Character Concept Art


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.

Are you satisfied with how it fits you?
It fits okay, not too tight and not gaping

How is the ventilation?
Decent, the mouth opens a bit which helps for breathing

How is the vision?
Plastic mesh used for the eyes, decent vision though.

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

How is the symmetry?
A bit lop sided

Is the shaving even?
The fur’s choppy in areas

How does the fur feel and look?
The fur is a tad clumpy but that’s just the kind of fur it is, I can’t complain about that. Feels soft though.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head and Does it match the concept art?
Not satisfied at all. The mouth was left unlined, after I was told it would be lined. The WIPs I got for the foam base, teeth, and nose were all to a different suit seeing as the whips had a light pink silicon nose (which I was promised) and the received head has a poorly pained foam nose, some paint on fur. The back of the head is suppose to have a black spot and the maker said they made hair for her but I never received any.

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.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

How satisfied are you with how the body fits?
Not at all, too large and the waist is held together in a gaping bunch by a few threads. It has no belt loops or elastic to keep the pants up at all. Plus it’s missing half the body. It was suppose to be a full suit, got sent a half suit with the promise of getting the chest piece soon. it was never made.

How is the quality and durability?
Seams are sewn well but again, the waist is un finished and is difficult to wear for even short periods of time.

What is the interior like?
A lot of markings on the inside but that doesn’t bother me. The digitigrade padding is just loose polifill which makes it impossible to put it on without pulling all the padding out then trying to stuff it back in while wearing it.

How is the airflow?

The polifill makes airflow impossible and I am unable to wear the suit due to getting heat rashes on my calves and thighs

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

How is the symmetry?
It’s an asymmetrical character so as far as this goes I guess decent.

Is the shaving even?
No, i had to go back through and fix up the shaving in a lot of areas

How does the fur feel and look?
Same fur as above, decent quality and for the price I can not complain.

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used?
Not at all. I worked out a deal with the maker that they would do the large spots on the suit and I would air brush the smaller spots in once I got it. None of the larger spots are on the suit other than the arms, no spots on the legs at all.

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.

How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit?
Hands are too small and difficult to get fingers into. Sleeves wont stay up due to no elastic or band across the top.
Feet fit fine, built on an old pair of tennis shoes.

How is the quality and durability?
Paw pads have several holes in the stitching of them with stuffing poking out. No claws given.

What is the interior like?
All unlined but again, for the price I can’t expect it to be.

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

How is the symmetry?
Some fingers are a bit too big compared to others but it is not noticeable unless you look for it.

Is the shaving even?
No, hands weren’t shaved at all and feet were very hastily shaved leaving them looking dingy.

How does the fur feel and look?
Same as above.

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used?
In one of the WIPs I got I pointed out that the toes needed to be black and was assured it would be fixed. It never was. Bottoms of paws left unfinsihed with shoe exposed, doesn’t bother me much though.

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.

How satisfied are you with how the tail(s) fit?
Tail fits fine, honestly the best part of the suit.

How is the quality and durability?
It seems quite durable. Stuffed well, has no armature

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

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?

How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
Not at all. The nose was the wrong color, spots were missing off the suit, hair was completely missing. The smaller spots were to be done by me but seeing as the larger ones weren’t there I didn’t bother finishing the suit.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Colors are consistent but a few of the seams put the colors a little off placed but this doesn’t bother me.

Overall Project Quality

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Very dissatisfied. I was excited to get this suit initially because I liked their style and work but this suit fell very, very short.

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

Initial Contact

It was super easy. The character and suit slot were bought at auction.

Maker Response Time

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
Not very. Talked to the maker multiple times and would get spotty responses. Some times I got them immediately, sometimes a week or two later.

Maker Professionalism

How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Very dissatisfied. Maker kept making promises to fix the situation from completing the missing pieces to giving a partial refund, to reselling the suit for a full refund. After maker disappeared for a short while they came back and said it was too late for them to fix anything and I shouldn’t have waited even though I contacted them the day I received the suit.

Project Completion Time

How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project?
Missed every last deadline. Including the final one that they were suppose to refund me after. Took nearly a year to get the suit and I only received anything after demanding a refund.
