HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.

How satisfied are you with the fit of the head?
Is it too tight or loose? Does anything poke you, stab you, make it uncomfortable to wear? Is it Lined comfortably?
PERFECT! The head fits great! There’s even enough room for me to put a loose ponytail, and I love that! It’s super comfortable to wear, the lining is amazing. I was completely satisfied!

How satisfied are you with the vision?
Can you see well in front of you? Is there a large blind spot? Do you have to turn your head to see? (Note that most suits do not have peripheral vision)
Vision is great as well! Since this is my fist fursuit experience I do not really know what to compare to. But the vision was alot better than I expected! I can see very well, and I also love that I can see through the open mouth as well! It’s great for looking down without actually having too!

How satisfied are you with the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Ventilation was AMAZING. The open mouth is PERFECT for it! I have a straight breathing path. I was able to wear the head for a long period of time without getting too hot! It’s perfect!

How satisfied are you with the symmetry of the head?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Markings were perfectly aligned. I think a few months into having the suit I did find VERY small imperfections, but if it took me that long to realize it that should tell you how discreet they are! One of the inner ears was a little smaller than the other, and one of the eyelashes/top eyeline was a little longer than the other. But again, not obvious at all! You REALLY have to look for it!

Is the Shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
Shaving is great! No complaints!

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
She’s adorable! The maker did a great job with the expression! Everyone loves her bright smile and I always get complimented on her beautiful eyes!

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matched the concept art?
If there was none, please state N/A
Matched it to a T!

How satisfied are you with the consistency of your suit to the makers style?
I loved how it looked unique from all the other equine heads the maker has done. but still kept her consistent style! I was very happy!

How satisfied are you with the overall quality?
Are all the seams durable? Has anything fallen apart? Are there any holes?
No problems at all! She is one tough horsie! I’ve seen other suits that just flop around and aren’t really constructed well but this one is SOLID! I loved it! I would also like to add the maker, for the mane used brushed out yarn, and it works AMAZING! It’s very easy to style, and she made it thick so when I brush it, it wouldn’t wear down. I’ve brushed it multiple times and hardly anything comes out!

How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up?
Do you markings match up at the seams? Are the colors consistent?
Yes!

How satisfied are you with how easy it was to initially contact the maker for a quote?
Did they take an unreasonably long time to respond?
Not at all!

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
It was perfect! There was one time where I did not get a update for about 2 weeks, so I contacted her, and she shared with me that some medical problems were going on, so she had not had time to respond. She was very apologetic, and after that, nothing else was wrong!

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
Very friendly, very professional. I had tons of questions and she was always eager to help and answer them! I cannot thank her enough for her patience.

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
Right on time!

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Extremely satisfied

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
Extremely satisfied

Final Comments

PGP was very professional and accommodating. Not only was their service phenomenal, the head itself is of great quality. I have owned this suit for about a year now, and there is still no sign of wear after playing with kids and going to lots of cons. Their attention to detail is great, and I cannot say enough great things about their service.
