HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, 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.

The suit head fits fantastic. It is snug but very comfortable and does not move when I shake my head or move.

The outside fabric is very soft and the lining inside works wonderfully. Absorbs sweat great and vision is quite clear. The suit also has a third eye that offers extra ventilation.

I have taken the suit to multiple conventions and it has held up very well. So far the head has only lost one single whisker, no other wear and tear.

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

The symmetry and general appearance of the product is outstanding. The expression is lovely and just as I had asked. The head matches my concept art wonderfully. Could not be happier!

This head features foam horns as well as a third eye.

The horns have done amazing as far as wear. I have had no issues with them bending or falling apart. Very sturdy! The third eye looks excellent and provides extra ventilation (a plus!). Very high quality work on both of them, very pleased.

Head also has magnetic eyelids for different expressions! They work great and stay on very well.

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.

The body of my suit is spectacular. I am quite small (5’2″/120lb) and the suit fits amazing. She hugs my body but is not too tight at all. Like a second skin! She features a very easy to use front zipper as well as removable padding for easy washing. The padding is easily stuffed into the thighs/hips/butt of the suit. The padding prevents some airflow but overall the suit does not suffocate me and I can wear it for quite a long time.

The arm length of the suit was an issue at first (a little too short) but it was easily repaired and returned to me quickly.

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

I am super pleased with the shape and look of the suit. Fur is so super soft and the colors are perfect. Originally the suit was going to be one solid color but while talking with my maker we both decided that adding longer fur (which would not perfectly match my original fur color) would give the suit a very good look, and it did!

I was given swatches to confirm which furs I would want on my suit before work began, and I was super happy with that!

The suit features extra padding on the breasts which are sewn into the bodysuit. They are very symmetrical, soft, and look quite natural on the suit… which I am incredibly pleased with! They make my suit feel much more natural on me as a person with breasts and feminine features.

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.

The hands and feet are both very soft and well constructed. I did have one foot that had a tiny bit of separation from the bottom foam but it was a super easy fix with a hot glue gun.

Paws feature 4 fingers and 4 white claws. The paw pads are super soft minky fur and they feel great to touch. The hand paws fit and stay on perfectly. The feet paws also fit well and they stay nice and cool. I’ve never noticed them getting too hot too fast.

Both the hand and feet paws have held up very well overtime. The stitching in the hand paws, indoor feet, and outdoor feet are lovely and have had no issues from them!

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

The appearance of the hand paws are really great. They feature puffy paw pads that make wearing really enjoyable. Colors on both the feet and hands match 100% and really makes the suit come together.

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 worn with a belt and is a tad heavy but not more than I would have expected. It does drag the ground but it is pretty easy to clean. It also features a hand loop to hold onto so it doesn’t always have to drag the floor.

My tail is detachable from the suit and is quite long. It does drag the floor a bit! It matches my provided concept art perfectly and is exactly as I had imagined it would be. Fur length is great and it is really easy to clean despite it being a light color.

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

The is very long and often touches the ground. My maker and I decided that a loop for my hand to go through would be a very useful tool to help prevent the tail from being caught in anything or becoming dirty. The tail also has a Y like split at the end. Super happy with how it looks! Very much like my concept art. It could not be any more accurate.

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

In the form I filled out I originally asked for the suit to be exactly as the ref I provided. After talking through a few things with my maker we both decided on what would make the suit look and come together best. We decided to scrap the idea of a lilac purple in the ears and go for a warm pink. The light purple would not stand out much against her already light colored fur. We also both thought the suit would look good with a mixture of long and shirt fur instead of just one length. These are things we both decided on together.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The whole suit came together once all the pieces were on. The fit, look, and shape of everything together was great. Absolutely look as it was the same quality (if not better) than what I had originally imagined from this maker. Totally blown away!

Overall Project Quality

I could not be happier with what I have received. It is a fantastic product and I highly recommend this maker.

Initial Contact

Initial contact was incredibly smooth and quick. I contacted them through email and got my quote in and heard back from them promptly.

The maker made a small list of things they needed from me which were quite easy and quickly done (DTD, hand size, foot size)

Maker Response Time

Every once in a while I would have a hard time getting in contact with my maker but once work was started on my suit response times were much much faster. We talked through email, twitter, and mainly telegram.

Maker Professionalism

Final Comments

Aside from occasional communication issues I had a fantastic time working with this maker. I highly recommend them and cannot praise their work enough. When my suit was started we walked through the whole process together as a team. If I had any issues or concerns I addressed them and they were taken care of! I still ask for advice from my maker on how to care for my suit best and they are always happy to reply to me and give me more knowledge on suiting. Would absolutely work with them again!!
