Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? These paws are comfy! They’re HUGE but I love massive paws, and I’m sure they’d look more in proportion to a fullsuit or larger partial (they’re larger than my fursuits face, hahaha, but my head is really small compared to most other heads, including heads from this maker).
How is the quality and durability? P good! They seem super sturdy and are really professional looking. Vinyl paw-pads and claws are securely attached. My only issue (which I just discovered yesterday) is a small popped seam between two of the fingers, but I can fix that pretty easily.
What is the interior like? They aren’t lined which means I’m still pulling out a ton of loose fur/lint after each wear, but they’re still comfy. There are some mysterious symbols written on the inside of the fur (which I’m assuming are to help patterning) but they don’t bother me.
How is the symmetry? p good.
Is the shaving These weren’t shaven, instead the maker just used two different lengths of fur which I love (i think, unless they did shave them, and if so, wow good job).
How does the fur feel and look? It’s the SOFTEST FUR EVER. Super white and super nice.
How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used? Pretty satisfied! The paw-pads and claws are vinyl which feels and looks really nice. They’re a little darker blue than my ref but that’s fine. I’ve tried finding the correct color vinyl myself and haven’t had any success yet, haha. They get pretty brittle if they get really cold, but that’s my fault for trying to fursuit in sub-zero weather because the rest of my fursuit wasn’t too happy about being super cold either, lol.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Satisfied! They’re a whiter-white than the rest of my suit which is noticeable if I put my paw next to my head (which makes my head look crazy dirty, haha) but I didn’t specify which white I’d wanted so that’s my bad. Like I said before the blue is a little dark, but it’s not a huge deal.
Super easy! I noted them and they responded within a few minutes.
Usually within the day.
How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Really satisfied, especially for someone who had such a huge queue at the time, haha.
I did have two small issues with the paws. Looking closely between the fingers, the black thread they used is pretty noticeable especially with the white fur. When washing the paws there was some pink dye from the fabric marker that seeped out from under the paw-pads, but it came out easily with water and the maker said they’ve since stopped using that pen, so no biggie.
This maker is super cool and their work is really nice. My only con would be that they might but it a little too close with the deadlines, but because I had them for the con in the end, it was all good! 🙂
I’d totally recommend working with them if you’re looking for someone who’s friendly and professional.
