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?
Both of us are extremely satisfied with the fit of the masks. Some of our most comfortable suits! Fit us perfectly, liner material is very nice.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Very well! There are vents near the ears that keep our heads cool, and the large mouth openings allow for lots of air flow! We rarely ever sweat in these suits!

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)
For Heart, there is a larger blind spot, so I do have to favor one eye a lot. Material is good though I can see well!
For Grave, his blond spot is not noticeable and he sees very well even without his glasses.

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Very well done on both! Neither have symmetry issues.

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
Shaving is done super well on both suits! Very neat.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
Both of us love the expressions on the masks! Heart is very friendly looking and Beat is quite mischievous looking, we both love them!

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?
For both of us, hands fit us very well, very comfortable. No problems with hand paws! However both of us do have issues with the feet paws. Mine are slightly too big, and the material used to line them is slippery, making them hard to walk in. Beat’s feet fit him well, but he has expressed the slippery material is difficult as well.
Even with them hard to walk in, they are comfortable!

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?
No problems here! They are built well, the materials used are great!

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?

Both of us love our tails! They are built well, the fur is awesome, and Tunny even color coded the back of them for us!

How accurate to the concept art is your tail?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
They matched the concept art he drew perfectly, these were artistic liberty suits.

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?
Both of us have no isses here! Built very well, flexible, and durable!

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?
Both of us have arm sleeves and we are very satisfied with them! Fit us wonderfully and never fall down thanks to the strapping.

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

How easy are your sleeves/warmers to wear?
Do they fall off?
Very, they have elastic strapping so they stay up!

VISUAL ASPECTS

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

Tunny designed the suits himself, after he drew out the designs we approved them and the suits match the art perfectly!

How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up?
