Comm - Kingyosmemaru/Akira.and.Haku

WHO: KingyYosmemaru / Akira.and.Haku both at Furaffinity.


WHAT: She had ordered a Wing-it commission from a journal I had posted about two and ahalf weeks ago, I no longer have the journal up, as I deleted it when I completed both commissions from it, but I have screenshots of our conversation after the slot had been accepted.

WHEN: About 2 and a-half weeks ago, September 1-3rd, I believe would be a good estimate.

PROOF: Here is the listing of all correspondence I had with her, She asked if she could send payment initially during the sketching stage, which I told her it’d be fine to do at the flat stage, she agreed. * Replies with any smiley faces are hers, I don't normally use them when discussing commissions.

This shows my un-read notes, And a note that states I will report her to Artist Beware if she doesn’t atleast speak to me, aswell as shows that she HAS been on and watching people. (( I’m only reporting this today, because once again. I can see she’s watched four people since this morning.)) And the shouts I’ve left on her page, incase she deletes them. (( White’d out line is my Paypal.))

The finished Commission.

EXPLAIN: I never thought I’d have to post a Artist Beware, too be honest I thought I would’ve been posted on here due to some idiotic things I had done when initially starting commissions. I’ve never had a issue like this, someone not paying me for my services. So I’m deeply saddened by this as she was very responsive and kind when talking with me. I was a idiot and finished her commission, as I was motivated and excited to be working on it or her. She asked for some edits which I accepted to do.. and then she never replied back. I’ve since switched to doing invoices and a more acceptable payment procedure. But I know she commissions other people, so I’m just putting this up here in-case it happens again.

Edits for spelling.

Update, 9/29/2014.
Kingyosmemaru has gotten back into contact with me to work something out.

Artist Beware - Sugarfactory (resolved)



WHAT: A box with fursuit accesoires, which was included in our deal about buying a second-hand partial.

WHEN: I started contact around April 2013. It's now been 17 months since I didn't get the box she promised she will send.

PROOF: Where to start ;) These are screenshots from skype.
She said she would include the extra if I would fo with the buyout deal ($1100) .
8th May 2013, promising more stuff:
19th May 2013: My box arrived but not everything was included (the extra's). Checking with her
25 June 2013: Promising her a box in return:
27 June 2013: She wanted to include in the box a set of extra handpaws since the ones I got in the buyout deal weren't in good condition.
11 November 2013: Telling her to skip the handpaws if must because I really would love my stuff at some point.
13 January 2014: She keeps stating she will send the box and is working on it...
15 March 2014: I've send her my box, with worth over 120$ of stuff. Also she promises me a tracking even without sending anything.
21 March 2014: She lost the tracking it seems..
25 March 2014: Yes she lost it And I never received the package since. but wait a minute? the fursuitaccesoires weren't included?
9 May 2014: An excuse for not sending the box.
21 May 2014: Saying to stop putting anything in the box extra and just send it to me.
May 2014: Ignoring me
5 June 2014: I wrote a message to her that I was despressed with not getting anything . also saying that I would love to pay to get it here
24 July 2014: She's sending a box soon, because she's selling another suit, asking her if she will send mine too..
29 August 2014: Her fursuit she sold, has arrived at the new owner. Mine again... not send.
Today (27 September): First time I ever EVER see a picture of stuff that would been send my way. But where's the bandana's? Jail-Plushie? Only recognizable thing is the tail.

I can give you a lot more screenshots if you like.

Sugarfactory sold her fursuitpartial "Jail" from OneEyedDoe in April 2013. She said if I would get the buyoutdeal instead of bidding, I would get extra's. As you can see in the links, she later promised more and more stuff. I was so exciting and I thought we were really friends.
THANK GOD I've received the most important part: the partial. The fursuit is with me and I'm suiting with it over 1,5 years now, I'm really thankful for that.
It surprised me that she didn't send everything that was in our deal in that first fursuit box (19th may). Also later suddently, in a second box that never arrived, she said that the fursuitstuff weren't included (25th of March.)
One thing that made the package take long was that she commissioned extra handpaws because mine were a bit old now, at Autumnfallings. But they took so long that I said to her to get her money back, leave them out of our deal, and just send me the box.
I also though that sending a box back, would help our friendship. I did send a box with Dutch treats and candy and toys, but never got a box from her back. Lost? Never been send? I'm not sure.
The problem since the beginning was:

- She said she will send it <..insert day here..>
- She said it failed <..insert excuse here..>.

Really, she gave every excuse possible. No money, sick, floodings, postal office closed, adress lost, busy, ow and when she had no money I offered to pay the shipping, but she refused.
I even have PROOF that she send out other boxes and stuff as well.. but why not MINE? (The second fursuit she sells 29 August) The only thing I said over the last YEAR was "Please when will the box be send?" and than the above steps took place.

She stated later that, this box she owes me are all GIFTS and she can take the time she needs

Update (29-9-2014): Sugarfactory promised to send out the box this Monday. The content is discussed. I will update when I received a working Track&Trace.
Update (6-10-2014)  Package send 1 oct. Tracking works and it's on its way to Europe

About the critique in the comments below:
Yes, I used some inmature language and was angry. I read the termes about keeping it polite on this forum but I didn't always keep that in mind and I'm sorry for this.
