Photos of Completed Product


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.

It fits perfectly, so perfectly that other than the vision loss and restricted airflow it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing it! The ventilation is amazing, was able to do a 4K in full suit without too much trouble! Vision is fantastic in that I don’t need to turn my head that much see 90 degrees of my front and after a few seconds after putting the head on I don’t see a gap between the eyes. The head is lined with a lycra balaclava and cleaning it is doesn’t take long at all!

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 is spot on and matches the character sheet. The shaving is so good that it’s more like the fur was bought at that length and put together. There was one seam that you could see if you were looking for imperfections but when I had the body suit lengthened I sent the head back as well and it was fixed! The fur is super soft and easily brushed. I love how the head looks and since it has a movable jaw and follow-me eyes I can get quite a few different expressions.

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.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Body is super comfortable to wear with zero restrictions on movement. Super durable, I’ve put a ton of hours on it already and it still looks brand new! Interior isn’t lined and has construction marks on the inside but it has zero impact on appearance. Air flow is amazing, if there is a slight breeze and it is seventy degrees fahrenheit and there is a slight breeze then I’ve been cold!

Symmetry is fantastic and I don’t think any shaving was required for the body but I’m not sure. Transition between furs looks seamless it’s so good! The fur is super soft and brushed very easily. I couldn’t be happier with the materials the maker picked!

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 hands are feet are very comfortable to wear and don’t hamper movement at all. My wrists and ankles did show at first but that was a problem with my DTD and the maker lengthened it for free! Both the hands and feet stay on once I put them on unless I want them off, plenty of kids have tried to pull my hands off but they haven’t come off yet. Haven’t popped any seams yet, wore out the first paw pad and sent them back for a retrofit with their new material and that fell off but it was a super easy fix. Claws fell off but were easily glued back in, the climate in my area is far different than what the makers are used to. The shoes were built off of a shoe I picked up at a local store and shipped to them.

Symmetry and shaving is even. They both use the same fur so they are both super soft! The hand paws are super hard to keep from matting in the palm area and eventually I gave up keeping it nice since I wear the suit so often. I’m satisfied with the materials used, handpaw pads are minky with a polyfill stuffing. The claws are from DVC and they’ve visibly worn down a bit.

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 is comfortable and doesn’t restrict movement. Super easy to put on even with putting on and taking off the suit by myself every time. The quality and durability is superb, have had kids yank on the tail and it hasn’t phased the straps or the seams at all!

The shaving and symmetry is on point. The colors and markings follow the concept art accordingly!

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

They followed it exactly and didn’t require or request a new reference sheet for the commission! There were no simplifications or changes with the design as I very likely wouldn’t have tolerated it. They followed the reference sheet to a T.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The suit looks absolutely amazing when all the pieces are worn together, no gaps between the pieces and the colors match up perfectly! Everything fits rights where it should be and doesn’t catch or snag on anything. It is exactly what I expected when commissioning them, looking through the previous works is what made me go with them!

Overall Project Quality

It’s so much more than I expected it to be, with the stories of people passing out in suit from overheating and dehydration I was apprehensive about wearing it but it isn’t that bad!

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

Initial Contact

I was browsing furaffinity looking at different makers and sent them a note asking about a commission. The quote form had all of the required measurement information on it with an example for each!

Maker Response Time

It was maybe a couple hours after I sent the initial contact and after sending the quote form they informed me that they had made a discord server which made it super convenient and easy to communicate!

Maker Professionalism

I was treated excellently and treated like a friend. Communication was clear with progress pictures to boot!

Project Completion Time

There was a queue with one person ahead of me. I asked if it would be done by some date but a mixture of things mostly on my end (having to redo the DTD) prevented it from being completed on time. Tracking was provided and I think they used USPS but I can’t remember for sure. Arrived on time!
