Relationship With Maker

The maker is NOT a friend

Prior Experience

I own a suit, Jayne. This is my second fursuit owned.

Informed Maker of Issues

Yes, after wearing the suit the tail shifts due to weight. Told creator about this and they are going to add a zipper to keep it steady, but also so I can still wear it as a partial.

Wear Time

10-15 hours

HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, 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.

I bought the base from DVC and carved it out myself. I also attached it to the balaclava so I had the correct fit. I then sent the base with the ears to the creator and they attached the ears and furred the base. The vision is amazing for the squinted eyes that the character has. The ventilation is good as well, since the nose holes were carved out.

When washing the head, it was fully submerged. Nothing ran, but when I pat dried the eyes, black did come off. The eyes will need a new coat of black since it wiped off and left white streaks.

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

The head looks great from the outside. Nothing looks uneven and it’s pretty symmetrical. Though I do wish there was more green fluff in the ears, this is my fault as I didn’t say to add anymore when asked. The shaving looks good. There is a part on the cheek that is shaved down too much, exposing a little seam, but nothing that is noticeable unless you look closely. Overall I am satisfied with how this turned out.

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.

The body is comfortable. I purposely made the DTD bigger on me so I had more room, since my weight fluctuates a lot and I don’t like things being extremely tight on me. The seams seem durable and I had flexibility with the extra wiggle room. There is no lining inside the suit, just the fur backing, which I don’t mind at all and actually would prefer it that way over lining. Airflow seems good due to the fact that I made the DTD bigger on purpose. The padding in the legs fit perfectly and the digi form looks good.

The body looks good from the outside. You can tell it’s bigger on me, but I purposely made the DTD bigger. The symmetry is good and the shaving is even where it was shaved. It matches exactly the concept art. I was also satisfied with the materials used.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

The hands and feet are perfect. These are probably the most comfortable feet and hand paws I own. The bottom of the feet is used with a thick durable foam and had little to no wear on it even after prancing around on concrete for hours.

The appearance of the paws and feet are amazing. They blend in well with the rest of the suit. The shaving is even and well blended. It matches the concept art perfectly.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

The tail is longer and heavy. This tail is not attached to the suit. It was being held up by two belt loops. There was also Velcro on the tail and a piece in the suit to try and give it extra support. I feel as if the Velcro did nothing since fur would get stuck in it and the tail was too heavy. The tail shifted a lot and the flap of fur that would come down over the tail to blend it in with the suit would move and expose where it was attached, showing the belt loops. I let the creator know this and they are willing to attach the tail to the suit with a zipper so that it won’t shift and can still be used for a partial. The quality and durability of the tail itself is good.

Once the tail is attached to the suit I think it will flow a lot better with the rest of the suit.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this suit and how it turned out. The start date and end date are a guess, as I had pieces made and sent to me before I decided to make it a full suit. Creator updated me well through out the whole process and completed it in a timely manner. Everything fits to how I wanted it to.
