Relationship With Maker
The maker IS a friend
Yes, she also made Smudge’s head.
Informed Maker of Issues
I did mention that I had a bit of trouble walking in it at first. This was partly due to not being used to digitigrade legs, and partly due to an injury in my foot that was still healing, and partly because they legs and feet are quite large and took some getting used to. The suit was also built around a foam body pod, which was not made by this maker. I have had the suit for a year now, and walking in it has become somewhat easier.

How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.
I love the feet. They were made from soft bedroom slippers and are very comfortable. The whole suit fits me perfectly and is comfortable to wear, aside from heat issues. The only trouble that I have is the heat, which is to be expected in any fursuit, but I do think the foam body pod makes it hotter than most. I have found that wearing an ice pack vest helps with this somewhat.

Very easy, but I am friends with her and talk to her on a regular basis.

Yes, she is very professional and let me know what she needed from me to complete the fursuit.

Everything was done in a timely manner. The actual fursuit was completed in a month, and I received it in time for FWA 2017.
I really like working with this maker, it is very easy for me to work with her because I know her so well, but I also think that her work is very good and worth the price as well. I would definitely recommend this maker. She is someone who can work with deadlines and has quality work.
