Relationship With Maker

The maker was NOT a friend when the item was purchased, but they ARE a friend now

Prior Experience

No, this is my first suit.

Informed Maker of Issues

Yes, the furline on the back neck of the head was too short and would expose the orange collar on the fursuit. The maker promptly sent extra fur so i could cut out and sew on extra fur myself.

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.

For being an adoptable, it fits really well! Snug and doesnt shake around my head too much. The neck patterns keep alligned with the body via magnets, which do flap around a bit when moving the head around excessively, but they do snap back into place eveuntally! The head is also lined on the inside which is a very nice touch. Being a manokit thouh, the viewing range is not the best at all. You get used to it after a while, but ive been contemplating about putting cameras in the nose and a VR headset inside the head, but who knows when ill get around to that :p

A big loveable cutie! The squinty eyes really make it look super cute. Fur symetry, fur shaving and feel are super on spot. I just wish i had the ability to move the jaw or at least keep it open a bit more so i could get more air into my face.

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.

Fits very well! As i said before, this suit was an adoptable, and it just so happened that my size was the same size as the suit, so i fit in like a glove! The inside of the suit isnt lines so there are exposed seams and such, but it isnt a problem when im wearing yoga pants and underarmor. Walking around in it feels natural and nice, albiet very warm. Ive started to notice one or two seams and pieces of hot glue starting to unravel after 10 hours of wear, but im sure i can fix those myself.

Ive been told i give some of the best hugs! With my big pillowy thighs and fluffy body, who wouldnt want to squeeze this cute Manokit? Patterns and colors look well done and perfectly symetrical. With a little bit of care after every wear, this manokit looks and feels like a dream.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

The hand paws fit well and do the job nicely! I would of like to seen some sort of lining on the inside so my sweaty hands dont rub up against the inside of the paws too much. Im starting to feel a bunch of little lint clumps with my fingernails. There are pillows inside the paws that make them look super big and puffy, which inevitably makes them harder to grab things, but i expected that.

The feet are basically some tennis shoes with fur padding around it and foam toes, so it feels exactily like a tennis shoe. Not bad at all!

BAPPY PAWBS! These big bappers are super cute looking and super soft, making for an adorable feel and look. The colors match and everything goes nicely together!

The toes look big, but proportionally big! They fit the look well and i have nothing to complanin about with them.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

The maker recently offered to change the tails out for me so she could make them using a lighter foam, because the older one was quite heavy, so my review will be based off of that.

It holds up to the abuse! Super swishy and clean looking. All i have to do is use a belt to wrap around my waist and it holds up nicely! A tail like this thouh makes it a bit difficult to sit down casually though, you have to bend over or find a place where your tail can sag so you dont crush it if you lean back.

I love this tail. Its swishy and cute. The white fur at the bottom is long and shaggy, making for a cute accent of colors that all come together. The fin shape is really nice as well!
