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.

Good ventilation ever since head refurbished April 2017 (now includes mouth opening).
Head was made on balaclava base, was tight on initial wearing but maker assisted with direction on how to adjust same to my head size upon delivery.
Vision is good, no large blind spots and lack of peripheral vision as expected.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume piece looks from the outside.

Appearance is symmetrical with fur evenly shaved. The head has airbrushed markings by the outer corners of the eyes and the freckles on either side of the snout. The fur in these areas still feels soft and smooth and has no bleeding.
I am happy with the head expression. It reflects the character’s mannerisms very well, and the concept art. The eyes were initially static but later changed to follow-me when the maker refurbished the mouth per my request.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your head has.

Fursuit head has whisker attachments on each side of the snout. Clear whiskers are difficult to see in wide photography shots but aesthetically pleasing when viewed in person. Placement is good, being symmetrical on each side, and have shown no sign of coming loose despite wear and storage.

Hand paws have inner lining that matches the character’s bright markings, edge of lining will show if I stretch my arms up over my head.

Describe your experience. What were the pros and cons of working with this maker? And any final comments?
Maker was very good with communication from the start. They clarified all markings as I described before creating concept art and giving quote. Maker is local and was able to provide test fitting for bodysuit prior to project completion. They sent tons of WIP photos throughout the creation process and handled my few concerns upon receiving my full suit gracefully (poor head ventilation- opened mouth; tight head- instructed how to adjust; upgraded to follow-me eyes upon request).
