[OK] Félix Rêverie Head & Tail by Mitha
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
There was an issue I sadly missed which was the hair of my character but this was something I modded lately.
Filed under $500 and under.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The head fits perfectly. I sent my head circumference at the beginning of the project and it fits really good. It’s not too tight or too lose. It’s really comfortable to wear due to the padding. I can easily get in and out of it.
Vision is really good. No peripheral which is expected. I need to tilt my head downward to see but that’s also expected due to the muzzle. For the rest, the vision is clear.
The symmetry is great. Nothing to add.
The shaving job is good.
The fur is high quality very soft and durable. I played with other types of fur and this one is really perfect.
I commissioned my maker based on another project of hers of an otter toony head. The base is exactly the same. Only the colors and details needed to be added (horns and whiskers). So the expression was the one I expected from the beginning.
The eyes are follow me eyes.
The head matched 80% of the concept art before I modded the hair. Now it looks 95%. I will need to make the whiskers longer though.
I had chosen with the maker what type of horns. We had discussed resin but I was afraid of damage. We went for plush. The horns are made in vinyl and stuffed. They are attached to the head via glue/sewing. They don’t move or fall off. The quality is ok. There are a bit of imperfections on the seams but nothing to be concerned of.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail didn’t came with a belt. This is something I needed to create. This makes it easier to fit. The tail is not too heavy and was really comfortable to wear and really fun. I got really good feedback on it. The tail tips slightly touches the ground but this was expected (visible in one of the pictures).
The tail in its itself is great quality.
Symmetry is ok.
No shaving was necessary in this case.
It feels and looks great.
The colors and materials are what I asked for.
In the concept art, there were 5 fins. Those were added as extensions. They are durable and fit perfectly.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
I would say that the suit was following the art at 85%
Very satisfied, good quality.
Very easy. I got fast response. We set everything up in a couple of hours. The down payment was paid during those.
In the end, things weren’t really the same. I felt a bit of resistance and fatigue about some of my requests about things we had agreed in the beginning.
How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker?
I’m mixed here for reasons already stated but overall it was “good”.
Very satisfied. It fit perfectly into the deadlines.
Personally, working with this maker was great. I learned afterwards that this maker had some issues before my project and they have an artist beware. Also, they let down a friend of mine which had commissioned me at the same as I did and made him wait till March before cancelling the project and refunding him, making him look at other makers and incurring emergency fees.
So I’m a bit mixed in recommending this maker. Quality is great and very professional but the customer service could use some work.
