Very comfortable! Visual Satisfaction I am very happy with how the hood looks. Originally she did a different design for the face but I didn’t like it, so I had her change the eyes to be happier, and to remove the snout dots. She did this edit for me without any problems and I am so happy she did! Special Attachments and Features The ears on the hood flop really cutely! Body Wear Satisfaction The body of the kigurumi fits me well, and it’s super roomy and loose. But this is my personal preference and it allows for better movement! The sleeves and legs have elastic cuffs on the end, and I LOVE the fact my kigu has pockets! Which makes kiguing at cons a lot easier since I can put my card key, wallet, and phone in my kigu. The kigu does heat up after a while of wear but that’s to be expected. The face is embroidered, and the wings and tail are sewn to the body. Visual Satisfaction I love my kigurumi! Everything is spot on and correct, everything is symetrical! It’s super soft, made out of anti-pill fleece, and looks great, I really love the hood more than anything. Special Attachments and Features My kigurumi has a tail attached and wings. I like the wings, but they are too big and floppy for my personal tastes, I would have preferred smaller, chibi wings, but that is my fault for not telling her I wanted chibi wings. Tails Wear Satisfaction The tail is sewn to the body and stuffed. It waggles when I walk in my kigu! It’s firmly sewn on. Visual Satisfaction Everything is perfect! Special Attachments and Features Very satisfied with the tail! Wings Wear Satisfaction As I mentioned before, I’m not completely happy with the wings since they’re big and floppy, and sag a lot, and I would have preferred small chibi wings, but again, that is my fault for not telling her. Visual Satisfaction Other than the wings being too big for my personal tastes, I really love the way they look! She went all out on the detailing. Special Attachments and Features Very satisified with the quality. Overall Product Satisfaction How was your concept art realized? How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art? Extremely satisifed! How well does everything fit together and match up? How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up? Extremely satisifed! Overall Project Quality How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project? Extremely! Everything is so well-made, and just, guh, absolutely perfect. Purchase Process Initial Contact She emailed me saying I was chosen for a slot some time after I applied. So she was very prompt on contacting me! Maker Response Time How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker? Not very satisifed, sometimes it’d take a week or two for a response. Maker Professionalism How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker? Very satisified! She was very friendly and accomodating during the whole duration of my commission. Project Completion Time How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
