TERMS OF SERVICE
You must be 18+ to commission us in order to prevent any issues with parents or tutor. We can ask for an ID if we think it may be necessary, with the ID number covered if you prefer. If you are not 18, your tutor or legal guide must do the purchase for you.
We will only work at original characters, we do not work on characters from Anime/Manga/Cartoons/Videogames/Movies. We have our style, so we can not copy another artist’s work.
We negotiate and discuss your commission details with you and we’ll make an accurate quote of your fursuit. We need to know all details to add to your suit, included if you prefer a determinate base expression, or if you want to add something extra.
Only after that, you must fill our confirmation form. We need that form filled to know all your private informations (Real name, address,email,phone number, and your fursona informations too.)
You must have a detailed reference sheet. If you don’t have one, we can make it for you for an extra payment.
Before starting your commission we show you which fur we chose for the realisation of your suit. Keepin mind that it’s not always possible find the exact fur color of your reference (see Color/Fabric Matching).
We provide Work in Progress (WIPs) photos during the construction process. Some WIPs represent construction milestones. We require these Milestone WIPs to be approved by you before proceeding.
These include, but are not limited to: images of fur/fabric swatches, the head carve before it is furred, and images of the completed fursuit.
Edits during the Construction Process
We work from your reference images and detailed invoice to create your commission. If you see WIPs we send and want tweaks or small adjustments along the way, we will accommodate, within reason.
If you want to change something on the character design, you can comunicate it to us before we start to work on your suit. We have to charge if you want to do It after we already started the commission. We will let you decide if you want to pay for the adjustment, or if we should proceed as-is.
We only accept payment through Paypal and bank transfers, in euro (€) value. When you send the payment you must always consider that.
Those who wish to pay with Paypal, I ask that the fee is covered.
Customers can opt to do a Payment Plan, with a minimum of 3 payments to a maximum of 6 payments. We can discuss to make longer payment plans if you need.
We will not accept any confirmation through vocal messages, calls or everything that is not written.
We require you to be able to put down 1/3rd of the total cost of your commission to begin with. After that, you can make monthly instalments until it's paid off. We recommend paying in installments of at least €200/300 a month.

If the last payment os not done in that time, we will cancel everything and you will not be refounded.
Please be aware that there is a limited color palette available for fabrics (fur, fleece, minky cuddle, faux leather) compared to the limitless possibilities that can be depicted in reference art. We try our best to match colors as best we can, but there will be some times when there is not a color close to a color in your reference. We will provide you with the closest color samples we have access to for you to choose from.
We only use HQ materials for our suit to give to your suit the best results. We DON’T accept fur already bought from you or others. If you need a particular color from a seller you know, we can buy it from them, but this is not always possible.( This could charge more the total price)

Packages are shipped with Italy postal services. International shippings are more expensive then italian’s. Price depends to the weight of the package and measurements.
