After those two things happened, Carlos finally posted on his FB timeline apologizing. Still no refund. Still no corset. Still no response other than that FB post, in which Carlos asked that his customers refrain from contacting anyone not involved with the situation, since Carlos is "solely responsible."

There's a bit more to the story, but I don't want to ramble too long. My lawyer, who also happens to be my dad, has gotten involved now and I don't know what's going to happen. I do know, this being my first time actually commissioning an item rather than making it myself, that I will be steering clear of the process in the future. I'd rather have a half-ass item I made myself than go through all this again.
I'm glad Yaya took the time to actually contact the guy. She is one of those very well-known cosplayers that actually helps other people out and doesn't sit on a high horse. However, I still think it is bad on his part to not refund you your money, but he isn't getting endorsed by Yaya anymore either. At least your father is a lawyer, I really hope he gets this sorted out for you
