HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
The head is very comfortable, it fits my glasses perfectly and is easy to take on and off via a zipper in the back. The head is lined professionally with quilted broad cloth. My face sits very close to the mouth where there are raw edges which can tickle my nose occasionally. The ventilation is Ok, i do need to hold the mouth open to catch my breath after putting it on or doing some large physical movement, however just walking I am comfortable. The vision is basic fursuit vision, no peripheral, center blind spot, and no seeing below the nose, my face sits very close to the eyes which does enhance the vision compared to larger heads that have also fit my glasses.
The appearance is exactly how I see my fursona. Symmetry is perfect for being a uniquely carved head. The shaving is slightly choppy however I don’t notice it until I get close. The fur feels high quality and luxurious, very soft and sturdy. The hair on the head is brush uniquely to bring the fur out from the backing, I’ve seen many Kemono makers use this technique, it was used very well here. There are some spots on the head that have dried hot glue, non on the fur just on the felt/ lining on the nose and mouth, there is also one small raw edge of fur near the mouth that makes a hold, that is the only spot that I wasn’t impressed on but didn’t care too much as it’s an easy fix with a Hanson stitch. The zipper on the back of the head was white, making it very noticeable around the dark brown hair, even when brushed. This has been easily fixed with just coloring the zipper. I can take the head off with the zipper still zipped up, however I can not put it on like that, the zipper is very easy to use and does not get stuck in the hair. There are some spots where the white thread shows through, primarily around the ears and mouth.
The only add-on was a neck puff/ ring. This amplifies the neck fluff greatly on my fursona and it’s exactly how I want it to work. It is reversible and comfortable. It can be tight if the neck ring and the neck fabric of the head, sometimes feeling choking however it’s easy to separate and fix with help or if I’m calm. I can not take the head off easily if I wear the neck puff, I do need to pull the head neck out then take it off. It was LLM’s first neck puff and they did a great job on it.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
The hands were unlined, which I wasn’t expecting. I requested for finger holes in the palms which were easily accessible. I did need to buy Lycra gloves to use the paws as the fur backing is not comfortable to me. They are very basic and have good movement. The feet at first were very short and showed my feet from the back, this has been fixed and now are higher up and comfortable. They are built on shoes I sent so they fit perfectly, they have been worn through concrete areas heavily and are still very durable looking and feeling.
Appearance could be better. They seem to have been machine sewn quickly as there is fur caught in the seams, there was also a very visible knot on one of the black paw pads with white thread. The fur is very soft and durable. The feet paws look really nice and after being fixed fit perfectly. The shaving shows the toes clearly without having claws and being a solid color.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail is one of my favorite parts of the suit. It fits snugly on my belt, while there is a small struggle, mostly because of my belt shape, it’s very durable and comfortable to wear. I have worn it while sitting in a car for some time and it wasn’t bulky or in the way. The tail doesn’t move much, only when I am very forceful, which I like.
The tail looks great in all pictures, it fits close to my belt so it don’t show or bend my belt. The pattern does make my fursona look like a raccoon which gets many confused species guesses but that’s exactly how she’d like. It’s very soft, stuffed moderately, and accurate to my character.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
I am very happy with LLM, on my twitter I gush about my suit and how great my maker is anytime I can. I wish I could wear her out more often however the wait will just make it that much better when I can go out! I have gotten many compliments, in public and on my profiles, about how cute and great this suit is.
– Great communication
– High-quality build
– Public Trello
– A few spots of thread and glue showing
– Unlined paws (A con for me, may be a pro to others)
