[NO] Timbre the Dragon Partial by Kleo the Medical Dragon
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under $1000 - $2999.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
Poor. The head has no support in the back and is very large and loose. The face was lined with an old t shirt and was hard from the amount of glue used. Not good material to keep cool, lycra, neoprene, or spandex would have been a better option.
Nearly 20 loose pins were pulled out of the head. We were VERY lucky no one got hurt while wearing it, as there were pins poking out near the eyes and all around the face. Forgetting one or two is excusable, but nearly 20 is ridiculous and leads us to believe there may be hostile intentions.
Vision and ventilation however were very good.
The head was very cute at first glance, big smile, cute eyes, and nice, sturdy ears that also wiggled just right. However, looking closer, shaving was very uneven. There were many bald patches and patches that seemed forgotten about, especially on the seams.
There is a blatantly obvious seam in the dead center of the nose. I personally find it atrocious.
Teeth and horns seemed to have been hastily put together. Poorly made and hanging on by a small bead of glue. Also missing two teeth, which were very important to the character.
No lining on the eyes, looks unclean. The eyes are also not the correct color – the reference sheet shows they are a solid shade of blue, not black.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
One is unwearable. The other is incredibly small.
Today, I pulled these paws out again. One of the fingers popped right off. It was only basted (loosely stitched) on. There aren’t holes to put fingers in. It is simply unwearable.
They do not match the reference sheet either. We did change the paws to be all orange and to have gray paw pads specifically. There are no paw pads. They do look cute, however.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail was unwearable outside the box. There were no belt loops attached.
We also asked for a long tail to match the reference sheet, and it is not very long. Sorry, not everyone is 5’2″. My husband is 6’2″ and the tail looks tiny on him. The maker called this tail a “movable base”, which in fact is only a loosely stuffed tube of fur.
It is not close to the reference sheet at all. The tail is green with a white stripe and orange tip. This tail is all green, no white or orange to be seen.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
There are many visible gaps that were either crudely sewn, or glued together. There was also a ginormous hole in the top of the head when I pulled it back out after a while.
The suit does not fit at all. The head is too big and the hands too small and no belt loops on the tail.
We asked for a refund of $400. This means the maker was able to keep $800, which is more than their base price for a full partial. We have not received the refund. The maker has “tried” to give the refund, but has supposedly failed numerous times by either sending it to the wrong paypal, or ignoring our requests. Needless to say, we were scammed by this maker.
Do NOT commission this maker until they have seriously reconsidered their business practices.
UPDATE FROM 22 FEB 2020: we have taken the entire head apart and stripped the fur off. We have found 14 more pins, totaling around 34 pins left and hidden inside the head.
