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 fits perfectly. It’s loose enough to turn the head around, but tight enough where it doesn’t slip down or fall off easily. It does not have a zipper; slipping it on is easy and comfortable with its soft liner.

Ventilation is great due to the muzzle fan, which is powered by a small power bank. I can breathe easily, but if the battery dies, the head will get a bit warm before long.

Vision is amazing for this suit. Obviously, blind spots will occur, i.e. I can’t see my booper. However, blind spots are minimal and I have great line of sight compared to other suits.

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

Symmetry is great; don’t have any issues regarding symmetry.

Shaving is even and the makers worked with me for certain fur length transitions.

The fur is definitely high-quality and very smooth and fluffy. Over time, the fur has started to crimp, but that’s to be expected with any type of faux fur.

I am extremely satisfied with expression of the head, especially face on with the 3D follow-me eyes. I can get a few different expressions looking directly at a camera. At an angle, he doesn’t look quite as cute, but great overall.

Yes; the makers surprised me with a mohawk since I was expecting just a small tuft of head floof. However, the mohawk looks amazing.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your head has.

Muzzle fan – a small fan was installed into the muzzle of the head. It runs off a small power bank that is also located inside the head. Since these particular power banks are easy to find online, I have a couple that I can switch out as I deplete others.

BODY
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the body of the costume.
If you are reviewing armsleeves or legs/pants that are seperate from a bodysuit, your answers would also go in this section.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your costume.

The bodysuit fits perfectly. For me, it fits very snug and is quite form-fitting. Nonetheless, movement is great, and it’s very comfortable.

Seams have been very durable; haven’t had any issues, even though I’ve been to several cons and done some public suiting.

Interior isn’t necessarily lined, but all the seams look professional and the suit’s easy to get into.

Airflow is decent; I wouldn’t say it’s any worse than the average bodysuit.

Symmetry is great with the character markings!

Shaving is even.

The fur is definitely high-quality and very smooth and fluffy. Over time, the fur has started to crimp around the tail, but that’s to be expected.

Totally satisfied! The colors and markings were perfectly translated from concept art to reality!

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your bodysuit has.

As far as features go, my makers did an excellent job with the zipper. Compared to other suits I’ve seen, mine is one of the easiest suits to put on. Instead of going straight down the middle of my torso, they hid the zipper along the left side of my suit’s white fur markings, allowing it to blend in perfectly.

They also included a couple pockets on the inside of the suit, which is very handy since I can still carry around my phone and keys if necessary without needing to carry a backpack.

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.

Extremely satisfied! My 5-fingered paws are very plush and comfortable to wear. As expected, it’s difficult to pick things up, but my dexterity is pretty decent for my paws. My wrists originally showed sometimes when I actively suited, but they added additional fur which helped to resolve the issue. I can put them on with ease, but they will fly off if I throw a Frisbee lol.

The seams have been really durable. I haven’t had any issues with my handpaw claws or pawpads. The stuffing in one of my fingers has moved a bit, but I haven’t found it to be an uncomfortable issue.

The interior of the handpaws are lined and very comfortable.
My feetpaws are very comfortable to wear, even when suiting for several hours on my feet. They are built off croc sandals; easy to put on and remove, but still provide a snug fit.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your hands or feet have.

The claws on my handpaws are great, and my makers did an excellent job at sewing on silicon pawpads. I’m still not sure how they pulled it off, but they are amazing, and provide a very realistic and cute feel for my paws.

I also upgraded to indoor feetpaws. I would definitely recommend it since it provides more versatility, and the vinyl pawpads look very cute. However, the pawpads and fur on the bottom of the paws are a bit scuffed when I forgot to wear my sandals inside at a con. I expect a bit of wear and tear over time, but they definitely show it.

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 very comfortable, and sometimes I’ll just wear it without the rest of my fursuit. It’s a very solid tail, but very soft as well. With a small belt loop, it’s very easy to put on.

The quality is superb!

The belt strap is very durable, and haven’t had any issues with my tail falling off.

The padding is very full, but I can get some movement from my tail.

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
Yes; it matches nearly exactly. The mohawk was the only deviation that I was not initially expecting.

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?
Yes; the markings are superb and both color and fur length are consistent.

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?
The makers responded pretty quickly to my quote.

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
The response time was good. Sometimes I would need to send a followup email, but they’ve been great with communication.

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 makers did their best to ship it to me on time, just in time for my deadline.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
I am extremely satisfied with my project. The makers were great to work with. Communications was great, they resolved the minor issues I had with my arm sleeve length, and the suit turned out great!

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Again, I can’t say enough about them. They were both professional and extremely helpful with the small issues. They sent me WIPs during the build, and I would consider my experience with them to be very easy and fun to bring my character to life.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Overall, it was a great experience!
Sometimes communication would take a little time, but they responded quickly to my followup emails.
They were extremely kind and helpful with my questions, and each of their suits comes with a fursuit kit, complete with a glue gun, some extra thread, and some disinfectant / suit sprays.

For their high level of quality, unique styles, and reasonable prices, I believe my makers are one of the best! Compared to some suit makers at the same price bracket, their style is always new and refreshing, and their quality (both fur and seams) is superb. I would definitely commission them again in the future! And I’d recommend them to anyone looking for a quality suit.
