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 comfortably, and is lightweight! There’s a small piece of foam that rests on my forehead to keep it snug. The ventilation could be a little better, but is very good. Vision gets the same mark since the eyes are not completely perforated, but I can still see very well.

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

The look of the head is exactly as described, and looks absolutely beautiful in person. The face is perfectly symmetrical, and the shaving is very smooth. The expression is very cute as well, even with black sclera as part of the design, the character still looks very sweet and inviting! I especially love the small bit of brushing detail for her blush marks on the cheeks! The fur has a pretty shine to it, even on the shaved areas, and brushes down very smoothly and easily. The tongue is also removable for a different kind of expression! The following eyes are gorgeous as well. They used perforated metal with an adhesive print out for the iris, and the final look is something really unique and professional looking.

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

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?
Everything is very consistent, it’s obvious the maker took a lot of care in providing a well put together head.

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?
Very satisfied. My first contact I believe was through email, and they were easy to talk with even with a bit of a language barrier (My first language is English, theirs is Japanese)

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Very! The whole arrangement only took a couple of days due to time zone differences, but we had everything taken care of within a week.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
No deadline was made since this was a premade head, but it was shipped very quickly! Between first contact and the box arriving at my door, I think it was only about 2 weeks.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very satisfied, the head is absolutely gorgeous, and I never have any trouble wearing it!

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Very, Sateko is a wonderful person to do business with. Even though our first languages are different, they were very patient and handled every interaction with a great deal of professionalism.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
The whole experience was very exciting and pleasant. My advice for working with them if you do not speak fluent Japanese would be to use very easy wording in your communication so there aren’t any misinterpretations, of course I say this for anyone who needs to make a transaction like this! The suit is so precious, and everyone who’s interacted with it loves it. Even with the foam padding to fit my head, she can still fit quite a few different people, I love how versatile the head is because of this! I would absolutely recommend Furtic/Sateko to anyone looking for affordable kemono styled suits.
