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

Are you satisfied with how it fit you?
The head did not fit me, and had to force myself to put it on, asked for a 25 inch head – it fit my friend with a 21 inch head loosely Bits of glue stabbed my nose, and hurt, the lining was a warming lycra so you can’t wear head without overheating in less than 30 minutes.

How is the ventilation?
Heating material was used, mouth was too small, and couldn’t wear the head for more than 30 minutes.

How is the vision?
I enjoyed the vision what I could see, the blind spot was in the middle of where her nose

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?
The jaw was a bit lopsided but overall the markings were semi alright – the back of the ears weren’t exactly hearts and the marking in the middle was changed.

Is the shaving even?
No, it was choppy, I could see the backing, and the transition wasn’t smooth.

How does the fur feel and look?
The pink that was used was Mongolian and was hard to brush and whatever was used for the face, the other furs [teal and white] were smooth and very soft to the touch

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
I asked for interchangeable eyelids and had to remind the maker of them when the eyes were done, I couldn’t use the eyelids without them falling off within seconds. I couldn’t achieve any expressions, and it was frustrating.
Follow-me eyes with unfinished lining on the eyes with the following out.

Does it match the concept art?
Semi, things were changed such as her heart marking on her forehead without no approval, colors [which were preapproved but would have liked to see them next to the other colors that were picked]

I couldn’t entirely fit them without having to force my hand into them, they didn’t allow much movement. They stayed on my hands but were not comfortable.

How is the quality and durability?
I could not move my hands without popped seams, and paw-pads that had holes where the polyfill was exposed.

What is the interior like?
It was not lined, it was messy with fabric marks inside that my hands became dirty but for the feet, they were lined and were semi comfortable, no shoe it was a sock paw.
