HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
I’m extremely satisfied with the head! In fact its been the most comfortable head I’ve owned/weared. It’s lined completely and the ventilation is great! I can even wear my glasses with him and my glasses barely fog up. The vision at first was a bit bad due to the paint/ eye material he used, but this was his personal suit and was an older suit of his and has since changed his technique! The eyes have since been replaced/ re painted and the vision is almost flawless now. There is a little blind spot but that is average for most suits.The head is also small which makes for easy travel and looks best with plantigrade suits!
His appearance is amazing! Everything is symmetrical and match up with the character completely. The shaving is flawless on the head. The fur is very soft, especially the mint green and short white. His expression is very cute but also a bit grumpy with I really love! MidnightSwim has a very unique style of eyes and heads that work amazingly especially with grumpy characters. I did not have concept art as again, this was a personal character/suit of theirs.
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.
The body is very comfortable to wear! And allows for great movement. I’ve been able to do a lot in it from bowling, to running around to dancing. Very few seams have popped since I’ve owned him, even then they’ve been small ones in common spots such as the armpit and been easy to sew! The quality again is amazing. The body is not lined but that is NOT a common thing to do, which makes it easier to clean and not be so hot, which allows for easy airflow! He is a plantigrade suit so there is no padding in him. He is also ‘skin tight’ which shows my body shape more which is totally okay with me! I think it adds character.
All markings are symmetrical. There is no shaving on the body since all short pile fur was used. The fur feels very soft especially the white/mint green fur! I’m very satisfied with the fur used and colors, it really makes him pop especially with the green!
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
The hands fit me perfectly, I have tiny hands so usually paws can be big on me, but these are perfect for me! They’re very comfortable and do not slide off, it also makes it easy to grab stuff. The quality is great also, they’ve been very durable and only popped one seam since I’ve had them. They are not lined, which again, IS NOT COMMON. This makes them easy to clean and does not make them hot and have easy airflow. The feet were not made by MidnightSwim
The appearance is great! They have a cute feral look which I love, they are also 4 digits which makes them more animal like which I love. They are both symmetrical and have no shaving done since again, all short file fur was used on them. The fur is very soft! The pawpads are made of minky which is my favorite material to use for paw pads, so I’m very satisfied with them! The only thing is they do not match the paw pads on his reference sheet which is okay since I believe a mint green isn’t available in minky. The claws are also made of minky and are small which is very cute!
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Overall I would definitely recommend MidnightSwim to anyone who is looking to have a cute/ unique suit done! Their heads especially are very comfortable and lined flawlessly. I also love that I can wear my glasses which i was not able to do with my previous suits. I would definitely love to have Jaeger re done by them in the near future. The tail and feet paws were not made by them. The tail was made by Shagpoke and the feet were made by PocketWolfStudios
