Armsleeves are wonderful! They fit perfectly, ending just above my normal short-sleeve line. They seem very durable, I have yet for a seam to pop on me. The insides of the sleeves are lined with lycra and are so cool and comfortable to wear! Air seems to flow through them pretty well, air hitting the lycra instantly makes it cooler.
I’m very satisfied with the markings on the sleeves! They match the concept art I gave very well. The fur is super soft fluffy. I’m fairly happy with the colors, the only issue we had was that these parts were matching a suit I currently own that the original fur run was a year and a half before these sleeves and paws. There is a slight color discrepancy between the lighter color on the sleeves and the original suit, but it’s not noticeable from a distance and they are mostly hidden under shirt sleeves anyways. The dark brown matches nearly identically to the original suit.
I love how the feet fit! They are built on soled slippers and are super comfy to walk around in. Fur extends up past my ankle so no skin shows in normal use, and they do not slip off my feet at all. They are super high quality and with the outdoor soles I don’t worry about getting them very dirty! When I first got them there was an excess of glue around the outdoor sole, but since then the glue has mostly worn off. Interior of the feetpaws are unlined but with the slippers there is no real need for them to be lined.
They have good symmetry with the toes curved ever so slightly in the direction that normal shoes curve in. Being that the feet are one color, markings don’t matter here. The shaving is super smooth on the toes and they are super soft to the touch. The claws were made by DVC and I love them, although with wear I’ve noticed that they have gained scuff marks on the ends after walking on concrete. This is not noticeable from average points of view, only if you view the underside of the feet.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
She always kept close contact during the process, sent multiple wips to make sure I was happy with how things were going and was just as excited to work on these parts as I was to have them be made for me! The only con I could see being had is that she mostly uses DVC parts for the toes and claws, so if you are looking for someone who uses their own toes/claws casts, then this would not be a suitable maker. Otherwise I have no other cons!
