Would like to know why my message about noblewolf is being rejected? That's pretty much it. I think other people should be warned as most people that get his suits don't fit and either need to be sent back to him (which wastes time) or to have someone else fix it (which in his little mind violates his toc)

So i'd like to know why? If you want to see a full account of what happened.. well here you go.

I gave Noblewolf a laptop (ibook) and a ipod (2gb nano) in exchange for two suits. When my mate got his suit.. neither the head or the body suit fit. I got my suit a few weeks later and the same dilema came up. I took both suits to blackfire seeing as we were at Further Confusion and we would like to wear them.. at this con?

He fixed them and I guess that pissed noblewolf off as no one likes to be told that their work is not perfect.

Now a small hole has developed in the underlayer of the suit.. and you know what? I'll pay for someone else to fix that too.. I don't care. I approached him first basically asking if anything would be done and he said that the suit was past 1 year old.

Um.. other fursuit builders.. like blackfire.. give a 1 year warranty with the unit. What.. your warranty is a few months and after that i'm screwed?

Fine. Go ahead. But the thing that makes me the angriest about this.. is that he bascially implied I have had fursuit sex in this suit.

I have said it before and i'll say it again. My suit is not built for that. period. And if he wants to go ahead and market suits for that.. more power to him. I have worn my suit 3 occassions, FC2006, halloween last year and FC2007. To have ANY type of damage in the suit with non strenous activity implies one thing.

Shoddy workmanship.

That's all i have to say about this matter.. other than there are other fursuit builders out there that'll stand by their work. I am sorry to say that noble is not one of them

I've heard a fair share of bad press about *both* of those people, actually, but in all fairness--

Fursuiters can make mistakes or miscalculations just like artists. Did you contact Noble to let him know the suits didn't fit to give him a chance to fix them before you handed them to someone else? Sometimes corrections DO need to be made, and while I understand if you were in a rush and wanted to wear them right then, and the mistakes -are- his fault, if so you were the one who made the choice not to wait and made the choice to go to someone else.

Honestly, I don't know if I would feel 100% confident about doing free repairs if some third party'd worked on it. I'd definitely -try-, but I have no way of knowing how experienced the person that repaired it is or how different their way of working is from mine, or if -they- dicked something up by accident in the process.

Are you saying he refused to do anything at -all- after a year, or just refused to do anything for free? I mean -- a "small hole in the underlayer" hardly sounds like that big a deal to me. After three cons of goofing around and a year, I've had to do maintenance like that on several of my heads and suits, and I don't think that "implies one thing" at all. If it was me, I'd probably still fix it, sure, but if he wants to say it's over a year old that's -- his rules.

This sounds more like bad blood, bad communication and two people that just don't get along than something that shitty.. Otherwise, you need to be a little more descriptive of exactly what happened?

Again, as stated above. The agreement was to get these suits and for them to FIT at Further Confusion. We got them days before (I got savannah the night before the con). So that's that.

He refused to do any repairs at all.. saying if it was over a few months he'd fix it for free.. but then again I would have offered to pay for it and now I don't have to. I have suiters in the area that are more than willing to help now.

Basically I have heard horror stories from other furs about him as well adn you know what? I am done. There are other fursuit builders out there and i'd rather deal with someone that's going to be a bit more rational in their responses than someone that just says "No, you're out of luck."

And something else.. i noticed my fursuit fur is thinner than my mate's suit.. which has thicker fur. coincidence? I kinda doubt it.
