Head

Wear Satisfaction

Ive owned 3 previous firsuit heads in the past and this one is by far my favorite. Its form fitting, beautifully handled on specifications and for a resin base has an amazing level of comfort



Visual Satisfaction

Details down to a perfection. Civilized Lava was willing to go an extra mile to make sure the markings were set into the skull and to make sure I had room to put on extra accessories (goggles)

Special Attachments and Features

The movable jaw was placed perfectly with my own dimensions so it didnt feel too tight but perfect so it moved when I wanted it to.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Best fursuit head Ive had. Not just in appearance but in quality and comfort as well

Overall Project Quality
9/10. Perfectly handled and one of the best products Ive received so far within the Furry Fandom



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Maker and I are good friends so meeting a fair quote was hardly a hassle.

Maker Response Time
Maker was always ready to provide an update and made sure to communicate.

Maker Professionalism
Civilized Lava treated me with patience and was always ready to adapt to any of my needs.

Project Completion Time
Hardly had to wait for the maker to finish their work but of course I absolutely respected if they needed extra time to add details, wait on materials, or to find their own time to work.

Final Comments
Civilized Lava is one of the best makers Ive had the pleasure of working with. Being a good friend was a bonus sure but her work on Cautious Imber was phenomenal. From the extra work put into the details (cracks into the resin base, extra painting, phenomenal work on the eyes.) To her willingness to keep up with communication and fair pricing/handling.
