HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
Out of the three suit heads I own this one comes in second. It was built on 24” base which I thought was fine because the head to my other fullsuit was built on one as well. It fits a little more snug than that one. It requires a little more finagling to get it on as the balaclava (made from custom printed lyrica) came unglued from the foam in a few parts (I think was because of shipping). I have yet to fix it because it really isn’t too much of a bother and is only around the eyes and a little around the mouth. It has a blind spot, but nothing that isn’t workable. I can get around pretty well without a handler. His head is on the heavier side so I do take more frequent breaks. Since he does press against my face a little, it makes breathing a little more difficult but nothing terrible. Overall, he wears well!
You can see creases where the foam was put together on the fur. I am not sure if this is because of the foam or seams of the furs, my best guess is a little of both. The mouth hangs open a bit and gives a derpy look, which I love! His eyes are follow-me eyes with stunning purples and blues and a star in them. The fur looks fine to me, but I am no expert there were times where I wondered if it was upside down, but like I said no expert and it all seems ok! (If there is any easy way to tell please lef me know!) One of the antlers flops a little more than the other, but because she sculpts these by hand. You can also see the seams around the base of the antlers to about a third of the way up on the back of them. There are minor flaws, but nothing major and nothing I figured was worth mentioning to the maker because it either couldn’t be fixed or was so miniscule that I didn’t need to fret over it. The main thing being the foam and seams, I figured it was just something that happens as I have seen it on my friends who own suits by them; it really does not make it any less pleasing and is not terribly noticeable! Overall it is a cute head!
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.
The body was built off my dtd and fits a little loose which I did intentionally. I did this to give me a little more room to move about and hopefully dance in it. Turns out doing this also made it to where my boyfriend of 6’ could also fit into him! He fits well! Everything lines up nicely.
Overall he looks well and feels ok for the most part. The purple on his backside has a rougher feel to it and I am not sure if this is just because of the location of it or the fur itself. I have not brought it to the maker’s attention because I figured it was just the fur itself and I don’t have it anywhere else on my suit to compare it to. The gray fur with glitter strands tends to get a little crinkily and look like heat damage in some places, but isn’t. The ends are little frayed in some spots. I have never dried this suit in a dryer and it was washed on the cold setting so there is no way for me to have caused extreme heat damage to it; the only damage could have been caused by me just wearing it. It isn’t notciable unless you actually inspect the fur. The glitter strands in it tend to get smushed together so it requires extra care to keep it as straight as possible! Overall I am happy with how the bodysuit turned out!
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
The hand hooves- they are a little hard to keep on as they are three fingered and stuffed with polyfil to give them some shape. I have to pull them down every now and again to keep them from falling off. They are not lined so I will probably change out the polyfil every other convention. The are made well and have no worries about them breaking or popping seams.
The feet hooves- they are built on slip on shoes and require a little bit of help to get on. This isn’t the maker’s fault, I have back issues so putting these on while already in suit makes it a little difficult for me. I’m also bad about getting the back of the shoe to bend under my heel so that is the other reason. They fit really well and I feel like I could wear them as normal shoes if I wanted to! They are lined with custom printed lyrica.
Both the hands and feet look really amazing! I am not sure if the seams are supposed to face up or not when wearing the handpaws as both ways look great and I was not told specifically so I figured it was a suiter preference. The fur around the back of the feet hooves does touch the ground a bit so I do have to clean them if I go out each and every time or else I risk it clinging onto whatever dirt and debris was on the ground! Overall really pretty!
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail is a little nub tail with belt loops. The belt loops a little small so getting my seat buckle belt through it took a little bit of effort. It fits fine though and lines up with the suit. It moves and bounces well.
It looks great and with the two different lenths of fur it gives it a really cool look. The only thing I have on it is the fact that around the base it is a tad crinkily. It is nothing terribly and the maker gave me ways to fix it if I thought it could be heat damage. This tail has also only been washed in cold water and never dried in a dryer so the only damage could have come from jusy sweat and me or my boyfriend wearing it. It is on the underside so you can’t really notice it.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Overall the maker is easy to work with and will treat you like a valued customer. She is by far one of the nicest and most professional people I have come across and I would more than happily recommend her to anyone!
