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.

10/10
The head is extremely comfortable, easy to breathe in, and easy to see out of. It fits comfortably with contacts, though it was made for glasses compatibility (My particular frames push against the eyes of the suit, so I choose to wear contacts to keep from damaging them).

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume piece looks from the outside.

10/10 extremely satisfied. Beautiful, professional shaving, airbrushing, and overall quality. Everything is symmetrical. The expression is exactly how I described – girly and bubbly! Wonderful work.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your head has.

Horns – 10/10 No issues. Sturdy but squishy vinyl, professional sewing.

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.

Puffy Paws – 10/10 perfect fit, comfortable, and surprisingly dexterous! Superior quality here!

Feet – 8/10 Comfortable, easy to wear. A little big on me, but I have issues finding correct sizes of shoes from brand to brand.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume pieces look from the outside.

PUFFY PAWS – 10/10 one of my favorite parts of my costume. So, so cute! I can’t get over how good these look overall with shaving, stitching and poofiness!

Feet – 9/10 Great shaving, quality, and look. The vinyl nails tend to wear at the tips from walking, but that is bound to happen with wearing.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your hands or feet have.

PUFFY PAWS – seriously can’t say enough great things about these. Highly recommend!!

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.

10/10 Great tail! Easy to wear, no issues.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume pieces look from the outside.

10/10 – this tail is BIG, just like I asked for. It doesn’t drag on the floor, but it’s super noticeable and wiggly. Awesome, professional work.

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.

9/10 Great work, super cute. The wings themselves are perfect! The straps are a little big on me, but I’d much rather this than too tight. They fit perfectly under clothes with cut holes for them.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume pieces look from the outside.

10/10 Great appearance-wise. Excellent quality. 100% floofiness.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
This is where I really want to brag – Jing (Fursuit Parade) was extremely professional, easy to talk to, and timely. She blew me away with updates, WIPs, and kindness. She made the process fun, and I felt like I could discuss my costume with her through the entire completion.

E-mails were always responded to, all questions answered, and I felt like she really cared about making sure my fursuit matched my description/art, and that I was satisfied. I highly recommend for any kind of commission. She has an impressive gallery of current work as well.
