Noblewolf

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

Yes , not denying the suit was over a year old (barely, Got the suit 1/18/06 and noticed the hole 1/19/07).

Explaining.. again.. for the third time. The agreement was to have this suit and have it fit for FC. It didn't.. so I reserved the right to basically go elsewhere to get it TO fit.

The hole developed because I noticed my mates suit has a thicker fur with a thicker back and mine is thinner.. why is mine thinner? Maybe he figured that he was getting the short end of the stick of this deal and decided to go cheaper on the second suit. Dunno.

Other fursuiters will stand by their work. Hell I know of more than a few fursuiters that would fix that crap for free and a few local suiters that are going to help me with this issue.

What it is, is plain and simple.. I am tired of hearing the stories of people spending a grand and getting screwed over (points up to khmir). Trust me. There are alot of fursuiters out there that vie for business and you might want to steer clear of those that do cheap and shoddy work.

Note: Most fursuiters have warrantees on their stuff- no one's stuff is warranted a year, I can tell you that off the bat. After a year, fixing it becomes your problem, because you're no longer protected by warrantee.
This isn't just for fursuits- its for cars, everything.

Secondly: If you needed a specific colour that only came in one shade and was hard to find, he probobly took what he could find. You probobly got a cotton backed(Thin, stretchy, not too much durability) fur, and your mate(If your mate has a different colour) got a polyester backed(Or double cotton knit). It happens, fur isn't a high demand product.

I'm not advocating either side in this, but the fact that your suit had violated the warantee due to its' age would have put this in a whole new light.
