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.

Weight of the mask is properly distributed and fits well even with glasses on (glasses do fog up as expected but in most cases not to badly) so comfort of the head is great. Breathing is no problem and although currently no fan installed there should be room for one if needed in the future. Vision cone is pretty small as it is tear duct vision this was to be expected, although can in some occasions be bit of problem in combination with fogged up glasses.

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

Pretty much spot on with existing artwork of character and although in general a nice cute look can get some different expression out of him. Shaving, symmetry, et.al is as expected from a hand crafted item if you look closely might see a small spot here and there that might have been done better but nothing that detracts from the overall experience. The fur choice is excellent both in look and feel.

Hands and feet match design, nothing much to say.

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.

Feels really good to wear the tail, weighty enough that it has a nice bounce but still light enough that you almost forget it is there.

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

Tail matches appearance of character.

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 fits and matches well, and fits together. When stretching there might sometimes be some gaps with the arm sleeves although this also depends on the shirt I am wearing so minor overall and most of the time doesn’t detract from the overall experience (mostly only on photos).

Overall Project Quality

In the end I am very happy with how Botch came out and how he looks and feels to wear, he is well made and fun to wear and believe that with proper maintenance will be here for years to come.

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

Initial Contact

Found about open slots on twitter, filled in webform and was contacted with the further information by email. Was pretty clear what information she needed.

Maker Response Time

Response time is good, no problems.

Maker Professionalism

Comes over as very professional but still friendly

Project Completion Time

Although not asked for a specific time the suit was finished quickly and sent off with tracking provided, sadly did end up in customs (even tough all the needed forms where filled in) and thusly arrived quite a bit after sending although this is more the fault of Dutch postage and customs
