. Don't just judge from the picture, if you click though them they usually have options for other sizes that start at a B cup
>>10578077I'm dumb, I wasn't paying attention and didn't realize this was the taobao thread. Maybe try translating fake breasts, good luck
>>10578097this literally doesn't help, retard. pay attention next time.
>>10578127I'm sorry being a chestlet bothers you so much
>>10553868>>10554967the link died can someone share the direct purchase taobao link again please and thank you
>>10578095I tried Ali first actually but I'm really hoping I won't have to dish out over 100$ for a pair of fake boobs and if so I definitely don't want to give that much to one of the Ali stores that all steal each other's pictures. I was hoping there were some know/reputable taobao stores.If I enter fake breasts either translated or not I only get those lil silicone pads in my results
>>10578332I found some interesting options, just wanted to share for anyone also interested that I got better results translating prosthetic silicone breasts instead of fake breasts
>>10578342don't listen to faggots trying to walk back their poor reading comprehension
>>10578345That ayrt isn't me (>>10578095 >>10578097) LMAO. You really need something better to do than screech at people who are just trying to be help someone find fake Chinese tiddies.
So, antaina vs angelic imprint vs sosic shop, who makes the best tea parties??
Not pictured are some shoes I kinda forget about
>>10578411Thats a cute strawberry blouse, is it cotton?
>>10578428https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=594895318008It appears to be listed as made from polyester
>>10578440Thank you! God I love strawberries but I'm a cotton supremacist
>>10578383Sosic by far for basic tea parties. They actually pad the sole so your feet don't end up aching after an hour of wearing them.
>>10577345The boots are nice and comfy. They have some insulating faux fur inside to keep your feet warm. They run a little big, but they can be tightened a little with the bows and the lengh would hide a big fluffy sock for warmth anyways if you needed it, so for cold weather they'd be perfect. I live in an area where they salt the roads and sidewalks so I'll be spraying mine with protective spray to protect the material. Compared to the pink boots they're a bit longer, but the pink ones are more true to size and have slightly more insulation, I'd say.
Is classical puppets and fantastic wind worth the price? I know most classic lolitas stick to brand, so maybe someone here will know. I'm dying for some nostalgia vintage looking shit
>>10578580I've never heard anything good about classical puppets' actual clothes releases
>>10578576Link to the boots?
>>10578580I used to own a Classical Puppets JSK. Construction was solid enough and cotton, but honestly unless you really loved something you might as well buy brand, unless you're super tall or something. Their JSKs run really long.
>>10578580I just own one dress from Fantastic Wind but I love it. The construction is solid and the fabric is ok, if a little thin. It's big in the bust area for being a size small but I can manage. I'd say it's worth what I paid for it.This is the dress I own: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=622063385532

>>10575912Link to the brown and pink socks and blue bunny ring?
Because people still keep having this issue:The eternal slider popup is caused by most browsers restricting some of Taobao's loading scripts, using Chromium fixes that issue.

So I forgot my username and I can't log-in anymore. Retreiving usernames is only for alipay member which I am obviously not. I tried to make a new account, but it wouldn't let me because my phone number is already taken. Is there any way I can browse taobao or am I fugged?
>>10579102you can use google voice or something similar to make a new phone number
>>10578732Please be sure to check whatever you want to buy is "spot" and not "deposit". A lot of times they have reservations and the suspicious extremely cheap price is just the first part of the payment.

Since I'm in the US I wasn't going to use a SS but it looks like changing the delivery location to "overseas" makes shipping insanely expensive, like $30+ per item. Is it cheaper to use an SS?
>>10579401anon, i think you're doing it wrong. make sure you register your US address in your account first. the system automatically changes it to a warehouse address when you order something. usually it's just a couple dollars more as they charge a higher sales tax. i think the reason you are seeing expensive shipping prices is because you're not picking the "集运空运" aka taobao direct option.
>>10579428You're right, I'm dumb. I was selecting "overseas" on the individual items which is why it was so much haha. Thank you!

>>10579610柴犬 is shiba inu, so i assume 柴柴 is the dog one but i can't figure it out either. i've messaged the seller to ask if you don't mind waiting (since it's night time there now). or if someone else knows lol

good options for goth cardigans/boleros? I have a big chest so I can't buy moitie ones or other brand ones and taobao is usually plus size friendly. So far I've only found a couple from HMHM and surfacespell that are nice + have custom sizes or larger sized, but HMHM had reports of issues w/ orders in a recent tb thread, so I'm looking for more options.

>>10582321it says 2 months production time, preorders closed March 5th, so you'll be waiting until May for it. for clarification they start production for the entire collection after the preorder period, not after you place your individual order.
current superbuy order, tho some of them are still rotting in my cart since i'm indecisive
>>10582191As far as I'm aware they let you customize just about anything and everything. I would go with a SS who can speak good english and can translate that wish for you. Maybe 42agent?
>>10557287I have a kind of bizarre question about the construction: how is the ruffle on the side of the skirt attached? Is it a section replacing that part of the skirt (left) or is it sewn on top of the full skirt (right)? I'm into the dress but not so much the ruffle, and I've been wondering if I could easily remove it but I've not been able to find any pictures to tell if that's even possible.
>>10582360Thank you, Google translate wasn't helping me much
>>10582382I own this dress. The ruffle is a sewn in panel, like your left diagram, so it's not removable.

>>10582384Damn, there goes that plan. Thanks for answering, though!
>>10582467Sorry for the terminally stupid question but there's two options for this listing that are translating as 'sixth installment' and 'first batch', which one of these would I pick as a deposit if I'm just ordering for the first time?
>>10582372i was thinking about that same zip bunny hoodie but i already have a bunch of stuff ordered and am worried about shipping being crazy so maybe next time
there were a few more things but they got sold out by the time the ss went to place the order ripalso a few more things i have siting in cart im trying to decide on, but at any rate this is all i have ordered so far

Could anyone point me to a shop that sells elaborate or ridiculous keychains (or other accessories) similar to this? I'm not specifically looking for plushies. https://shop72353831.taobao.com/ I found this Japanese stationary store while looking for something else. I assume everything is authentic, seems to be Japanese imports>>10558296I believe Superbuy will. I've used Superbuy for several years and will be trying a newer shopping service named Sugargoo on my next order. Will report how it goes in general, although the only places I'd be ordering from are Taobao or Weidan.>>10557220I enormously envy you if you can wear that dress on the bottom row, far left to work.
>>10584230https://lovebalar.taobao.com/ https://shop518360702.taobao.com/https://shop125813310.taobao.com/https://shop148502141.taobao.com/https://shop185101768.taobao.com/Here are a few, but its all real fur.. In the past for me, all random keychains I have bought have ended up being real fur (even the ones I thought were too cheap to be fur) so if you are against that definitely keep it in mind as they don't always specify it!!!
>>10584537Damn, real fur? I'm surprised and a bit sad to hear that. A local store sells these for the equivalent of $15 USD each but as far as I know they're not real fur; I think I'd prefer to not take the risk. I appreciate the links though but more appreciate the caveat.
