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.

Are you satisfied with how it fits you? Is it too tight or loose? Does anything poke you, stab you, make it uncomfortable to wear? Is it lined comfortably?
It’s very comfortable to wear! Arlo can be worn for hours without any pain or uncomfortable feelings. He is lined with balaclava, and it’s soft.

How is the ventilation? Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Ventilation is great! I can breath easily through the mouth, doesn’t get too hot.

How is the vision? Can you see well in front of you? Is there a large blind spot? Do you have to turn your head to see? (Note: most suits do not have peripheral vision)
Vision is amazing for a head! I can see straight in front of me fine, and have some peripheral vision as well. Easy to see where I am walking.

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

How is the symmetry? Is anything lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per the character design?
Everything is even as far as markings! They look pretty close to the reference given.

Is the shaving even? Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
The shaving is all even, but the shave is a little close/too short on some parts. But that’s a personal preference.

How does the fur feel and look? If it was airbrushed, is the fur crunchy? Do the markings rub off or bleed? Is the fur able to be brushed or smoothed easily?
Fur is very soft, high quality fabric. It looks beautiful and is even more fun to touch. Brushes fine, no loose hairs.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head? Can you achieve varied expressions from different angles? Are the eyes follow-me or static?
Love the expression, it suits his personality really well. His eyes are follow-me and they definitely work.

Does it match the concept art?
Yes, all the way!

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.

How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? Are they comfortable to wear? Do they allow for good movement? Will your wrists/ankles show if you stretch too much? Do they stay on your hands/feet or do they slide off? Can you put them on comfortably with ease?
The hands are a little big on me but still comfortable to wear. They don’t slide off easily and can be put on quickly. Can’t pick things up.

How is the quality and durability? Are the seams durable? Can you move without popping seams? Have paw pads or claws fallen off?
Quality is superb so far, considering is has been through 13 cons. Nothing has ripped or fallen off. The balaclava lining got a small hole in it, but that’s the only teared seam so far. Easy fix.

What is the interior like? Is it lined? Is it messy (fabric marks etc.) on the inside? What type of shoe base do the feet use?
It is lined. Not messy, looks nice and secured so moisture can’t get in.

The shaving is even and looks nice on the paws.

How does the fur feel and look? If it was airbrushed, is the fur crunchy? Do the markings rub off or bleed? Is the fur able to be brushed or smoothed easily?
It’s very soft, but gets messed up easily since the fibers are longer around the arm sleeves.

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used? Are the paw pads fleece, silicone, something else? Are they hooves? Do you like how they look and feel? Do they get scratched easily?
Pawpads are fleece, it matches the colors and is very soft. I think they look adorable and match his toony style.

Nothing has popped so far, all is sturdy. Straps are very secure.
