Prior Experience

Yes, I have made them and owned other suits

Informed Maker of Issues

Yes – when I was shown the pictures of the finished product, I realized the wrong fur was used on the belly, The mistake was totally my fault, as I hadn’t paid close enough attention when swatches were shown. Kilcodo graciously replaced it at no cost and also airbrushed her freckles to match!

Very lightweight and comfortable! The mouth opening lines up with where my nose and mouth are on my face perfectly, so the ventilation is awesome.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

She looks great! Super happy and with those trademark Kilcodo eyebrows. After owning her for about 3 years, I sent her back to Kilcodo for a refurb, and got a more deery nose and ears.

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.

Comfortable, easy to wear! Front zipper makes her easy to put on by myself.

Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The original hands were made from vinyl, foam, and fur. The vinyl “hooves” got sweaty and smelly inside after a couple years (despite washing), and I commissioned Kilcodo for new hands made from fleece. Both pairs have been comfortable!

The feet were originally built on slippers with Dream Vision Creations hooves made from resin (they no longer make these anymore, now they’re made from foam). They were comfy, but after a few years I decided I wanted something more sturdy that provided more support. I sent them back and Kilcodo built my new feet on Crocs.

A couple years after that, one of my resin hooves cracked while bending over to pick something up. I contacted Kilcodo again and she re-made my feet on new Crocs with the new DVC foam hooves. I still have this set!

The above upgrades were all commissions, but at a discounted price and always with a fast turnaround!
