That means, they can be easily washed and can take a pretty good beating. Specially looking for solids since they aren't as flashy as sweet prints.

Are you looking at the right store? I believe Lingxi has two stores. x-lolita.world.taobao.com is the right one.

This is a direct link to the Twilight Lily reservation page. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4002-23835407024.10.599c792b5V5BKG&id=665633818748

I ordered a couple of these from Boguta: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-c.w4002-21877950657.11.49a34869MVX3IH&id=559289171755\

they're cotton and I can easily style them in a normie way, too. If you're into classic and gothic, surface spell tends to have nice solids too. Infanta had a solid dress with lace that was like pseudo-oldschool sweet that was decently cute. I have an old Infanta piece I've worn and washed numerous times and it has held up. It's pretty hard to find good solids, tho. Lots of prints.

There’s no Ali thread and the seller is also on Taobao so I figured I’d ask here: has anyone had issues with Uwowo not sending out their package? I ordered something from them on 11/11 and I finally got tired of waiting and messaged them at the beginning of the month. They said their factory was closed for LNY (understandable) so they didn’t have the cosplay on hand. But now it’s the end of the month and they still keep giving me the LNY excuse.
I’ve been seeing other people get their cosplays from Uwowo recently (i.e. sent out last month and they just got it) so I know it’s not that they’ve suspended shipping altogether.
>>
>>10735836
Did you forget about the olympics?
>>
>>10735658
>>10735654
Is this through the proxy or forwarding service...? I have a bunch of stuff going to their warehouse (+more) for the forwarding service and I've never had this but I haven't used them in a while so maybe things changed... Now I'm worried.
>>
>>10735862
for me it was for their forwarding service. they also kept emailing me asking for my shop name/website despite me telling them it was for my personal use. do they not expect people to have money?
>>
>>10735838
Why would the Olympics cause a factory to close? It’s a big event but not a national holiday.

>>10735836
Did you order on Aliexpress or Taobao? If you ordered through AE, just cancel your order and ask for a refund. It’s been 3 months.

This is taobao adjacent so I hope it's ok but would anyone in Australia be interested to do a group order for these plushes? (or if anyone outside AU is confident with QQ and want to buy please consider it, the group needs 100 for each to open the group and they're sitting at about 50 for each with Samatoki at 60). Orders close March 10 and any doll that doesn't hit 100 orders will be canceled.

Message me for details (gmail). I also have instructions for those who are confident ordering through a forwarding service themselves but need help with the specific steps for QQ etc.
>>
>>10735862
It was shopping service for me, but they finally replied to my email and apparently you just need to type "NA", and that worked for me

Can someone help me find beige top lace socks like this one from meta? I tried searching up lace socks on Taobao but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.
>>
>>10736540
IIRC 15cm plush clothes are made for plushes with a 15cm chest circumference (the 15cm refers to the height but I think the chest circumferences on them is also coincidentally 15cm). You could buy one cheap 15cm plush shirt and try it on, and if it fits go back and buy more? Things like arm circumference and clothing length could vary.
>>
>>10736419
That's good to know, thanks! Yoybuy is my go-to so I'd really hate to stop having to use them.

Any Hawaiian shirt/all over print shirt recs?

>>10736607
I don't think you'll find anything like this on Taobao. A few Chinese brands released cotton lace utks somewhat similar to what you'd consider lolita appropriate to go along with their old school inspired releases, but even then I don't recall them having raschel lace or being available in an ivory colorway
>>
>>10736607
>>10736748
Samefag, but your best bet would probably be these. However, they're not ivory either.

https://a.aliexpress.com/_mqVPlLQ
>>
>>10736607
Just get them from Meta. Even the good quality UTKs I've found on taobao were around 10-15 bucks not including shipping. You'll save maybe $5 getting them off taobao.
>>
>>10736619
The info about the chest circumference will come in handy thank you anon! I will buy a maid dress and see if it fits my Tomos. My concern is indeed the arms since they are so short.
>>
I find it so ironic cgl hates on any coords with lots of Taobao but also hosts threads for it
>>
>>10737081
I think it's just a lot of Taobao stuff looks/are low quality. It's popular among newbies looking for cheap stuff they could find on Aliexpress (Taobao items). Sometimes you could find some gems on it if you know how to search. Also other fashion/hobbies (like dolls) us Taobao too its not lolita specific when it comes to this tread.

I found these on Taobao maybe I'll try searching xianyu next? It doesn't have to raschel lace socks just otk/utk that's beige/ivory with top lace matching the socks.
>>10736754
I have those! I'm getting more tho my white ones ripped. They are very soft and look nice. I don't know how to describe it the quality feels good but isn't good as they will rip with repeated use. I may try to dye them ivory or something.
>>10736768
I'm done a Taobao haul anyways with or without the socks. I looked on the Meta website and these are in stock but I don't want to deal with the shipping cost for one pair of socks as I don't want anything else from the site. Maybe I'll just wait for it on the secondhand market.

Can someone find this actually on taobao? I'm only seeing it on DI, nut i don't want to give them my money.
>>
>>10737398

FYI you can still use DI to find taobao stuff. On the DI page it said "Lollipops" which tells me that's somewhere in the brand name. So I search on Taobao "Lollipops lolita" and click around until I find it. Doesn't work every single time but it helps.

Yoybuy marked the package with the tiny n*ke shoes I bought in >>10735500 as sensitive because of the logo... I mean I get it but..........

Bruh……… yoybuy why
>>
>>10738264
yoybuy is the worst.
>>
>>10738289
I mean as silly as it seems I kind of get why they wouldn't want to risk anything. I've never had a problem with yoybuy and they split my individual packages when I need to ship different things to different addresses, pack things the way I want them to (I had a playmat that I needed them to put in a tube to prevent it from getting squashed in transit and they helped me do that for a small fee) and they got rid of the shoes and the toy camera (which had a battery that I didn't know about) for free. It sucks that they had to be tossed but they were only three dollars so it's no big loss. I've only used their shopping service maybe once though so I don't know what goes on at that end, I mostly just use their forwarding service

Man fuck shipping companies for jacking up prices despite making record profits during the pandemic. A parcel that cost me $102 to ship with Aramex last July would cost $223 to ship now, or $175 with UPS. And then I have to eat the conversion to AUD. Agh.
>>
>>10740109
At this point it I'm not even going to bother anymore if the shipping is as expensive as the item I'm buying or even worse, and combined with the gas/electricity bills that suddenly doubled in a short time.
Why even live lmao
>>
>>10740109
Ugh. Feeling this..

Taobao just canned the 4PX Warehouse for NZ which shipping was actually a decent rate.. Forced to use ZTO who overweigh EVERYTHING and the price is just ridiculous.. EMS is a fucking joke at the moment too, cost me $100NZD just to ship a 1.2kg package and still took 30 days to get here. Plz, I just want to waste money on cheap Chinese junk. Have mercy.
>>
>>10740280
I paid $300 NZD for an 8 KG in November, it sounds like it's far worse now. Strange too, as shipping from Japan seems to have become almost cheaper via UPS or DHL for smallish packages (<3kg).

What sort of things are you ordering? I'm going to place an order soon with a business contact in China and have it loaded into a shipping container resulting in cheap shipping.
>>
>>10740109
Honestly at this point it's cheaper to use resellers unless you can do some kind of group order with someone else near you to split the cost.
>>
>>10740293
I think EMS is especially bad, I haven't noticed much change for DHL prices as EMS seems to have crept up almost as high, you may as well just use DHL at this point cos it only works out a few dollars more. As far as I have seen too most of the Chinese SS who did have a discount for EMS no longer do.

With 4PX I was ordering everything, shoes, clothes, boardgames etc. a 10kg order was costing me around $180NZD. I think they were actually going via true weight though. But I have a pair of boots sitting with ZTO at the moment which they have weighed in at 1.9kg which even for volumetric I think is a bullshit out the ass weight. I'm not sure how long container shipping is taking at the moment, but I am tempted to switch to a different package forwarder as I have a biased hatred of ZTO.
>>
Went on xiaohongshu today and I got recommended a bunch of forwarding services lmao they heard me complaining

>>10740297
Most of what I buy is fabric and cosplay stuff so no go for resellers, and even if I did buy from resellers it probably won't save me that much to be honest (ah the joys of living in Australia). I do group orders with my friends but it's still so fucking ridiculous, like this time around my friend bought a monitor riser and they have to pay $79 in shipping... Probably would've been cheaper to buy local but oh well it's too late for that now.

>>10740280
How much was 4PX? I had a look at the official tb forwarding prices and it was something like 132RMB/kg which would only save me a few dollars.
>>
Anyone have shops they recommend for wristcuffs? I've checked the ones in the spreadsheet but nothing struck me, and don't seem as common on Taobao as other accessories from searching.
>>
>>10737081
>/Cgl/ is one person
>>
>>10740375
¥110 for the first kg and ¥70 for each additional with ZTO it looks like. 4PX I believe had very similar rates (can't check it now as its not there) BUT because ZTO over weighs stuff it ends up being expensive anyways.

But I definitely found the shipping offered through Taobao with 4PX to be much cheaper than any SS had offered me, the only downside was Taobao charges you the 15% import tax to NZ.

Hey, sorry for the late reply. If you're interested in piggybacking off the order I'm putting together please email me at ^. To clarify, I'm having the package loaded into a container that's being used to import stuff for manufacturing here, i.e free shipping. It just might take a while and I have no way of knowing how long it will be, maybe a month, maybe 2. You'd just have to pay for your stuff of course and domestic shipping in both China and here. Also I probably can't take a gigantic order but if you're just getting a few things it should be OK

aliexpress resellers are usually x3 the price of taobao, meanwhile at agents you usually pay only a 4-6% fee which makes it cheaper

had no idea it would've been such a high markup, ill look into agents soon then, thanks

if you are ordering a lot of stuff, taobao is a better option as it will be a bit cheaper even with the fees. but if it's just a few things, aliexpress is the better option because it's not worth the extra fees

I'm ordering a custom size off Aliexpress but I don't see anywhere to put the custom sizes. I only just added the item to my cart and haven't checked out yet because I'm scared of paying for it and somehow missing giving them the custom size options. Anyone know what I do for custom sizes?

I am trying to find out the name/background of the people who manage Soufflesong-Neverland Lolita. Mostly, looking for the real names, preferably in Mandarin characters, of the people who manage the brand. Especially if there's someone specifically called a "CEO" or "Director" of sorts of Soufflesong.

if I'm shopping at taobao (got a huge backlog to ship so might as well) for maid dresses would it be better to buy one OP and an apron separately or something marketed as a maid dress altogether?
Any gulls got any experience or recs?

Xianyu is going independent from taobao which means I can't see my new xianyu orders from my taobao account anymore and therefore can't pay for them with my international card. Worst day of my life.

OMG you can use an international card this whole time!??! I've been scamming myself with an SS for years argh.

>>10752504
I discovered recently that if you checkout a xianyu listing and quit without paying you can then view it in your unpaid tab in taobao and pay with an international card that way, but xianyu listings don't show up in my taobao anymore because they're going independent >:( Now I have to run in circles to try and top up my alipay balance ugh

I added a card recently but it can be soooo picky! Are you using the AliPay app? The website is a nightmare, so if not - definitely use the app! And make sure its the international app and not an APK of the Chinese one!

I have found it can also be super picky about how you add your card and what sort of card you use, eg. I have a prepaid international card that AliPay refuses to load on the app, however I can checkout through AliPay on Taobao using it? The only way I can do it is login with the app, click "Me" then click "bank card" but it only takes my standard bank issued VISA/ Mastercard. I have also found it is a BITCH to verify anything, basically if youre outside of China, do not have Chinese ID or Chinese bank account it wont do anything, just rejects/ says its wrong, I'm not sure how you're trying to add your card but that is possibly why.

I added a screenshot of the app and how I can add the cards, but if its different for you it probably isnt much help. If it is the same and youre doing everything the same way, then I have no idea why it has decided it hates you.

Hi original OP here (that was wanting the link) it arrived earlier this week- it’s pretty nice for the price, the fabric quality is good, it’s a matte poly and there’s decently cute and detailed details in the print, I can see it getting a bit washed out in some washes though.
It’s definitely worth the price to be honest. Straps are adjustable, has nice strong shirring (though I don’t understand why they made it so short length wise, definitely doesn’t sit perfect even if you’re flat), though I’m 163/4cm and think it’s p short as it ends a good palm above my knees. Looking back I ordered L and it may have done me well to order XL for the length.

Either way, I have poly AP dresses and based on them I was actually mildly impressed by this dress for 1/10 the price.

Is it a good idea to buy custom dolls from Taobao? Mainly the face.
>>
>>10759742
Depends what sort you are after, I have commissioned a bunch of dolls from Taobao and they have all been great, and even better.. about 1/10th of the price had I commissioned someone local. I did have to send them the dolls head first, they did not have heads in stock so there is that? But it depends what you are after I guess?
>>
>>10759974
Thanks for your reply! I want to commission heads for Nendoroid dolls. The characters I like don't have a nendo and I doubt they will. Is there any criteria behind choosing which store aside from the reviews and store rank? Which agent is best for custom stuff?
>>
>>10760091
I was ordering Monster High and just going by what was on their Weibo, or displays previous work and kinda just ignored the store rank. But I also ordered directly and forwarded to an agent, which I would recommend if you can as its much better talking to the seller directly yourself as all the ones I had dealt with would message multiple times to confirm styles and finalise the product before sealing it which would be slow/ annoying with an SS.

Though, if you need to send them the head and youre not super confident with Taobao it may be better going through the SS and paying them to buy and have the head shipped to the seller.

Okay anons, I fucked up when signing up and somehow got my phone number banned. According to the articles I've read, unlocking the number would be a huge pain in the ass especially since I'm not a Chinese speaker.

When I tried using different numbers like Google Voice, etc., none of them went through either. I'm guessing their system detected my IP or something and nixed those as well.

Has anybody ran into this problem before and if so, any suggestions on how to un-fuck this up?

you can't use certain virtual phone services like google to receive texts and auth codes so they're banned, you need to get a new real phone number unfortunately.

Well shit, that's probably why they banned my original phone number then; I tried using the number immediately afterwards without changing my IP address. RIP.

On a random note, is there any way to view an taobao item without signing in? I have the URL thanks to a third party site (ex: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=###########) but I"m using Superbuy to look at the page and it also "helpfully" translates everything using google translate so I have no clue what these options actually mean
>>
>>10762043
Looks like a preorder item.

"Last Paragraph" would be the final payment if you paid deposit,
"Full amount" would be the full payment if you didnt make a deposit
Size
Warning not to pay the full price? (possibly for those who made a deposit, but check with your SS as the item may not actually be available to buy if you didnt reserve it?)
Warning about the items not shipping until June.

That is my guess anyways as translating the translation.

What is the item if you don't mind me asking?

Seconding the "depends on shipping method". I have used ZTO, N&C recently and they both seem to take around 7 days, but I sent something with China Post which finally arrived and it took 35 days just to get to Beijing and to the International depot.

Is Taobao starting to prevent foreign ips from accessing shops/listings? I've been buying directly for years now and for about two weeks now, more and more shops load what seems to be an error at first but in truth is just an image overlay that fakes an error (you actually can view the shop/product normally when zooming out), and it doesn't happen when I use a chinese ip.

In case somebody doesn't believe me, an example of that happening at both a shop and a product:

>>10787373

>>10787177
I have been seeing a few companies limiting their items exclusively to China too. I will click the item and it will just say "not available in your jurisdiction" or along those lines which fair enough, w/e, but what I don't understand is making everything so hard, but then offering a partnered freight forwarding service?

If anyone from New Zealand is browsing, I've been recommended this freight forwarding service by the Chinese businessman father of someone I know (long story)
https://www.nzctlogistics.com/
They seem to be a legitimate company, with an office in Auckland and all that. I signed up today and if anyone is interested will post results once I send the current parcel I'm brewing with my SS to them. Rates are insanely good - a 50x50x50 package that weighs 10kg costs only $50 NZD to ship here and takes 1-2 weeks.

>42agent has been going downhill for about a year now

Damn, really? I've used them a lot till early 2021. Always been great. Since then I've seriously cut down on my purchases bc I already have too much crap. But now I was looking to get my Taoshit fix again. Should I be looking for a new ss? Never paid attention to others since I was happy with 42agent.
>>
>>10791038
I also used 42agent. My last order from them was in October 2021 and it went as smoothly as always but I noticed around early 2022 their website started breaking. I tried starting a new order and their search would give me an error anytime I would put in a link. I got tired of waiting for them to fix it so I switched to sugargoo which has been about as good so far. I miss how easy 42agent's site was to navigate though.
>>
>>10790063
Meeee! I am NZ and will be interested in your experience! I have read mixed reviews from NZ Chinese users about stuff being broken and these guys just not caring and refusing to refund, but if you're just ordering clothing I guess its not an issue. I think it was also these guys I wasn't able to sign up to the website, so I would also love to know if it lets you sign up.

Personally I have been using N&C which also takes between 1 - 2 weeks, but their rates are a bit higher and they charge volumetrically.. Plus they have recently moved everything to WeChat which is a bit of a pain. Taobao itself is now also offering Cainiao to NZ but its coming through Chinz Logistics (also through WeChat) but that works out decently cheap and takes about a week. Their Sea Freight is also crazy cheap but no idea how long the shipping will take.

But yes, I am a dirty traitor of my SS and will happily go to whoever has the best shipping rates, so will be keen to know how it goes for you.
>>
>>10791073
You sound far more experienced with this stuff than me, lol. I'm just getting clothing yeah. I'm not used to using freight forwarding services and because I'm getting something from Xianyu I'm still shopping with my SS then just going to have the package shipped over there. About signing up, I phoned them and the lady I spoke to asked me to add them on WeChat and helped me to sign up there via QR code scanning. So, I can sign in on my phone, but I don't think I can on my PC.

I'll give N&C a go if NZCT doesn't work out, and I'll let you know when my package shows up and how it was.
>But yes, I am a dirty traitor of my SS and will happily go to whoever has the best shipping rates
Me too, the amounts they're charging for shipping is insane and I found that out the hard way last year.

Why doesn't railway shipping show up on shopping services? I'm assuming the rail doesn't come all the way over here

given my poor location what would be the best SS/line for small items + cheapest + no time limit for my frill and weebshit addiction?
I've been using one for years and they've backed me up pretty good even when I lost faith in them, but I got curious in other options
>>
>>10792019
I dunno which SS you’re using but Superbuy recently suspended railway shipping because there’s a huge backlog in China
>tfw shipped 4th June and no updates since

Got some cute makeup, perfume and a crab friend
>>
>>10793194
I have to know, how do you ship perfume to you? I'm in USA, and sometimes I'm able to put a small bottle, but most of the time they confiscate it
>>
>>10793354
Sadly I'm not in the US, I just found a local SS that's experienced with shipping perfumes from China. I believe these restrictions only apply for air cargo, and I live on the same continent, so they must use surface mail. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Oh, I got the perfume recently too but praying it doesn't explode in transit cos the bottle is so cute. There was a great sale recently and I ended up with soooo much extra stuff for free!

>>10794725
They have an official Taobao shop if you're not sure?
https://flowerknows.taobao.com/

>>10794725
I got everything from their official storefront, so I don't see the issue here

>>10794779
>I ended up with soooo much extra stuff for free
That's part of why I finally decided to try their products, they had a really good bundle deal with a bunch of cute extras! Did you get the fig perfume too?
>>

Could I please have a link to the crab? My cousin wants one

>>10795537
Here you go! It says they're an authorized Ahnitol retailer, which looks like it's true judging by the reviews, but if you're not sure you can always get them on their official JP website.

Has anyone tried buying on xianyu before? Seems that is only possible to access it via app.
>>
>>10795856
Yeah it doesn't have web version. If you need to get a link to it you'll have to use the share function in the app.
>>
>>10795856
I have not yet. I'm wary of secondhand stuff, especially that it's coming from the Chinese and would be very difficult to dispute or return.
>>
>>10795856
Bought tons of stuff from Xianyu before, in general the best bet is to have the agent ask for more pics of the item to make sure the pics aren't stolen and you are good to go.

Alternative image search for Taobao:

Put in the image, and then pick "Taobao lite" as option.

Pretty much this, although I have bought tons of stuff without asking for pics first hahaha oops. I haven't had anything go wrong yet but its not a good habit.

What Taobao shop did Lolitain steal this from if the code is “LA9010”? Sorry/thanks — I’m barely smart enough to not buy from Lolitain, not smart enough to successfully reverse search on my own.

I drink alot of bubble tea and would like to get a couple of reusable straws. Will using a silicone one give me cancer or something? I love the colours on these but if it's unsafe I guess there's metal ones too.

I had some shoes like these open around my tabs but I ended up losing all of them and can't find them anymore because taobao got rid of the image search. Anyone knows stores with them (besides lullaby) or better yet some terms for search?
>>
>>10796517
how will you pop the cover with these?
>>
>>10797088
A knife
I decided to get some slanted end metal ones too, I'll just keep these for use at home
>>
>>10797040
why don't you put all the items you're interested in in your cart instead, so that if your tabs close you'll still have them saved?
>>
>>10797090
enjoy the mess. seriously though, most of the shops near me use biodegradable straws made from corn now.

That lace looks so cheap and the socks seem like the type that will get all fuzzy in a few wears, you'll be better off buying some nice torchon lace and DIYing them

This reminds me, a few people have asked where to get that thick, matte type of satin ribbon brands use - here's some I found a while ago for a project

Not sure if its what you had in your cart.. But you can probably use some of the words in these listings to do your search.

Hi! I’ve been out of the loop for a long time so I was wondering if anyone knows a cosplay site on the google docs that can take custom cosplay orders ?
>>
>>10797746
You mean made to reference? None.
>>
>>10797760
oh… I’ve heard of some taobao stores making custom orders a long time ago! I guess I heard wrong?
>>
>>10797746
Custom is such a crapshoot, you get what you paid for and it's pretty much a gamble with Chinese -based stores/sellers/drop shippers. If you have the budget and want quality, communicate with someone who has conversational English skills and understands western customer service standards.

I understand what you mean. I don’t cosplay anymore so it isn’t something I care to throw a ton of money at versus when I did do it often and paid western commissioners for. I have gotten some good cosplays that aren’t intricate from taobao, but again, I get what you mean on a personal level too.

Is there a good way to find factory direct fabric on Taobao? I’m hoping that the original manufacturer might have additional colors. Searching for cloud chiffon is mostly getting me books about cloud computing I think.

solution - find more cute things you don't need
