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.

The head of the costume fits nearly perfect on my head and will only slightly adjust if I snap my head sideways really fast. The build quality is very nice, and there is a lot of padding so it does not hurt to wear at all. The vision is excellent and I can see just about everything in front of me with little to no blind spots. Ventilation is decent with a hole in the mouth to breathe in and out of. I am able to wear the head for many hours at a time without taking it off. The interior of the head is not lined, but I purchased a balaclava to extend the life of the head.

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

I fell in love with design of the premade as soon as I saw it. Upon receiving the product I was not disappointed at all with the appearance. The fur was all shaved properly and there were no loose threads sticking out. The head is almost perfectly symmetrical, the only part that is slightly different are the eye holes. One of the eyes is slightly more round than the other but I was only able to tell after many hours of wearing the head because it was almost unnoticable. The eyes are follow-me and they are able to achieve a wide range of expressions from different angles. The hair is almost like a mohawk but lays flat to one side allowing me to reposition it for a new look if I want to. The fur quality is excellent with nothing wrong. I am able to brush it evenly without pulling anything out.

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.

The premade came with a set of handpaws and are overall excellent quality. The fur used to make the pawpads is incredibly soft to the touch. The paw pads are also padded and squishy. The finger holes are very spacious, however the paws themselves are slightly large. I am able to keep them on my hands as long as I want to, but they begin to loosen after extended wear with sweat. They have never fallen off my hands, but I can easily fling them off my hands at any point if I wanted to. The build quality is very well done and I have had no issues with popped seams or fur falling out.

The handpaws look very nice from the outside and they allow for a full range of motion in the fingers. They are big and puffy which is the look I love to see. Both hands are identical and I can switch them between my hand and not tell the difference. The shaving is even with nothing sticking out where it shouldn’t be. The fur is the same used on the head and is a very good quality. I can brush it to make it look new and nothing falls out when doing so. The colors of the pawpads are very bright and help make them visually pop. The claws are made of fabric and have not shown any signs of falling off.

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.

The tail is very sturdy and does not hang low. It fits through a belt and sits comfortably on my waist without moving where it shouldn’t. The tail is sturdy enough to wag it freely and it is not heavy. It is easy to put on because I just need to feed it through a few belt loops. The tail is properly padded and stitched very well. I have not had any issue with popped seams or tearing anywhere.

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

The tail is perfectly symmetrical and the colors match the rest of the suit. The shaving is even throughout and nothing is sticking out. Same with the head and paws, I can brush it without any fur falling out. It is the same fur used in the rest of the suit and is very soft to the touch. The colors go very well together and really bring the character together. I like the look and feel of the tail being sturdy and held in one place. Because the sturdiness of the tail it is able to keep its form without sagging or falling down.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

All of the colors match up together as the same fur was used to make each part of the suit. There are no visible seams, and there are no gaps anywhere. The head base used to make this was a prebuilt base from a different maker, so the looks] is a little different than the normal work, but the quality in stitching and shaving is consistent with everything else that was built by them. Everything fits very well and I am not worried about anything falling apart after extended wear.

Overall Project Quality

Overall the product quality of the suit is amazing, and there are no issues to be addressed. The fur is evenly shaved, the stitching has no popped once, and I can wear it for extended periods of time without needing to stop. This suit was definitely worth the price I paid for it and can expect to wear it for a very long time.
