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 is very comfortable to wear. Since it was a premade it was made in a “one size fits all” fashion with elastic straps and it fit all of my friends who were eager to try it on.

After a while the head starts to get a little stuffy and I assume it’s because the fabric used to line it is a little thick. The mouth is big enough that I can open it wide and get some air.

The eye holes are a little small so vision is limited. The blind spot in the middle is very small though, so that helps with some of the vision issue. Sheer fabric was used for the eyes so it’s kind of like I’m wearing sunglasses and I can’t wear the suit at dusk/night or in dark rooms.

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

The ears and mouth are asymmetrical and one ear kind of flops into one of the eyes. The mouth is uneven so if I turn my head one way, she looks happy and if I turn it the other way she looks kind of quizzical. A good thing is that I can get a range of emotions with her.

The shaving is even except for a few stray tufts of fur around the mouth and a little bit of the backing shows in that area. The fur is very soft to the touch.

The eyes only have a little bit of a following effect since they’re flat but that’s not much of an issue. I get compliments all the time on how adorable she looks overall and if I suit around children, they seem to love her.

The biggest appearance issue is the neck. It’s very big and floppy and if I tuck it into my hoodie/shirt it will eventually bunch up and stick out the back. I use a bandana to keep it in place.

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 to wear. The fur is separate from the lining so when I’m wearing long sleeves, I can tuck the sleeve between the two fabrics and my wrists don’t show. I have little to no problems picking things up in them.

The paw pads are fleece and the pads are the right paw are smaller than on the left, but really that’s just a cosmetic thing. Overall, they look and feel very nice.

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.

The tail is very bouncy and fun to wear. It has double straps made of elastic and so far they seem very durable.

The tail looks and feels great.
