Relationship With Maker
The maker WAS a friend when the item was purchased, but they are NOT a friend now

Prior Experience
No this is my first one, however two of my close friends do.
One of them was a fursuit maker and went over my head with me to help gather information for this review, my other friend owns three suits from the maker, none of which match the quality of the partial i received.

Informed Maker of Issues
Yes immediately. As soon as the box was received and opened I contacted the maker immediately.
What we agreed upon and what i paid for was no where near the quality she was known for or what was promised.
She claimed it was a temporary head to be worn for Anthrocon while she started my actual suit.
We did not agree on this, nor was it ever discussed.

Character Concept Art

Photos of Completed Product

Head

Wear Satisfaction

Impossible to wear! The material, fabric, and foam made it not possible to breathe while wearing.
The ears had cardboard inside of them, and the fur was very low quality almost resembling the cheap jo ann craft fur.
The head base almost looks like the cheep bunny mask spirit halloween sells just slightly altered.
The inside of the head was layered with a thick fleece making it way top warm and constricting.
There was no ventilation whatsoever.



Visual Satisfaction

The quality of the head is extremely disappointing and not at all what i had ordered.
The head symmetry on the left side is uneven and looks dented.
The shaving is very uneven and choppy, the airbrushing is so rushed it makes the fur crunch and looks very out of place.
Fur feels very brittle and cheap, it doesn’t seem like good quality.
Not at all satisfied with the expression, it looks way to dead pan and morbid.
I fear wearing the head as it seems like it would frighten kids.
It does not match my concept art at all, it was very loosely referenced.

Special Attachments and Features

The feet paws were never received even though they were paid for.
The head was suppose to be Stuffedpandastudios resin base with a movable jaw, neither of which were used.
The overall quality of the suit is very poor making the suit unwearable.

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

Hand paws were way to small, unshaven, unlined, and did not match the character reference
The feet paws themselves were never received.



Visual Satisfaction

Paws are same size, though some fingers are to tight and don’t line up correctly.

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

Tail was the only salvageable part.
Though it is uneven, it is wearable.



Visual Satisfaction

Tail is alright just uneven.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How was your concept art realized?
I don’t feel the maker followed the concept art at all rather loosely referenced it.

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Nothing matches, two different shades of grey were used when there should only be one.
The seams are popping and coming undone just from trying the suit on.

Head, and arm sleeves are way to tight and unwearable.

Overall Project Quality
Not at all happy, this was my first suit and I was really looking forward to it. Not only have i not been given even a partial refund, but the maker still has yet to apologize, or make the new suit as they had promised to do so. I have no hope of getting my money back, or the better suit promised.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Through a friend, Text message, and paypal.

Maker Response Time
It was fine if we weren’t talking about the suit, but when i asked i never seemed to get a reply.

Maker Professionalism
She was professional during our earlier transactions, but when i requested a refund the maker denied me, and said she doesn’t do refunds.

Project Completion Time
Not at all happy. I never gave her a deadline, therefore she had plenty of time to work on the head but insisted on giving me a rushed partial.

Rating FursuitReview rates by asking the question:
Would you recommend this maker?


NO

This review has been marked with a negative rating.
This means the reviewer would NOT recommend FarisBatwan unless they significantly change their practices.

Final Comments
Maker has good communication skills but seems to do what they want when making suits. I never asked for a temporary suit nor did i ask for it to be completed so quickly as i was willing to wait for quality.
I have screen shots of all the transactions, interactions, and suit damage saved on my phone if a more detailed Review is required.
I would not recommend FBsuits to anyone, if you are planning to commission them please be cautious as her quality fluctuates rapidly.

  1. What the hell?! It looks like she cobbled that together in a day! All these FB stories are so disappointing but this is the most WTF of all of them

  2. The markings don’t match AT ALL. Wowza. You really can’t tell it’s even supposed to be the same character. . . .
