Relationship With Maker

The maker was NOT a friend when the item was purchased, but they ARE a friend now

Prior Experience

No, this was my very first suit.

Informed Maker of Issues

The shoes inside the feet where to narrow. Not there fault, I have very messed up feet and I didn’t think to send them shoes that would work best for me from the start. When I told them about the problem I asked if it would be okay for me to send them shoes that they could use to make me new feet. They agreed without any fuss or further complication. The new feet are perfect and are also much lighter, about which I have no complaints.

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

This being my very first suit, it took me a fair amount of time to get used to it all.
I also wear glasses, and they made the head accommodate them. At first I had a big problem figuring out how to put the head on over said glasses, but furthewin has excellent customer support and assisted me in figuring it out. 🙂
It fits very nicely, air dose circulate well, and I can breath fine in it. The only thing that happens is after about 20 minutes my glasses fog up but I think that’s a given. Besides that I have no complaints. Everything has a proper fit and finish while also moving as intended (the jaw.)

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

They did a perfect job on it, down to every last detail. The coloring of it was spot on with my requests, the expression also was exactly as I requested. I really like how soft the fur feels even in the shaved down parts. All inn all the suit is how I pictured it down to a T and I’m 100% happy with it.

Other then the following eyes, I asked for a moveable jaw.
It was their first time doing a moveable jaw on a suit, and it turned out good. When my mouth moves the jaw moves too, and that action is also smooth and predictable.

BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, the answers would also go in this section.


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

I have no complaints across the board. The fit of my suit was based off of the requested self-made ducktape dummy that I provided, and the end result matched just that. It’s proven to be reasonably durable though I’d prefer not to test that aspect too much given my investment. I did have a claw/nail come off, but had it reattached locally and did not contact furthewin about the issue as they’re pretty far away and I wanted it repaired quickly.
The inner lining is fair, I have no complaints about it, but with that in mind I do wear compression clothing underneath. The suit can get warm, but with the amount of fur on it there really is no surprises.

The way they did that patterns was perfect, the shaved down parts look awesome and the fur is so soft.
They made it look exactly as I hoped they could.
I just love it!

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.


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

The hands fit well and are quite comfortable. The design I requested does limit their range of motion to an extent, but I’ve adapted.
The only thing I had a problem with the feet was the situation I mentioned before.
As mentioned before, the issue with the feet was resolved and they’re now quite comfortable to wear.

I love how the claws look on the hands, how soft the fur is, and how there transition of colors blends nicely.
Same thing goes for the feet.

None pertaining to the hands or feet.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.


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

It was just getting used to having it on that was hard for me at first.
Other then that the way it sits is good. When it is hanging down it feels nice, without much tug, but while walking I do hold it as I’m still not comfortable letting it drag on the floor behind me. It gets a little heave to carry after a few moments but I’m fine with it due to the fact that I’m too nervous to risk it getting ruined.

Its as long as i wanted it, and the hair on the long parts of the tail are perfect. The parts that are shaved down were done so patiently and with expert attention to detail.
It looks great!

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?

All the seams flow into one another to the point that it looks as though everything is one piece. I can’t tell where seams start and end.
Other than the feet at first everything else fits perfect, and now that the feet are fixed they do too.
The styling I requested was a bit unconventional, but they made it flow quite well.

Overall Project Quality

They where able to bring my fursona to life for me, something that I thought would never happen. They did everything I asked for and updated me with every little detail and on every bit of progress as it was made. The way it fits it feels nice an comfy. The fur colors they got were perfect, and the way that the colors blended into one another is perfect. I feel that this suit will last a very long time, although I intend to baby it for as long as I have it. I’ve got confidence in the finished product and feel that the cost to quality ratio was met, if not surpassed on their part.
