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

Comfort: I can’t believe how comfortable it is! The inside is lined with lycra I believe, and there are pillows sewn into the back to maintain the shape and keep it comfortable. It is also very roomy without being too big; my face doesn’t touch the inside at all which is very nice because I have easily irritated skin. To be fair, my head is somewhat small, so this may not be the case for everyone who might try it on, but it’s perfect for me.

Ventilation: I have not had any issues with ventilation! Of course its going to be a little stuffy because it’s a block of foam that goes around your head, but it’s never been difficult to breathe. If I need some more air flow, I can bend the mouth open.

Vision: Pretty good! I have a blind spot between my eyes, which is to be expected, but I usually just use one eye at a time and works fine! My character has large 2D eyes and everything but the light green sclera is made of buckram, so I have a wide range of vision.

Weight: It is surprising light considering how large it is!

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

I love everything about the way she looks! She has an adorable expression, beautiful fur, and looks great from all angles! I will break it down each of the components:

Ears: So big and cute! I especially love the cream tufts of fur in them – they are one of the details I definitely didn’t expect to translate onto the suit so I was really happy to see the maker added them!

Eyes: They’re very beautiful, and I am so thrilled that the maker was able to make the sclera the mint color on the ref sheet! I did not expect this because I figured fursuit eyes usually had plastic around them, but they are a sort of paper material painted with acrylic paint. They have also held up really well – no scratches or anything! I also really love the eyeliner.

Mouth and nose: The nose is nice and squishy, and appears pickable even though it isn’t. However, the felt material used has started to pill a little, which is fixable, but requires a little bit of upkeep. The mouth is perfect – she has a soft minky tongue and teeth, and its also completely lined!

Neck: The neck is really nice and goes down far enough so it looks great when worn as a partial, as seen in the picture.

Symmetry: Overall, she is incredibly symmetrical! One of the ears is bent a little on the top but I honestly think it adds to the cuteness.

Shaving: Shaving looks perfect, and I can’t tell where the seams are unless I look really closely. The transition between the short fur on her face and long fur on her cheeks, back of head, and neck, are also perfect.

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

I provided my own ref sheet and it was matched to a tee! She included even the littlest details, like whiskers, the tufts of fur in her ears, and the colored sclera on her eyes.
The color is different, but this change was discussed and agreed upon between us.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

I only ordered the head from the maker, everything else was made by me, so this is irrelevant.

Overall Project Quality

This fursuit exceeded my expectations in every way, from the maker’s professionalism, to the fast completion time, to the quality of the product itself.

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

Initial Contact

It was very easy to contact the maker! I messaged her on Instagram when she was posted for commissions, and she quickly responded with a quote. When I decided I wanted to go ahead and purchase, she ordered the materials right away!

Maker Response Time

Very fast responses! They were always within the day, and usually within a few hours of messaging her.

Maker Professionalism

She was very professional and pleasant to work with! She was always patient with my questions, even when they were kind of dumb (I was a complete fursuit newbie). She also contacted me whenever she made progress and sent WIP pictures, going above and beyond sharing the process with me.

Project Completion Time

She was completed in three months, which was absolutely amazing! We didn’t have a specific completion date set.
