Head

Wear Satisfaction

It’s very comfortable. I told the maker that I needed to wear glasses under it and measured myself accordingly, so they had this in mind when making it – the results were great, as I never felt discomfort while suiting and wearing my glasses.
It doesn’t slide off at all, and the ventilation is great, both through the eyes and the mouth; i’ve never felt even close to overheating, and I’ve worn the suit for very prolonged amounts of time. The vision is great too!
The head has magnetic eyelids, to make him look sad/tired. They’re a bit tricky to place, but once they’re on properly they won’t fall off! They were made with the same fabric used on the rest of the head, so they match the colours perfectly and blend in really well



Visual Satisfaction

It’s really pretty. I looks simple yet adorable at the same time! I especially like his big ears and nose ! The markings are accurate, and there’s no seams in sight. The symmetry is great. The white fur is especially soft. The shaving is even!

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

These puffy paws are so comfortable. I’ve tried many other fursuit handpaws before, and I have to admit that these are the best. They fit very snuggly, so they won’t slide off at all, and they have great mobility. I’ve had to use these while wearing braces on my hands and have had no issues at all fitting them like so. The interior is completely lined with very soft and breathable fabric

He has no feetpaws



Visual Satisfaction

These paws are adorable! The markings on the right paw are perfect, and the resin claws give them a really stylish finish. The shaving is even. The pawpads are embroidered on the outside, which makes them look very professional

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

His tail uses a belt loop to get it on, which makes it very very practical. It has a really nice bounce to it, it’s so comfortable that I usually forget to remove it and end up walking with just a tail on for a while



Visual Satisfaction

Again, the markings are matched perfectly. The longer pile white fur looks really cute. The belt loop can’t be seen when being worn, giving it a really slick look while fursuiting. The shaving is even throughout

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Everything matches perfectly: markings maintain their shape, the colours are consistent, and there are no visible gaps in the suit overall. Everything fits as it should. The suit is consistent with the maker’s other suits

Overall Project Quality
I’m very happy with the product I received! I’ve used it so many times since then, and it hasn’t popped a seam or broken at all. If you want a cute and durable suit in a timely manner, I highly recommend this maker



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Messaged them on Facebook, if I recall correctly, once they opened for quotes. The response was very quick, professional, and kind

Maker Response Time
Very quick, I was never ghosted or left on read

Maker Professionalism
The maker is very professional, and very pleasant to work with. Communicating any concerns to them was very easy and they made sure the end product was according to my vision

Project Completion Time
I don’t remember exactly, but it was between two weeks and a month. Once the product was finished, we arranged for a pick-up date and time and had no issues at all meeting

Final Comments
The maker was lovely throughout, and the end result was exceptional. They’ve improved vastly since I commissioned this from them, so if I had the chance, I would commission them again without a doubt. I highly recommend checking out their website or social media

As of writing this review (28th of january, 2020), however, I’m trying to sell this suit – while I love it, I just don’t have time to use it anymore. Feel free to message me about it, or search for it in The Dealers Den. Some makers can get a bit angry when one of their past commissioners sells/tries to sell their suits, but Koshka has been very supportive and understanding overall, which is very appreciated in the process of letting go of this good boy
