HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.
Extremely satisfied! The head fits snugly with enough room for my nose not to be squished and I’m able to wiggle my head without it spinning around my head! My friends told me the suit felt more dense weight-wise but there was never any strain on my neck (and I’m a tiny bean) so definitely not heavy.
Ventilation is great, I just wore him to a convention and I never found myself having trouble breathing or getting hot too quickly. The mouth is wide open and if I want any extra air I can easily open it more!
Vision is good! I can see clearly through the eyes, no paint is in the way and the hole for the mesh is large. There’s a big blind spot in the middle but I can see through the mesh to my sides and it’s easy for me to just pick a side and look through one eye at a time.
How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.
The symmetry is on point, lots of care put into making sure the sides match whether through markings or physical features.
The shaving is nice and short on the face and extends out to long soft fur on his cheeks and neck smoothly. Fur is very soft.
Expression is absolutely adorable it definitely reflects my character and I adore that the tongue is always sticking out. Looks good from any angle! Static eyes that actually mimic my style perfectly so they have a precious digital-art look.
It honestly matches the concept art fantastically! They mimicked my style to mesh with theirs and the result is honestly fantastic!! It matches the concept perfectly not a thing was changed or modified and the markings were done exactly!

How was your concept art realized?
I’m honestly so amazed with how much they pulled from the concept art into the suit even stuff I hadn’t expected!! Some highlights I wanna point out are the inner-ears following the line shape I draw them, the eyes and even the two tiny eyelashes I draw them with, the line under the nose connecting to the mouth, and the DIAMOND the diamond on the back of the neck looks so good honestly I was worried about it in concept but they pulled it off to a T. The only thing you may notice is that I didn’t do the hair tuft and Jay offered to do it but I personally just chose to cut it out in the final design of the suit! But this suit matches my design perfectly in shape and in markings!
How well does everything fit together and match up?
Everything matches up at the seams, the sewing on the fur and inside the head are extremely clean! Nothing wrinkles or feels loose on the head, it all feels smooth.
Symmetry again comes up here; the ears match in size, the eyes match in size, everything matches extremely well and it looks really clean all over!
Costume is consistent with the maker’s style and quality. They also applied a lot of the look of the concept art into the suit so it focuses more on matching the original design than anything!
Overall Project Quality
Quality is fantastic, the entire suit feels so professional with how sturdy it is and how much care is put into making it. The sewing job is also fantastic and clean, very tight and strong work. Very durable so I don’t feel like I have to worry about him tearing or falling apart. Really nice balance of nice looking and nicely built. Just based on assumption this head should last years and years without a problem. Also the head is lined with nice material and it shows how much care is put into it cause even though most people don’t see the lining they make sure it is consistent and nicely sewn for the commissioner’s sake.
Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.
They actually brought up a trade in a conversation and I was so honored that they even wanted to??? They told me how much they wanted in art and I wanted to make sure the trade was fair so I was constantly checking and they were always very responsive!
Maker Response Time
Response time is practically immediate they usually respond within minutes to at most a couple of hours! Communication especially sped up after switching to telegram!
Very professional, very friendly. Fantastic customer service! We talked a lot on a more friend basis but they’re just extremely friendly and nice in general. Communication was clear and constant, they walked me through every step of the process to make sure that I was satisfied with the work they were doing. The constant updates and communication were honestly so nice!
Project Completion Time
Project was done extremely quickly after they started!! I was honestly shocked with how quickly they work. I was put in a trello and they’re very accurate about their group placement of their projects. They don’t follow hard deadlines but they told me a general estimate of when they thought my head would be finished and they met it before! Items were also shipped immediately, and he arrived extremely quickly.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING A SUIT FROM THEM. They’re extremely friendly, communication is fantastic, their work is extremely professionally built with clean sewing work and nice symmetry, the style is adorable and they take great care to make sure they get all the details right about your character and they constantly check it with you to make sure you’re happy too.
