Yeah she's trying to hide. She has multiple emails and has not responded to a single one. I have told PayPal what is going on and while for now they won't provide me with a refund I am thinking that if enough people complain about her they will have to do something.

They might but I'm not sure.
Her trying to hide is only making matters worse. If she'd just man up and tell everyone what is going on, maybe some people might be nice about it. I expect to see her DA deactivated at some point, especially with her trying to hide.

Sadly, all PayPal will do is flag her account. It will save others from getting scammed, but you won't get your money back from PayPal. I'm going through the same thing with another seller. The only way you may see that money if she doesn't send it herself is to prove some sort of fraudulent charge. Doesn't seem like that could be the case here though. Maybe try your bank. If not, banning together to pursue legal action might be an option.

It seems I'm the only one who got my costume. I did get a deviantART message from her on July 4th. A response to my complaints about how the costume hangs off me so awkwardly 8|

If anyone does take legal action, I'll back you up with my own story. This was supposed to be a $360 costume and the quality is lower than a chinese factory.

I hope she's gotten in contact with people by now. As I noticed she's pretty active on other sites. (Active as in she posted something a few mere hours ago.) I'd say where but she probably watches this forum right now.

She doesn't reply to my messages, nor do they come back unread/undelivered. She's ignoring them. It's pretty clear that she's done with me now and intends to refund and/or deliver jack squat.

She seems to be far more devoted to lying to people than to making their costumes ^^;

I'm in the same boat as kiratsukai. No response to emails, or PMs, both here and on deviantart. She clearly has no intention of returning any money to anyone.

I've been following this story for quite sometime, and I actually found this post on another person's deviantart where they were calling her out about scamming her two daughters...

It's sad that we as commissioners put so much trust into someone who would scam us. I'm lucky I never commissioned her, even though I did ask for a quote. I hope something can be done about this for you all!

I feel lucky that I got my costume. Even if I have to edit the shit out of it before I can use it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been having issues with Ashli. I got a commission from her in the past and everything went well. Back in February I asked her again to commission a Chihiro cosplay for Otakon 2011. I got it in May (scheduled time) but the seams popped and I sent it back to her to get it fixed.

It went down hill from there. At first I got responses, but something would always come up for her as to why she hadn't mailed it out. Then she stopped responding and I finally got a response last Saturday saying she would finally mail out my cosplay. I never received it and have been emailing her constantly. I had to go to Otakon with only 1 cosplay instead of 2. I am angry and disappointed.

Wow, there are more people than I thought who have been scammed by her. With so many people, and with that I'm assuming numerous E-Mails and PayPal invoices and payments as evidence, we might all stand to get some money back from her if we take legal action. If anyone knows anything about how to go about doing that I for one would love to know.

I'm currently contacting a district attorney about a solo case on kind of the same thing on a different commissioner. If I find anything useful out, I'll let you know.

The first order of business is probably to report her to management here and see that her account is banned, preventing her from doing business in the marketplace here again.
