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.

It fits perfectly. I have asked for a big head because I need to use glasses, so the size is a little bigger than my actual head. I can hear and speak okay, isn’t too difference from without the head.
My country is so hot, but the fursuit’s mouth is open, I can breath and drink water without problems. My hair and my chin sweat a lot, but is the same if I use some hat or any other mask.
My vision isn’t good, I feel like I have the same vision area in the fursuit that I have usually. I use my glasses inside the head and works fine for me. I have to turn my head to see some directions, like I have to do everyday.
One of the eyes are a “X”, I have asked to she makes this eye’s vision be only in the X’s mark. I liked how it worked! This same eye have a huge fringe in the front, like myself. My vision inside the head is similar to my normal vision.

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

My character isn’t totally simetric. So, in the fursuit, the tail, nose and the ears are simetrical and the eyes and mouth isn’t, like my concept.
I like to brush the fur, is soft and easy to do. The national fur from my country isn’t the best and softer, but the maker have shaved very well.
The eyes are static to be more cartoony like my drawing and because my eyes are biiig.
Kyoki is cute and the fursuit is cute too, I think the furmaker have done a really good job tracing the suit like the original concept. Only huge difference is the snout, but I confess, I don’t have a good 3D sense to draw the head perfect matched and calculated, so this modification is fair.
The tongue is retractable and removable, I have received two tongues to use like I want. I can take photos with different expressions just putting the tongue in other way. I loved the front view, the side view and the 3/4 view, I don’t have taken so many photos before!

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 really soft and has a weight that makes it swing smoothly, it’s good to dance.
I need to put it with a belt, but it’s easy.
Don’t have any scale or spikes, just a cute colorful and soft fur, seams to be very durable.

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

I liked my tail, this have the shape what I asked for, the same colors and number of stripes, everything perfect.
It’s simetrical, soft, easy to brush. The fur is a little softer than the fursuit head.

She’s a little girl starting her job, she’s so fantastic and I’m very proud of my hardcore little girl!

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
And think to commission more! Create a fursuit is soooo fun, it’s hard and can bring bad dreams, but it’s a wonderful experience. I loved the Rachel’s work, she’s a dream maker. If I had more money I would put all my friends inside fursuits and we would all dance around the rainbow!
