PinkyParadise circle lenses...forever and a day to receive?

has anyone else had an issue with PinkyParadise having their shipping take FOREVER?
I've literally been waiting over a month for my lenses and they are still in new york....and im in colorado.

It took them almost the entire month to go from "germany shipping facility" to "frankfurt shipping facility" really? one month to get from a place in germany...to a place in germany? now its just in New york on the 24th....and they haven't gone anywhere since?

I really highly doubt ill ever buy from them again due to this...simply because if I bought them for a cosplay not for fashion as i have with this pair....id be soooo must more pissed.

If you checked out with the cheap "global mail" shipping option, well, you get what you pay for. It takes a LONG time. I always buy mine in one go for the entire year's cosplays with enough spent to qualify for the free express shipping, and I have them in about a week in that case via Fedex.

I should think about ordering that way. I do need 3 other pairs for my cosplays.

I would say it's just Colorado's mail service but the fact that the package was last in New York disproves my theory lol

One cosplayer I watch talked about how Pinky Paradise takes a while to actually ship out the orders, but I personally don't have any experience with them; good to keep in mind for the future.

But that aside, it could just be the mail service in the US, too.
Whenever I buy internationally, the tracking updates with every facility the product gets to up until it enters the US.
After that, I'm left without a clue as to where it could possibly be until it "arrives" (<--- the lady down the street gets half of my packages...), and even then, it doesn't update to "delivered" until a day or two after it came.
In other words, USPS is terrible at package tracking.

I hope you get them soon, nonetheless~

It's $125 or $130 USD for free express shipping.. roughly four or five pairs of lenses and possibly some other accesories. My last order was during a sale so I bought five pairs of lenses, an extra case, and a pack of false eyelashes, and it took just over a week to arrive. Since the lenses don't expire for a long time when still sealed, it's a pretty sweet deal if you use lenses enough. OH- but you may get a customs fee billed to you later. It wasn't much (less than $15) but it was an unpleasant surprise. Not sure if it's the same in the US, as I'm in Canada.

It took about a month and a half for mine to arrive, and they hung out in Germany for a while too. Shipping international is a pain, so I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Waiting for cosplay stuff is the worst though. I want it now!

The first time I ordered from them, I chose the least expensive "global shipping" option. It took about a month and a half to get to me. After that first time, I was told to pay the little extra for Fedex. Every order since, I have received in a week after they were shipped out.

Does this mean that if you live in Europe, they will actually ship rather quickly? (Instead of the 1-1,5 month it usually takes from america or asia)
I thought the store was us based XD

I always use the FedEx option and they ship it really fast, it only takes like 3-7 days to get here (I live in Europe)

My first order with them to Canada took about 2 week with the free express shipping fedex option. It was randomly shipped to the US first for some reason. lol


Here is another seller that i found when i went looking for a pair of EOS lens that seems to be out of stock for the past 6 months on PP. I haven't ordered with them yet but they are my back up plan.
