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 itself is quite snug, and the vision is a bit limited, but the ventilation is rather good. The mouth is large, and there’s a method the maker uses to make the cheeks more breathable as well. (But I’m not sure if I’m allowed to disclose it as it’s part of their personal work method)

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

The suit is very visually appealing with very minor imperfections! (One tooth looks a little sharper than the rest) The maker also implemented some of my personal art style choices into the suit to make it be more “my own” adding triangular marks on the snout where you see whiskers!

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 paws are super comfortable!!! The movement is limited, though that is solely because I chose the option of “bubble paws”.

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

Great! There’s a minor error on one of the pawpads where you can tell the sowing machine went over it, but it’s not all too noticeable and isn’t that bad!

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.

A little wonky, I have to have it pulled up and high for it to look right! (Although I assume this is normal? Remember this was the first suit I ever received!)

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

Oh my god, literally perfect. Super soft and fluffy!!!

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 was your concept art realized?

100% happy with it! At first it looked too realistic for my taste, so they edited what I asked to be changed, to appear more toony. After that I was more than pleased!

How well does everything fit together and match up?

It all looks like it belonged together!!! The character fits their style perfectly and I couldn’t be happier with the maker I chose : )

Overall Project Quality

Super sturdy! Honestly sometimes I wonder if there’s a thing such as “too enforced” because if someone tries to take the suit apart someday for some reason, I wish them luck XD

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

Initial Contact

Super easy! I contacted them over Instagram DM’s while their shop was open, and they responded rather quickly (and very politely).

Maker Response Time

100% satisfied. I only had one occasion where it took more than one day for them to respond, and that was it! Didn’t mind that wait either. Otherwise they responded within 24 hours with whatever I needed!

Maker Professionalism

No downsides here! They made sure to ask about my personal opinion on features and whatever they were working on. They sent frequent updates, and sometimes even videos. They sent a video with a “durability” test to me before it was ever sent out.

Project Completion Time

I am satisfied! It took roughly 3 months longer than planned, but keep in mind they moved during this period and it was also at the time the pandemic started (and throughout the year it occurred/still is). I’m also positive they had other matters happen in their life that they did not disclose for personal reasons. They made sure to tell me when they thought things would take longer than planned.

I loved working with this maker! They were very professional, while also approaching me casually, like a friend would. Super polite, hardworking, and very caring towards their customers. I’m so glad I chose them for my first purchase : )
