Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.
It is comfortable and easy to wear in general. Easy to put on and take off and the movement of the tail is never an inconvenience, the sway of the tail while I’m walking feels natural and almost like I have an actual tail. The quality is very good, the seams are well done and have not fallen apart in the slightest. I can pull on the seams and they don’t break apart. The straps are secured well and are mostly even.
Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.
I’m very satisfied with the appearance. It looks very similar to the concept art and is just the way I wanted it. There is nothing lopsided. They don’t match the character design exactly but her design is hard to pull off so it works out well with the improv. It’s even and not choppy. It is the right transition between the two colors on my tail, exactly as it needed to be. The fur is mostly very soft and not crunchy at all, it is easy to brush and maintain.

How was your concept art realized?
The concept art was made based on both the design and real life examples of tails that are similar. The maker did not require an artist, they drew it themselves. The tail design matches my character design the best they could do, as even a skilled maker would have trouble bringing the design to reality.
How well does everything fit together and match up?
There are no visible gaps on the tail at all, where the colors are different are perfectly sperated as they are supposed to be. It mostly fits correctly, it’s a little less stuffed than it needs to but it works out fine as it makes it sway more, it isn’t by much. Nothing tugs on any other parts of the tail. It is consistent with the Maker’s style.
Overall Project Quality
I am very happy with the product I received. The commission was made the way I liked, and was made of good quality. It was definitely worth the price, in fact I would have paid more for the quality it was. The product definitely will last a long time.
Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.
I posted on Reddit looking for a maker and they responded, providing me their telegram where we spoke for the rest of the commission. They asked a lot of questions to ensure I got what I wanted for my commission.
Maker Response Time
I am very satisfied with the response time, they do not take long to respond and will talk daily if need be. They were consistent with their contact method through telegram.
I am very satisfied with the costumer service of this maker. They made sure to update every so often on the tail progress (even when it came to ordering fabrics and tail shipment). They asked questions occasionally while updating to ensure it was how I wanted it to be. They weren’t extremely professional in the sense they were friendly and easy to talk with about other topics (which I enjoyed) but we’re professional when talking about the commission otherwise.
Project Completion Time
I am pretty satisfied with how long it took, it was relatively quick considering the good quality and the fact that they had their own life too. They shipped it almost immediately after they were done with the tail.
My overall experience was positive. I enjoyed talking to this maker and was happy with the quality of the tail, their response time, their customer service, and how often they updated on the commission. I would definitely recommend this maker to others due to the positive experience with them.
