Reviewer Information Reviewer Furaffinity: blackminorscales Relationship With Maker The maker is NOT a friend Prior Experience Not much Informed Maker of Issues Yes Wear Time 50+ hours (Every weekend since obtained) Maker & Project Information Maker jjreamBig Commission Information Type: Fursuit > Fullsuit Style: Toony, Digitigrade Shipped From: Unknown Species dragon Found in Reptilia (?) Made in Year 2016 or earlier Transaction Information 1000 USD Filed under $1000 - $2999 as a None. Estimated Completion Time (ETA) Accuracy NO - MULTIPLE ETAs were passed Date of Review 30 March 2016 Project Timeline Contact Date April 2015 Completion/Ship Date January 2016 Item Completion Time (?) 7 - 12 Months Head Wear Satisfaction Fits perfectly and is very comfortable. Breathes decently well. Vision is astounding. Small blind spot in the center, to be expected with a dragon. Visual Satisfaction Very well constructed, and shaven very well. Fur is very good quality and is very soft. Very cute expression, and matched the concept art pretty accurately. Eyes are a bit too far in, in my opinion. Hard to photograph because of that, and makes a full front-on profile look a bit crosseyed. Body Wear Satisfaction Body fits extremely well. Easy to get on and off while not being baggy or tight. Very durable and very high quality. Looks and feels amazing both being in the suit and from the outside. Being a very active suiter, I haven’t had a major popped seam at all. The front under the red scutes is lined and very comfortable. The minky scutes also make the suit extremely breathable and cool despite the thick black fur (which was requested). Only con is how low cut the neck is. Barely fits on a hanger, and a scarf or bandana is required, else the undershirt shows by a good 2 or 3 inches. Visual Satisfaction Suit is very symmetrical. Everything looks and feels right. Shaving is even and the transitions are excellently done as to my specifications. Colors are spot on and were discussed in detail before the maker bought the fur. Special Attachments and Features Padding was included, and sewn onto a pair of spandex. It’s expertly shapped and doesn’t look unnatural at all when wearing it. Hands and Feet Wear Satisfaction Hands are mishapen and floppy. Feet are comfortable and soft, but don’t provide much support. Both are pretty low cut, and the gaps are apparent when wearing the full suit. As with the whole suit, they are very durable, but the usability is limited. Both are comfortable to wear but leave a bit to be desired. Visual Satisfaction The feet look very nice as long the gap isn’t showing. The padding in the shins helps give it a good flow, and it looks like a very realistic digitigrade. The hands, because they’re misshapen, look a bit floppy, and the material used on the top of them is not the same as was used on the body suit. The color matches well but the texture is noticeably different. Special Attachments and Features The front facing zipper is hidden perfectly by the thick fur, running up the side between the scutes and the black fur. This allows me to get in the suit with no additional help from anyone. Because of it’s durability, getting in the suit takes no time at all since I don’t have to be extremely cautious when slipping into it. Tails Wear Satisfaction The tail is sewn onto the body suit. Originally I wasn’t sure of this, but because of the way it was done, I couldn’t imagine it any differently. There is a seperate piece of padding that makes of the meat of the tail which is removable, and a small zipper on the bottom of the tail near the tip that allow it to be inserted and pulled out. This makes washing the suit much easier, and the overall look flows much better than a separate tail. Visual Satisfaction The tail is huge, and the curvature is very natural. 0 complaints. Wings Wear Satisfaction I requested smaller, plush wings, that were sewn directly to the suit, which came out fantastic. They’re very floppy and cute, and also very durable. Visual Satisfaction The symmetry is perfect. However, they’re a bit too floppy and succumb to gravity a bit too easily. It was never specified by me to keep them propped up, so I can’t force judgement there. Overall Product Satisfaction How was your concept art realized? How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art? Extremely satisfied. The suit pretty much perfectly matches the character I created 8 years ago. It’s like a dream come true. How well does everything fit together and match up? How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up? 8/10. With how detailed the suit is, I’m extremely impressed with this new maker on how everything turned out. The colors and the attention to detail are perfect. The only gripe is the low cut neck, hands, and feet. All which should be easily fixable. Overall Project Quality How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project? Extremely satisfied. For this suit maker’s first commissioner, I was astounded by the overall quality of the suit. Purchase Process Initial Contact The quote was very easy to obtain. If I recall, she got back to me the same day I sent the note on FA. Maker Response Time The response time was not the best. It could take upwards of 1-2 weeks for any sort of response, and even then, the updates didn’t come in very quickly. Many “I’ll have pictures” tonight went unfulfilled for very, very long periods of time. Maker Professionalism The maker is extremely friendly and outgoing. The attention to detail was astounding. The updates (whenever she got around to giving them) were informative and helpful. The maker is still in college and doing the suit making in her spare time, so it’s understandable that she can’t be at my beck and call whenever I want an update or anything. However, some more communication would have been nice, and having realistic deadlines would have saved me from a lot of disappointment of going to cons suitless when I got so hyped up for having it. Project Completion Time The deadlines were the makers Achilles heel. There were a ridiculous amount of deadlines that were missed. Originally the ETA was supposed to be 8 weeks (which I definitely saw I overly optimistic). That was missed, but that wasn’t a big deal. But for at least 2 cons, the deadline was completely missed, leading to a lot of disappointment. The perfectionist nature of the maker shows in the amazing quality of the suit, but the reality of meeting the deadlines set by the maker left a lot to be desired.

Final Comments Pros: Excellent quality suit, in looks and durability and overall quality. Admittedly decent turn around of about 9 months Very friendly and helpful attitude, willingness to fix any problems I had with the suit provided I ship it back within a year. —- Cons: Hard to get an update Some oversights on the suit, like how far cut the hands, paws, and neck should be to make sure that there is enough overlap without any gap showing. Countless missed deadline, even shipping out extra materials to fix some of the minor flaws in the suit has taken over 3 months. Are you the maker of this item?
