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.

The head fits snugly without being too constricting or imposing pressure. A balaclava is sewn into the head and wicks away moisture, though I choose to wear a separate one as an additional cleanliness measure. Breathing is unhindered and ventilation is adequate without requiring heavy reliance upon a fan. Vision is unhindered beyond what is expected of a suit head, with minimal blind spots.

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

The fur is very soft, evenly shaved, and easily groomed, and the design is symmetrical. The concept art and head matched perfectly, with the playful expression I requested. The follow-me eyes were lovingly crafted and designed, and it shows. I am very happy with the results brought about by Sirus and Darkstory’s hard work.

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 and feet are comfortable and fit snugly. There is no difficulty in application or removal of either set of items, and neither hinder movement or risk exposure of skin by movement. The stitching on the parts is quite durable, and the crocs that the footpaws were built around are comfortable to wear for long periods.

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

There was no concept art for the hands or feet as they were an addition to the original order. I gave the SplinterFox crew free reign on the design, and they didn’t disappoint. The patterns match well with the head and form a cohesive flow for the design that will lend itself well to a full-suit upgrade in the future! The materials are pleasantly soft to touch, and easy to maintain, and the shaving is uniform. There are claws on both hand and feetpaws, made of a soft fleece-y material.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The head, hands, and feet work well together as a full set. The fit is consistent and colors match perfectly, and the suit is definitely recognizable as a SplinterFox suit.

Overall Project Quality

The project absolutely met my expectations and was well worth the price asked. Each piece is of superb quality, fit well together, and serve as proof of SplinterFox Productions’ hard work and dedication to bringing dreams like mine to life. I look forward to having Cedilla for a long time, and am sure the pieces are durable enough to be up for many fursuiting adventures.

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

Initial Contact

A friend brought to my attention that the SplinterFox twitter had posted an opening for an artistic liberties head. I direct messaged them that evening and we worked out the details in short order. They were very easy to speak to and very clear in expectations for the scope of the project and what they needed from me to get started. Payments for the project were made through PayPal.

Maker Response Time

SplinterFox responded quickly through twitter direct messaging and was concise. Eventually, we did move our main contact to Telegram, and they responded to the questions I posed in a friendly, helpful, and timely manner.

Maker Professionalism

The makers were very warm and genuine in their interactions, communicating clearly and giving frequent updates on any setbacks that occurred while also providing information on their progress on current projects and preparation for others in the queue.

Project Completion Time

There was a queue in place when I contacted the maker, and they communicated very well along the way, keeping myself and others well-informed of any hold-ups that came up and making sure all involved had an open line to voice any concerns or questions along the way. Their Trello was kept up-to-date and was shared to those waiting any time a major update hit. While the originally discussed completion date goal was missed, I was kept informed as they progressed through their work list. As soon as the items were ready, I was contacted about shipping, and, when the items were en route, was giving a USPS tracking number to keep an eye on the delivery. The items arrived safely and on-time.

I greatly enjoyed my experience with SplinterFox Productions, and while the wait was more than I expected, the results were well worth it. I would absolutely recommend them to others, and have been doing so! They were an absolute joy to work with and the environment that they maintain around them is pleasant, with minimal stress. Given opportunity, I will work with them in the future to make Cedilla a full suit.
