Overall

Initial ContactVery easy! They posted on twitter and I filled out a google form. They got back to me in less than 24hrs.

They sent a DTD tutorial and specific measurements for the hand and feetpaws.


Maker CommunicationCommunication was quick and to the point, but also pleasant and upbeat so I always looked forward to hearing from them!

Project Completion TimeTechnically the ETA was passed, but I got my partial in ~2 months which is SUPER fast! They had to remake the head due to shaver issues so honestly the speed is amazing.

Shipping was super quick and the box was decorated! It came with little stickers and merch and a bandana!


Overall Project QualityI am very happy! The product is super cute and exactly what I thought it would be. The maker worked very hard and super quickly. The parts are well constructed and easy to put on/take off. I haven't had any issues with the construction so far!

If I had to be picky, I think the feetpaws could be a little sturdier. I'm going to do a little work to make them more usable for cons and other long-term wear. I don't have enough experience to know if this is a personal preference of mine or an actual construction issue!



Components


Head

Wear SatisfactionThe head fits very well! Vision is great! It's super comfy and clearly built to my head measurements.

This maker's style has a "flat" back to the head, so your head fills out the back of it. This makes the head easier to store and lighter overall. I like it!


Visual SatisfactionThe head looks great! The maker had to make it twice because the shaver messed up part of the cheek, and it matches the ref really well. I'm very happy with how it looks!

The shaving is extremely even throughout the head. After brushing the longer fur looks and feels super silky.

The facial expression is one of the reasons I commissioned this maker! I love the happy look!



Hands

Wear SatisfactionThe hands fit me well! The fur is great and they match the design and my request (no claws) exactly.

I am going to add elastic to the wrists so I feel more confident using the hands (so I'm not worried they'll fall off).


Visual SatisfactionThe hands look great! Once I brush them they match the design of the ref perfectly, and line up really well with the material on the head/feet/tail.


Tail

Wear SatisfactionThe tail comes with a belt loop so I can wear it with or without my bodysuit (made by another maker). It bounces and wags with my movements!

The fur is silky and very soft. It has padding and resembles the reference art exactly!


Visual SatisfactionIt looks great! The pattern is difficult (merle) and they pulled it off very well.


Feet

Wear SatisfactionThe feet are slipper style, with foam on the inside and fur on the outside. They're a little loose but I'm going to add elastic to the ankles to take care of that.

I didn't see examples of the maker's feetpaws before I commissioned so I'm stoked they look so good!


Visual SatisfactionThe feet look great! They match the ref and the fur is shaved very well.
