Please note that this review has been transferred from another service.
Because of this, the questions and format differ from other reviews on this site.

HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.

How satisfied are you with the fit of the head?
It’s a little tight putting it on, but after it’s on it fits perfectly~ it’s also easy to take off. Nothing pokes, and it’s a comfortable fit.

How satisfied are you with the vision?
Vision is great, I can see right ahead of me, the buckram works perfectly. I sometimes have to look down so I don’t trip, but I’ve heard that’s normal.

How satisfied are you with the ventilation?
Ventilation is good. The mouth is wide open so plenty of air comes through. I live in Texas, and I have not had any trouble breathing so far.

How satisfied are you with the symmetry of the head?
Right ear is slightly lopsided, but it’s only noticeable if you go out of your way to look for it. Eyes look just fine, markings are accurate.

Is the Shaving even?
Shaving job was great~ There’s long hair on the cheeks and bangs, also the neck, which fits well for the character. As far as I can tell, nothing it uneven, and I definitely don’t see any of the foam base.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
I think the expression fit perfectly for her, a laid back, semi-smile. She really captured her personality.
The head looks very well done, besides some cosmetic things, like there is quite a few spots where hot glue is showing. Besides that, very accurate and a very nice look.

How satisfied are you with the quality of your ears?
They’re a little big, but I like that since it adds to the toony charm. They can be cumbersome with narrow/low doorways. They don’t tear one bit, I prefer they aren’t pulled but they stay sturdy.

How satisfied are you with the ease of wearing your ears?
Ears are attached to the head, and they stay on well.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

How satisfied are you with the fit of the hands and feet?
Very satisfied. Hand paws are a little big but they don’t slide off, and wrists are concealed. Feet fit perfectly and stay on, ankles are covered as well.

How satisfied are you with the quality of the hands and feet?
Again, very satisfied. Nothing has come undone in the time I’ve had them~ A bit of hot glue shows like on the head but the quality is still kept. I’m in love with the way she made the feet paws!

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

How satisfied are you with the quality of your tail?
Tail is great, very high quality, and very long and fluffy. There are no tears, and the straps are even. They aren’t completely secure so it swings around a bit, but it’s normally fixed with a really tight belt.

How accurate to your concept art is your tail?
Perfect. Completely accurate with colors and markings.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

No holes, and is very well made and durable~! I’ve had no problems with it.

How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up?
Everything fits, colors and markings are consistent and well done. I haven’t spotted any sign of inaccuracy or inconsistency.

Missed by one day, but I’m still happy with the speed of completion!

Very satisfied. Besides a couple cosmetics issues it is very well built and not at all problematic.
