I'm starting to save for mine now, I currently have $40 out of like $2000+. I'm staring to look for a job so I can really start saving. I'm going to commission Dont Hug Cacti or the Mischeif Makers (still deciding) when I'm 18

Also what are some of you guys favourite makers?
I love DHC, the Mischief Makers, and Phoenix Wolf Suits

I would say stay away from DHC, their quality isn't really that great, and their service is really poor.
I would say Phoenix Wolf and Made Fur You are good "Professional" makers.
But try and also look for some smaller makers around fA! They're usually cheaper as well!

Shouldn't be too long now until an Akio fursuit exists. I'm making good money. I think I'll commission Phoenix Wolf, has anybody heard anything about their suit quality?
Feel free to PM me or message me on Skype. I like to talk, and as long as I'm not busy I'm happy to chat anytime :lol-fox:
(But I'm kind of awkward so you'll have to message me first)

As far as I know their pretty good quality, you can look at fursuitcritique on FA. They have four reviews for PWS.

PWS is one of my fav suit makers, would love to get a suit from them. But my current goal is MoreFurLess, I'm saving slowly but surely^^

I haven't heard anything bad about them, and looking at how telephone dances with the head managing to hold its shape without anything falling off,,it looks like they're pretty durable.

I haven't heard anything bad about their quality. Telephone has been around for a while and her suit still looks good. As SnowYuki said you can look at the fursuit critique page on fa, the only problem is that there's only have a small sampling of the people who own their suits and a lot of the time its only the people who had a bad experience or really really good one that review. So don't be afraid to ask some furs who have their suits how their experience was and how their suit has held up.

That's what I've done with a few people who own DHC because I love their suits but everyone always says bad things about them. From the people I've asked they have all had a great to fairly good experience an there suits have held up great. I am personally willing to deal with their customer service as long as the suits are ok. I know they have that "same face" thing but so do a few other makers but no ones critiquing them? DHC can make other faces than their standard face if you ask but most people want that face because its adorable and their style. I'm not going to commission someone else when I want the cute expression of DHC suits. Personality I really love the "DHC face" and still want to commission them when I'm older.

have to go with xan here. i've been making fursuits for a lil while and i'm friends with a whole lotta makers (kinkslinks, phoenixwolf, pseudocanid, etc)
i've not met one maker who recommends them. the quality of the suits are always terrible (paper-based eyes!!!), they're uncomfortable to wear (often made with the wrong measurements), and the maker is extremely rude to customers.
most of their nice suits were made for friends or themselves. :x

Just do your research(well it looks like you have been), and it sounds like you have a couple(few, what ever) years so they might get better when your able to commission them and to be honest I don't mind the "same face" either since I think its just the style of the suits. Which are cute, I've also heard that the quality of the more recent suits have been better, but I'm not exactly sure since I never talked to anybody who owns a more recent DHC suit.

I was talking to Ruby Canine, he got his suit from them earlier this year and had a great experience and his suit fit great and he hasn't had an quality issues yet. I find a lot of people base their views of DHC around those few reviews that where negative, but DHC has made hundreds of suits and most of them have turned out great, there's no excusses for the bad ones but overall they are pretty good. I've heard of a few other makers that had a crap suit or two but people dot go around telling people to not commission them. I've done quite a bit of research at this point in time and feel confident that DHC will make a great Solstice suit if I decide to commission them, I'll just have to wait and see if they are still good in a couple years

I can highly recommend Scout's Fur Accessories, his prices are very reasonable and he does awesome custom orders. Plus he's a younger artist and I personally like supporting younger artists.

First Fursuit
« Reply #419 on: October 12, 2014, 02:22:44 pm »
So I'm getting my first fursuit in time for halloween which will be my first time fursuiting. I have noticed that I'm about the same height as my 18 year old brother, taller then my mom, the same height as my dad, and a little taller then my step dad. So yeah I'm pretty sure getting a fursuit 2 months before I turn 15 should be fine. Also along with this I will be going to Anthrocon 2015 with a few of my friends which will be awesome, and I may be going to MFF since its like a 2 hour drive from me.

Anyways, I was wondering how many of you guys either have fursuits or are getting one and when you got it.
