a friendly warning

to those who are wanting to get a fursuit i have a warning do not trust or go through these people


http://lacy.timduru.org/


for 2 and a half years i have waited for a suit they told me would be ready on a certain date throughout the past 2 and a half years 5 times, and each time i asked at the end of that certain date they gave me, they told me its not ready and we should have it done on such and such date, the damn suit should of only have taken 3 months since its only a partial suit, it cost me $2000 and since i ordered it back in 2006 they have posted over 30 fur suits completed on their web page and none are mine call it drama if you want but i call it BULL SHIT!!!!

i would like to get them closed down so they can never ruin another's life like they have mine to this date from the beginning of this year they have refused to answer my e-mail even tho they still continue to post newly completed fur suits

but what i am aiming for here is not to bitch but to warn you's not to deal with them they are nothing but rip offs

and here is a update

here are the payments i sent her starting way back in august of 2006 i figured no one would believe me if i simply cut and paste so i took a screen capture of each recite so you can also see the conversion rate and what not sorry the only place i know ifor easy upload is imageshack and to stop the crap i took out some i wrote from above however it still dose not change the fact that thats what happened

the first payment $350 USD

payment 2 $350 USD

http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/2674/payment2.jpg

payment 3 $350 USD

http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/8992/payment3.jpg


payment 4 $470 USD

http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/5793/payment41.jpg

hope that makes you believe me a little bit more i'll get onto those e-mails as soon a i hunt them down and this still dose not include the extra payment of $100 USD for the second tail i ordered last year

... Suicide over a fursuit? Chill out.

You should've just filed a report against them for fraud if they really haven't done anything.

I agree with this. Fursuits are not that important to end your life over!

I did snort at the "nearly drove me to suicide" thing. Talk about melodramatic.

If everyone else is getting suits made, there must be a reason yours isn't. Are you sure you're telling us the whole story?

Mmmm, nothing like committing suicide over material possessions.

Seriously, it sucks that they stiffed you (and I have to admit, I would like a little more proof - if I'm not mistaken Lacy has a good rep. Not that people with good reps don't sometimes fall down on the job or even go bad, but it does mean you need to provide more evidence) but that just detracts from your complaint, not add to it.

Just wondering where the proof is in this really.

$2000+? Partials are half that at the most. Shoot. Not even full suits come at that price unless they're really complicated. And I can't imagine they would honestly put your suit on the back-burner if you did pay for that much anyway.

You must have done something for them to not make your suit. Hopefully they told you why.

And I'm seconding foxhack there.

Especially since their complete suits start below that price.

Also echoing FoxHack

Seems like a lot of aggression fueled on this too, and in more than just the being upset that your work wasn't done sort of way. That and the fact that you offer so little information in regards to the commission seems a little off.

The skeptic side of me almost thinks that there was never a commission in the first place and you're just throwing out claims and numbers to ruin the name of an artist that you personally don't like. Of course if that's not true then please provide more details in regards to what was commissioned, as well as some of the emails regarding the issue maybe.

Additionally, at any point did you request some sort of a partial refund at all?

Maybe we can get Lacy in here?

Contacted her to have her give any info she has.
tacet
May. 23rd, 2009 01:34 am (UTC)
It'd seem odd that if you placed an order in `06 it's still not done. But on her website, partials are 950, not 2000 or more. Less you had wings or something to add to that cost.

Her partial fursuits are 950, NOT 2000. Less you had wings or something.

Lacy seems to be a well known, but higher end fursuit maker, so I'd assume they won't be shut down and there's SOME reason yours is not done. I've seen their work and they are NOT bad suits.

Suicide over a fursuit is not worth it. I don't care what item you have or got ripped off on. That's not a reason to make your family grieve your loss. You're belittling your own case with that statement, because most of us will read it as furry drama, not something to help you with.


And if they are a total ripoff? Ask for a refund, or photos of what Lacy has done if she won't. I agree the time and other projects put head of yours are not fair. But I also get a hunch the whole story isn't put out.
armaina
May. 23rd, 2009 01:38 am (UTC)
well just to be annoyingly technical, the partials start at 950, so he either could have had some really crazy complex commission to add another 1,000 or he had so many revisions the extra charges for the changes added about that much. (And if that were the case it would explained the pushed back completion date)

That's if there ever was a real commission to begin with. but yea.. I'm just being technical heh.

Do you mean 200+ in 2006...?
I cannot imagine 2000+ for a partial, unless Lacy is secretly making them out of robots.

No fursuit = life ruined.

People are more likely to take you seriously if you don't say things like this, especially when your complaint sounds iffy at best.

You need to produce records of what has been happening, and a less dramatic account. Not everyone here are members of the furry fandom, and it's hard for us to take you seriously when you treat us like so.

Agreed. I know nothing about the furry fandom, so this whole thing is just making me laugh at the OP

It's even weirder because I know that in 2006 her prices were actually even lower than they are now. I couldn't name you an exact price, but for a long time she and I were in the same ballpark price range, and I wasn't charging anywhere near that much at the time.
