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

The head fits very well, which is great considering the issues I had with resin-based heads. It is easy to slip right on with or without a balaclava and has a zipper that makes sure it stays snug while walking about. The one oddity is how it sits; the head tilts down otherwise I am unable to see. This was more of a design decision and it is something I am getting used to. Horns are surprisingly easy to handle as I was worried about too much weight on my neck. It does take a bit of getting use to so I don’t spear someone in the eyes but no accidents yet! The only problem I have come into is the zipper getting stuck in the fur on the head, making it nearly impossible to zip it up or down without some sort of assistance. However, this does not take much away of how happy I am with the suit!

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

Symmetry is pretty spot on, I do not see any issues with either side of the face being different than the other. I have only noticed one little spot of too close shaving but it isn’t noticeable unless someone is seriously looking for it. I have had no issues with markings rubbing off and the fur has stayed soft and intact. The maker had expression freedom and I am super happy with it! Depending on the way I am looking, some think I am angry, tilt a bit and suddenly I look maniacally smiling.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

Hands and arm sleeves fit perfectly. I love the addition to the soft fabric pads that add a bit of weight on each hand and make a nice, “thump” noise if you are drumming your fingers/claws on a hard surface. Definitely adds to expression and feel of the suit!

No complaints on either paws or sleeves, everything was well made!

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

The tail is BIG. Even though its size could cause issues, it was made with a lot of care and keeps its shape and bends out of the way if need be. The only issue I have come across is how heavy it can be on your waist. I have to wear a belt tight and had to notch a hole in the tails belt loop to fit on my jeans properly. Neither of those is a huge deal and I have come accustomed to the weight with use.

Tail matches the designs perfectly and definitely adds to the partial matching wise. No shaving or bleeding issues.
