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

Head is very comfortable and large. Ventilation is good, vision is excellent. Lined nicely.
Head is on the big side but it’s good for ventilation so don’t mind.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

I absolutely love this head, they did a fantastic job at capturing him and worked so well from the concept art provided. Head is symmetrical, shaving is the best I’ve ever seen and the fur is high quality. The eyes are lovely and the overall expression is spot on. The teeth are fleece and look great. He also has a fleece tongue. The feathers match the art perfectly.

How was your concept art realized?

The maker worked from concept art I produced. I chose this maker because their style seemed to fit perfectly with the look I wanted and the outcome was fantastic.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Bearing in mind my body suit was by a UK maker but both were aware of each other and in communication. The white and blue sadly didn’t match up with the bodysuit however WDW paid postage costs etc to have the head sent to the UK maker to be sorted. I was very impressed with the level of care and communication over this issue. It’s now resolved and everything is perfect and matches.

Overall Project Quality

I am totally satisfied and love the head

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, message via their twitter

Maker Response Time

Initially very fast, they emailed me the quote and a payment plan was started. Over time though communication dropped and I had to message them via twitter to get a response

Maker Professionalism

Quality is amazing but I feel communication and punctuality of deadlines could have been better

Project Completion Time

I wanted it for ConFuzzled latest and it didn’t arrive in time as customs can take ages. I had to do a lot of nagging to get it posted but no one could have predicted how crazily long customs would be holding it for.

Final Comments

For a head only commission, I’d definitely recommend this maker if you don’t have set deadlines. Communication could have been better but overall, I am very happy with the head. It’s incredible quality and captured my character 100%. Maker is kind and understanding of issues and willing to help, I’d get another head from them for sure because it was totally worth the wait.
