anyone have any search term suggestions or shops for fat cosplayers? whenever i search for cos+ whatever "plus size" term i always get like 1 or 2 results but ive seen random shops with stuff that is either custom OR goes to a huge size
>>
I want to order a cosplay but it won't be ready until the end of May. If I have it shipped via EMS what is the likelihood that it will arrive in Los Angeles before July? I have only ever used SAL before
>>
>>9881260
If you order through EMS it'll take extraordinarily bad luck to not arrive by then.
>>
Didn't see we had a new thread.
Reposting reply.

>>9881260
That's fine with EMS. EMS has, lately, been shipping very fast to CA in general.

I'm in the Bay Area. I had two packages shipped EMS and I got one package in 2 days and my other in 3 days. It only will be delayed if you have something questionable in your package.
>>
Anyone else sick of the "clicking on 'see all' and it asking you to log in" problem?
I'm just trying to browse, bro.
>>
>>9881062
check the spreadsheet for the shops that do custom sizing. some of them are labeled but there's a few in there that do custom sizing that aren't labeled. i haven't figured out a search term for custom sizing yet, so you'll just have to check each store to see if they do it.

I'm losing my fucking mind. I paid freight for 8 items and this is the last updated information I see when I check logistics. I put the provided number onto DHL's website and nothing shows up. I don't know how to contact my courier about this. Did I miss a step? Do I need to confirm receipt for the individual items? Help ;__;

L’s overpriced Taobao SS service based in Sydney but no longer taking orders from people in NSW. Funny that, might be a carry on from Syd comm drama.
>>
>>9881318
i’m in LA and my end packages have been taking 10 days, so you might just be lucky

Okay nevermind I think it just got stuck in customs and I was worrying about nothing because the tracking information just updated today. What a relief..

Submitted a small order because I've never really done Taobao before... If all goes well I'll probably do a larger one. This is less than 50$ worth of stuff.
>>
>>9881951
>less than $50 worth of stuff

I should hope so. If you paid over $20 for all of this then you really need some assistance with Taobao.
>>
>>9881958
I think the total is like 14$ before shipping, which will hopefully be cheap since this order will weigh practically nothing.
>>
>>9881971
Shouldn't be too bad. $20 at the most depending on the method.
>>
What does this mean? Is the item only available to VIP users?
>>
>>9882531
naw just ask your SS, they can buy it
>>
I'm retarded and can't seem to find any store selling the glitter ver of the Love Live! Aquarium costumes. Anyone happen to have a link?
>>
>>9882531
That's a "vip customers get a ~special~ price"
>>
Does anyone know where else to get these dupes? They're sold out on the store pictured and "find similar" brings up nothing
>>
anyone else having a problem with shops not loading? search pages and item listings work just fine but the shops take too long to respond and i get the same timed out error. i heard that everything but shops are run on the world.taobao servers. is this the issue?
>>
>>9883381
I've been having that issue on occasion, but I thought it was just my internet connection.
>>
More experience Taobao-ers; If I place an order through SpreeNow on friday, is that enough time for the items to arrive and be shipped to me before June 2?

I know that part of it is up to luck of the draw, but I was hoping for a better answer than 'EMS takes 5-8 days'
>>
>>9883409
It could take 24-48 hours for your items to be bought and 3-10+ days for items to arrive. Then on top of that the 24-48 hours it takes to ship your package and then the time it takes to arrive to you.
>>
Maybe a bit of a stretch, but does anyone know of shopping services that are like just one person who's completely fluent in English? I need to make a custom order. I know a long time ago there was a woman that was running like a one-woman SS operation (poodle something I think?). I'm not worried about the higher fees.
Basically, I'm bald now and interested in getting a full lace wig made and I don't trust the English capabilities of my current SS (taobaoring)
>>
>>9883496
MMmmkay, so I should probably look into some backup plans for an upcoming meet. Thanks!
>>
Anyone not getting second hand items to load? I've changed mine to global and china mainland and it loads on china but not as much as I was thinking would be for sale
>>
>>9883550
Dollypoodle hasn't done SS stuff in years.

Unsure if she still does it but the other one was celestial...delinquent? Something like that.
>>
>>9883550
are you talking human hair full lace wig? if that's the case i'd honestly suggest going on aliexpress.
>>
>>9883550
Bhiner has the best English speaking people I’ve dealt with. You could can even message them on Facebook and they’ll help you with whatever.
>>
>>9883550
There's one called Chinese Lolita Updates that seems to be a personal SS.
>>
>>9884140
See I originally planned to go through Ali but the English capabilities of the sellers was really lacking so I was hoping to hire someone fluent in English and Chinese
>>
>>9884310
I can understand that. I've had pretty decent back and forth with Dreaming Queen and Eva wigs if that helps?
>>
Does anyone know which taobao shop syndromestore uses to get their lingerie pieces??
>>
>>9883550
Chinese Lolita Updates is really good and Loki Doki Doki Taobao Shopping services.
>>
>>9881321
I'm having this problem suddenly. Anyone have a solution? I'm trying to browse through this store to see if they have a better color wig but I keep getting asked to log in.
>>
>>9885443
have you tried doing an image search?
>>
>>9885807
You might have to create a Taobao account.
>>
>>9885807
just open taobao in an incognito mode browser. works for me
>>
>>9884950
Hey if you could link those stores that'd be great, how's the wig quality?
>>
Paranoid newbie here, I'm using yoybuy.
When I do a pre-order, is the last thing I'm supposed to see "the item is processing/the item is purchasing" until it fully arrives?
I want to know if they actually got through with it or not.

This is the sequence for them.
>>
>>9887239
This is if the item is available to get from the get-go though, isn't it? I'll assume it hasn't been "bought" if it's a pre-order I guess.
>>
What's the keyword for breast padding? The dictionary keyword doesn't show correct products.
>>
>>9885861
Yes lol
All I get are more storenvy shops
>>
>>9887646
I think anon meant an image search on taobao itself
>>
>>9888242
sorry, misclick, oops.
I've had this jane marple skirt for a real long time now. I've never found a shirt or blouse that i feel looks good with it.
can any of you taobao fiends help me find something? i've been looking, all i ask is for sleeves.
sorry for the dark picture.
>>
>>9883550
Celestial Delinquent was really good when I used her service years ago. She speaks perfect English and has a fast response time.
>>
What do they mean by skirt length? how do I measure how long do I need? I'm 5'7.
>>
>>9888314
It means how long the skirt is, usually waist to bottom. It's hard to say without seeing the whole listing how long you'll need it.

Might not be your style but I'd wear a frilly crop blouse with it
Something that makes it like seem more street wear.

Anybody have an order on the way?
>>
>>9887035
https://dreamingqueenhairtopquality.aliexpress.com/store/1130153

https://evahair.aliexpress.com/store/1844012

I havent had the chance yet to order from Dreaming Queen but I have this one from Eva: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Short-Lace-Front-Human-Hair-Wigs-For-Black-Women-Brazilian-Remy-Bob-Wig-With-Baby-Hair/32805353901.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.f5004c4dx0IAZv

I've since taken it apart it reconstructed it as the cap was a touch too small and the hair looks different now after I deep con'd it but just from experience remember that you get what you paid for, especially if you're ordering non-remy hair.

In it's original state, the hair's pretty soft and the wig is constructed well enough. It's pretty much a 360 wig as the lace goes all around but by god does this damn thing shed! I want to say it's because the tracks are single wefted so the hair isn't that secure. Also it's 130% density but it's thin. I now see that they're offering it in a 150% density and virgin hair so there's that.

I've also had a good experience hair wise with Gossip. I can't tell you how there are communication wise as it was my mum who originally ordered the wig but I don't remember her complaining about them. I got her 360 curly wig, the hair was good, minimal shedding, etc. Too bad my sister stole the wig. I'm still mad about that lol.
>>
>>9881649
Nani the fuck is going on here? I'm not an established member of the comm by any means, but this seems pretty retarded and i can't quite understand why she'd do this.
>>
>>9889058
*vibrates* Half of my stuff is in and checked.
>>
Does anybody happen to know approximately how long SouffleSong usually takes to ship to the SS for items that are in stock?
>>
>>9889640
>*vibrates*
Little tip for you in the future. Don't do that.

looking for something else but stumble across this

Forever, anon. You'll never get your shit.
>>
>>9890523
Oh god, for real? It's the only item holding my order back. Maybe I should stick it in a separate shipment or something.
>>
>>9880689
anyone got some shops they shop at in general? The list needs updating

That's my friends birthday present sorted thanks anon
