HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
Out of the box it was a tight fit with squeezing pressure on cheekbones. I have a rather average 23 inch head but maker had commented head was very loose when they wore it so I can understand not catching fit issues when a mannequin cant comment that it may be too tight. I solved issue myself by removing foam from the inside of the head till the fit was perfect.
Lining is a type of cotton poly blend that works great, no issue with extra heat retention.
Vision is very good, center blind spot matches reletivly close with natural vision overlap so there isnt heavy tunnel vision. Eye mesh is large hole plastic that works very well and has no issue with paint clogging holes or eye strain.
Ventilation is stellar, muzzle lines up great with nose and mouth and allows for you to breath fresh air.
Appearance is fantastic. Anatomy clearly reads as a big cat and head looks great from every angle. Head stlye and expression matches the personality of my character.
Shave is clean and even over the whole head, backing is visible around nose but airbrushed to blend into fur color. Airbrushing is strategically applied to blend small areas of the head like around the eyes. Airbrushing on muzzle marking is great and does not affect fur texture.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Only difference between my reference and finished product is nose and tongue color which I think turned out great anyways.
A key part that really helped with my character being realized properly was all the communication the marker initiated, asking what feature I’d prefer and if everything looked good to me.
I’ve been a fan of Yellow Freak for years, they have a vision when they craft and innovate new solutions to make the best result possible. It was a joy to see that in action when they crafted a unique foam base to make my character’s horns exactly how I always imagined them. It’s really that unique creative view that makes them stand out from the rest and why I am happy to be a Yellow Freak suiter.
