[NO] Head by Pixelpupcreations
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under $300 and under.
No, I’d like to go into detail to that too. I originally planned to tend YoumaCon 2016 and then cancelled my plans. He told me up front he could definitely have it done by then (YoumaCon is in November 2016), if not earlier because it would take probably 2 months to finish (he told me July at one point). Then after telling him of canceling my plans and that he had a little more time he dropped off the face of the Earth with updates, I had to hunt down his tumblr account to get any correspondence.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The head is a little bit loose, there’s an elastic band inside that’s supposed to hold it down better but it slips off too easily.
As mentioned in my hours thing, there was no ventilation. From what I know about fursuits from friends, usually in foam heads the wall behind the muzzle is cut out to allow air to flow in, this was not the case, I tried to cut out the excess foam myself because it was almost impossible to wear and had trouble doing so.
Vision is…not good. My character is a goat, and therefor has small pupils. I was expecting the maker to make a wider area of vision in the eyes because of this, and he did not.
Symmetry is fine, and the head is made of seal fur so I can’t make any comments on the shaving. The fur itself is perfectly fine, and I have no problems with it.
I’m unsatisfied with the expression. My character’s signature is I always draw him with a wide grin, and the ref I shared with my maker reflected that. What I got was a blank face with no real expression at all.
He didn’t seem to match the concept art very well, as what I sent was similar to the ref linked and again, only difference being the eyes were visible. It doesn’t match, the horns are too small, and he never put the ear piercings and nose ring that my character has in the suit. After being told he was waiting on putting them in to ship it to me.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Do you markings match up at the seams? Are the colors consistent?
Very dissatisfied, I feel like I wasted my money completely.
No. He was nice but his customer service was terrible.
Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
No, he told me it would be done in two months, I got it a year later incomplete after having to hunt him down for it.
Pros- very nice, responsive to the quote
Cons- pretty much everything else. As I keep saying, the initial payment was made in April, predicted to be completed by July but I told him as long as he got it by November it would be fine. He did not meet either deadline, I had to ask him for updates, in December sent me images of the final product saying he had to put in the nose ring and ear piercings and he’d ship it off, contacted him once again in February to ask why it hadn’t been shipped yet, told me he would ship it out the next day, and didn’t receive it. Had to hunt down his tumblr and contact him a month later to ask why it wasn’t shipped and I finally got it in the mail. Without piercings, the thing I was supposedly waiting on for it to ship.
