Head

Wear Satisfaction

The hood fits well, it’s baggy because it’s supposed to be a huge kigu hood.

The expression on it is PERFECT and shows off Riot’s grumpy attitude! The embroidery is also nicely done! The hood even has a nice green fabric lining the inside which i thought was a nice touch.

It’s also not too baggy it obscures vision as I work in a warehouse and I was allowed to wear it for the company halloween dress up day as we can only wear hoods that don’t obstruct peripheral vision.



Visual Satisfaction

The symmetry is PERFECT! Everything is symmetrical and his exression is the same as shown on the reference sheet! The expression is cool too, just like the concept art so it shows off his grumpy nature.

Body

Wear Satisfaction

The body of the kigu is very comfortable and soft, and very very warm. I love the oversized buttons and the fact my kigu has lined pockets. The markings and seams are very clean and match to the concept art and the lightning bolt is in the middle of his back!

The kigu fits baggy as it’s supposed to and it’s really easy to move around in. It’s like a giant warm blanket.



Visual Satisfaction

The symmetry is perfect and everything lines up! The markings match the concept art perfectly and the seams are all clean.

The colors were perfect and I was given the chance to see the fabric selection before anything was even started! That was pretty cool of them to do!

Special Attachments and Features

I got the added paw mittens with my kigu and I can say they do get a bit annoying after a while as they just flop there if they’re not on your hands. They get in the way if I’m doing anything so I generally have to roll the sleeves up or pin the paws back. They are seriously cute though, I only wish they came with the option to remove them if need be.

The mittens fit perfectly and are soft and lined on the inside. They’re also light and sit just on the edge of the wrist.

The kigu also has a little stuffed husky tail that dangles cutely from the bottom. It’s not too big that it gets in the way when I sit and doesn’t bother me at all when walking! Very cute!

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

The little paw mittens fit nicely, I only wish they were removable as stated before. I knew this when buying that they weren’t though! Just something I wished after wearing the kigu for a while.



Visual Satisfaction

Very cute! They fit with the reference sheet given to her at the time and the colors were all perfect!

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

Cute little tail attached to the back of the kigu! It’s got a husky curl and it’s not big enough to be a bother when i sit down!



Visual Satisfaction

Everything matched up well to the concept art and the seams are perfect! My son even pulled on it once and it held up perfectly fine!

I had a very plesant experience working with mangoisland! I was also very happy to hear that I was selected and my email was answered very quickly! They showed me WIPs of every step right down to the fabric choice and I was shown multiple mock ups to make sure that everything was perfect!

I would definitely recommend this maker! They are well worth the price and I love wearing a piece of custom art in this way!
