    Time passed by. In May 2021, I noticed they had closed their etsy shop. I emailed them, concerned and for an update. I did not get a reply.

    I emailed them again in the beginning of June 2021. I got no response.

    About a week later in June, they posted on their instagram that they were closing their business and liquidating the shop. They were going to give refunds and send out uncompleted orders. He instructed his clients to email him in an instagram post. (I do not have the post screenshot, but I did manage to save one where he mentioned he saw my email in the comment section.)

    I emailed him, as instructed. I heard back from him a week or so later. He offered to set up a repayment plan with me. He said he could refund me in installments, if I was interested. I emailed back and accepted his offer, but there was no further contact.

    In November 2021, I attempted to email him. His email address cannot be found.

    His instagram currently named, BW2021closed, is not active and posts deleted. Beastworksfx website has also been deleted.

    They have cut off all means of contact.

    I just found this post today. I've never even known a website like this exists for bewares. I've spent the last 6 to 7 hours trying to find ways to contact him. This is still happening. His last facebook post that's public was from January 26th, 2022. I tried to email him today because he took almost 600 dollars from me. Any way to contact him has been completely cut off or removed. Email, tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, deviantart, etsy. Even Etsy themselves haven't been able to do anything about it. I haven't been able to find any other way yet but I doubt those will work as well. I have contacted multiple companies they seem to have been involved with and also have gotten no answer as well. This is hugely disappointing because this was my first suit ever and his work seemed amazing, but from digging around he purposefully accepted a large queue not expecting the pandemic to happen. (I dont think anybody did, but still.) It looks like he tried to sludge through the queue but couldn't, and instead of owning up to his mistake he abandoned the work. I don't think there's anything I can do. I'm truly devastated, out 600 bucks and am completely put off from the community.

    In the same boat - this fella took almost $800 in payments from me, and I didn't see ANY progress. Eventually saw the "closing shop, contact me for a refund" posts and did as instructed - I said I'd be fine with a repayment plan. And then... he disappeared.

    Went to my first furry since Covid earlier this year, and knowing I don't have a partial to look forward to, or the backup funds to commission someone else, really sapped my joy. I don't have a loving relationship with my body, and was deeply looking forward to having a "skin" I was happy in. I'm so sorry for everyone else who got fucked over like this 😞
