Ahh she’s really nice, but im not biased!

Do you have any prior experience with fursuits?
Nope, this is my first fursuit, however I’ve been researching them for 5 years, so I think I have a good grasp as to how they should be quality wise.

FURSUIT HEAD
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the fursuit. If you are reviewing only a set of ears, your answers would also go in this section.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your fursuit.
Are you satisfied with how it fits you? How is the ventilation? How is the vision?

-Are you satisfied with how it fits you?

I am very satisfied. I asked her to be built for glasses and the head fits perfectly! I also found out that even without the glasses, it fits great! The inside is lined with a suuuuper smooth material that keeps my face cool with or without a balaclava (though I usually wear her with one)

-How is the ventilation?

Amazing. I can breathe very very well and I never feel like I have breathing problems. The hole in the mouth Is also big enough for me to fit a water bottle and drink easily! The eyes also provide ventilation!

-How is the vision?

There is a blind spot about the size of my hand but I can see well in front of me from either eyes! I do have to turn my head a tiny bit to see my surroundings but not very much!

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your fursuit piece looks from the outside.
How is the symmetry? Is the shaving even? How does the fur feel and look? How satisfied are you with the overall expression and appearance of the head? Does it match the concept art?

-How is the symmetry?

Symmetry is very, very nice. I love it. If you look veeery closely, the teeth are just the TINIEST bit asymmetrical, but barely! I also noticed that one ear is slightly smaller than the other. The eyebrows are also a bit asymmetrical but none of this is visible at all to anybody who isnt looking for mistakes!

-Is the shaving even?

Shaving is really nicely done! The transition from the dark brown on the ears to the pink looks a little off, as if the brown is too long but there is a good reason for this. That pink color was nearly impossible to find and the only kind we were able to find online was a very small amount, and seemingly of a different fur quality than the rest of the suit. I do not blame the maker for this, we tried very hard to look for the right color and I think she did a great job working with what we had!

-How does the fur feel and look?

Everything is soft. <3

-How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?

Oh my god I could not be happier! I asked LazyLupe to make her as happy and as excited as she could, basically “ridiculously adorable” and I think she delivered! I can definitely achieve different expressions, and the eyes are follow me, but sometimes look static, which provides for a large variety of different expressions!

-Does it match the concept art?
It matches perfectly to a T-… except for one small part. I remember asking my maker if she could add spots to the back of her ears (one spot on each ear) and she happily agreed. However, Im not sure that she looked at my ref sheet correctly, because the spots she put on the ears were black. They’re supposed to be dark blue, the same color blue as her spots (the blue against the teal). Kayno has no black on her body at all, the darkest fur she has is the dark blue. However this doesn’t bother me that much now that I actually have her. I kindof wish she could have shown me the back of the head when she asked if I would like any changes, though!

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your head has.
What are they and how do they work? How easy are they to wear? How is the quality?

Kayno has plush horns on her head and they are very sturdy :)

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Pros- What can I say, she made a huge part of me come to life. I can’t thank her enough for that. Im very proud to call myself a LazyLupe fursuiter!

Cons- Sometimes wish we could have talked more thoroughly on certain aspects, and WIP pictures (as part of her ToS) are not given, however I would have liked to have seen at least what fur colors would be used on the parts of the head I was not aware of.

Final Comment: For anyone who wants a suit for a great price and with great quality (Plus an ADORABLE style) and from a very professional maker, LazyLupe is who I recommend! :)
