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 comfortable to wear, it’s snug to my liking. The balaclava inside is soft and forms to head shape nicely. It doesn’t overheat quickly, and the only noticeable blind spot is in the middle, albeit not a very large one.

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

I love how the head turned out appearance wise, the color of the eyes stand out wonderfully against the color of the fur. The fur is easy to maintain and stays within its “grain”.

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

The special feature would be the follow-me-eyes, and they work just as expected. Furthermore, the eyes are still rather easy to see out of.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

The maker and I worked out what sort of red/orange color I wanted for the primary fur color, and I’m really happy with the result. As previously mentioned, the cream color on the muzzle/neck and the eye color looks great as well. The ears stand up on their own very nicely, and the style of the head is awesome as well, I think SplinterFox has a very nicely developed and unique style.

Overall Project Quality

The head looks great and feels great, the maker was easy to contact, and arrived quickly once shipped. Very happy with the product!

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

Initial Contact

Contact was easy, I found out about a slot opening through Twitter, and began contact through messages there.

Maker Response Time

Contact was rather easy, it began with a Twitter direct message, and then all further communication took place through group or private telegram messages. The maker was quick to respond to any messages I sent out.

Maker Professionalism

I was happy with the attitude of the maker over all, when specific business related information needed to be discussed, they were clear and to the point, but at the same time they were casual and friendly enough to be comfortable around.

Project Completion Time

Completion time did take longer than expected, but it was communicated with clarity and honesty on the maker’s part. I, along with other commissioners in the telegram group understood the delays as a whole, and I was not disappointed with the amount of time taken.

Final Comments

I think that SpinterFox Productions is a fursuit maker with a distinct style and high quality building capabilities despite being lesser known compared to a number of other makers. The commission process was fun and easy, and the time taken for completion was worth it to me. I have yet to wear my head to any events, but I look forward to doing so, and SplinterFox made that possible.
