HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The head is made of resin, it’s got a decent amount of weight to it, especially in the muzzle. The elastic straps were replaced with nylon and buckles to help support it. It does not have a lot of circulation, I purchased it with a small fan in it and I’m very glad I did. The visibility is better then most realistic heads I’ve tried.
The markings were perfect. The color is gorgeous and matches the tail I already had very well. The mohawk is thinner then I wanted, however, it works really well on a semi-realistic head. It’s symmetrical. the shaving was done very well, I love the short on the face and kept longer in the back. The fur is very short and easy to care for. the nose looks like a proper cats nose.
I’ve very satisfied with the overall look.
I opted for a moving jaw. The jaw is a movable jaw but does not move when talking. The Jaw requires a good amount of force and a fully open or “yawning” expression to open it.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
I love having a fursuit and wearing it to Cons. I’m so happy I chose to have one made.
I was under the impression that it would be a collab between SparklePup and Faruku, however, it ended up being mostly Sparklepup with the use of Faruku’s eyes and jaw set. SparklePup was new to fursuit making and the resin cast used for my head was one of her first, therefore I did not know what the overall shape or look would be(I was pleasantly surprised).
I would recommend both makers in the future. However, I would not recommend a resin or realistic head unless the circulation and weight issues have been addressed. I would not recommend a moving jaw, unless different springs or pivot point is engineered.
