FURSUIT HEAD
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the fursuit. If you are reviewing only a set of ears, your answers would also go in this section.


 

 

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your fursuit.
Are you satisfied with how it fits you? How is the ventilation? How is the vision?

The head fits great! Lined with lycra so its very comfortable.
Ventilation is also great, the muzzle is hollow so its not stuffy at all, perfect!
Vision is also superb, apart from a small blind spot in the middle as the eyes are a little far apart, but nothing big, vision is still very good.
The head is a little heavy then other heads I have tried, it can be hard to move around quickly.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your fursuit piece looks from the outside.
How is the symmetry? Is the shaving even? How does the fur feel and look? How satisfied are you with the overall expression and appearance of the head? Does it match the concept art?

Head is mostly symmetrical, all the markings are where they should be.
The shaving is a little choppy in some areas, and a very little backing visible, but nothing one would notice if you didn’t inspect the suit like I did. The transition from short to long fur (the neck and cheeks) is amazing, its almost as the fur was made like that.
The eyes are follow me eyes, and they do their job great!

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your head has.
What are they and how do they work? How easy are they to wear? How is the quality?

She added little dragon horns (which were on my character design) and four snaggle teeth, two at the top and two at the bottom.
The two bottom ones have both fallen off, but were easily fixed with some hot glue.


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?

The hands and feet both fit great! The handpaws are not lined, the paw-pads are made of yellow vinyl which is very nice, there are no broken seams or whatnot, perfect fit!
The fur on the paws is different to the rest of the partial, but I was informed of this before they were made.
The shoes are just amazing, I did not provide the maker with any shoes (as shipping them from EU to the US would cost a bit) so I told the maker my size and they bought the shoes. To my surprise they fitted perfectly, I did think they were going to fit due to me not being able to try them on first, but thankfully they fitted!
The feet are shaved at the toes and look amazing, I love the shape so much, they are very comfortable.

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?

Perfect! Exactly what I wanted, no problems.


TAILS
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the tail(s) of the fursuit.


 

 

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the tail(s) fit? How is the quality and durability?

Here was one of the only issues I had with the suit, after about an hour of wearing the suit, the seams on the belt loops came loose, they were hand sewn on, and because the tail is rather heavy, they broke. It was an easy repair though.
I’m not quite sure why the tail is so heavy, as it is the same size as multiple other tails I own, but is somehow twice as heavy.

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?

All markings were as shown on the ref, no choppy shaving, no problems there.
Apart from one thing that I have only recently noticed, the belt loops are sewn on a little lower than the top of the tail, so when I put it on, the top of the tail sticks out a bit. Like this: sta.sh/01k3vbq89urn


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
Great! All markings were perfect!

How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up?
Do you markings match up at the seams? Are the colors consistent?
Great! What I expected, all perfect, no major issues.


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?
Very easy! At the time I was a little younger (and didn’t exactly have the social skills that I have now, I looked back on our messages and I didn’t exactly “talk”right but the maker still remained kind and friendly towards me, which I am very grateful for.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Maximum waiting time was about a day, no major issues.

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
Very pleasant! They remained professional and very friendly at the same time!

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
There was so real deadline, I did ask if it could be completed for a few different dates that were not met, but as said above, there was no solid deadline so it didn’t count.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very satisfied! Especially since the price was so low.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Very satisfied :)

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Most info said above, they were extremely friendly and kind, whenever I asked a question about when the suit would be completed or how things looked, she would always provide me with an answer and sometimes a WIP picture.
Highly recommend this maker to others!
