The head fits well and is very roomy. It’s a 3D printed head and very comfortable. There’s a fan in the nose to keep me cool. It fit great and very spacious. Lots of room to breathe. The vison is great for what a fur suit can have. There’s no issues with the head. The padding inside is well done.

OMG I can’t say anything bad really. The way it was made makes her of a lot of emotions depending on how you pose. She as a cute little smile and when mouth is slightly open, you can see her little cute teeth. The lashes are made of fur, giving her a unique feature. The inside of her ears are filled with minky material and it’s super soft. She does have a few unnoticeable flaws but that makes it’s even better. Too perfect would have looked like the maker was not making her by hand. The shaving is great and well done. Even her floof is made so she have her signature style. The neck fur is long enough to cover lots so when bending the head in any directions you can not see the wearer’s neck.

The only special feature for the head is the fan inside. It’s well made and gives a good decent amount of air when on. I never had another suit before so I can’t realy compare.
It’s loud but to be expected.

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.

The wear is perfect. It fits to my body just right and it’s easy to dance with. Very comfortable and well…. VERY HOT! hahaha
No issue when it comes to the sewing. Nothing as teared or rips when I was wearing it.
There’s no Lining inside but that’s okay. I don’t think I would have like lining inside anyway.

The fur on the suit is thick and very soft to the touch. The patterns on it are well sewn and I have no complaints. she did however, add longer sleeves so that it’s goes over the hand paws properly and wont show my skin under the suit. She used high quality fur and is noticeable. You can tell by the thickness and how it flows when I wear it. They did follow the reference sheet to the letter.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

Hands and feet are great and comfortable. They added Crocs shoes in the feet to make sure it was comfortable when wearing them for long time periods. The inside is not Lined but again I don’t mind one bit. They fit snug just like I wanted and the feet paws are very comfortable!

The tail fits great and right on spot. It curves just right with the body shapes and is just above ground so that it’s not dragging around. It wiggles perfectly with each step Yumie takes. It’s well made and very soft.

Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

All together this suit is well made. It feel good and I do not feel trap inside the complete suit. There’s room to move and dance and jump around. Moving with the suit is no issue. Everything is sewn right and it not coming apart. All parts are all matching. You can tell the maker put some love and care into it.

Overall Project Quality

I believe for the price I have payed it was more then it should have been. Some maker out there are asking for so much and all of their work seems to look the same. Here and The Lioness and The Loom, each projects are different and unique. They use different ways to make all suit different! They are very friendly and do go beyond to make you happy. I believe that they put lots of work and love into what they do. Nothing is perfect but that’s what makes it unique. Suggestions where made as the suit was coming to life and Item added with no fuss. As of the price, I think it’s a fair one. I do believe my suit will last for a long time and if I do run with a issue, they won’t just let it be… They form a special connection with what they create and I think that’s very special and tell a lot about them and how they care about their products.

Thank you The Lioness and The Loom!

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

Initial Contact

I actually found the maker locally from a fellow suiter that suggested me to them. They explained that I would have a better experience whit them. I messaged her through their Facebook page. The communications was clear and they even went beyond to answer all the questions I had and all that I needed to bring them to get the project started.

Maker Response Time

It took seconds. They answer time is very fast. They keep updates clear and explain very well what they are doing.

Maker Professionalism

I would recommend them to anyone that wish to have a pleasant experience. They where very nice and easy to work with.

Project Completion Time

It was completed in outstanding time. Best part is I was able to go pick it up and try it on then. (And many times before to make the perfect fit as I live in the same city) The communication with them is awesome! They make sure you are happy with all they make. I never had an issue. If I told them I didn’t like something they reassured me that once it’s complete it won’t look like it is… and surly…. it was even better! They took the time to explain why it looked odd and once shaved it would look perfect. And yes… each time I was surprised and super HAPPY
