[OK] Nattrim Dragon Shark Fullsuit by Faruku
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Issues about the Tail were discussed during the production.
Filed under $1000 - $2999.
HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.
It was just too narrow and short, prolonged wearing during a walk ended with a massive headache due to the stress on my head. It was a about a 1.5 to 2 hour walk before it had to take it off, because it was too uncomfortable. The hinges of the jaw on inside was not sanded down and razor sharp, I could feel it scathing my cheeks quite a lot when opening the mouth.
Neck fur was too short and skin was visible when I was looking down in the fullsuit.
After the head was “Repaired” it was returned even smaller, cannot be worn by me at all.
Vision was very good no issues here.
Ventilation was limited due to the hinges issue and over all Ok.
Overall the head did not live up to my expectations as the muzzle appears very round and “Horse” like compared to narrow snoot on the Art provided. Yet the shape of the was very narrow and doesn’t quite match the body when put together in proportions.
Head was missing details, marks and the distinct eyebrows, overall very little air brushing.
Ears were pointing outwards not following the horns.
Multiple Ear plugs were requested and granted but never received.
There was no upper jaw / teeth set, but maker told me later that this was common from her suits unless specifically requested.
There were holes around the horns.
Has the Mohawk that connects to the body by NFT, it looks nice.
Exchangeable ear plugs – feel very flimsy and fragile, overall the cast feels low quality and doesn’t match the look. Black and Red plugs requested but only White were provided. In my head I had hoped for “Normal” stretches with big holes, but on the head they are massive disks screwed together with a tiny screw.
Fan was requested and paid for, was never installed. Maker offered refund but it was rejected by me.
BodyGives information about the main body of the costume. If reviewing a separate set of pants/legs or torso, the answers would also go in this section.
Very comfortable and breathable, there is room for a cooling vest underneath.
Digi padding is easy to install and take out for cleaning.
Tail is connected by zipper and is also quite easy to put on.
Zipper is very hard to use and gets stuck in fur quite easily.
Legs are a bit too short and results in visible ankles in certain poses.
Many raw edges on the seams inside of the suit and with fur poking through, this gets stuck in the velcro on the cooling vest.
Body looks very good and I am quite satisfied here.
the Shaven scales look great.
Matches the art very well.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
Hands and Feet are quite comfortable to wear and fits quite well.
Looks perfect, feet are very big and chumpy as requested.
Hands are small and with nice claws.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
First tail is nice to wear and have a good weight to it and attaches easily to the body suit.
However it is a danger to glassware in crowed situations like cons at tables / bars, as it is very pointy and goes straight back from the body with very little droopage, this was originally not requested in the order but it was made quickly and without prior authentication, later agreed to “Leave as is”.
This tail ripped a seam after the first use at a walk, this was repaired by the maker.
Later commissioned maker for a smaller more Con friendly tail, which it is, tiny and very droopy.
Just as easy to use as the above one.
Both high quality in materials.
First tail looks very big, cool and raptor like.
Very high quality, but was not the requested design.
Second tail looks very small, droopy and dolphin like.
Ok quality, was the requested design, but looks a little sad.
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
The suit in gernal fits me quite well, but the head as previously discussed is unusable by me.
Suit fits makers style, the head I feel is within their style but looks rushed.
I felt the suit took longer than it should have and I was not involved enough with certain items / parts.
The quality of the parts I like are quite high and I don’t feel like it made with lower quality materials.
I feel it is worth the price paid but the wait was far to long.
Later discussions were done over Telegram for Measurements and DTD.
It was very easy.
Excuses in their “Makers Chat” were common about personal life, but seemed appropriate.
Suit was Finished in November 2018.
Items were shipped within expected time.
Faruku is nice to work with and is definitely good at their job, but during out project it could have been done better, and we should have had better communication both ways.
I would recommend them for projects related to big cats as this is definitely their expertise.
I like talking with them at cons and they are very happy to be around with all their suits.
I hope they will use this review to hopefully better involve their customer in the smaller parts of the project and double check their willingness to do the project and make sure items looks right to the customer before finishing them up. Better double check than remake.
