Prior ExperienceYes, I have a 8 year old fursuit that was made by a local maker "Asher the Dragon". The suit is old, but well maintained.

Wear Time48

Informed Maker of IssuesThe use of the resin horns made it a bit heavier…..something i may have to just get used to… head is a bit loose, I gave the measurement. First time I didn't have a suit that was returned to the maker to adjustments.

Overall Project QualityStill very cool suit, wish makers were closer to me to work on a partner/co-op project.


Components


Head

Wear SatisfactionThe head is fitted to my head…the Jaws move and nuzzle is squeaky (a bit troublesome to get it to work). Good vision (I wish the snout was longer, rather of sacrifice the vision for bigger snout). Horns are a bit on the Heavy side, just for to remember when I tilt down. This makes the head a big more heavier than expected. For toony I was hopping for bigger foot-paws, but these are more walk-able.

Breathable with Fan, although a bit bulky I think (hanging from the mouth), These maybe upgraded later to smaller micro fans.

The movable jaws moves, but slightly.


Visual SatisfactionLooks somewhat plushy, . The horns appears to be a little more yellowish and the claws are a bit too white for any translucency. Drakie looks very cute.

One horns looks a little different that the other. I suspect it was cased to fast without curing correctly. (should have been made more hallow for weight)..

The shaving was done well, and dark purple I love.

The expression is cute, for follow-me eyes. I felt the work was a BIT RUSHED…but came out okay. May need some tweaking down the line, but that how things like these are…return for adjustments.

SHipping the suit can be better, though arrived at the con with some issues with the head jarred….there was fur sent but was not used, that should have been used for padding on shipping.



Hands

Wear Satisfactionthe hands fit…never had a 4 finger hand..cute..wish the paws were attached to the sleeves (tweaking would be needed).. Wish they were a bit tighter though, may need adjustments (after i get the full sleeve/electronics built).

Lining is not needed, although I sweat, I maintain all my suits and clean them out so they not leave any horrible oder.


Visual SatisfactionThe claws look good on picture, although could have used a more translucent material.


Tail

Wear SatisfactionThe tail is nice, and soft. Wish the spikes were plushier with LED's inside rather than hard resin. Might of the bright LED will show though them.

More spikes would have been better but the reference followed shows 4 until a fullsuit is made, we can see then.

Hard backing was not necessary as i was hopping the electronic pocket would be in the inside…this prevents stuff from flying out…more modifications later.
I prefer removable stuff as you can hide stuff in the inside, I design stuff to last or upgraded in the future.


Visual Satisfactionit swings and looks very nice at raves.


Feet

Wear SatisfactionThey look a bit small, with the horns not being so much 3D to then….


Visual SatisfactionJust look a bit rushed.


Special FeaturesLED installed in the horns, they do work. Costed a bit more just to put LED's on while i built my own control circuits. I will have to take the suit apart sometime to add the sensors.

Final CommentsMakers under estimate there time. I rather over estimate with live projects going on. Specially during lock-down when people where more at home, now things are opening up. I blearily have time to run around with my head chopped off.
