Google translate and I can't figure out if this is a listing only for final payments or if I can order one https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/detail.html?id=632428832431
Reposting from lolita general.Anyone know where EvaHair and this Etsy shop are reselling this wig from?evahair.com/1057-evahair-blonde-and-pink-mixed-color-long-wavy-synthetic-wig-with-bangs.htmletsy.com/listing/903671242/lolita-wig-sheathgolden-big-wave
Anyone know what store this is from?
>>10600814>https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/detail.html?id=632428832431This is already the second payment. They might sell leftovers at full price after second payment period is over so look out for that (现货 OR 现货掉落) or wait for another round of preorders!
>>10600893This should be it: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=642416720763
Can someone recommend some opaque white, (any pastel colors or red would also be nice) blouses? and for sheer blouses does anyone wear an undershirt for them if they want to wear a skirt?
>>10601060I've ordered so many blouses anon, I'll be sure to review some as soon as they get here. My package is in postal hell so check back in like two weeks.
>>10601493ntayrt but I would also really appreciate that
Here's my most recent order! Not pictured: tons of lace from laces.taobao.com for making accessories
>>10601060Yolanda sells my favorite blouses, I really like https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=601479606198
i bought a skirt but the necktie was missing, so the seller shipped it separately at a later date after my agent contacted them. everything has gone to superbuy's guangdong warehouse but for some reason this neck tie has been sent to and signed for in beijing by "family members". has anyone else had this happen before?
been trying to preorder some things but this page has been blocking me. Google translate seems to be implying that I need a mainland china card, red envelope (what is that), Jifenbao (even more confusing), or a Alipay shopping card. Am I just going to have to preorder through Chinese Lolita Updates?
>>10601894heres the untranslated page if theres a gull who can read chinese
>>10601894>>10601896looked through the archives and boom it seems I can't preorder with a foreign card. Looks like chinese lolita updates will be seeing me soon
>>10601865That blouse is gorgeous. Sage for not contributing but how comfy is the material?
Just a heads up gulls, superbuy changed the way you do rehearsal packaging now. First 10 items are 20 yuan, each additional item is 1 extra yuan. My parcel's gonna be 41 items and the total charge for rehearsal (now called "Superbuy shipping expert service" which you gotta purchase in the warehouse BEFORE submitting parcels or the tab for it goes away) is $10 instead of the old flat rate of $3ish USD.
>>10602437Wow, that sucks. For hauls that have a lot of items like yours you might as well just pay for the estimated shipping and get the refund.
>>10602453I'm hoping I'll still save quite a bit of money since the estimated shipping cost was $300 (which seems a little ridiculous since I saw other 14kg hauls shown on their app in the user section being only $150-200). If not, at least I still have my shipping coupons and loyalty points. Still shit they added on more costs for rehearsal shipping though.
Does anyone have some shops they can personally recommend for legwear (aside from Roji Roji and Red Maria)?
Does anyone have agent recommendations, or should I just go with taobao directly? 42agent seems to have cheaper shipping than Superbuy, but is that realistic? In the good ol' US of A
>>10602607Sugargoo is new on the scene, but they have the cheapest currency exchange/shipping rates of all the agents I've tried (Superbuy, Bhiner, 42agent, Spreenow). I've done a couple of hauls with them now and each time I've experienced excellent service.
>>10602607I'm also in the USA and have had no troubles using taobao's international logistic services. I've gotten a few aliwangwang messages from sellers involving sizing, etc but google translate helps. The only thing you may want to use a SS for is preorders, I'm not sure if you can do those without one
>>10602621Wow, their rate is only 8 yuan per item? Would you mind sharing weight and shipping prices? I'm trying to get an idea of budget but their website is bugging out.>>10602629I'll definitely consider this, as well. Glad to know it went smoothly for you!
>>10602781Sure, my last haul was 8kg and I paid $170 for EMS. This haul had a purse, some shoes and a pack of hangers so it was a sizeable box. I checked and the same parcel would have cost over $200 on Superbuy.
>>10602781Also try using the shipping calculator in incognito mode, if you're using Chrome.
baby's first taobao order!! I'm very excited
>>10602629I tried to use this for months but after my first payment they (Taobao? Alipay?) stopped accepting any of my cards so I couldn't pay for anything. Has anyone run into that before and how do you fix that?
>>10602887Yes, I've run into that before. I called my bank and they said my card was getting declined because the billing address was wrong, I double checked and it was correct but Taobao stores your address in Chinese order which may throw it off. They were able to manually accept the charge once I called though, so that may be worth a try for you. Sorry I don't know a true fix for it
>>10602895Thanks for the tip! Did it work ever after or do you have to call every time you need to pay?
>>10602899I've had to call every time so it's kind of a hassle. Let me know if you find a better solution!
Does anyone have any idea where to find this bag? reverse image search is no help
3 questions.1. any shops that do lacefront wigs?2. good fake lash stores?3. is hengji any good?
>>10602923No, but that looks like it will discolor immediately. The rose looks like it is hot glued on. I think you could make a version of this that looked less DIY.
Stupid question for gulls that use 42agent for preorders: if you pay in full at the beginning, do you need to ask them to send the end payment or do they pay it in full at the beginning/get a notification for the final payment?
>>10602812That worked! thanks, anon. Looks like it's less expensive that superbuy, but more than 42agent and taobao direct. Perhaps the reduction in agent fees make up for it, though
>>10603561you pay full from the start
Anon from the last thread who got all the Yolanda blouses. Did anyone want reviews?
>>10602923There are shitloads of these bags and iterations of them all over aliexpress and taobao, literally just use the taobao dictionary/google and search 'frame bag' on taobaobut like other anon said it's just a plain bag with the accents hotglued on, you can buy the individual pieces just as easily
I ordered >>10591146 and it came in today, an anon asked about the sailor suit and wig- the sailor suit: This one pleasantly surprised me since it was only about $12. I'm not sure what the material is but it's quite thick and not shiny or see through at all. The skirt has an adjustable waist and a pocket! I bought a size up for it to be baggy on me and it looks good. desu I bought this just for fun not expecting much but it's quite nice. I'll probably pick up another one with my next order.
>>10603748I would be interested in that.
I'll have a haul Soon(tm).In the meantime, does anyone know where I could find a blouse in navy that goes up to maybe 130cm in the bust?
>>10603897-the long black wigI'm a dumbass. this is only a partial wig. It's a small circle constructed to clip into your real hair to give it more volume and hime bangs, not a full wig like I thought. Smelled very strongly of chemicals when I opened the box and stank up the room I opened it in for hours. The fibers are very soft but get tangled easily, it was tangled when I opened it and a bitch to sort out. It looks pretty natural indoors but didn't pass the flash test. The quality is only okay, so I wouldn't really recommend it. Don't make the same mistake I did and buy it thinking it was a full wig kek
>>10603667But as I know, it is $0 taobao agent fee from Superbuy
>>10601816link to the tomato jsk please!
>>10603918Agents who advertise "0 fees" are making money through inflated currency exchange rates. Sugargoo has the lowest of the ones I've tried whereas Superbuy's exchange rate has increased since I started using them last year.
Need help find shoes like these in size 3/4 MAX 5. Or at least a store that does smaller sizing feet for an adult female. I know of the few lolita shoe stores that does custom sizing, however I also need it for normiesque fashion.(I'm 4'6 and I have small feet)>>10604062I have also noticed this with Superbuy, I will try another SS once my preorder with superbuy is over.
>>10603680I know that I pay 42agent in full, I'm asking if 42agent pays the shop in full at the beginning or if I'm supposed to send them a reminder for the final payment
>>10604215they don't, they pay in parts, doesn't need a reminder as shops message people about the second payment being due usually
My tracking hasn't updated in two weeks. I know there's shipping delays, but at what point is it reasonable to ask my shopping service wtf is going on? I shipped EMS and I'm getting real nervous now.
Anybody know how the hell to find the tracking for a Taobao package (direct) for when it reaches your country?
>>10604523Meh, unless tracking isn't showing that the package was shipped, just calm down and wait. Chinese customs takes a bit to clear and it's not like they can do anything about it anyways. If it's still not to you in like 2 months pm them, lol.
>>10604817hahaha, thank you for the reality check. I'm just used to getting EMS in like 5 business days, so when they said there's delays I thought "oh 10-15 days then. no probs" I'll keep waiting then and trying not to lose it lmao.
Anyone know of stores that sell blank straw hats? Like boater style, but without any ribbons? I want to customize my own.
Is it possible to get (preferably sweet) cotton blouses with a small risk of supporting Xinjiang's horrible labour practices? I know I'm asking for a lot(but anon, it's still made in china, blah blah blah), but suggestions are appreciated
Asking again for normie wigs for thick hair/big heads.
>>10603897Sorry to ask if it's easy to find but do you have the link to the RHS ? I didn't come up with anything with the doctionary words on superbuy.
why do most(sweet style) taobao stores release items in this "dusty pastel" color palette instead of a brighter one more like the ones japanese brands use? recs for brands that use the bright pastels?
>>10605403Not on taobao it's not. There's no transparency about manufacturing for the majority of shops, let alone lolita
>>10605052>>10604523I have an EMS package from superbuy that also hasn’t updated, but for me it’s been exactly a month. Superbuy just told me “there are delays and we are monitoring the situation!”. Meanwhile all my aliexpress packages are arriving faster than normal or with no delays.
>>10605744It is used a lot in classic brands. Both in Japan and in China.
>>10605760>>10604523my SS said there's not been enough flights to usa/canada so EMS,SAL,China Post will have extra delays, so if youre in NA that's probably why
A couple threads ago anons were talking about sleep masks,I will bring it back up, anyone find nice ones to recommend
>>10605720No problem! Here: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z0k.7628869.1997989141.5.2ccb128aYpYSXF&id=45009742827&_u=
>>10605773Yes, I understand that muted colours is classic's palette. But some brands are releasing all of their dresses in bright reds, blues...and sweet themed prints, then turn around and release all of their non-main pieces in this kind of shades
>>10606118Thank you ! they have a ton of color option !
>>10605744Link to these?
>>10605760>>10605899Thanks everyone. That's not exactly good news but at least it's reassuring that nothing got lost or that the situation isn't unique.
>>10604045sorry for the late reply https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=576732896620
anyone know of any shops that have cute little rabbit figurines like this

Have any gulls bought xianyu items using taobao and consolidated there packages using taobao? I don't have alot of details since I'm asking for a penpal I sent a dream dress link to and she's having trouble with the shipping address. She said that the address that the seller was getting was her US address instead of the Taobao warehouse. Any help would be appreciated!
>>10607398your friend should use a SS since taobao and xianyu are separate things hope she gets her DD though
>>10607398can't you only buy from xianyu using the app and with a verified chinese identity?
looking for a few thingsa peter pan collar blouse or ruffle collar blouse with a bust accommodation of at least 100cm. looking for pink, yellow, and bluebunny wristcuffs (can't find any good quality ones)cotton socks (plus size friendly)
>>10601816Link to teddy bear backpack and NEET sweater please??
>>10607276That's awesome! How the frog bag turned out to be?
>>10608376it seems pretty legitgymmaster no longer lists the flourescent green i got on any of their official stores, so i think this may be a discontinued item or a factory reject or something along those lines. it's a bit smaller than the stock images make it seem but i'm very very satisfied esp since i dont have to drop like 8k jpy for it
my ss doesn't want to buy from xianyu because it's risky in that if the buyer is unhappy there is little to no recourse. which, understood, but idcwhich ss do you recommend that is fine with xianyu
reqs for cute adjustable aprons for plump grandmas who work at cafes
>>1060917742agent, charges a little higher fee for xianyu tho
Could anyone tell me what is the difference between the more and less expensive options for this flute? Is the cheaper one supposed to be for beginners?
devilinspired is doing a free shipping promotion for mother's day and i was thinking of ordering shoes and other heavier things that jack up shipping prices. i've heard complaints about them refunding orders. do you guys think it's worth a try?
>>10609580please just make a spreenow account.
Can anyone help me understand the description? Is this a second deposit or first? I don't see anything about a full price in the info.https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3-c.w4002-2416030270.79.6b1f141aPbLpYZ&id=644486518173

Is EMS still fucked? My taobao order from April 1st with superbuy still hasn’t moved at all.
>>10602884Are those sashes??? WANT
>>10609547wheres the link lmao, how the fuck can anyone tell from just a pic
>>10610647you right I'm a fucking idiot lolhttps://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.22.214.171.124706b90KBAE1c&id=610602142412&ns=1&abbucket=12#detail
>>10610506Try to ask the customer service of Superbuy. Maybe they could help you.
Can someone tell me if this is a replica? Thank you.https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=529195235096
>>10610506I'm gonna say yes, at least for me it is. I'm April 14th tho so if you're 1st that lets me know I have a ton of waiting ahead of me still...just gotta keep being patient I guess. I still have one more package in the warehouse I wanted to ship, but it's got shoes so I was hoping to ship SAL. I'm moving in November tho so I'm thinking I'm just gonna have it sent to my friend's house in the city I'm moving so I don't have to worry if it takes over six months.
>>10610702They just said they’re monitoring the package.
>>10610506i wonder if it depends on where you're shipping to? i had a superbuy package going to canada and it arrived within a week (probs got on a plane that was close to leaving)
>>10610523they're belts, not sashes. I'm guessing about two fingers wide. The piece next to the short capelet is a sash/stole though! >>10610503black blouse is sold out; I think it was a preorder though so they might come back in a couple months. veils are here tho: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z09.2.0.0.7cdf2e8dxk7dYv&id=622989631472&_u=c3tdhc7lccbfAnd here's the listing where the shirt *was.* Maybe there's some untranslated info about it coming back when the preorders come in?: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z09.2.0.0.7cdf2e8dxk7dYv&id=638016153102&_u=c3tdhc7lbab8

I keep getting network issues when trying to sign up to taobao
I'm thinking about ordering a dress from miss point. What do you guys thing about the brand and quality?
>>10611298Yeah, I get that sometimes too. Uninstalling McAfee helped a lot, now I only get it a small fraction of the time.
>>10602990I'm also wondering about hengji, some of the wigs I want have pictures in the reviews but a lot are super filtered.
Small-ish order at the moment.
Can anyone with a Taobao account take a quick peak at the 未知星辰lolita (seller: ahuihui22) shop for a copy of this JSK set listing?: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=642911955760 . Not sure if 'Dream Studio' actually is selling the original since that shop has it listed for suspiciously cheap and is chock full of replicas of taobao JSKs; I reverse image searched the model photos and the model attributed that dress design to 未知星辰lolita.
>>10612013>未知星辰lolitaI checked the account, the original isn't being sold from there. It's likely not being made anymore.
Are there any shops that sell detachable nun collars (like the one on Nameless Poem)? I'm not exactly sure what search terms to use, "nun collar" brought up nothing.
>>10612279Nevermind figured it out, 尖领lolita seems to work.
I've been trying out Superbuy and so far it's going pretty well. But, I'm wondering if anyone has tried using their shopping agent service for an auction? I've put in the remark section that I do not want my bid to exceed a specific amount, but before I confirm I'd love to see if anyone else has done this.
>>10611342Generally it seems the fabrics they use are pretty nice, I have a couple things coming in but my package has been in god's hands for about 2 months now so you can either wait for my review or just go for it anon
>>10610415I think that it is the first deposit, and that the seller will edit the page when the time for the second comes around.>>10610667This reads to me like the more expensive option includes a matching flute. So, two flutes. >>10611035I read through the image and there's nothing about it coming back. Might be gone forever, sadly.There was a giant chunk of cautions about sizing and stuff though. Would you be interested in them?
>>10603898>>10602125Anon with the Yolanda blouses here with a late review. Something that doesn't show well in the stock photos and mine is that the sleeves are a layer of lace and chiffon? with these glitter strands sewn in which look amazing when the light hits them. The top bow isn't detachable and the collar part isn't elastic. However the sleeves are elastic and the bows on them aren't detachable either but I think the lace on the sleeves could bother some people's skin.
>>10612560I thought this was a cotton blouse for some reason so be wary that it's a poly blouse. The sleeves have elastic on them and it's fit was comfortable for me. (I have moderately bulky arms but they fit nicely without strain) There's these waist tie like ribbons on the waist which...is a nice addition. It has a clasp second from the top for puckering? But I wouldn't rely on it to prevent more than a little puckering. If your near the end of a size, I would recommend you just size up.
>>10612566Size was not a issue again, although I think I could have afforded to go a size down for this blouse since it felt a bit loose fitting on my frame. The collar bow is detachable for this blouse and the lace wasn't itchy for me. I bought this since I was interested in the idea of a convertible blouse using a drawstring, but I'm still on the fence. The drawstring uses a glass bead on the end of it and I could see it breaking easier in hime mode. As for the look... it's nice? But I think I would just wear this as a puffed sleeve way more than as a hime blouse. Maybe it would be a nice alternative if you want to wear a casual hime cord in the ssummer? Also, the pearl that's on the end of the drawstring isn't big enough to prevent the drawstring from slipping out of the channel so be prepared to put it back in if it gets out.
I'm in the US. Am I going to have an issue shipping hello kitty items here? I have two bowls in my order
