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

Heads built on resin bases aren’t typically very comfortable without padding, but surprisingly, Titus is pretty okay. The hinges for his moving jaw are completely covered, there are elastic straps so he’ll fit any wearer’s head size, no discomfort on any part of my head. He does get pretty hot quick in the summer, but nothing a little fan in his beak won’t fix, and he’s very easy to breathe in. Vision, for a head with only tear duct sight, is VERY good for me! There’s a small blind spot in the middle and sight to the sides is a bit limited, but It’s way better than I ever expected.

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

All materials used for the head are high quality and haven’t shown any wear yet. The markings on the front of his face aren’t completely symmetrical, but they’re very small pieces of fur that are hard to work with, so that’s absolutely understandable, and no one would notice it without focusing on it. The eyes are absolutely gorgeous, and follow very well.

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

Moving jaw: The bottom jaw is hinged and moves, though not very much. It opens about an inch and is a bit hard to move when wearing the head, but it works.

I can definitely tell the maker had experience with patterning and knew how to keep every piece lined up well with the others. The work is very clean.

I am overall very happy with everything.

Initial Contact

Very easy and great to work with. Most of my ontact with them went through IG.

Maker Response Time

They do their best to respond as soon as they can.

Maker Professionalism

They are professional, but friendly as well and easy to communicate with. They know how to talk with you in a way that isn’t that awkward stiff business work feeling, but more comfortable and approachable.

About as long as a maker would usually take to complete a head/what was expected. Shipped out in a timely manner.
