Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

They feel comfy, they’re partially lined with lycra, which holds in the stuffing. The bottom of the inside is unlined which makes wearing the paws feel odd as it’s not a consistent feeling. They fit just fine as I provided my shoe size for Sugarnspice. The seams are durable and I can’t find any holes or similar defects.



Visual Satisfaction

The paws look pretty much perfect, the double dew claws on the back are a little small but that’s not too big if a deal. They dont entirely look like the examples they had when I was commissioning them but the fur, claw, and paw pad colors are all correct and the shaving is even on the top but on the bottom it’s a little patchy in spots.

Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
As it’s just feet theres nothing to match to, but the paws match my fursona well. The colors are consistent but as I mentioned before the paws were not consistent with the examples I was shown. They matched the style of paws around when they were being made but not when I commissioned them.

Overall Project Quality
I am happy with the paws, the were definitely worth the price but not worth the time.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Very easy, I just messaged them on twitter

Maker Response Time
Very dissatisfied. Twice it took them 6 months to respond to my messages and “fast” responses for them took a week.

Maker Professionalism
I dont feel as though I was treated well at all. I was lied to about the status of my commission, I’m pretty sure I was sent photos of someone else’s commission. I was never added to the maker’s trello which was bothersome.

Project Completion Time
I’m not satisfied at all. The feet are good quality but for a year and a half of waiting (not even being on a commission list, I would understand if I was at the bottom of a list, but in December of 2018 I was told they were almost complete) I am not happy with them.

Final Comments
I have very few if any good things to say about this maker. They were kind and easy to talk to in the beginning but having to wait months in between messages and given 5 separate ETAs and multiple contrasting statements about their status I was not a happy camper with Sugarnspicefur.
The paws themselves arrived dirty (covered in foam bits and fur that didnt match my paws) and the only photo that I received of the paws in progress I strongly believe were not my paws as the lining that they have does not match the lining in the photo they sent (it was their logo in the photo, but they’re galaxy patterned in real life).
Unless they get their act together I highly recommend staying away from this maker.

Comments

  1. Sugar N Spice tends to skip ETAs with loads of customers. Unacceptable since they just make up excuse after excuse.
