Character Concept Art


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 almost exactly the size of my head, which does not give wiggle room but makes it quite comfortable to wear for long periods.

The head is lined and the lining dries off quite quickly after any use.

I can breathe extremely well, with my mouth lining up directly with my own mouth. It is large enough to allow a neck fan to be put in the mouth to ventilate more when needed.

The vision on my suit is amazing. The middle blind spot is small enough to be mostly put out of focus by my eyes and my peripheral vision is not hindered. I can see through both eyes at the same time.

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

I am extremely satisfied with the outside appearance of my head. It is symmetrical and fits my character. And original was made and ready to fur, but my maker redid it to better suit my character.

The shaving is smooth and I love the varying lengths used.

The fur feels high quality and brushes well and can be smoothed by hand if in a rush.

The head matches the concept art extremely well, even down to the style. Markings were all accurate and symmetrical.

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.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The body fits well and allows for a wide range of movement. The digi padding doesn’t severely restrict me and I can squat and run while wearing it.

No seams have popped on the suit and I can move around without feeling at risk of any popping. It has been washed without any seams coming apart.

The interior is not lined, there is nothing inside the detracts from everything overall.

The suit is not hotter than usual. The padding allows airflow.

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

I am extremely satisfied with the body as well. Everything matches my character and they used multiple lengths of fur to make different areas pop.

The fur is soft and easily smoothed.

The colors were hard to find, but my maker worked hard to find matching colors. The longer gray is a lighter color from the rest, but because it is not super noticeable, I don’t mind and they asked if I would be fine with that beforehand.

The padding is extremely nice. I love the shape and it is exactly what I was looking for.

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.

The hands and feet are comfortable, though being so bulky lower dexterity. No cuffs show if I stretch and they stay on.

The padding in the hands is removable for washing but easy to put back in.

No claws have fallen off and the paws are still in good shape.

The shoes used a croc like shoe, which is comfortable but did not stay properly glued. The back part of the shoe came up from the foot, but it is still attached under the toes so it doesn’t effect my walking.

Both are lined with a lycra material.

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

The hands and feet both look very appealing. The claws are done in a glitter spandex and the paw pads are a fleece.

They show the paw pads on the bottom of the toe while still being outdoor feet, which I love.

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.

The physics on it are amazing and it bounces well and is small so it doesn’t restrict movement.

The seems haven’t popped but the strap tore once. The strap when then fixed by my maker the same day and has still held up.

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

The tail is longer on the underside and shaved on the top. This adds a lot of depth to the tail, especially since it is solid color. It matches the character and the length is nice. It bounces exactly how I would want it to.

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?

The costume matched my design exactly. The reference was done by Tribal, one of two people who make up FloofUnlimited. It didn’t cost extra and was done quickly.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything fits together well. The colors across pieces is consistent and everything goes together smoothly.

The padding is not choppy and you can’t even tell where the leg ends and foot begins.

It matches the style of the maker and fits in with the style when seen in group photos.

Overall Project Quality

I am super satisfied with my suit and the way it turned out. It exceeded expectations and seems like it will last for quite some time.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

It was extremely easy. I messaged them asking for a quote and they got back to me the same day. They were very responsive.

Maker Response Time

Throughout the commission process they kept in contact and gave frequent updates on what they were doing. They would send photos frequently as well and did streams where you could see them work on your suit.

Maker Professionalism

They were extremely pleasant to work with. They kept me informed on their schedule for each week and even if something personal popped up they didn’t use it as an excuse or feel the need to bring it up extensively.

Project Completion Time

There was a short queue, but I only waited 4 months for my suit to be started and they kept me informed where I was in the queue. I asked for Anthrocon completion upon initial contact and they met my requested date.
