Head

How satisfied are you with the fit of the head?
Is it too tight or loose? Does anything poke you, stab you, make it uncomfortable to wear? Is it lined comfortably?
Very satisfied. The head is very comfortable and fits nicely, it’s also lined well.

How is the ventilation?
Can you breathe well? Is the mask stuffy? Does the air circulate through your head?
Ventilation is amazing! I can breath very well in suit and the head almost never gets hot.

How is the vision?
Can you see well in front of you? Is there a large blind spot? Do you have to turn your head to see? (Note: most suits do not have peripheral vision)
Vision is great! Virtually no center blindspot and wide peripherals.

How is the symmetry?
Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Are the markings symmetrical per character design?
Symmetry is great! Everythings very even.

Is the shaving even?
Can you see the backing? Is it choppy? Is the transition to long fur what you were looking for?
Shaving is fantastic! Extremely smooth all around with a good transition.

How satisfied are you with the expression and overall appearance of the head?
Very satisfied, very happy and cute expression.

 

Hands and Feet

How satisfied are you with the fit of the hands and feet?
Will your wrists/ankles show if you stretch too much? Do they stay on your hands or do they slide off? Can you put them on comfortably with ease?
Hands and feet fit well, ankle cuffs are a bit wide however.

How is the quality of the hands and feet? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Have seams popped? Have paw pads or claws fallen off?
Quality is great, the only issue I’ve had so far is a small bit of fur came unglued off of the bottom of the heel on one footpaw.

Tails

How is the quality of the tail? Are you satisfied with the materials used?
Is it too cumbersome? Can you pull on it without tearing? Are the straps secure and even?
If there is any padding or armature, does it look right and function correctly?

Quality is great, it’s been accidently pulled on accidentally several times and has held up incredilbly.

How accurate to the concept art is your tail?
Did they get all the markings? Are the colors accurate?
Very accurate, it doesn’t have any markings but the shape is very accurate to the reference.
