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 slips on very easily but it is very tight across my nose area. But not too tight that I feel my circulation is going to be cut off. The head is very lightwight and not heavy!

Ventilation is pretty good! Open mouth for air circulation, plus short muzzle!

The vision is typical fursuit vision with a slight blind spot. I can see where I am going, though I have to sometimes favor one eye over the other. I am okay with this since I am used to blind spots in fursuit heads so it’s not a huge issue to me.

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

The symmetry is pretty good, I don’t think anything is really lopsided. I expect things not to line up perfectly on a fursuit head so this doesn’t really matter to me, as long as it’s not majorly obvious.

Very even shaving! She did a great job on that. Fur is very soft and fluffy!

I completely adore his expression, I even showed her how exactly I wanted the eyes to look and she nailed it! I specifically asked for small, round ferret ears and she also did it perfectly as well. Even got the ferret fangs too! I am really happy with how the face came out. She definitely followed my concept art well!

The only things that did not come out exactly as I wanted was I wanted a more ferret-shaped nose and it looks too caninelike. I also wanted the mohawk on the back of the head to stand up a bit more, as it’s flat. The marking between the nose should have been more of a V-shape instead of a straight line. But, since this was a gift, I did not mention this to the maker since I did not want to come off too picky. Other than those few flaws, I am very happy with my fursuit and he is a precious part of my fursuit collection.

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.

The hands are extremely comfortable! The sleeves on the hands are a good length and do not show skin very easily. I can easily tell which hand is right, and which is left. Once on, they are very secure! The claws and pads are made out of red minky fabric which makes them really soft!

The hands are very well-sewn together and I like how plush the pawpads are! She made sure the pawpads looked exactly like a ferret’s.

The hands are not lined on the inside, but the edges are finished with bias tape. But this is not a big deal to me, as I don’t mind.

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.

I am extremely satisfied with the tail. It is the exact length I wanted (almost a floor-dragger, but not dragging). Very easy to put on. Gosh, I love how floofy it is too. Everything about the tail is perfect.

I am extremely happy with everything!
