Head

Wear Satisfaction

The suit head has a fully lined interior with incredible vision and ventilation! Hardly a blind spot at all, which is incredible! The head is super lightweight as well! There’s an opening for the mouth that leads out, so that heat can escape when you exhale and not trap warmth. Fits just right! has a bit of space left so someone with a larger head could fit as well but it still fits me super comfortably. Not sure the material used in the lining but its super comfy and I can wear it for over 5+ hours with no issue. haven’t tried longer but def could have. Nothing itchy or irritating, very soft and comfortable throughout the interior. Suit is waterproof if washing is needed, have had no issues with that, its super easy!

Horns are super lightweight as they’re made from foam and not anything heavy. The horns are also removeable which allow for easy transportation.



Visual Satisfaction

Appearance of the suit is incredible! Symmetry is perfect in every way. nothing lopsided, shaving is incredibly smooth and you can tell how much time was put into the small details. Don’t see any spots shaved too short or not enough (no backing shows through). fur is super soft. The teeth absolutely blew me away with their size/shape and just how small they are for being made of a fabric! How cool!. Expression is static, mouth is static, but allows for adjustment of expressions with eyelids. Suit didn’t come with eyelids, I added them later on. This suit was an artistic freedom suit, so I didn’t have any particular expectations other than “dragon” beforehand. Though we did agree on a design before they started and it definitely came out looking like the concept art.

Special Attachments and Features

Horns are attatched by magnets. This makes them removeable for easy transportation. The horns themselves are made from foam so they’re super lightweight and the bases of them are lined so when they’re removed you have a nice clean lining to look at. The magnets are strong and hold incredibly well! Highly recommend. I can take them on and off while wearing the suit if I wanted. They stay on strongly even if I shake my head vigorously.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
everything fits correctly and lines up well. marking sizes are consistent, edges of fur are tucked nicely. The suit looks exactly how I had hoped after seeing their previous work and was inspired by it. Definitely consistent with their style. colors are consistent and vibrant. color and fur choices were perfect and suited the character well!

Overall Project Quality
Super comfortable, incredible professionalism, incredibly high quality work. Definitely recommend them to anyone, they completely blew me away with every aspect of this suit. Well worth the cost!!! 1000%
I’ve had it for over a year with many hours of use and it still looks brand new! It’s been through a few washes and seams are still strong and eyes and fur colors still vibrant! Seems like the suit will last quite a long time.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Waited until they were open and contacted them via twitter I believe! Read through their website for details and then filled out a form to apply for a slot. they replied quickly and were super helpful.

Maker Response Time
super quick replies before commissioning, during the commission and still quick even after I received the suit. Communicated through telegram

Maker Professionalism
definitely feel They treated me well, they were super pleasant. I felt their passion for suit-making in every message, from day one they acted like a friend! Tiny Wyvern sent wip photos ever since they started the very first stages, very appreciate them keeping me up to date and making the whole process clear. They asked me many times if I had preferences and gave me chances to speak up if I had anything I wanted to add or change during every step. They gladly explained steps if I asked for elaboration. Kept communication professional. They were honest, truthful, reliable, and concise.

Project Completion Time
Extremely satisfied with completion time. I commissioned it early february, 2020, and wasn’t really expecting it until late in the year. The suit was completed earlier than expected, and was done by April 20th, 2020 to my surprise!. I wasn’t in a hurry for the suit to be completed. They didn’t specifically give me an ETA as the commissions were (roughly summer-fall 2020 completion) and I was one of the first commissioners in this batch to pay in full (I believe). They have a trello with all their commissions so I kept an eye on my spot in the queue. The suit was shipped super quick following completion too! Arrived quickly and safely with a super adorable badge for the character. Tracking was provided.

Final Comments
I haven’t had any issues with anything but Tiny Wyvern assured me they’d help if anything came up. We’ve discussed eyelids and they helped design the character. They’re super creative and their passion for suit making shows in every suit they make! Tiny Wyvern is one truly incredible fursuit maker! I didn’t know who they were before I commissioned, but now I’m happy to call them a friend as well as my fursuit maker! I feel comfortable contacting them if any issues with the suit come up. I’m extremely satisfied with my commission from Tiny Wyvern and hope to see many others experience the same experience and joy through their incredible work!
Their communication is incredible, completion time is super quick compared to other makers, price is great for the super professional product you receive. I’d highly recommend them to any of my friends. I commissioned for an artistic freedom dragon and received an incredibly gorgeous work of art that is durable, vibrant, breathable, comfortable, has great vision and some of the coolest features and details I’ve seen in a suit. You can tell they spent quite a bit of time perfecting details on the face that make that expression really pop! Symmetry and consistency as well as seam strength and cleanliness are on-point as well. It’s super easy to clean and super easy to put on and to wear for extended periods of time.
Their style is consistent and the commission was well worth every cent paid and every minute waited.
