[YES] Nova 2.0 Saber Head by PunkMarten
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Only one other issue came about and that was the feather on her ear was supposed to be magnetic, however this was an issue the maker discussed with me before they shipped the head to me and we agreed to leave it be and I did eventually see it directly on the suit instead of it being removable

HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
This is easily one of the most comfortable heads I’ve worn in ages. The lining in the head is incredibly smooth and doesn’t rub your skin. It’s tight but only enough so the head doesn’t rock and stays put where you want it.
The head is very proportional and looks great on and in pictures.
The mouth is plush and we’ll sewn so there isn’t a rough transition from mouth to lining. The teeth are incredibly made and we’ll installed and I haven’t had 1 issues with them moving. With saber fangs they are huge and anchored extremely well into the base.
I asked for a lockable pas through nose and it’s plush and super well done. All sewn and no glue marks at all.
The ventilation is absolutely incredible as the base sits so well on my face that you breath directly out the mouth so your not breathing into the head and hoping that the mouth let’s it escape.
There are several beautiful spots on this head that i will highlight. The shave job is impeccable. Smooth and no nicks. Lovely transitions from short to long fur.
The ears aren’t hard like there is hoards of glue in them and they are soft and pliable, However they keep their shape and sturdyness
The pickable nose is lovely and made with minky and fleece inside. There are no glue marks and fully sewn.
The expression is exactly as we discussed while chatting and the foam work being done. Revisions where made with the maker while they where doing the foam work and where extremely responsive.
At first while going through the work in progress the original eyes weren’t to my liking. The maker was super reasonable and did redo them. They have incredible vision as well.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
The markings where followed and when the maker wasn’t sure what looked right, asked and we shared wip pictures and asked me to redline what I wanted.
The overall concept art was followed so closely for markings. Nothing was missed
The response time was quick and communication absolutely wonderful. Even months after the commission I have shot them back a few questions and they have always and still remained quick with responses.
The head is flexible, durable yet super soft and has gone through many rough tiktok sessions. A few road trips and even tossed around a few times. The seams are strong and withstand everything I’ve put them through.
The maker was super easy to understand and asked pertinent questions for the commission. Measurements where clear and if I didn’t understand they cleared things up really quickly or drew pictures of where they were asking measurements of.
After this the maker insured to share more wips and was nothing but kind and courteous.
There wasn’t a eta for the project but the maker did state that they would have it done in a few months.
This maker is easy to talk to, shared a lot of work in progress.
I will stress again this was there first ever time taking custom commissions and the maker was absolute gem and pleasure to work with.
Despite the one hiccup about the eyes (everything was resolved with this and they where awesome about it in the end) I would 100% work this maker again in the future.
I absolutely think they where incredible for their first time and definitely worth the money.
I do believe however for the style and quality this maker could and should and certainly could raise their prices especially for just a head. They have much. Under sold themselves for this quality of work. I only paid 575$ usd for this wonderful head when they could have easily been charging around 700-900$ anything in that range I could have expected for this style and workmanship. However again I was their absolute first customer and I’m sure in time they will raise their prices.
Ps. Also if there are any mistakes. My first language is french. I did proof read as much as I could.
