Overall

Initial ContactEasy.


Maker CommunicationIt was difficult to find the right cathegory about friend-status, but Ritz has been very professional, and have been well comunicating through the process. We are perhaps not friends, but it certainly doesnt mean that there are any issues, just not friends at a personal level. Ritz seems to be a very nice person with good values. She sent updates along the way, and when I had a question she always responded quite quick. She also saved me a lot of money with the transport, due the corona-issues at that time being, finding a safe trackable option that didnt cost ridicously much (as the normal option did then)

Project Completion TimeExcellent, as expected and Ritz are very efficient.


Overall Project QualityI heard many stories about makers that takes your money, and have years of waitingtime (if ever delivered) and was very concerned when I was looking for a maker. Ritz have a principle of not taking to many projects at once, and I felt ok about everything in the process. The suit seems to have good quality, and it felt like Ritz cares personally about her projects.


Components


Head

Wear SatisfactionThe head are very comfortable and not heavy- I ordered the head with a fan that also helps the airflow.


Visual SatisfactionExcellent. The ears are wonderful, also the fur in the ears. Cute teeths, and the happy cute look i wanted.


One-Piece Body

Wear SatisfactionThe bodysuit fits good, but it took some time to get used to pass the legs the padding, but that is of course something I just need to get used to.

The armlength was slightly short, but that might be my mistake with the markings of the DTD. I think it can be fixed without much problems, perhaps extending the glowes a bit. It also might be an issue since I havent used long sleeved clothes under, and then the suit might "grab" more to my arms.


Visual SatisfactionVery good. Could have been slightly tighter, but its good to be on the safe side XD

Very nice fur, and nice markings. The stitching seems very solid so far. The fur is nice, but also makes the suit quite warm, so I have ordered some cooling options 🙂



Hands

Wear SatisfactionThe hands fits very good, and are comforable.


Visual SatisfactionExcellent


Tail

Wear SatisfactionThe tail is very easy to wear, and the size is also a good match. Next time I would have ordered slightly bigger or fluffy, but that is a matter of taste


Visual SatisfactionExcellent! And nice gradient spraypaintwork. Perhaps a bit more swing/soft tail would be even better, but I dont know how that would turn out in real life (also if it is possible etc)


Feet

Wear SatisfactionThe feets are one-size, but it fits ok. Sometimes I am a bit worried that it might be worn faster because of that, but so far so good. Both indoor and outdoor feets. The outdoor have anti-slip flat rubberish underside.


Visual SatisfactionExcellent


Special FeaturesNote (Music) markings on front and back sides. Excellently done.
