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 fit is pretty nice; when i shake my head harshly it moves around a bit, but it isn’t too loose, although i do have a small head.
Ths ventilation is very good, it gets warm quick but that is to be expected.
The vision is amazing! I haven’t found a huge blind spot other than right in front of my nose.

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

The symmetry seems perfect as far as i can see, other than the ears, which is intentional.
The shaving is very even all around, looks perfect.
The fur feels and looks perfect. Super soft, all in the right direction.
The expression is really nice- its very neatrual and can seem more happy and determined at some angles, which i love. The eyes are follow me, and the effect is perfect.
It matches the concept art almost perfectly, but the eye dots are a bit bigger (which I don’t mind at all)

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

The special attatchements are the antlers, which are a unique feature in my eyes. They work really well with the head and flow nicely.
The antlers are attatched to the head, so they are very easy to wear.
The quality is really nice. Alot better than what i expected for stuffed antlers.

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 feet fit perfectly, and they are very comfortable and snug. The hand paws are a bit big, but i have very, very small hands. No skin shows when i stretch or move a certain way, which is good. My handpaws only slide if i flail them around, which isn’t a common occurrence.
The quality is pretty good, although i have popped a seam on one of the handpaws and one of the feet, it was easy to fix though.
The handpaws are lined around the edges, and the feet are lined to the heel. You can see the fabric marks on the inside. The shoe base was a pair of crocs, which was by my choosing.

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

The symmetry is very good on the handpaws, and it is also very nice on the feet, although there is a small difference on the top of the feet, that is hardly noticeable.
The shaving is almost perfect, except a few longer peices on the handpaws, but it is easily hidden.
The fur feels and looks great, it is all in the proper dorection.
I am very happy with the materials. The pawpads are silicone, and the hooves for the feet are made from fleece/felt. I love how it makes the fursuit look.

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.

I am very satisfied with the tail. It is very comfortable to wear and has a really fun bouncy movement.
No seams have popped on the tail and everything is very durable.
The straps are very secure and work well.
There is no padding/armature.

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

The tail lops to one side a little bit, but its expected for the design of the tail. I love the longer fur and the way it flows.
The fur feels super soft and nice, and it goes in the proper direction.
The colors are pretty much perfect, with a little bit of a difference with the main color. Its a little stiff for wagging, but otherwise its great. It matches the concept art perfectly.

OVERALL VISUAL SATISFACTION
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with the overall visual aspects associated with the costume.

 
How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art?

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?
All of the markings and such match very well and it fits nicely.
