The head is amazing, the features and markings on this head are very accurate to the art I gave the maker to work off of. The head has just enough room on the inside that it doesn’t feel constricting, it is also very nicely lined on the interior which makes wearing it even more enjoyable. I believe that spandex or a balaclava material was used to line the head and it does absorb sweat properly and cleaning has been easy so far. Ventilation on this suit is great along with the vision out of the eyes. Yes, there is the ever present blind spot but I can see out of this head much more clearly than the old one I owned. In this suit I actually have a little bit of peripheral vision and it helps a lot.
The maker matched my character’s design perfectly with the reference sheet. Symmetry is pretty good as well on the head, a few things are slightly lopsided like his lower jaw and nose but that doesn’t bother me at all. The shaving is quite even, save for a few small spots where I can see a tiny spot of backing but that’s understandable where the extremely small markings are sewn in and the transition between fur lengths is excellent and very clean. The fur looks very bright and super clean, it is also extremely soft and I can’t stop petting it. The markings do not rub or bleed because they are sewn in so I do not have to worry about that. Yes, you can brush the fur and smooth it easily without any issue. I am super duper satisfied with the expression on the suit head and the overall appearance of it. The eyes are a follow-me type and they work wonderfully! I was a little nervous at first about the eyes not being that much of a follow-me effect but they follow you perfectly from every angle. The concept art and the head match perfectly, the maker worked with me to get all of the colors correct and making sure that I was satisfied. The maker did modify the design slightly by adding the small grey whisker spots on the muzzle and it added to the suit head and I’m quite happy that they gave me that suggestion.
What I consider special features are that the maker used actual metal piercings for the head which upped the accuracy to the concept art and I really enjoy looking at them.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
I would definitely work with this maker again in the near future, their quality of suits goes up with every new one that they make. They’ve Improved a lot and I see that reflected in their work. I have no cons at all with this maker, pros only and I’m happy for that. They were very sweet and very professional with me, they also listened to my concerns and worked with me to make this suit accurate.
