HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The fursuit head is a tad too loose and tends to slip around on my head, which is distracting but not a big issue. It is rather difficult to get it on when I’m wearing my glasses though, which is a shame since I specifically gave her measurements for my glasses as well.
There are parts of the fursuit that I’ve had to touch up, a thin part of foam on the inside has already ripped and the ears do not seem to be secured on very well.
It is not lined but I didn’t really expect it to be.
The ventilation is awesome, I really don’t have any issues breathing in it.
The vision is also pretty great, I don’t have a lot of problems navigating in it.
The symmetry is fairly decent, he doesn’t have a lot of symmetrical markings in the first place. I have noticed that the eyes are a bit crooked, but it’s fairly difficult to notice.
The shaving is even everywhere except the inside of the ears where it is pretty choppy.
It was airbrushed, but I have no problem brushing and smoothing it. As of right now I’ve had no problems with the markings rubbing off or bleeding!
The expression of the suit is pretty dang great, and it looks like a high quality suit head. The eyes were supposed to be follow me but they don’t really achieve that effect, but I’m not salty about it.
It does match concept art surprisingly well, normally artists draw his markings up in the air but Ellie made the face markings look remarkably similar to the reference sheet.
I would like to say that I was promised she would make jewelry for my suit head in the two weeks between it being “finished” and being shipped. That didn’t happen.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Multiple times she would tell me random things are done, then when I would ask for pictures she would tell me she still had to do these things.
She also would constantly forget what I had ordered and what I had paid for it, and asked me multiple times to re-send my reference sheet.
I even paid a $50 rush fee around August 2015 for my suit to take priority in her queue, but yet she would guilt trip me by saying that she had to ask her other clients if it was okay if she could give my suit priority.
She also reminded me her quality had improved since I had initially commissioned her (in the year it took her to not do anything), so I ended up paying above my originally quoted price.
Very unsatisifed, it took her a year and a half to finish my suit head and even then I almost didn’t get it in time for MFF because she waited so long to ship the head.
Really cute fursuit
Customer service was a nightmare
Deadlines will not be met
Complaints will be met with guilt trips
She will ignore you and even up and abandon social media where she can be contacted
I love my fursuit head, it looks amazing. I do hope Ellie will become more professional because she has a great talent. Until then I recommend staying away.
