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?

The hood fits well, it’s baggy because it’s supposed to be a huge kigu hood.

The expression on it is PERFECT and shows off Riot’s grumpy attitude! The embroidery is also nicely done! The hood even has a nice green fabric lining the inside which i thought was a nice touch.

It’s also not too baggy it obscures vision as I work in a warehouse and I was allowed to wear it for the company halloween dress up day as we can only wear hoods that don’t obstruct peripheral vision.

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?

The symmetry is PERFECT! Everything is symmetrical and his exression is the same as shown on the reference sheet! The expression is cool too, just like the concept art so it shows off his grumpy nature.

BODYSUIT
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the body of the fursuit.
If you are reviewing armsleeves or legs/pants that are seperate from a bodysuit, your answers would also go in this section.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the body fits? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like? How is the airflow?

The body of the kigu is very comfortable and soft, and very very warm. I love the oversized buttons and the fact my kigu has lined pockets. The markings and seams are very clean and match to the concept art and the lightning bolt is in the middle of his back!

The kigu fits baggy as it’s supposed to and it’s really easy to move around in. It’s like a giant warm blanket.

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 selection of colors and materials used?

The symmetry is perfect and everything lines up! The markings match the concept art perfectly and the seams are all clean.

The colors were perfect and I was given the chance to see the fabric selection before anything was even started! That was pretty cool of them to do!

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your bodysuit has. This includes UV reactivity, EL wire, uniquely placed squeakers or padding, clothing made specifically for the fursuit, or anything that is sewn into the bodysuit.
What are the features and how do they work? How easy are they to wear? How is the quality?

I got the added paw mittens with my kigu and I can say they do get a bit annoying after a while as they just flop there if they’re not on your hands. They get in the way if I’m doing anything so I generally have to roll the sleeves up or pin the paws back. They are seriously cute though, I only wish they came with the option to remove them if need be.

The mittens fit perfectly and are soft and lined on the inside. They’re also light and sit just on the edge of the wrist.

The kigu also has a little stuffed husky tail that dangles cutely from the bottom. It’s not too big that it gets in the way when I sit and doesn’t bother me at all when walking! Very cute!

HANDS AND FEET
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the hands and feet of the fursuit.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like?

The little paw mittens fit nicely, I only wish they were removable as stated before. I knew this when buying that they weren’t though! Just something I wished after wearing the kigu for a while.

Cute little tail attached to the back of the kigu! It’s got a husky curl and it’s not big enough to be a bother when i sit down!
