Photos of Completed Product Head Wear Satisfaction One of the heaviest heads I’ve worn, but it does not put any strain on the neck as the inside is quite roomy. Roominess took some getting used to but it is easily fixed with additional padding behind the head. A good size for suit swapping as a range of heads can fit. The head is lined with fleece type of fabric. Mouth isn’t open very much so it does get warm very fast unless the mouth is propped open via hands or with a tool between upper and lower jaw. Ventilation improved after I made the snout hollow and placed a fan inside of the snout to get air circulating. Very easy fix! Vision out the eyes is good, but is limited to one eye or the other due to the eye placement and snout blind-spot. Ears are quite large which means I bump into everything and everyone. Takes some getting used to! Visual Satisfaction The head is incredibly well constructed and beautiful. I purchased this as a pre-owned personal suit and it is still wonderfully crafted. The symmetry is perfect. The shaving is some of the smoothest I’ve ever seen in person. I adore the blend of different furs for the shorter and longer furs! I can’t see any visible seams anywhere on the face. Body Wear Satisfaction Body was tailored well and made wonderfully. Seams appeared to be machine sewn and double stitch sewn with straight stitch and zig-zag stitching. Super secure seams! I haven’t had any on the bodysuit itself pop yet. Airflow is good and the body doesn’t get hot. It’s the coolest part of the suit. Zipper is located on the back of the suit which does make getting in and out of the suit by myself a bit of a challenge unless I attach a lanyard to the zipper so I can pull it. Zipper itself is sewn on very well and easily hidden with fur. Visual Satisfaction The body looks great! The furs used are luxury shag and they hold up and look well even after long suiting sessions. Body is easy to brush and maintain. Back zipper is well hidden. Hands and Feet Wear Satisfaction The hand paws were easy to put on and wear. They were unlined, which was preferable because this made them easier to wear, put on, and take off. Movement was easy and dexterity was not an issue as they were unpadded / nonpoofy handpaws. The feetpaws are well built and sturdy! Due to the oversized nature of them, they are heavy but I ADORE this feature because it gives them a nice stomp when I walk. Also due to the size, I have to wear shoes inside of them so they fit me securely but because of this they’re extremely comfortable to wear and they stay on without any worry of slipping off. They’re easy to put on and take off! Bottoms are covered with a sturdy soling that has no show of wear and is super durable. Feetpaws are lined with fleece around the ankles and another material on the inner bottoms and hoof area. Handpaws were easily washed in the washing machine. Feetpaws are washed by hand. Visual Satisfaction Symmetry is perfect. Shaving and detailing is well done and professional. Feetpaws are unique in design and look! They’re real show stoppers and always get comments of praise! Tails Wear Satisfaction Easiest tail I’ve ever used! It’s directly attached to the body suit so I don’t have to worry about dealing with belts and attaching it. Visual Satisfaction The tail is well constructed and light. Basic tail stuffed with polyfill. Moves when I do and has a great wag look. Only issue I had was the tail was attached with a whip stitch and did pop off when I bent over to pick something up. But as this was previously a personal suit, I understand it may have been looked over. Fixing it was as easy as sewing it right back on. Overall Product Satisfaction How well does everything fit together and match up? Symmetry is absolutely perfect. Everything matches up and lines up. Sewn areas are professionally machine tailored and sturdy. Legs fit well over the feetpaws and create a seamless look. Overall Project Quality This suit is wonderful and well constructed. I see it lasting me many, many years. Kraken does beautiful work that is comparable to some of the fandom’s finest fursuit makers. I’m honored to own this suit.
