Artist Beware: Dreamsandnightmares (fa)

WHO: dreamsandnightmares Dreamsandnightmares (FA).

WHERE: www.furaffinity.net/user/dreamsandnightmares

WHAT: Rave Fluffles (Feetpaws with leg warmers, giving the illusion of digigrade legs)

http://i50.tinypic.com/2psrura.png First contact

WHEN: Around beginning of july. As seen above.
List of emails sent:

PROOF:  http://i46.tinypic.com/2z750dx.png Payments and partial refund (Before the product arrived in it's horrid state)

EXPLAIN: I just received my rave fluffies from dreamsandnightmares which should look like this :http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7514152/ but pure black and with paws. I mean they kinda look like that, but looks like they were just thrown together This is the image they sent me http://www.iaza.com/work/121231C/iaza18601984269100.jpg  In this picture they do not look too bad, so I thought they were alright, so I agreed to finally have them shipped to me. Upon getting them I noticed the following: The soles of the shoes are already falling apart, so is the foam inside of the arch. They are extremely itchy due to all of the lose fur that is collected on them (which I understand happens, but minor clean up could of solved this.) Glue is very visible on them, as well is a gap where the fur wasn't glued to the shoe. I was very excited to receive them after 5 months, but am very displeased with the condition they are in for how long they have had them (more than double the time given to me). They look as if they were just carelessly put together. They did give me a pair of foam with fur on them (ears) and a pewter wolf necklace along with a partial refund before shipment due to how long it took to have them and the continuous missed deadlines. I Sent them an email explaining my displeasment about the said items and what I have found wrong so far. I have only gotten this morning (20 mins ago, as of Jan 4th) and I am already in tears, and not good ones. :((

None of those iaza links work for me, why are you using tinypic and that site for pics?
Jan. 18th, 2013 10:48 am (UTC)
The iaza links are to the same picture; if you add a "?" to the end of the url in the address bar, it should work.

Edit; works. Was an iOS issue!

I threw the iaza image of the product up on Imgur for the op:
Jan. 18th, 2013 08:43 pm (UTC)
Timed out :<
But with the "?" at the end they work, just wanted to inform them the links weren't working other than that I have nothing constructive to add to their case.

I actually think they look pretty cool, and would probably wear them- but it is hard to see the construction errors in the product that the OP has described(like the bottoms) without seeing that in a photo.

But the missed deadlines and paranoid comment about the buyer just buying the product to pick their work apart(which leads me to believe they must have been feeling a bit defensive about the work when they sent it out)in the last few replies is enough to make this an unpleasant transaction at the least.

Ms./Mr. Moore any chance you could take some close ups of the glue and other problems? I actually love the look of those 'floofs' and would like to see what I would actually be getting.

Oh wait they have closed up shop permanently-

I guess you may not have been the only person with an issue OP

Jan. 19th, 2013 09:40 pm (UTC)
They seem to be making a big deal of it in a silly way.
A submission, a slightly unprofessional line in the profile, that journal...
Thanks for posting this OP. I'm not sure about the product you received but I'll know to avoid this person in the future

Hey <3 I was just reading through ,i don't normally comment on anything but i noticed you used iaza for an image ,iaza deletes any images after 90days so it wouldn't be best to use such a website for an artist-beware ^o^

I'd suggesting using your Livejournal gallery to upload the images into, that way we won't get deeplinking warnings and they won't be removed in a while.

Are there any updates about this? Your post appears to have been in moderator-approval limbo for a while now.
Jan. 19th, 2013 01:16 am (UTC)
Can you use an LJ gallery if you're not using an LJ account to post here? It looks like this person posted using their Facebook account.
Jan. 19th, 2013 11:59 am (UTC)
Oh hrmm, doesn't facebook also allow for uploading images tho?
Jan. 20th, 2013 02:15 am (UTC)
That's a good point. I think the only issue that would come of that, though, would be if the OP had a restriction on their account that only allowed friends to see pictures.
Jan. 27th, 2013 08:33 pm (UTC)
Wow, that's unfortunate.
I hope you get some sort of condolence for the damages.
Jan. 29th, 2013 02:58 am (UTC)

I'm one of the members of dreams and nightmares. We closed shop due to time constraints, and living situations sadly.

I hadn't gotten an email back yet on if the OP wanted a paw fix or not, which i'm still willing to do. I regret not getting things done sooner, or better than my own craft quality could allow. I had received tips on how to fix things better, and intend to fix the paws to the best of my ability - if she so desires.

I apologized for my behavior already in the emails, but i'll apologize again for any grief it might have caused the OP. The words i'd said were out of heartbreak and stress - which was unprofessional of me. The whole experience has really taught me and my partner a lot.
