Who: Dark-Dragoncat http://www.furaffinity.net/user/dark-dragoncat
When: Beginning of January 2012
Where: In person/fa
What: Got materials and paid for feet, never got them.
Proof: Verbal agreement/talked bout it on the phone and online/goods were exchanged in person etc.


Back in December 2011, I talked with Dragoncat about possibly making me some kind of feet.
She said if I got the slippers/shoes and ordered the fur, she would make them for me.
Granted in all it only cost me about 70 bucks, but I paid for them/gave her the materials
back in the first week of January 2012.

I asked her if they could be done by Anime Boston 2012, which was back on April 6th, more time goes
by and it's almost time for Anthrocon which was around June 14th.

Every time I ask and or if she has an idea of when she can finish it she just says she has been busy etc,
which is true for anyone, but it has been 6 months now.

Around may I asked and said it has been like 5 months or so, is somethign going on and she tells me to
sit tight and that I am practically getting free feet,

I asked about it again recently, I have a screen shot of the message: http://i.imgur.com/17h6r.jpg
But that was sent today.
I will try and find the older messages, but I am uncertain if I can find them.

I'd also like to chime in and say that any supporting evidence like screencaps of prior notes (if there are any) would be greatly appreciated.

i will try, looking through old e-mails.
all my old text messages and fa notes get deleted weekly.
Hoping to see if I still have some e-mails.

On one hand, I can sympathize with the artist since it's a free-labor commission, however I -do- understand your frustration and the validity of the post.

When was the last time you saw a progress picture from her? (Can you link it?)

Lookin' good, DC. Thanks for the picture post!

Also, to the OP:
You bought her shoes and fur, but did you buy any of the other material for her to complete the order? (Foam for the toes, thread, hot glue, bottom material for the sole of the foot???) If you only gave her half the material to finish the project, it's no wonder they haven't been completed yet.

I'm not sure I follow the logic here. The maker agreed to this deal. How is it "no wonder" if the OP didn't buy everything, when the maker didn't ask them to?

I mean, if the maker had said "buy the fur, foam, hot glue, etc." and they hadn't, I'd see it, but as far as I can tell the OP bought everything the maker asked for.

Correct, I only got fur and slippers/shoes.

Looks like the artist is willing to resolve this with you, hopefully it works out!

Should I make a new post or just reply to this one?
It has been a full year since the original payment date.
Jan. 7th, 2013 07:30 pm (UTC)
If its in regard to this specific transaction, then adding an update this post (and leaving a comment so the mods are notified) is just fine!

Been a full year from the original transaction date.
Talked/posted here back in July.
No word/update. Last update from May/June with pic updates.
Don't know if I will get them or a refund for the materials and such.
