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.

Fits perfectly. Is snug enough so that he doesnt wiggle around but is not causing any uncomfortable pressure on any points ie ears or nose.

Ventilation is pretty good. Gets a fair bit warm with the jaw shut but is possible to prop open the jaw for better airflow.

Vision is great for a 2D head. There isnt much of a blind spot in the center and the eyes let in a lot of light so can still see fairly well in say for example a dark con space.

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

Symnetry is pretty much perfect, which is great considering that the cheek fluff must of been awkward to get equal.

Even smooth shaving, no backing can be seen anywhere on the head.

Fur is very soft, especially after a brush through and at times a simple smoothen over with the hand is enough to neaten the fur without a need for a brush, saving those precious fibers.

Overall, i am very pleased with his look. He is very adorable and easy to appear derpy if desired. The removable tounge is a great addition too. Can get varied expressions from different angles rather easily

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
I say that it matches very closely. the less puffy hair on the suit was at my request :)

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?
Despite the other parts being from different makers the head matches up with the rest of the suit perfectly and as for the fur on the head itself all stitching seems seamless and the thread is invisible.

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?
Was very easy mostly because she is a friend, However I know she is very easy to contact either on FB or FA for a quote and is fast with reading and responding to messages

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Very quickly, but again probably because she was a friend and we were talking over Telegram. Apart from that i imagine her to be very responsive during the hours that she is not sleeping or at her day job.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
Was completed a couple months before the may deadline so very happy.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very high quality. Yet to spot any holes or problems with the glue. Has comfortably taken a bit of squishing when it comes to traveling too without a problem

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
When it came to getting my opinion on something or asking me how i felt so far she was very professional and great customer service. was always happy to take ideas or suggestions I had too.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Pros: friendly and speedy service.
Got to see WIPS through her facebook page stream
High quality, at an affordable price
Very well recieved by others.

Cons: Because she was a friend I cannot give my best opinion on things like professionalism and customer service, as when doing work for a friend things are talked about differently and work is done differently (for example- the head was done before i even finished paying the whole thing off)

Other than that, she does own animals so if you have an allergy to cats or dogs its best to talk to her and mention that first before you claim a slot.
