[NO] Viper the Rat Partial by Fish R Furiends Studios
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under Glires
Note: This maker originally reached out to me with an offer of a free tail since they saw I was scammed out of a suit before. They also offered discounted suits to me so the price I paid for mine does not match their actual pricing.
Filed under $501 - $999.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
6/10- Overall the suit is not too bad to wear but there are a few things that can make it uncomfortable or tedious to wear for too long.
This head features LED eyes which has the battery pack in the snout. From time to time the wire will rub against my nose (this is the corner of the wire where it meets the battery pack itself so it’s sharp) and it hurts and can even leave marks.
Second, this head features silicone piercings which make the head extremely heavy (several pounds), ad this often causes neck strain if worn for more than an hour at a time.
Third, The blind spot is the worst I’ve ever had in any of the heads I’ve owned or worn and it’s directly in front of me.I can’t see directly in front of me unless I turn my head to the side. It’s so bad to the point where I can not see a person standing directly in front of me if they’re more than a 3-4 feet away.
Fourth, there were magnets placed in the mouth which were supposed to allow the suit to have an open or closed mouth depending on what I wanted at the time. The magnets were so strong I could never have the mouth open unless I put a prop in the mouth. I eventually had to cut the magnets out because it was too hot and hard to breathe.
8.5/10- This fursuit has all the markings near perfect and the craftsman ship is great on the head. Very nice shaving and symmetry.
Only things wrong are that one if the markings is not showing as much as I’d like (partially hidden by the Mohawk) and she does not smile at all and is constantly frowning/ looks disapproving when I wanted a sly smile.
10/10- LED eyes worked perfectly and never had any issues with them.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
7/10- The hand paws fit very well and are comfy to wear until I start to sweat. The lining of the paws makes it very difficult to take off and re put back on if I need to take them off for anything.
Feet I have still yet to receive after 3 years.
9/10- The hand paws look gear! I just wish they went slightly further up my arms
Feet paws have still not been received.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
8.5/10- The tail sits well on my body but it’s a very still/ packed tightly with polyfil. There’s not a lot of give to the tail. It can also be kind of heavy due to the polyfil.
8.5/10- The tail includes wire so the tail can be bent but with the amount of polyfil used on the tail it can’t bend very much or be posed without looking broken.
Airbrushing was featured on the tip of the tail and it looked dirty and wasn’t as dark as shown in original photos in real life.
8.5/10- The wire in the tail couldn’t be used well due to the amount of polyfil and didn’t stay in more than two or three poses.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
The whole experience has made me dislike and nearly hate a suit I should love.
They would not give clear answers when I asked how things were coming or to see photos when they said they started/were working on a part of the suit.
Maker did offer a refund for a bodysuit I was waiting on fur several years and responded calmly whenever I got a response. But other than that, I can’t say anything positive about communication.
Waited 2 1/2-3 years for a bodysuit before asking to be refunded for it and the feet are still being completed despite having the rest of the partial for year and a half.
This maker does excellent work when they actually finish the work they owe. But the way they handled my commission and treated me as a client is inexcusable. I can not tell people enough to find another maker other than them. I would not recommend them to anyone .
