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.

Super comfy and fits nicely! It’s lined, and said liner is custom printed (has little versions my my makers sona all over, super adorable!) Vision is great, along with ventilation.
Can wear my glasses inside head, but I have to place my glasses inside head first.. not a huge issue though! There were moments when the visibility got weird, but that could be due to my glasses and the sun reflecting in an odd way. Otherwise, the vision is SUPER amazing, very little blind spots. Can suit on my own due to it.

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

Grape did have to change up the patterns a bit due to how complex the patterns were, not to mention it’s asymmetrical in design. But she still kept true to the look! The ears she asked me to provide pics of what types of ears I like, then we came to a decision that i liked. The ears are a bit uneven, but cant really notice unless you really glance at the head from the front.
There is also some small white bits on the back of the right ear next to the purple dot, might be thread? Overall, honestly not an issue and not very noticeable.
Eyes look amazing! They are even and look perfect from the front. There’s only a small bit of hot glue on the left eye that I noticed.. but honestly not an issue.
Nova also has a mohawk, which Grape did an amazing job on, the front poof is cute and poofy, and the back part of the mohawk is nice and even. The shave job is SUPER SMOOTH. No uneven fur at all. I did find a small bald spot on the right side of the muzzle, but was able to hide it by smoothing out the fur to the side. Even if I didnt shift the fur over, the spot can only be seen if someone were to really inspect the head.
The nose is a bit crooked on the top, doesn’t bug me too much.
Mouth was constructed really well, doesn’t look uneven at all. Front and inner teeth are made of soft fabric, and are firmly in place.
The tongue is also made of soft fabric, and is removable via velcro.
Overall, the head looks SUPER AMAZING, all the fur used feels high quality and super soft. The seams are amazing, and the head is super durable.

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.

No feetpaws were bought with the partial, only handpaws
Despite my hands being small, the handpaws fit amazing and dont fall off when I move around.
The insides have been lined, super soft and feel nice on the skin.
Quality is amazing, they feel super durable.

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

She went with a 4 finger pattern instead of 5 like on the ref sheet, but I was totally ok with it!
Fur used on the paws were the exact same used on the head, super soft and amazing quality. The fur on the fingers have the same amazing shave job as the head. Fingertips have retracted claws, sturdy black fabric was used to make the look. Fabric was glued on, but they are nice and sturdy, nothing was loose or falling off. Paw pads were made with the same fabric on the nose, super soft and look really cute!
Handpaws feel sturdy, no loose stitching/holes were found.
Super happy with how she made them!

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.

The tail is worn via belt.
It sits super well on my backside, and has a nice bounce and wag to it.
The straps on the tail for the belt feel super sturdy, seams are super well done
Tail itself is nice and light despite the size, doesn’t feel like it’s weighing me down at all!
Feels super durable overall, love it!

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

Tail design was changed from the ref due to how complex it was, was totally fine with the changes and still stays true to the character!
All the markings are nice and symmetrical, nothing out of place. All fur used was still the same used on the rest of the suit, so still high quality and super soft.
Tail is smooth all around, doesnt look bumpy or anything.
Absolutely nothing out of place, tail is perfect!
