So I was looking to commission a costume by AWA (september 27th). I posted in the marketplace; gosh back around February or April. I got some response from people out of my price range until this person came along "i-cosplay".
He promised a reasonable price and seemed legit. We emailed back and forth a little him supposedly getting the specifics I wanted ect.
So, he required a $5 deposit on the commission. I didn't think this was too weird.. I've delt with people who have done the same things to make sure the buyer was serious.
This was paid in April.
So it's now September and within two weeks to my convention.. I have not been notified about anything, not to pay the rest, not to say "sorry we can't do it" ect ect. They just have my $5. I know it's not a big deal and it's not the entire cost but still.
Also, they refuse to answer PMs on here, the given email address must have been closed because my emails are sent back to me. I've had it.
By the way for for reference.. here is the site AND proof I have commissioned them.
