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 is made od a resin base, and has an elastic strap bult in so you can set it to fit your head perfectly.

Built in battery powered fan makes it easy to breathe and let the cool air flow. Drilled nose holes for a even better ventilation.

The vision is limited (like most realistic heads) to a view right behind you and there is a small blind spot right where the muzzle is, when someone or something is in the middle and too near, you can overlook it.

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

From the first day I got it, I am very satisfied and glad with how it looks. The fur is ideally shaved for a german shepherd dog, and the markings depict a real GSD, how it looks, are airbrushed and hold on perfectly even after 2 years.

The head features follow me resin eyes, and with help of the eyes and the markings, I can do various expressions, like “dog eyes” (the sad begging face) and so on.

Moveble jaw is there for sure too 🙂

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.

HANDPAWS:
Fit my hand perfectly and I can move freely. THey have big latex pawpads and resin claws, and because of the big pads, it should be sometimes problem to operate with small things (like pressing the camera shutter)

As for quality, they are very well sewed and so far I haven’t had any problems like seams ripping, or claw falling off

FEETPAWS:
Constructed on an Adidas urban footwear, with a casting foam. Instead of rubber sole, there is a fur and a hard and durable PU pawpads glued on, to make them look realistic. Outdoor tested.

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 about ideal length to my body, filled with cotton wool, so it’s light and it wags from side to side when walking, just like a real dog’s tail. Airbrushed marking.

Final Comments

Everything was great 🙂
Contacted them with a quote for a partial suit of a realistic German Shepherd Dog, the communication was very professional. During the progress, they sent me WIP photos of the project to keep me (as their client) informed about the current status.

I would definitely recommend them, if you want to comission a realistic fursuit. Even their prices are affordable and the completion times are best from what I’ve seen around.
