Frequently asked questions:
Below are questions I have been asked multiple times and other important ones which I feel are best answered here. Please have a read through before asking anything.
Q - Are you open for commissions?
A - Check my Trello (linked on home page), All my available slots are here, more slots are added as I finish my queue. I also update my Instagram and Twitter bio and pinned Facebook post to say if I'm open or closed.
Q - Do you do payment plans?
A - Yes, on most things from fullsuits and fursuit parts to art! (details in my TOS!)
Q - Where are you based?
A - Wales, UK
Q - How much is shipping to [------] ?
A - Shipping is calculated after commissions are completed as in order to get an accurate quote I need the weight, value and package size!
Q - Will you hold a slot for me?
A - You must pay the non-refundable deposit to secure a slot. But I will accept half of the non-refundable deposit total to secure the slot.
(be sure to check with me first!)
Q - Can I have a quote?
A - Yes I will happily give you a quote, but please help quicken the process and send your refsheet along with what type of commission you are after.
For example.. " I would like a fleece faced head with drybrushing, magnetic eyelids, standard puffy paws with fleece claws and a 20 inch tail"
Q - Can you use [-----]'s headbase/ pattern to make my suit?
A - No, I only use my own bases and templates which I have developed over the years of fursuit making, I much prefer to keep my work, my own. On the rare occassion that I do use a base from another maker, it will be for a premade suit and clearly stated.
Q - Can you make my suit in [-------]'s style?
A - No. if you want a suit in a specific makers style, you should commission them.
Q - Can you refurb my suit?
A - If its a suit previously made by me, then yes! Though I do suggest commissioning a new head or parts if they have worn out/are damaged over years of wear.
General fursuit construction questions:
Q - What are your headbases made from?
A - My headbases are carved from upholstery foam of different densities.
Q - What are your eyes made from?
A - My following eyes are made from 5mm high density EVA foam and Aida cloth.
Q - Do you handsew or machine sew?
A - It depends on which fursuit part I'm working on. I tend to handsew handpaws, feetpaws and most of the fursuit heads, but do handsew parts of bodysuits and tails. The rest I will machine sew and go over handsewn seams to make them stronger in key areas.
Q - Do you line your fursuit heads?
A - Yes, they are lined inside with a stretchy jersey fabric, thin cotton or lycra material
Q - What is the difference between fleece/minky faced heads and standard furred heads?
A - Fleece/minky faced heads look neater in my opinion and require little to no shaving on the heads, they look even better with drybrushing too. Seams are hard to avoid on cheeks and muzzles though.
Furred heads require shaving to tidy up the face (hence the higher cost)
Q - What species will you make?
A - I am happy to make any species, both real life and mythical/hybrids. I have examples of rodents, canines, angel dragons , western dragons a deer and felines and wish to build up my portfolio further.
Q - What is the vision like in your suits?
A - The vision is great with a small blindspot in the middle, the backs of the eyes are painted black to give as much vision as possible.
Q - What is the ventilation like in your suits?
A - Ventilation is good in my suits, the backs of my heads have no foam (unless its required in construction), my following eyes are mostly mesh so give optimum airflow and the mouths give good to great airflow depending on the species ect.
