It’s slightly loose, only because I asked for some room since my head is so small. He’s lined very well with a very soft space-patterned fabric that’s very soft and comfortable, and he’s extremely well ventilated! He’s easy to keep cool in, very easy to breathe in, and amazingly comfortable to wear even in hot weather.
His blind spot is very, very large, and I’ve already tripped over one small child. His vision is almost entirely peripheral as there’s a very large gap between his eyes, but so far it hasn’t caused more issues than one child collision.
The shaving is a little choppy and backing is visible in several spots at close range, but this was also the maker’s first experience with using shaved fur. Typically, Cerb’s suits are made from minky, so the uneven shaving overall does not detract from his appearance. His symmetry is good, and his markings are accurate to the reference despite being somewhat difficult to interpret. The fur is incredibly soft and the colors, though all similar, are distinct and his markings are easy to see. He matches the concept art well, and I’m very satisfied with how he came out!
Horns and beak are added. The beak is hot glued on and feels as if it may well fall off if handled roughly, but has survived some rough handling with relative ease from children and family. Horns are sturdy enough to lift the entire suit by.
The beak has one very large, very distracting seam in front, which cannot be easily fixed, as it was made with vinyl.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Cerb was extremely fast to complete steps, very communicative about deadlines, and very willing to make changes to be certain that Ekh was exactly how I wanted him. They were accommodating, friendly, and the final product is wonderful! I’ve recommended them already to several friends and would, given the chance, purchase more suit parts from them in the future.
