Price Sold For
If you have sold the item since this review, how much did you sell for?
Did the maker meet your deadline?
No deadline was set up! My slot was slated for September completion, and once he was fully paid off, it took about a week to complete from start to finish
Did you tell the maker about any issues you had?
I have not had any!
How many hours have you worn/used the item(s) you’re reviewing?
Give your best estimate.
The kigu is amazingly comfortable, and the hood is bigger than any of the ones i’ve purchased in the past, which allows for ease of wear. The hood is also lined
All the seams inside the kigu are serged, and the buttonholes are finished. Buttons are secured nicely, and I was sent an extra just in case
The kigu does contain pockets, also they are a bit lower than I am used to, more on my legs than hips. Not a problem at all, just takes a little getting used to
Overall, I expect this thing to last quite a while
I am so pleased with how he came out. The face on the hood is absolutely adorable, and the details put into the design, his ears, and the overall construction of the body are amazing.
The literal only ‘complaint’ I have is that the hair tuft is not sewn down completely on the head and has a tendency to flop backwards with a lot of movement. It’s not anything hugely debilitating, just means i need to keep an eye on it er maybe throw a stitch down to keep it in place
But they captured my character to a T

Quite easy! I even asked them to requote me after a friend decided to gift me a kigurumi of the character I had originally asked for, and it was a breeze
How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
