Do you currently still own the item(s) you’re reviewing?

Did the maker meet your deadline?
My deadline was October; the maker delivered months before the deadline!

Did you tell the maker about any issues you had?

How many hours have you worn/used the item(s) you’re reviewing?
Give your best estimate.

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 wonderfully! A little loose and I’ll sometimes have to nudge the head up, but comfortable!
This is the best ventilation I’ve had on a fursuit so far; I can breathe freely and air circulates well throughout the head. Cute and cozy space lining!
I have a large blind spot in the center of my vision due to the unnatural shape of the character’s head, but the maker made up for that by providing 3 tear duct vision spots and enough space in the mouth for me to be able to look out of when necessary.

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

Cryptid is an unusual fursuit because he’s made entirely out of minky. However, he has very few wrinkles and bumps; his seams are even well hidden! No awkward cuts anywhere, either! The best job I’ve ever seen with minky on such an unsual foam shape!
There is some airbrushing as requested, but it does not leave the minky feeling excessively rough or crunchy.
The neck is a bit short for my taste, but I have no other complaints whatsoever and generally don’t notice, since I usually wear a hoodie with the fursuit.
The head is a perfect match to the concept art! I couldn’t have asked for better!

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

The special feature is that the head is fully minky. This was done per my request, and means that the fursuit takes more time to clean, but it is smooth and soft.

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.

The hands are minky lined with a lyrca-like material, and they’re extremely soft! They are comfortable to wear and not a single seam has popped, nor do my wrists show! They stay on perfectly and do not slide. Super cozy!

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

As mentioned before, minky is a high-maintenance material, but the hands are very easy to clean.

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
Absolutely perfect! I love how the maker nailed the complex head shape!

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?
Well fitting and symmetrical, overall a comfortable and great suit!

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?
All it took was a DM over Instagram, and I was able to commission her within the day of my quote!

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Extremely satisfied! The maker replied within minutes!

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 maker delivered the fursuit far before my deadline!

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
100% I’m glad I took the time to research a professional maker who would accurately replicate the head shape of the character, which is what +3 Defense did perfectly.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Amazing; the maker was kind and courteous throughout every step of the way and put up with my request for minky!

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
No cons! +3 Defense is a fantastic maker whom I’d highly recommend. She was wonderful to work with the entire time, and very professional! Overall, it was a lovely experience.
