Head

Wear Satisfaction

The lining was slapped in and holes ripped out for the eyes,mouth and so on.
I had to fix the lining since it was coming out,exposing foam and whatever else the head is made of.
It’s hard to get on,even though it’s supposed to fit a 25′ head.
Once it’s on,it has the kind of eyesight you’d expect from a realistic head.
It’s somewhat tight,I can’t wear it very long and breathing can become hard at times.
The ventilation is mediocre,I often have to take the time to breath in more then I usually do.
My face tends to get smashed inside at times.



Visual Satisfaction

Some of the shaving was done wrong/cut too short that I had to fix the best I could with proper brushing.

The concept art was made after I purchased the head.

The symmetry is fine,I love the look of the head and the eyes are beautiful and follow nicely.
The special cast tounge,teeth and lips are a nice touch.

I can brush it fine with minimal shedding,the fur is soft and nice quality.

Special Attachments and Features

The horns are fine,basic/simple construction.

 

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

The paws were not fully finished,the maker never said anything about this so I have to work with what I have.
The [inside] of the paws are lined with three sheets of plastic for some reason and only go up so far,which makes no sense.
The overall structure of the paws is nice,the claws are nice.
No paw pads,little detailing to each finger.
The inside is one big mitten,no where for my fingers to go,so I have to take care in when I wave so it doesn’t flop around like some cheap mascot costume hand.

The feet are great,I had someone else make them.



Visual Satisfaction

The plastic stuff on the inside of the paws was unnessasary.
The paws were never fully furred.
The fingers were not sectioned off,turning the paws into mittens.

The feet were not made by this maker.
The feet are great and look great.

Special Attachments and Features

Claws are nice.
The paws tend to slide down.
No sections for fingers.
Not fully furred.

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

The tail fit fine.
But the top seam ripped,which I had to repair.
I also found out the maker stuffed a yard of random felt inside so I had to pop seams and restuff it and resew it by myself.
If I hadn’t,it would have remained sad and floppy.



Visual Satisfaction

Now that I fixed the tail,it looks great.
Before it was sad,floppy and lumpy.

Special Attachments and Features

Now that I fixed the tail,it looks great.
Even has a bit of a curve and way more bounce/life to it.

 

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
There were no markings,it was a simple double toned fur.

Overall Project Quality
The quality is fine,it’s just the execution I’m going to have to fix up on my own.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
There was no quote,it was an auction.

Maker Response Time
How long did it take them to respond?
It took too long and was hard to communicate with them.

Maker Professionalism
Were they pleasant to work with?
They were nice but they didn’t seem considered with quality all that much.

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Mediocre.
But like I said,they were nice.

Final Comments
I wish they would have stated any flaws or unfinished parts of the suit.
It was not worth the amount of money I payed them,even though the suit itself is wearable and looks presentable.
The language barrier was hard,and they often blew things off and seemed careless for the lack of quality they put into their work.
The felt in the tail was just shoved in,sloppy,a leftover bit.
I’m going to have to fix a lot of the suit by myself.
