General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under $1000 - $2999.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The heads a little loose, but nothing too bothersome. Because of the LED’s in the eyes, bobber, and the fan in the nose there are wires in the head that I need to push to the side or they get in the way. The head is lined with a balaclava, which makes it nice and comfy to wear. Ventilation and vision have been the best of any suit I’ve worn. I can see perfectly clear with little to no blind spot, and I can go hours without getting too hot. The eyes are huge and allow air flow, the jaw is double hinged, so if needed I can actually flip the top jaw up off my head to get a drink, and the fan in the nose is powerful enough to cause a constant cool breeze. All in all aside from a bit of loose fitting, I’d say it’s the perfect head.
The head is cute and he knows it! The fur is soft, smooth and well shaven. The hair is silky and fits his reference perfectly. It’s a semi-realistic suit, and they’ve got his raccoon nose down pat. Depending on how I use the jaw or tilt the head he can look happy, excited, or even mischievous! The fur color is slightly off from his ref, but I agreed to it and I think it’s just fine for Cassi.
The head features a fan, glowing whiskers, glowing eyes, and a glowing bobber. Two battery packs fit in the back flap of the head, with two wires running along the cheek to plug in. This turns on the fan and the lights. I’ve NEVER had an issue with any of the electrical work.I need a bit of help getting the head on, so I can push the wires aside but it’s never a problem once he’s on.
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.
I’m satisfied with how the body suit fits. There’s a bit of snugness under the arms, but I’ve never outright felt like it was going to pop. I’ve rolled on the floor, played with kids, and danced around and have always been confident in its durability. That said, the inside could use a bit of cleaning up. There are seam lines, some extra fluff a bit of loose thread, nothing to do with durability but it can get a little tickly now and then. The airflow is just fine, I don’t really get hot until an hour or two in,which I think is normal.
Very cute body suit, the markings are just like on the reference, the colors are nice. The shaving is perfect, and the fur is nice and soft.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
My feeties are big and bold, which is just what I wanted. They have a shoe “pocket” inside so they don’t flop around, and fit snug like a sneaker. The bottom is made of extremely durable and cleanable material, though the name of the material escapes me.
The hands are perfect. Big claws, webbed fingers, and thick paw pads. They’re comfortable to wear, have perfect shaving, and are durable.
My only issue with the feet is that the shaving is choppy, which is a slight disappointment. They’re perfect otherwise, and match the rest of the suit in terms of fur color.
The paws are great, and the transition from long to short fur really works well. The claws are extremely durable (I’ve bumped them a few times) and come clean easily.
The fingers have webbing, which is soft as velvet, and incredible durable.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail is huuuuge. Very easy to put on, featuring two durable straps that hook to a belt. It doesn’t hit the floor and sways with my movements, very realistic.
The shaving is good, the fur is soft and the markings are what you expect for a raccoon.
WingsGives information about any wings the costume may have.
I have fins, three of them. They’re a bit cumbersome to get on, I have to wear a harness to have them and the tail attach nicely. The fins also light up so there’s a wire running down my back every time. However they are certainly durable. It takes a while to get it all together and on, but I think that’s my only complaint.
They’re very cute, bendable/poseable, and light up! They’re furred for the thick part of the fin, and feature velvet webbing between them, which works great for the suit.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
I’m pretty satisfied, we had to make some color changes, but its not too far off.
Overall I’m very satisfied.
The lateness on receiving my suit was the worst bit, but to me the wait was well worth it. Cassi is a cute, eye catching, easy to wear and extremely comfortable and durable suit.
