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 fits just fine for the most part. It can be difficult to put it on with my glasses, but that isn’t the makers fault. It’s comfortable enough.

The ventilation isn’t great. It gets very hot and stuffy and at times I have to remove my glasses altogether because of how fogged up they get.

The vision is decent. The trunk causes a bit of an extra blind spot (which can be expected). I have to turn my head to see most of my surroundings.

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?

The tusks are a little uneven. The left sits slightly lower than the right. The rest of the suit is symmetrical. You can see some of the foam around the mouth area but you have to be close to see it. The shaving is even and satisfactory. The fur is easy to brush/smooth out, and even style. The expression is very cute and fun.

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?

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?

The hands are very comfortable to wear and fit great. My only issue is how short they are (wrist length)so I have to be careful with how far a stretch my arm out so my shirt doesn’t come up too much and expose skin. They stay on my hands and are very easy to put on and take off. The seams are durable.

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?

Everything is satisfactory about the appearance of the hands.

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 strap of the tail is hard to get onto most belts. Nothing has popped or broken off, though, so that’s a big plus. All of the seams are very durable.

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?

One thing I don’t like about the tail is that it isn’t stuffed, so it looks really flat and boring. It also moves funny when I walk because of how heavy the bottom is compared to the rest of it.

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

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

N/A

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’m very satisfied with the suits appearance. The tusks aren’t 100% symmetrical but it doesn’t bother me much. It gives the suit some personality. The colors are consistent and the shaving is excellent.

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?
I’m pretty satisfied.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
She was fairly quick to respond.

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
Sarahcat was pleasant to work with for the most part. There was a misunderstanding at first but it was resolved quickly.

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 were no deadlines.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
I had hoped for better ventilation and vision, but it’s not terrible for the price I paid. The design was unique and executed nicely. People have commented on the ears looking more like a mouse than a mammoth, but I think they’re cute. This suit will likely be refurbished in the future to fix the air flow.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
The customer service was fine. Sarahcat answered my questions in a timely manner and she did tell me that the trunk would get in the way of my vision some.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
All in all the experience with Sarahcat was good. I enjoy this suit, and others do as well.
