I cannot begin to describe how comfortable and light weight this head is. As a foam toony head it’s very comfortable, the head is not lined – this actually makes cleaning it a lot easier. It’s a comfortable fit, not too tight anywhere and not too loose. The ventilation is excellent, the jaw is incredibly flexible and I am able to drink from a bottle without having to take the head off. The air circulates nicely, the eyes are a good size and the mouth a good size which means getting cool air in and hot air out is really good. The vision in both my blue fox fursuits heads is excellent, there is barely any blind spot.
I absolutely love how this head looks! I wanted something quite sassy, a different expression to my other heads, but I didn’t want grumpy specifically. I feel like Dasker nailed this, by having the ears back a little, the half lidded eyes and yet the usual shaped mouth/jaw it’s everything I had imagined. I did go over to Daskers to help make this head as we are friends from when I commissioned him back in 2011, and he was more than happy to let me decide on every little detail. This is something he does offer to all his clients, allowing them to decide on ear shape as an example, whether physically with him or not.
The head is beautifully symmetrical, and the shaving is also spot on. I did get a return customer discount on this head, but Dasker is still one of the cheaper makers out there, yet with 10 years making suits professionally these are still some of the highest quality suits I’ve come across. The fur was the exact same batch used on my first head that he had stored away for 7 years which blew my mind somewhat, meaning it is literally from the same cut as my old head. I was incredibly pleased by this!
The markings were done in a darker red fur rather than painted on this time and I love that, it means it’s really soft and flush with the rest of the fur. The larger eyelashes were an experiment and I love how much this makes the head look feminine and sassy. Dasker also tried out an interchangeable tongue, so she does have a short one and a long one that I can swap out, another feature I adore!
Having made my original fursuit head Dasker knew the character already, and did not actually need concept art – he nailed the design purely from memory, and that touch of remembering each and every character is really nice. He could have simplified the eye markings as they are a little fiddly but he didn’t, making sure I was 100% happy with the shape.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Overalll I feel honored to have work from this maker, and to own multiple heads from him. I will be returning for a bodysuit in the future, I aim to have the full suit made by him rather than made of pieces by me and others. If you want a good priced, well made suit from the UK I cannot recommend Blue Fox Fursuits highly enough.
