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 head is lightweight, viewing angle is good. The front is foam base, while the back is only fabrics. That means it’s easy to acomodate different head shapes, and also can be folded to a quite small size.

From different heads I tryed, it’s one of the easyest to keep on for a long periode of time. Also, since there is no hard material inside the head, there is no risk of injury if you would fall or go a bit to wild while suiting.

The maker says you can machine wash the head, but I haven’t dare yet to do so, only gentle water on surfance and spray inside.

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

Head matches perfectly my character sheet, witch is pretty simple. Fur selection matchs my body, even if it was build by another maker some years ago.

AlphaDogsStudio uses foam base from another Danish artist that they created together. That means you pretty much know what you’ll get in advance shape wise, no major surprise. It’s there choice to work that way, I like to know in advance what I buy.

Overall I’m really please with the look and it matches perfectly what I had in mind when I comission them.

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

I got two extras with my head that are neat, and I would recommand to anyone wishing to comission AlphaDogsStudio :

– Magnetic head lids, witch are nice for, you know, a bit spicier photos … 🙂
– Two tongues, one short for cute photos, and one really long, for silly ones. The long one even has a magnet at the tip to attach it to the side of the month.

Also, the head was delivered with a carry bag and an owner certificate.
