Character Concept Art

Photos of Completed Product

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


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Fitting wise, there are straps inside that keep it a nice fit and are very much adjustable, it fits snug but not too tight, its really comfortable.

Ventilation is almost like breathing normally, just open the mouth to get some nice cold air while outside, breaths great!

Vision depends on the lighting around me, if its too dark things get a bit blurry, I can see fine if I actually move my head so I can’t complain. (The vision is fine.)

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

Symmetry is great, nothings out of place and the markings look on point with each other. The painting in the eyes are a masterpiece, and look way better in person.

Shaving is perfect, slopes off into long fur really nicely and you can tell a lot of time went into making it even!

The fur is so soft, even on the shorter bits, around the airbrushed areas there is no hardened paint and brushing it is a charm. looks almost like real fur.

Realistic suits don’t usually have much of an expression, but to my surprise this one actually conveys a lot of emotion and I love it!

It matches the concept art as much as I could ask for and then some! They did a wonderful job at bringing her to life.

BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, the answers would also go in this section.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The suit fits really snug, and grasps my body shape perfectly, I can stretch and touch my toes no problem, even with the battery packs inside there is still a fair bit of room, not enough to put a vest inside though I don’t think.

Durability wise, I haven’t tested and ideas of rolling around and being chaotic, but from what I’ve experienced while prancing around in the suit,it holds up very well, and I haven’t had any tearing or popped seams at all.

The interior looks like the outside only without the fur, as some of my friends had put it doesn’t have a second layer(?) or something like that, but it honestly doesn’t bug me.

The airflow is fair, the fur is rather thick so I don’t feel any breeze when one passes by, so it keeps me nice and warm, but its a body suit so I’m not surprised.

Everything is even, nothings lopsided, airbrushing wise the markings aren’t supposed to be symmetrical so I don’t mind and I think they did an outstanding job on my ‘Nebula’ markings.

The shaving is yet another masterpiece, you can hardly tell that it looks shaven, and it fades into longer fur perfectly.

The fur on the body is also soft and I can’t stop petting it, none of the airbrushed areas have hardened paint, and the fur looks pristine.

I’m very satisfied with the materials color and quality wise, the end quality just blew me away.

So the LEDs were a last moment thing, and in the end I can’t say I regret putting them in, they make the suit come to life far more than I can honestly put words into.

The battery packs sit up on my shoulder blades but don’t feel uncomfortable or anything, you can turn them on and the light from my back down to the haunches of the suit, they vary in brightness (or appear that way) and give off the actual idea of stars, they’r perfect!

Aside from some poking every now and again you can hardly tell they’re there. They also are in Velcro and can be removed which is neat.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Hands, at first started a little tighter than I thought, but now they fit just fine, and stay on without any constricting. They’re durable, cause I have to tug quite a bit on them to get them on and not a single seam has torn, which is great. interior is just the under fabric of the fur material, but feels fine on my hands.

Feet, they fit perfectly, super comfortable to walk in and they don’t get too hot inside. The slip on and off without any rough tugging, perfect. Quality and durability wise, I’ve never been so surprised in my life how durable these paws are, I Was afraid I’d break them, but they’re really strong, even the claws (which are very sharp!). Note however the silicone (I think) paws on the bottom do not keep one from slipping or sliding and I almost biffed it a couple of times haha, just all pert of the learning process. Inside they have an extra fabric and hidden zippers, which make for easy access.

Appearance of both feet and paws are amazing, they look adorable and the foot paws are so cute, look like actual paws, and I can’t get over them, they’re one of my favorite parts. Symmetry they are great, shaving is perfect and the fur feels fine. I am very satisfied with the colors amd materials, they are just like the rest of the suit.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

Words can not possibly do this tail justice. The movement of the Articulated Armature tail is way more than I could ever have hoped for, I think its one of the most common things I do in the suit is wag my tail. The strap is adjustable so if I have it on too tight I can always loosen it and it doesn’t press on my stomach uncomfortably. Let me tell you, this thing is durable, I am afraid I’ll eventually wear down the LED wires with all my tail movements but nothing has popped out of place or broken! I can pull the tail around to hold it fairly well, nothing pops then.

Symmetry is awesome, no more can be said about that.

The shaving is great, it really shows off where the tail would be most fluffiest.

Fur feels soft the tail fluff is a bit coarse but it doesn’t clump up at all, no matter how much I shake it.

Very satisfied.

The LEDs inside are probably some of the most amazing LEDs placements I’ve seen so far, they even go into the ‘fluff’ of the tail and they don’t cause me any trouble at all.

The magnets used to hide the battery pack are so well hidden when I first tried to find them I had a lot of difficulty, which in my opinion isn’t a bad thing as it keeps the mystique for me.

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

I honestly can’t put into words how well they did on my character. I don’t think I could have commissioned anyone better to really pull off my character in such a way. Everything looks about how I expected it to and I’m very happy!

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Markings match up perfectly, colors are indeed consistent, I’m mostly happy with how well hidden everything is and their execution of the suit’s visual effects.

Maker Professionalism

They were beyond professional, and very friendly. I never had any problems with them. Customer service was great. They were never rude, they responded when they could, and were very easy to work with.

Even if the deadline was missed, I was more focused on letting them do their job and finish the project within the month, and it was within the month so I have no complaints.

Final Comments

Overall my experience with Clockwork Creature was probably one of my best experiences ever. I couldn’t have picked anyone better to do my suit for me, especially in a realistic style. I’m excited to do more business with them later on if I can get as lucky again. In my honest opinion there were only pros and pretty much no cons.
