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 perfectly, it’s snug and the foam inside makes sure nothing rubs the wrong way

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 the small fan helps a bit as well

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)
There’s not a blind spot in front, AT ALL. I’d hear about tunnel vison, but not at all with my mask.

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Everything looks symmetrical to me

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
Nothing is choppy and the shaving was done well. Only the area where the markings are is kind of rough when felt.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
I am VERY satisfied with my head. The ears are very expressive and move as to where I’d like them

EARS
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with each feature of the ears, especially if they are seperate from the fursuit head.

How is the quality of the ears? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Are they too cumbersome? Can you pull on them without tearing? Are they even on your head?
The ears are perfect, and flop a around a small bit, which I greatly enjoy. I asked for them to be moveable, and I received. While I only wanted them to be up, or down, I can also bend them to the side

How easy is it to wear your ears?
Do they fall off? Are they painful to clip on? Do you require someone else to put them on for you?

VISUAL ASPECTS
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with visual aspects associated with the fursuit.

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
If there was no concept art, please state N/A
To the point, Very satisfied

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?
Everything looks amazing and matches up to my previous commissions fur

COMMUNICATION
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?
Quoting was very simple

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
It would take a day or two to get a response, but it means that they are working!

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
DexterousZombie was very pleasant to work with, I asked for WIPs of the ears because that’s one of the focal points on my suit and when changes were needed, I got asked several questions so that things turned out well

OVERALL
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with your overall experience with the maker and the fursuit itself.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
I really wish my sleeves came along with my head, but I didn’t fully need my sleeves.

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
I am very satisfied. Based off of other’s suits, mine had the absolute best vision and quality. Nothing fell apart!

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Super satisfied, I’d check in periodically and I would always get a response.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Working with them was great. They don’t work to deadlines but did their best with completing my commission on time.
