Finally got an email back from Fantasy Sheep.

Their female!Italy wig is out of stock, restocked next month. And it's going to be $20.30 plus shipping. Unless shipping costs $30, thats cheaper than their eBay listing <3

now the only thing i'm worried about is the tangling. the posts about the horrific tangling of fantasy sheep wigs has got me worried =(. i'm buying an 80cm black wig and it reaches about mid-back. the person who's going to be wearing the wig is probably going to wear it for a whole day (say from 8 A.M.-7 P.M.). for those that have worn long fantasy-sheep wigs, just how bad is the tangling going to be? given that i'll be doing massive preventive measures for tangling. =D

Their short wigs are wonderful...dem long ones are disasters. What does the elizabeth wig look like? Link if you can.

I'm glad it wasn't just me that had a major color issue with FS. A group of friends and I placed a bulk order and some ordered stuff from FS. I think it would be rad if we started adding comparison photos like magnum-desu, so I'll have them take pictures of their wigs straight from the package too. Making a huge list of not only FS but other Taobao cosplay sellers. It'll help people in the long run.

I also have a wine red wig along with my supposed-white-but-is-actually-graygray and supposed-blonde-but-is-actually-brown wigs to post. Camera cable is still MIA, lol, I'm finding all sorts of junk I thought I lost forever.

@noggleNoL: Mine was 100 cm, curly, and it took 1 minute to get tangled.
My friend's wig which I posted earlier took the time during the walk from the hotel room to the con.

I suggest you heavily invest in DeMert wig Shampoo and Lusterizer & Sonditioner spray to prevent anything from happening in the first place. The brand isn't sold at Sally's unfortunately but I was able to buy it from a local weave shop b/c I couldn't wait for the shipping from online.

That wig will be okay against tangles. The curls will get some obvious wear so you'll have to restyle them every so often. Just like real curls (lol, prom), they go flat at the end of a long night.

As for shipping, EMS has a base price of about $30 for the 1st 1lb your package is, then you pay more for each additional pound--this cost is about $11/lb. Hopefully, you didn't buy some hella heavy items.
She's charging you $68 for shipping...that makes me think that she's already including domestic US shipping in the cost as well along with the EMS. There's also shipping insurance to factor in if you didn't opt out of it for both China and US.

My service makes the has you pay the shipping for both international and domestic at the same time so maybe yours does so as well.

LOL yeah thats why i wanted to buy it from fantasy sheep because i had bought a Lolita wig that looks somewhat similar to Elizabeth wig (just a darker color and the base wig is not the same style) last year and the curls are still in and they haven't gone done yet i just softly shake it and boom curl is perfect. But if it did go down i would be able to restyle and i don't mind restyling it i might even make it more curly when i get it XD. After what everone says i don't wanna buy long wigs for FS i'll stick with their short wigs.
Well i didn't really get heavy stuff i think .just three wigs some cat ears and two jewelery pieces, she said that she can change it to airmail for me thank goodness. She said that airmail is going to be around 200 so like 30 dollars. I hope the items arn;t heavy cuz then my head is going to hurt. It when i read my email and saw my total is so woke up and was like wutttttttttt .

Some Advice, Please?

Hi!

I'm Jackie. I just need some advice on buying from Tao Bao. (I randomly found this forum from somewhere, and I'm so glad that I did. I didn't really want to spend more than $30.00 on a Grell Sutcliff wig, and I knew it would be hard to get a a decent wig for that cheap because his hair is sorta long.)

Anyway, I found a wig that I like on Tao Bao by... Somebody? (I can't tell where the seller's name is! Like, I used a translating thingy, but I still couldn't find it.) This is the wig: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=5862726981 It looks pretty decent, and the color isn't too dark or too light.

It's almost 60.00 Yuan, so that's, like, $10 or something dollars, right? And then this wig from another seller, for L from Death Note. Here: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=6725240355 That's, like, $7.00 dollars, right? So... $17.00 or $15.00-ish dollars for both. But, if I used an agent from TaoBaoSpree and the item was shipped via SAL, how much would that be? I have no idea how SAL works! I know that it's by boat and it takes 3 to 4 weeks to ship, right? I don't mind if it takes a long time for shipping, though. So, yeah... Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you so much!
-Jackie.

@DokiDomo- In addition to the SAL shipping, you'll also need 10 Yuan for the domestic shipping in China for the Grell wig. You can choose what kind of shipping for the L wig (like EMS, or whichever you want). As for the shipping back here, Taobao Spree also has 40% off EMS shipping. The EMS shipping will probably be $20-30 (I'm not sure if it's PER wig though, sorry ^^') . Plus a 10% agent fee of the wig price and domestic shipping fee. Yeah, I know, it's very confusing lolz

The posts of horrific tangling of Fantasy Sheep long wigs have scared me away from them XD Therefore, does anyone know how badly a C.C. Kids 80cm wig, such as this one, tangles?

C.C. Kids is good. I bought a C.C wig from them before, it doesn't tangle like FS's, you can actually run your fingers through it XD

Re:

@Not-An-Asylum: Oh, okay, thanks!

(But, um, does anybody know how much SAL shipping would cost for the wigs? They're probably really light, so, yeah. I would use EMS, but I don't think I have enough money... ) Has anybody ever had any problems from using SAL to ship wigs?
