WHAT: Fursuit parts, art, refund
WHEN: about 5 months ago [it is now feb 2014] I commissioned this artist to help them start up a fursuit making buisness. They were super friendly and helpfull to start with, but soon changed.
We bought fur from Sugar Factory on FA, and waited a month for it, never saw it. Then come to find out that the fur was never shipped and SF was in the ER.
SO, I asked tooth for my money back, and was willing to give LOTS of time since she was out the $70 i gave her from never getting the fur or money back from SF.
After a while, I see tooth is getting art from other people and begging for money. So I ontacted them several times to ask for my money back.
The following images shows my warning to report them, as well as conversations between us on the matter.

http://oi59.tinypic.com/fux7xl.jpg Here they are blaming SF for their lack of money, which i understood at first, but soon learned they just enjoy blaming others.

http://oi60.tinypic.com/2le5cgk.jpg both of these are examples of ALL their journals asking and begging for commissions
http://oi58.tinypic.com/2s67p1w.jpg at one point, Tooth posted a journal asking for someone to make them pants, and that they would pay for them [aka-commission pants from someone] So I confronted them about it.
http://oi60.tinypic.com/2jdfkzs.jpg here they said they had a spare $15 and used it to commission someone before paying not only me, but many people back. No, that $15 is not yours, its ours, and you used it~
As of Feb 25 2014 I still have not gotten my money back.
EXPLAIN: I think I covered it all above. The person begs for money and never refunds. If they can not take care of a fursuit making commission, they should not offer them in the first place. Fursuiting takes a lot of time, money, and effort, and Tooth doesnt seem to care about others unless it is quick, cheap digital art.
[edit while im typing]
they replied to me with the following
and a journal post as well
[edit March 10th 2014]
She tried commissioning a fellow artist, and when told she should be refunding people instead of buying art, here was her reply
I went to her page in rage, and tried to post a reply.
She is not, and never has been on my block list, in hopes she would turn herself around.
in short, she still is lying....

Tooth asked for my paypal twice, and when i went to reply, they had me on my block list again
[edit march 19th 2014]
she removed me to message me again, but tried to pity party with the whole "emergency dog fund" thing
[edit march 24th 2014]
she gave me $20 back, still owes me a lot more, but she keeps saying "im taking it out of my dogs funds, so be happy"
[edit march 30th 2014]
i got another $20 from her, but when looking thru her journals, i hear shes going to be homless, and then a few hours later, after people had given her money, she posted this.
still seems very shady, but i could be wrong.
Either way, shes spending money people give her without refunding others.
[EDIT JUNE 13 2014]
Tooth has finally paid me back in full, and no longer has me blocked from what I can tell. She is no longer using curse terms in her messages, and does not go out of her way to contact me or speak rude of me.
I am STILL getting messages from others asking if Tooth is still a problem, as they too need to be refunded, and I shall link them to this post.
I, Aspen, have been refunded and have no more dealings with Tooth.
The rest of you can take this situation as you will.
I wash my hands of this affair.
My side has been resolved.
