About the Reviewer

Reviewer

Furaffinity: Rhee

Relationship With Maker

The maker is NOT a friend

Prior Experience

I was in the process of making my own, so at the time some experience

Informed Maker of Issues

I wasn’t very good with the communication with the maker, the beak airbrush was damaged right out of the box and I don’t think I ever let them know. It is such a small thing and also I was deeply afraid at the time of bothering them.

Wear Time

I don’t use this partial a lot but easily 60-75 hours over the years I’ve had it.

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 snug and fits like a dream, it is lightweight and I hardly notice it unlike some of my other heads. It is a bit problematic getting it on, being so tight. The neck of the head was disclosed as being a bit short, and it’s still is short.

Ventilation is good, I did add a fan later on which improved that. Vision is great the tear ducts are closer to each other and I’m able to see better than my other suits.

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

I really enjoy the super realistic look of this head the markings are still quite nice from years of use. I’ve done minimal upkeep and had no issues.

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

the moving jaw is fantastic, since the head is snug it doesn’t need elastic in the jaw. The ears are some what poseable and it gives the head a more variety of looks. I am in love with the battle injured beak adds a lot of character to the head. the tongue is foam and squishy.

Final Comments

I had a great experience with the maker it took me a while to realize it. this was my first real foray into the furry fandom, Sharpe was patient and professional with me as I blundered in and bought a head from her. I may at a later date see if this head could go in for a refurbish.
