Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The head fits very perfectly, a little bit tight, but its not uncomfortable.

I have a small fan inside, so the ventilation is very good. Without a fan I starts with sweating very fast, because the head sits tight on me and the air circulate is not the best without a active fan.

Vision is one of the bests, I can see a lot.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
I give him a 6 from a scale of 10, because I am not happy with the long ears, expression and some small issues of the markings. I paid for taxidermy teeth, but I got standart teeht.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

All fits good together.

Overall Project Quality

I am a little bit disappointed that the markings does not fit the concept art correctly. The ears are to long, they looks more like a fennic fox and not like a wolf and I have paid for taxidermy teeth, but I received just standart handmade teeth. I own another Fursuit from this fursuit maker and the other, older one is in much better quality as this suit. Markings and ears are much better, and he putted more time for creating this suit. And to this time I got the taxidermy teeth.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

It was ok to contact the maker about a quote.

Maker Response Time

It was easy to contact the maker over Furaffinity or over Twitter. You always get a fast response.

Maker Professionalism

Customer service was good, he asked me alot about markings, expression and which fur I wanted. He showed me a lot of photos of the fur and we had an good contact to this time and he showed me WIPS and a video as he created the fursuit for me. He is not perfect, because his mood can be changes very fast… and I have nothing to do with his private problems, I pay for a fursuit with quality and private problems are no excuse to make a fursuit with low quality.

Project Completion Time

I had to deal with some missunderstanding. We had an agreement at the end of November, that I will get the suit one year later and it will be handed to me personally. But the maker has forgot it and as I asked some weeks before the deadline ends, when he started, I did not get the friendliest answers from him. He had totally forget the agreement but at least I got the suit in time. But sadly this suit was made with a lot of stress.

Final Comments

Everything is good when you are happy with his work. But sadly, if you have any issues, or something is missing, or uncleared and you ask about it, the sympathy from this maker disappears and his mood changes very fast… It looks like he can not work with critique and he should learn to work on it.
