HEAD
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the fursuit.

How satisfied are you with the fit of the head?
Is it too tight or loose? Does anything poke you, stab you, make it uncomfortable to wear? Is it lined comfortably?
The head fits great! I had it fitted for glasses, and I can wear them underneath if need be, but it also fits when I wear contacts as well. It is lined and very comfortable.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
I can breathe very well, and I can wear it for long stints of time without need to remove.

How is the vision?
Can you see well in front of you? Is there a large blind spot? Do you have to turn your head to see? (Note: most suits do not have peripheral vision)
I can see pretty well! She has great vision.

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Symmetry is great!

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
The shaving is perfect, good transition and no choppyness.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
She’s adorable! The expression couldn’t get more cute, and I’m very pleased with how Sarahcat got the cute factor in that I asked for.

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 hands are attached to the armsleeves and are very comfy to wear!

The feet were built on shoes in my size, so they fit very well!

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?
The hands/flippers were created with a velcro pocket so I can put my hands out as needed. Great quality.

The feet are very cute, plush and soft, and created in a way so that they are SUPER light and easy to dance in.

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?

The tail is cute, small, and the straps are very sturdy.

How accurate to the concept art is your tail?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
Colors and markings are spot on!

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?
Sleeves are attached to the hands. The quality is very good, and they are soft and fluffy!

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

How easy are your sleeves/warmers to wear?
Do they fall off?
They fit well and don’t slide down with normal wear, and while there was no elastic sewn in as this was commissioned before she started to add those, she took good care of me and sent me some straps I could use to hold them up.
