Give your best estimate.
The head fits very well but is a little tight against my cheeks. Everything is lined perfectly and nothing pokes me while I wear it.
Ventilation is very good due to the mouth being open and the large eye holes. It does get a bit hotter than the other suits I have owned due to the type of lining that was used, which is a felt material.
Of course, there is a blind spot between the eyes but the vision of this suit is a lot better than the other suits I have had it past. I only need to turn my head slightly to see objects in front of me or the sides of me. The vision in this suit by far the best I have ever encountered, even with others suits I have worn.
This suit was a pre-made that was purchased via auction. There was a character concept design made beforehand and everything is pretty spot on. The design is simple and was crafted beautifully. There are spots on the eye brows that have a slight difference between the two but nothing you can really notice unless you are really looking.
The shaving on the head was very well done and transition to longer fur on the cheeks and ears is not noticeable at all. The fur can be easily brushed and did not come matted or clumpy.
Without the special eye lid attachments there is only one real expression and that is extremely happy. I am super satisfied with the expression of the head and I believe this is one of items that really drew me to make the purchase. The eyes are static and do not give any other expression other than super happy without the optional attachments.
Several different items came with the head to change up the expression and the style. The tongue is detachable and can with 6 different tongue styles and colors. Two purple tongues, one small and one long. Two pink tongues, one small and one long. Two yellow tongues, one small and one long. The head also came with eye lids which are used to change up the expressions.
The longer tongues give the character a more ‘derpy’ look. The eye lids, when used together, can either make the expressions look angry or sleepy. When used separately, they can give the character a whole different expression.
The eye lids are made out of felt and have magnets in them to keep them in place. The tongues are made out of minky fur and are super soft. All of the little extras that came with the head are amazing additions and they make the head all the more enjoyable to wear.
The body is a snug fit but is perfect for my body type. I only have troubles with the fit when I bend down all the way and then I begin to feel a tug and have to stop to prevent the seems from ripping.
The suit has been double stitched and is super durable. I have never had a problem with the seems popping and I don’t think I ever will.
The interior of the suit is not lined with any materials and is only the back of fur fabric. This does not cause a problem for me since I wear full under armor gear when I wear the suit. This may cause a problem for others that wear the suit since the back of the fur fabric is extremely itchy.
Because the suit fits snug against my body and I always wear under armor gear the suit never really feels stuffy or uncomfortable. I would prefer to wear this body suit rather than other body suits I have worn in the past.
In addition to the body suit, I received arm sleeves and leg sleeves so that the suit can be worn as a partial. The arm sleeves are snug to fit but the leg warmers are like those seen in the cyber/rave goth style. They fit very loosely against the calf but they do not fan out like said style instead they are straight. They can not be worn with normal shorter feminine shorts and they must be worn with longer shorts they come down to the knee. This has posed a slight problem for me as I do not normally wear shorts of that length but there are other ways to get around this. Overall these are great additions to the suit to make it more versatile.
The body has a simple design is symmetrical all over. There is nothing out of placed or lopsided. The body was not shaved and all the fur holds its original length. The fur is super soft and does not clump easily. The fur must be of high quality since I have had fur ‘melt’ due to high heat in the past when worn. This fur is still the same as the day I pulled it out of the box and is still super soft. The colors selected for the make are pretty spot on to the original concept art.
The chest part of the suit offers two pockets, one on each side of the zipper. These pockets can hold a very large phone and many other items. This was a great additional to the suit since it makes it easier to get the items you may need during a con or event. ie. debit card, ID, money, phone etc. There is no need to take the suit halfway off in order to get to your pockets. These built in pockets make everything so much easier since your handler does not need to carry these items all the time.
The hands are toony with big fingers. Toony paws with any suit will limit your dexterity since they are so big. I can only grab large items when wearing these paws but they are super cute. One of the seems has popped on one of hands since I have been wearing them but nothing I can not fit. These have been pretty durable over the time I wore them. They do not show my wrist since the come about 3 inches above the wrist line and the arms on the body suit hides the seems nicely. They did not come lined with any materials but are not uncomfortable to wear.
The feet are probably the cutest part of the entire suit. The toes of the feet are beautifully crafted and have been made with minky fur which is super soft. The pads are made of vinyl which makes them easier to clean. The feet are made on what I think are skater shoes. They do not feel like cheap skater shoes and have held up very well over time. Nothing on the feet has come apart from the shoes since my first wear. The interior of feet paws has not been lined with anything. There are a lot of gaps on the interior but none of that show when the suit is worn as whole. The feet can not be worn as a partial because of these large gaps but I did get additional indoor sock paws so that the suit can be worn as a partial.
The sock paws are very soft and super comfortable to wear. I even find myself casually wearing them around the house at times. They are made of the same fur material as the rest of the body and offer the same vinyl paw pads as the larger paws.
Both pair of the feet paws are symmetrical to the original design and both fit amazingly. Nothing is lopsided or uneven. The fur was not shaved and still holds its original length.
The tail of this suit has a super tight curl. I am unsure how the maker was able to pull off a perfect curl but they did. The curl of the tail is amazing and the fur goes with the flow of the curl perfectly. The tail was built onto the body of the suit and requires a belt to hold it in place. If a belt is not put in place the tail hangs away from the body. Most suits with a built in tail will require the same thing so this is not abnormal. No seems have popped on the tail and the symmetry is perfect to the original design. The tail has been double stitched and has never come apart from the base at any time.
No shaving has been done to tail, the fur still holds its original length and the tails symmetry is perfect to the original design. The tail mostly just falls to the side and does not stick out like shown in the photos. This does not cause a problem since the same species’ tail does the same thing.
How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?
If there was no concept art, please state N/A
I never saw the concept art before purchasing the suit. After seeing the concept art for the suit, I can see that the suit matches the art perfectly. There is slight difference in the shade but that does not take away from the make or the character.
How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up?
Do you markings match up at the seams? Are the colors consistent?
Overall the markings and design of the character is amazing. The maker did a very good job with the symmetry of the suit.

No quote was needed for this purchase but contacting the maker was super easy.

How long did it take them to respond?
They responded very quickly to any of my messages or questions. There was barely a delay in response time.

Were any deadlines missed or was it done early?
There was not a deadline given to the maker. The suit was pre-made and delivered to FWA which was then picked up.
How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project?
Extremely satisfied. This suit is always my first pick when I wanna go suiting.
How satisfied are you with the overall customer service and professionalism of the maker?
Very satisfied. They were super kind and very professional during our correspondence.
