[NO] Ink Partial by Pyrope Costumes
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under Canidae
Filed under $100 and under.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
It’s comfortable to wear, not too squishy. Ventilation is terrible, I could barely breathe with 10 mins wear, it wasn’t carved enough inside. Had to adjust the strap, since the head fit really loose when first wore it.
Visibility is fine, overall. Can see most of my front, but can’t really see above.
There’s no shaving work done whatsoever. Fur is soft and all, but on the green patches, you can see the white fabric in some areas. I had to chop off many glue excess from the nose, lower jaw and eyes.
The green mohawk is just bunches of fur scraps placed on top of each other; I have to brush it on certain ways so the white patches don’t show below the fabric.
The neck is really long, not made to shape, more like if Ink showed a double chin. I have to wear a bandana for it to look nice. Ink originally has some darker dots on his nose, and they look like she painted them with acrylic. The area where it’s painted looks and feel really stiff.
The “green fur” was supposed to be some minty colored, which she had found, but agreed to change it to green, since the mint one’s shipping would take longer.
The head was supposed to have “stud earrings” on both ears, but one of the ears has a hole on the back area, with visible foam, and the other had nothing at all. This suit arrived with no earrings at all.
The type of material that was used on the “hog fangs” is nothing but what you use on casts. It’s really lumpy and irregular. Sounds like they’re fragile when tapped with the nails.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
Lowest quality paws. I originally had requested “poofy paws” for this suit, but due to the maker’s time schedule, she sent me a pair of “temporary paws” (seen in the picture). These are the lowest quality paws I’ve seen. I don’t really know which one’s the right or left paw, not to mention they come off really easily. There’s no lining work on them, just two pieces sewn together and that’s it.
The hands are the most terrible thing out of them all. Fur goes opposite ways when met on the tip of the fingers, again, no shaving work done. Paw pads are fleece, with acrylic darker dots. They really look horrible, fur doesn’t seem to have any sense of direction, and fit really loose.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
It’s bouncy and small, like requested. One of the straps slightly detached when I first shook my bum with it. The shape’s fine, just like requested.
Again, green fur has visible white patches under the fabric, it’s not symmetric at all, and AGAIN, no shave work done whatsoever. You can easily see where the patterns were attached, and I have to brush it in a certain way for the seams and patches to be unnoticed.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
She was friendly most of the time, and replied soon enough. But what really pissed me off was: the initial deadline wasn’t met. We had to change the colors for the fursuit to be done. There’s no shaving work done, and the stitch work (connecting patterns) is really terrible. The mohawk has a good shape, but it must be brushed in a certain way for the white patch below the fur to be hidden, otherwise, you can see every patch of fur that was attached to make the mohawk. She sent an unfinished work, she charged me extra for those stud earrings, and there were not attached to the furhead not sent in the box. I pinched my head and hand with a pin that she forgot to take out. The original paws were never made nor sent. She used acrylic paint on the “dots” of his nose and pawpads.
I decided to sell the fursuit, for a bigger price since I’m selling the suit, character and the art that comes with him, as I can’t take him with me, I’ll be moving out of my country next year, and he’s just sitting there gathering dust. The maker decided to make a post on facebook, complaining about how I “quadrupled” the price of it, and even whined about the fact I offered a refurb (from a well known local maker) for it. That was highly unprofessional, due to her sending me an unfinished suit, with LOTS of mistakes and missing things, did no shaving work on it, and deadlines weren’t met. When I replied to one of her friend’s comments, she blocked me from the post, and continued to play victim (a friend of mine kept sending screenshots of the post’s comments), saying that I “stole” her work and sold it for a higher price. She got her money, and yet I got an unfinished fursuit. Who’s stealing who?
I paid a low quantity for it, my first suit cost 4,000MXN+, but it was high quality, and the maker did an excellent job. Guess you actually get what you pay for.
She got money, and it’s not her property at all. I didn’t offer a refurb, and the person I sold the partial to agrees with the price, since, again, I’m selling the suit, character AND art I made of him and commissioned of him. She has no right to complain nor whine about a job she never really finished.
