Character Concept Art

Photos of Completed Product

HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.


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

The head fits extremely snugly, if it was any tighter, it wouldn’t be comfortable. The vision from the eyes is very good.

Ventilation is decent.

Unfortunately it appears that my right ear was not sewn on all the way and the stitches are failing on it. There is a 6-7 inch gash behind that ear. The hair seems lumpy towards the top, like it wasn’t pulled taught before being stitched.

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

Symmetry is nearly spot on, but the muzzle is slightly crooked. It bothered me a lot at first, but I’ve grown to like it, as it lends a little character and extra cuteness. The fur feels very soft. The airbrushing of the teardrop marks could have been laid down a bit darker.

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.


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

I have about 80% range of motion at the elbows and 60% at the knees. When I bend over, it will quickly feel tight in the back.

The quality of the body seems better than the other parts, so far. There was a hole in one of the shoulders and Rumwolf fixed it promptly and professionally. Airflow is decent.

The red fur bled a bit onto the white fur when tub washing.

The fur feels very soft and I really like the contrast between longer and shorter furs.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.


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

The hands fit very well. Unfortunately when I went to tub wash them the first time, the stitches failed on a few of the fingers and I had to have them re-sewn. They stay on the hands well and do not slide off.

The feet were so hard to put on when I received them that I ripped the lining and sent them back to Rumwolf to have zippers added so it would be easier to get my feet in. Upon getting the feet back with zippers installed, the zippers promptly separated from the lining of the shoe where they were stitched. The stitching does not seem to be done very well.

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

The appearance of the hands and feet are great, though it made me sad that they started falling apart so quickly after not being worn much.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.


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

The tail fits great and is at a proper height. No problems so far.

It’s cute 🙂

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?

Concept art was interpreted correctly, no issues.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The sleeves are a bit long and it’s a tad hard to get the hands on with that going on. The feet are still a little challenging to put on, but other than that everything is alright, except for the extreme snugness of the head, at the elbows, and at the knees.

Overall Project Quality

I would give it a grade of C due to all of the problems I’ve had with stitching coming undone and the unprofessional behavior at the end.

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

Initial Contact

Very easy

Maker Response Time

I was in the que within a week or two if memory serves.

Maker Professionalism

I feel like I was treated well at first, but that in the end he ended up acting very rude and unprofessional towards me due to some personal problems he was having, when I simply wanted my repaired feet back. He did not respond to an apology email I had sent him.

Project Completion Time

The costume took less than 1 year to complete I think. Items were shipped in a timely manner upon completion.

Final Comments

Overall Rumwolf is a nice person. However, I wish he had treated me with more courtesy towards the end of our relationship and I wish it hadn’t of ended the way it did. I would not work with this maker again and, in hindsight, would have gone with someone else.
