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.

Very uncomfortable. The 3d-printed head – while gorgeous on the outside – presses against my throat, and even more so when I open his jaw. The head is quite large and loose, and I have to add extra head padding every time I wear him. It does not absorb sweat effectively. Ventilation is decent but leans toward the stuffy side. It’s very difficult to see out of and there are numerous blind spots. I have to turn my head to see anything besides objects right in front of me.

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

Incredibly pleased by the head’s appearance. It was perfectly symmetrical The floppy ears are perfectly like a nubian goat. The horns are black and forward-facing. The eyes have to be my faorite part of him – they’re slightly follow-me, match my own eye color perfectly, and are really expressive! Even shaving and smooth hair transition from neck to shoulders. Back zipper is well hidden.

I have adjustable durable magnetic 3D-printed black horns. Strong magnets are firmly glued in to the horn bases and the corresponding spots on the head. Even so, I wish the magnetic force was a bit stronger.

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.

While the suit for ease of putting on/off and wearing, it is incredibly hot and stuffy once it’s zipped up plus combination with the head, hand paws and hooves. It appears to absorb sweat effectively, but I don’t know the material it’s lined with. Has a front hidden zipper.

The major and most disappointing aspect of wearing him was when I first got him out of the box – the fursuit smelled very strongly of body odor. It made me gag. He needed two washings in a machine with odor-removing detergent before the odor was gone.

The outside – again – is absolutely phenomenal. Even shaving all throughout and 100% symmetrical. Fur feels good and not choppy. Leg padding is easy to put in and take out for easy washing. It mostly matches the concept art. The tail is sewn into the fursuit’s butt (no belts or loops) and feels very strongly attached. I’m able to swish my tail with the right moves!

Tattoos –

One felt skull is sewn into the right thigh of the fursuit, and the letters JDNG is sewn into the left thigh. There were a couple of issues with them. The concept art had the skull in the middle of his chest, and the maker said she would not be able to put it there. The “J” of the JDNG” tattoo is starting to unthread hread after only two washes of the bodysuit.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.

The hoofpaws look and feel amazing. There are three 3D-printed hoof fingers on both paws and a fuzzy mitt for the hands/wrists with light padding. Hoofpaws aren’t known for being dexterous, and mine are no exception. Very durable and the hoof fingers won’t be falling off anytime soon. The hoofpaws are probably my

The 3D-printed feet hooves, while stunning to look at, are uncomfortably heavy and hot. The base is a plain black 7.5 sized loafer with the hoof fur sewn all around it. The hooves are quite prone to scratches which is a bummer.

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

Absolutely no complaints. Symmetrical, clean shaven, nice fur texture, blends in well with the bodysuits arms and legs, 100% matches the concept art!

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Overall Project Quality

I was mostly happy but had a huge disappointment when I opened the shipping box and the smell of body odor blasted into my face and up my nose.

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

Initial Contact

Very easy. Contacted her through her website. Purchased the suit from her website.

Maker Response Time

Not satisfied. I sent out numerous check-in emails to her and several months would go by before I heard from her.

Maker Professionalism

Very friendly and kind maker. Treated me like a friend. Did give me details about her personal life when she had to explain numerous times why my due date had to be pushed back. It took her almost a year to send out the completed suit. I ordered in October 2019 and I initially was told it would be shipped by Christmas. Didn’t happen.

Project Completion Time

It took her almost a year to send out the completed suit. I ordered in October 2019 and I initially was told it would be shipped by Christmas. Didn’t happen. I was often left in the dark about completion and updates.

Final Comments

Pros – the fursuit is exceptionally beautiful and unique. I love his overall look. The quality matched the maker’s price point. The maker was incredibly kind and apologetic throughout the suit making process.

Cons – uncomfortable to wear, head digs into my trachea, smelled of body odor, heavy hooves, multiple project completion dates as unfulfilled promises, difficult to get prompt replies, tattoo starting to unthread.

I hate not recommending this maker, but there are too many issues with the suit’s wearability to really enjoy expressing me through him. A product can look flawless, but if the mechanics don’t work or are uncomfortable, that beauty gets shelved.

    I just have to mention fursuits, especially fullbody digi suits, are all hot and stuffy. That’s something you should have looked into before commissioning one.

      Hi Birb, that’s an excellent point. I was trying to be as honest as possible and this site’s “prompted questions” suggested to write about breathability and stuffiness while in suit. But you’re absolutely correct! 🙂
