Need Help Finding a Key
« on: Thu, 21 November 2013, 00:56:45 »
Hello fellow geeks. a few days a ago i was looking at some pics on this site, and i came across a nice key that i want now. It looked like a white ptb with dye subed pic of audrey hepburn on it.

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

No thats not it. thats not even audrey hepburn i think. I  just went through months of post in the media section and i couldn't find it :( but if anyone does know about the key plz say so.

edit : i was able to find 1 pic. the person from the thread said they are dye subed and they are made by kbc i think.

Yeah I was pretty sure that wasn't Audrey Hepburn but I thought you might have been mistaken. You'll definitely need a proxy to get stuff from TaoBao, contact Feng and see if he can help you out!

I"m trying to make a account but its pain in the ASS. I once bought something from feng, and i never got it. It was a pain in the ass getting my money back.  Is he the only that can help me with this ? Is there anyone else that can help ?

Yeah getting an account with TaoBao won't help you anyway as they don't ship outside China. If you don't want to use Feng then try using TaoBaoFocus, I've used them for proxying before and the stuff arrived within a fortnight.

Why don't you just buy it from imsto directly? They are who made them anyway.

You can send a PM to user imsto and tell him you want the cap with the woman on this page

Hey Spamray,

do you have any experience with Imsto custom dyesubs? How much is it to get a single portrait dyesubbed? And what about getting colors added?

That picture of Audrey Hepburn looks great, but I'm wondering whether my family members would look ok when dyesubbed... hehheh. Do you email him your photos or something?

And NO, if anyone is wondering, I have no intention of taking Gutz's face (the guy on my avatar) and getting that dyesubbed. I don't feel like typing on his berserker face...

Most of the modding can be done on your own once you break through the psychological barriers.

I've only ordered keys he already had made up, so I'm not really sure. He is a really nice guy just have to make sure you explain exactly what your wanting and he will let you know if it is possible.

Register with taobao, wait 7 days, then use taobaoFOCUS website to order.  They will send to USA and the site isn't that hard to use once you get used to it. I can translate any mandarin for you as well just send me a PM.  I'm not a native speaker but I have been studying it for four years and my girlfriend is Chinese.  I need to earn some karma with this community because I'm trying to finish my KMAC but can't find the 1 x 1.5 R1 keycaps for the modifier keys, haha.
