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 very comfortable and fits perfectly! It’s not too heavy, and doesn’t wobble when I move my head. The vision is incredible, with a wide range of sight. The ventilation is also very good. The muzzle is hollowed out to make for a good amount of airflow. All in all, a very comfortable head!

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

It looks exactly like my reference image! The markings are all accurate and clean, and the colors match the reference really well. The shaving of the fur is very even, and the transitions between fur lengths are smooth. The follow-me eyes work just as intended and are very expressive. I couldn’t be happier!

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

The head has magnetically attachable antlers. They stay on very well, as the magnets used are a good strength. They’re very light and don’t encumber the head at all. The antlers are very well made and add great character to the head!

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.

Both the hands and feet are very comfortable to wear and fit perfectly! They stay on really well and don’t break the magic by showing any skin.

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

The hands are very cute and plush. They are accurate to the reference and are symmetrical to each other. The fur is evenly shaved and the claws are well placed. The feet are really soft and nice looking. These are also symmetrical and accurate to the reference. I especially like that they go up my calves and cover my shins.

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.

The tail is quite large, but the belt straps hold it to my body nicely. Due to the size, it can be hard to maneuver about with it, but that is no fault of the maker. It was to be expected with such a big tail.

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 looks amazing and matches the reference really well. It’s so plush and soft that I’ve spent time just hugging it sometimes. The markings are very clean and the colors look really nice.

How was your concept art realized?

As the designer, and artist, of my reference sheet I know the design front to back. Gray did an amazingly accurate job bringing that design into 3D. I saw no inaccuracies at all in the final prodect!

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything feels really good to wear. The sleeves and the paws match up cleanly. It all fits perfectly, nothing too loose or tight. Gray did a really amazing job bringing Lark to life in their fursuit style!

Overall Project Quality

I am incredibly happy with how my fursuit turned out! It’s absolutely a dream come true!
