Character Concept Art

Head

Wear Satisfaction

The head fits snug since the measurements I gave the maker at the time were for smaller glasses, but now since I wear slightly wider glasses, the measurements have changed a little, but I am able to wear her properly with no issues. The ventilation is good. I do have limited vision in her, but I am still able to see what I am doing with blind spots mostly on the sides and in the middle where the nose is. As long as I turn my head, I can see mostly around me.



Visual Satisfaction

The outside of the costume looks flawless. I am very impressed on how he did the facial expression, the eyes and the hair! Also the whiskers being bendable adds more to the expression! The shaving is very clean and even with the face being very symmetric. The fur feels high quality and I’m in love with it! The main fur color is slightly outdated to the original color of fursona, but I didn’t have a good reference he could go by at that time so the color is very accurate to the reference sheet I provided.

Body

Wear Satisfaction

The body suit fits excellent and is very comfortable to wear. Since the body is a drop crotch, there is a lot of room to put pillows in, which I only needed two regular sized (one for each leg) to have the body give of the digitigrade effect. The pillows are held in place between my body and the fabric and doesn’t move at all while I’m walking or waddling around. Thr waddling does give more personality to the costume.



Visual Satisfaction

I am very satisfied on how the body looks and very closely resembles my reference I provided. He was very spot on with the concept I gave him! There was no shaving needed for the body since I wanted her to be very fluffy, but the markings on the arms are symmetrical to each other. Also both of fur used for the arms and body felt high quality and consistent.

Special Attachments and Features

There is a hidden loop sewn on the back to uphold the long tail in case I want the tail to be down or held up on my back.

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

The maker did inform me that someone he used to work with made the hands and feet, so I won’t be critiquing this much since he no longer has any involvement with them and I want them to remain anonymous. Otherwise, the hands fit me perfectly, but I do have to push up my arm sleeves when wearing the hands since the person who made the hands made the wrist length too long. Otherwise they feel and look great and fit me. Also both the hands are feet are puffy so they are very comfortable. The maker did make the fursuit shoes which I did test off camera and they fit good over the feet paws with no issues.



Visual Satisfaction

The hands and feet look great and thr shaving is even on thr inner paws. The paw pads on both the hands and feet match my reference I provided and the fur quality matches the rest of the costume.

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

The base of the tail is attached to the costume with a hidden loop around the neck of the tail, giving it the ability to sway the tail however I want while it looks like it’s standing upright. The way he put the tail together was flawless and impressive since he admitted that this was his biggest challenge in making the costume. The tail uses the same high quality quality as the rest of the costume and the seams feel very durable.



Visual Satisfaction

I am very hapoy with how the tail came out. There was no shaving to the tail since I requested to not shave it and the tail matches the reference I provided.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How was your concept art realized?
I provided my own art I drew of my fursona to him which he transitioned perfectly into the costume. Everything including the design, expression, and the quality matched up nicely and he went beyond what I was expecting!

How well does everything fit together and match up?
The seams match up perfectly on all parts of the suit and I didn’t find any holes anywhere. The only thing that was baggy was the body, but that’s only because it’s drop crotch to fit pillows in and the body looks amazing with the pillows added in. The tail is not tugging on my back and is flowing freely. Overall, everything fit good on me.

Overall Project Quality
I am very satisfied in how he brought Hamtari to life. The costume feels like it will last a long time and he exceeded my expectations greatly. I feel like I got my money’s worth with how well he made her.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
I made a post to a fursuit maker group on Facebook asking for available commissions and he responded to the initial post about his prices and stayed in contact through Facebook messenger.

Maker Response Time
The maker has a fast response rate and is very consistent with keeping in contact through Facebook messenger.

Maker Professionalism
The maker is very professional. At first, we kept our conversations mostly business related. Then over time, we opened up more about our personal lives and any time of situations we were dealing with at the time in case it caused any delays on getting the costume done and shipped. He gave clear instructions on how to make and send the duct tape dummy as well as getting my head measurements since I wear glasses. He provided updates on the suit making process as well as provided a stream on Facebook and showing tutorials on how to put her on when he finished making her.

Project Completion Time
Other than the pandemic and other life circumstances putting a hold in the shipping process, I am satisfied with the time turnaround on her being completed. Once he shipped her, she arrived at my doorstep about a week later, one day earlier than the tracking stated it would take.
