How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.
The bodysuit is very comfortable and easy to move around in. The padding isn’t overly obstructive to my movement and isn’t constricting in the slightest. The seams are durable and are sewn with extra-durable thread. The interior is unlined but the fabric’s backing is not rough or scratchy. There are sharpie markings on the inside that have bled. The airflow in the costume is pretty nice, though it does get hot.
How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.
The symmetry is perfect and the padding is very easy to place on my own. The shaving was done with scissors so it’s not 100% even but it doesn’t look apparently uneven. The fur is very soft and fluffy, it swishes very beautifully when I move. The bodysuit matches the art perfectly.
Special Attachments and Features
Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.
My suit has a belly pouch adorned with a tongue and teeth. The teeth have a zipper between them and a pouch inside. The quality is very nice- the pouch has ample space for my phone, wallet, keys, and con books. It’s also stitched tightly for durability.

A little hard to reach but he never intentionally ignores people, he’s just a busy person.
Cobalt is a very good maker and his customer service is impeccable.
