Character Concept Art


Photos of Completed Product


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.

Fits very well! There is even enough room on the inside to wear my glasses inside if I wanted! It is slightly more heavier than my other fursuit heads, but it’s not a problem. Ventilation and vision are great! The head is lined on the inside.

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

Very happy! Looks completely true to my character. Symmetry is perfect. Fur is super soft. Expression is super cute and happy, I love it!

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

Lupe put magnets in the ears to attach the “earrings”. Plus I can attach the ears together for a cute and funny look! The magnets also anchor the ears to the sides of the head so I don’t have the worry about the ears getting flipped. The inside of the head has a tag featuring the Lupe Suits logo.

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.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

It’s very comfy! It’s a little tight on my upper shoulders, but it’s not a problem and does not affect me. It’s very easy to get into, the tail and feet are attached, and I don’t need to wear a belt. The body is a bit hard to walk in however, but only because it’s a dropped crotch digitigrade fursuit. It’s tiring to walk long distances in it (such as skybridges). This is not due to the maker, this is because it’s a dropped crotch fursuit. It also gets hotter very quickly but again, this is not due to the maker.

I am absolutely in love with how the bodysuit looks! The legs are so cute and short and I love them! Symmetry is perfect and matches my concept art perfectly! Fur is super soft!

The feet are attached and tail are attached. But she built zippers into the feet and tail so I can remove the stuffing for easy storage and washing, which I do appreciate immensely! The feet has clear vinyl sewn over the bottoms, so you can view the pawpads but not need fursuit sandals. This is a very unique feature and I love it! Very well done!

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 hands are very comfy and have labels on the insides to say which is right and which is left. The feet are also very comfy. They are “slipper style” feet with no shoes. They are built directly into the body and have zippers where I can remove the stuffing for easy storage and washing, and has clear vinyl sewn over the bottoms, so you can view the pawpads but not need fursuit sandals. The hands and feet are very well made and I am very happy with the quality of them!

Very happy with the hands and feet! Shaving is very neat and symmetry is also perfect.

Special Attachments and Features Information about any special or unique features this piece has with regard to the reviewer's satisfaction of them.

The feet have clear vinyl sewn over the bottoms, so you can view the pawpads but not need fursuit sandals. She asked me if I wanted the clear vinyl on the feet, you can choose not to have it if you want. And the hands have tags on the insides to say which is the right paw and which is the left paw. Very happy with these features!

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.

The tail is attached directly to the bodysuit, so I am happy to not need to wear a belt. Very easy. Seems to be well-sewn on! I like how it waggles when I walk around in suit.

Very happy! Matches the concept art well!

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

Very easy. I contacted her through Twitter.

Maker Response Time

Very satisfied! But since she lives in Australia and I’m in the United States, I was aware there may be delays with responses.

Maker Professionalism

She was extremely professional, kind, and polite and answered any questions or concerns I had.

Project Completion Time

Since my suit was a trade, I was completely fine with waiting a while for it. It was completed on time for MFF 2018 and I received my suit in person at the convention.

Final Comments

I am absolutely happy with how my suit came out and I cannot recommend this maker enough! She is super kind and polite and very accommodating! But if you don’t live in Australia, be aware of the time zone differences (like when I was awake, she was asleep over there). It did cost a lot to ship my DTD over to Australia so be aware of that too. She did not send me any WIPs, but she sent me photos of the completed items (but I imagine if she made a mistake, she can probably easily fix it for you!). But honestly all in all it was very worth it!
