Pre-Made Item Being Reviewed Disney the Golden Retriever Partial in a toony style bought as a pre-made. Character Concept Art Photos of Completed Product Head Wear Satisfaction It is a very comfortable head to wear and is completely lined. The vision is fantastic, I am not able to see down or to my side unless I turn my head but in my line of sight everything is very visible. The ventilation is also great. It does get a tad stuffy in hot weather, but I don’t really blame that on the suit as I live in an area where summers are 100+ degrees almost daily. Visual Satisfaction The suit is insanely cute! The fur is very soft and it has floppy ears. If you look at the head straight on, the symmetry is very slightly lopsided, but it really is not bad at all and does not effect how adorable the suit is. Unless you are really looking its not even that noticeable. The shaving is for the most part very even, there are a few spots that are a tad choppy, but nothing major. This is something that was stated in their listing as well, so I knew the fur wasn’t 100% even everywhere before I purchased it. Even with that being said, I feel like everything is really well done. The transitions from the short hair to long hair look really natural and nice. The head has a content/happy expression which is really well done. It also included some magnetic eyelids which really help to be able to create more expressions and emotions! With that being said, altogether it is just a very pleasing to look at suit. It matches the concept ref perfectly and has a beautiful color palette as well. Special Attachments and Features The head includes a pair of magnetic eyelids which can help create a sad or almost sleepy expression. The magnets are very strong and when they are on the suit they are sturdy enough to stay on even if you are making a lot of crazy movements. They are also super easy to just plop on and off as you please. Very convenient and with how easy it is to do I’ve found that I can even do it while wearing the paws. Hands and Feet Wear Satisfaction The paws are puffy paws which were intended to be one size fits most. They are a tad big on me I feel, but not enough to where they ever slip off. Either way they are very comfortable to wear and it is super easy to maneuver each finger individually & hold things with the paws. They are not lined, which personally does not bother me or effect the comfort of the paws. Visual Satisfaction The appearance of the paws is amazing. They are big and squishy and the shaving of the fur is all very even. They are very soft and the material the paw pads are made of almost make them look like real pawpads! I believe it might be something similar to a vinyl, but I am not 100% sure what material they are made of. The paws have claws which appear to be made of a minky material and they are absolutely stunning! It is a really cool feature to have added on the paws. These match the ref sheet perfectly. Tails Wear Satisfaction The tail is comfortable to wear. It is very waggable and not too heavy so it doesn’t really feel like you are carrying a lot of weight. The quality is perfect, no popping seams, the straps to attach it to a belt are very secure. Visual Satisfaction The appearance of the tail is really cool. It has a mixture of short fur and long fur and it transitions really well. The end of the tails where the straps are is all made of blue material, which is a pretty cool feature considering the character has a few blue accents in the design. It makes everything flow really nicely together. Overall Product Satisfaction How was your concept art realized? The reference was actually a premade design by the maker of the fursuit. So considering they designed the character specifically to be made into a fursuit, everything looks great in comparison to the concept art. How well does everything fit together and match up? Wearing the costume altogether everything flows really nicely. Size proportions are all perfect and the fur colors are all consistent. Quality is consistent in all of the pieces of the partial as well. The suit is definitely consistent with the normal style of the maker as well. Its almost as if they bring their art style to life in their fursuits. Overall Project Quality I can easily say I am happy with the product I received. It is my first fursuit, but I would consider it to be a quality costume. The price was well worth it for how well done the suit is. I would even venture to say that I underpaid as quality wise after actually getting it and seeing it in person I feel that is is worth more than what I paid. Purchase Process Initial Contact I purchased the partial on the Dealers Den, so initial contact was pretty easy as I just purchased the listing through the site. Maker Response Time Their response time was great. The first email I received from them was shortly after I purchased the listing on the dealers den, and any responses afterwards were usually less than a day – a day. Maker Professionalism They were very professional and kind. They were more than willing to discuss any questions I had and were very patient throughout the whole process. They were overall very pleasant. Project Completion Time It was bought as a premade, so it was completed already at the time of purchase. Rating FursuitReview rates by asking the question: Would you recommend this maker? YES This review has been marked with a positive rating. This means the reviewer would recommend Fursuits by Mars. Final Comments Overall, I just wanted to say the entire experience of purchasing this suit was very positive. The maker was professional, the shipping was fast, and the suit was great quality. I can’t really think of anything negative to say in regards to my experience as I got pretty lucky I feel in purchasing my first suit. I would work with this maker again, and actually am planning on turning this partial into a fullsuit. Are you the maker of this item? Would you like to leave an official response? Click here.
