Rabidboi

Has anyone here had experience with getting a badge from rabidboi? I ask because at FWA this year I paid for a badge from her for my friend, Allik that I never received. I could plainly see that it was half way done before the end of the con, and she tells me each time it is done, all she needs to do is mail it. I'm curious to know if she owes anyone else a badge as well, considering the fact she goes to cons, and taking commissions seems to be the way she funds her way while there.
I've contacted her about my badge countless times over the past few months, and usually she is pretty good about responding, and promises to get me my badge. But then I wait and still nothing. I realize she has had a some in-real-life problems forcing her to move a bit this year and loose her job, yet she still manages to make it to all these cons. I wanted to post this prior to MFM to see if anyone else is waiting on a badge from her, and as a preemptive warning in the event of anyone else commissioning her. I don't want to say for sure yet "Don't commission her" because she does seem friendly and I might be the only person left in this situation. But I do think that 7 months is quite a long time to wait for a badge that is already finished, and each time I contact her about it I get this new crisis in her life, and then I read about her going to a con. So in the interest of seeing that no one else is shortchanged, I'm wondering if I'm not the only one waiting for a commission.

Edit - Ok this post is now over a month old and I'm still getting new comments about it NOT PERTAINING TO RABID BOI'S BUSINESS. This is ARTIST BEWARE therefore unless you have an experience with her deals with art or her business, please refrain from posting on this thread. I will leave this up in the event that people need to know about her in terms of commissions, but the rest of the personal drama stuff I'm going to ask to be frozen.

Edit -November 26 2008,
I have finally received my Rabidboi badge in the mail. I will leave this post up for reference, but the matter has finally been resolved.
Thanks

Well that's the thing. If you get her to get it done at the con, you're ok. When she takes it home is when you'll never see it again

I commissioned her for a sketch at FWA. Told her what I wanted, got something completely different and rather insulting, of my son's character being dangling over water and almost fed to a shark. Really, REALLY pissed me off. It was pretty hard to control my temper long enough to even get out of sight before throwing it away.

Needless to say, not a person I'll commission again.

WTF

Maybe you should consider making your own post about her, that's pretty nasty.

I've had really horrible times with how picky she is with having her own characters drawn.
As well as a very bad experience with her on a personal basis... There are things to be said about people who disregard others and promises as well as business related deals.

She's really sensitive to criticism and unprofessional, so I would say that avoiding her and going with a better artist who is more reliable would be anyone's safest bet.

As for her history of crisis, it extends back to early 2005. Something about cheating on a soldier husband and being a satanist, or something else childish and extreme.

I remember meeting here at FWA that year and her telling me her Marine husband who was in Iraq and her were getting a divorce. Apparently he is a white supermicist from what I remember too.
I didn't want to bring up personal issues with her because they aren't business related, but when I posted this on my journal, lots of people had stories to share about her pertaining to her erratic strange behavior.
What fumes me is that even though she goes from personal crises to crises she still manages to make it to all these cons, which then consequently lead to her losing her job/place to live. Its been two weeks since I posted this and still no badge, which I'm suppose now I'll never see.
I think if anything should result out of me and others posting about her in this community it should be to show her she can't treat customers like this, and she can't keep going to cons when she doesn't have the finical means to do so and take people's money and never deliver.

Oh My God
Why has no one contacted me?! Why do you all feel it better to gossip about me behind my back? I DO NOT TAKE MIND ALTERING SUBSTANCES! EVER! What is wrong with you people. wolfmare I drew what I drew because YOU WANTED me to draw it! I NEVER draw what people don't want me to! Unless they give me free reign on the image! ANGEL I have the damned badge! The things I have told you are all true. I will admit 7 months is a long time but I have reasons! If my life gets in the way of my art I will not apologize for that! Wolfmare! Oh my god man! Why didn't you just tell me! Im sorry I offended you but Im not sorry for the art in which you paid for! That was years ago and My art sucked then! I will admit that I'm hard to get along with but I am truly a good person and I do what I can to make people happy. IF YOU FREAKING PEOPLE WOULD JUST TALK TO ME instead of freaking out behind my back things wouldn't have gotten this far! I'm on the verge of tears right now and I am thoroughly confused! I couldn't even get through half this journal entry with out my hand shaking from the shock! YOU DAMNED FURRIES NEED TO TALK BEFORE YOU ACT! TALK TO ME IF YOU FIND SOMETHING WRONG! Don't just take it upon yourselves to try and make me out to the be someone I AM NOT!

Otherwise I'M SORRY you guys feel the way you do about me. I cant please everyone and I realize this now. If anyone feels their art is not worth it I will draw new art for you, better art and if that isn't good enough well I will do what I can to refund your money. I'm truly sorry you guys feel this way about me. I am the kind of person who gives people the benefit of the doubt. I wont be doing that any longer.

IF ANY of you have anything you wish to discuss with me contact me on YIM at rabidboi83 or email at rabidboi@gmail.com! Im sure we can come to some kind of truce. I don't believe I deserve any of this and I want to make it right.

Re: Oh My God
That wasn't "years ago". That was in February. And for $10, it's not worth the hassle to fight over, which is part of why I haven't bothered making a post on here. I won't raise hell over it, but nor will I commission anything else, and that's the end of it.

o.o
You all are the reason why most people see furries as selfish, stupid, and inconsiderate. You're spending your time on the internet bashing once of the most wonderful, caring, and talented people I know. I have the pleasure of living with Rabid Boi, and I've witnessed nothing but good things during the period. I honestly think it's pathetic that you have to say hurtful things about someone that you don't even know on a personal level. Maybe if you had cared enough you would have actually tried to find out what was wrong in her life before condemning her. Learn to accept for people who they are and open your mind to new things. What she does in her personal life should not give you reason to place judgement on her professional life. I see your badge. She has it here. You never really even bothered to ask, did you? Or did you even ask for your money back? Your post is pathetic, and furries like you are the reason I have no respect. Be a stronger person and think of somebody other than yourself for once in your shitty life.

Wow lulz. Lets take this to a whole new level. I don't even want the badge anymore. The determint rabidboi's reputation and her fan bois like you have done to her in this post if far worse than I could ever do.
Don't even worry about the badge. I'll happily pay 10 bucks for the notion that people will read this and not commission her.

EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN ME RIGHT THE FUCK NOW! Are you listening? Awesome.

1. I NEVER CLAIMED TO BE PROFESSIONAL.
2. This entire blog started out fine. Though It ended up to be disgusting and honestly sad.
3. I AM SENDING YOU YOUR BADGE ANGEL cause as far as I am concerned you paid good money for it and its worth it. Tear it up and throw it away for I care when you get it but dammit I finished it and Dammit I'm sending it to you.
4. As to everyone else who thinks they know me from Paris Hilton get the fuck off my case! You don't know me and you do NOT have the right to judge me AT ALL! I didn't want to scream at anyone but this is just sickening!
5. IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO FUCKING SAY TO ME SAY IT TO ME IN IM OR EMAIL ME! I put my damned information up and this BLOG has got to stop! And just to send this part home my contact info is rabidboi83 on yahoo or rabidboi83@gmail.com.
6. I AM NOT RUDE! If you can't tell the difference that's not my god damned problem. I have the gall to be OPEN to people and NOT worry about this societies hang ups. THAT'S why I became a furry in the first place, I thought this community would be more OPEN minded than this. I guess I was wrong.
7. ITS things like this that cause decent artists like me to go into hiding and I am SERIOUSLY contemplating that right now. NOT Because of you guys, but to prevent this shit from happening. NON OF YOU LISTEN TO what needs to be heard and its just ridiculous.

I want people to commission me and not for the money, but because I ENJOY drawing for you guys. If you people can't see that, I am ashamed to call myself a furry artist.

IVE GONE OUT OF MY Way to turn this post into something positive and you guys just can't pull your dicks out of your asses to listen to ME! The ARTIST IN QUESTION!

I NEVER BORROWED MONEY FROM FRIENDS TO GO TO CONS! My friends KNOW me and trust me unlike you jerk-offs and know that I would do what I could to pay them back. I NEVER LOST MY JOB going to a con nor my home.

MY lack of a job right now is no of any ones business but my OWN.

I NEVER CHEATED ON MY GOD DAMNED DICK OF A HUSBAND! That also Is no of any ones business.

SEE if any of you would just put some effort into CONTACTING Me and figuring out the TRUTH then maybe I wouldn't be so damned disappointed in all of you.

THIS ENDS HERE AND NOW! Got a fucking problem with me TELL ME! Don't be whiny high school fuck lards and act like the grown ups I hope most of you are! GOD!

I find three intresting things about this post.
one....its as lot of talk over a 10 dollar commisson. I have empathy for the individual in some earlier posts who lost $675 dollars on a bad commission but 10 dollars as a reason to trash someone? Sheesh!

two.... I think i read thru this all the way, and I dont remeber seeing anyone else who didnt get a drawing after they paid? wasnt that the entire jist of this post? To see if anyone else didnt get a drawing after they paid for it? Rabid did two badges for me at two seperate cons.The first she sat down and did right away because I was the first to approach her. The next time she did one for my son and it wasnt done til sunday because she re-did it, artistic temperment and all that, but she got it to me and he has it on his wall.-shrug-

three....what differnce does it make whether she eats babys if people get the art? Of ALL the people to be throwing rocks I would think the people in the silicon houses would defer to some path of understanding.


My 9 year old loves furry cons and so I try to take him and I am always hearing about how horrible and preverted "Furries" are. Whats so strange is everyone I have met at cons are really nice people and happily out of 4 cons he has attended I have yet to see any of the horrible things the general public accuses furries of.......well, until now.

I guess I just need to keep him away from the visciousness on LJ where people feel its okay to be mean cause its just the internet.

Rabid is okay, does decent art and if the worst anyone can say is that she messed up on one persons order but says she will do it, or that she did the art but I didnt like it so I tore it up.

Well hell people, Da Vinci should have such glowing reveiws.


and as to angel kitty.....

"Wow lulz. Lets take this to a whole new level. I don't even want the badge anymore. The determint rabidboi's reputation and her fan bois like you have done to her in this post if far worse than I could ever do.

I dont have to meet you to see how vindictive this post was from the start. you make it clear with that statment.


I am glad all this made you happy as its obvious you dont get that way without a lot of Schadenfreude.

Re: I find three intresting things about this post.
Yeah its 10 dollars, so I'm not too concerned any more because I'm not getting this badge. I posted this because I wanted to see if other people had been robbed, considering the fact that despite her not getting my badge nor having a job she still gets to go to cons. I made sure to ask people and keep this as drama free as possible. Its not a big enough thing to presue, but Rabid boi and her dramarific fan bois surely made it this way.

My intention was to warn people about her, and see if I had not been the only one robbed, not set out to vindictively ruin her. But because of her reaction to this post, I think she has done that for me. So no don't worry about the badge. I actually got 2 better badges from friends who felt sorry for my friend and how she fucked him over.

She's done left the fandom now apparently, so I think this is too late to do anything about...
But at least its up here for reference...
