HANDS AND FEET
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with each feature of the body of the fursuit.

How satisfied are you with the fit of the hands and feet?
Will your wrists/ankles show if you stretch too much? Do they stay on your hands or do they slide off? Can you put them on comfortably with ease?
The feet fit fine and are easy to walk in. They did take a bit of getting used to since I’ve never worn stompy feet before, but I was quick to learn.

How is the quality of the hands and feet? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Have seams popped? Have paw pads or claws fallen off?
Some of the shaving is a bit uneven on the toes. And one foot’s toes are flatter than the other foot’s. The fur attached to the foam in the stompy feet isn’t very glued down, but I can fix that myself! I am very satisifed despite the small imperfections!

TAIL
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with each feature of the tail of the fursuit.

How is the quality of the tail? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Is it too cumbersome? Can you pull on it without tearing? Are the straps secure and even?
If there is any padding or armature, does it look right and function correctly?

Good quality fur, belt loops are well-sewn on, and nothing has ripped. Definitely satisified. It has a nice wag to it and it’s very perky!

How accurate to the concept art is your tail?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
Everything is acurrate and the tail length is exactly what I wanted.

ARM/LEG WARMERS AND/OR SLEEVES
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with each feature of the arm and/or leg warmers, and arm and/or leg sleeves, especially if they are seperate from the fursuit.

How is the quality of the sleeves/warmers? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Are they too cumbersome? Can you pull on them without tearing?
Very happy! Everything is well-sewn and neat.

How accurate to the concept art are your sleeves/warmers?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
Very accurate!

How easy are your sleeves/warmers to wear?
Do they fall off?
The legs are attached to a pair of exercise shorts, so they stay up! Very very comfy. The bottoms of the leg sleeves slide over the feet.

VISUAL ASPECTS

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
