Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.
He fits great. He was a lot bitger and a bit heavier than my other head that was very light and small in comparison but overall fits great and feels great. The vision is a bit dark but other than that 10/10 for visibility and ventilation.
Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.
Looks exactly how I expected! They got his beard right and his yellow markings under the eye are proportionate to how I drew them in the concept art. They gave him seperage locks of fur to make it look like hair instead of a giant thing of fur some makers do for hair and I appreciate that. Good shave job as well. I’ve had this suit for over a year now with quite a bit of use and have yet to find a single hole. Only bad thing I have to say is that to me he Looks a little wonky from a side view perspective
Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.
The head comes with magnetic eyelids that snap on with ease, and im not sure of this was intentional or not but since its one magnet on the sides closest to the beak/nose bridge I cab slide the eyelids giving him the option of looking tired or angry.

How was your concept art realized?
Very satisfied. I made a quick concept art describing certain details and all were followed.
How well does everything fit together and match up?
Great experience! I was NOT expecting him to be done so quickly, I was in no rush and I never once asked for an update. They sent me many WIPS from all sorts of angles and when I had a question they responded in a timely manner. The amount I paid for no longer reflects their current prices but I think thats great because they deserve more ror the quality they pump out. Everything looks great and he still has no holes or problems! He looks amazing in Retro’s distinct style.
