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?
Very! After receiving the mask, it was a tight for a couple wears, but soon the foam shaped to fit my face perfectly! It is a bit on the heavy side, but it is still comfortable.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
It’s pretty good! It does get warm pretty quick, but lots of air goes through the mouth because it’s open, and the eyes let in a lot too.

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 is a blind spot, so I do favor one eye over the other. The bangs do cover one eye, but I do still get some vision under the bangs, I do however favor the right eye more. Material used is easy to see through!

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Perfect! Everything matches up well!

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
Shaved very well! No bald spots, not choppy!

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
Very!! Love the happy look she has! Suit is very toony looking which I love!

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?
Those giant ears are super durable! Flexible too. Have been pulled on many times and have had no issues.

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
Very! The bangs were made very well, the back of the head was Tweeko’s own idea/design, and although it did look slightly different from my concept art I really loved the spikes and how she did them!

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?
Extremely! Everything matches up perfectly!

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?
She responded with my quote very quickly!

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
How long did it take them to respond?
Tweeko always answered within 38 hours after I mailed her. The Twinky Arts twitter was also very helpful!

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
Very, always remained friendly and professional.

OVERALL

Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
My deadline was RF2012, and it arrived to be 4 days before!

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Extremely! While this mask may not be my main suit anymore, it has held up very well. I have never needed to repair this suit! She still looks like new!

Very, kept me up to date on WIP’s and was always polite!
