Are you satisfied with how it fits you? How is the ventilation? How is the vision?

it fits me really well, save for me having to do some minor re-adjusting if ive been turning around a lot
i was really surprised with how nice the vision and ventilation were! i can see really clearly through the eyes and the mouth.
ventilation is really good too, its very easy to breathe because the mouth is open and cold air goes in through there

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?

i had an image in my head of what this would possible look like based on other suits, and it fit that pretty well !
the shaving is nice and transitions well, the fur is super soft and easy to brush
i really like how it looks overall ! it has followme eyes that work really well, too !

the only thing off with appearance is the colouring, but thats my fault because i couldnt find exact colours of fur so i chose the closest, but i still like it

the air flows through it well and i can easily cool off my standing in front of a fan

the feet use a slipon shoe that i actually tried on sent over, i cant really remember what exactly they were

the paw pads are shaved down fur, and theyre sewn to the paws.

alot !! it’s very soft and cute and easy to wear !

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
this was my first time commissioning anything this big, and me, being Super Cautious and Worried, was really worried about being scammed/bad communication/the bad stuff, but i got none of that and overall it was pleasant !

pros:
-super good visibility and ventilation
-fits what i had imagined
-very fluffy
-easy to move in and wear

cons:
-there were some hot glue chunks left in the fur but i brushed most of those out

this is my first actual fursuit, and im extremely happy with it!!!
i’d like to note that the low price is because at the time syke was charging only for materials so she could get experience
