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

The fursuit head fits my head perfectly. Tight enough that it does feel like its falling off, but loose enough that i can slide my head out without undoing the zipper if need to in case of an emergency.

I can breath well even with my balaclava on. Any fursuit head gets hot, but the air circulation is very well thought of when the head was made. I do not overheat while fursuiting for long periods of time.

The vision is almost flawless. I have no issues not walking into people or objects because I can see them without the LED lights on.
With the lights on, within brightly lit rooms vision become a bit cloudy but the LED lights are super cool and I can see if outside in the evening/night or in a not very bright room.

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

The overall attitude of this character it grumpy. When I gave them that description, i could not have asked for a better fursuit expression. This is one of my favorite fursuit heads i have had. They absolutely took to heart the character itself. They matched every detail on the concept art from the hair to the horns.
The fur on the head is as soft to the touch as the bodysuit, its easy to brush out, and they matched the concept art with her hair as well.

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

The horns on the head were custom made. They are made out of a vinyl like plastic which is soft enough this if i hit someone it wouldn’t hurt to much, but still is thick and solid enough to keep the for of the horns. They are tight against the head to prevent (as much as possibly) people grabbing and pulling on them.
The LED lights in the eyes are the best thing that I had put into the head. They really give off the attitude I wanted from the character.
There is also a fan built into the muzzle of the head. The fan is only small but still put out air which keep the interior of the head cool while suiting.
The earring are custom made for the suit. They are only hot glued of and have come off once already but was a easy quick fix.

The head is a bit heavier than usual due to the extra electronic components but not to heavy that it causes strain on my neck or makes wearing it uncomfortable.

The only issue with the suit I have had is upon taking off and putting on the head, one of the battery packs did pull away from the foam in the head as it was only hot glued in. It was not a major issue and even though I did inform the maker, it was not a necessity to send the suit back for complete repair.

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.

Yes. The bodysuit fits amazingly. Not too loose that the crotch is around my ankles, but not to tight that i have no free movement in the suit. It fits comfortably enough that i can also wear my EZ Cool vest and still have full range of movement in my suit.
I wore the body suit for an entire convention. With my previous suit after checking the bodysuit post con, there were minor seam pops from fursuit activities, ie running, jumping, sitting, etc. This this suit there were 0. None. Which proves the stitching quality that goes into the suit.

The digigrade padding are fairly difficult to get in and keep in. I need help in order to put them in and occasionally to push the lower one back into the suit.

The spots on the suit match the concept art amazingly all the way through to the tail. The combination of long and short fur give off the nice appearance and are flow together smoothly.
The fur is easily brushed to look super smooth and is very soft to touch.
The suit makers went out of their way to give me a few samples of close colours to concept are for me to choose from. I am absolutely in love with the colours that were choose by both myself and makers.
The spots were simplified slightly but still match the concept art to an extent. I am very happy with the overall out come of the body suit.

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.

I have small hand and the hand paws fit like a glove. I can easily grab things (of decent size) without feeling like they are going to slip off. I can also easily open doors with handles.
My hooves, where they are a bit difficult to get on, once they are on they are very comfortable to wear. I worse them for at least 6-7 hours straight without any discomfort.

The hand paws are made of the same stitching quality as the body suit. Strongly sewn together and not easy to pop seams.
The hooves are made of a heavy duty plastic, which honestly i was unsure of at first. But upon wearing them I love them. I have knocked the front of the hooves against stairs and chairs already and you cant even tell. I have walked both inside and outside and they have all stayed in one piece, no cracks, just minor wear and tear scratches on the bottom. They are super light which is also unexpected.

The interior of the hand paws is comfortable. They do have finger padding and the seams to not jam into or rub between the fingers.
The interior of the hooves are made of slippers so its squishy. Like i said prior to the only difficult part is getting my foot past the ankle padding into the slipper.

I absolutely love how the hooves look and how they sound when I walk over hard floors. People defiantly hear me coming their way! The puffy paws also add a nice volume to the paws since i myself do have small hands.

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

The hooves tare completely custom made from scratch. They were not pre made and are made from great quality.

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 tail is a great length for my body height. It does not drag on the floor or feel to heavy to wear. The way it attached to the body suit did confuse me at first, and i thought it was a mistake. But my friend cleared up how it was meant to attach and i actually really like it. It one tail loop and two slits in the body suit, which allows the belt to pull the tail right up to the body suit making it look connected. It eliminates the need for a tail sleeve.

They kept the long and short fur combination all the way through the tail and it gives the tail a nice full appearance.
