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?
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!

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?
The ears are on there pretty good! Durable and flexible!

 

 

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?

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

How satisfied are you with how easy it was to initially contact the maker for a quote?
I contacted the maker right after the auction end, they responded within the hour and everything was set up by the next morning. The suit was shipped the next day!
