BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, 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.

Body fits absolutely perfect and is very comfy to wear. I get lots of movement out of it, I can jump around and everything. Obviously with a digitigrade padded suit, some actions are limited, but I can crouch well and I can sit down and stuff.

Build quality is very good, I like to run and jump around in it, crouch in it, do all sorts of silly things and it’s held up very well.

The padding on the legs is lined and is very comfortable. It’s like wearing a giant pillow and it’s so great!

Airflow is very good, obviously I get more sweaty on my legs because of the paddings but it’s nothing unbearable. The lining of the padding helps a lot!

The bodysuit has a front zipper which is mostly hidden by her long chest fur, having a front zipper is great because it makes getting in and out of suit so much easier!

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

Symmetry is spot on. There’s nothing uneven.

Shaving is great, there’s a tiny nick on one thigh but nothing major or to stress about.

Fur feels great, lovely furs used and she’s so soft. The use of long and short furs is great (I specifically asked for this variation), and the colours are lovely. I gave a little leeway with the colours because I knew her colours were a little difficult to get spot on, which is okay. 🙂

The thigh padding is my favourite thing, I specifically wanted her to have thick padded legs (to give a similar look to a Ragdoll’s “pantaloons”) and her digi work is AMAZING! It just looks so good. She’s so soft and squishy too.

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 comfortable to wear and I can still grasp things well!

I did have a thumb claw come out but that’s nothing a bit of hot glue can’t fixed! Had absolutely no issues since.

The hand paw interior isn’t lined which is OK otherwise it’d get more sweaty.

Feet are SO comfy to wear, they are lined and are just basically like big slippers.

I did send the paws back to get some more fur put on for extra length, and some elastic so they stay on more securely, that way I can jump around and I don’t have to worry about them slipping down or coming off!

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

Look great, love the pink beans! The short fur on the hands and feet is nice so it doesn’t hide the shape of the paws.

The footpaws are outdoor footpaws which is great too.

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 attached to the body suit and bounces around really well. I’ve wore the bodysuit for a while now and I’m always jumping around on it and it’s shown no signs of damaged, it’s very securely sewn.

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

Looks great! Nice, long and fluffy. It hovers just above the ground so it doesn’t get dirty!

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?

Everything matches to her design, I love the different furs used to give her a more “natural” look. It fits spot on and is absolutely lovely.

Overall Project Quality

Very happy! The quality is amazing and Taya always has lovely work!

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, we communicated through email and twitter! Communication was very good, she sent WIPs of the bodysuit progress which was super exciting to see.

Maker Response Time

Response time was very good!

Maker Professionalism

Very professional, even as a friend of mine!

Project Completion Time

Reason why it took over a year was because I took so long to do the DTD, however when I sent it over progress was good. I did pay extra to get it completed by CFZ 2017. 🙂 It was then delivered in-hand at the con.
