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.

Head is more snug putting on than anticipated, but not much so as to seriously impair putting on. Once on, fits well and sits securely, making wide array of movement possible without falling off. Visibility is good. However ventilation is only reasonably possible through through the mouth due to being a resin base, so the head can get stuffy quickly. Horns have a good amount of give without being loose fitting. All in all head feels solid and not overly fragile and doesn’t require highly delicate handling / transporting.

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

Final appearance matched given reference very well. Fur is high quality and brushes smoothly. Eyes are static as requested. Expression is good, in range of what was requested and can be made expressive with use of the hinged jaw.

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.

Tail fits on belt loops, sits securely and is easy to put on. Construction feels solid. Tail is too short, as requested, to be felt moving or wiggle too much.

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