Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The hands are so comfortable! I was shocked with how dexterous they are, despite how large the paws are. There are the usual limitations that you get with big paws, but it’s been super easy to wear.

The first wear was a bit tricky, as it took me a while to adjust the inner lining to adjust properly to be easy to wear. But once it started settling it’s super easy to get on and off!

No slipped seams. The inside is fully lined with lycra, so it is super soft and doesn’t get too hot. It does retain a lot of moisture but it dries fairly quickly when put in-front of a fan.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

Beautiful! Markings match my ref sheet.

I provided the fur and vinyl used in the paws. They are a true work of art.

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

Matched my concept art perfectly! Nothing special was needed to be done.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The paws are symmetrical with each other. Seams are lined up very well. No issues! 🙂

Matches all the handpaws that WUHD has made in the past.

Overall Project Quality

Extremely happy! It was absolutely worth the price I paid for. I keep recommending WUHD to all of my friends!

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

Super easy to contact. WUHD posted for submissions on Twitter. I filled out a form on their website and when they accepted they contacted me right away via email.

They listed out exactly what I had requested including the special request for longer wrists.

Maker Response Time

Extremely satisfied! They either responded same day or the next day at the latest. I was never waiting for an answer to a question. Always polite, kind, and wonderful when responding!

Maker Professionalism

Extremely satisfied. The quick responses made everything go super smooth. They were professional and friendly. They do an amazing job of making you really feel special during the process and well cared for!

Project Completion Time

I asked for one deadline for Anthrocon 2018 (At the time was about 5 months away) and they blew that deadline out of the water and finished it in ONE MONTH! The project was done so fast! Once the paws were finished they were shipped very soon after paying the invoice.
