I've posted quite a few times now about the cosplays I'm preparing for Katsucon 2015, but now that I finally ordered my cosplays, I thought I'd share just how inexpensive Taobao is for ordering from!

Let's take a look :)

1. Nozomi's Pajamas! - $46.95

I couldn't find this item on Ebay or other English sites.

2. Nozomi's Purple Dress - $67.95.

I found the exact same item (by the same manufacturer) for $118 on Ebay.

3. Nozomi Fairytale Cosplay - $92.95

This price includes all accessories (no wig). There was a cheaper version of this available via ebay, but it wasn't the same seller and the accuracy/quality really suffered in comparison to this one.

4. Nozomi Hoodie - $26.95

The cheapest (not as nice) one I could find on ebay was $35.

5. Nozomi's Tarot Cards - $13.95

I got the full 78 set, which would cost at least $20 on ebay or other sites.

6. Two Wigs - $25.90 TOTAL

Already posted about these, but so cheap!!!

How great is this!

I also ordered a petticoat, and all in all the order was UNDER $300!!! I got basically 3 full cosplays, half of another cosplay, two wigs for that price. It's amazing, really! I bought three of the items from a shop called Fantasy Sheep, which my friends have ordered from before so I know they'll be great.
I can review the service I'm using once I complete my process with them, but really its been great so far and my friends have done it many times. I recommend looking at using a shopping service to order from Taobao because it's great!!

@S92pk yep there's stuff for everyone on taobao its like chinese ebay or amazon!
@MadAndrea I used a service called Clobba Online to order!
@schiz I basically just searched up the Kanji for the character I was looking for and used that to search for the items I wanted, then I sent the items I was interested in to the guy doing the shopping for me at Clobba Online and he translated the options & prices for me.Then I told him what I wanted to order, and he invoiced me and asked me for any other information the sellers needed (like measurements)
@hikaymm thx thats good to know
This is the truth. Most of my wigs came from them.
