2 years to long.

Okay, I’ve been very hesitant about brining this situation up in public, but I’m quite frustrated at this point, so here it goes.

I commissioned a partial fursuit from chapeljax back on July 31, 2004, right after Anthrocon. I paid the full amount immediately of 470 USD via paypal and sent my character reference at that time as well. It has been 2 years and I have seen nothing but a single arm paw (photograph) since then. I have emailed repeatedly, attempting to establish completion dates at –least- 2 months in advance. All attempts have failed. I have been informed that my suit is 65% complete. I have asked to see photos, which I think is quite reasonable considering the circumstances, yet I have not been granted any (save for the arm stated above). If even a foamed head or –something- that would put me at ease a little. I have emailed Jax twice in the past week + a few days and have received no response. I posted in his LJ, where he informed me that the first email did not go through. I emailed the second time and have not received any reply. Does he not answer his gmail account? Do I have the wrong email or what? I know fursuit construction is –not- easy work, but neither is continuing to be ever so patient after shelling out 470 USD for a service over 2 years ago and having almost nothing to show for it.

Wow. Any one else having issues?

I apologize and I’m not trying to get the wambulance involved, but I think I have a right to say –something-.

Phew, that's good to know! Hey, your head looks really great!!! I'm so excited to see that you're pleased with it and that there's a little bit of light at the end of a dark tunnel, so to say. I think the communication issue is what has stired me up the most. That and, being denied progress photos on all occasions asked. I believe too, that he will complete every piece on that list eventually, and with utmost care for the quality of his work, but I'm justly alarmed at the inactivity over the past 6+ months and want nothing more than to get a message across that "Hey I'm still here and Halloween is just around the corner, for the -3rd- time..."
