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.

Nothing is too tight and nothing is loose, it’s a great fit. Vision is probably one of the best I’ve had in a foam based suit. It’s lined perfectly and ventilation is great it’s not too hard to breathe in and out of. I don’t have any problems with the head what so ever.

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

Marks were right where they were suppose to be with the right sizing. The fur feels amazing, very soft (a minky like material was used to get everything nice and even, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this material being used but I’m more than pleased with the results) her ears are the perfect size (which she had never done cabbit ears before).

The head’s overall look surpassed my expectations and matched perfectly with the image that I was trying to capture.

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 are very soft and a great fit (right size), they have a cuff around the wrist to keep them even so they don’t slide around or get caught on anything.

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

The ref sheet shows the paw pads to be a lot darker but I was going for a softer shade of grey and not a darker shade, we quickly sorted that out and she got to work on them, making them the right shade that I wanted to match with the character (some of the colours during production strayed from the ref sheet it was because I did need to update my ref sheet and she was happy to work around with the colours that I wanted to do)

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.

Comfortable to wear, Secure belt-loops aside from being stuffed a little stiff, it does stay in place, fluid movement and very well done, I enjoy how she did the tongue on the tail and how well it came out, I asked for a long tongue on the tail and it to not be a huge floor dagger and she took the measurements and it’s enough for it to not be a huge floor dagger. Very light weight more so than I was expecting.

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

Even shaved, Got all the markings right in place, did an amazing job expressing the tail it’s self, Matches the reference.

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

Special features was a mouth with teeth at the end of the tail (mouth tail) which she hadn’t done something like that before, she put magnets so it could open and close, It works nicely, not too heavy. Pretty fluid to the mouth opening and closing and the right amount of teeth we had discussed.

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 ref sheet was some what outdated so I worked with her to get the right colours together that I had vision wise. It matched the design despite some of the parts being different coloured (once again ref was a little outdated so we worked around it) so it matches exactly what I wanted. I visioned her to be toony and she made it exactly how I wanted it to look. I’m very satisfied with how it looks over all, I really love the ears she did them perfectly, I couldn’t ask for better when it comes to the visual of the suit despite some parts not matching the ref (we worked around it to get exactly what I wanted)

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Overall; Everything fits together, all the fleshy parts match the colours they’re suppose to match and they’re in the right spots, exactly where I wanted them to be, the black fabric is very fluid, 2 types of fabric were used and they were used in a fluid way so it captured the mane, head fluff and ears correctly, The markings are correct to the reference themselves, Each marking is not too big or not too small it’s consistent and matches in the right ways.

Overall Project Quality

Deadline was met, very friendly, Amazing quality absolutely stunned when I got her and it was perfect. She conducted amazing business manners with me, did treat me like a friend, worked very well with me and didn’t keep me in the dark about anything, asked my opinions and took into consideration what I had been saying and worked with me if I was trying to say something but wasn’t sure how to say it properly. Completely satisfied hands down. Will work with her again in the future! Deadline met, Expectations surpassed with flying colours. Can’t believe I didn’t commission her sooner with how nice she was to me and how efficient she is.

Maker Professionalism

I’ve done commissions in the past and most people I have commissioned have never asked much of my input on things but every step of the way I was sent photos, Asked about sizes of things and made sure placement was correct. She treated me amazing, very friendly. Did not give me any excuses as to why something couldn’t be done because we never had any of those problems.

Final Comments

She is very easy to work with, Have told all my friends if they like her style then jump on it because shes easy to talk to, she listens, Your opinion matters to her, if something isn’t done quite the way you like it she will go back and fix it if she needs to, which I had no problem explaining anything to her. Getting commissions can be a stressful experience even cause some bad anxiety and since she is there 100% of the way walking and talking you through (also sending video of placements) she is always working well with you. She doesn’t take on too many commissions or bite off more than she can chew if you do have to wait to commission her then you will have to wait because she knows what shes doing and won’t take on more than she knows she can’t handle. Amazing to work with and honestly going to work with her again, can’t wait for that! She listened to what I had to say, always took into consideration what I was feeling and if I had any anxiety actually worked with me to help me calm down out of my being anxious about things.
