Character Concept Art Photos of Completed Product Head Wear Satisfaction Head is incredibly comfortable. Has a zip at the back so its easy to take on and off and once it is zipped on he is incredibly snug, but not tight. The ventilation is spectacular, thanks to his big wide grin, and his moving jaw is lovely and reactive. The only minor issue with comfort is occasionally I can feel the battery back of his LEDs against my neck, but I do really have to tilt my head back for it to be annoying. Visual Satisfaction Exactly like I wanted it. He looks so handsome and sneaky, his expression and big toothy grin are exactly how I pictured him. He’s perfectly symmetrical and his shaving is amazing, no bald patches or stray glue anywhere. Fur was chosen by myself to fit an already existing bodysuit so no complaints there. Bass also drew his reference sheet so they match up exactly. Special Attachments and Features His moving jaw, while being on a foam base is spectacular, and his LEDs in his eyes are amazing. Unfortunately due to general wear part of the wire inside the battery pack has come loose so now they tend to flicker on and off when turned on, but Bass has offered to fix these for me so again, no complaints 🙂 Hands and Feet Wear Satisfaction Hands are exactly what I wanted, huge chunky bappers with big claws. For such a meaty pair of paws they are suprising dextrous, everyone whose worn them has been impressed at just how easy I can grab things with them. Lined as well, really easy and comfy to put on. My only nag with them is the cuffs are lined with red fleece, and his arms/paws are black, so if the cuff pulls back it can be noticed in some photos from certian angles, but this is a very minor gripe. They have held up very well, and I am a very active suiter yet they have been able to withstand all the punishment I have put them through, so super impressed. Visual Satisfaction Perfect! Shaving is neat and clean, fur is soft and the claws are nice and robust. Pawpads are a lovely cream colour, match his ref exactly. Overall Product Satisfaction How was your concept art realized? Bass had already done me a reference sheet that I commissioned before I went to her for a suit so her art style matches the suit perfectly. How well does everything fit together and match up? He looks incredible. He is a real head turner and I’ve had nothing but compliments about him. Matches his existing bodysuit incredibly well, colours all match perfectly. Overall Project Quality Very. He is incredibly high quality, gorgeous to look at and wear, he’s filled with so much character Purchase Process Initial Contact Very easy! We had been friends for a while so I was able to message her about having a head and paws done Maker Response Time Very good, I got concept sketchs of how the head would look so I could choose a style, and regular WIPs Maker Professionalism Very happy Project Completion Time Very! I wanted him done for CFz2019 and he was ready to debut at the con. Rating FursuitReview rates by asking the question: Would you recommend this maker?
