Comfortable to wear, lightweight, easy to brush after use Ventilation not perfect (will see if using a fan helps), but can wear for a few hours no problem Vision is great, barely a blind spot in center, can navigate with suit head on indoors but haven’t tried outdoors yet Moving jaw is responsive Visual Satisfaction Symmetry good, eyes slightly not symmetrical but not noticeable in videos or photos Fur quality is great, even shave Head appearance matches character art exactly Follow me eye effect works well Body Wear Satisfaction Fits my body, comfortable, allows for natural range of movement, lightweight even with digi padding Very durable, can kneel and bend without any tearing Can wear for an hour or so with cooling vest before heat sets in Visual Satisfaction Symmetry is perfect, color and patterns look exactly like the concept art Body suit is very soft and huggable Digi legs look natural Zipper line shows on chest fluff, not a big issue of appearance Hands and Feet Wear Satisfaction Hands and feet comfy, no human skin shows while wearing and stays on during use Durable seams Feet paws have shoes built in, fit well Feet have snaps to attach to body or can separate when partialing Handpaw interior not lined Visual Satisfaction Shaving even and markings accurate to the character Tails Wear Satisfaction Tail much more lightweight than expected when compared to my premade partial (similar shape and size) Very fluffy and fits the character concept well Visual Satisfaction Matched character concept well, good communication when getting the shape and size planned out Wings Wear Satisfaction Lightweight, doesn’t weigh down the body at all when moving around Durable seams, perfect shape and size Visual Satisfaction Matches concept art, very fluffy fur shave makes the wings look feathery and natural Wings attached to body suit Looks great in photos! Overall Product Satisfaction How well does everything fit together and match up? Markings match up great with the overal look! Very seamless appearance, everything flows naturally Has that “Thunderhowl” look but unique enough to be distinguished from other maker’s suits Overall Project Quality Project exceeded my expectations, Nea was made better than I could imagine when I first created her. I would recommend Thunderhowl as a possible maker to consider Purchase Process Initial Contact Very easy, they announced an opening on their social medias with their form, once I got the slot communication was through email or Telegram. They definitely take customer service seriously and willing to walk you through the steps. There was no confusion during the process Maker Response Time Response time was prompt, maybe an hour wait time at most during daytime working hours. Initial slot acceptance was through email, but commission communication took place through their business Telegram Maker Professionalism Very professional, all contact was commission related. They asked necessary questions on anything needing clarity, making sure I was OK before starting something. Lots of WIP pics! They’re local, so I had the chance to test out the head and body suit; these visits were entirely business related and to the point Project Completion Time Completion was less than a year with a public queue available. They promise suits are done within a year of payment at most and they for sure made their deadline with Nea Rating FursuitReview rates by asking the question: Would you recommend this maker?
