Airflow: Fursuit is not unnecessarily hot.

Fur feel/look: The fur feels soft, not crunchy, no markings, and is easy to brush
Color/Material: Satisfied with material choice, but primary color shade didn’t match the one of my existing head

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


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

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Matching at seams: Everything fits well and correctly.
Fit correctly: One leg feels a little looser than the other, but it is probably an issue with my duct tape dummy. Should not cause maintenance issue.
Consistency: Suit is consistent with past projects of maker.

Other note: Area behind tail does have a slightly rough transition to rest of body, but it is not much of an issue.

Overall Project Quality

I am relatively satisfied with my order (I ordered a bodysuit/refurbishment for old fursuit/gloves/tail). The project was above my expectations, but not by very much.

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

Initial Contact

Very easy, found them through reddit forum when looking for specific fursuit features.

Maker Response Time

There was no delay. My response came within a day and maker was constantly online for contact. They reached out to me on Reddit, we briefly discussed prices on Furaffinity, then communicated on Facebook Messenger (I switched to a different account about halfway through). (All changes of channels of communication were mutual agreements)

Maker Professionalism

I feel like I was treated well by the maker. They were pleasant to work with and were definitely more friendly than business-like. There were a few ambiguities in contact, but all were resolved. The only policies we explicitly communicated were just reaffirming their Furaffinity policies. They did not give me any excuses, and they did not talk about their personal life.

Project Completion Time

I was aware of a queue and my place in it, yet the maker did not make clear that they work on projects in batches. The construction time was about a month, which was a little longer than what I hoped, but the fursuit was constructed in a reasonable time.
There were no specific deadlines. The maker did have a bit of further end date than what I was comfortable with, but since there were no deadlines, I am fine with them. The items were shipped in a timely manner.
