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

For the record on what i fixed and saw at FC.

now i don't know a lot of the details on this. only that 2 suits were shipped. for a con. both did not fit.. were not even NEAR fitting. blanco asked if noble could fix the one that came a week earlier to fix using express shipping so it be ready. noble refused. he refused right after that con. which the suits were only a coupple months old. that no work would be done. thats all i know.

2 suits that don't fit properly.. should not need almost a YARD of material to fit. I had to use different colors that took me 6 hours to find to match and design to make blanco's suit almost 12 inches wider at chest and upper arms to fit. and make the head fit almost 3 inches around the forhead.. i can see an inch or at most 2 in error. it happens. but no..

i am not putting the work down. no. i am just stating what i had to fix.

blanco: the thinner backing on the fur meybe just the fur. unfortunately we can't all get fur from one company that makes all the desired colors. and have to shop around for the right ones. sometimes the right fur is a bit cheeper then one would want. but allowances for proper seams should make the suit just as durable.

wear and tear do happen in suits. even if all you do is take them off and put them on. heh.

i was happy to fix the suits and get the furs out there to play. and i would help anyone. and still will. i am not going to say what i think of nobles work. since he has bought several from me and destroyed them for the patterns and idea's. but thats his right they are his.

P.S. blanko: did the additions i made hold up ok?

Actually, clothing patterns (fursuits included) are copyrightable, and has been court-tested :) Whether or not you want to use that leverage is up to you :)

naw. my body suit patterns are highly modiffied from a old set of my clothes. and anyone is free to copy them. i don't mind. even if someone was to buy a suit from me. rip it apart and copy it for their own i don't mind.. i mean they paid for it:)

the only people i have ever even thought of taking to court is the people who constantly slander my name. but it does not happen much anymore so yay!..
