     6. Design changes can be made until the tape is cut off of the head. This is due to not being able to alter the pattern pieces once cut.
     7. For artistic liberty commissions, design changes cannot be made. The point of an artistic liberty suit is to have the design made by the maker. The client gets to choose the colors, amount of colors, gender, and species.
Minor Policy:
     1. All clients must be 15 or older. Far Out Fursuits will not work with minors that are 15 or under.
     2. All clients must have clear identification proof. If the client is 16 or 17, a photo of their parent’s face next to their parent's ID must be provided. If the client is 18 or older, a photo of their face next to their ID must be provided. Far Out Fursuits only needs the picture, full name, and date of birth on the ID, so feel free to block out all other information if that makes you more comfortable. This photo will only be seen by the maker (one person).

Shipping and Handling:
     1. Far Out Fursuits is based in California, and, as of right now, will only ship items within the USA.
     2. The client must cover shipping costs. Shipping prices vary depending on size and weight, but range from about $25-$100. Prices can exceed $100, though it is rare.
     3. All packages are sent via UPS unless asked otherwise. Tracking numbers will always be given, provided that UPS gives one.
     4. After the package is sent out, Far Out Fursuits is not responsible for the package. This includes but is not limited to: delays of the package, damage to the package and/or suit, or loss of the package. Far Out Fursuits will not issue refunds for suits that are damaged or lost in the mail, as it is out of their control. Insurance can be bought for the package if requested. Convention pickups are also available, when applicable.

Deadlines:
     1. Far Out Fursuits can work with deadlines, though they are not guaranteed as they are still in school and have other obligations that come before suit work.
     2. Estimated turnaround time is 8 months for all suits.
     3. Sudden deadlines that have not been discussed before the commission has been started will be ignored.

Work In Progress Photos and Updates:

     2. Photos can be shared privately and/or publicly, or neither if the client would like to keep it a surprise.
     3. Photos of the completed suit can be given, or the finished suit can be sent without pictures for a surprise if requested.

Free Items/Discounts:
     1. No free Fursuits, fursuit parts, patterns, tools, materials, or anything else Far Out Fursuits uses will be given out unless explicitly stated.
     2. If you are not happy with Far Out Fursuits’s prices, please find another maker. Far Out Fursuits will not lower prices unless explicitly stated. Fursuits are luxury items, no one NEEDS one.

Health and Safety Information:
     1. Fursuiting will impair vision, impair hearing, impair ability to move, and will attract the attention of others.
     2. Fursuits are very hot. You will sweat and lose a lot of water. Stay hydrated constantly and be aware of what your body is telling you. “Ruining the magic” is way better than having a heat stroke and going to the hospital.
     3. Disinfect and brush the fursuit after every wear, and wash the fursuit after every major outing (conventions, meetups, etc). Fursuits do not last forever, but with good upkeep, they can last many years.
     4. It is recommended that you try on a friend’s fursuit before purchasing your own to make sure you can handle and be comfortable under the above conditions.

Things Far Out Fursuits will NOT Do:
     1. Create anything intended for NSFW or sexual use. However, what the client chooses to use their suits for is out of Far Out Fursuits's control.
     2. Create realistic suits or suits out of their style.
     3. Use real animal fur.
     4. Change the character’s design after the tape has been cut off of the head.

The Client Is Aware of the Following:
     1. A fursuit of any kind is a 100% hand-made item. Though Far Out Fursuits always does their best to make things as even, neat, and clean as they can, mistakes do and will inevitably happen. Symmetry mishaps, wrinkles, exposed glue, exposed seams, exposed thread, uneven shaving, etc. may occur and may, depending on the severity, be unable to fix without redoing the entire suit part.
     2. If any mistakes are found by the client upon receiving the suit, they may ship the part(s) back for free repairs in the first 6 months of having the suit as long as the client pays shipping to and from Far Out Fursuits’s location. After 6 months, repairs will need to be covered through a fee. Amount will depend on what repairs are needed.
     3. For digi fullsuits, they will be made on a Mugiwara Cosplay pattern. This might result in bagginess or tightness in some areas. Plese provide me with mesurements before the fullsuit is started (measurements needed will be discussed before commissioning).
     4. For digi legs, they will be made on a ZabaCostumes pattern. This might result in bagginess or tightness in some areas. Plese provide me with mesurements before the legs are started (measurements needed will be discussed before commissioning).
     5. Far Out Fursuits's owner/maker is still in school and has a job. All schoolwork, job duties, and other obligations will be completed first before any commission work is started.
