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

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.

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

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.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

This head matches up to my current body suit perfectly. As mention the batch of fur was the same as my old head, which means it was the closest fit I could have ever had. The seams are flawless, and all sewn, and the neck is nice a long to make sure no gaps will be seen between the body and head. The head is consistent with his style, which as you can imagine over the last 7 years has improved and is what made me want a new one – I did not commission because the old one was not in action anymore, it is still almost like new despite 100s of hours of wear – but purely because I love how his style has come along! And he didn’t let me down because this head fits right in with the style.

Overall Project Quality

I’m so happy with this product! As a long term customer of Blue Fox Fursuits I have always been a fan of his work and I believe his work is worth a lot more than he charges. This head ticks all the boxes for me and as an added bonus, the “fursuit family” of other Blue Fox Fursuiters is wonderful and welcoming.

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

Initial Contact

i speak to Dasker on Telegram but he advertises openings on twitter, so I just filled out a form and we carried on the rest via email and telegram. He also has a Blue Fox Fursuits chat on there in which when you have paid your deposit you can be added to it – I was already in this and could contact him there too.

Maker Response Time

Very happy, response was basically immediate.

Maker Professionalism

Very happy, Dasker keeps his clients well informed of anything that may cause any delays, and of any steps happening with their suits. I was able to see every step of mine, and had a lot of input, as well as a lot of fun! Dasker is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Project Completion Time

Also very happy, the head was made exactly when stated. I had it in plenty of time before Confuzzled as I had asked. The head itself was finished within just a few days, and I simply took the head home with me from his place. I have helped Dasker ship other heads out, and can confirm the postage prices are very reasonable to the UK.

Final Comments

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.
