OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


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

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Markings match up great with the overal look! Very seamless appearance, everything flows naturally
Has that “Thunderhowl” look but unique enough to be distinguished from other maker’s suits

Overall Project Quality

Project exceeded my expectations, Nea was made better than I could imagine when I first created her. I would recommend Thunderhowl as a possible maker to consider

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

Initial Contact

Very easy, they announced an opening on their social medias with their form, once I got the slot communication was through email or Telegram. They definitely take customer service seriously and willing to walk you through the steps. There was no confusion during the process

Maker Response Time

Response time was prompt, maybe an hour wait time at most during daytime working hours. Initial slot acceptance was through email, but commission communication took place through their business Telegram

Maker Professionalism

Very professional, all contact was commission related. They asked necessary questions on anything needing clarity, making sure I was OK before starting something. Lots of WIP pics! They’re local, so I had the chance to test out the head and body suit; these visits were entirely business related and to the point

Project Completion Time

Completion was less than a year with a public queue available. They promise suits are done within a year of payment at most and they for sure made their deadline with Nea
