Hey there! This is Cypress responding to this review.
This was our 21st fursuit and 1st hoofed critter, and I’ll be sure to use this information to learn and grow as a maker!
We are closed for fursuit commissions until our queue is 100% complete and we are committed to having short turnaround times when we do open again. We appreciate our current clients patience and communication will remain open always for anyone to reach out at any time.
It’s also worth noting that while this was an art liberty commission, all patterns for shapes and fur placement were pre-approved before building via multiple wips throughout the process. In the end we want our clients to really love what we build regardless if it’s art liberty or not, so if you would like to request changes, don’t hesitate to speak up during the patterning process! We always encourage feedback during the wip stage and will make changes as needed.
While not mentioned here, this suit has an excellent moving jaw and I want to mention it myself because it works very well and I’m very proud of it!
Here’s a link to the moving jaw being utilized by the client:
I have reached out to the client about the vision to see what exactly about the suit is impacting the vision so I can learn for next time. I don’t remember there being any significant issues with the suits vision, all my previous clients have told me the vision is superior, and I want to learn from this experience. My best guess is, the vision on this suit is reduced due to the large snout, and velcro eyelids. Naturally any suit with eyelids will have the vision reduced when wearing them, and LEDs will reduce vision further.
The SPH has two zipper toggles so the hole size can be adjusted, and regrettably one must have popped off, however a small paperclip can be easily added in replacement of the toggle. I will mention this to the client so they can easily remedy it and won’t have to struggle with it.
Some freebies were gifted with this suit as well to surprise the client, that were not mentioned here: a jingle bell harness and collar, and a fursuit spray with custom artwork of the character ($400usd total value). A gift to them because we are friends and I wanted to see this critter with a harness for holiday events.
Here’s a link to a video of the suit being modelled by the client, with a 360 degree turnaround:
I promise I will use everything in this review to learn, grow and apply to our future commissions!
