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!!
