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

Body is great. Zips up easily at the front. The feet are attached via zipper so I never have to worry about the legs slipping off of the feet. I can bend over in it fine without strain and it’s not baggy, either. I lost a bit of weight since making the DTD so I have some extra room at the stomach but it’s not noticeable and doesn’t detract from suiting. Its actually perfect for wearing a cooling vest if need be.

The seams are durable and mostly machine sewn that I can see.

The padding, polyfil, removes very easily from the zippered pockets in the legs made to hold it.

I’ve never had a body before this but I’d say the airflow is good. While I do get hot of course, I can usually feel a breeze through the fur fabric and it ventilates easily.

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

I love it! While I was expecting the Digi to be more slim (asked for slim Digi) I do like the overall look. So in the pictures I uploaded the legs aren’t actually stuffed all the way as I didn’t have enough polyfil (sent unstuffed for room) when I got it but it’s the only pictures I got that shows the body and parts as they came out of the box.

So I have grey on the under part of the underarms and the way the arms are sewn, the grey is actually congruent with the underside of my real arms- that is, they sit at an angle like arms naturally would (think when you are holding a phone with both hands), the grey isn’t just on the general underside, if that makes sense. I really appreciated this detail.

Markings are perfect and everything is symmetrical. A longer fur was used at the chest and shoulders for a more werewolfy look that I like.

In some pictures my suit overall can seem bottom-heavy with my head, as it’s a realistic resin head that I made— this isn’t CantOfTogs’ fault at all, it’s just the nature of realistic heads honestly, and they wouldn’t have been able to see the size of my fursuit head in comparison while making it. Bodysuit heads can typically be bigger than partial heads in my experience, especially depending on the maker and their style. I’m commissioning a toony head soon anyway and refurbishing my realistic head atm so this shouldn’t be an issue, and it’s really dependent on what the angle of the photo is.

I think the only thing that stuck out to me otherwise was the ankles, the fabric folds over slightly where my legs meet my feet so the transition isn’t completely smooth- it doesn’t look bad, and actually allows me to fully extend my feet whenever I’m sitting down. I think it’s something actually caused by the fact that my feet are attached to the body by zippers, but I love the zipper feature so it doesn’t really bother me. Again, it’s NBD.

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

So I asked for my feet to be attached to the body for convenience purposes. CantOfTogs ended up installing zippers at the ankles to allow me to take them on and off as needed! I actually REALLY like this feature as I don’t have to worry about the legs slipping off the feet at all and they can be removed in a few seconds for washing. I’m really glad I got this feature, I couldn’t go without it now.

I also got rubber-bottomed feet. CantOfTogs usually does detailed feet bottoms which looks amazing but I personally prefer performance bottoms/like to walk in the woods. My friends tease me about my tire tread feet but I tease them for always having dirty feet, so I digress, I’m happy with my rubber soles!

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 are great! I have tiny hands compared to most people. The first time I commissioned CantOfTogs (Jericho partial, review was posted here) the hand size was a small issue but I hadn’t thought about it until then. This time CantOfTogs got measurements of my individual fingers for an accurate fit, and they fit… Like a glove. Haha

The feet fit great. They’re built on memory foam shoes. This was another thing different between my first time commissioning and this time that I liked. While Jericho’s feetpaws looked great with the detailed paw embroidery and soft base (used them as house slippers even they were so comfortable) I just needed something that would hold up outside and thus got shoe-inner with rubber bottoms. They’re also built with foam toes this time, whereas Jericho’s feetpaws had a soft stuffed base. I like both designs and may commission indoor paws in the future, but I definitely love the design of these feetpaws!

I love the paws! The fingers are cute and shaved very well. Theres no raw edges, they have a fleece edge.

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?

Fits together great. Paws rarely slip out of my armsleeves but I’ll probably add on snaps to attach them to the arms better. Feetpaws blend in well to the legs. Everything fits!

Quality and style is consistent and great as usual.

Overall Project Quality

Exceeded expectations. The zippered ankles were seriously a great surprise. Everything is sewn well and despite having worn this suit to multiple conventions already, all day, going into the woods or to dances, no holes yet!

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

Initial Contact

Very easy with quick replies. Mostly via email. I was given a list of measurements needed and sent in the DTD soon after.

Maker Response Time

Great response time, usually within a day or two.

Maker Professionalism

CantOfTogs is always a pleasure to work with. Polite and easy to understand. No personal life details/excuses. There was no ETA but I also don’t ask for them.

Project Completion Time

Perfect. I actually got the bodysuit a few days before a con I was to attend and got to debut it there! I didn’t ask for a completion date I don’t think but I might’ve mentioned I was going to AnthrOhio. Items completed and shipped in a very timely manner.

Final Comments

It is very very important for me to note that the only reason I got the price I did was because I supplied a lot of the materials (fur, handpads and claws) needed for the project. A bodysuit from them would never be that price, especially not with the NFT fur used on the suit. Honestly I was surprised by the price and tipped (wish I could have more!) because I was given features I didn’t think to supply materials for and know materials are expensive. Their work is 100% worth the price asked without the discount. Makers are really underpaid for the time put into it and I’m grateful.

Everything from my review of Jericho’s partial from my first time commissioning seemed to have been noted and improved upon. I was really surprised by this and appreciated it greatly.

I’m a return customer and plan to keep being! CantOfTogs is my go-to maker and any time someone asks for recommendations, I say CantOfTogs, every time. Seriously, check them out, my suit design does no justice- CantOfTogs has a ton of experience with complex markings and complex LED work.
