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 perfectly with my hair up, as it’s a little loose since I asked for an extra inch just in case- and glasses fit!. The lining is very smooth and well done, as well as comfortable! Vision is pretty good and the ventilation is good when I prop the mouth open a bit with two pieces of foam, as her jaw is static and a closed smile! Her ventilation is decent without being open but it’s easier to get out of breath. Despite that, her head is very cozy and I love wearing it!

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

Visually, shes beautiful! The fur has gone without matting at all and the symmetry is near perfect!.The shaving is even with no bad bald spots, and her markings are exactly as her reference sheet shows. Her teeth are perfectly sewn along with a velcro tongue as well! I’m very satisfied with her expression, and (as it’s pretty much the default for fursuits, it’s fun to play around with after getting eyelids made on top of her perfect expression!)

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

What I consider her special feature are her bangs covering on eye, which can be changed! She has a small tuft of hair that won’t cover the eye but imitates her actual bangs, and a second strip that can be flipped down on top of the shorter bit to imitate her long bangs! This feature was a pleasant surprise to me as I didn’t know how KingKrow would handle her bangs, and it was done well!

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.

The bodysuit fits perfectly! It’s not tight or loose in any areas. This was my first time making a DTD and I made the arms a little short, so the arms on the bodysuit are as well, but that’s hardly an issue since its fixable and it only shows when I stretch!, which isn’t often. The seams are strong, and I’ve run around in suit enough to know that the sewing won’t bust any time soon.The zipper facing inwards on the torso helps a ton with not snagging fur, and it perfectly blends in.The digi padding is easy to remove and put back and it’s very comfortable and light! The airflow is very good, as it takes a while for me to get hot in suit. Wearing under armour helps a ton as well.
The feetpaws are attached to the whole bodysuit and they’re very comfortable! I asked for half a size larger than what my shoe size actually is just in case, and that makes so problem while wearing them! It’s very easy to get in and out of.

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

Her patterns match perfectly to her reference sheet! The colors she found are gorgeous and it has received many compliments on how smooth the gradient is! It all looks spectacular- Everything is symmetric and the digi legs are perfectly shaped, smooth and anatomically correct

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 handpaws are very smooth and soft on the inside, with a material that stays cool for a long time. They’re stuffed and very comfortable to wear. Everything is well sewn, but since the arm sleeves are slightly shorter than what I should’ve done better to get, the black lining of the paws is sometimes visible but that’s my fault^^

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

They look great! They’re four fingered puffy paws and they look very anatomically correct and soft! The paws are one of my favorite parts of the suit due to how comfy and pretty they look!

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.

Comfortable to wear with a universal fursuit belt, although it’s decently static and takes effort to really wag it, it’s a simple tail to take off and put on!

Gorgeous! Her tail was brought to life perfectly and it as well has received many compliments! The markings are in perfect symmetry and the fur is even all around. The fur is so soft and smooth and easy to brush, especially since it doesn’t really need brushing much. It matches the ref sheet perfectly and the colors are gorgeous!

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

King Krow interpreted my concept art very well, even better than I actually drew it! Everything was followed exactly without issues to any changes I wanted to the pattern or a change/add on I had later on (her mane going down her back instead of stopping at the neck). The alterations were done quickly and everything I requested was met with agreement and followed through! My fursuit perfectly matches my design.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The whole suit is more than I could’ve possibly expected before it came to life. This was her first fullsuit commission and she took on her complicated markings like a professional. The ability to move around, see, and breath in suit is overall great, and the seams/fit is perfect! Nothing has torn or broken after exertion at the two cons she’s faced so far and I’m very pleased with the outcome!

Overall Project Quality

Very happy with the quality! There are no problems that I could complain about and every time I look at it or think about it only a smile comes to my face! It was totally worth the price

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

Initial Contact

I found out King Krow was open on Instagram, where I was searching through hashtags for open commissions. I DM’ed them for a quote and I quickly got a price and I got back to them and soon enough, a fullsuit was soon coming to life! It was very easy to understand what was needed, as it was all stated in their clear Terms of Service.

Maker Response Time

Responses were quick and easy, usually within 5 hours! Although time zones are a barrier for this speed at times^^ We began speaking over Instagram, but I switched to Twitter after having an issue with my account. This switch was no problem

Maker Professionalism

KingKrow was very easy to work with. They have a very pleasant attitude, speaking with the perfect in-between of professional and friendly. I was always reassured I was not causing any inconvenience when I asked for an edit, which was greatly appreciated.

Project Completion Time

There were a few ETAs that were passed, but it was totally worth the wait! KingKrow always let me know if there would be delays or when they thought it’d be done, and when my fursuit was finished and shipped, it arrived on time and in perfect condition!

Final Comments

King Krow is simply a great fursuit maker and will definitely gain a large following as they post more and more WIPs and complete photos, as a very underrated maker at that! I have recommended them to everyone who has asked me about the topic, and their prices also attract, as they’re not as high as you usually see around! Amazing prices for amazing quality is fairly hard to come by when you’re on a budget and KingKrow is definitely one to go to for that! My experience with KingKrow was overall a good one and I’d love the thought of getting another suit by them in a few years after they’ve improved even more honestly!
