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.

I’m very satisfied with the fit. Natsuro asked for measurements and he obviously took them into account. Nothing pokes me or is uncomfortable. It is a tad snug, but its not a problem to me at all. That just means it isn’t loose, which is good! It is limed with a balaclava so it makes it a bit cooler.

I can breathe very well. The inside of the muzzle is carved out so that there’s better airflow. All I have to do is shift the muzzle a teeny bit so I can get a blast of fresh air. It has pretty good circulation.

The eyes are large, so vision is excellent! I can see very well from both sides, although since I don’t wear glasses in suit my right eye is a bit worse than my left but it’s not a problem with the suit at all. Of course there’s a blind spot between the eyes and on the peripheral vision but that’s normal for a fursuit head.

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

Symmetry is pretty much perfect! Sparky has a lock of hair that goes on one side so it’s supposed to be that way and Natsuro nailed it! It matches the reference art perfectly.

Shaving is very even. No backing can be seen. Transition from short to long fur is great.

The fur is super soft, as I’ve been told by quite a few people at conventions or just friends. Very easy to maintain and clean.

The follow-me eyes are expressive and absolutely adorable, an expression that I specifically requested and my maker catered to without an issue! He even carved in a cute little “smile” onto the head on both sides so she looks cute from any angle C:

All of the suit matches concept art like I expected.

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 and feet fit perfectly. They are comfy and I could wear them for hours. I can easily grab things with my hands and walk up stairs in my feet. My wrists are tiny so naturally the hands may slip a bit but it’s not a problem as it’s hard to make anything that can fit my wrists.

Not a single seam has popped, even from taking them on and off and spending hours at a cinvention and outdoors.I’ve rolled and stomped and grabbed things and no damage has occurred. They look good as new.

The feet have big fleece claws, like her ref.

The hands and feet are not lined, but are comfy. I sent my gymshoes to Natsuro so he could build the feet around them, so of course they’re comfy. Not messy at all from what I can see, he even lined the cuffs of the feetpaws.

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

Symmetry is fantastic, Couldn’t ask for anything better.

Shaving is even where it was done.

Fur feels great, soft and fluffy, I sometimes just pet it because it’s sooooo smooth!

I’m very happy with the colors.

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.

The tail is tiny, simple, and cute. Nothing has torn or ripped but so far I haven’t worn it too much. Straps are even and can be worn with any belt I own.

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

Looks great, nothing lopsided as far as I can see, its a really simple design. Satisfied with everything used, fur is soft and it’s adorably fluffy,

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
Everything matches the concept art I provided, save for the mint hair. My maker and I struggled to find mint green fur for the hair, but when suggested lime green, I agreed and he helped me out with picking an alternate fur. Needless to say, it doesn’t match the ref but I’ve incorporated this color into her new ref sheet coming soon. It’s awesome!

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 matches and fits where it needs to be. No problems there.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Never longer than a day or two. He answered every question I had to a T.
