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 suit is loose, and a chunk of foam fell out the back of the head and had very little glue on it when it fell out. After this the suit no longer fit my head. It is not lined, just raw foam with bits of plastic skeleton poking out, especially on my nose when wearing.
Ventilation is not great, as it is a kemono suit and the mouth is tiny.
Vision is okay. There’s a giant blind spot in the center, I have to turn my head to see, and the plastic covering cannot easily be removed, but I was told it would be removable, trapping steam and heat.
I found a needle in the ear area of the suit at one point.

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 okay, there’s a bit of an issue with the markings looking off-center, but it’s okay. The gray does not match the design, but I was told this.
Uneven shaving, and it was hard to keep upkept.
Fur is perfect!
The eyes were actually great looking, they just trapped heat. No expressions, but they work. They were supposed to be follow-me, but didn’t work well.
The maker was the best option at the time and I had a friend working with them. But they only do Kemono suits and the head was huge compared to how I’d have liked it.

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.

Hands were scruffy and itchy, left lots of fur on my hands. Slid off easily because they were “one size fits all” when the maker refused to wait for me to get a hand measurement Mostly comfortable. Feet were a little itchy because the type of shoe used.
Quality was bad. Seams popped all over the hands and wrists. Foam and base of foot fell out during my second time wearing the suit, leaving me with a fabric shell and a shoe. I “voided warranty” by putting the shoe back in the foot so I could continue the meet.
Shoe is on a swim shoe, which could have been a sweat-trapper but really just leaked sweat into the foam. Cleaning was difficult.

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

Feet were huge and chunky, hands were narrow and the circles for the paw “beans” were uneven.
There was almost no shaving on the hands, they were extremely long-furred.
Fur felt great.
Hands and feet had no claws or details other than the paw pads, which were okay but weirdly lined and sewed.
There were added markings on the paws, as she originally didn’t have paw pads, but the arm markings were missing.

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.

It was the best part! It was very comfortable and very good for butt wiggles.
The straps started to pop off, and the seams were popped all over. Straps are not secure and the tail was falling apart. Padding was great!

The sewing of the markings was great!
Shaving could use some work. The underside could have been shaved closer to help cleaning.
Fur felt great at first, but with use became hard to remove all the gunk.
The colors were great! I would have preferred an armature in hindsight. Very heavy but that was a good thing.
Matched great as can be!

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

It was a 5 foot floor dragger tail, worked great for what it was. Again, seams and straps were not great. Very messy sewing.

WingsGives information about any wings the costume may have.


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

Too tight, even though I added several inches for seam allowance in what I sent. I needed help. They were a separate part. Seams were awful and different straps were used on the wings (white) as compared to the tail (black). I could not use my arms when using the wings. There were two sets (medium and “chibi”) though the chibi wings didn’t look like a chibi design.

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

They didn’t sit right on my back and were lopsided. Shaving was pretty good, as the long back fur and short tip fur/fleece were awesome to look at.
Fur felt great, colors were great, did not match the concept art very well, as the wings on the concept were a different style.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


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 used my own art and they made an additional sketch.
I didn’t like the simplification and over-Kemono-ization of the design. The head could have been much smaller if less foam was used.
The small things (no gradient on the tail, which I admit would have been impossible, the wings being flat red) added up and made me dislike the items. The eye’s outlines were colored on with permanent marker.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Seams were not great, and the seam gaps were constant.
The tail was further from my body/less secure, while the wings were way too tight and constricting.
I was OKFAME’s first commission, but later commissions were equally spotty.

Overall Project Quality

No. I loved it at first but I quickly realized a fursuit should last years, not months. Two months in and only two serious wears in it was falling apart.

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

Initial Contact

Too easy, she was very open and helpful throughout the whole building process. It was her behavior after the suit started falling apart that wasn’t good.

Maker Response Time

Response time was pretty great, but she asked that we change Messenger groups several times, added and removed people, and then demanded I only respond via her new page after she rebranded.

Maker Professionalism

Maker was very young at the time of building, and while they were okay at keeping up with things, they were not very good at problem solving.

Project Completion Time

The project was finished in about a month. I made no specific time deadline and she worked with it well.

Nice when things go her way

Not very professional (made bashing videos, etc)
Product received was nothing compared to suits I’ve got for less than half of the price.
