Head

How satisfied are you with the fit of the head?
Is it too tight or loose? Does anything poke you, stab you, make it uncomfortable to wear? Is it Lined comfortably?
Since it was a premade, I knew it wouldn’t fit perfectly on my head. In the description of the suit, it said it would fit up to 25inch and below, I am 23½ and it is quite big on me, but not extremely loose. If I shake my head, I can feel it flopping around on my head when wearing it. I was aware of it being a tad too big on me when I arrived, and it was not as bad as I thought.

How satisfied are you with the vision?
Can you see well in front of you? Is there a large blind spot? Do you have to turn your head to see? (Note that most suits do not have peripheral vision)
The vision is a little over decent, the eyes are HUUUGE, giving me a lot of vision to the sides, but unfortunately, there is a big blind spot in the middle, which results in me having to turn my head a little to see in front of me. Its something I can live with.
The only thing that really bugs me though, is when I’ve suited for some hours and I take my head off. Due to the blind spot, I get very dizzy when I take the head off because I basically only use one eye in the head. It takes 5 minutes or so before its gone.

How satisfied are you with the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
The ventilation is AMAZING! The eyes are huge, and the mouth is open so a lot of warm air get out, and cold air get in. I can breathe as if I’m not wearing the head at all. The mouth is even open enough to put a water bottle up in it so I can drink in suit.

How satisfied are you with the symmetry of the head?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
They are great! The only issue is the smile on her, on her left side, her smile is higher than on her right.

Is the Shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
The shaving is very even, it looks natural and goes from shaved to non-shaved very nicely. Howver, there is a single, very small spot where you can see the backing, on her left side, on the purple. Its not noticable, unless you’re looking for it.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
The expression is great, happy and a little childish. I think I’d liked it a little better with some small eyebrows, but I still love it as it is!

Hands and Feet

How satisfied are you with the fit of the hands and feet?
Will your wrists/ankles show is you stretch too much? Do they stay on your hands or do they slide off? Can you put them on comfortably with ease?
The hands were a one-size-fits-most, so they are supposed to fit most people. In my case, they are a little too big, but they don’t slide off, unless I shake my hans wildly. I make sure a handler tug them in my slleves very well before I go suiting. The paws are huge and really cute, and fits the style of the head. They are also padded, which adds to the cuteness.

How satisfied are you with the quality of the hands and feet?
Has anything come undone or fallen apart? Have any pawpads or claws fallen off?
The sewing of them are great! If I roll up the ends of them, I can see that they have been machine sewn. The padding inside is permanently sewn in over fleece. The padding is polyfil (or so I guess; it feels like that) so its washable.
I’m only a bit sad that the seams are noticeable on the fingers. Other than that, its just great!

Tail

How satisfied are you with the quality of your tail?
Is it too cumbersome? Can you pull on it without tearing? Are the straps secure and even?
The tail is very light, and stuffed nicely. When I take it on, it stands out and is very wag-able! Many people have walked into it while I was out in the public, it have even been pulled once or twice, and there is only a very little hole by one of the straps (less than a cm) that very easily can be fixed. The straps are very VERY secure, I can pull them with no problem.

How accurate to your concept art is your tail?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
N/A

Ears

How satisfied are you with the quality of your ears?
Are they too cumbersome? Can you pull on them without tearing? Are they even on your head?
The ears are very huge. I often hit the doorframe when walking through a door; however, they are very well put on. I fold them over my eyes a lot, and there is only a very small hole, that isn’t noticeable at all by one of the ears. It have been fixed now, by the way. The ears are really flat, and without dimmension, sadly. But I still like them, as they are huge. (And I love huge ears)

It’s very LazyLupe-like, very cute and chibi-like!

Construction

How satisfied are you with the overall quality?
Are all the seams durable? Has anything fallen apart? Are there any holes?
The quality is amazing for such a cheap suit, I’ve only found two holes, one on the head and one in the tail, that both are very small.

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?
I am indeed, you can see that it wasn’t rushed at all and the marking are even on both sides.

Communication

How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker?
Very sastified. They answered very quickly, considering that they live on the other side of the globe.

How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker?
Were they pleasant to work with?
They were very quick at responding, and very friendly and professional! I originally asked her to hold it for me, where she politely declined at first, but actually held it for me when I explained that I had all the money and just had to get a ‘go’ from my mom to buy it.
They were by sure very pleasant to work with and she was very patient with me and all the questions I asked her. When I received it, the box was really beat up, so one of the eyes were sitting loose ( sta.sh/0268u17utbmj ) I told her about it, and she explained how I should fix it. Really good customer service!
