HEAD

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your costume.

Head is extremely comfortable, fits snugly.

Has great ventilation and a fan built into the muzzle, fan has USB cord to connect to battery pack which can be cumbersome but worth it.

Blind spot is normal for any suit! Wide range of vision through large eyes.

Head is fully lined with lycra.

Appearance Satisfaction

Symmetry is perfect, has a very adorable expression.

Shaving is top notch. Very even and smooth, transitions look awesome.

I adore the head so much, it matches the art perfectly and the expression is very adorable. He also has a plastic halo attached by small pieces of plastic wire to the ears, it bounces when I nod or walk! Definitely above and beyond.

All of it is completely machine sewed and even after my heavy and rough usage, hasn’t had any tears or seams popping.

Stuffed vinyl claws make an adorable and toony style on my feet! They are very large and stompy, which I love. The fur is shaved perfectly, they are very soft. The vinyl pawpaws are very even and lovely. They are durable and comfy to wear!

One of the things I asked for specifically was a tail that didn’t drag and that’s exactly what I got! sits nicely above my ankles and is not heavy or cumbersome at all. No tears, very nice. Strapping is nylon and will not come loose even if tugged.
