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?
10/10 The head has an adjustable strap so it can fit virtually any head. The inside is very clean, and I never feel anything stabbing me. It isn’t lined. I will say, however, that the cheeks can be a bit uncomfortable at certain times, and the head is kinda heavy, but nothing to complain about.

How is the ventilation?
9/10 The head was built on a casted base, so I can’t open the jaw or whatever to get more air flowing, but the mouth is placed just right to where the air flows perfectly. The mask never gets stuffy, and air can circulate through the head very well.

How is the vision?
11/10 The vision is fantastic! There’s almost NO blindspot in the middle. I only have to turn my head very slightly to see fully to the left or to the right, that’s it.

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?
8/10 The face looks fine if you don’t pay too much attention. The white part above her eyes are ~kind of~ uneven, but it could just be my knack for looking out for those things. I will say, if you look directly under her head, the light brown part is VERY uneven.

Is the shaving even?
10/10 They didn’t do a lot of shaving, as it looks like they (the LemonBrat Team) used a lot of short furs. I will say, however, that on the rightmost white marking above the eye is a slight mis-shave. I’m not 100% positive if it’s my fault or theirs, so I’ll give it a pass.

How does the fur feel and look?
8/10 I don’t notice any airbrushing except (maybe) for some orange markings to make “whisker bases” on her muzzle. When I used the disinfectant spray (50% water, 50% rubbing alcohol), the orange comes off very easily. I feel like the dark brown could be a bit softer to touch. The other furs/materials they used are very soft and plush, while the color that makes up most of the suit isn’t soft nor plush. It seems out of place of you feel it, but not if you look at it.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
9/10 The eyes are very huge and follow me with hard casted eye bases (very beautiful.) She doesn’t have a very big smile, but it’s so subtle that along with her black markings on her forehead, makes her look mischievous in some angles, and overly happy in others. I love this! The reason I gave this a 9/10 is because from the bottom she looks very ugly. I mean, like terrifying (but it’s hilarious and I love it.)

8/10 (Keep in mind, I did NOT draw the concept art! LemonBrat draws their own concepts for pre-mades) Their concept art made it seem like they were planning for some more airbrushing around the muzzle, and in the concept art her eyes appear to be green. On the suit, her eyes are orange, and there’s hardly any airbrushing. Also, the white markings seem to wrap all the way around the eye in the concept art, but only stretch halfway on the suit.

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.

(I only received paws and arm sleeves)

How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit?
7/10 I’d say they’re pretty comfy. I have to keep my hands from being at my sides, or else it’ll feel like they’re slipping off. The arms are very big on me, though I can understand why. The movement is pretty good, though I have to be careful to not let anything slip off. My wrists never show (as far as I know) so that’s good. The paws are super easy to slip on and off as well.

How is the quality and durability?
10/10 Hella good seams. Like, industrial good seams. Nothing has fallen off, though I did notice there was some fur stuck underneath said seams (I picked them out with a needle.)

What is the interior like?
9.5/10 Neither the paws or arms are lined. The arms are perfect. The paws, however, have some visible pen marks, though I find it interesting how they were made so to me it’s no big deal.

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?
10/10 The paws are super adorable, no complaints here. The arms as well (they’re just plain brown.)

Is the shaving even?
9/10 The shaving is even, though the transition to the different types of fur is awkward

How does the fur feel and look?
9/10 I feel like the dark brown could be a bit softer to touch. The other furs/materials they used are very soft and plush, while the color that makes up most of the suit isn’t soft nor plush. It seems out of place of you feel it, but not if you look at it.

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used?
9/10 The transition of materials from hand to finger is very awkward. The pawpaws seem like they’re made of a pleather type of material.

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?
9/10 It’s very cute and comfy, but most importantly the movement is amazing! Although, I do have to put it on the wrong way to make the tail point more outward instead of towards my legs, meaning the belt loops are visible if I don’t hide them under my shit/jacket

How is the quality and durability?
10/10 The quality is amazing. No complaints here.

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used?
Brown is my favorite color, so I’m very satisfied with the colors. I kind of expected the tail to be less stiff, but it has amazing movement!
