FURSUIT HEAD
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the head of the fursuit. 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 fursuit.
Are you satisfied with how it fits you? How is the ventilation? How is the vision?

The head is neither too tight or too loose. It fits fine, but could be a little more snug so that the movable jaw responds better. There is no lining inside the head. Ventilation is fine, I do not think the head is that stuffy, and air circulates well throughout the head. There is a blind spot, but it is not that large. I do however, tend to only look through the left eye and will have to turn my head to see.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your fursuit piece looks from the outside.
How is the symmetry? Is the shaving even? How does the fur feel and look? How satisfied are you with the overall expression and appearance of the head? Does it match the concept art?

Most of the head and markings are symmetrical, only the eyes are slightly lopsided. Shaving is mostly even, there are parts that are choppy, but the transition to short and long fur are perfect. The fur feels exceptionally soft, and is able to be brushed very easily. I am more than pleased with the expression and appearance of the head. I can also achieve different expressions, from happy to angry, Wilbuh also has follow-me eyes. The head matches the original concept art perfectly.

Special Attachments and Features
Please describe how satisfied you are with any extra features your head has.
What are they and how do they work? How easy are they to wear? How is the quality?

Wilbuh originally came with removable hair and was attached to a piece of velcro underneath the horn. It was well made, very soft, and easy to put on. Unfortunately, I do not use it that much anymore. Wilbuh also comes with removable black plugs. They are made of foamies and very easy to install, light, and very aesthetically pleasing.


BODYSUIT
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the body of the fursuit.
If you are reviewing armsleeves or legs/pants that are seperate from a bodysuit, your answers would also go in this section.


 

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear this piece of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the body fits? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like? How is the airflow?

The arm sleeves are comfortable to wear and allows for good movement. The sleeves themselves were sewn well, but the sewing for the spikes would easily come off. The problem was fixed by a later repair from the maker. They are not lined, but do not have markings on the inside. Air flows reasonably well.

Appearance Satisfaction
Please describe how satisfied you are with how your fursuit piece looks from the outside.
How is the symmetry? Is the shaving even? How does the fur feel and look? How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and materials used?

The markings are symmetrical and match up to the character design. The fur on the arm sleeves are not shaved, but it feels very soft and can be brushed very easily. I am very satisfied with the fur and colors used.


HANDS AND FEET
The following questions ask you to explain how satisfied you are with each feature of the hands and feet of the fursuit.


 

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the hands and feet fit? How is the quality and durability? What is the interior like?

The hands and feet are very comfortable, allow for good movement, and are the perfect length and fit, so that my wrists and ankles don’t show. They do not slip off and I can put them on very easily. Seams are durable and I am able to move without popping seams. Throughout its use, several claws have fallen off, but that’s expected from an almost 2 year old suit and some rough housing. They are not lined, but do not have markings on the inside. The shoe base uses regular athletic sneakers.

The markings are symmetrical and match up to the character design. The shaving is very even and the short to long fur transitions well. The fur feels soft and can be brushed easily. I am very satisfied with the fur and colors used.


TAILS

Wear Satisfaction
Please describe how it is to wear these pieces of your fursuit.
How satisfied are you with how the tail(s) fit? How is the quality and durability?

It is comfortable to wear and easy to put on but due to the placement of the belt loop holes attached to the tail, it does not stay in place and can get flipped over if I move it a lot. The stitching for the spikes are very durable but some stitching that connects the blue and white fur have come off. The straps are well sewn and very durable.
