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.

At first I thought it might have been too big, and added a piece of 2″ foam to the back, then realized there was a strap and it fits perfectly! It was lined with fleece and attached to a balaclava, haven’t really tested the limits of the suit yet, ventilation isn’t great but it was expected with the base (DVC Manokit Base). Vision is also not great but again it was expected with the base. The eyes are about 3″ wide and about 1″ tall, they could be made bigger if needed.

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

Looks amazing! Everything matches perfectly and nothing is wonky, shaving is beautiful although in some spots got a bit too close to the backing, but isn’t noticeable outright. The shaving overall is very short, making the fur not as soft. I can definitely achieve different expressions with different angles, the maker added eyelids and it brought the character together, the eyes are somewhat static but kind of have a follow me effect. The maker went perfectly along with the design and even added extras that matched the character design

The head has gone above and beyond meeting my expectations! As a first time head commission i was a bit nervous but they made sure everything went smoothly. It was definitely worth the price paid, the quality on the suit is amazing!
