Head

Wear Satisfaction

The head fits very comfortably on my head! Its snug enough to not wiggle around, and loose enough to not feel extremely tight against my face. As far as ventilation goes, it is decent and I’m able to breathe well, but during extended use sessions like at a convention a small, mobile fan does really go a long way to help keep cool. Vision is good and I have been able to navigate places like a con space with little issue on my own.



Visual Satisfaction

The symmetry is excellent. My character has a pair of stars on each cheek and they are perfectly aligned on both sides, as well as my character’s other markings. The shaving on the suit is even and left the right amount of fluffiness in the right places for the character. The fur that was used was very soft and when speaking to others with more experience with suits, I am told that the fur is of very good quality. I am satisfied in my choice for most design appearances of the head, but after owning a suit if I were to choose again, I would like to go with the follow-me eyes instead of the static ones. Regardless of that fact though, I am able to achieve varied and wonderful looking photos from multiple angles.

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

The paws and feet have been insanely comfortable to wear and use and are probably one of the most complimented parts of the suit! I had four digit padded paws made with claw tips added on. While it took some getting used to using the four digits, I find that I can still do a lot of basic things with them. I’ve had no issues with the seams of the paws, and they seem to be holding on very, very strongly. Everyone loves the plush feel of both the hands and feet, and I couldn’t be happier with them.



Visual Satisfaction

The appearance of both the hands and feet are stellar. The colors were excellent, and like mentioned before, the quality of the fur is very good. The final product matches the design of the character perfectly.

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

The tail is another wonderful addition. It’s just the right length, and curled at the right point where it doesn’t drag on the floor. I was most worried about the durability of the tail, but after a very thorough con experience it held up way beyond expectations. There would be times where I would often forget I was even wearing it and managed to continue through my day without any issues.



Visual Satisfaction

The tail is gorgeous, and all the colors chosen were wonderful. The portions used for the three-tones of color on the tail were matching spot on to the reference artwork.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Everything matches up wonderfully. Everything fits just as it should, and the style is just what I was expecting and looking for from the maker.

Overall Project Quality
Yes! I am beyond happy with my project. As someone who has had an interest in owning a suit since around 2009, there were high expectations that I had in my head. I’m very happy to say that even with that, they were blown out of the water, being worth every cent I paid.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
It was incredibly easy! I had found out about open slot openings several weeks prior through Twitter. I filled out a form on the maker’s website and was contacted shortly via email.

Maker Response Time
During every step of the process, the maker was prompt in their communication. All contact keep through a consistent method through the entire process. The maker would usually respond either same or next business day for any questions that I had.

Maker Professionalism
The maker was very professional through the entire process. Being my first commission of it’s kind, I was very nervous about the whole process, but was put at ease with how smoothly and how kind I was treated during the process.

Project Completion Time
The project was completed right on time. The maker was very clear about their timeline and stuck to it. I was kept updated very regularly on progress with photos of various stages of work in progress.

Final Comments
This was a project that I did not take lightly. Since my earliest days in the fandom, I had been wanting to experience living through the eyes of my character and bringing joy to not only myself but those around me. It was a blast getting to work with Ritz to make this into a reality. Enthis was a long time coming. I had been waiting to get a suit for my nearly 12 years in the fandom, and put a lot of thought into it over the years. I have been following Ritz’s artwork for about a decade now, and I never thought that I would commission a project like this from them. I’m happy that I was able to do this, and give a big recommendation to anyone who is considering working with this maker!
