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.

My head is actually really comfortable and easy to see out of. It fits my head perfectly right out of the box and is snug but not tight. It was lined with a balaclava and it absorbs sweat quite well. The ventilation is good but not great but having a fan seems to fix that for me. Compared to other heads I own, this head is by far the nicest to wear.

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

I would say that I am pretty satisfied with how it came out. It has good symmetry and the shaving is even across the fur. The fur is nice and soft as apposed to the cheap feeling some furs give you. The expression was spot on with my concept art and I love how it turned out.

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.

This body was really nice to put on. It has a front zipper for easy in and out as well as it fitting perfectly for me. I have washed it a couple of times and it holds up great! The zipper is really strong and all the sewing stayed together. There is no lining so I wear underarmor under it to protect the fur. In terms of airflow, its decent honestly. You can feel the breeze through the suit very easily which definitely helps with heat.

I think the body came out amazing! It had my symbol on the back from my concept art and it was super clear as well as being symmetrical. Not to mention that it’s super soft and nice fur, haven’t had any issues with knotting or bald spots. Also the shaving was even. I love the colors, the maker helped my pick the colors that matched what I was looking for and it came out just like my ref.

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

The hands are a bit tricky to put on in suit and a bit hard to keep on sometimes. I solved that with a safety pin and that seems to work great. Also the hands are really nice for dextarity. The feet are perfect, super comfortable to wear for long periods of time and super soft (if you get sock paws). The quality is really high and haven’t had any issues with seems popping or damaged fur. The feet have lining but the hand paws do not.

I think they both look amazing and matched my concept art! Everything is nice and evenly shaven and the fur is nice and soft with no damage. The colors match the rest of my suit so super happy with that.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

The tail is definitely really nice to wear. It’s big and fluffy but easy to walk around with. The tail has a super tough belt loop so it won’t break off like other tails I have had. The tail hasn’t been washed but it has had someone try to pull it off and it didn’t break off.

The tail matches what I was looking for exactly! The concept art sent is exactly the way the tail came out. There wasn’t much shaving on the tail but it was even where it was. The fur is super soft and no damage on the fur.

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 feel that the concept art was followed in every aspect. Of course some things are different due to the style of the maker but all the important parts of the concept art are there.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything fit together and all the colors match making it look complete. Every part fit perfectly and I didn’t have to send it back for adjustments. The only issue is the hand paws staying tucked under the arms. If you move your arms around a lot then they come out. I fixed this with a safety pin so it’s an easy fix.

Overall Project Quality

I love the suit as a whole, everything fits together nicely and it all fits me nicely. Super high quality with everything and never had an issue with zippers.

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

Initial Contact

I used Twitter and email mostly but email at first. The times I talked were always super nice and very clear on what was needed from my to get the suit made.

Maker Response Time

The maker responded super quick (usually within a day)

Maker Professionalism

The maker was super professional but always treated me well. When there was a delay I was notified immediately and progress pictures were taken whenever I asked (within reason)

Project Completion Time

I originally wanted it by December but due to some delays I didn’t get it in time. The maker tried so hard to make the deadline but the whole commission was a little late but not super late. I would say it was acceptable with how late it was.
