BODYSUIT
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the body of the costume.
If you are reviewing armsleeves or legs/pants that are seperate from a bodysuit, your answers would also go in this section.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your costume.
How satisfied are you with how the body fits? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like? How is the airflow?

The Kigu is extremely comfortable when worn with a t-shit and pajamas and the temperatures stay relatively low making it enjoyable for many hours of use. One of the nice design choices was putting the tail down a little lower on the back so sitting down isn’t awkward.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume 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 selection of colors and materials used?

It is apparent that a lot of time went into not only the production of the suit but also the design as all parts of the suit come together seamlessly. The fabric is of excellent quality as well as all of the stichting which is professional grade.

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

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
If there was no concept art, please state N/A
The entire kigu matches very well to my reference sheet. The colors are also very accurate.

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?
The suit feels very well built and fits perfectly.

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?

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Working with Curlworks was very easy and stress free, they were quick to respond and had work in progress photos available within hours. I would definitely recommend them if you’re looking for props, kigus and fursuits. Soupy and Satline have a professional demeanor about them that you won’t find in other fursuit makers making them the only one’s that I will commission.
