[YES] Cinna the Monster Cat Partial by ShamrockScales
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under $500 and under.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
There’s no discomfort while wearing the head, but I do have a little trouble getting it on due to it being just a tad smaller than my actual head. Despite that, the lining is soft and absorbs sweat appropriately. It makes cleaning a whole lot easier.
The ventilation is really, really good, because the third eye has mesh in it and the mouth is big enough to let me breathe, but doesn’t expose my face.
The vision is perfect, I can see very well and the blind spots aren’t too big.
Shamrock was able to capture Cinna perfectly. She has a toony style that makes her look happy, excited, and cute. Shaving is even and well-done! The fur is so, so, so soft and easy to brush. I am very happy with Cinna’s appearance, I specifically asked for her tongue to poke out (it does), for two big fangs (they’re plushy and cute!), and for her to look like a kitty cat (she has a short muzzle, cat nose, and definitely looks like a cat!!)
Cinna has removable antenna and sleepy eyelids. The antenna attach easily but it’s kind of hard to put on the eyelids right, but they still work and make her look sleepy and cute! The quality is perfect.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
Both the hands and feet fit nicely, they’re very cozy. Sometimes I even wear the feet as slippers! They allow good movement and they don’t show my skin easily. They stay on, even if I wiggle and shake a ton.
The quality is better than perfect. The claws are sewn well and the stitches show how hard she worked to make them sturdy. The lining is white and so soft, it keeps me cool and comfortable.
The feet lining is maroon and cozy, it also keeps my feet from sweating too much and they’re more than cozy. If someone put them on thinking they were slippers, they would say they were top notch slippers!
The claws are puffy and squish-able. The claws are sewn neatly and the stitches go up the claws evenly. They face the right direction as well, they don’t go sideways at all. The shaving is done nicely as well, you can tell Shamrock took her time doing it. The fur is extremely soft and if I weren’t so protective of my suit, I would wear them outside as gloves!
The paw pads are made of maroon fleece and they aren’t stiff or rough to the touch.
The feet are puffy and large. I get lots of compliments from them, especially family members who see me wearing them as slippers! When I told them a friend made them, they’re totally shocked; they thought they were store bought. The bottom is made of fleece and it’s so easy to clean. I just use a lint roller to get lint and fur off, then spot clean for dirt and such.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail is long and well made! It bounces when I walk and sways from side to side easily. The fur is so soft that I could use it as a pillow. The stuffed green spikes are made of fleece and they don’t tilt sideways.
The seams on the back part (where the belt loops are) are SO nicely done. I don’t have a picture, but the stitches show how long Shamrock took on the tail to make it durable. I can hold the tail and shake lightly (to fluff up the tail) without the fear of popping seams.
I either have to wear it with a safety pin attached to make the tail hang upwards. But I usually wear it without one, so the tail droops slightly. There’s no problem with this, I just thought I should mention it. This actually is for the better, so I can have it droop when her sleepy eyelids are on.
I asked for her tail to be raptor like and Shamrock delivered. The tail is chunky at the base but thins out and droops at the end, like a real raptor’s tail! The spikes are soft and they’re symmetrical to each other.
The fur isn’t shaved, so it’s fluffy and long, which allows for it to either look brushed and neat or fluffed up.
Cinna has two special attachments and both exceeded my expectations!
Firstly, Cinna has attachable blue antenna. They attach with magnets and stay on even when I shake her head. They’re also bendable and can be posed easily!
Secondly, she also has eyelids that make her look sleepy/sad! They don’t attach very easily but stay on when I move or shake her head! They add to her character and I love how they turn out!
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
She treated me kindly, with professionalism (despite our friendship, Shamrock would still treat any customer with kindness and professionalism. I wanted to add that, because some people can be wary of a commission between friends. Shamrock is a kind person to the core and you can count on high quality professionalism and a pleasant experience).
When we discussed suit related things, there was definitely a change in tone. I felt like I was treated like a customer in the right times and a friend in the rest. She was never vague, she always communicated with me clearly and made sure I was informed of the ETA and WIPs.
Cinna was fully finished in October and she delivered her to me personally (she’s local). We were able to meet only a few days after her completion and Cinna was packaged very nicely! She had her head wrapped in sparkly green tissue paper and had extra goodies in the boxes she came in. Cinna came with a brush, lots of art, candy, and some other cute goodies! I was thrilled to bits by this UwU
Pros of working with ShamrockScales:
-Shamrock is professional, kind, friendly, easy to talk to, and personable.
-She ensures a happy work environment (she never comes off as annoyed or impatient).
-Her work is always high quality and has many hours of hard work put into it
-Many WIPs and she informs you of what’s going on every so often, so you’re never in the dark
-Instead of being a fursuit maker who spits out multiple suits every month, Shamrock puts loads of care into each and every suit, making sure it’s something you’ll love as much as she does
Cons of working with ShamrockScales:
-Literally, I can’t think of anything
Overall, I would work with Shamrock again in a heartbeat. She’s kind, works hard on her projects, and communicates well. I recommend her to everyone I know who’s in the market for a fursuit!
