HANDS AND FEET
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the hands and feet of the fursuit.


 

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like?
How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? These paws are comfy! They’re HUGE but I love massive paws, and I’m sure they’d look more in proportion to a fullsuit or larger partial (they’re larger than my fursuits face, hahaha, but my head is really small compared to most other heads, including heads from this maker).

How is the quality and durability? P good! They seem super sturdy and are really professional looking. Vinyl paw-pads and claws are securely attached. My only issue (which I just discovered yesterday) is a small popped seam between two of the fingers, but I can fix that pretty easily.

What is the interior like? They aren’t lined which means I’m still pulling out a ton of loose fur/lint after each wear, but they’re still comfy. There are some mysterious symbols written on the inside of the fur (which I’m assuming are to help patterning) but they don’t bother me.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your fursuit pieces look from the outside.
How is the symmetry? Is the shaving even? How does the fur feel and look? How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used?
How is the symmetry? p good.

Is the shaving These weren’t shaven, instead the maker just used two different lengths of fur which I love (i think, unless they did shave them, and if so, wow good job).

How does the fur feel and look? It’s the SOFTEST FUR EVER. Super white and super nice.

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used? Pretty satisfied! The paw-pads and claws are vinyl which feels and looks really nice. They’re a little darker blue than my ref but that’s fine. I’ve tried finding the correct color vinyl myself and haven’t had any success yet, haha. They get pretty brittle if they get really cold, but that’s my fault for trying to fursuit in sub-zero weather because the rest of my fursuit wasn’t too happy about being super cold either, lol.

OVERALL VISUAL SATISFACTION
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with the overall visual aspects associated with the fursuit.


 

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
If there was no concept art, please state N/A
Satisfied! They’re a whiter-white than the rest of my suit which is noticeable if I put my paw next to my head (which makes my head look crazy dirty, haha) but I didn’t specify which white I’d wanted so that’s my bad. Like I said before the blue is a little dark, but it’s not a huge deal.


MAKER INTERACTION AND COMMISSION PROCESS
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with all the aspects of communication between you and the maker.


 

How satisfied are you with how easy it was to initially contact the maker for a quote?
Super easy! I noted them and they responded within a few minutes.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Usually within the day.

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
They were super friendly and professional.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
I was a little worried towards the end that they wouldn’t make my deadline (MFF, 12/4) because they weren’t finished until a few days earlier. They would have made it on time however the maker’s post office decided to forget the package in their office, ha. It was overnighted to the hotel and it was all good in the end :)

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Satisfied!

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Really satisfied, especially for someone who had such a huge queue at the time, haha.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
I did have two small issues with the paws. Looking closely between the fingers, the black thread they used is pretty noticeable especially with the white fur. When washing the paws there was some pink dye from the fabric marker that seeped out from under the paw-pads, but it came out easily with water and the maker said they’ve since stopped using that pen, so no biggie.

This maker is super cool and their work is really nice. My only con would be that they might but it a little too close with the deadlines, but because I had them for the con in the end, it was all good! :)

I’d totally recommend working with them if you’re looking for someone who’s friendly and professional.
