Character Concept Art


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.

It fits wonderfully! A little loose and I’ll sometimes have to nudge the head up, but comfortable!
This is the best ventilation I’ve had on a fursuit so far; I can breathe freely and air circulates well throughout the head. Cute and cozy space lining!
I have a large blind spot in the center of my vision due to the unnatural shape of the character’s head, but the maker made up for that by providing 3 tear duct vision spots and enough space in the mouth for me to be able to look out of when necessary.

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

Cryptid is an unusual fursuit because he’s made entirely out of minky. However, he has very few wrinkles and bumps; his seams are even well hidden! No awkward cuts anywhere, either! The best job I’ve ever seen with minky on such an unsual foam shape!
There is some airbrushing as requested, but it does not leave the minky feeling excessively rough or crunchy.
The neck is a bit short for my taste, but I have no other complaints whatsoever and generally don’t notice, since I usually wear a hoodie with the fursuit.
The head is a perfect match to the concept art! I couldn’t have asked for better!

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

The special feature is that the head is fully minky. This was done per my request, and means that the fursuit takes more time to clean, but it is smooth and soft.

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 minky lined with a lyrca-like material, and they’re extremely soft! They are comfortable to wear and not a single seam has popped, nor do my wrists show! They stay on perfectly and do not slide. Super cozy!

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

As mentioned before, minky is a high-maintenance material, but the hands are very easy to clean.
