I sent my Buddydoll Raphael head to ChiyoMiwa early this month for a faceup. I have commissioned ChiyoMiwa before and was extremely pleased with the fast service and beautiful work, so despite knowing there have been several Paging threads about her in the last few months I felt confident in sending her my head. Unfortunately ChiyoMiwa has been pretty uncommunicative this time around and so I feel it is necessary to start this Paging thread. Here is the timeline of events: 11-2: Head sent out. 11-5: ChiyoMiwa confirms receipt of the head after I ask if it's arrived. 11-7: Completed faceup pictures sent; I approve. 11-8: Payment sent. 11-14: I receive no confirmation of payment being received or a shipment, so I ask for a status update. 11-15: ChiyoMiwa says she's waiting for a new lens to come in the mail to take better pictures and the head will be shipped out by the end of the week. 11-21: "End of the week" has come and gone. I ask for a status update. No reply. 11-23: After two days of silence I send another PM that says I expect notification of shipment within 24 hours otherwise I will open up a paging thread. ChiyoMiwa, please send my head back to me ASAP. If you really need better pictures of your faceup work that badly I am more than happy to take some for you when I have him back. Please understand that I am very happy with the work you did, but you have a very valuable item of mine plus over $40 and your silence makes me worry a lot. I am fine with waiting as long as the communication is good but as it has not been in this instance I want the head shipped ASAP.
