I've never bought anything from a preorder on taobao before, only ready-made items, but I really want to grab a dress that will be coming out soon.
There's no need for me to keep checking if the dress is ready, I'll just get a message from SS when the shop lets them know it's done and the second payment is due, right? Are there any SS who DON'T allow preorder items?

What does this mean? It only appeared for some of my items as an option under the "refund, complain business" area. "Virtual lift counter price" doesn't mean much to me...and I'm afraid I'm suppose to do something before the seller ships. When I click into it though it looks like it's area to "report" something.

>> No.9693964

Just in case the explanation is a little confusing.. from what it sounds like it's when a seller has a 'sale' and the price of the sale is more than what it was before the sale. Like price inflation.

Brand looks better imo, I know what I'll get and has a better resale value.
Also, I hate dealing with Taobao Agents and their weird hidden fees. Did it once with a 'reputable' agent for a classical puppets petticoat and it was such a hassle. Communication was horrible and they took so long to ship it out even when everything was paid for.

I've been eyeing the AP shoes for a long time and they looked beautiful and sturdy in person when I was in Shinjuku. To me it is money well spent.

What's up with AliExpress? Do some stores list items from Taobao stores?
For example this cosplay, besides there being many uglier version on AliExpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item//32821689768.html
The pictures are cut. The cosplay is really well made, which makes it easily recognizable.
This is what I believe to be the original, the store ran pre-orders, and all designs came from here first: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=561038674471
Do some AliExpress stores serve as an SS, or are they using stolen pictures to sell fake stuff?

Anyone have tips on what size to pick when buying a cosplay outfit?

My measurements feels kinda out of reach as compared to the charts the sellers provide.
Is it okay if I just give them the measurements I had or pick one of the sizes because looser might be better or something.

I'm super skinny and my measurements are like 72 waist, 78 bust and like 175cm in height

>> No.9695376

forgot to add that, when I used to buy normal clothing from taobao, I would always pick one size larger and they came perfect because China clothings are always small for some reason

Not so sure about cosplay outfits

>> No.9695404
File: 1.21 MB, 750x1535, size-eng.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google]

Really depends on what kind of cosplay it is.
If it has sleeves or legwear that could be too short if wrongly sized (and look bad), go with one that is closer to your height, probably L/M male or XL female.
You can always make it tighter with safety pins or some sewing, but you won't make it longer. And also never take perfect/just barely fit, because you might gain weight, eat big dinner, and will feel really tight in the clothes, they won't look as good, and the measurements might be inaccurate. Always get yourself 2~5 cm of safety.

For example I'm your height, b/w/h 82/65/84, and I went with one size, small sizes, and M size. I aimed for fit, as most of these clothes are dresses which are not long to the ground, the sleeves aren't meant to be too long either.
On most of these clothes the differences in lengths are also really small, the biggest appearing in the middle blue one, 6 cm sleeve and 9 cm pants between S and XL.

I think there's little need to be worried if you go one size below your height to get a better fit.

But please take my advice with a grain of salt, as I don't have my cosplays yet, so I cannot say how they will fit in reality. It's more of a hint to give you an overview on how particular parts of clothes differ in sizes.

I don't know about other clothing, but you probably meant one letter size bigger (e.g. S -> M, M -> L, L -> XL). I think it's better to look at the measurements, than at the letters, if they are available.

My order came in today so I'm going to review some stuff. I ordered with taobaoring and ems shipping. TBR were as good as they always are for me and my package arrived in my country quickly although customs decided to hold on to it for almost a week. Fortunately TBR marked the package down so I only had to pay a small fee.

>Strawberry OTKs: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=25801368876
Decent and reasonably thick socks. The design is a bit blocky but overall cute
>Ballet OTKs: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=18158422592
Same as the strawberry ones; thick and a bit blocky but cute. The white is definitely offwhite rather than pure white.
>Lace ankle socks: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=18797442148
I've bought these before but decided to get some more because they're a good staple. The pink is very vibrant.

Diamond Honey:
>Blouse: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=546270921818
I also wanted this blouse in pink and the long-sleeved version in pink too but they were sold out when I ordered. Came very wrinkled and in need of a good steaming. Quality is OK for the price and there were a few loose threads. I tried it on briefly without a bra and realized that it would look very sexy pair with some lacy underwear because the fabric is slightly clingy. It also felt quite static-y when I took it off.
>Socks: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=548440997656
I took a bit of a gamble with these because another anon a few threads back had some in red with color bleeding. Mine arrived without any noticeable bleeding although I wouldn't say the print is very sharp. They are quite soft though and I can see them becoming a staple for me.

>Headdress: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=558335033931
>Wristcuffs: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=558450843776
I have some dresses with dusty pink in them so I decided to grab these. They are slightly more peach in color but not too noticeably. The headdress has a single comb hot glued to the middle which I'm not too keen on. The material is soft and the details are nice although the lace is not the highest quality. It also feel slightly long compared to my other rectangle headdresses. The little star charm on the wristcuffs is nice. Note that to get a pair of wristcuffs you have to order two.

>Cardigan: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=558492677457
Very thick and chunky. I like them a lot and wish I'd ordered more colors. I would say they're slightly a bit too stout. The bows are detachable by a flimsy little pin and look a bit sad though.

>Bag: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=8906742851
Better than I expected. Just enough detail not to be boring but not so much that it's too busy. The lace detail on the front is actually a small pocket. The zip feels sturdy and it's a reasonable size. I think however this bag might be a replica?

Just a warning for those using the taobao US forwarders: Jiacheng has better customer service, but they don't open the packages to make sure everything is there. Zhongshan will open your packages to make sure all the items are there, but their customer service is the worst.

I think it depends on who you get?

I used aliwangwang or the taobao chat. I used zhongshan for over two years btw, and I consistently made orders that were over 20kg every month. Their customer service was bad almost every time there were any issues. They would weigh multiple items wrong and take 3+ days to update the right weight, but they wouldn't update it in the system, only update the price afterwards when I was about to pay. They also made me pay for shipping twice when I had an item that was larger than normal. Like I had already paid for my shipping and was waiting for it to ship out, then realized from tracking that the package didn't move for over a week. So i asked them why and they said I had to pay more shipping since the original payment that was listed on the website didn't cover it. They didn't make any attempt to message me about this btw, despite the fact that they could easily message me on aliwangwang about it.

So most of my orders have arrived at the Zhongshan express warehouse, but apparently there's an issue with my Cats Tea Party order. According to google translate and my awful Chinese, I think something's missing from the order. I'm sending a message in both Chinese and English to Zhongshan, hopefully they can tell me what's up.

Has anyone had this problem before?
For reference, this is the message:

>> No.9700971

Yep, it's missing an item and you have to contact them. Good luck, because they've been shit at resolving things for me. You'll likely have to contact the seller yourself to figure things out.

>> No.9701787

I think I had something similar in my last order. I checked in with Zhongshan to see what was up and basically something is missing from the package (they even took a picture of the package to clearly show me what was missing) so they told me to contact the seller. The seller ran out of stock of something and asked me if I wanted to replace it for the same item in a different color or to just get a partial refund. The seller guided me through the steps of applying for a partial refund and it was settled fairly quickly. Luckily for me the seller had better English than Zhongshan lol so the process went by fairly smoothly.

I had to contact the seller through the messenger app and after I downloading it and I realized that they had actually sent me a message about the missing item before shipping it.

Just wondering if you know, but does Zhongshan still send out by EMS? Or is it only DHL now? I tried asking but they kept telling me it's "random" and I tried to inquire about who decides if it is "random" but I haven't been able to get a clear answer.

>> No.9701810

It's still random. I think they weigh the item (EMS) and measure it (DHL) and whichever one is cheaper is the one they send it by.

Sorry for the late replies!

Heart Breaker Pullover: It is HUGE. Like... insanely large. It didn't seem to be that oversized to me in the photos, so I was unpleasantly surprised. I'll probably wear it to bed or sew it into something more flattering to me.

Tight Skirts: I got this in both colors and really like them! They are really cute. I'm 5'6" and 120lb and it is almost too small for me though, so definitely not advised for anyone bigger than 25in waist.

Miu Shop: It's nice! The items all came in a timely manner and were good quality. Some of them smelled plastic-like and one was larger than I anticipated, but I'm happy nonetheless. Can't beat it for the price.

Magic Circle/Open Shoulder Sweater: It's from miub.taobao.com. I was surprised because only one of the shoulders is cut out, not both! I don't really mind since I like asymmetrical details myself, but make sure to look at the listing closer than I did if you're picky. It's definitely thin and not very good for keeping you warm, but it looks cool and the print is crisp!

Anyone knows where to buy a good 2B (NieR) cosplay? I know there are a bunch of them, but do you have any shop recommendation?

>> No.9717514

They suck. Soak them in fabric softener for like, 3 weeks at a time and you'll see some results. I got a boleyn girl that was majorly fucked up and they said they'd send me another one (and their replies took forever, even after I showed proof), but as soon as paypal's 180 day protection ran out, they ceased contact. Fuck dreamholic, honestly. This was like, 2 years ago, maybe? I've never heard of them doing this to anyone else though, so hopefully melva just fucked me over, no one else. I don't think they make scamming a regular thing.
Also I've had better quality wigs from ebay and aliexpress, no joke. I only have one wig from dreamholic that's okay.

Also their stock photos and colour swatches are notoriously terrible. I ordered 3 wigs, one of which was meant to be blonde, and it was positively ginger. That was the worst, but another was meant to be medium/light brown, turned out to be dark brown. My boleyn girl that was fucked up was meant to be ash blonde and it was grey with black roots. I shit you not. She defended it by saying 'the colours may look different on your screen than irl'... not that bloody different! I've not really said anything about it until now but I've noticed them getting recommended more than usual and I'd like to make sure people don't get fooled by their pretty stock photos. A lot of people say they're good or mediocre, but I'd never buy from them again.

>> No.9717829

That sucks, sorry you had to deal with that. I have several of their wigs and so far I've only had positive experiences. I actually don't see them get recommended that much now (I only see people mention them to say they're meh or that they got defective products like yours), but honestly... I really like them. I find the colors really pretty and more or less accurate in real life, plus the wig caps actually fit me and they're not overly full. This is just my two cents based on my experience so far though.

Agreed on the fabric softener. You really do need to treat them or else they're too shiny. I don't soak mine for 3 weeks though, so maybe I've fucked up.

>> No.9717830

I should have come out and said it back then, but I was worried that I'd be 'that girl' or people wouldn't believe me (even with proof pics). I honestly would just recommend to people to get stuff off similar taobao stores if they like the look of dreamholic wigs, because the good dreamholic wigs I've seen always seem to be as good as (or subpar to) taobao lolita wigs.
Then again, I'm obviously an outlier, as I've never heard of other people getting scammed as bad as I did, which is a good thing at least. I'm glad yours turned out alright. The wig caps are good though, I'll give them that.

>> No.9717984



This is Japanese for ivory, not white.

Expect about 90% of taobao stores to send you something in light yellow instead of ivory, though. Not an issue if you're strictly 100% taobaolita, but if you're buying it to match japanese burando, don't bother.

>> No.9717985

It's safer than such recommendations seem to make it.
If you buy from respectable stores, with many reviews, then you have little to worry about.

China still has many regulations on what can be certified for contact with food, and what can have contact with skin (cosmetics, etc.).

Sex toys are a little more tricky, internationally, not only from China (not to mention the fact that China products have 70% of global market), as there are no regulations in any country about them.

All in all, I believe it's safe to use ball gags from China, as long as the store looks respectable and specializes in this kind of stuff. Not some "mom and pop we sell everything from nearby factories" store, as they might not check their products for quality and safety.

Has anyone applied for a refund on taobao before and the other party not respond?

I chatted with the forwarder beforehand to ask for a partial shipping refund after receiving the package and seeing it weight significantly less. After showing them photo proof the chat agent calculated how much should be refunded me and guided me through the steps of applying for a partial refund. She even confirmed that I had correctly applied for it but said that someone else will have the deal with the refunds so I will have to wait 3-4 days and fast forward to today the refund is going to time out in a couple hours. The refund page translated says that if the seller doesn't respond the system will automatically refund me but I'm just wondering if anyone can confirm this? Also, will I be able to get the refund directly to my cc or will I have to somehow go through alipay or something?

Can anyone help ascertain what the last 'colour' option means? The english translation: leather 188 yuan consultation customer service. I'm guessing its to request other colours, since the same shoes in gold and aqua can be found on aliexpress. If so, would i be able to just ask for gold in the notes and my taobao agent will understand and get the correct colour? Or is it probably just better to buy the gold ones off aliexpress even though they're probably more expensive than the fees + item.

Any help in the matter would be greatly appreciated!

Yes this works, if the seller doesn't respond you automatically get the refund. And you will get the refund through your CC, but that itself took another few days (a week, roughly, I think?) to show up in my CC history.

Normally before asking for a refund I'd chat with seller (not the forwarder) on aliwangwang to see what their deal is. Have had some sellers not even answer and not even ship out my packages so I just request a full refund. No idea what is up with those sellers.

yeah, the last option is to request a custom color, assuming for 188 yuan rather than the ~105 yuan the in-stock options cost.

if you show your SS a picture of these shoes in the color you want, i think they should be able to get them in the correct color for you

I looked the shoes up on Ali (~$40usd; sorry if you're using a different form of currency). Ordering through taobao (~$28.41 without fees/shipping applied) would save you some money, but I think it depends on how easily you can communicate with your SS and how much you trust them in the end.

Thanks for the reply, they never ended up responding and so the automatic refund is going through now. Not even sure why they didn't respond to the refund when we agreed on everything over the chat but whatever I guess as long as I get my money back.

Another thing that kind of surprised me was that they couldn't/didn't just look up my package info and see how much they ended up printing the shipping label weight for. You would think that that stuff would all be recorded in their system under my parcel number. I had no problems sending them an image as proof but it just seems like it would be a lot more efficient to be able to pull up this info on their end.

I'm kind of split between thinking they do it on purpose to make it harder for buyers to file claims (kind of makes sense when you think about how many people in China probably try and game everything, even small tiny shops), and that Aliwangwang is really more of a chat app for them, whereas for us it's strictly to chat with taobao sellers. Sometimes you get a little handphone icon on some convos that (I think) indicate they're using it from their handphone, I always wonder if they're replying to my messages while they're out getting milk or something, and so can't look up my parcel info (it's kinda dumb, I'd just leave the message unread until I could get to a PC, look things up and knock out a proper business reply, but I guess some people prefer to answer whatever they can there and then? idk).

Anyway, glad you got your refund sorted.

That's not too bad of a start, looks like the set comes with a blouse and random skirt. If your SS is okay with holding your items you might as well wait for photos before picking out some legwear, petticoat, shoes and bag and shipping it all together, then you'd have your first outfit.

nayrt, but i know that feel when you just want your items and have already spent a lot.

if you're not on a time crunch trying to prepare for a particular event, though, then i really would recommend waiting til you find the other items you need and shipping them out together. better to pay the horrid shipping fees in one go than paying around the same amount for not as many items at a later date.

some shopping services will hold your items indefinitely until you finally ship them out, so you can keep adding to your order as long as you like. i know from experience taobaoring will. disregard everything above if you are trying to make a deadline, though...

as for shoes, however, i know some shops on taobao that offer size 41 and above.

Just a bit more info on this if anybody cares to know, It’s not exactly just liquids as some liquids can be shipped out of China without problems. however, nail polish is considered flammable and that is the reason it cannot be shipped unless it’s shipped via specialized lines or ground shipping. (Same thing from Japan,Europe,USA- basically nowhere can you honestly ship flammable liquids such as nail polish or perfume without using a specialized shipping line - if you do and label it something else and get caught you’ll be in some trouble for it as it’s a danger)

Anon if you want Chinese nail polishes just do aliexpress.
Aliexpress sellers who sell nail polish get their stuff out by using specialized shipping lines capable of handling their “flammable liquids” or are willing to simply lie on customs forms and have been getting away with it whereas the agents for Taobao are unwilling to lie as they dont want to screw their connections with the postal services they work with , but some agents do actually have specialized lines for flammable goods that will be costly to use and take a long time.
