HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The head is somewhat tight to wear, but it fits without major discomfort. There was a lack of ventilation upon receiving it so I had to modify that on my own. Even with my modifications to the ventilation, it is still very hard to breathe. I placed ventilation areas in the bottoms of the ears, but they are unusable since my hair juts out right where the ears begin. I cannot wear my glasses inside my suit because my face barely even fits in there, but not to the point of major discomfort. My jaw is not aligned with that of the suits and it makes it very difficult to make use of the mouth ventilation.
The vision is very limited– I can see to the sides of me (not peripheral), but not in the middle. There is a massive blind spot and when my eyes were installed, they were turned more inward than outward. If you look at the head head-on, the pupils are not visible, just the eye blanks. On the inside of the head, there are giant white spots beside the eye mesh because the insides were not painted black. I plan to remedy this myself soon. I have to turn my head to see decently and often hold things right next to my eye due to my limited vision without my glasses.
The fur feels very nice and silky. It is a great white shade for my character and everything about the head matches my reference art very well. The shaving is mostly even, but on the upper cheek/ear area, there are some spots where the fur is very thin and the green foam is visible. The fur is easily brushed.
The inside of the mouth is partially furred– the bottom half and tongue have a wonderful material, and the two top teeth are installed. I sent four teeth with his base to the person intended to fur it. They did not fur the roof of his mouth.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Majeste was a nice maker to work with. They were efficient in their work and communications and open to compromise. The process was simple and modifications were easy to be communicated and fixed. Going forward, I hope to wear Banban a lot, but with more modifications done to him.
