General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under Ursidae
Filed under $1000 - $2999.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The head was built around a baseball cap base and includes a battery-powered fan. It is comfortable; the jaw took a little time to figure out, but it works well.
I LOVE the head. I love how the eyes came out; the way they are designed they seem to follow you wherever you look. I love how she added the grey fur because I’m a greymuzzle. I get compliments all the time!
Battery-powered fan in head works well and a pocket is provided to stash the battery out of the way and it holds the battery snugly. The jaw, which was initially separate from the head, is now attached. The maker adapted a Halloween sumo costume to create the padding. Because it is a store-bought costume (the sumo costume) that wasn’t designed for a lot of wear, I have had to patch up tears from time to time. The suit includes polystyrene claws on feet and hands that look amazing.
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.
Other than the sumo suit padding she bought elsewhere, this is a high-quality suit. The fur and stitching are extremely well-done, and none of the stitching has separated or unraveled after much use. The foot padding looks terrific and is extremely durable. Eyes, teeth, claws, etc. are all high quality as well.
I get compliments all the time on my fursuit because (IMO) it is the best bearsuit out there. The inspiration came from Disney’s Country Bears, and Beastcub delivered a perfect adaptation that doesn’t imitate the Country Bears but employs that style and feel I was going for. I love how the zipper in front is completely hidden by the fur, how she provided a neck ruff to also hide skin, and she created extra-long forepaws to prevent any arm from showing, as well as cuffs around the ankles. No sign of human on THIS fursuit!
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
The feet were built around my shoes, so they fit perfectly; the forepaws were built around a pair of my gloves and also fit well.
I adore the foot padding, which looks amazing and is made of a tough material that I can walk outside on and not worry about tears or breaks; love the claws, which are very in tune with a real grizzly’s.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
As noted above, Beastcub is a pro in every sense of the word. She does a quality job, keeps communication open with her customers (no hiding or excuses), and if there is a problem she fixed it at no extra charge if it was a problem with the original result (if you ask for enhancements later, then there would be a charge, of course).
