I did not tell the maker about the lack of ventilation. I did tell the maker about the tail being quite small. I did ask the maker about the lack of receiving the feetpaws and armsleeves. Still have not received them as of writing this review.

0 Hours. I cannot wear it for more than a minute due to lack of ventilation.

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.

Very difficult to breath in the head due to lack of ventilation. Only wore for about 30 seconds at a time, maybe 2 or 3 times.

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

The head is very cute visually but the fur that was used is cheap / not the same fur that was shown to me when I agree’d upon what would be used. Visually the head is accurate based on my reference sheet, minus the eyebrows that my reference does not have.

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

The head has a moving jaw, it doesn’t work well as the head doesn’t fit me properly.

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 handpaws are poorly made and feel clumsy. I never received the feet.

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

The handpaws are poorly made / feel very rough due to low quality fur being used. Also because of the lack of padding they look bad when being worn. Never received the feet.

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.

Haven’t worn the tail.

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

The tail looks good visually and the blue fur is nice. The tail is much smaller than I would have liked.

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?

The make was pretty close to the concept art minus the colors. The head does not have eyebrows.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The fur matches up but is not the same fur that I agree’d upon initially. The colors are not even correct.

Overall Project Quality

The quality of the fur is very poor. It feels very rough and sheds a lot. When wearing the mask I am constantly getting lose fur in my eyes and mouth due to the shedding. The fur is rough to the touch and not at all satisfying.

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

Initial Contact

Initial contact was very easy, emailed the maker through their business email and they contacted me back pretty quickly.

Maker Response Time

Initially before payment the response time was great. During getting everything agree’d upon in terms of filling out the email form and the specifications. After that response time went way down hill.

Maker Professionalism

The maker was very professional in terms of written communication, minus the massive amount of excuses for why emails were not sent and also why communication was poor.

Project Completion Time

I am not satisfied at all with the completion time of the project. Upon initial agreement the maker promised it would be done for Furrydelphia, it was not. Furrydelphia came and went, then it was “ready” and supposed to be shipped to me during Anthrocon. This also did not happen. Did not receive until October 5th.
