Uhh... don't know why this thread hasn't gone anywhere, but I really like princessmei. She's really cute, and nerdy enough to where she's relatable. >https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPlPMWbk0fy_zKvUDEnm0vw
I ordered 2 things using the forwarding service, and when I checked only 1 of them has shipped. I don't want to risk having to pay warehouse fees. What's the best course of action here? I just ordered about 36 hours ago.
Reposting from last thread: Does the Pastel Goth style have any certain terms to use on taobao? It's not in the dictionary and combining the terms for pastel and goth doesn't really work. I want to buy some stuff for a friend, so search terms and good shop links would be loved. I tried googling it, but almost all the links lead to dead shops.
>>8733143 Wait longer, it's during a heavy rush season and even outside of that items can take a lot longer to ship. You have 20 free warehouse days per item (the counting only begins once the item is at the warehouse), and the fee charged is 1 yuan per day so it's super minimal if you don't have many things. If after a couple more days they don't ship, you can go to your order management page click 'remind seller to ship'. If they still do nothing after more days, contact the seller and ask when the item will be sent.
Chill out, and take your time to look around your order management pages. If you use google chrome's auto translate and the english guides already published for taobao, you'll become more comfortable and won't panic so easily over nothing. Good luck anon!
>>8733299 pastel goth doesn't really exist like it does on tumblr and elsewhere, so there is no catch-all term for the clothing. I'm guessing combinations of soft sister (for the pastels) or ice cream color, and motifs like the crosses, skulls/bones, etc. accessories are pretty easy to search for using the dictionary terms.
Can we have a decoden thread? We've had them before and they went really well.
I'm thinking about getting some whipple cream, anyone here have experience with it? Also what are your thoughts on the amount of people who use it to decorate phone cases? Is that market pretty much full or should I try to get in on that?
I used to do a FUCKLOAD of Decoden (pic related of a couple did)
I actually just bought "Whipple" branded whipple cream today.. Its a lot like watered down fimo and Im not sure of its lasting capability, I actually used to use silicon as as much as it smelled horrid for the first week, it was waterproof and had incredibly strong hold on the case and the deco pieces.
Basically in the decoden market.. Its like: 1. How good are your creations 2. How cheaply can you price

>>8732861 Your stuff looks a lot like what I see on instagram! Unfortunately I don't know enough about silicone to make these kind of phone cases. I thought it was like dyed glue? The video I saw of someone making a case made it seem that way because they put it on, and then stuck a bunch decoden stuff in it and it dried perfectly. I've also seen videos of people dropping the cases they made to prove it holds up and it does, at least for one drop it does.

>What profession do you work in now?
I'm a seamstress for a dress shop that makes ballroom dancing dresses for the competitive ballroom dancing circuit. Which is a thing. The dresses you see on Dancing With the Stars/Strictly Come Dancing? Shit like that except not held together with duct tape and prayers.

As I watch/play things I keep a list of characters that I could see myself cosplaying as. When I know I'll be going to a con in the next year I pick one or two and then start gathering every reference photo I could possibly need. I'll usually spend a week looking at tutorials that would related to that cosplay and picking out wigs. Then I start planning out all of things I'll make myself, I usually draw out the outfit in my notebook and make notes of the colors of fabrics I'll need. Once all of that is planned out I head to the fabric store and start buying things.
Cosplanner. I'm absolutely hooked on it. Used to have an elaborate series of ref sheets, checklists and excel spreadsheets, etc, but now I basically just keep it all in the app except for one detailed measurement sheet if i'm making it for someone other than myself
>>8732714 >>8732750 I used to hoard folders of reference images too but with my most recent cosplay I put together a sort of collage like lolitas do for coordinates, which I felt helped a lot since I'm a very visual person.
I never heard of cosplanner, I definitely want to look into that though!
Can we discuss dodgy SS and webshops? Having trouble with one of them and want to share your concerns and stories? Were you scammed or are you still waiting for your goods after many months of waiting? What SS and webshops should we avoid?
Here is my story. I bought something from an SS on facebook named Loli Loli Paradise, they also have another SS account named Ieong Kam Seng. This is a Taobao SS. My transaction took place in May, it was a pre-order for an OP (not a print replica, fyi) and matching headdress. At some point I sent them a pm which... Comment too long.

>>8732536 You kinda fucked up there yourself. You forced them to send you something which they did and they cant make the stores work faster. They need to communicate better for sure if people are unsure about what is happening but with taobao waiting months is the norm.
>>8732539 Yeah I know fucked up a bit, but if I didn't file the claim I probably still wouldn't have had my dress? Waited as long as I could with my claim to give them time but at some point you just have to you know? I sent them so many messages politely asking for an update, which they all ignored, they only started replying when I filed the claim which says everything really. Their biggest issue is definitely communication. I know it's hard to keep in touch with all buyers but if there's a big... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

So I'm planning on making an as accurate version / model of the sniper rifle in pic related for a cosplay, however the con I'm going to says "no metal/funtional/explosive/heavy wooden weapons". How far can you go without compromising the look of the item, and assuming I still want to machine parts from metal, what problems will this logically cause at a con?
>inb4 just foam it
Rather not, planning to keep it later; the more realistic the better.
Most cons will say no "heavy wooden weapons" but all my guns are wood and I've never once been flagged for it. At most some cons will make you keep it strapped to your back or something so that other people can't grab it. Just email them in advance about it.
>>8732634 Sadly I didn't make this, I pulled it from the game files of PlanetSide 2. To be quite honest it's a pain in the ass because nothing is in detail, it's just bulky and even the barrel is an extruded decagon. I'm just in the process of measuring everything, and making individual pieces that can be machined/carved/printed.
>>8732488 Cosmates is gone? Reading the announcement is something else. I'm really sad to see them go, even if honestly, people like me are part of the problem. I just liked all the numerous stock they had from different sellers. >that midi song playing Hitting me in the feels.
>>8732217 No but I did pay a shopping service to buy me stuff at Design Festa. I would love to know what you bought. I hope that someday I can go to Japan and shop at Design Festa myself, it's so not fair to see all of the cute pictures of designers' merchandise on their Twitters and then just cross my fingers that the shopping service will do the best they can. I'm sure if I went there in person I'd buy about 100 more things.
Design Festa is sensory overload. I definitely recommend going, but only if you can dedicate the whole weekend to it and you have a lot of spare cash.
I ended up buying a ton of postcards and prints this time around, but I did get some cute accessories and stuff. I usually hate perler bead things but these I thought were pretty cute for a pastel coord I've been putting together.
