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

Malacath is such a pleasure to wear and I adore the attention that he gets when I’ve suited. His vision and ventilation aren’t the best but for a first head, it’s good enough. As for wear and tear, I’ve found only one small hole on the right side of his head from where his ear was glued on. The inside of his head was not lined but I’m not sure what the material was, and as for it fitting, it’s a big snug but not bad enough to stop me from wearing him occasionally. His head isn’t perfect but he is very well made for a new maker, not to mention an overall cute head and character.

I do plan on getting his head refurbed soon so that it will fit me better but this is something I will have his maker do.

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

I’m very pleased with how it looks from the outside. Malacath has a cute expression and overall friendly and approachable look. His head is symmetrical, his fur is soft, and though the shaving is a bit choppy, that doesn’t distract from the positives.

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.

Malacath was a 3/4 suit so he only came with legs rather than a full body. The interior of his legs is very breathable and they are comfortable to wear. Seams are durable when someone who fits is wearing the legs. I unfortunately cannot fit into his legs (but I was sure of this before I purchased him), and will look at getting them resized by his maker so that I can wear them.

His legs look amazing when added along with the partial. They’re very soft, markings are symmetrical, and they fit well with his character.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

Hands –

Malacath’s paws are very fun to wear. They’re very plushy and fit me well. Since they’re a bit larger, it’s a struggle to get the second paw on. There also isn’t much mobility due to their size but that isn’t a problem when I’m with a handler. The interior breathes well – I have found one small hole on the inside of one of his fingers but this is an easy fix.

Feet –

By far my favourite part of Malacath to wear are his feet. Being a kangaroo, they are quite large and make walking awkward but this honestly makes me feel more in character. The feet breathe well and were made over a pair of crocs, which make for wearing them comfortable and very easy to slip on and off. Only downside is that they are a bit heavy.

I’m quite satisfied by how both hands and feet look. I adore the look of big plushy paws and big feet to go along with them. Markings are symmetrical, shaving is good, and the fur is soft and easy to brush. The claws on Malacath’s paws complete his look. His pawpads are made of fleece over a hard substance that keeps their shape and adds to the good size that his paws have.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

Malacath’s tail is a pleasure to wear. It’s bouncy, comfortable, and catches your eye immediately. The tail itself is durable, no problems with the elastic straps and no holes found. The straps themselves aren’t exactly symmetrical but no enough so to hinder me from wearing it. The tail can also velcro to the back of Malacath’s legs. It has some problems with sticking to the legs so I prefer to wear it on a belt.

I like how his tail looks from the outside. There are minor problems with shaving and the symmetry of his markings but overall it’s a sturdy and soft tail that I’ll honestly wear by itself around cons sometimes.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything matches up well when it comes to suiting. His markings are consistent as well as fur colour/type, shaving, and shape. When put together, everything is nice and symmetrical, impressive for the maker’s first suit. Since this is a first suit, I’m eager to see my maker improve both style-wise and in quality – my expectations were exceeded when I found out that this was her first suit.

Overall Project Quality

I’m very happy with Malacath. Even though I haven’t worn him much (mostly due to a busy personal life as of late), I’m always excited and jump at the chance to wear him and show him off. I do plan on getting things on him fixed up due to my size but this will be done by his maker.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

Very easy. I contacted the maker on The Dealers Den when I saw him up for sale and wanted to see if I could nab him before the auction ended.

Maker Response Time

My maker’s response time was quick, and it only took a couple days to get everything in order and the transaction finished.

Maker Professionalism

Customer service and professionalism was phenomenal. She was very open and ready to answer questions I had, as well as updating me on shipping and even sending a free fursuit care kit along with Malacath.

Project Completion Time

Since Malacath was a premade, completion time was not an issue.

Final Comments

KazyCat Creations is a new up-and-coming creator that I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a good medium-quality suit at a fitting price. They are very easy to work with and though there is some fursuit creating aspects that need improving, I feel they’ll get better an better with every commission. I can’t wait to send off Malacath to get him fixed up as well as eventually commissioning them for a personal suit in the future.
