I first contacted HighPriestessIce on April 26th to purchase a pair of ultra short PVC zipper shorts she sells in her clothing thread. I had originally gone for black as they were stock but changed my mind after a discussion through pms about places where I could purchase thigh high boots. It was pleasant speaking with her but I found that her inbox gets full fast so I added her to my MSN. Through MSN I told her I rather have the pants in red which meant she would have to sew a new pair. I didn't mind that at all since it was what I requested. I was told it would be about a week and I could understand that as well since I myself sew and it takes time to make things. Working with PVC is difficult. On the 30th I decided I would see if she could also make me a vest to go with the shorts in the same material and color. I was told that yes it was possible and it would add another week to my wait time. That was fine since it was my own fault for not mentioning it in my first order of PVC shorts and two rings from her prop thread. I paid her $15 for the vest on top of the money I had already sent earlier for the shorts. Some time had passed since then and I saw a thread on May 9th that she had been injured tripping in the mall and her dolls suffered some damage. Concerned I sent her a message. At this point I was not worried about my items as I believed that likely by this time at least the shorts were done. I was just spoke to her conversationally. It was on May 15th that I was told she would have items ready to ship and would hopefully send them out before she went off to an anime convention. I thought this was strange as if she had somewhere to go shouldn't she finish her transactions first? I decided to just be patient as I was already told by previous customers shipping tends to be a test in one's own patience when it comes to her. On the 22nd I saw she had put up she left for her convention. I was rather upset by this as no one had received any shipping notice at all. I sent her a message telling her I though this was very irresponsible and asked that my money be returned. I had waited now since the 26th and had yet to even hear if my commissioned items were complete when each time I was promised one more week, one more week... it made me wonder how many weeks are in her month as we were already nearing the month point from my initial order. Since she was at the convention I did not expect to receive a reply to my message till she returned. When she returned she replied to my pm (the 24th). She was a bit upset about what I had said and explained she had let things slip to the last minute and had items that needed to be complete for sale at the convention. She also stated my items were complete. My money was returned to me not long after this message. But after searching for other means of trying to get this outfit and in light of her saying it was complete I decided to try my patience once more. So the next day I sent her a pm asking that if the outfit is indeed complete to show me pictures to prove it and if she can do that I will send her back the money and sit down for the long wait I was expecting for the items to be shipped to me. I know that is common with her but people do eventually receive their items even if they have to wait a long time. I really really wanted this outfit for my CP Dreaming El (Julius) as I expressed to her many times through our communication. It was to be his primary outfit. She tells me that her camera broke at the convention and can I wait for her to get a new one. I say I can and am promised pictures the next morning. No pictures come and I am now promised pictures by midnight. Again no pictures come. Instead I am told she can't seem to get the camera to work or that its just not syncing up with her computer. On the 27th the excuse is that her computer is having problems and she will send me pictures from a friend's computer. I receive nothing. I tell her the next day I am willing to wait a bit longer. She replies that on the 31st she can get them to me shortly. That is the last time I hear from her. I never receive any pictures at all. Not even a reason as to why shortly turned to 4 days of no communication. I understand people are busy but these were deadlines she set herself. I never gave her any deadline for when I wanted the clothing completed though I was hoping that it would be in time for my visiting relatives to see them. That time passed and was actually within the scope of her second one week promise. So today I have decided she has no intention of taking pictures and I will only continue to hear excuses if I continue to wait. I think I have been patient enough and I just wanted people to be informed that if they are doing business with her prepare to have deadlines she sets broken and don't expect to have items at any certain time. Also be prepared for a long list of excuses. In the end I got my money back but that never was what I really wanted. I wanted my boy to be complete and have the clothes he needs and she stated many times she could deliver that but couldn't even so much as give me pictures of what I paid for. Thank you for altogether being one giant disappointment.
