Give your best estimate.
10,957 hours, according to Google x3 One year and 3 months!
The head fits perfectly, she is not too loose nor too tight, she’s snug on my 21″ head!
Ventilation is great as there is a large space in the mouth, and the whole mouth is lined so no air flow gets caught in exposed foam.
Vision is ok, there is a large blind spot in the middle so I generally tend to look out of one eye at a time, but this tends to be the case for a lot of fursuits so I was not bothered by this :} The eyes are wide enough and the vision out of each individual eye is very good.
Symmetry is spot on, can’t fault it ♡
Shaving is very even and smooth, no choppy spots or anything like that!
A year on, the fur is still very soft and visually appealing to the eye, due to both good making and good maintenance. This was even commented on by someone at my last furmeet! She is heavily airbrushed for effect and that did nothing to the soft texture of the fur, perfect :} The airbrushing only had a slight smudging when it rained once, but it didn’t do anything for the visual and she’s still looked fine since!
The expression was exactly what I specifically requested at the start – something happy but not like OwO happy (didn’t know how else to describe it, haha!) more just like a calm happy, and she pulled that off perfectly with the shape of the eyes and the not-too-deep follow me effect, which I love. Her expression is best from face on, but she still looks great from other angles! Has this derpy cute corgi expression when taken from slightly beneath as well, which I don’t think was intentional but looks adorable regardless!
I only have handpaws by Kloof, and they are lovely to wear.
They made nice long wrists to my request, and they fit weirdly snugly considering I didn’t give measurements and I have quite small hands! All five digits fit nicely, slightly larger than my hands so they are comfortably loose but don’t fall off.
The quality is fantastic, I can’t rate this higher! the shaving is wonderful, the seams are nowhere to be seen, they are very sturdy and all the silicone pawpads are affixed very firmly with fleece backings so I feel very confident with them staying together for a very long time.
The inside isn’t lined but I don’t actually know many that do this, and for me personally it doesn’t affect the comfort levels, I’m quite happy with this.
Symmetry is great, if anyone comments on the different coloured pawpads, that is part of my character and doesn’t count x3 They are very even♡
As described above, the shaving on the fingers is splendid and is not choppy or anything :}
The colours she did for the pawpads are so lovely and natural looking! The silicone was something new she wanted to try out (which was coincidental as I told her silicone was what I was after) and I know she had a lot of issues doing the pads at the start, and was quite an irritating process for her. I was so happy with her perseverance through her multiple tries and updates as she did so, because the results were splendid and so worth it, so thank you for that Kloof♡

Very much so! We could chat in both a professional and friendly manner, to the point that I think it was this fursuit commission that made us friends. Very pleasant to work with, not blunt or robot-ey.
