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 has some padding in the cheek area that I was not anticipating, but the head fits easily even with a balaclava and my glasses! it is lined and cleans easily. I don’t have overheating or fogging issues. very comfortable to wear for long periods of time, vision is as expected given the width of the nose. the head came with removable eyelids which, even when used, do not cause any significant issues with vision beyond what is expected as the mesh is fairly large.

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

symmetry is lovely, fur feels fantastic. I absolutely adore his expression and the overall appearance of the head – I think it is some of the maker’s best work. some of the shaving comes close to the backing but I am familiar with the furs used and know this to be expected due to the nature of the fur. there are no visible bald spots and even up close, the head is incredibly visually appealing.

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 a bit snug as they are stuffed, but not difficult to wear. dexterity is about as poor as you would expect from puffy paws. they are not uncomfortable to wear and I have not had an issues with popped seams despite being fairly rough with them.

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

these are some really cute paws! I’m in love with the appearance of them. some of the backing to the fur shows in the crevice between the finger and palm, but it is only really noticeable when bending the hand back and looking for it. I’ve worked with this fur before and know that it sometimes occurs with this fur type at tight seams, so I do not think it was avoidable and do not see it as a major flaw. the shaving looks as good as the head did, no complaints.

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.

tail has a standard cap with nylon straps. fits a belt and sits normally for a tail. not too much to say as it truly is just a standard tail. have not any any problems with 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 is beautiful. good symmetry, no twisting, the exact amount of bounce expected for this tail shape. no complaints whatsoever.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

it looks gorgeous. I’ve had many compliments because it is a truly fantastic partial. I’ve since created some parts to go with it, the maker was incredibly helpful with finding the necessary furs, and it looks great. this partial is among the maker’s finest works and I could not be more happy with it.

Overall Project Quality

incredibly pleased. this is one of my favorite suits, both that I own and in general. he’s a dream. I could not be happier.

rarely had a delay in communication, was prompt and consistent throughout.

Maker Professionalism

they were perfectly professional and friendly throughout our interactions regarding the partial

Project Completion Time

as it was a premade, there was not much wait. there was a lull without much progress as I purchased the premade before it was fully complete, but I received the partial in time for the next event I had planned without needing to request a deadline.
