Wear Satisfaction

I am super sattisfied with the quality of the product. Sketch came perfect in size, to the milimeter.
The head is super comfy to wear, it doesent wobble around when i shake my head and at the same time doesen’t press on my head. It feels like having soft pillows all around your head, honestly one of the best feelings i’ve felt in a while!

The ventilation is absolutely god-tier. I haven’t worn him in longer periods of time than 2,5 hours at a time, but even with that long in a heated, crowded building, I didn’t overheat even a bit, I dare say I barely even felt him on me! A solid 10/10 on this department

The blind spot is a bit big but it doesen’t bother me, as I have terrible eyesight and need to look thru the left eye to see people properly anyways. Overall the head has amazing vision, i can safely go up and down stairs and navigate thru crowds on my own, no handler needed!

Hearing is also a big thing, i realise a lot of suiters are close to deaf, it’s not a problem with Sketch at all, i can hear everything clearly!

Both handpaws and the head came fully lined on the inside, and it just made them even more comfy to wear – no scratchy padding annoying my skin!

Visual Satisfaction

I absolutely how this grumpy boy looks and feels
The design is replicated 1:1, the shapes are well polished and refined, his ears are my absolute favourite honestly!
The fur is shaved evenly and feels super soft, brushes super easily and doesen’t fall out even when accidentally tugged.
The eyes are static and it’s hard to change expressions with such a grump, but I manage to do a “forced happy” mood with him most of the time, it isn’t a problem at all for me.

Special Attachments and Features

Pickable nose.
watching people’s reactions when a finger or pencil goes straight thru is priceless.

Free space to have my glasses on while in-suit. it aids a lot with my bad vision (and with his perfect ventilation the glasses don’t fog up!)

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

While the first few times I struggled with putting the handpaws on (first fursuit problems), after I got some practice they basically became my second hands, they are perfect size and don’t fall off on their own.
I have trouble picking up smaller objects, but who doesen’t in-suit?
Super comfortable and soft on the inside, hard claws make for good shoulder tapping!

Both handpaws and the head came fully lined on the inside, and it just made them even more comfy to wear – no scratchy padding annoying my skin!

Visual Satisfaction

I have no problem telling the paws apart (left, right), they are 5 fingered so it’s super easy to manage expressions with them.
Basically everything I wrote earlier
even shave, natural-seeming transition between colors, the fur is super soft to the touch and easily brushable.
Once again they match the concept art that came with the character!


Wear Satisfaction

ooooooo the tail
i absolutely love it
probably my favourite part to wear around!
It’s super comfortable, you can feel the sattisfying dangle when you walk, it moves perfectly for dancing and allows a quick put-on with straps to attach to a belt, which is no biggy.
It’s a perfect fit for my height (me and the maker are the same height), it wobbles around just above the ground so it doesent get dirty, unless i’m walking down stairs, but even then i just hold it up.
It’s amazingly compact, I found that even with the immense l e n g h t i can manage to put it easily in my backpack if i decide to take it to a meet or a small con, without the rest of the suit and luggage!
the first day when i got the suit, I wore the tail itself for like 4 hours just hopping left and right, also had it out in the city a few times. Children love it and I feel very comfortable and confident with it on! (as stupid as it sounds)

Visual Satisfaction

Dangly brush of awesomeness, same as above – even shave, natural-seeming transition between colors, the fur is super soft to the touch and easily brushable.


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Everything fits together perfectly, matched with a red flannel, i can go out and slay that edgy look.
Couldn’t be happier with the results!

Overall Project Quality
it was definetly my best investment of the past few years, I couldn’t be happier with the quality and perfection I got for the price!
He is super sturdy and I feel like he could last an eternity without issues or fixes needed!

Purchase Process

Initial Contact
We contacted thru facebook messenger and it really wasn’t hard at all to get a hang of them!

Maker Response Time
They responded in the matter of hours if not minutes!

Maker Professionalism
We started off on a friendly manner but they were professional when it came to the actual suit progress/updates and when the situation demanded it. Thru the good contact we became really good friends!

Project Completion Time
it took less than a month to make all the fixes and deliver Sketch to me. They fit in the set deadline and I could go out to a con the very next week!
