Wear Satisfaction

The kigu is amazingly comfortable, and the hood is bigger than any of the ones i’ve purchased in the past, which allows for ease of wear. The hood is also lined

All the seams inside the kigu are serged, and the buttonholes are finished. Buttons are secured nicely, and I was sent an extra just in case

The kigu does contain pockets, also they are a bit lower than I am used to, more on my legs than hips. Not a problem at all, just takes a little getting used to

Overall, I expect this thing to last quite a while


Visual Satisfaction

I am so pleased with how he came out. The face on the hood is absolutely adorable, and the details put into the design, his ears, and the overall construction of the body are amazing.

The literal only ‘complaint’ I have is that the hair tuft is not sewn down completely on the head and has a tendency to flop backwards with a lot of movement. It’s not anything hugely debilitating, just means i need to keep an eye on it er maybe throw a stitch down to keep it in place

But they captured my character to a T
