I know it's probably a bad idea, but would it be possible to get a gun prop through customs? I'm too lazy to make my own ak-47 for a cosplay and found a cheap one on Taobao, but I'm not sure if it'll be allowed.

What is “secret Shop” on Taobao? I see people talking about it, but any links I’ve found have been dead. I asked in the stupid questions thread but didn’t get an answer. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
>>
>>9755220
It used to be a Taobao shoe "shop" where only distributors could order the actual shoes. Otherwise, it looked like a shop that just sold socks to the average shopper. They used to have really nice (better than Antaina imo) tea parties and other lolita shoes. Idk what happened to it though.
>>
>>9755199
absolutely not, they won't even send fake overwatch guns or nier swords, much less real gun replicas.
>>
>>9755246
Not true; I got my D.VA gun prop through (US) customs and it was the one with lights, wiring, laser, and functions as a battery pack. My SS told me that they were packaging it separately, filing the paperwork for it, but weren't responsible if it didn't make it through customs though. It was a risk that worked out.

If you're looking at gun replicas, trying to by from aliexpress is much easier and safer + higher rate of getting stuff through customs.

Can Little Dipper's underskirts be used as regular skirts? I've been looking for a solid black skirt for a while and I've only ever liked the look of theirs, but I'm worried they might be too thin and see-through to wear on their own.

Does anyone know of shops with cute lolita skirts in rn? I'm slowly realizing that skirts are exactly my shit and I want to stock up when that income tax refund hits my bank, but last time I looked almost nowhere had any, or they were super sweet and pastel.

How often do you guys haul, and how much do you guys spend on each haul? How much do you guys spend before you feel like the package is "worth" it?

>>9761178
I haul 2 or 3 times a year and spend at least $200-$300 before shipping. I usually get 15-20 things to make it worth it.

Whats the chinese term for clothing storage covers? Direct translations only give me nonsense.
>>
>>9759563
I owned the black shoes in white and the platform separated from the shoe after 3 wears.
>>
>>9761178
I haul about 3-4 times a year, usually when there's major sales. Each order is about 300-400$. How many items kind of varies per order depending on what I'm buying. (I get more batches of art supplies than cosplay or lolita stuff, for instance).
>>
>>9761178
My hauls are usually $800+
Currently I'm at $1200
I'll haul maybe 4-5 times a year
I just keep throwing shit into an order until some preorder shit I'm waiting on finally gets in
>>
>>9761178
Around $75 for my first order, and funnily I paid almost as much for the shipping ($60).
I'm testing out waters before hauling my important stuff that I want to get in a timely manner. The package took one day and one night to get to EU, and has been stuck in customs since Thursday morning. I cannot say I'm satisfied…
$650 worth of stuff still waiting at SS (or is on its way). At that point I think I will send it to my parents in a different country, where the post works more efficiently, and then get them to ship it to myself.
>>
>>9761178
Usually 1-4 times a year and never under $300 so at least 5kg worth of clothing.
I would want to buy more but oftent I feel like it's just a waste because I can't wear all clothes every day anyway n just invest into skin care/make up/ hair etc.
>>
>>9761178
Usually once a month or once every two months. I tend to let things run over for a month or two so I can make a larger order. My hauls tend to be around $100-200.

So I'm ordering some crafting supplies and one of the items I bought are pearl powders. I got a message from Spreenow saying the powders might not pass through customs because apparently there are restrictions on sending powders internationally via air.

>>9764205
CSSbuy and Superbuy are the most popular for low shipping fee (using css rn, they pretty quick with ordering - their english a bit eh tho)

If you look for something with more customer support go for ytaopal, they reply quick, take good pics and shipping is okish.

Know some gulls here use Taobaoring as well but no experience with them yet.
>>
>>9764205
I have experience with both Ytaopal and Superbuy. SB is better if you don't need fluent English service and are just ordering general items without any custom measurements. Ytaopal is better if you are ordering items that you want to be very sure of the measurements of, for example I ordered a cosplay with them with specific detailed measurements and a request for a different length skirt and they were able to get it done without any issues. They're more expensive, but you get good service, good quality control photos, and fluent english in return. Superbuy messed up my order when I was attempting to purchase that cosplay in that the seller refused to sell to them, but didn't tell me there was an issue until I went and asked their customer support team.
>>
>>9764212
it's not a big order, maybe 5/6 items.
I've never heard of cssbuy, but using superbuy is
like digging your own grave if you're in Canada.
>>
>>9764205
Taobaoring is good if you need someone who's really going to understand English and isn't going to fuck up your custom shit or preorders. But like Ytaopal they're a little more expensive.

the minimum ss fee for them counts per international shipment (so everything you get them to stuff in a box together, regardless of whether they were initially purchased at the same time or not), and is only charged when they charge your intl shipping
>>
>>9765107
Yikes that face shoop

I doubt it. I looked up the chinese lolita database and there was nothing similar to it.

So I'm planning on buying a ton of small items for diy resin shit. Bezels, glitter, holo film etc. I'm planning making sure I buy at least maybe 10 items from each shop so I'm not buying one tiny thing here any there but what's the chances that the service I use is going to lose at least half of it?
I've bought on taobao plenty before, but only shit like clothes and accessories (and things have definitely been lost). I've seen a lot of craft stuff on resale sites like sophie & toffee but for stupid markups so I was trying to avoid that.
If anyone had experience with buying this kind of shit and sharing how it went I'd appreciate it.

They're pretty much what you would expect for the price, cheap taobao boots. I'm only going to be using them for cosplay so I don't mind. They don't have any padding in them so an insole is going to be necessary. I wouldn't recommend them for big legs or wide feet, since there's no zipper and they're a tad narrow.
>>9767397
Tights: https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=44255805852
Typical lace tights you find on taobao. They have quite a bit of stretch.
Mint sweater: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=562389436194
Good sweater. Very comfortable and warm. Smelled a little funky at first but the smell came out. It's not going to fit like a sweater dress unless you're short though. The sleeves are also a tad short. I'm 5'6.5" for reference.
Cape: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=562598830412
Took forever to come in but it's really nice. Very warm with a fur lining all the way through, not nearly as shiny as in the stock photos. The bow on the front is pre-tied and can be buttoned on to the cape, but there's regular ties to close it too. The one thing I'm not impressed with are the hooks to close it, they're on kind of weird and not so easy to hook closed.

>>9767481
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=36638313280
I have some pros and cons:
Pros:
>looks not too shiny unless it's in real bright light.
>it's heat treatable
Cons:
>slightly darker than the stock photos but that's to be expected
>supposed to be straight, was very wavy out of the bag and took half an hour of battling with my straightener to get the bangs and front pieces into a less mangled shape
>the cap shows through on one side (though I'll be taking the braids out so this might cover it up)
>immediately got kind of staticky (though again this might have been my fault since I tried it on with a sweater)
Overall it's alright but unless you want to deal with restyling a wig I'd skip on it.
>>
>>9767492
Thank you! Also, the fuck? Does that mean it's not available at the moment?
>>

Finally got around to trying on the dresses from >>9760130
and out of all the dresses this cheap generic one that I thought might be a flop is actually my favorite! I kept seeing the models wear this little cincher with it and I'm so glad I got one. The difference is pretty cool.

>Dolly Cross Hospital by Midsummer
Comes in black/white, JSK or nurse OP.

Okay this one was of decent weight and has two layers to it. One is the print layer and the other is an underskirt? layer that you see at the bottom. They're connected in two spots on the sides. (I think I posted pics earlier when it arrived?)
I'm wearing two deflated pettis that I had on hand with this because I haven't gotten around to replacing them yet. Most of the print is hidden because of that.
Definitely regretting not getting the matching nurse hat from the shop so if anyone wants this, definitely get the matching hat

>Night Witch by Lemon Honey

This one I got for a Halloween coord and then it arrived mid Nov to early December, somewhere along there.

This one was the one I was least pleased with. It's one layer and pretty lightweight (in a bad way) even if the bodice and the waist ties are velvet material. I also couldn't find the zipper on this damn thing until time to take it off because it was so well hidden. It has pockets though!
This one was the shortest of the dresses and my pettis kept dropping out from under it which you can see in the pic.
The dress is just overall kinda cheap feeling which sucks because the print is adorable and I wanted another witch coord (especially with my collapsable hat, best 2-month wait ever for that thing).

Yeah, if you love the print maybe get it but to me it's basically what you think of when you think "Oh, it's a Taobao dress..."
This definitely could have benefited from what the Hospital dress did by adding a separate layer under it.
>>
>>9770122
Wow it looks nothing like the pic. Also it’s not that generic it’s a Atelier Boz knock off. The clincher looks like something from a Halloween store, definitely is the price point there.
>>
>>9770440
Didn't know it was an AB knockoff. I've been seeing this everywhere on Taobao and usually their knockoffs are print-based so it never crossed my mind. That's a little awkward now..
And yeah, it's a cheap cincher with velcro in the back. I bought it as a cosplay though so I don't mind. Especially since it's so easy to put on and remove without messing with the laces.

The model photo is shooped to hell and back but the stock photo does look closer to mine.
>>
>>9770445
The AB one is similarly frumpy and you can see the design is the same. Even details like the shirring straps and zipper in the back are the same.

Not that I care personally what you buy but just to be aware it’s a knock off. I also have seen it all over and the girl isn’t modeling the taobao dress she is on insta and was wearing AB
>>
>>9770450
Thanks for the heads up! I honestly had no idea and I try not to buy replicas. Taobao makes it a little tricky with the non-print ones because after a while some dresses become widespread generic that every shop has so no one calls it a replica or anything. While actual replica sellers are bold enough to put the print/dress name in their listings to get customers.
>>
I looked through a few of the guides in the OP and tried to do some googling too (no luck), but does anyone here have a -rough- estimate of how long shipping from a shop to an SS warehouse takes? I'm sure it varies by SS and location too, but I wanted to know how long I should expect to wait before it'll get there.
>>
>>9770682
Usually 2-3 working days given you don't run into any holidays, shipping within China is super fast. The bigger variable is how long the shop takes to ship things out and if there's a delay on the item (made-to-order, out of stock, pre-order, etc.)
>>
>>9770696
Thanks! I wasn't sure if it'd be super fast or super slow. I already got everything quoted beforehand by my SS and ordered it this past weekend, so hopefully everything should get to them within the next day or two. I know I'm cutting it close, but I'm hoping to make it before everything shuts down for Chinese New Year.
>>
>>9770450

I'm so glad people are calling out design replicas now. Last time I called out an MM replica other anons are like "chill it's just a design replica~~~~~". Yeah, only one of their most iconic and unique designs. Thank goodness that attitude fell out fast.

Your SS could have an address somewhere (contact page, footer). Then you check it up on Wikipedia to see in which province and prefecture it is, and how all are written using Chinese characters. On Taobao there's a shipping estimate right under the price, and you can select where it's supposed to ship to, to know the date.
For my order last week, two packages took 2~4 days to reach SS, but boots from Angelic Imprint arrived only today, after about 7~8 days. Kinda accurate, considering the page said they would take 7 days to come.
There are also things like pre-orders. For these I'm already waiting few weeks (since full payment), even if the full listing already appeared and I ordered and paid on the first day. I originally pre-ordered in November.

Oh, and also check your SS's main page, they might mention somewhere when they close. It can be as early as early February. Mine closes on the 6th already, and doesn't make new orders since the 1st.

It's not too bad. It's a bit lighter than in the stock photo. I am going to make a few modifications to it such as making it more formfitting, switching out the braids for thicker ones, and adding interfacing to the hood so the weight of the ears doesn't make it flop, but those are more because I want to elevate it than those things being bad. The sleeves are well stuffed and have little invisible zippers inside so you don't end up limiting your hands, so that's nice. It does up with velcro in the front.
Tl;dr it's not the worst cosplay I've ordered off of taobao and it's not the best, but it was made quickly (in a week vs 3 months like the last cosplay I ordered) and only needs a few modifications.

No complaints about this one except for it smelling kind of weird. Apart from that it's soft and comfortable.

It hits me just at my hips (5'6").

All I wanted to do was browse taobao for cute storage goods and found an amazing store but the items wont load without the stupid captcha issue.
Here's the store so I can live vicariously through you gulls:

Works fine for me? Try clearing your history/cookies and then log into your Taobao account.

To Alice keeps getting blocked by captchas for me. Anyone else having this issue and how to solve it?

>>9783215
The only real solution I've found for the captchas is to clear your cookies/browser history.

I want to get some Hanfu and was trying to find some cool modern-looking men's designs but I can't help but feel the hakama-looking thing is more feminine in a Chinese context. Anyone know where I can get advice about this?

Any gull ever got sex toys off taobao?
I'm tempted to sin and add one to my cute clothes order
>>
>>9785151
enjoy your lead poisoning
...seriously though I wouldn't buy cosmetics, ingestibles, or sex toys from taobao
>>
Does anyone who uses spreenow find they can't log in at all?

Please don't stick that stuff up your hooha, anon

Please invest in safe sex toys
>>
>>9785151
Got a collar with leash, eye mask, two bondage ropes, set off wrist and ankle cuffs, some kind of spanking bat, and a gag ball.
Collar and cuffs are made of faux leather with faux fur on the inside. Both the fur and ropes are soft and really pleasant.
All items appear to be totally fine. I don't think I will enjoy the gag ball, but it's made of hard plastic and doesn't smell, so I assume it's safe for moderate fun.

If my SS didn't fuck up, I would also already have another collar, with two chains and nipple clasps, but it appears they forgot to package it, and I can't get any more info until the end of CNY.
I'm not sure how I would feel, if it's in the other package, that heads to my parents home (better post, less pedantic customs), that I want them to repackage and send to me…

I wouldn't risk with things that you put inside yourself. Maybe if it's glass or metal, but then still would be very careful.
Better get them locally, or from Japan for some specific toys.

can anyone help out with what this means?

google translates it to "if you use flower chanting please see page details"

We should use the safety list from the Aliex thread so we stop having to answer this shit
>>
>>9785492
Looked up the flower chanting in Chinese on google and it almost sounds as if it is for if you're paying for the product in installments? It says to look at the page for details so probably scroll and see what payment options there are in the item description?

Do you guys like ghostcos or Lucaille better?

Not really sure which wig I should get, color difference isn't too big of a deal, but idk which one would be better quality.

https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=14913702782
or
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-c-s.w4002-16861156169.106.fa283b1f878r4g&id=38619095892
>>
>>9785849
Lucaille is very hit or miss imo, of the 2-3 wigs I've gotten from them I've had problems with small wig cap and netting showing in the back/thin wefts. But when they get it right, they get it right.

Ghostcos is usually a safe bet, their wigs are reliable and good for the price but not wow-tier.
>>
>>9785784
Thank you, anon, that makes sense.
>>
>>9785951
Really? I've always had the opposite problem with lucaille in terms of thickness. Their wigs are always so thick and big on top that it looks... unnatural and weird.
>>
>>9786008
Agreed, I got a chihiro from DR wig from them and the top was so thick and heavy! It made my head look stupidly big.
>>
I love that there's a larme section on the Taobao store sheet! That being said, what's the Chinese word for the fashion? Or should I use alternative words from the dictionary?

Has anyone ordered clothes from Infanta? If so, what was the quality like?
>>
>>9786454
I've not bought from them but a shop in London carries them so I've seen them up close. Very wrinkled and the fabric has a very polyester look. The trims seem cheap too. But I am a bit of a brandwhore so my opinion may be skewed.

I paid for shipping and Pruany sat on it and finally created a label right when CNY started. Needless to say, won't be using them again. I don't pay EMS so my package can sit for 3 weeks. They fucked up once before by ordering wrong colors of things and then arguing about refunding the correct amount. They're also slow as hell
>>
>>9786454
Their shirts are nice and their velvet is lovely, but the fabric their normal jsks are made of is pretty awful, like >>9786539 says.
>>
>>9769797
i brought some velvet platforms from them around 2 years and they were impossible to walk in, the platform was just a flat solid piece of wood made them heavy and didn't let my feet sit right
>>
>>9778179
They don't have a lot of sizes but they look similar.

Reaching out to fellow gulls who struggle with big heads. I'm looking for a beret that will fit me (head size is about 60cm). Did you have any success looking for them on taobao?

Hello! I recently chanced upon this store (https://tyakasha.world.tmall.com/shop/view_shop.htm?shop_id=70359330) and I'm really in love with their style! Apparently it's an independent designer based in Shanghai.

Does anyone know any Taobao stores with a similar look to this? I'd be really grateful!

E1 - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=551882911499 - I love this hat! Really nice quality. Has hair combs installed in the bottom, as well as a removable ribbon. I'm just not crazy about the weird flower gap in the front, but its not a huge deal.
D4 - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=537873520933 - I really love these shoes, but when I got them (and the white pair I got), the straps were insanely long. It made it impossible to walk in them, and it looked insane. I had to poke my own holes in them to make them fit. They fit great now, but I'm not sure why the straps were laughably long?

>>9787687
They are actually shower caps! They work really well, too. I've been using the Kuromi/My Melody one for a week, and the image hasn't faded or chipped yet.

>>9787713
E5 - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=558821593039 - These bloomers are AMAZING! Really great quality for the price. They are made of cotton and have really nice lace. Perfect for old school.

>>9788166
F1 / F2 - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=27741724 - I'm surprised with how nice these are. I had low hopes, but the quality is pretty good. The lace is really soft and fluffy, and the socks themselves are like a stretchy tights material. I got them for more daily wear, when I don't want to ruin my nice raschel socks.

>>9788345
B5 - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=542120829462 - Really nice quality! I was hoping the fur was a little softer, but its still really pretty. I got it to wear over this pink coat I have. It also has loops around the inside, so you can attach it to buttons on a coat.

>Sorry about the delay! I was out of town for a couple days.
