HEAD
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the costume. 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 costume.
Are you satisfied with how it fits you? How is the ventilation? How is the vision?

Head is a little loose, I think a size smaller would have been perfect. Moving my head around I can feel the head slipping and lagging behind me. This gets especially annoying as it would push my balaclava in front of my eyes. Since fixed by pinning the balaclava to my under armor!

Ventilation wasn’t too great as the head was too big for me to open the jaw with my mouth alone. I brought it up with MFL and they showed me how to sew it open, so now the ventilation is amazing!

Vision is really really good! Very small blind spot in the middle.

Markings wise is perfect! Though they were going to give me a black nose had I not caught it in a WIP.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume 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?

Symmetry is fine, only small issues like an odd raised bump on the side of the snout and one cheek comes higher onto one eye than the other.

Shaving is perfect besides that strange bump.

The expression and appearance of the head could not be better! Absolutely perfect and can pull of a range of expressions, especially with the moving eyebrows.

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?

This was MFL’s first time working with LEDs so I knew it was going to be a gamble. All LEDs stopped working after my first con (4 months after owning the suit), with the ones in the hands breaking after my first wear. The whiskers technically still work, but the whiskers themselves have since fallen out slowly (probably pulled by kids I didn’t see). I have replaced them but haven’t been able to get them into the exact spots the old ones were.

BODYSUIT
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the body of the costume.
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 costume.
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 fit of the bodysuit is definitely the best fitting part of this suit. Absolutely perfect, nice and snug while still allowing plenty of movement.
Strangely the sleeves got shorter over time but I’ve had them extended to fix that.
The neck is lined with a nice minky-like material so it is very soft and comfortable. Interior appears neat, but I haven’t seen the inside of many other bodysuits.

I’ve had issues with the zip coming down on its own while suiting, fixed via attaching a clasp to the top of the suit to attach the zip to.

Seams also pop often, mainly after a wash. Simple fix so it doesn’t bother me too much.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume 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?

Symmetry is perfect! And I don’t think there was any shaving done on the bodysuit. Just different length furs.

The markings were almost perfect. The main thing they missed was that the white parts on the knees were supposed to be swishes but they did them as just straight points. The rest were just small things like the back swishes should have been pointed on each end rather than starting flat, and the white on the backs of the arms are flat rather than arcing around.

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 costume, 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?

There is padding sewn into the shoulder blades and calves, the knee padding is not attached and just sits against your legs when you wear it. It is extremely comfortable and doesn’t restrict your movement whatsoever. Really impressive.

My only issue is in one leg the calf padding goes a bit funky and sticks out to the side when I wear it. I’ve had someone a smidge larger than me in the suit and the digigrade looked absolutely perfect and beautiful. So sizing issue maybe? Haven’t managed to find a fix for it yet.

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

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

I got 2 pairs of feet; a large roo-like pair and a smaller practical pair.
The large ones are too big and extremely front heavy so it is very easy to just kick them off. Fixed it by putting a pair of flats in the feet to take up some space. But otherwise they are extremely comfortable and extremely high quality. They’re like wearing slippers.
The main issue I had with these was I ordered outdoor feet and I got indoor feet. Unfortunately I didn’t bring it up with them as I was new to fursuits and thought they were some magical outdoor feet that looked as awesome as indoor feet. When I realised, I didn’t bring it up with them as I didn’t want to cause a fuss. Lesson learned! Since had another maker convert them to outdoor feet for me.

The smaller pair fits perfectly, and is equally as high quality and comfortable. Plus was actually outdoor feet.

I also got 2 pairs of hands; a pair of 4 fingered toony puffy paws, and a pair of 5 fingered practical paws with escapable holes for my fingers.

The 4 fingered paws are very floppy and large. I had mentioned that my hands were smaller than average but they assured me it would be fine. Personally I would have much rathered to have them made a size or two smaller. Besides that they are extremely comfortable.

The 5 fingered pair is a much better fit. Still would prefer a bit smaller to be perfect, but still fits. Unfortunately seams pop in between the fingers very often. Usually one seam pops after each wear. But still very comfy!

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume pieces look 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?

Appearance wise everything is perfect! I have only had one major issue; the claws. The claws are made of a vinyl material that is not durable in the slightest. Only after a few wears on the big feet they became all torn up from the tips and looked horrific. Regretting ordering plush claws on the feet. Had another maker replace them with resin claws for me.

The claws on the smaller pair are raised so they haven’t gotten as torn as the ones on the big feet, but they are definitely still slightly shredded on the tips. The claw on the heels are very shredded.

Fortunately this hasn’t been an issue with my paws. The 4 fingered paws have these same claws and are still perfectly fine. However my 5 fingered paws, I ordered those ones to not have any claws but they ended up with resin claws…? They look and function fine and I wasn’t fussed about it, was just strange.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your hands or feet have. This includes UV reactivity, EL wire, uniquely placed squeakers or padding, or any special articulation.
This can also include special ways of attachment to the bodysuit if they were not described elsewhere, such as: special hands with holes, magnet attachment, etc.
What are the features and how do they work? How easy are they to wear? How is the quality?

No other special features in the feet.

The 4 fingered paws had LEDs in them, but those quickly fell apart after my first couple of wears. The battery pack was too cumbersome to stay velcro’d to the inside of the paw, and the wires were loose among my hands so they just ripped apart.

TAILS
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the tail(s) of the costume.

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your costume.
How satisfied are you with how the tail(s) fit? How is the quality and durability?

The tail is AMAZING. They use a large, thick kidney belt to support the tail and it feels incredible. Very natural and doesn’t feel heavy in the slightest. It is also a foam based tail, making it nice and light.

Over time the tail started coming away from the belt as it was only glued on. Since been re-glued and sewn on.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
No other comments, mainly just kicking myself for not bringing up all the issues with MFL. The only con was that I would have liked more WIPs, then I might have been able to catch that they were making indoor instead of outdoor feet. Otherwise they are extremely awesome makers that I would highly recommend working with, as long as you’re not too ridiculously picky about your markings!
