Relationship With Maker
The maker was NOT a friend when the item was purchased, but they ARE a friend now

Prior Experience
Yes, I have made them and owned other suits

Informed Maker of Issues
Yes – when I was shown the pictures of the finished product, I realized the wrong fur was used on the belly, The mistake was totally my fault, as I hadn’t paid close enough attention when swatches were shown. Kilcodo graciously replaced it at no cost and also airbrushed her freckles to match!

Wear Time
hundreds of hours (she’s 6 years old)

Head

Wear Satisfaction

Very lightweight and comfortable! The mouth opening lines up with where my nose and mouth are on my face perfectly, so the ventilation is awesome.



Visual Satisfaction

She looks great! Super happy and with those trademark Kilcodo eyebrows. After owning her for about 3 years, I sent her back to Kilcodo for a refurb, and got a more deery nose and ears.

Body

Wear Satisfaction

Comfortable, easy to wear! Front zipper makes her easy to put on by myself.



Visual Satisfaction

Looks great!

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

The original hands were made from vinyl, foam, and fur. The vinyl “hooves” got sweaty and smelly inside after a couple years (despite washing), and I commissioned Kilcodo for new hands made from fleece. Both pairs have been comfortable!

The feet were originally built on slippers with Dream Vision Creations hooves made from resin (they no longer make these anymore, now they’re made from foam). They were comfy, but after a few years I decided I wanted something more sturdy that provided more support. I sent them back and Kilcodo built my new feet on Crocs.

A couple years after that, one of my resin hooves cracked while bending over to pick something up. I contacted Kilcodo again and she re-made my feet on new Crocs with the new DVC foam hooves. I still have this set!

The above upgrades were all commissions, but at a discounted price and always with a fast turnaround!



Visual Satisfaction

They look and feet great!

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

Cute little nubby tail, attached to the suit. It’s great!



Visual Satisfaction

Looks good!

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Fit is excellent! I had an issue with the neck stretching out since it’s not edged with anything, but I was able to fix that myself.

Overall Project Quality
100% satisfied!



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
Very easy. I sent her an email from the form on her website and went from there

Maker Response Time
Always fast to reply to emails!

Maker Professionalism
Kilcodo was always extremely prompt, professional, and friendly.
