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.

Alecrim Carmim’s heads are amazing. They have a very complex “helmet” system in place that makes their heads truly one size fits all, there’s a bit of a learning curve but the fit is very comfortable and really worth the extra steps. The head is spacious, with very good air circulation due to the hidden ear ventilation. You can easily fit glasses inside the head as well, which is great for me as I have to wear my prescription glasses most times. The big kemono eyes allow you to see very clearly in front of you, there are some blind spots (of course), but I can navigate by myself most of the time, without the need of my handler to constantly guide me.

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

The appearance of the suit is stunning, I remain in love. The head symmetry is pretty good, the fur used is very good quality, soft were it needs to be, with the shaving and the transitions being also pretty good. The eye painting is starting to fade a little bit, which the maker themselves pointed out on my pictures. They have already changed the eye technique though, so I’m pretty confident the latest fursuits won’t have this problem. We’re also arranging to repaint the eyes on the close future. One thing to note is that part of the eyes is made with amazing glittery resin, looks very cute and it’s super durable. The nose is also made of resin and it survived me accidentally hitting my face in the wall intact.

The concept art had to be changed to better fir a 3D space and feel every single change was flawless, they help translating the pictures better than I could hope for.

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 a very unique helmet-like fitting system, so it’s adjustable to different head-shapes. This works very well! As mentioned previously, there’s a learning curve, but it’s actually super simple to do once you get the hang of it. The neck piece is also separated, which helps!

Other than that, the head comes with a detachable posable tongue and tons of accessories, like ribbons, hair clips, eye protectors.

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 hand-paws are SUPER FUFFLY, the quality is very good. I have very small hands, so posing is a little hard, but far from impossible. My husband has bigger hands and his also fit very well, so it fits a good range of hand sizes. They stay in place very well, I can pose in many different ways and they don’t slide off. So far, not a single seam has popped, the claws and pads are very securely in place.

The feet paws are also very good quality, I have both interior and exterior paws, they are very comfortable to walk and wear, although I would advice against going in too rough floors even with the outside paws, so they can last longer.

Both hands and feet are well finished and lined.

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

As I mentioned earlier, the hand paws are extremely fluffy, which makes them fit very nicely with the size of the head, making the character look very cohesive. The claws are made of resin and are gorgeous, they almost look like real nails.

The feet paws have a very teddy-bear like factor to them, which I love. They are also very cohesive with the hand paws and head.

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 big but not heavy, it fits very comfortably and it doesn’t slide out of place. The height is perfect, being very big but just above ground, and the quality is great. So far, even with all the different places I’ve sit on, they look as good as new.

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 perfect, it’s exactly what you would expect from a red panda tail and even the number of stripes was as requested on the character sheet.

WingsGives information about any wings the costume may have.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Because I have narrow shoulders, after a longer time wearing it, the wings tend to slip a bit, being one-size-fits-all. But they are easily adjustable and in no way it spoils the experience, being a cute touch of the whole outfit. They are durable but malleable, due to their structure, so if you need to set a pose, it can be readily done.

They are extremely adorable and the design follows perfectly the sheet. The details look like an aerial pattern, which makes them wonderful. The fluffy part on the back merges really well with the back of the neck-fluff, so the wings really seem to be coming out of your back. I really adore them.
