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 is made od a resin base, and has an elastic strap bult in so you can set it to fit your head perfectly.

Built in battery powered fan makes it easy to breathe and let the cool air flow. Drilled nose holes for a even better ventilation.

The vision is limited (like most realistic heads) to a view right behind you and there is a small blind spot right where the muzzle is, when someone or something is in the middle and too near, you can overlook it.

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

From the first day I got it, I am very satisfied and glad with how it looks. The fur is ideally shaved for a german shepherd dog, and the markings depict a real GSD, how it looks, are airbrushed and hold on perfectly even after 2 years.

The head features follow me resin eyes, and with help of the eyes and the markings, I can do various expressions, like “dog eyes” (the sad begging face) and so on.

Moveble jaw is there for sure too :)

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.

HANDPAWS:
Fit my hand perfectly and I can move freely. THey have big latex pawpads and resin claws, and because of the big pads, it should be sometimes problem to operate with small things (like pressing the camera shutter)

As for quality, they are very well sewed and so far I haven’t had any problems like seams ripping, or claw falling off

FEETPAWS:
Constructed on an Adidas urban footwear, with a casting foam. Instead of rubber sole, there is a fur and a hard and durable PU pawpads glued on, to make them look realistic. Outdoor tested.

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 about ideal length to my body, filled with cotton wool, so it’s light and it wags from side to side when walking, just like a real dog’s tail. Airbrushed marking.

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
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?
Very satisfied, the colors stay bright like new even after 2 years, the airbrushing holds on nicely. Everything fits the way it’s meant to be :)

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?
Very satisfied.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Very satisfied, would recommend. The maker replies as soon as possible, mostly the same day. The communication with them is great, they keep you up to date with work on the project, ask about adjustments or special needs, provide photos of “work-in-progress”

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
The deadline was not set, However I’ve received my suit in 2 months after comissioning, so I am more than satisfied with the completion date.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very satisfied, would recommend comissioning them.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Very professional, they keep you informed about the progress, provide WIP pictures, fast replies and great communication

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Everything was great :)
Contacted them with a quote for a partial suit of a realistic German Shepherd Dog, the communication was very professional. During the progress, they sent me WIP photos of the project to keep me (as their client) informed about the current status.

I would definitely recommend them, if you want to comission a realistic fursuit. Even their prices are affordable and the completion times are best from what I’ve seen around.
