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.

The head is very comfortable to wear. Since it was a premade it was made in a “one size fits all” fashion with elastic straps and it fit all of my friends who were eager to try it on.

After a while the head starts to get a little stuffy and I assume it’s because the fabric used to line it is a little thick. The mouth is big enough that I can open it wide and get some air.

The eye holes are a little small so vision is limited. The blind spot in the middle is very small though, so that helps with some of the vision issue. Sheer fabric was used for the eyes so it’s kind of like I’m wearing sunglasses and I can’t wear the suit at dusk/night or in dark rooms.

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

The ears and mouth are asymmetrical and one ear kind of flops into one of the eyes. The mouth is uneven so if I turn my head one way, she looks happy and if I turn it the other way she looks kind of quizzical. A good thing is that I can get a range of emotions with her.

The shaving is even except for a few stray tufts of fur around the mouth and a little bit of the backing shows in that area. The fur is very soft to the touch.

The eyes only have a little bit of a following effect since they’re flat but that’s not much of an issue. I get compliments all the time on how adorable she looks overall and if I suit around children, they seem to love her.

The biggest appearance issue is the neck. It’s very big and floppy and if I tuck it into my hoodie/shirt it will eventually bunch up and stick out the back. I use a bandana to keep it in place.

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.

The hands are extremely comfortable to wear. The fur is separate from the lining so when I’m wearing long sleeves, I can tuck the sleeve between the two fabrics and my wrists don’t show. I have little to no problems picking things up in them.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume pieces look from the outside.

The paw pads are fleece and the pads are the right paw are smaller than on the left, but really that’s just a cosmetic thing. Overall, they look and feel very nice.

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.

The tail is very bouncy and fun to wear. It has double straps made of elastic and so far they seem very durable.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your costume pieces look from the outside.

The tail looks and feels great.

Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
No deadlines, as it was a premade.

The maker was very kind and professional and with a little bit of work, I feel that they will have some very satisfied customers in the future.
