Wilbuh, Large Partial

Character Concept Art



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


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

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 How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

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 Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

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.

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.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

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.

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


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

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.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

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.

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