It's as expensive as real LL in my experience. Much easier and cheaper to buy 2nd hand from fril or somewhere similar. their quality is okay, unless it's anything woven like basket bags, those are terrible!

No. 221790

Oh damn, really? The basket bags are what I wanted.

No. 221792

The one i got was really poorly made, weaving wasn't done properly so it poked through the lining. they also used a super cheap ugly drawstring unlike the picture and it was a total eyesore,. i think most LL knockoff sellers buy the real bag to use as the stock photo to trick you.

tbh, the real staw bags are quite delicate and i only use mine every once in a while.

How do you guys find those replicas? I remember buying an awesome Acne scarf replica in 2016 which I wanted to post here, but it's not available anymore & searching for "Acne Studios" didn't work either.

I often find cosmetic knockoffs, though. I tried some of the sheet masks & hand lotions (mostly Tonymoly "inspired") and liked them a lot.

I get most of mine from ali threads on r/repladies and reverse image search on the app. I've gotten a few gems from fb groups but they're mostly full of crap. It used to be much easier to find reps but they've cracked down over the last few years. I only had this link because I've had it saved in my favorites for months.

Bought one a few years ago, quality was good but I had to pay too much to make it come earlier for a con. If you buy cosplay from a store with good reviews and enough time for the package to come you shouldn't have any problems to get a decent cosplay

Why not just buy something generic or something similar? Knock offs are so tacky. I'm not even being nasty I just don't understand why, it's considered a real trailer trash thing here

No. 224227

you don't have to have the design, why not just get a cheaper nicer bag like >>224225 is saying. most knockoffs have the fake hardware logo or logos printed all over them too. people buy brand name explicitly for conspicuous consumption purposes so you can get off your pathetic high horse about ~impress who~ and all that.

$4 USD is 25 yuan and for reference 25 yuan can buy a nice meal that you'd spend $10-15 on in US. I know it's not -that- much. but they'll make a lot by saying the same thing to every customer.

I would check reviews first to see if people's experiences are good. It depends on how your skin usually reacts to cosmetics since the materials won't be very good
However they may not be cruelty free (and most probably they aren't vegan), as pic related explains

Don't recommend the resin pigment as one I had leaked everywhere and dyed everything the other one dried up.
The UV resin is excellent though and I'm still happily using a 18 month old bottle. The decoden whip was also absolutely fine.

No. 287342

I wouldn't. There's a lot of knock off makeup on there so that leads me to believe there's no regulations on what cosmetics they sell. I don't buy anything on there that goes onto your skin, into your body or holds food or water.

No. 287410

the cream is probably fine.

I recommend below resin pigments which I own already. Well packaged and don't leak/dry out. https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/KiWarm-13Pcs-10g-Epoxy-UV-Resin-Coloring-Dye-Colorant-Pigment-DIY-Handmade-Crafts-Art-Sets-13/32826561487.html

To get the pearl color you're better off getting some of that opal nail powder instead since it's way cheaper.

The UV resin you linked is pretty good, but a little on the thick side so you need to shake it and having an emboss heater to smooth it out is important.

Let me know if you need anything else! I have good links for bezels and molds.

Here's some good stores:

DCC store you linked in your post.

This store is good, they have a lot of design sheets. Though I've found the sheets are too thick for a clear background. Search resin because the categories are hard to follow.


Also really good for resin stuff and findings/jewelry making, just search resin because I can't figure out the term here either.


This store has a ton of stuff too really nice antique style settings, charms and bezelz and other cool metal parts for resin work.


Good for sweets deco and stuff because it has tons of mini cups and polymer sticks.

Their trustpilot score is pretty good. Aliexpress is the western version of alibaba, which is (one of?) the biggest online retailer(s) in china. They're legit. It's like amazon, but with only marketplace sellers. Individual sellers can be shitty but as long as you look at their store feedback and only buy from reliable ones, you should be fine.

I've bought dozens of things and the few times I've had problems I've been able to settle it directly with the seller over dms, or have gotten a refund from aliexpess.

aliexpress is the same as ebay or rakuten. just order from sellers with feedback on either the product you're ordering or their store/other products. it's not that scary or unsafe.

I'm a noob when it comes to ordering things that aren't hair on aliexpress, is it safe to buy nail stuff like gel polish?

Most of them don’t track right to your house and buyer protection is like 60 days and they usually legit take longer. It helps if you never spend over $15 and only buy cheap shit so they don’t pay for tracking to house.

skin care or makeup should be off the table. this is something you are putting on your face. it's always better to check and get quality from an approved seller, even if it's western or korean. I would not trust aliexpress anything for face

No. 288790


do you want like a super traditional one anon or one of the more modern ones?

also don't worry about "refund anon" she's probably lying, those cheap shipping methods don't actually let you dispute against them and aliexpress is super seller friendly unlike amazon and ebay and such. it's extremely hard to win disputes.

also, chargebacks are what get your account banned, not so much disputes.

God that's some real fuckin salt lol…

Are you like some rich girl that has a personal tailor? Because unless you are…

Most shit is Chinese made crap. Even fancy H&M "boutique" shit. Actually, especially that fancy "boutique" shit. Its all marketing. Some mass manufactured designs are definitely better than others. At the end of the day, its all shit from China or guatemala or wherever the fuck probably made by child slaves.

I'd rather buy a piece of "knockoff" Chinese crap that looks and feels pretty much the damn same as the shit i have to spent upwards of 50$ on because its "nice" instead of waste my life on being salty about one Chinese piece of shit over the other.

Aliexpress has a lot of problems and a lot of things are definitely "fall apart as soon as you touch it" bad, but you spend like, 3 bucks on it, vs. The mark up of some of this shit and then having wasted 100 bucks just to find out its shit. And some of it is really nice!

Now if anyone has some nice, cutesy but sort of sophisticated clothing and accessories, I'm game for recommendations instead of shitting up the thread with salt that's basically "lel poorfag."

i'm >>317257 and this is basically what i was trying to say. like, just the other day my friend came across this jacket she just had to have, allegedly from a small "boutique" in montreal, cost $150, found the same jacket on aliexpress for $20, just without the fake fur trim, added a few snaps and there you go, same jacket.

people just don't understand that much of the shit on aliexpress isn't cheap because it's crappy, it's cheap because that's how much it costs before i buy it and sell it at my shop at the mall for 4x the price.

Sage but you don't have to be rich to not buy from China. Especially if you live in a rather big country, you can easily find locally made stuff for slightly more than what you'd buy from H&M but nothing outrageous. And on top of that you'd support local business.

Or you can buy high fashion second hand. I got a nice brand bag for a fraction of the price (~100€) and it's lasting me forever, compared to a bag I'd get for 20€ that would start to peel and turn grey super fast.

Of course if you want a kawaii heart bag with pompoms or a burger shaped beret you'll wear twice, go for it and buy it on aliexpress.

never trust the sellers. i got a bogus tracking number, it said "delivered" so when i filed a dispute, i lost. The thing is, normally the tracking will say when it reaches customs or something but it just said "arrived in destination country" and then delivered. No city names were stated. The seller kept saying to check with my post people and that maybe my neighbors picked it up but here i need the senders info, which they refused to give and instead claimed they were refunding me but never did. So i lost $16 and because i disputed it and lost the dispute, i couldnt/cant even give a negative feedback.

To be a little fair, it really could have been my lazy post people leaving it next to mailboxes and one of my neighbors stealing it, but because i was home the weekend it said it was delivered and the fact delivery date was sunday (which is not possible) and never stated any city names really makes me think it was fake or someone else tracking number.

I feel so awful rn. Local post is the most absolute GARBAGE and we have countless stories of orders being lost or purposefully not sent to the right adresses and workers re-selling them or giving them to their kids instead, I ordered 2 packs of incense and it never arrived so far (unregistered tracking so chances of local post losing it or having it's workers doing shady stuff were very high) so I got a refund from seller. Over a month later today, I got it into my home and I feel so bad about it.

It's not like I did it by purpose like the asshole anon in a few posts above, and I ordered back a few more incense packs with the refunded money

Don’t feel bad, this happens a lot. Refunds are routine for sellers (especially bigger sellers). You didn’t know your package was going to show up, so you took the appropriate actions that anyone would have done. Just give them a nice rating.

Nail oil pen. I saw the one SimplyNailLogical made, and I wanted one too but I can't easily get the products to my country so I bought this one.

It's not really oil I think. It feels really nice when you apply it and smell alright, but when it dries a bit it dries your skin out so much. I quietly stopped when I saw it made my cuticles worst.

thigh high tights. I bought them because it said they had a reach of 173 cm. I'm 170 cm so I thought these would be tall enough (I bought ones before but they where too short). They do fit after some squeezing. I'm probably too fat because when I sat down and folded my legs something ripped. Not really the thighs fault.

I will not buy any tights any more because Asian sizes just don't work for my fat-ass. I bought other thigh high tights from ASOS which fitted perfectly.

I fucking love this dress. It was so cheap but it's perfect. It made from this kind of weird fabric (it says cotton mix, but it's more viscose-like). But because of that it falls perfectly on me. Because of the fabric the dress pulls down a little bit and that makes the chest area come out real good and shapely. For me the dress widens around my stomach, so perfect for hiding all the ugliness.

I can't seem to pair them with leggings, I don't know what it is, maybe the fabric clash but it always looks bad when I do. Summer dress with nothing under it looks best.

Lots of the plus size clothes I've seen on ali are knock offs of cheap brands like boohoo and f21, and sometimes are more expensive than the original.

NTA, but yea. Lol I've gotten literal garbo from AliExpress, ill-fitting or shit in this weird cheap polyester shiny fabric. Forever 21 isn't great, but at least I know what I'm getting. Sellers on Ali either leave details out or lie outright.

That being said, I love AliExpress for cheap crap, like stickers and ankle socks. Stuff that is hard to screw up. Everything else is a mixed bag, and I honestly prefer buying secondhand brands to buying new on Ali.

>er, anon, most of them are the same as F21 entirely, made in the same factories, only with no tags.

Eh. Not true, but kinda true. Just because they both come from China doesn't mean they come from the same factory. I've seen crap from older collections of Zara/ASOS/H&M get sold on Ali, stolen photos and everything. A lot of Korean brand stuff too get their photos stolen. You can tell by the specific brand's photography style and because the product is even shittier than the original photo. But I've also seen known Taobao/Ali generic brand stuff being sold at a markup in malls. I usually do a lot of searching and shopping around before I commit to a buy, including reverse image searching, so I hope that makes me less likely to get ripped off.

I've been buying from Ali for years, so I would hope that means I know a thing or two…


No. 322934

Idk if it matters, but just letting you know it's not just you. The stockings on there are pretty awful. I once got a pair of "thigh high" stockings that were over-the-knee at best (I'm 5'5") and I had pretty skinny legs. They got a fucking run in them just from walking around and sitting.

Yikes to this thread infighting.

I've yet to have a very bad experience, and I've bought quite a bit of stuff. Most of my problems have been from clothing, which I was already iffy about buying in the first place. I bought a sweater that had the seams spit the second time I wore it, and it was "one size fits all," so it wasn't me being too big for it; it was actually really comfy. I also bought a t-shirt with a meme printed on it. The fit was very weird, the material was see-through, and the print was really weak and faded. I haven't worn it and it still sits in my closet, it also came with a small stain I didn't mind, but it's actually become darker and very noticeable now that it's been sitting there. I think I might sew it into a shopping bag or use the print as a patch.

I also bought a bra set, it was decent quality but stunk chemically. It was also too small, not my size. I could get in on, but it clearly fit differently than on the model, darker material too. I sold it for a dollar less than I paid for it, so no major loss.

I mostly just buy those dainty necklaces, enamel pins, and keyboard covers with different languages on them for Duolingo.

yeah, if it's displaying a different capacity than what it's specified for it's probably fake. I prefer to buy tech stuff from Newegg or Amazon to be safe because if it's fucked up I'll get my money back. Most sellers on Aliexpress don't do refunds and for the one that do, what's the point? You'll spend more on postage sending it back.

No. 438217

If you get a wrong item (broken, not as described, not the one model you ordered, etc) you just open a dispute and ask to get your money back. You don't have to send anything back. All of sellers give refunds back, that's the site policy. You might only have a problem if the store gets deleted but this has never happened to me.
Have you ever purchased anything on Aliexpress?

No. 438227

Yeah I usually sort things out by 4 stars and up waiting and most orders, just some of the store names for the SD cards sounded sketch.
I ended up buying a micro SD card off Amazon because it was about the same price as the one I was looking at on Ali, about $2 more total, but will ship way faster. My next SD card I'm gonna try to get from Ali so fingers crossed the quality is at least decent! I've heard of people saying they got the right amount of data but the writing speed is just abysmal.

How long ago this was? I got my money back like 7-8 months ago. I provided pictures of the item of course (it was not the one I wanted).

How exactly do you prove that an untracked item didn't arrive?

No. 438305

So i don't know if this question belongs here but it's related to buying things from china so maybe someone can give me their opinion on this situation. So i ordered wigs from taobao and the package arrived some days ago at the local customs and they couldn't gave me the package because it had no label where the name of the manufacturer and the material it was made of was written and thus will be send back to china. I contacted the shopping service site and they only answered that they could try to ship it with another method. I'm thinking of doing a refund but the site mentions in their policy that they don't do such things. Would it still possible to do it, i mean even if they shipped it with another method it wouldn't gurantee that next time that it wont get stuck at customs again, it would be kinda like a vicious circle and i probably won't get the package. So how big are my chances?

No. 438332

As a goth myself, I would recommend Regalrock jewelry. They are a bit more pricy by aliexpress standarts (still very cheap compared to popular gothic brands) and have a ton of cool unique designs.
There's also Rosetic Store with pretty good clothing, tho the sizes can be iffy (check the reviews) and Punk Rave has a storefront on there.
Really, there's plenty of gothic stuff if you look it up. I bought a ton of Halloween decorations there super cheap, because we don't have them in my country at all.
You can also find some copies of Killstar on there for cheap. I haven't bought any myself yet, but people who did are saying it's exactly like the real thing and may even be surplus stock. I found some bags and phonecases on there.
The only issue is - not a lot of things are tagged "goth" even if they technically are, so including "goth" as a searchterm greatly limits your results sadly. There's no proper way to look up dark alternative stuff all at once.

Weeb shit is ok too, but it mostly has stolen art or is bootleg/recast from the original merch. I myself am against buying things like that and prefer official merch, but if you're okay with it, go for it. At least the pins/badges and bags from there are ok. Wouldn't recommend actual figures tho.

No. 438432

Is there a masterpost on how to buy clothes from aliexpress? Like, how do I avoid getting mangled shit that looks nothing like the picture?

No. 438448

The only thing you can do is look at reviews. Even then there's really no 100% guarantee you're getting what you see in the picture. There can be multiple versions of an item by different sellers, using the same pictures for listing. A lot of the listings are copies of an original item that's in the picture. A lot are just photoshopped straight from google images.
Your best bet is looking for long established shops with big sales numbers and good reviews and even then you might get something shitty. Looking for places that provide a lot of pictures of the actual item and proper measurements/sizings can be good too.
Sadly, buying clothes online is kind of a crapshoot in places that don't really have customer support beyond "we'll give you your money back if it's damaged". If it doesn't look like the picture, you can ask for refund too, but that doesn't work sometimes.
Most of the clothes I got from ali were actually okay. Usual fast-fashion quality with some skimping on the seams or cheaper fabrics. But then again I paid fast-fashion prices.

Late as hell, but I've bought 2 128gb SD cards for my switch, they work just fine. If you find the right seller, you can get away with a good price. I've ordered more electronics from aliexpress than I'm willing to admit.
