Photos of Completed Product Head Wear Satisfaction I have been really happy with how the head fits. It’s snug so it doesn’t shift or fall off if I am moving a lot or fast, but not so snug that it hurts my ears or anything. The inside is lined with lycra so it’s really soft and smooth and probably helps keep things cool by wicking away sweat. Cleaning is easy with a small carpet cleaner and the lining doesn’t stain from sweat. The mouth lines up with my nose and mouth so it’s got excellent ventilation and never gets stuffy or really hot unless I am exerting myself physically. Vision is really good considering. The eyes are painting but the mesh holes were poked clean so there are no holes painted over. Center vision has a small blind spot but I can see pretty well in front of me. Peripheral vision is cut in half maybe but still very good. Coincidentally the inside of the eyes has some room for me to fit loose glasses lenses. Visual Satisfaction The shape and symmetry are all very good and nothing looks out of place or lopsided. The fur is all even where is needs to be and is very soft and fluffy still. Easy to brush and wash too. Nothing has gotten matted or tangled or fallen out. The eyes are static but i was given three different magnetic eyelids to change the expressions. I am in love with how my head piece looks it’s very cute and cool looking. Overall Product Satisfaction How well does everything fit together and match up? I can’t see any exposed stitches and the seems on the short fur between different colours or sections are not really noticeable. There is a slight colour difference on part of the head hair, but that was done after the original making. I had that altered later and with my approval about the colour difference. The head has a sort of signature look about it that is consistent with the maker. Overall Project Quality Overall I am very happy with the head and love it very much. It was very worth the price for the great quality and effort put into it. I have not had anything fall apart on me even after cramming it into backpacks to take hiking or traveling. It’s taken some abuse and still looks very nice. I feel it will last a very long time. Purchase Process Initial Contact I found the slot of a head on Etsy while looking for a maker who’s style I liked. I contacted them through the Etsy messaging email and also purchased the slot on Etsy. They were very clear with what they needed from me such as a reference picture and head measurements. Maker Response Time The maker responded to my email the same day. We stayed in contact mostly through Etsy, but did some contact through Telegram if I remember correctly. Maker Professionalism The maker is very professional and clear and friendly when I talked to them. Always treated me respectfully and patient with my response times while I was at work. They gave updates regularly without me asking and gave me updates quickly when I did ask. Project Completion Time It took about seven months from first contact to delivery of the head. I did not have a set deadline but they made it clear about how long it would take and where I was in the queue. Item was shipped very quickly after completion and approval from me. The USPS was used to ship. Rating FursuitReview rates by asking the question: Would you recommend this maker? YES This review has been marked with a positive rating.
