HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
Airbrushing, as in the case with any suit wears off over time, which can be frustrating. Fur is in very good condition. Built in balaclava as held up well. Painted eyes have held up well even though I don’t necessarily take care of them as well as some people.
TheKarelia did a great job following my ref sheet and characterization. Asked about making one change with the eyebrow color because they thought that it would look better. Sometimes the 3D eyes can look a little dark in photos, but that is not a problem if a photographer is using flash or you know how to adjust the exposure of the photos in editing software.
My suit was the first with a moving jaw. The design relies on a tight fit on my head and elastic straps holding the jaw. The moving jaw works great, but like many jaws you really need to extenuate your own movements to have proper movement.
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.
Stitching on the body is very good. I don’t ever plan to rip a seam.
They worked a lot picking out the right fur for me, even ordering several samples of new material. The fur is soft and easy to take care of. Followed ref sheet well. Sleeves and legs are the perfect length. No fitment issues on my body because they use duct tape dummies.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
Scratches on resin claws on outdoor feetpaws. Honestly, I don’t think this can be helped
Outdoor feetpaws, use a foam bottom affixed with glue that will wear over time. May need to hot glue fur back down on the sides
Hands are 5 finger and are very tight and form-fitting. They have to be in order to make 5-finger handpaws. The dexterity and appearance of the handpaws are great. Really nice claws with really well-stitched vinyl paw pads.
Feetpaws have obvious left and right labels sewn into the insides. Hard resin claws can “click” against the floor as you’re walking. Very comfortable as theKarelia let me choose my own shoes.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
Foam tail has held up nicely. The belt loops are hot glued on the tail, and although they haven’t given me any issue, it does seem kind of sketchy.
I have a somewhat intricate tail design and theKarelia was able to do it very well. It matches up well with the designs on my body, and with the proper belt, it fits snugly against the body suit. Made of medium firmness foam, so it bounces and moves nicely as I walk.
