HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
There is no zipper in the cowl, so it is a snug fit while putting the head on. Wide elastic straps over the head and around the base of the skull provide a secure fit. A pad on the bridge of the nose helps stabilize the mask. I added a foam chin cup, attached with velcro to adjust the jaw to fit my chin – an adjustment I anticipated. It is lined in the right places, fits comfortably.
Ventilation is good. The fan in the nose circulates air without blowing in my eyes. I do not notice any excessive heat buildup in the head.
Vision is very good for a realistic mask with tear duct vision. I estimate approximately 130 degrees of visibility horizontally and about 75 degrees vertically. Eyeports are spaced well for good binaural vision. There is some cross vision through the opposite eye ports.
The appearance is symmetrical. Markings very closely resemble the character design, which was a photograph of a black wolf with white markings. The head has following eyes.
Shaving is even and appropriate length on the face and muzzle. Cowl is long hair.
I supplied the fur to match my body suit and shipped it to the maker at my expense. Airbrushing is appropriately applied to eyebrows and muzzle. It is not overly stiff.
The facial expression is excellent. Using the moving jaw and head position, I can create expressions ranging from fun and playful to serious or intimidating.
No special attachments.
Electrical components (fan, battery boxes, switch, and circuit board are of good quality and are well designed. Workmanship of electrics is excellent. 4 AA batteries will run the fan for about 6 hours. It also has a power jack for an optional battery pack.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Very satisfied. I would have no concerns about another commission with this artist.
Very satisfied. Very professional. I have seen photos of WMW66 Costumes commissioned by others and have discussed their experiences with them. We have all been completely satisfied.
I proposed a delivery date approximately 7 months from the date of the contract. The completed work was delivered as agreed.
WMW66 Costumes is an excellent choice if their styles suit your design. My initial reservations about a commission with an artist in the Czech Republic were based upon language barrier – There was none. Motomo is fluent in English.
All payments were processed through Paypal, so we had a mutual level of confidence of payment processing. The initial payment amount was appropriate for the work contracted.
