I'm getting this austria wig myself ^^

Three pairs would be about $24.05 including agent fee and domestic shipping. (just a rough estimate)
Yeah, I mean international shipping (from the agent to me) But $20-$30 is defiantly doable. Just one more question, if I were to say, buy 3 more pairs of shoes would that shipping price double? Or would they discount it in some way?

Anyway, Thanks for the estimate! I'm gonna order me some shoes >:]

I have a question, since I get my taobao stuff shipped by family, how do you guys do it?
How do you guys manage to buy from taobao sellers (for those who don't speak Chinese), and get it shipped worldwide? o u o

that is such a relief to know~! i mean i've read elsewhere on other people's reviews that the wigs were kind of on the smaller end so i was a little bit worried. now i can actually go through with the order =D

as an update, still haven't heard word from fantasy sheep ;_;. i might really have to go through an agent again.

@millychu well as said in the thread we can go through agents that help us by ordering what we want and they ship it to us with a small commission. or we can as mentioned go through the seller directly, but it seems that this can only be done with a few of them and not all. but if you've got relatives then more power to you and i assume you save on shipping and you don't have to pay a commission =)

@ noogleNoL- Oh I see, so there are "agents" That's a pretty good idea, taobao items are usually very nice so I'm glad everyone has a way to get them Thanks!

Anyone want to do a batch?

(I'm not sure if this is the right section to put this in, but it is technically cosplay related, so I thought it would be fine >.> )

Hello one and all! This is an invitation for anyone that would be interested in joining me and a few friends on doing a Taobao batch! One of my friends suggested I extend my invitation to others, so that's why I'm posting this thread on here; the more the merrier I suppose, but in this case it just cuts shipping costs~ The deadline for getting all orders into me is April 3, and all the information about the batch itself and generally any questions you may have, can be found here: http://sockrocker04.deviantart.com/journal/38802580/

If you have any other questions or concerns, then you can either message me there or on here~ Thanks y'all!

Ok say that i do decide to go with an agent and purchase these wigs they are all from the same store so i believe that i would be charge one domestic shipping price correct? so thats like 50 USD, but how much you think the intl shipping would be and paying the agent. I tried to do it myself and get a approx price but i just end up confusing myself.

I will post a picture as soon as I find my camera cord somewhere in this behemoth mess called an apartment. Srsly, I thought I got the wrong color too but even the tag attached to the wig matched the name on the listing. >_> I emailed Fantasy Sheep and they said that IS the wig I ordered because the tags never get changed or mixed up. So if the tag matches the item name and number, it's what you ordered.

The wig style is limited: http://fantasysheep.taobao.com/?sear...&queryType=cat
My wig is waaaaay too light compared to the brown one--when there's that much light on the brown wig. So, it has to be that honey blonde one I ordered because the lighting just has to be bleaching out color. There's no other explanation I can find. Plus the dark areas are the exact color while the other wigs don't give any indication of a relation.

On that note....
I should have known better when this radioactive glowing green wig is actually pure white in real life: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=8159978153
While the this wig while looks white, is listed as white: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=8242088329 is actually a gray-gray.

So I've pretty much lost all my trust in Fantasy Sheep's color system. Sure there's the:

"All items sold by us are being described to the best of our abilities, as accurate as possible, and with utmost conscientiousness on our part. *Please Note that size and color representation are subject to manufacturing variance and may not be exact.**Also note that because of the different monitor, pictures and the wig might have color difference"

There's a difference between having the color slightly off and having a whole different color entirely. :/

Anyway, I'll post a pics soon and you'll shit bricks.
Oh, I've been using Oliver as my agent.

I've had the same colour issue with Fantasy Sheep wigs. I expected a light golden brown but received so-brown-it's-almost-black with red streaks. No comparison pictures because the listing for that wig seems to have been taken down.

The wig was only shoulder-length, but it was very tangled (even in the package). Even the bangs were tangled. (I'm almost impressed by that, to be honest. Not even my Miku wig tangles that easily.)

The ends were supposed to curl a bit past ear-length. Only the front-left portion was curled. The right and back sides are just vaguely wavy. Yeah, I can curl them but it's kind of irritating to look at a new wig and realize only 1/3 of it is styled correctly.

EDIT: Nevermind, the link I gave my SS still works, but there's only one small picture of the wig on it now. Here's a small colour comparison. Left is FS's picture, right is mine.

hmm now your scaring me of buying my wigs from them... I really wanted their elizabeth wig because they seem to be the only ones who does the hairstyle the correct way. I only bought from them once but it came the same color as the posting. You were able to get in contact with them. I been trying for days and i still haven't heard from them.

Faiga: I know what you mean, I bought a light blue wig from them that turned out to be way more aqua than in their picture. I kind of anticipated it, since when I used the search function for that exact color, each picture looked like it had a slightly different shade of blue, even when they're all supposed to be the same color. :| I also bought 2 of those "green" wigs that you linked. To me, they look almost white, but with a slight tinge of green. I was planning on dyeing it anyway so it didn't matter to me. As for the "white" wigs, many sellers such as Arda wigs have white wigs that are actually a light grey, unfortunately. Epic Cosplay, CosplayDNA, and Ayanamisatoru are the ones that have actual white wigs, from what I've seen. A friend of mine also ordered a black wig from FS that turned out to be dark green. I'm not sure if that's the seller's error or if we just ordered the wrong wig, but now we know to make sure that the description actually says black before ordering.

I heard from Fantasy Sheep today. I'm so happy!! They probably answered you as well considering that fact they answer most of the emails i sent them.
