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.

I can wear the fursuit very comfortably. Ventilation and vision are fantastic. The only problem (which isn’t really an issue right now) is that when I wear my glasses in the head, they fog up, so I can’t wear them, but I think that’s an issue with most fursuits. Otherwise, the head is very easy to get on and off (even with glasses on) and is very comfortable and wearable for hours without getting too warm.
I can also drink from a standard soda/water bottle or straw with this head on.

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

From what I can see the jaw looks a tiny bit crooked. The shaving looks great, and I love the fur. I love the expression, it’s the perfect mix of sassy and relaxed. I was having a hard time deciding on a voice for her until I got this head and I think the voice defines her very well. The eyes are static but they still kind of watch you from certain angles. I would say that the expression stays pretty much the same. The head also matches the concept art very well, despite some colors being a bit difficult to replicate!

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

The hands and feet are very comfortable. I was able to pick my own shoes for the feet and I love them. The hands fit me awesomely as do the sleeves. Everything stays together very nicely and I have yet to have any seams break.
Salty also made the feet paws smaller because I’m clumsy and tend to trip on my own feet. I’m happy to say that they’re very comfortable and I have yet to trip on them!

Everything looks very nice and is made exactly to my specifications. With colors so specific, it was a bit hard to find everything exactly, but I think the fursuit looks great for the minor limitations presented!!

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

The tail is very sturdy and durable. It doesn’t touch the ground and it has nice sway to it, and it doesn’t twist or swing in front of my legs as I walk like a lot of tails do.

The tail looks very very nice. It’s a simple design so I didn’t expect any less. 🙂

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

The ONLY complaint I have about the appearance of this fursuit is that the left hand paw does not have any spots, which are visible in the ref, but I just haven’t gotten around to having Salty fix that (and I also failed to mention it when I saw the pictures), so that’s mostly my fault!

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Do you markings match up at the seams? Are the colors consistent?
Yes! The suit looks totally seamless and the colors look great. The longer fur on the head unfortunately shines a bit purple in the sunlight, but that doesn’t bother me much. I don’t think the maker really realized that when the fur was picked out either!
