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 is very comfortable with great breathability, durability and styling. The head gets lots of compliments and is perfect for beginner fursuiters. There are no tears/rips/cosmetic issues that have come up since owning the suit. The quality of the fur is top notch and the build quality is just as much.

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

All sides of the suit are symmetrical, stylish and come with a variety of different looks (tongue, eyelids, etc). The colors matched perfectly with the reference sheet, and was even adjusted to match the suit perfectly. Shaving is very smooth and looks realistic. Everything within the appearance category is very well.

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

The suit came with eyelids, which are velcro’d to the eyes. These hold well and are very nice to give the character a flare. Along with that comes a realistic looking toony tongue, which is connected via magnet. The connection is strong and is very nice to have for a different look. All features are very well and are great to have.

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 paws are comfortable and agile, offering good quality with a cute toony look. All is well within this category.

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

The colors matched well and I was satisfied with the shaving and look of them. All good here as well.

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 made very well, although I do wish it stood more upright and not drooped since my sona is a husky. However, this is not ideally the maker’s fault. I do wish that they included a belt or piece that could hold the tail more upright for canine sonas with a curly tail/other style of tail.

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

The tail looks fantastic with no issues. The curl still makes me smile!

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


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

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The entire suit is fantastic and looks perfect to my sona. Thunderhowl has reignited my love for the furry fandom and my sona. I get tons of compliments and it allows for me to be myself in ways I couldn’t imagine possible. The fit has been great, and the makers have offered helped whenever needed with fitment, styling ideas and other related material.

Overall Project Quality

It’s fantastic quality. Seriously an underrated maker that everyone should look into for their first suit.

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

Initial Contact

Easy through Telegram or Twitter.

Maker Response Time

During the suit making process, it was well via Telegram and such. Lately, it has been a bit subpar.

Maker Professionalism

The professionalism was well and offered answers to questions that I had.

Project Completion Time

There was no ETA given for the completion, and Thunderhowl does not typically give these out. If you’re fine with waiting a bit, then it’s fine. You typically are given updates throughout the process regardless.

Final Comments

Skye and Aiko are fantastic people with great working habits to ensure a quality product to call your own. Their attitudes towards work, ideas and crafting is above any I’ve seen while looking for other makers awhile back. It shows as well, as they are guest of honors at Texas Furry Fiesta next year. Congrats guys!
