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.

it fits me really well, save for me having to do some minor re-adjusting if ive been turning around a lot
i was really surprised with how nice the vision and ventilation were! i can see really clearly through the eyes and the mouth.
ventilation is really good too, its very easy to breathe because the mouth is open and cold air goes in through there

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

i had an image in my head of what this would possible look like based on other suits, and it fit that pretty well !
the shaving is nice and transitions well, the fur is super soft and easy to brush
i really like how it looks overall ! it has followme eyes that work really well, too !

the only thing off with appearance is the colouring, but thats my fault because i couldnt find exact colours of fur so i chose the closest, but i still like it

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 body fits really well, and still has a bit of room in it ! i can move around well in it, too
the seams are good, and i have yet to see anything break
the air flows through it well and i can easily cool off my standing in front of a fan

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

again, super fluffy and easy to brush. the zipper is hidden completely

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.

the hands and feet fit really well, and transition into the bodysuit nicely. theyre easy to put on (with the exception of accidentally putting things on the wrong hand/foot)
they stay on easily and slide off when i want them off
the feet use a slipon shoe that i actually tried on sent over, i cant really remember what exactly they were

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

again, the shaving is really well done, with the only exception being how the fur on the hands is shorter than the fur on the arms, but that difference isnt very noticeable
the paw pads are shaved down fur, and theyre sewn to the paws.
the feet and big and stompy, and i really like that !

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.


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

the tail is a bit of a hassle to put on, but i am new to fullsuiting so i guess i should give it more time.
it’s easy to wear, and is really durable

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

again, super soft and, the tail is stuffed, so its like a giant plushie
its long enough to hold but not too long that it drags on the ground, and again, really easy to brush

Final Comments

this was my first time commissioning anything this big, and me, being Super Cautious and Worried, was really worried about being scammed/bad communication/the bad stuff, but i got none of that and overall it was pleasant !

pros:
-super good visibility and ventilation
-fits what i had imagined
-very fluffy
-easy to move in and wear

cons:
-there were some hot glue chunks left in the fur but i brushed most of those out

this is my first actual fursuit, and im extremely happy with it!!!
i’d like to note that the low price is because at the time syke was charging only for materials so she could get experience
