BODY
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.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your costume.

This suit was a premade so it was not made to fit my body type it was made to fit someone around 5 foot 7
We have allowed friends to wear the suit that closely fit the bodysuit and we still ran into the same issues.
On every person who has ever worn the bodysuit the hock padding always falls out. We actually lost one of them at ac and found it on the ground right before we left. That was the biggest issue ive had with the bodysuit. They both twist very badly and fall right out

The padding is also foam so its not very giving. they lined it in this ruff thick fabric so it gets very hot. They are also completely glued and not sewn at all so some areas are very hard. Here are some photos of the padding

The fabric is also fraying on the edges.

I also do not like the digi at all. In photos it looks round but in person its very blocky.

the bodysut has held up. A couple seams have poped but the entire bodysuit is sewn with a strait stitch so im not surprised seams pop. Some areas where not done well such as here

They also gave too much seam allowance the edges are uneven and very large so there is large seams rubbing against your skin.

There was one spot that was hand sewn im not sure why it was done only in that spot i didnt see a reason why it was sewn like that.

The inside is very very poorly done. They didn’t take the time to clean up and cut off any of the edges. This also shows seams on the outside as seen here

Another large issue was the cuff of one leg was not sewn at all. The other side was but there was still the issue of the large seam edges and seams showing on the outside. The bottom of the leg was so uneven from the lack of sewing and trimming.

I do not wear the bodysuit because its uncomfortable and the padding just falls out. Ive traded out the old padding for some of my padding just so I can stay cool and for it to look a little better. His body has been worn to 2 cons other than that hes normally a partial.

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

Symmetry is good other than the cuffs of the legs being uneven due to not trimming

Shaving on the belly was poorly done kind of chopy.
Fur is high quality soft fur.
I really love the color combo its really matches the original art they got before making the suit.

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.

Hands where ok. Same issues with large seams on the wrists. The fingers are all hand sewn and you can feel that when wearing them

The paw pads where poorly done they are uneven and on different spots on the finders. They are also not round at all. One is kind of a triangle and one is larger than the others
the shaving was poorly done on the fingers they make the fingers look uneven.

The fingers where all different the didn’t look consistent at all.

The hands are way too small for the suit. they are tight and uncomfortable. Other people with larger hands are unable to pick up things due to the fingers being too nubby and small.

Hands on the suit (the suit was made for someone this size)

It only looks normal when its someone smaller wearing the suit.

since the review is just for the hands and bodysuit. it was ok there where a lot of things that where poorly done but hes still wearable.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
I do wish they took their time on the product. i can tell they dont really know 100% what they are doing when it comes to making these items.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
I’ve worked with this maker twice after buying boomer.

I’ve had another bad experience with them. I would not recommend them to anyone else.

I mostly spoke to the other maker when buying the suit and they where awesome. i dont plain on going back to otter.nonsense for a pair of new paws because I know they will never be done due to past experiences. also being a suit maker myself ill just make everything myself.
