HEAD
The following questions ask how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the fursuit.

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?
Very! Quite comfortable, the lining material is nice. There is a big patch of glue where my chin rests, that is my only discomfort.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Extremely well, one of my best suits for ventilation! The mouth on the suit lines up perfectly with mine, and my nose is there too. Perfect airflow! The back of my head can get warmer but in general, fantastic ventilation!

How is 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: most suits do not have peripheral vision)
There is a pretty large blind spot, I generally do favor one eye a lot. But the vision is alright! Not the best, but I haven’t had a big issue.

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
When I first got the mask, the symmetry was pretty off. One cheek was bigger than the other, the eyes did not line up. But the bigger side of the muzzle was quite noticeable. It was sent for refurbishment.

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 was very well done! Very even and the transitions to longer fur were nicely done.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
Love it! The shape and expression are what made me fall in love with it before it was even finished! He looks really happy and derpy and I love it!

It was hand delivered at MFF2013 as agreed, so very satisfied!

I am pretty satisfied. Some things needed fixing like the symmetry, and the neck fur was very bunched up. But even with those it was built quite well!
