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.

The ventilation on her is fantastic. I am able to wear her for long periods of time.

The fit was a bit loose as it was made to fit upwards of 24″ and I am about 22″. I put extra padding in the head and it now fits perfectly.

The vision is good. I don’t have much experience with other fursuits, but I find her easy to see through.

The head is not lined, but I was given a balaclava as part of the purchase.

Spot cleaning her is easy and I’ve had no issues with seams popping so far.

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

The markings and stitching on the suit is very clean. The colours are nice and I like the feel of the fur.

The markings and foam work is very symmetrical. The only potential issue I’ve noticed is one of the ears keeps sticking up instead of being floppy, but I think that’s an issue of foam moving inside of the “skin” of the fur and will be easy to move.

The shave job is pretty good. There are some spots where backing shows through too close of a shave, but it’s not visible from afar or in photos.

I love the purple eyes.

The nose and inner ears are made of a very soft pink material that is good for booping.

She came with a fullbody ref sheet which matches her design exactly.

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 paws are a bit large on me, but I’m still able to open doors and hold things. As well as put them on by myself.

It is lined with a nice, smooth material.

I haven’t had any popped seams at all and the fur has stayed nice and soft through multiple washes.

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

The fur is a very nice colour and the shave job is good.

The paw pads are glued on so they do tend to peel off after heavy use, but it’s easy to fix and I don’t find it ugly or cheap looking.

The pads are made of the same material as the nose and inner ears which is very soft and cuddly.

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.

I have a nub tail.

It is very wiggly and good for wagging, however the elastic is quite loose/thin so it tends to sag. After some children pulled on it, there’s a noticeable stretch to the elastic, but that is no fault of the maker.

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

The tail is very cute! I love the split colours! The seams are clean and it is symmetrical.

Like the rest of the suit the fur is soft and the shave job is good. It matches the ref exactly.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


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

How was your concept art realized?

Since the concept was already made, being a premade, I found she followed along with her reference sheet very well.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The same fur was used for every part so it matches and works together well. Everything is good quality and no part looks worse or cheaper than the other.

Overall Project Quality

I am very satisfied. I love the suit and I’m happy it was my first one.

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. She has posted the premade for sale in a Facebook group we are both in. I commented showing my interested and we got in contact through messenger.

Maker Response Time

All contact has been done through Facebook Messenger. Her response times are great and she gives clear answers to any questions.

Maker Professionalism

She is a very friendly and open person. She is clear about her processes and is happy to help fix any potential issues one may have with the suits.

Project Completion Time

Once I had finished paying it off, it was shipped within the day and arrived at my place very quickly. Shipping was free due to it being the first premade she sold under her business name. We do live close to one another which makes shipping fast.
