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.

It feels comfortable. No issues with the foam stinging. I would appreciate it if the mouth was movable and having a little more room for glasses. It still fits well.

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

The head looks great! I love the little foam fangs and the hair tuft is awesome!

2 fangs on the side of the mouth, glow in the dark eyes. Both look great and there are no maintenance issues.

BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, the answers would also go in this section.

It’s good and easy to wear. The only problem is it does feel a bit too tight, but that is probably on me for gaining weight.

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

Looks fantastic! I’m very satisfied with how well the stripes match up to my reference sheet.

The only thing I don’t like is how the zipper is placed in between the sewn-in muscles. The gap it creates is relatively obvious. The maker and I have agreed to send the suit in for repairs and relocate the zipper

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

Muscle padding (Sewn-in), Digitigrade padding, Butt padding. The digitigrade/butt padding is hard to put on so I don’t bother with it.

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.

They feel well. I do have a zipper attached to both feet paws. They do a great job of keeping my legs/shocks from showing!

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

Both of them look good, no particular comments

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.

Really good. The only complaint is the foam didn’t take long to flatten.

Only problem is the fur matting, otherwise perfectly fine!

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything looks great and feels great!

Overall Project Quality

I am very happy with the product. It was relatively inexpensive when considering all that I got on it!

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

Initial Contact

Very satisfied. I had commissioned them previously.

Maker Response Time

All communications were on Telegram. Very dissatisfied with contact during the commission. There would oftentimes be several weeks with messages being left on read, and a few times where messages were not read for a month.

Maker Professionalism

Apart from my messages being neglected frequently they were professional. No need to talk about personal life.

Project Completion Time

Barely satisfied. My suit was due for MFF 2019. The suit was started with barely a month before the completion due date. It barely arrived the exact due date (as in the date before I flew out to MFF) and it could have very easily missed. I was very lucky to have it in time.
