[NO] Bee the Cat Partial by Sugar N Spice Costumes
General InformationGives some information about the item and the person writing the review.
Filed under Felidae
Filed under $501 - $999.
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 comfy and breatheable with a large field of vision. The inside is lined with a soft, lycra-like material (i am unsure) and is a little larger than my head, but still fits well. the mouth is open far enough that you can eat/drink through the gap while wearing it, which helps with breatheablilty.
Was shipped as shown in the original advertisement. He is a little lopsided, as the nose and mouth are uneven and the felt around his eyes is asymmetrical. The shaving is decent but around the eyes the glue and fur backing is visible, but the fur is high-quality otherwise. I am happy with the expression however he can look a little strange from the side as the foam carving for his mouth has left a long indent on either side of the face.
I have since modified the head to add features such as eyebrows but i knew he had no eyebrows when i first bought him and this is not a maker issue.
Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.
HANDPAWS ONLY. The handpaws are a bit large, but i was not asked for any measurements, so there may have been issues if i had smaller hands. The paws are not lined and as such the backing of the fur can be uncomfortable and itchy to wear. The fingertips are stuffed and more comfortable, and the paws seem to be of decent quality with no popped seams or other issues. As they are a bit large they do get loose/almost fall off occasionally but again there were no measurements taken.
The paws are nice to look at and i quite like the embroidery around the pawpads (which are vinyl). the shaving is rather noticeably choppy and uneven around the fingers, resulting in me trimming down the fur myself on both hands.
TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.
The tail is a small bobtail that is worn with a belt. The beltloops are a bit small and i have been worried about them potentially busting but nothing has happened yet.
The tail part itself is good and as requested. however, the base is attatched rather roughly and the stitching and glue is visible while wearing. I am paranoid of the base and beltloops busting and falling off but they have been sturdy so far despite appearances
OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.
Sugarnspice are somewhat infamous for their terrible customer service and this is still the case, something i wish i knew before purchasing. they are awful at providing updates, ignore customer inquiries and cannot meet a deadline to save themselves. i’m glad i only purchased a premade partial as by other customers’ accounts if it was any more i probably still wouldn’t have my suit. As mentioned above, i had to threaten a paypal dispute to get my premade and mostly completed suit finally shipped two months past the original purchase date. i love my suit but i would highly highly recommend getting yours from a different maker.
