The maker was NOT a friend when the item was purchased, but they ARE a friend now

Prior Experience

No, this is my first fursuit

Informed Maker of Issues

Yes, but they had warned me before hand that the lining in the hoof had popped when they wore it for pictures. I told them not to worry about it since there was no visible damage done.

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.

Super comfortable, breathable, and the vision is fantastic. I’ve worn friends’ fursuits before, and none were this comfortable. The head is completely lined with a sweat wicking fabric. I had the option to choose what lining I wanted, it was very personalized!

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

Absolutely perfect. They had done a small sculpture out of clay to give a general idea of what the head would look like, and it completely exceeded my expectations. They worked with me to make sure everything was absolutely perfect, and ran everything by me before hand. The symmetry is SPOT ON, I cannot stress enough how absolutely perfect it is! The shaving is nice and clean, no patches anywhere. They asked if I wanted the fur to be soft, or to be rough like an actual goat. Being given that option just goes to show how much attention to detail is put into your costume, and how much they care about getting everything spot on! I went with some nice soft fur, very gentle to the touch and super cuddly! I was given the option of an open mouth smile, or a smile with his teeth covering the opening of the mouth (it would have been made out of a breathable mesh if I went with the toothy grin option). I went with an open smile, and the attention to detail in the mouth is incredible. Hand sculpted teeth with a nice attached plus tongue (which is the cutest thing on the planet!)

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.

They fit very comfortably! Though, the lining in the hands made it a bit difficult to slip the hooves on and off when my hands were sweaty. Easy fix, i just removed the lining, and its still extremely comfortable! They fit perfectly, not too tight, not too loose! These hooves have been against grass, dirt, concrete, carpet, basically any wall or floor you can imagine. Not once has a scuff in the fabric been made, or a seam popped. The lining was the same as the inside of the head, a plaid patterned sweat wicking fabric!

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

The hooves are absolutely ADORABLE! How they’re able to make flat hooves look well is beyond me. They even made some test hooves before making mine, again, running every single little detail by me (which I absolutely LOVE). Every color, on the tail, hooves, and face were all perfect. They were so patient with me being so picky with the colors. We had a hard time finding an orange I liked, so they even offered to custom dye some fur! We just went with some premade fur, but the patience with finding the right color was very nice. They sent swatches of every fur color and length for every part of the costume, testing both color and texture.

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.

Super light, bouncy, and fun! They even made me two tails to see which one I liked best, which I got to test wear. Perfect size and shape (and I can’t get over how bouncy it is, I am in love with it). The durability is amazing, I even tugged on the straps to see how it would hold up, and not a single thing happened to it. I’ve had kids tug on my tail before and it is still like brand new!

Absolutely adorable (and bouncy, yet again!) Perfect size and shape!

Final Comments

I seriously cannot recommend them enough. I am at a loss for words about the whole experience and the product!
Oni is sweet, polite, professional, and so so much more! The product is FANTASTIC, the durability, construction, wear, and just overall everything about my suit is everything I could ever ask for and more. I plan on commissioning them more in the future (with one commission being paid off by them right now!). If I could, I would get every single costume done by them!
