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 is lined nicely with green lycra and sits incredibly comfortably against my face. I can shake my head and he’ll stay on, he’s very easy to pop on and off. I have decent ventilation and vision with a typical small fursuit blind spot. Timmy has a small mouth opening so dancing in him is difficult to do without the space closing up or preventing optimal airflow. For normal wear, he’s perfectly comfy, easy to see and breathe in, and he’s cushioned nicely to the point where I’ve almost fallen asleep in him a few times! His head has not popped a single seam since I’ve owned him.

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

Timmy’s appearance matches most of his reference; certain aspects were requested, like an ear shape from another DAD suit and a pink muzzle marking not originally on his design, and both were implemented as requested. The vein markings and nosebleed on his head are dry brushed; the nosebleed is nice and doesn’t clump up the fur, but the red and blue vein markings are clumpy. His horn is gray, as opposed to white, but this is not an issue I brought up at any point during his making and not one that I mind. The base is a little asymmetrical, but it’s practically unnoticeable both in and out of the suit. He looks absolutely adorable!

The shaving is very nice, I’m incredibly happy with the fur she decided to use and the “pink tips” effect on his inner ear fur, which was achieved by having white fur and a small strip of pink fur beneath. He is easy to maintain. He has an adorable goofy smile and I love the teeth and tongue she gave him!

During the process, I was given the option of including his hair, but decided to opt out of it after seeing the hair laid on the head. This is not an issue with the maker so much as it is with Timmy having curly human hair, and at no point did I request a wig nor did I desire one. He looks good without 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.

The hands are puffy and unlined, but cuffed neatly with cute space-themed spandex fabric. His sleeves are fit well to my measurements. Both have been easy to wear and wash, and are very comfortable. However, tucking the paws up into his sleeves has been difficult and a two-person job due to the amount of fur on the wrist of the paw and the small opening of the sleeve. Leaving them untucked creates an unsightly line between the paw and the sleeve, but is easier and quicker to manage. This is my sole complaint for the paws, which are otherwise fantastic and haven’t popped a single seam or needed any fixing.

The sleeves were not cuffed at the top (at underarms) and eventually began to stretch and fray a little, which is a problem that I was able to fix myself.

The feet that I received are not the ones pictured with the rest of the suit; the image of the singular foot alone is one of the ones I received. They fit my feet and are lined with a cushioned fabric, though if I shake my foot they will fall off, so they are not optimal for dancing in, but good for walking in. These feet are gigantic! I don’t know how I’d fit the ankles into a bodysuit if I made one, but they are fine by themselves! No popped seams here either!

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

The asymmetrical vein markings on Timmy’s sleeves are airbrushed, which I love more than the dry brushing and came out very well, zero clumps! His paws are very cute and shaped adorably. The shaving is even, and the appliqued minky pawpads are cute and soft. Overall fantastic appearance!

The feet are shaped adorably! I didn’t expect them to be as big as they are and I have come to like smaller feet in the years after commissioning Timmy, but this is merely personal preference and does not impact the fact that the maker did a wonderful job! Very nice and clean shaving with durable foam bottoms.

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 is easy to slip on and off of a belt and isn’t too heavy! I requested a roughly 3 ft tail thinking it wouldn’t drag and the maker delivered as promised, but it turns out that I’m shorter than I thought! Regardless, the tail is balanced, comfortable, and durable. The only place that has shown any sign of wear is on the underside of the minky tail feathers, which is to be expected; it’s actually more durable than I would’ve thought! I can pull on the tail without tearing, and the straps are secure and even!

The tail has no markings, which I am alright with. I requested the same tail feather shape as another previous DAD suit she’d made, and she delivered! The pink tips on the feathers are cute! They are only on the top side; the underside is entirely white, since it’s not visible. Very cute tail, I’m impressed with the shape!

WingsGives information about any wings the costume may have.

Magnets were requested and put in the wings, and a separate harness was given. I have unfortunately lost the harness, but for the time that I had it, it was easy to take the wings on and off (with assistance, since reaching and seeing my own back is quite difficult). One of the magnets has either slipped back into the fabric or fallen out, because I can’t find it in its original placeholder spot, but the seam isn’t torn. The magnets in the wings were strong and durable!

I love the shape! They’re made of soft white minky and they have detail stitches on the feathers. Super cute!

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

The magnets are not a common feature in her wings, but they turned out very well in mine! With these magnets, I can wear any shirt that I’d like without having to rip holes for the wings. Plus, they’re strong enough that I can move and bounce around without worrying about them falling off!

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

How well does everything fit together and match up?

All of the seams match up well! Everything fits correctly, and with the minor exception of tucking the sleeves, everything looks great together! Timmy is consistent with her style because he was made off of an expanding foam base. I’ve only had to repair the arm sleeves!

Overall Project Quality

I’m happy with Timmy! He meets my expectations and is well worth the money I paid for him. I don’t regret commissioning him at all!

Very professional! The maker was pleasant and easy to work with, albeit very busy, so I talked to her assistant occasionally.

Project Completion Time

One ETA was passed; I expected to receive the partial in June for a convention in early July but was only able to receive the head. The parts were shipped out later, and the sleeves took the longest to get to me as one individual shipment.
