Explain: Bandicoot is a local-ish fur that is on our state fur group. In February she posted a few pictures of her felt badges done for other local furs in the group. I got a liking to them and asked for two, for my boyfriend and I. Paid the same day and was told they would be finished within 2-3 days. I sent over a private message for an update and was told they were mostly finished.

We had a fursuit build party coming around, which was perfect for her to bring them by instead of mailing them. Came to the party and I can't remember the reason she didn't bring them. No biggie. She said they would be shipped to me when she got home. After that, no further contact.

Around the 25th of August a couple of friends of mine drove up to meet with Bandicoot to visit and other personal reasons. Again, I asked about my badges and given another explanation of them being misplaced in her home. A bit annoyed but brushed it off and said okay and asked to keep me updated if they turned up somewhere.

This was the last reply I got and no response since, during all that she has been online and posting freely. Why is it so hard to mail them to me? I have not asked for a refund due them being completed, yet no proof that they are. Just have that bit of hope to them being done as she stated.

Update: 10/9/14 That was the last time she contacted back than unfriend my from FB. She has ignored others whom she owes to boot. So I'll be counting this as a loss.

Do not commission this artist. You'll receive every excuse in the book and no product.

I had kind of the same issue with receiving my badge from her.

I paid, it was done within a day (paid February 12, got a picture of it on the 13th), but any messages I sent her regarding meeting her locally to pick it up, or even paying her to have it mailed to me were read and not responded to. I did end up receiving my badge when I physically went down on the 26th though.

I do not understand why it's so hard for artists to go to the post office - or print postage at home so packages can be picked up by the mail carrier - but I've seen this kind of complaint time and time again!

My apologies for a very late response. Constantly busy but I agree.

Not too hard counting the fact it's close by in her general location I believe.
