Spitz Bat Fursuit Paws

Name of Artist: Stuffed Panda Studios
Character/species commissioned (link to photo/concept art): Items commissioned were a pair of pink bat paws for my bat partial Spitz. There was no concept art, just the color description (With a link to the DF fur that was needed) and a description, which was a pair of paws with bat wings attached under the forearm. The old paws were used as a reference for the pawpads, however: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5760348/

Is the item old or new (if old, how long have you had it/when was it made?) These were made brand new!
--Grade each below aspect on a scale of 1 (worst) to 5 (best)--
Visual Aspect (does it match the concept art? Is it consistent with other
items the maker has produced? Is it visually pleasing overall?): 5/5
These matched perfectly to what I imagined as new paws for Spitz. My favorite is the swirl design on her pawpads. I get a lot of comments on those because of how unique they are! I honestly didn't expect her to keep those from the old paws, I expected regular green pawpads. I was very happy when I saw those.
Service Aspect (Deadlines. Communication. Little extras.):  5/5
There was no set deadline for these to be done. They were a casual commission that I wanted to go along with my side project of re-modeling the fursuit overall. But the completion was very speedy. The quote was initially put in for the paws about May or June-ish, and the paws were completed by early August.  Which to me, is very speedy work. I was very pleased and surprised how quickly they were finished.

She kept in communication with me very well. Keeping me well-informed on the progress of the paws, and always double-checking on what I wanted.

Workmanship Aspect (Is the sewing neat? Are things
that should be sewn glued or vise versa? Does it fit? Has anything
fallen off yet that shouldn’t have): 5/5
The sewing was very neat and secure. You can hardly tell where any seams are. The white claws are attached tightly and very well, and so far have not even loosened or damaged at all, despite my affinity for clacking them on surfaces xD

My only complaint is how easy the wings themselves will get folded and wrinkle. It isn't any fault of the maker's, it's just the material that they are made from. Nothing a quick trip on the ironing board can't fix!
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments:

The maker was very friendly and flexible throughout the entire process. They graciously allowed a payment plan (with a down payment of course), and was very lenient about how much I could afford to pay her a week before payment was made in full.

Communication was excellent. They kept in contact with me throughout the progress of the batpaws, including verifying the color fur that I wanted, and giving me an accurate deadline as to when she'd be finished (which she was finished way before that time).
Final Grade (out of 5): 5/5
I was very happy working with this maker. They were friendly, flexible, their prices are very reasonable and overall it was a pleasure doing business with them. I hope to commission many more things from the Stuffed panda sometime soon!
