Prior Experience

Yes, this is my 26th fursuit 🙂

Informed Maker of Issues

There really were no issues with the suit. The only thing I noticed was inside one of the paws the pocket for the stuffing (puffy pads) wasn’t closed but 5 minutes and 3 stitches later I fixed it. It really was a non issue for me anyway haha

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.

oh wow.. first of all I want to say this head is roomy yet doesn’t slip around my face.. its quite comfortable and vision is excellent. The mouth lines up exactly with mine and allows for breathing and easy access to water/beverages with a straw (or a water bottle). The fur is extremely soft and the shaving is very even. The ears have a lovely waggle to them and are really expressive! The hair poof/mane like fur is extremely long flowing and soft to the touch. It really makes the character stand out. The head does have removable eyelids that attach via velcro to the existing “lashes” which gives the ability to have unique expressions. I did find at first that the eyelids wouldn’t stick very well but learned quickly that a quick jostle of the eyelids to the existing lashes causes the velcro to stick MUCH better and more securely! (For future however I would recommend using ‘rare earth magnets’ they seem to hold a bit better!)

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

love the appearance! I think the suit is incredibly bouncy playful and unique its what drew me to her in the first place!! the markings seem pretty uniform on the face even with the minimal markings.

Again, all fur is shaved down evenly, there’s no exposed backing or glue to be found on the outside of the suit! On the inside the seams are very well done, neat and clean/finished, overall very well done suit.

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

The removable eyelids are quite unique and fun, but as I stated above I wish there were held on with magnets (rare earth magnets) instead of velcro so I might just make a few adjustments myself for that just for peace of mind.

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.

Hands are SUPER plush and soft! the pads are stuffed for an extra cute effect too! they’re incredibly comfortable and don’t slip off my hands at all. As I mentioned above on one of the paws (on the inside) a seam wast finished where the stuffing was inserted in for the puffy effect. It was a non issue for me as I just inverted the paw and did a quick stitch to close off the piece.

Adorable! the paws are poofy squishy and cute! I believe its minky fur used so its extra soft and plush!!

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.

Tail is super cute and waggable! It attaches via a single belt loop and has a lovely sway/swing to it. Its loosely stuffed so its very lovely! My single gripe about the tail is the strap to attach it to the belt is like.. acrylic braid binding (commonly used for collars) and it wasn’t “sealed” prior to being cut and attached to the tail so it did begin to unravel a little bit.

Nothing a hot knife to melt it together couldn’t fix but just food for thought!

Mars was lovely to work with, and their skill level was worth the price paid. I feel very confident in this maker and their suit provided to me. My experience was wonderful and I hope to see more work from Mars. Mars even provided a reference sheet and a character badge upon purchase (badge to be mailed out after the con).
