[YES] Milky Plantigrade Fullsuit by Hounds Teeth
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under $1000 - $2999.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
Vision is decent which is to be expected with this style of eyes, and it is very airy and comfortable. It’s a teenie bit large so will bop on my head a bit but this may be because I added a fan to the muzzle (weighing it down forward) which has a heavy battery pack attached to the side (which tips it to the side). The lining is incredibly smooth and since I wear a balaclava under my head as well, does not get overly sweaty.
They had forgotten to include the magnetic lids I had asked for, but upon sending it back they installed the lids, gave it a fresh shave, and new eyes to match their updated style! Updated head is included in the images.
It looks great! Exactly how I drew it in my concept art.
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.
It’s perfectly fitted to me, so much so that my friend who put it on couldn’t wear it comfortably! haha. The zipper works like a dream and all of the furs are of very high quality; either one time finds or bunny shags which don’t generate a lot of static and mess. When it arrived, there was a little popped seam on the back, but this is to be expected of hand made work and I just sewed it up myself! No other seams have popped since then, that I’ve noticed at least.
I commissioned Houndsteeth because I really loved their plantigrades and I was not disappointed! Again, matches my concept art exactly and the choice of colors influenced how I drew my fursona after receiving the suit.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
The hands are large and in a style I would call “bappy.” The fingers of the paws extend beyond my own so that when I move my fingers around my paws kind of flap around. Despite this, they do not slip off and have a satisfying weight to them that makes wearing them fun.
The feet came to me far too large, to the point where they slipped right off my feet. I received the suit right before Anthrocon and did not have time to fix them, making walking around uncomfortable. However, I gave the feet to Houndsteeth at MFF and they were sent back to me fitting perfectly!
Very cute handpaws; large and fun with very smooth seams and shaving. The feet fit like slippers and after the adjustment, look perfect with the suit!
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
Tail is nice and big, stuffed well! During Anthrocon the belt loop broke off, but I had some emergency elastic with me that I used to replace the original material. I informed Houndsteeth right away, and I’m sure if I had not been able to fix it they would have taken care of this the same as the other issues.
Matches concept art!
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
I had been watching Houndsteeth as they developed their work and was excited to commission them for a planti suit, a style which I don’t normally like for myself. They were nice and responsive, helpful when I needed it, and willing to fix any mistakes for me. This is definitely a great suit to wear, and I like wearing it for the “chill” times when you don’t want to feel so bulky. I loved working with them and am completely satisfied more than a year later!
