Photos of Completed Product

BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, 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.

Body is a tad loose because he uses a tailoring method of measuring rather than a DTD. Shoes are a little bit big on me. Pads are held on by a small string in the legs and the back leg pads adjust not held by anything.

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

There is only shaving on the body. Fur is soft but the orange on the chest fell off only held by small amounts of string and the fur was damaged under it. I accidentally sent the wrong link to the yellow but it still blends nicely when I wear a bandanna. Only negative thing is theres a bunch of holes in the seams where you can shove your finger into and the orange fell off.

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 feet were built on a pair of the makers old tennis shoes and were slightly too big. The quality and durability were poor. only worn for 5 minutes for pictures and the feets fur is peeling off and the maker used what looks like a mix of wood glue and hot glue.

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

The feet look very block like and the foam for the toes are made of thin foam shaped as a block and is collapse able.

The maker I commissioned because he was a local and a friend of mine. But he rushed the product and it definitely shows. Once confronted about the issues he became very rude and started to ignore me. I wouldn’t suggest buying from this maker.
