I've been telling myself I need to stay off Taobao, but noooo itchy hands just had to go and start surfing and clicking on websites, so I ended up having yet another Taobao spree and expanding my boys' never ending wardrobe collection. This time, I  decided to give Hyunie's another makeover as I wasn't too satisfied with his previous one. So little guy got a new set of outfit plus a new wig to boot. I had to trim the wig quite a lot as it was too big and too long for the little guy and I thought it was a pity to crop away those lovely wavy strands but, oh well.

And now for more Hyunie spam!

​✿ Hyunie's Fashion 101​ ✿ 
• "Ramen-style" wig from The End • 
Cat Shirt and Cat Pants from Dolly π • 
• Octopus hairclip from The 6th • 
• Canvas bag & book by me •

A Short Review: 

Dolly π has a pretty nice collection of casual shirts, jackets and pants but I wished they had more items in their collection. I love their jeans, but I didn't get any since I already have one for a chibi L cosplay at home. They have a few tees I like too but most were sold out, though I supposed that's kind of good for my wallet LOL! I'm just glad that the design I wanted most, the kitty tee that Hyunie's is wearing, was still available. The quality of the set I got from Dolly π was pretty good and the shirt could be opened at the back with velcro, which makes it pretty easy to put on! 

As for The 6th, there was some confusion over the price initially, but I eventually clarified it with the seller and it turned out that the hairband or hairclip option is only 35RMB (appx. USD $5.70 as of Jun 24, not including shipping and agent fees). I supposed I should have gotten the cat ears hairband instead since Hyunie's outfit set is cat-themed, but I really like the octopus which I thought was pretty cute! 

I should really stop searching for BJD stuff on Taobao! But urgh, it's just too addictive! ROFL!

Haha yeah it's a hairclip! I just added on a short review about the two stores. ^^

I guess it really depends on which stores you're buying from on Taobao. I tend to do a general search for BJD stuff on Taobao, then check out the stores individually for the items I like, but you will need to check their feedback and it can be risky for lesser known stores. I've gotten pretty good quality stuff from Taobao stores before and also a few really crappy ones (like one singlet which was quite shoddily sewn and it was from a more well-known store! *shocked*), but generally, if you stick with the more reputable stores, you should be okay.

The only thing is that you'll need a Taobao agent to buy and ship the items to you for a fee, and you will have to pay for shipping from the store to your agent and from your agent to you. I think most of the time though, it is still a cheaper option than buying from certain retailers directly. XD

Haha yeah, it was quite hastily made, I just printed out the picture and stuck in on a piece of harder paper. Lazy me! ROFL!
