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?
Extremely! Even though it was not made for me, it is very comfortable! The lining on the inside is very comfy as well.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Ventilation isn’t the best, the mouth being so small means a small opening. I can get too hot very quickly depending on where I am.

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)
Very good! Blind spot is not too big, I can see very well!

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Perfect! No symmetry issues at all!

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
Shaving is done very well, the mask is very even and transitions to longer fur are done well! They also used a lot of shorter furs on the face.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
Very! The super cute look and expression made me fall in love with the suit!

The tail is built very well! Durable straps and sits upright. Super bouncy and I love the furs!
