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 me perfectly, and is not too loose. The vision is a lot better than I expected, although I find it hard to look out both eyes at times, so I usually end up looking out of one eye. The ventilation is probably the biggest issue I have with the head. It is very stuffy and I get warm easily. I have countered this by buying a small fan to wear around my neck and blowing air into the head in case I get too hot, but I have yet to try it out yet.

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

Everything about the way the head looks is amazing. I love her cute eyelashes, the teeth, and the style of the eyes most of all. The shaving is done very evenly. No airbrushing was done and the eyes are static, but still very lively and cute.

How was your concept art realized?

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
Very satisfied. It looks exactly like my character! It also looks just like a skunk. Many skunk suits I’ve seen look more like dogs, so I was very glad that mine is different and unique.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything is consistent and the colors are perfect.

Overall Project Quality

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very satisfied! I would recommend The Grotto Creations to anyone looking for a cute suit!

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

Initial Contact

How satisfied are you with how easy it was to initially contact the maker for a quote?
Yes! They are very easy to get a hold of. Their website is very easy to navigate.

Maker Response Time

I think it was less than 2 days after they stopped taking forms.

Maker Professionalism

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Very. I had a lot of questions and was a little picky about making sure the suit, and they answered all my questions and even changed the fur color for me pretty late into the creating process.

Project Completion Time

I had no deadline, but I think the head was still done very fast.

Final Comments

Well, I emailed them for a quote, they got back to me with a quote, so I decided to go through with having the head made. And then it got made. Pretty standard protocol.

I have no final comments, because I could go on for another 10 paragraphs about how much I love the head and how many compliments I’ve gotten on it, but I don’t want to do that.
