Relationship With Maker

The maker is NOT a friend

Prior Experience

This is my first full digitigrade drop crotch suit. However, I’ve owned a partial and a different head in the past.

Informed Maker of Issues

Yes. She’d missed some markings so I just had her fix them. I also told her about how the body did not quite fit properly and wasn’t easy for me to wear. She did offer to fix it, but I decided against it since I decided to just wear the body with a different head.

Wear Time

At MOST maybe 10 hours (body only) The head I’ve only worn for maybe an hour at most.

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

Wearing the head is okay. It gets hot very quickly because the mouth has no ventilation. It’s even hotter when I have on the kemono dome eyes. The eyes are made of a mesh from a craft store rather than buckram, and they’re also white, so it’s pretty hard to see out of. It’s a zipper head, and rather hard to zip up with all of the fur, but that’s not that big of an issue. On the inside is a baseball hat that you can adjust to secure the fursuit head to your head. It’s a nice feature since it keeps the head from slipping down. However, when I got it, it did have a pin in it. The pin was facing the other way, though so there’s no way I could’ve gotten stabbed or anything. It wasn’t a hazard to my health is what I’m trying to say. The neck is completely lined, as is the inside of the head and the nostrils of the plush nose. The eyes are removable, and pop in easily, but the left glossy eye is hard to get in, and often falls out.

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

As for the head, I’m honestly not very fond of it. I don’t see my character when I look at it, and compared to her other heads, it’s just not up to par in my opinion. The symmetry is a bit off in the mouth, and honestly the head kind of looks funny. I did approve the foam base, thinking the muzzle would’ve been a bit longer than what it appeared to be. She sent pictures of the foam base and after the furring, which is when I had to get those markings fixed. The inside of the mouth has “gums” and looks nice. I honestly like it, but it makes the ventilation awful. There was some threads sticking out, but I can easily trim them.

The fur is luxury shag and I picked it out and provided all links to. It’s soft and nice to touch. The shaving is really nice and smooth.

The expression of the head isn’t really what I was going for. In my opinion it’s hard to tell the expression of the head.

Expression Idea

Overall it matches the art I sent but I just don’t see this head really representing my character.

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

The eyes are removable, and pop in easily, but the left glossy eye is hard to get in, and often falls out. The matte eyes are fine, so I’d rather wear those. We agreed on some jewelry and a fan in the head, but she forgot them completely.

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 digitigrade drop crotch body has attached hands which I requested and attached feet which she told me she always does for a seamless look. Upon first getting my suit, it was a bit hard to actually get on. I expected that, being that this is my first time ever wearing a body. However, I quickly found it was hard to lift my arms all of the way or bend down. My duct tape dummy was accurate. We even cut the areas in the armpits to get an exact fit. It still may be partially my fault as I didn’t pose in a “T pose”. I posed in a way that had my arms down, but I don’t think that should’ve been an issue. The maker didn’t exactly specify a pose, I just followed the one done in the video linked. It’s lined in the arms, in the legs and in the neck. The legs are lined so the stuffing doesn’t spill out, but I may have to sew it soon since some of it has come undone. Other than that, the seams are pretty strong, despite me having a hole in the black part of the left arm after the second wear. The zipper is in the front and has a holographic ribbon for me to pull up and down to zip myself up. It’s very handy and would be easy to hide if I hadn’t chose to get attached hands. It’s very easy to zip up and not very visible if I brush it. There is stuffing in the legs and back of the suit.

I can’t bend down or lift my arms past my head or anything. The legs do limit movement, which is expected. Overall the wear satisfaction is about a 5/10. It’s not as bad as it could be, but it’s not super pleasant to wear with the extremely limited movement. I can’t really do poses like squatting ones or anything, which I used to absolutely love doing and fit my character.

I’m satisfied with the attached feet, but I wouldn’t go for attached hands again. That’s not the fault of the maker, it’s my fault.

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

As far as the body goes, it does look okay. I didn’t like how the digitigrade actually looked at first, but it looks better when I have on a different head. It’s sort of grown on me. The back of the feet do look kind of odd in my opinion, and the pink sharpie/marker the maker used shows through because the suit’s feet are mainly white. I don’t like how choppy the shaving is on the feet. I didn’t get pictures of the whole body until after it was done and shipped to me. Overall the appearance is nice, it’s just how uncomfortable to wear that mainly effects me. I dislike how low the crotch is, and wish it was a little higher.

The tail is nice to wear, but hard to get on. I have to have a SUPER long belt to put it on.

Looks great, nothing really wrong with it or anything aside from some threads sticking out.

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 well does everything fit together and match up?

The head looks a bit odd with the body. The body looks better when I have on the other head.

The body looks fine alone, but is hard for me to wear as previously stated. I can’t bend down, squat, or lift my arms. I can only lift my legs up past a certain point, most likely because of the drop crotch.

Overall Project Quality

I don’t feel like the head was exactly “up to par” with the maker’s previous heads or projects. It wasn’t really what I was expecting. The body is okay.

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

Initial Contact

Fairly easy to contact the maker and I was quickly responded to

Maker Response Time

Very satisfied. Very quick response time. All through one media

Maker Professionalism

Very satisfied. Maker was very kind, very professional, not at all mean or hard to talk to.

Project Completion Time

I’m satisfied, it was super fast. The shipping was fine, but it was storming where she was so I didn’t mind waiting for my suit to be shipped.

Final Comments

The customer service is great. Badger is kind and professional. I would not recommend her due to the body not fitting and the head not really being the quality I expected. I think she could do so much better. Her customer service is great, shipping was fast, suit was done fast. It’s just that one area that needs improvement.

Please don’t harass the maker. I will request that this be deleted if she starts getting harassed. This is for her to IMPROVE not to cause her to be hurt or anything of the like what so ever. She offered to fix everything for FREE and pay shipping. She even offered to send the fur to me or to another maker if they’re fixing it.
