Beware/Lost Contact

Well After two years of waiting, it's over, I'm unhappy with the results, but I got a refund...

Since posting this she did contact me again, On Dec 2nd she asked for my address again and on the 4th she said she was going to ship it..I waited hoping ti would be here before the 2 or 3rd, but I got a message from her on the 25th saying

"it was supposed to go out but with holiday mess around i havent been able to get my brother to pick me up, ill get you a tracking number and shipping will be free /FYI"

This disappointed me, she had plenty of time before Christmas to ship it...I doubt it will be in on the 2nd or 3rd...I would like it for my b-day on the 7th though..But at this rate I fear I won't get it period

WHO: TheRoyalBanana/ Jing the Ranga

WHERE: Fur Affinity http://www.furaffinity.net/user/theroyalbanana/


WHAT: For a fursuit head/tail

WHEN:  First commissioned April 26th, 2011---Last reply September 28th, 2012

(first head update)
(second head update)
(last head update with old eyes)
(New eyes, not sure installed or not)
(Last message I've gotten from her)
(last message I've sent to her, asking for head, has not been read)

EXPLAIN: I contacted TheRoyalBanana/Jing the Ranga, April 26th, 2011 (Banana1), after I saw her going green deal. She had a lot of green fur after she made her first suit, and was asking if anyone wants commissions involving green. I was really interested because of one of my sona (Roger) where well green with red stripes, so I contacted her. Things went really well she was nice and gave me a grand total of $200 for a head and tail (Banana 2), which I didn't mind I thought it was great pricing! Since I was really new to fursuits I really didn't know better....I just didn't know back then it would ended up like this
On May 6 2011 I sent the first payment, (banana 3)soon after May 8th she sent me a message saying the fur and wig as been sent, May 13th she contacted me again saying the fur should be in the 13th, and asked if for my head size and info about my glasses.(banana4) May 20th came by and I sent her a message saying I would send the second payment, at the time my main paypal wasn't working, so I made a brand new account to send the money to her..Well I don't know if that was bad or not, but I send her the second payment that Friday (banana5). Sept 1st I gave her my address, and Nov 8th She gave me an update saying she was on Vacation and when she comes back she would finish my head and other heads(banana6). Dec 20th I asked if she could shipped Roger on my b-day, no reply. Next message from her would be Jan 24 2012, saying that she would update the head for free! because she saw my new ref page for my sona Roger, I was really excited and happy (banana7). March 28th I finally got an update picture (Roger1) She said she was going to redo the eyes, to the new male style (Roger
2 and Banana 8). May 29th she messaged me, saying that he was cute! And had a surprise with it (Banana9)... Jun 27th I send a message to her asking for any new info. She Replied Jul 14, saying she had a sudden trip out of town (Banana10)...Sep 14-25 Asked her if she was done with him..she says issues came up, and I said I would take what she had done (Since I've seen pics of it being done) Over a refund (Banana 12 and Banana 13)...Since then I had no messages back nor any contact Since then, even though I did send a message saying I want the head.
I resonantly asked two of her other commissioners that was on her page, One was lucky enough to get a refund (refund), the other said Banana contacted her 17 days ago , saying her head was done and was going to post pics soon (banana14), I contacted 5 SO's that was on her page, all 5 did not have any kind of contact with her, but they all met her at a con, so I know she is alive. 1 of the shouters was nice enough to give me info about this guy who I'm guessing was a secret commissioner, he got his suit a month ago and it was made by Banana..He has/had contact with her, and says that he'll get her in contact with me...Or try too, apperently she hasn't been online to him...He gave me the reason why she hasn't been on, but still just becasue of that is no way to go online and not answer me or other people who PAID you to make suits.(banana 15) I message her BF, so I'm awaiting the answer from him...I'll update when I get more info

Sorry to hear there wasn't much help in your previous post. :/
Hope she crawls from under her rock and contacts you!
Dec. 3rd, 2012 04:25 am (UTC)
Surprisingly she messaged me today...apparently she had to move again that's why she wasn't on? And she saw the A_B post...I re-gave my address to her and she says she's going to send me the head (At lease I'm getting that) And she says it's finished...I asked her when she is going to send it and I have yet to get a reply.
Dec. 3rd, 2012 04:35 am (UTC)
Should ask for pictures before she sends it off :P
Dec. 3rd, 2012 10:27 am (UTC)
I will after she replys to the when will it be send message...Which hasn't been read yet. X_X;; Why do I have a feeling she won't be on again for a while?
Dec. 3rd, 2012 07:46 pm (UTC)
:S Lets hope she doesn't up and disappear again before talking to you more, she might be handling other commissions emails/notes/etc.
Dec. 4th, 2012 04:26 pm (UTC)
^^; Still no reply, been a day so far ^^;
Dec. 6th, 2012 10:37 am (UTC)

Dec. 6th, 2012 10:46 am (UTC)
Did she send pictures? Or did you ask for some after this email?
Dec. 6th, 2012 04:00 pm (UTC)

Pics or it didn't happen! If she e-mails you saying she shipped something she should at the very least have a tracking number.
Dec. 28th, 2012 06:31 am (UTC)
Updated first post
Dec. 29th, 2012 03:01 pm (UTC)
Yea, that's a bunch of nonsense. She is just being lazy. Keep us updated OK?
Dec. 7th, 2012 05:19 am (UTC)
Just sent a message to her about pics, next one will be for tracking.
Dec. 12th, 2012 04:02 pm (UTC)
Asked for pics sun, said she will have it up on monday...It's Weds and still no pics.
Dec. 28th, 2012 06:31 am (UTC)
Updated first post.
Dec. 28th, 2012 03:38 pm (UTC)
Btw "SO" means significant other, aka her boyfriend. Sorry if I confused you with using it earlier.
Dec. 29th, 2012 06:55 am (UTC)
It's all good, I haven't receive any messages from him, she has contacted me...but seems a bit more snippy, and I don't get why she couldn't ship the head that week when she asked for my address...Also she still hasn't have any updated pics. A friend of mine is suggesting she's not going to post any pics, due to it not living up to my expectations, or it's going to look bad somehow.
Dec. 29th, 2012 05:14 pm (UTC)
Or she hasn't done anything, and your head isn't completed. Or else she would've given you pictures or shipped it when she asked for your address.
Dec. 3rd, 2012 08:17 am (UTC)
I haven't gotten any word on my suit, I've paid quite a bit of the total, and all I have left to do is give her my hand measurements again, I think. I kind of feel like going "oh well, that's what I get for commissioning a new maker," but it doesn't sit right with me. A shame, because she was super nice, too.
Dec. 3rd, 2012 10:29 am (UTC)
I know right? I really liked working with her up until this point, I really hope she contacts you too, I told her that's it's not right to leave everyone in the dark.
Jun. 6th, 2014 04:52 pm (UTC)
I know this is an old post but what happened with your suit?
Jun. 7th, 2014 07:39 am (UTC)
I've been asking for refund payments every once in a while (because I'm super dumb and forget haha) and she's been extremely prompt with them when I ask. I think I have $100 left to ask about. Either she lets me know if there will be a delay or sends it immediately. I really think she's trying to bounce back, I've seen her upload suit wips recentlyish.
Jun. 7th, 2014 03:28 pm (UTC)
Yea she is trying to. I only ask because someone I know is getting a suit made by them and I wanted to make sure she was taking care of everything else. It's good to hear because I like her suits!
Dec. 28th, 2012 06:30 am (UTC)
Updated the first post ^^;
Jan. 5th, 2013 03:37 pm (UTC)
Well After two years of waiting, it's over, I'm unhappy with the results, but I got a refund...
Jan. 5th, 2013 05:25 pm (UTC)
Would you like this marked "resolved" then?
Jan. 6th, 2013 02:19 am (UTC)
Yes I guess so, I didn't get what I wanted, I really wanted the head...But I got a refund instead.
Jan. 6th, 2013 05:14 am (UTC)
Yeah I get that, good to see you at least got your money back though!!
Jan. 6th, 2013 05:14 am (UTC)
Marked as Resolved as OP has received refund
