Donât you re-sell stuff from taobao????
[CROPPED FOR YOUR DASHâS SAKE]
Why you being cute?
Wow not to mention the name âGeisha Wigsâ is REALLY fucking racist and appropriative???Â
Yeah. Iâm like 90% done with this company. Oh man.
The person running it is doing a terrible job running this so-called âbusinessâ
I donât necessarily mind taobao re-sellers, but BE HONEST about it. Most taobao re-sellers I know say itâs from taobao. Maybe even links to the original source and re-sell so that people donât have to go through using a shopping serviceÂ every timeÂ they want to make a small order. Plus it means shipping time might be less too. Geisha Wigs are trying to pass it off like theyâre making original stuff without actually saying they are for legal purposes, and itâs painfully obvious theyâre not.Â
They call certain wigs âcosplayâ wigs or âlolitaâ wigs for no reason. Clearly they know nothing about either one of these subjects. They donât have a sponsored model that partakes in either one of them either so I donât even know why they try passing off these labels. Most of them donât even seem educated in ANY japanese fashion yet they have the audacity to call themselves âGeisha Wigsâ A term which Pyro has already called out on its horrible racism.
They have like 32873264328763287Â sponsoredÂ models because they donât have to pay for wigÂ production (Cause you know, they steal wigs)Â so the money can easily go elsewhere.Â And these models are usually amateur at best? Like Iâm sorry but half the pictures are pretty basic, have a shitty filter on them, and some of them even look like camera phone pictures AND the worst part is that it usually doesnât even make the wig look good. Itâs rly off-putting??? Filters are suuuuuper bad cause they fuck with the color of the wig. This is the same for any other product. if youâre selling a product online, never put filters on the photo or it will skew the object. People wouldnât get accurate representation of the wig color and end up buying a completely shocked when they see what the wig actually looks like.
This is an actual picture representing a product on the Geisha Wigs site. Looks like a selfie. The wig looks shiny as fuck. Looks completely unprofessional to me.Â
Another amateur photo with the wig looking tacky, ratty (that middle section near her jaw, just ugh) and insanely shiny. It looks like a Party City wig but youâre being charged $23 not including shipping costs.
And they let people just post pictures of the wig like this on their facebook page:
Itâs insane. Itâs so shiny! Nevermind that they look haphazardly put on there, that looks like you could use it as reflective clothing for night-time biking.
AND the thing that pisses me off the most is that they managed to raiseÂ Â£7,138 (roughly $10,000) for this company on indie gogo. Like what??????? What are you gonna spend that money on????? You donât design or produce your wigs??? Are you just gonna get more models???? This money is literally just gonna go into their pockets. Iâm so done.
Donât even get me started on the winner of their logo contest. There were literally graphic designers saying she was making the wrong choice and then at the end of it, the company didnât use the logo at all and took it down from facebook. Just omg.
I really donât think theyâre running their business well. They have dozens of models, most of which are amateur, none of which are people of color which adds to the racism, none of which represent their wigs well. Dozens on stolen wigs, most of which are shiny, a handful are super tacky, some are advertised as âlolitaâ or âcosplayâ for no reason.
I think it all boils down to Geisha Wigs having an extreme lack of taste. The lack of an editing eye is a huge downfall for this company cause there is the occasional great wig or great photo but what they present to the public as a whole is just terrible.
And I still donât know what the company plans to do with that $10,000. Theyâve since released a handful of new wigs but that;s it. No graphic designer hired to make their site layout more appealing, no improved wig quality, more models though surpriseÂ surprise. Itâs just so disappoint cause if that money went to Lockshop, for example, they could have cut the shipping costs a lot by investing in a western seller. For Minty Mix, they could restock half their inventory. For Gothic Lolita Wigs they could do a major retsock or release even more wigs. I just donât see that money being put to good use in Geisha Wigs. Not even a little bit.
I will, however, say that I have heard no account of them scamming. Maybe the anon was referring to the taobao re-selling, which is, in fact, dishonest selling. But legally speaking I donât think much could be done. And I havenât heard account of people not getting their orders or getting overcharged or lied to etc.
While Iâm in a calling out moodâ¦
I love Lockshop to death but I really dislike who won the model competition. She just too similar to Chokelate. From the skin tone to the facial structure to the way she models, the new model offers no new dimension to the shop. I thought person who modelled the wig that won Lockshop design competition at least brought a different vibe and had a different face shape. But look!
Chokelate might as well have stayed the only model is all Iâm saying. I was really excited about this competition because I thought the aim was to bring a new dynamic to the Lockshop brand. I have been wanting so desperately to see Lockshop wigs on POC since some of the colors have the potential of looking great on tan/dark skin but some would just look off and a POC model would have done so much to help with that. Instead, weâre still stuck trying to guess and hope that the color will work.
And Iâm not saying the winner shouldnât have been light-skinned but at least someone with a different base color for their skin (green-ish or more yellow for asians) Maybe even someone plus sized? Or someone with a different face shape. I wanna see what looks good with a round face.Â
The new model is great. Donât get me wrong. Sheâs skilled. But I, as a customer, didnât reap any benefits from this competition. For wig design contest, the general public got a new wig. The Model competition was meant to offer diversity but we got the exact opposite of that.
100% spot on
