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.

The head fits really well. Though the neck is a little tight and takes a bit to get on. Once it’s on it stays on. The head is made of expanding foam and is fairly heavy. It does cause the head to pull down and away from my face. Needs to be lighter or have some kind of strap to keep it in place.
Ventilation is pretty good, air comes in through the mouth and eyes. Vision is good as well. There is a blind spot between the eyes but it’s not terrible.

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

The overall look is very good. Everything is symmetrical. The shave job is very well done. The fur is nice and soft. Like the expression and the follow eyes are great. Love the huge ears!
The only issue I have with the head is the airbrushing around the eyes. To me it feels like too much for a male character. At some angles it makes the face look femminine to me. I liked it more before the airbrushing. I’ve added what the head looked like before and after the airbrushing:

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 suit fits really well. The seams are clean and trimmed and mostly free of fur. I haven’t had any issue with seams popping or coming undone. Easy to put on and off with a zipper in the front.

Once again the fur is soft and high quality. The color choice is what I asked for. The markings are even and line up properly. The marking on the back of the right leg is air brushed and looks decent. Though not completely symmetrical and feels rushed. But the air brushed fur is still soft to the touch. Here are pics of the marking:

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

This is my first suit with digi padding. I really like how the maker made the digi. The padding is in individual pillows that slide into place under the fur. I haven’t had much issue with them sliding around or moving out of place during wear. The padding is also very light and easy to sit on.

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 and feet are well made and durable. Clean seams and great soft fur. The hands could do with elastic around the wrists to help keep them in place but otherwise perfect. The feet fit perfectly. They are built on very nice slippers.I think the feet are made of the same expanding foam as the head. They’re a little heavy but don’t cause problems.

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

The fingers and toes are shaved very well. No backing showing. The fingers are stuffed, but soft and can still grab some things. The pawpads on hands and feet are a vinyl, I believe, and great quality material.

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 attached to the body. Which makes for easy and simple wear. Again the markings are right.

Looks good. Haa a fun bounce when walking.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

It was very easy to initially contact and get a quote.

Maker Response Time

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
Mostly satisfied. Communication was quiet before my suit was actually being made. Which makes sense. But she was pretty prompt with answering questions.

Maker Professionalism

Maker was friendly and fairly professional. The main concern I have was that there was no terms of service that I could read. Then the confusion with deadlines.

Project Completion Time

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Mostly satisfied. I was dissapointed that I didn’t get the suit for MFF 2015. But glad I got it within a years time. Once again, the maker needs to be more clear on timelines and even giving a rough estimate of completion date would be good.

Final Comments

I think I’ve gone over everything pretty thoroughly. There’s no question that the maker is skilled and makes good, high quality fursuits. Communication was really the only think lacking. Just not being clear in what was going on and what to expect from the maker.
