Relationship With Maker

The maker is NOT a friend

Prior Experience

I currently build premade partials and heads, and I’m now starting to take commissions from time to time. I’ve been to a couple cons in a suit and out of a suit.

Informed Maker of Issues

There were no issues and they made sure I knew there was no exact ETA/deadline which I was perfectly fine with!

Wear Time

30+ hours at home, and small local events before Covid hit. Not to a con yet.

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.

At first I was a little afraid of heads with plastic on the eyes but the vision in his head is outstanding! The only thing that got in the way was fur blocking the ventilation but it’s not terrible. That issue isn’t their fault and it’s just because my character has a long beard so of course it was to be expected but doesn’t bug me! I find brushing the beard aside helps this issue. The inside of the head is so perfectly formed and shaped to the head which makes it easy to slip on.

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

Both afar and up close he has wonderful looks to him. The ears are perfectly centered on each side to the head and the eyes are aligned great. I found no issues and they even got his freckles perfect!

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.

The body was very moveable and form fitting. No extra fabric and easy to slip on. I have no issues moving either and the seams are very well done on the inside. They got his tail spot on from his ref which is supposed to be a slim wiggly tail. The other major detail was the long and short fur specifications on the suit which they nailed perfectly!

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

The body looks neat and nice, like I said, the fur is perfectly fit to what his ref shows and by looks, there is no extra fabric showing as it fits well. The back mane lines up well and the zipper is so well hidden!

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 and feet fit perfect. I wasn’t expecting shoes to be built in the feet but I found that’s perfect to keep them from being too loose. The hands are slightly loose but don’t fall off, the length on them is great and easy to tuck under the sleeves on my own with how moveable the fingers are

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

Both the feet and paws look fantastic and the furs match to both. The claws are fantastic and easy to see. I’d say the toes on the feet are big but it matches his style of character wonderfully so I have no issue with it. I think that’s part of their style with feet Anyways!!
