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 am very satisfied with Raleigh’s head. I asked Husky to keep the cheeks and neck a little loose because I have asthma and it is very comfortable and easy to wear.
He has a fan embedded in the muzzle, as well as little ventilation slits in the nose. It’s not the most effective but it helps and I don’t notice any added weight that he warned me about.
The vision could be a little better as the pupils are the only place to see through, but it makes for very nice photos.

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

Symmetry is great, everything looks good.
Shaving is 99% even, with a slight nick on an eyebrow but it isn’t visible unless it’s pointed out.
Cheek markings are sewn in nicely.
Eyes are follow-me and work well, they have a nice silvery semi-realistic effect to the purple.
Concept art lines up perfectly, especially as he was an artistic liberty commission.
My only little complaint is that when viewed from below, he looks like he’s pulling his top lip down over his teeth.

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

Raleigh’s horns are mounted to the head. I was given the option to have them removable, but transportation isn’t a worry so I opted to have them solid. They are made with foam covered wonderflex, I saw the wips and how he remade them after not being satisfied with the original result (which was nice, Husky is a professional definitely).
He also has black light reactive markings and I love the “do you glow?!” comments I get.

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.

Hands and feet fit very nicely, the hands aren’t lined but the woven backing is soft. The materials were chosen nicely. The feet are lined and are more comfortable than a pair of heels. The foam they’re built on has a good squish to it. The foam on the back of the feet has split, however Husky will be fixing them under warranty.

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

The appearance is wonderful, the feet hooves especially are very realistic. I love his little dew claws and the way they kind of clop as I walk. They get a lot of attention. Hand hoof cloppers are Dvc, with no complaints there either.

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.

His tail is very cute and nubby. It is attached with nylon webbing instead of elastic which keeps it nice and tight to my belt. No complaints.

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

Symmetrical and cute with no listing to either side. I love the slightly longer fluff on the bottom.
