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.

Very comfortable, slightly lose. It sometimes slips a little which makes it harder for me to see, but it’s nothing major. I may sew in extra padding. Ventilation is a bit of a struggle but it becomes easier the more I wear the suit. The fursuit vision is great, only very small blind spot in middle.

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

Symmetry is great, love the shape of the head.shaving is mostly even, very satisfied. Fur is mildly soft, easy to brush. Except the ‘hair’ fur is a little crunchy. The marking by the eye we’re simply painted on, so I have to be care to no damage the markings when brushing that area of fur. Love the overall look and expression of the head, only issue is the eyes. They seem a little messy but I still like them. However, the fur color did not match the concept art and I was very disappointed. In email I had asked to see what fur was being ordered so I could approve it was the right color first. That comment was never responded to and the first time I saw the fur was when it was already being used on the fursuit, to late to order a different color. The color was grey instead of brown, the color I intended for my character. And the painted on markings by the eyes turned out white instead of tan like on the reference. I never got to see the headbase or anything, only was shown the head once it was completed. The ears were pointed instead of curved, which is wrong for an African wild dog, and I wasn’t a fan of the original ‘hair’ they had, it was in a bubbly shape and seemed to be made out of a minky like fabric. I brought this up and the maker changed them correctly.

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.

Very satisfied with the handpaws and sleeves, perfect fit and good quality. Only thing was the fur was gray when it was supposed to be brown.the feet are very comfortable, perfectly sized. I love the look of the feet paws (except wrong fur color) the only issue I had was at the bottom the foam and bottom of the show it was built on is very visible. I didn’t know this until I received the suit. I’m not to bothered though and will most likely sew something over it.

As stated above, very pleased with appearance besides the wrong fur colors and bottom of the feet paws.

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.

Tail is very comfortable, light. Have no trouble with it at all.

Visible seams wear the belt loop is, but seems sturdy. The gray fur should be brown by the purple tip is perfect. The transition of furs is a little weird because the gray fur is thicker and longer then the purple fur, but I don’t mind this.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

Unsatisfied with how this matched the concept art. I had to ask for the ears to be redone curved. Main fur color in concept art is brown but the fursuit is gray. Markings by eyes are tan but on the suit they are white. Satisfied with purple markings.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Every matches up perfectly. Perfect fit except the slightly loose head.

Overall Project Quality

Quality is mostly good, except id say the look of the eyes is low quality, but vision is still great. Bottoms of feet paws could have been covered up. Other then that I was completely satisfied with quality
