EDIT:Beware Miharu Okami

EDIT: On 2/12/11 my suit was finally delivered. Almost a month after it was shipped. They should have left it lost. The hand paws are two different sizes, one is huge and one i cant even get my hand into. The tail is falling apart with a curved tip to it?! And the head is just something else. The eyes are barely hanging on, are lop sided. The muzzle doesnt close and looks like its making an =0 face. And the fur was poorly shaved. I was told I could have told her about the face and she would have changed it...well i NEVER got a frontal pic, only side ones so it looked okay from the picture. JUST don't order from her. She takes forever, has a VERY rushed and unprofessional product.

So back on 8/24/10 I ordered my partial. She said she would have it done by FF. I got updates of the head and was in constant contact so I thought everything was good. A week before FF, it turns out she never finished, I was pissed but she said she would have it the next week. It is now 1/29/11 and I still don't have my suit. Two weeks ago I was told she was shipped out. Then when I told her I never got her, the truth came out...

She had left the suit with Keryu. Not done and just left it for her to finish. I found this out from keryu's boyfriend. She admitted to it being too much and not being able to do it. She said she never should have never taken my commission. Keryu finished my suit and sent it out....guess what, I still don't have it. Don't know if it got lost in the mail...or what.

Never use her...save your self the heartache.

Link to their pages please (have never heard of these people) and have you asked keryu for a tracking number?

I have one and it says the package can no longer be tracked online. Upuntil MOnday it said tuesday was the delivery date...it never came and never said it was delivered. not sure what that even means now.

Errr, that sounds bizarre. Have you tried calling the mailing service?

I opened a ticket with the post office, it takes about a week to find out whats going on. Its on the post office's end and if they lost it, it was insured so I just get my money back and go to a differnt maker to get a good suit and no headache.

Was it shipped internationally? I've only ever recieved a message similar to that when my family mailed me something from the UK (to the US.)

She said she never should have never taken my commission.

So she should have refunded you what money she didn't spend, and ship the supplies she had bought to you so that you'd get another maker to do your project for you. Just 'giving up' and then handing it off to another maker without your prior notice (and to hear about it through a 3rd party? Ugh), much less an agreement is really bad on her.

But like Shukivengeance requested, a few links to these pages and the like would be helpful.

Because Keryu finished the suit that wasnt hers and sent it out, she didnt do anything wrong.

I commissioned Miharu earlier last year. And while I got the fursuit from her (after the deadline it was supposed to meet), the experience was less than pleasent and rather threw me off liking the suit she sent me all together.

She does not answer Note's after she has read them, despite being asked to reply right away and it can sometimes take several tries for her to finally answer. Her sewing machine apparently broke down part way through sewing my suit, so most of it was poorly handstitched (despite her claiming to be a master handstitcher)and instead of a zipper, a Velcro-strap was hot glued to the body.... so I cant even replace it myself without having to cut the glued fur off and ruin the back markings. Plenty of holes I can put my fingers through, and visible foam at some places.

Miharu took on too many fursuit commissions for being a beginner and cannot keep a deadline properly. I got one WIP picture of a foam head, then a picture of the complete suit just after she mailed it out, since she apparently could not get a hold of a camera to take a picture beforehand...

All of these excuses I have heard as well. Quite sad really.

Re: Both sides to every story
i dont think you're supposed to tell people when they've been posted here actually. unless being used as a threat.

Re: Both sides to every story
Well, it's okay for the person being warned about to know they've been posted here so they can give their side of the story... as long as you're involved somehow. We don't want random people running off to the accused's page going HAHA YOU'RE ON AB. We can't physically stop people from doing so, but it does fall under our 'Don't harass people that show up on here' rule, so it might get you banned.

it doesnt matter how much the product is. what matters is you promised an item of certain quality for a certain amount and you didnt meet that.

In truth the only reason I did not ask for it to be fixed, is due to the fact you already had several commissioners breathing down your neck waiting for suits, and I was just finished with dealing with you.

I looked over my notes and you offered to refund me 200$ and send a partial. That would still be paying 250$ for a suit you yourself just said, was only your second suit, and of lower-quality. (Well not lower, just beginner)

You glued seams and the very day I got it, the fur was starting to come away on the nose and curl up. THE FIRST DAY. No matter where I look on the suit, corners have been cut. The seams are sloppily sewn, the markings have holes in them, the tail-tip is already coming apart, the foam on the legs were already popped open since there was just a small smear of glue keeping it together, and the seams did not even meet up on the feet and when the fur was pushed to the side, foam was visible. As well, you just glued some velt to the paws, without trimming the fur beneath or anything, so it looks rather poorly done. (Oh, and you left a few pins in the feet. Just like... two, but I understand how you can loose them in a mass of foam... still wakes you up when stepped on.

In no way did you offer me a refund, materials, AND what you had finished. (Not from what I can find in the notes, if you can direct me towards the note, I would be much obliged)

Yes that tail was my fault but you really shouldn't bash someone since you don't know the whole story, thanks so much.

if keryus involved shouldnt her name be on it? sure the problem is mainly with you, but she still plays a part no matter how small it may be.

Hello, I will tag this post as resolved however I will have to screen your comments, as you didn't censor real names from the paypal screencap.
Sep. 29th, 2014 06:54 pm (UTC)
My apologies.
