10/10 – The problem before was just due to the size of my head. With her open happy smile, I get a lot of ventilation! I tend to get very out of breath easily (sometimes have issues due to restrictive airways disease) and I’ve been able to book around in Cynder full blast without feeling like I’m not able to get air in! The expression is so cute. She looks happy and all smiles, and it’s fantastic that it’s so easy to breathe out of her too. Her eyes are very easy to see out of due to positioning from the fix. I have a really great field of vision, as much as is to be expected with any fursuit.
The only thing I have ever noticed is more of a personal preference. Her nose is perhaps not as ‘forward’ on her snout as I’d PERSONALLY want for a personal suit. As far as a premade goes that the team put so much love into? 10/10 again! Her ears look very even and the tufts too match! The markings of black around her mouth seem to have bled a teeny tiny bit, but she did make several long hot trips where she wasn’t properly protected from the heat as well as being subjected to other things due to my own neglect during rough trips. The eyes are extremely expressive and they give me so much life.
The fur feels very smooth and looks even in all places! I have seen NO spots where it’s thinning or ‘balding’ nor any places that look ‘too long.’ I love how fluffy the cheek fluff is and how even they both seem to be as well! No excess shedding either. Even with my own personal chaos of having to haul her in some less than savory manners to places at times, she’s upheld VERY well in this ~year of owning her. The concept art that came WITH the premade matches to a T. I love Cynder to death and Splinter nailed this premade right out of the park! They’re a fantastic team.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
Just hands – They came with her as another suit was upgraded with a new tail and handpaws. The tail and handpaws were, as such, preowned. I currently have commissioned Splinterfox Productions for a pair of indoor feet paws due for late winter/early spring completion.
The handpaws are super comfortable if not a bit big. But again, these were made for someone else. There are no tearing seams or anything either despite these items having been pre-owned. They do not get overly hot. They are not awkward despite being a bit big on me. Again, this is due to them being premade.
The fur is all very smooth and soft to the touch. The blue matches all over and really makes her colors pop. The shaving looks even all over and there are no tearing/popping seams nor any signs of heat damage or anything like that.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
It came with her as another suit was upgraded with a new tail and handpaws. This tail, like all their others, are super bouncy! Their newer tails are even more sturdy. The belt loops seem to be an older pattern, or just not as finessed as what they do now. Even so, the tail is extremely bouncy and comfortable. I need to invest in a tail belt because it ‘droops’ on me and the belt pulls back. It is a very old belt, however, and this is something I have no doubt will be remedied with a proper belt. Great wags, great bounce, super comfortable!
Despite having a white underside, I’ve not noticed it getting any stains. I’ve heard that suits with white on the lower back area can stain from sweat or whatever else. The fur has so far stayed incredibly smooth and white. The shaving is impeccably even and pleasing to look at. It looks fantastic on and amazingly bouncy for videos!
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
They are an amazingly wonderful team and deserve everything good. They are kind and make incredibly beautiful suits. (Really, keep an eye out for their premades and be ready for future openings!) Their wiggle ears are to die for and I cannot WAIT to get Boo! the Caracal as a fullsuit from them. I recommend them to everyone for suits and for their premades and premade parts!
