Please note that this review has been transferred from an older 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?
Is it too tight or loose? Does anything poke you, stab you, make it uncomfortable to wear? Is it lined comfortably?
A bit loose but that was due to the first maker making the head too loose and that not really being able to be fixed. Inside is nice and comfy and it is nice to wear. Only problem we encountered is the horns like to pop off here and there due to the vinyl not wanting to stick to the glue.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Ventalation is now perfect.

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 little blind spot. Only problem is she has white eyes and the back wasn’t able to be painted black, so vision can be a bit hard at night.

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Perfect.

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
It’s a bit choppy here and there, but otherwise perfect.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
Extremely satisfied! No longer has a dead look. Looks very animated!

How is the quality of the ears? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Are they too cumbersome? Can you pull on them without tearing? Are they even on your head?
Very very satisfied. I asked for floppy ears and I got that! They flop with movement but not too much! Very securely on and have a nice bounce! Maker even used the last of his white monkey shag on the ear fluff so it sways perfectly.

BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, the answers would also go in this section.

How satisfied are you with how the body fits?
Is it comfortable to wear? Does it allow for good movement?
It fits perfectly and allows me to do whatever I need to!

How is the quality and durability of the body?
Are the seams durable? Can you move without popping seams?
I’ve had only one problem on the zipper, but that just looks like the machine skipped that part of sewing. Other than that, no rips or anything!

How satisfied are you with the selection of colors and the material used?
Everything feels very nice, especially the minky on the stomach!

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?
Will your wrists/ankles show if you stretch too much? Do they stay on your hands or do they slide off? Can you put them on comfortably with ease?
Very easy to put on! Comfortable and the perfect size. Armsleeves cover the fabric on the wrists of hands. Feet have snaps to keep them attached to the bodysuit and a zipper on the back for easily slipping in shoes.

How is the quality of the hands and feet? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Have seams popped? Have paw pads or claws fallen off?
Very satisfied! Hands are very puffy and cute, but still allow for moment and to pick things up! Feet fit me perfectly with shoes on.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

How is the quality of the tail? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Is it too cumbersome? Can you pull on it without tearing? Are the straps secure and even?
If there is any padding or armature, does it look right and function correctly?

Tail is very very nice! The vinyl horns look nice and the feathers are spot on how they should be. Very soft and fluffy with a smooth back so it lays perfectly. Very strong and study elastic straps too.

How accurate to the concept art is your tail?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
Everything is perfectly spot on to the concept art.

WingsGives information about any wings the costume may have.

How is the quality of the wings? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Are they too cumbersome? Can you pull on them without tearing? Are the straps secure and even?
If there is any padding or armature, does it look right and function correctly?

Everything is perfect here! The ones on the suit are very nicely sewn on and very chibi! They have a nice bounce to them and they stay up on the suit perfectly. They don’t flop down.

How easy is it to wear your wings?
Do they fall off? Do you require someone else to put them on for you? Do they weigh you down?
Wings on shirt for partial are very nice! They have a good bounce to them. Only problem is the one like to flop over a bit, but only sometimes! Only help needed is pulling them threw a shirt!

Final Comments

Pros: Very fast and kept in contact with constant WIPS. Very easy to talk to and become friends with. Suit was worked on quickly but also giving it the quality it deserved. Nothing seems rushed and it all looks like it’s meant to last a long time. A new maker but one that acts like a professional.
