im sorry for asking a stupid question at 12:30 at night but >_<
has anyone ordered from wigs from korea before??
if you did, how was the quality and where did u order it from?
my grandparents are coming over here sometime next year,
and i wanna get some cosplay stuff since they are like.. cheap X3;;
but i asked the ppl at the korean cosplay store about their wigs and their asnwers were
"we dont know the fiber, its some kind of plastic"
and
"we also dont know the length of the wig"
so that got me worried.. a little ;;
so yeah.. is this common when ordering wigs/cosplay stuff in korea >_<??
does any of you guys actually order cosplay related things from korea?
thanks~ <3 <3 <3

Bought some RO stuff from Korea...but not wigs!

I was actually thinking about their wigs too.

If they don't know the length of the wig...then they most likely never see the wig lol (probably a drop ship)

I got the deviruichi plushie!!

btw..the wigs don't look that bad! When I have the chance, I will look through them.

If I'm not mistaken, I saw some of those same wigs on a japanese wig store too.

RO is so freakin cute... too bad the manwha-ga wont continue the manwha though TT_TT!!
the wigs do look awesome in the pictures +_+ !!
but i had bad experience with just going with pictures ...
so im more cautious now -_- ;;
i asked korean cosplayers about it and supposedly, hairheaven has the best wigs :3~
so im thinkin about ordering my most important ones from there, and buy the less important ones at the other stores ~~

i just want to give a personal THANK YOU to kiwi lady for the websites!

and now i have a question.

1. do the websites that you provided must be registered user in order to order stuff?
2. when registering do u have to give a korean social security number?(i know alot of korean websites such as daum.net requires it and since i was born here in the US i dont have one)

you are super welcome XD!
1. yeah... korean ppl and their.. registering issues lol
but i dont think Jak-co asks for it :3!
2. you need korean social to register for the sites that asks for memberships >_<
sometimes they let foreigners register too on some sites but they require copys of ur passports and bunch of documents ... high security ^^;;
but if your parents are from korea, maybe u can ask them about their number :3 thts wht i used to do until i reached 14 XDD

bummer... :bigcry:

i *would* ask but that would just be adding another line on their list of things that they feel i should not be doing... :snoring:

hahahaha, this is such a tease... to have all those things in front of you and not be able to have it... sigh...

Does anyone know any stores over in korea? I usually go do the whole asian shopping spree for like a month over during the summer.

^uh...like where in Korea? and what are you looking to buy? since you said asian shopping spree, then you want to buy anything? everything?!? Seoul is about all i know of or can tell you about:

Itaewon Market...you can buy just about anything here, including cosplay/anime related stuff...

Myung Dong Shopping Center - this is like young peoples hangout...lots of shops, restaurants, etc...

COEX Mall...I hear this is a really fun and cool place to go....a lot more than shopping...movies, recreation, etc...

there are some other koreans on the site that have recently been to Korea....search the "Koreans in the House" thread....maybe try pm some of them?

^invisionfree marketplace tells you how to do all international ordering...same way you order stuff from gmarket and have shipped to the north america......i think the last exchange rate was something like 994 wan = 1 usd...
