HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The wear for a resin base is great, obviously very warm but that got used to by me wearing the head. LEDs are hidden very well, switch is in a convenient place. Velcro was used to close the back of the head, honestly now would’ve preferred a zipper since the velcro has been not sticking very well from the NFT getting in the way.
There is i noticed some very sharp edges hidden with the balaclava, i will keep an eye on them to make sure they wont poke me.
Overall the wear is very comfortable!!
Vision is as good as it can get with a resin base, there is a large blind spot in the middle, my glasses fog up quite a bit. But I’m thinking of getting contact lenses or antifog.
The symmetry is perfect, nothing lopsided or uneven, the shaving on the head is good as well. Everything is hidden well on this head. It is gorgeous. The fur feels nice and fluffy, had that new smell unboxed. The expression was exactly how i wanted it, grumpy with a smile. She matches the concept art to a par. Very happy. The nose was chipped when i received her but did i coat of paint myself, maker said it looked great.
As mentioned above she has LEDs and they work and are hidden well! Moving jaw works great, hinge snapped but was easily fixed by super glue. I would suggest using thicker material for the hinge itself. Hinges are thin and fragile.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
Hands were snug but do fit well, feet were made on crocs in my size. No issues with the fit, fit is good. Noticeably the claws were rough looking, they do pick up dust easily, maybe could have been sanded and coated? After a couple wears and when it was time to clean up the suit, seams fell out and holes formed on the toes as well as fur shedded where there are big missing patches now. The claws i knew during the con i attended moved around quite a bit, not until further inspection they were actually not scored very much and the hot glue was pulled out from the claws. I was greatful i didn’t lose any at the con. The claws on the hands, same issue, the claws were wobbly, some actually could fall out by a few more wears i think.
The feet are lined and the cuffs are lined too. I feel like the paws were rushed due to multiple missed due dates, could have been better with better glue and maybe ordering a better batch of fur.
Overall in photos they look nice, in person however you can see the flaws they have and now the patches and wobbly claws. I am going to scrap the hands and feet as they will continue to deteriorate.
The fur on the hands are shaven very weird, short in places, long in others, feet looked okay when it came to shaving. They match the concept, with ordering parts i would not commission them again.
Resin claws on both hands and feet, silicone paw pads (which looked great), outdoor soles. (Held up nicely)
The only issues were the fur quality and care for the resin parts. Not being smoothed out or glued in properly.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
Tail is easy to wear, attached via belt, nothing has been broken or worn. Quality is nice!
The tail is a bit smaller than i had hoped for, it looks dinky on my fullsuit, which is fine. I can wear this tail if i want to wear the suit as a partial. The tail matches the concept well, the maker confirmed fur direction and patterns well. I was happy with the attention to detail.
She added a zipper in the tail for the delays, it was a nice gesture. i am grateful for it. Acts as a wallet to store money or treats.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Things are a bit difficult now to get a hold of them as i ordered a kigurumi that ive been waiting half a year for.
3 due dates were missed. So when it comes to due dates i think if you are okay with not having a due date she would be good to commission.
I think everything i needed to say was mentioned, i feel like i was an unlucky commissioner who got caught up in the middle of other commissions and she felt rushed or maybe unmotivated to work on my suit. Hopefully the kigurumi i ordered will have a much happier ending.
I should mention she still owes me a badge with my partial suit order. I had no received it yet. Its been since August since I’ve heard about it.
