Does anyone know a Taobao supplier that carries this kind of chain? I found one store that carried it by pure luck, but when I put in an order recently my shopping service alerted me that they were out! I've tried every logical search term I could think of to no avail, so any help would be much appreciated!

Can I get some recommendations for petticoats that look nice with Aatp dresses like pic related? My poofy cupcake petti makes it look overstuffed, a-line looks wrong and my medium cupcake petti makes the dress fit weird at the top part of the skirt.

Yeah, anything helps! I had initially only checked Taobao because I like going direct from the source if I can (99% certain most AE stores mark up prices lol) but so long as the prices are still reasonable, I'm happy to buy! Thanks anon!

The dress is from Little Dipper. It was a preorder thing, but they usually have stock after. The socks are all from MuFish-- they tend to run pretty small, so beware. https://mu-fish.taobao.com/shop/view_shop.htm?user_number_id=69244970

Uhh anon this sort of chain is super easy to make yourself, you just get eyepins and pearl beads in whatever lengths / diameters/ colors you want, and jewelry wire pliers and boom, just bead, twist ends and repeat.
Just putting it out there as an option for you.

My friend and I are doing a taobao order with like 10 pairs of shoes between us. I used a shipping calculate to try and estimate shipping and it's saying $144. Does that sound correct?
>>
Is Pruany very slow for anyone else? It used to take them 1-2 days to ship things out but my last order sat there for 4 days. They used to buy something within a couple hours, now it takes 2 days. I have an urgent purchase and they're just sitting on their asses. Can someone rec me a faster service?
>>
>>9551484
yeah, unfortunately. I got maybe 4 pairs of shoes I'm preparing to ship with other things in one large haul, but I'm using yoybuy because iirc they have up to 50% discount on EMS. good luck anon. sorry about that shipping.

I'm using yoybuy too. It's showing the discount. Originally the shipping was almost $300. Ugh that means $70 a person.
>>
I'm shipping my package via spreenow but they only gave two options this time-
Fedex and China Post EMS.
China post is double the price of fedex. Shipping to the US.
Which do you recommend?
>>
>>9551484
Never understood why people do group orders, especially with shoes
Splitting the shipping is very likely going to be unfair, since some shoes weigh a lot and some are much lighter
If you just split the shipping evenly, somebody is probably paying more than they would have if they made the order themselves
And you cant really calculate the weight beforehand either.
Once I bought a wig that was almost 2 kilos because it was insanely thick, which was not evident in the stock photos
>>
>>9552494
Go with Fedex then.

>>9549881
they're much better now, used tbr instead for a while but now they're my go-to again

Anon, even when I message them during their usual work hours/ reply immediately back, it still takes them that long to reply. I was hoping someone could give me their feedback on a seller with fastest communication that worked for them.

Fucking taobaotrends and their shitty site mishap causing them to not respond to my emails. It's been over a week now since I sent my last email inquiring about shipment of the parcel that supposedly has all items arrived, yet it's just been sat like that with no update.

Any Canadanons know how the ems situation has been recently? Still waiting on one item to arrive for a parcel I need by the 27th and I know canada post has been so all over the place I'm not sure at what point even ems shipping wouldnt be a safe bet anymore.

Despite the backlog on any small untracked packet type things, I've gotten most of my decent sized parcels unreasonably fast recently (had sal parcels unexpectedly arrive within the week!) so I'd assume ems is probably still a safe bet too, but figured I'd check here just in case
>>
>>9556391
I use taobaotrends too and I saw that they had an ugly update recently - is it actually a problem with the site? I want to make a large order but the site looks like some sketchy early-2000s level shit now and when I go to log in google tells me it's not secure.

Also if they're slow now I might go with another SS. Do any anons know that SS that gives you a discount or money off your first order (not buynosaur)?

I never have problems with EMS. I live in the West though, not sure about the East.

Mine shipped last week too, and California is the end destination. Are they just not scanning it in China?

So under the information for the Dva stuff there is another listing that doesn't have any buying options, so I assume is something about a pre-order right? Can anyone help me translate the info graphics at the bottom? Also, since it is on TMall, I'll probably need to use an SS right?

I don't remember the exact name but this is an Infanta petticoat that I bought from a friend. She made a joke about it translating to "violent petti" or something. But if you like the shape I can dig up some more info for you!

(Also excuse the coord, haha. It was really hot and wanted to experiment.)
>>
okay, this is slightly driving me nuts and I'm hoping someone else has a better suggestion.

I'm looking for ribbons with a bit of glitter woven through them, like pic. AP uses them on certain dresses, so I really want them too. The catch is that I want them in 2-2.5cm, and in light pink and light blue. Unfortunately I can't seem to find that combo, like pic related is 4cm wide and doesn't come in pink or light blue.

My search would be easier if I weren't going through 100 pages of "Korean diy ribbon". Thing is, there doesn't seem to be any set kind of word to search for. I've found them (translated) as cotton ribbon, giftwrap ribbon, ribbed ribbon, ribbon ribbon ribbon ..... would really appreciate if someone can tell me how to narrow down the search terms so I'm only looking at this kind of ribbon.

Any ideas?
>>

they take almost a year to order and get my items, they never answered anything, and if they do, it was several weeks later. They forgot to order a lot of stuff, so some of my items were out of stock, I had to be behind them remembering to buy my fucking stuff: then a lot of items came in wrong color/ size . They fucked up everything. And when they shipped my order, they put a different country on address so the order lost. It appears after a year on my house. Mysteries of life...

Calling BS here. Unless you live in bumfuck nowhere but if you paid with PayPal (one of the few services that allow it) you should have had the foresight to give up and request a refund after 3 months. That, or contact your bank. No one forced you to wait the alleged two years.

Does anybody have any experience with Sweet Dreamer dresses? I'm interested in their Jenny lacy dress (at least that's what Google translated it to) especially, but I can't really find any reviews for any of their dresses at all.

What are your gulls' favorite gal/nanchatte/kogal shops? I'm visiting sometime soon and wanted to bulk up my gal wardrobe.

You might have better luck in the aliexpress thread desu, a lot of normie stores carry that millennium pink type of Instagram baddie fashion.

Link to roses, shoes, and socks, please?

Hug Sunshine is my go-to nanchatte shop. Their skirts are pretty light weight but I got some blouses and a vest from them and they were great. The vest was super thick!

Does anyone know where I can find tights or OTKs like pic related? I originally bought them from mu-fish but they don't have them anymore. Searching for white vertical stripe hosiery just gets me BxW stuff or black stripes, never white.
>>
Anyone know a decent store for sm-ish clothing like creepyyeha makes? Can only really find normal looking garter belts and stuff when I look for SM.
>>
Does anyone know what's up with Fantasy Sheep? All their listings are just mysteriously gone.
>>
can any advise me on shipping? i've never had anything shipped from china before. i know ems is generally safest and fastest, also most in this thread seem to use it, but what about the others? usually if i get from japan i can use sal or air without issue, but i know japan and china treat their mail differently. also, i'm in california if that helps and the service i used doesn't give discount shipping. thanks in advance for the help!

There is a searchterm for creepyyeha stuff in the dictionairy.

Sorry in advance if this is spoonfeeding
I'm searching for chocomint/6%dokidoki style metallic star clips(pic related). Some time ago I saw a girl in CoF wearing them,she listed it as a taobao brand,and I found the shop easily,but bc I'm stupid I didn't bookmark it.
If you could find the item I would be really thankful :)

Canadafag here, SAL is usually my go to for taobao orders, especially for big ones. Never had any problems, cheaper, way less likely to get hit by customs and several times recently have been coming way earlier than quoted but that might just be me

Did you try taobao's image search?
>>
>>9569126
I'll try that! But it'll have to be through my desktop bc apparently the mobile version doesn't have an option for china? Only Taiwan and Hong Kong

Thanks for pointing it out.

Has anyone used Glitzy Wonderland's shopping service? I'm extremely tempted by the free shipping and they have good reviews as a reseller.
>>
Does anyone else here use taobao's own forwarding services instead of a third party?

My consolidation/forwarding page is getting pretty cluttered because it shows all the first deposits for the lolita dresses and I was wondering if there's a way to clear them off or at least mark them as digitally delivered. The taobao side shows them all as cleared and the sellers having received their money, it's just the consolidation/forwarding page that has these listed as "waiting for seller". I'm using the 4PX warehouse, if that makes a difference.

Long shot, I know, but hoping someone here can provide an answer, or maybe link me to somewhere else to ask.
>>
>>9569679
I just used them to order a hoop skirt and a bolero in the sale. The shipping wasn't fast but items arrived well packaged and they had marked it down to avoid customs which being in the EU is really appreciated.
I would use them again for ease but only during a sale because that plus free shipping makes the prices bareable.

for future reference, almost all phone browsers have a little "request desktop site" button somewhere in their menu/options for when you need something like that, I use it all the time for taobao searches

Think you can make an imgur with a mini review, interested in quality and what you orderd.
>>
>>9570841
Will do anon. Got pics done but I need to type up prices and reviews on everything.
>>
>>9565731

Anyone using taobao's official consolidate service?
Shipping fee looks pretty reasonable to me, not to mention no agent fees
>>
>>9570819
>supporting replica-makers
anon why
why give them money
>>
>>9570210
I usually just leave it as it is
Makes it easier if I wanna buy the same item again

>>9570819
Even if you're not wearing it for Lolita, it's still really tacky to buy a knockoff
>>
>>9571365
>>9571393
Not denying it's tacky but it was under $20 and shit quality. Not exactly hurting AP with how many MTOs they've done for this thing. It's pretty badly fitted anyway so I'm just going to use the fabric since I can't wear it.
>>
>>9571363
I do all of my orders through taobao cargo. Never had a problem. I would recommend going through a shopping service for preorders though. I had a minor issue with a preorder, but I was able to solve it with the help of google translate. I'll probably pay the extra money for a SS for preorders in the future.
>>
>>9571363

There's me, I guess? >>9570210
I'm located in Asia though.

It's really a warehouse service like Tenso, but even more "cheapskate-r" and more hands-off. There's practically no English helpline, you negotiate and buy things from the shops on your own, and the warehouse doesn't open packages -- consolidation means they throw it all into a larger bag/box and ship that to you. So any returns/refunds are on your own to negotiate, too.

I really don't recommend doing taobao on your own for complicated things like buying made-to-order cosplay. I've used it fine for housewares and some supplies (note: powder, liquid and electric/battery/electronic stuff aren't allowed to be shipped). Lolita is one of those middle-of-the-road things, most of mine I just pick a size and colour and keep checking back for the second payment page so it seems easy enough to handle by itself. Anything more complicated I'd go back to my shopping service to handle it.


>>9571380

Not the purchase history (though weirdly enough I found the delete button for that).

I'm talking about the shipping/consolidation page where you chose what packages you want to ship. With lolita deposits, there's usually nothing to ship -- the dress is mailed when you "purchase" the "tail payment", and I've already received that.

I'm not likely to go back and buy a second deposit for a release that's already closed, and anyhow I can do that much better through my purchase history than my shipping page.

I support replica maker too because i'm poor and they sell stuff from seasons ago. Not wearing lolita though.

i was gonna buy one too for the same reason as I don't want to wear my actual HL for everyday stuff in this heat. Is the quality really that shite?

>inb4 'anon' you shouldnt be supporting replicas. hush and go long your business.
>>
>>9572175
guess for $15 the replica is totally ok
sad that most china shirts have that cheap swimsuit material
