Head

Wear Satisfaction

The head itself is quite snug, and the vision is a bit limited, but the ventilation is rather good. The mouth is large, and there’s a method the maker uses to make the cheeks more breathable as well. (But I’m not sure if I’m allowed to disclose it as it’s part of their personal work method)



Visual Satisfaction

The suit is very visually appealing with very minor imperfections! (One tooth looks a little sharper than the rest) The maker also implemented some of my personal art style choices into the suit to make it be more “my own” adding triangular marks on the snout where you see whiskers!

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

The paws are super comfortable!!! The movement is limited, though that is solely because I chose the option of “bubble paws”.



Visual Satisfaction

Great! There’s a minor error on one of the pawpads where you can tell the sowing machine went over it, but it’s not all too noticeable and isn’t that bad!

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

A little wonky, I have to have it pulled up and high for it to look right! (Although I assume this is normal? Remember this was the first suit I ever received!)



Visual Satisfaction

Oh my god, literally perfect. Super soft and fluffy!!!

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How was your concept art realized?
100% happy with it! At first it looked too realistic for my taste, so they edited what I asked to be changed, to appear more toony. After that I was more than pleased!

How well does everything fit together and match up?
It all looks like it belonged together!!! The character fits their style perfectly and I couldn’t be happier with the maker I chose : )

Overall Project Quality
Super sturdy! Honestly sometimes I wonder if there’s a thing such as “too enforced” because if someone tries to take the suit apart someday for some reason, I wish them luck XD



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Super easy! I contacted them over Instagram DM’s while their shop was open, and they responded rather quickly (and very politely).

Maker Response Time
100% satisfied. I only had one occasion where it took more than one day for them to respond, and that was it! Didn’t mind that wait either. Otherwise they responded within 24 hours with whatever I needed!

Maker Professionalism
No downsides here! They made sure to ask about my personal opinion on features and whatever they were working on. They sent frequent updates, and sometimes even videos. They sent a video with a “durability” test to me before it was ever sent out.

Project Completion Time
I am satisfied! It took roughly 3 months longer than planned, but keep in mind they moved during this period and it was also at the time the pandemic started (and throughout the year it occurred/still is). I’m also positive they had other matters happen in their life that they did not disclose for personal reasons. They made sure to tell me when they thought things would take longer than planned.
