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.

The head fits very perfectly, a little bit tight, but its not uncomfortable.

I have a small fan inside, so the ventilation is very good. Without a fan I starts with sweating very fast, because the head sits tight on me and the air circulate is not the best without a active fan.

Vision is one of the bests, I can see a lot.

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

How is the symmetry? – I can not see something wrong about the symmetry. All looks correct for me.

Is the shaving even? – Shaving looks good, I can not see any issues.

How does the fur feel and look? – The black and white fur has a high quality. Its exactly this fur I wanted and paid for it.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head? –

Quality of the head is in a good condition but I am not to 100% happy about the expression. Because of the black eyelid in the white marking,the expression looks a little bit tired for me.

Does it match the concept art? –

Sadly, there are some small issues. Don´t match perfectly the concept art I gave him.

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
I give him a 6 from a scale of 10, because I am not happy with the long ears, expression and some small issues of the markings. I paid for taxidermy teeth, but I got standart teeht.

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?
All fits good together.

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 ok to contact the maker about a quote.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
It was easy to contact the maker over Furaffinity or over Twitter. You always get a fast response.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
I had to deal with some missunderstanding. We had an agreement at the end of November, that I will get the suit one year later and it will be handed to me personally. But the maker has forgot it and as I asked some weeks before the deadline ends, when he started, I did not get the friendliest answers from him. He had totally forget the agreement but at least I got the suit in time. But sadly this suit was made with a lot of stress.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
I am a little bit disappointed that the markings does not fit the concept art correctly. The ears are to long, they looks more like a fennic fox and not like a wolf and I have paid for taxidermy teeth, but I received just standart handmade teeth. I own another Fursuit from this fursuit maker and the other, older one is in much better quality as this suit. Markings and ears are much better, and he putted more time for creating this suit. And to this time I got the taxidermy teeth.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Customer service was good, he asked me alot about markings, expression and which fur I wanted. He showed me a lot of photos of the fur and we had an good contact to this time and he showed me WIPS and a video as he created the fursuit for me. He is not perfect, because his mood can be changes very fast… and I have nothing to do with his private problems, I pay for a fursuit with quality and private problems are no excuse to make a fursuit with low quality.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Everything is good when you are happy with his work. But sadly, if you have any issues, or something is missing, or uncleared and you ask about it, the sympathy from this maker disappears and his mood changes very fast… It looks like he can not work with critique and he should learn to work on it.
