No, though we’re acquaintances :^)

Do you have any prior experience with fursuits?
Minimal; I tried to make a suit, and I tried on a suit briefly for a panel (less than 30 minutes, I’d say).

I didn’t have any issues, so no.

HEAD
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the costume. 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 costume.
Are you satisfied with how it fits you? How is the ventilation? How is the vision?

It’s a little loose on me, but not too much so– just in a comfortable way. I gave the measurements rounded up so that it would be that way! The ventilation is good! She has a slot out of the mouth, which though it’s small, it helps more than having none at all. Air circulates generally well!

The vision is pretty good! I can’t see below her muzzle level across, and I have to turn my head to see. Note, however, that I’m legally blind in my left eye, so that’s a big part of it, so movements to see well would be needed, anyhow. I’m very satisfied with the vision!

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 overall expression and appearance of the head? Does it match the concept art?

She is gorgeous. There is nothing glaringly asymmetrical about the suit. The shaving has beautiful transitions and is really smooth all over. You can’t see the backing from the outside. The fur is incredibly soft, too!!

Her freckles and chin marking are airbrushed, but the fur there is still soft; it’s not crunchy at all, and they haven’t rubbed off. Her expression is so adorable! I’m beyond pleased with how cute and happy she looks, given that she’s an upbeat, silly character. She has follow-me eyes which are beautifully painted.

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.

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?

What are the features and how do they work? How easy are they to wear? How is the quality?

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

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your costume.
How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like?

I will say that the handpaws are ridiculously comfortable. I wear them all the time. They are four-fingered and are well-fitted. They go most of the way down my forearm, so as long as I’m wearing at least a 3/4 sleeve shirt, my skin won’t show at all!

I can move, flex my fingers, wave, etc. all comfortably. There are resin claws, but they haven’t fallen out. Series gave me some extra claws if they ever do and I lose them, however.

The interiors are not lined, but I don’t feel that they need to be. The fabric backing isn’t scratchy or uncomfortable at all. There are cuffs on them, as well (pink, like her nose/inner ears).

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume 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?

The paws are too cute. They’re symmetrical and match the reference. The shaving is mostly even, and the transition to the paws (shaved) to the the arm (long) is smooth. There were a few spots near the fingertip/seam that were uneven, but I fixed that myself with ease. The fur is still very soft, and her paw pads are made of minky, so they are very soft! I love how they look, feel, and move.

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

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

The tail is very comfortable to wear! It bounces and is very soft, and it’s pretty easy to put on. It attaches with a belt. The straps are nice and secure, even. It’s very bouncy and cute!

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume 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?

It’s symmetrical and beautiful! There was no shaving needed, and the fur is incredibly soft. I love the fur Series chose because her tail has a gradient to it from base to tip. Even though that’s not really possible with a fursuit, the fur she chose is dark at the base and is lighter at the tip which gives it a really cool effect when it moves/bounces!

WINGS
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the wings of the costume.

How satisfied are you with how the wings fit? How is the quality and durability?

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 suit is perfect! It perfectly matches her reference. Even though she usually has gauges, the maker said she didn’t think it fit the aesthetic of the suit, which I wholeheartedly agree with. The markings themselves are spot on!

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?
Everything is perfect!

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?
It was pretty easy! I asked one day if she did trades, and I got a quote within a week or two as we worked out the details!

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Extremely so! She always got back to me within one or two days!

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
Series was very friendly and easy to work with. I had some trouble getting they money to her, and she was very patient with me. She sent me WIPs of things as they were finished and always answered my questions!

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
Like I said, I asked for a late January deadline, and received it not long after. And I’m not upset that it was missed; I’m glad that I went to the con without a suit!

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
It’s amazing quality! 10/10

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
She was pleasant to work with, got back to me in a timely manner, and was never hard to contact. It was great working with Series!

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Honestly, I don’t have anything bad to say about Series. She’s professional yet friendly, easy to contact, keeps you updated on your suit, and does quality work! Her prices are definitely fair for her level of work; I’d definitely recommend commissioning her.
