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 is great to wear. Fits my glasses inside and not too tight. Has a small fan built in and a custom inner lining that looks cute and doesn’t show when worn. The inner lining makes it more comfortable to wear and absorbs the sweat. With the fan off the head can be a bit stuffy but the air circulated well when it’s on. Vision is good in suit and no issues with fogging.

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

The symmetry and match to character design is wonderful. I was very pleased with the appearance of the suit. Shaving appears even. The fur is soft and smooth and lays nicely when brushed. The markings are all hand sewn so there is no risk of bleeding like there would be if they were airbrushed on. The follow-me eyes look great in photos and with the moving jaw as well I’m able to get some nice varied expressions in pictures.

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

Moving jaw – works decently well. My other suit did not have a moving jaw so it has taken some getting used to. I have to exaggerate my speech quite a bit to get movement to show.
Detachable plush antlers – this was a request I made in order to accommodate easy storage and transportation of my suit. The maker achieved this by using industrial magnets, and during wear time I have only had one of the antlers detach once while dancing. I required help to reattach it simply because I had no way of seeing my head to find the magnetized spot.

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.

I got plush cloven hand hooves and they are very comfortable to wear. I am able to pick things up while wearing them and have good range of motion with them. They fit well and have an inner fleece lining that absorbs the sweat.

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

The hand-hooves appear symmetrical with even shaving. Fur is smooth and soft and lays flat when brushed.

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.

Tail has elastic straps at the base that are hidden when worn and fit many different widths of belts. Very well sewn and easy to put on and take off.

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 appears symmetrical, great base as the elastic straps do not show when worn, fur is smooth and soft and lays flat when brushed. Markings are all hand sewn so no risk of bleeding that airbrushing would have.
