In need of some help

I'm in some need of help, I commissioned someone over on FA for a fursuit head. I traded them over 400$ worth of Pokemon items for the head, we agreed on a deadline of March 22nd about 5 months in advance. So I've been waiting around 7 months for this, not a huge deal I know, and I'm willing to wait more, it's just I haven't gotten ANY W.I.P pictures. I have asked several times for some, and this person made several now broken promises to send me some. I was thinking that if the head isn't done on the 22nd I will set a firm line, eather give me SEVERAL W.I.P photos, send back all of my items, or pay me over 400$ as a form of a refund. Is that a rational action to take? Is it to harsh? And to the fursuit builders out there, is it really that hard to send some W.I.P photos to a paying customer? I mean I do take art commissions, and I have no problem giving updates/W.I.P photos.

EDIT: Whoops I meant 400 not 4000, sorry.
