Photos of Completed Product

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. Tight enough that it doesn’t move around much but loose enough that nothing pokes or squeezes uncomfortably. It is lined with a soft balaclava liner. The ventilation is great. The mouth lines up nicely with my own nose and mouth so that there is a fairly constant airflow, and the maker created a vent in the foam in the top of the head under the hair tuft that allows heat to escape. The vision is also fantastic. There is almost no blind spot other than the typical tunnel vision that fursuit heads all have.

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

The appearance is spot on. The maker did a great job of capturing my character. The craftsmanship and attention to detail and symmetry with the carving and shaving is perfect.

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.

They are extremely comfortable to wear, both hands and feet. There is no lining in the hands, but the fur backing is trimmed and soft, so that is not an issue. The feet are built on slippers and extremely comfortable to wear. It has been almost 6 years since I received the costume, and all parts are still holding up, however the soles of the feet have started to show some wear and could probably use new soles at some point.

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

Appearance is great. No complaints.

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.

As with everything else, the tail is extremely comfortable and easy to wear. The original belt loops to attach it are still holding up beautifully and I have never made any repairs.

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

Tail looks good and lively. Makes for great pictures!

Overall Project Quality

How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Beyond satisfied. The costume is turning 6 years old in March and has never needed a single repair. She has never popped a seam and nothing has ever come unglued. The entire suit is extremely durable and has held up to quite a bit of rough use.
