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 fairly comfortable to wear, I have no issues getting it on and off, my only small concern with the actual head is the balaclava inside of the head, as I worry it might be a little fragile so I tend to be careful to not rip any part of it off. No had measurements taken but overall it fits me perfectly, vision is fairly great in the head too as well.

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

I’m very pleased with how the head has turned out It’s a little different than what I had imagined but I loved how Sanctuary has done on it, the character design is matched very well, the shaving is great. The fur has been also easy to maintain and keep tidy. I also really like how the head’s eyes look too and the expressions, It has a movable jaw, however the haw isn’t too great at movement unfortunately, as I have to exaggerate movements with my mouth to make it open.

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 hands and feet are very comfortable to wear, I do wish that the paws had some more proper padding on the inside of them to make them more comfortable for longer periods of time, same for the feet, I really like them however my issue with them is I worry over time they may get loose, as the padding is made around the shoe itself, and the paw padding doesn’t go further up the leg to help secure the feet onto my legs in general. Overall however I’m impressed.

The feet and paws match my sona design however they aren’t quite what I had hoped for them to turn out like, they get the job done and match with the suit, although it’s not how I envisioned them to be and what I would want out of hand paws and feet paws.

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 very good, it fits securely onto my belt and I have no issues with walking about with it on, It’s durable and and doesn’t seem like it will have any issues for a long time.

I really love how the tail turned out, I didn’t expect the size to be what it was but I am very pleased with it none the less.

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?

Overall, I am happy with the suit but there are some issues which I wish I could change about it, like the padding in the suit, I wish it was a little more comfortable. The prices that Sanctuary charge are great for value, and I would definitely recommend them to people looking into suiting for the first time or are curious on how it all is. The quality for my first suit has definitely impressed me a lot, and I have had lots of fun using the suit in the time I have owned it and I have high hopes it will be great to use for a long time to come.

Overall Project Quality

It was a brilliant experience, some minor issues here and there, I feel as if it could be improved in some areas, however the suit seems like it will last me a long time to come, and all the parts work great when put together.

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

Initial Contact

It was fairly easy, a friend had let me known about the maker as he had also commissioned his suit from Sanctuary and was able to provide me with the details to contact them on Facebook.

Maker Response Time

Response times could have definitely been better, there would be periods of time where I wasn’t sure what the progress was on the suit, I think more WIPs would have been great to help me see how things were going.

Maker Professionalism

Other than the waits at times, the maker was very easy to work with, very helpful and was a great experience to communicate and work with.

Project Completion Time

I was very happy with the time taken, I was told it would be completed by Confuzzled 2020, and whilst it was cancelled, the suit was still delivered on time and fast too
