Prior ExperienceNo, this is my first fursuit

Wear Time100

Informed Maker of IssuesYes, the tail hole and some of the hand-sewn patterns had broken. Also, the arm sleeves weren't long enough and the hand openings were too wide. My maker fixed all of these issues, except the tail hole may be a little too large, which I plan to tell them when it is convenient, perhaps at a meet of convention.

Overall

Initial ContactVery easy. I don't think it could have been easier if I lived with them lol.


Maker CommunicationVery satisfied. They went above and beyond to the point where I felt bad for not communicating as well as they did.

Project Completion TimeIt happened before winter, which was a huge plus for being a snow leopard and all. Satisfied!


Overall Project QualityNo, I'm not just happy. I am utterly inspired to create happiness through Carson. Just yesterday I met someone walking on Grandview overlook of Pittsburgh. Great view by the way. She was having a crappy day, but she said that seeing me and some other fursuiters being silly made her day a little less crappy.

That's why I'm satisfied. Thank you Space Mew. I'm crying with joy ;;



Components


Head

Wear SatisfactionLiterally headspace.

Very comfortable, don't even notice it's on when I'm in the ZONE. Especially when that "ZONE" is sleep zzz. Can play trumpet, but not as well as with it off (obviously). I can see better than other fursuiters and plot out a course to run/march/parkour through His eyes. I can also turn my head on backwards and freak people out ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Sometimes I have to push Carson's hair back because it flops forward covering my eyes, just like my human hair, how realistic.


Visual SatisfactionPurrfect.

Carson looks just pretty much exactly the way I feel. His easy-going, sorta mouth-breathing, kinda "was' goin on?" expression is the perfect mask for his sun-shining lunatical energy. Carson belongs in every situation, and if you'd like to change my mind give him a time and place and he'll be there.

The only negative thing visually is when Carson's hair flips forward, you can see the pillow underneath and it's kinda out of place, but at least it motivates me to keep my hair looking good =;-)



One-Piece Body

Wear SatisfactionHawt.

THE BURNING SOUL OF A THOUSAND SUNS. It's a little hot in the leg area to dance around in, but that's to be expected. It feels so good to put him on, like YES I CAN FEEL THE POWER COURSING THROUGH MY BODY. You know it's time to be a excite the townsfolk when the silly leopard suit comes on and securely envelopes your body. Just be careful not to let them see what's on underneath through the overly wide tail hole. H̶a̶w̶t̶i̶l̶y̶ Highly recommend.


Visual SatisfactionTHICC.

Boi got them thighs. A full-figure befits such a wholesome character as Carson ( •̀ᴗ•́ )و ̑̑

The darker rosettes are hard to notice amidst the already dark grey of His non-belly areas. Just like roses I planted are hard to notice amidst the looming radio silence….moving on.

Belly fluff is pure white floof bordered by butterscotch cream. You feel invited to fluffle, He won't scratch. He. Won't. I swear (but don't curse ; )

Just the tail hole is what I want to get made smaller. That is all.

Beeeeeeeeautiful!



Hands

Wear SatisfactionFinger escapes.

If you play an instrument, or just wanna use your phone without taking off your paws, this design is amazing. You can't even notice there are escapes, they are just their with all their usefulness hiding in plain site!

Sometimes tricky to tuck under the arm sleeves, but pretty secure once they're in there.

Pawesome!


Visual SatisfactionLovely brown beans to n̶o̶m̶ look at. Beₐₙhold ー(☆∀☆)/”

The floof gets a little tuff-ed up under the arm sleeves. It's not visible unless Carson is worn as a partial.

I love em' great toony paw look. And no claws, so you have no excuse to not rub His soft flufferly belly, riiight?

High fiv–… uh, I mean… High 4 *fwap*



Tail

Wear SatisfactionSPIN ATTACK

Watch out. If you are a cup on a counter, a pile of papers on a desk, or a priceless statue way up high on the living room mantle, Carson's tail is YOUR natural predator. Going around with a big ol' bushy tail is wonderful… until it gets dragged across the mud outside because the idiot inside the suit wanted to crouch. Feels secure with the help of a tight belt. Just have to be careful not to let it sway too much to reveal hooman clothing through that wide af tail hole.

It's super effective!


Visual SatisfactionLovely!

Just lovely! This tail displays favorite rosettes as they swish around following Carson's spazmatic movements. I love how, just like the body, the tail has a white part and a grey part.

YAAAAAY I don't have to type anymore. I mean, I would like you to know more about Carson, but why write when I can show you?

;3



Feet

Wear SatisfactionBoots!

The polyfill moves around quite a bit. Before putting them on I have to kinda feel out a space for my feet. Once they are on they are good to go. Fursuit sandals help a lot with keeping everything good and in-form. I got the white on the bottom a little dirty before I started using sandals ;-; and I'm hoping to get them looking new again. Get sandals if you have white sockpaws, PLEASE. They could be a little taller and cover my ankles a little higher because sometimes it feels like they aren't completely on, but once I start suiting I don't notice.

Great way to keep your feet warm in winter!

*STAMPs on the ground*


Visual SatisfactionMoar beans!

The toe beans are so nice, maybe even nicer than the handpaw beans. I've gotten people asking if they can get just the "kitty boots" because they look so adorable. It's hard to keep the fur in the right direction, but my feet are restless so duh. Also have to move the polyfill in the toes around to get them to look right.

Also no claws. Also why haven't you rubbed The Belly™?
