Character Concept Art


Photos of Completed Product


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 fits well, I can wear my glasses inside, a small 5V cooler allows me to breathe more easily, the jaw opens comfortably. The vision is decent, a palm-sized blind spot in the front and roughly 90 degrees view angle overall.

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

The tufts on the ears are slightly different, but it’s barely noticeable, and overall I am happy with how the head matches the design, even if the markings are not precisely .

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.

I am happy with how the body fits. After the first try the maker adjusted the body to fit me more tightly. All stripes are sewn in, so there is no concern when washed.

I like how the body looks like, both the front and the stripy back.

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 feet were an indoor type, with sandals as a base. The foot fıts very tightly, I regret choosing sandals instead of slippers as a base because it is a bit harder to put them on as the result.

The hands fit a bit loose at the fingers, but still enough to grab things.

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

Despite hand and feet not being attachable to the body the fact the long fur and the fact that the body overlaps them means my skin (or the black underamour I wear) is never visible, and I love this. The claws of the handpaws are made from the polymer clay, and the feet claws are sewn from the short fur. I chose fleece fabric instead of silicone rubber for the paw pads, but regretted it a bit because while it is more flexible, it is wearing down faster than I expected.

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 tails is held on a belt wrapped around my body, I can put it on through the hole easily enough and I’m not afraid of it being detached if somebody pulls it.

The curl and sewn-in stripes look nice, transition between the body and the tail looks smooth.

How was your concept art realized?

I had several points in mind when thinking about this suit:
– It should be recognizable as a tabby cat
– It should look cute
– I should be able to open the jaw to be a bit more expressive
Completed suit met all these expectations and exceeded them in some regards, people were saying it looks good even when compared to a lot more expensive suits.

Even though due to the difference between the art style and suit style some stripes had to be omitted I am still satisfied with how it fits the planned design.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The suit fits well together. I can dance, play and take all kinds of poses, nobody has reported any visible gaps to me.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

I contacted them via Telegram, and we were discussing the whole project there.

Maker Response Time

They were always responding quickly.

Maker Professionalism

They were respectful of my wishes and were clarifying every detail in the design and every possible variation, making sure it matches my expectations.

Project Completion Time

I wanted the suit to be ready by the 2019 EF, they warned me in advance they cannot guarantee it to be ready by that date, despite that the maker managed to complete everything but the feetpaws so I was suiting at EF using my feetpaws from the previous suit. One month later the suit was finally complete so I was able to suit at the comic con in October. Overall I think they did it quickly enough.
