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.
I love it, honestly I love it. I was scared about it at first since I went straight for digitigrade out the gate. But its comfortable, the mobility is excellent. I can run, jump, crouch, fall, roll, all the things I can do normally without any problems. The padding doesn’t shift any and it transitions nicely from my hips and butt. I’ve yet to have any rips or popped seams. I didn’t ask for it lined because I figured it would just be to hot already. The interior doesn’t cause me any issues and it’s honestly not as hot as I anticipated.
Overall, I love it. I can see myself wearing it for a good while.
My design was very simplistic but I also wasn’t sure about the placing of a few markings. They suggested some things and they turned out really good, its super soft and looks fantastic. The transition from the different colors is also very smooth and well done. I can’t see any backing and it matches what I wanted perfectly
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
The feet are shoe based and build on canvas loafers, they fit me pretty well, i had a slight issue with the left one sliding off at the heel, but it was an easy fix on my part. They were very easy to move in once I got used to it, I can run and jump without losing them.
The hands fit me ok, There’s a little bit to much finger space so its a little difficult to use them, especially on the pinky and ring finger. But again, it was a really easy fix just by wearing cloves. They aren’t lined because I didn’t ask, though I’m kinda regretting not getting them lined. But it’s something else that was easily fixed by wearing gloves. Once I got used to them, I was able to at least pick things up to use without removing my paws.
The feet look amazing, they used Minky for the pads and claws, its super soft and looks adorable.
The paws look good as well, silicone was used for the pads on them and it makes it easier to grab things. The only problem I have is the claws seem a bit to high on the fingers, but that could just be my own weird, non artistic eyes seeing it. Outside of that, the shaving was well done, the colors were absolutely perfect, so far they haven’t gotten very dirty and when they did it was easy to clean.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The original tail was a bit to big I think and it kept wanting to turn sideways in my suit (furry banana) but they addressed this issue and made me a new tail that’s smaller with a slight curve, that one works far better. It fits well and its easier to partial with.
The tail fits well right at my belt line and the center of my back, in suit or partial. I can use it with my basic pull belt and its really soft and easy to brush. There is a squeaker in the tip which seems to wanna shift around a bit sometimes but nothing I can’t deal with. Its really soft and easy to move around when I need to (I actually use it as a cushion to sit on when I’m wearing it)
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Rhee was very open and understanding, helping and guiding me, even willing to drive a fair distance to help me with my DTD and see me suit up for the first time. We have talked and been to a couple events as well where we met up, even after our transaction ended they have still been very friendly and nice. They break me out of my shell that I seem to have when fursuiting by trying to play and doing random things with me, even attempting to pull me onto the dance floor at a local event. I consider them a friend and a very sweet person. I couldn’t be happier with their work and I hope to see more from them in the future. If I ever wish to upgrade my suit, they are more than likely the maker I will go to.
