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?

Yes. It fits me perfectly. It even fits with my glasses, which I did not request, but coincidentally it fits perfectly with my glasses and is comfortable to wear.
The ventilation is fantastic. One of the best parts about this suit. It’s incredibly easy to breathe and it takes quite a while to get overheated to the point where I need to remove the head.
The vision is okay. It is a little dark inside of the fursuit, but with my old fursuit I had much bigger eyes so it was easier to see. Although my vision is a bit more restricted on this fursuit, I can still see easily, but wish it was a bit easier.

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?

The symmetry is perfect. Nothing to complain about, and there is a marking on the back of the head which was completely airbrushed which she did a fantastic job on. No complaints.
The shaving is even all throughout the head, not choppy at all and just the right shave.
The fur feels very soft and just as it should. It looks great. The airbrushing work on the back does not feel crunch, does not rub off or bleed, and brushing is easy to do.
The expression is great. They are follow me eyes and I’m very happy with the expression.
Yes, my suit matches the concept art very well.

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?

The only extra feature I have on my head is the dragon scales on the snout. They are smooth, shiny, and I have not had any problems with them falling off.
They do not add much extra weight to the head.
They are high quality and have held their shine and color.

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
I’m incredibly happy with my fursuit head and it fits the concept art perfectly.

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?
I am extremely happy with the markings and colors.

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 satisfied. She replied within the hour and was quick to get me a quote.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Very satisfied. She typically responds to my messages within a few minutes to an hour or two. The most I have ever waited for contact was a day.

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
Very satisfied. She was incredibly great to work with and was always very kind.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
Very satisfied. I did not have any deadlines set in place but 2 months is pretty quick for a fursuit.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very satisfied. She is very talented.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Extremely satisfied. That is the main reason I’m writing a review for her, because not only are her heads incredible, her customer service has exceeded any expectations I could ever have for a fursuit maker.
