Head

Wear Satisfaction

The hood fits really well. Very comfortable!


Visual Satisfaction

I am very happy with how the hood looks. Originally she did a different design for the face but I didn’t like it, so I had her change the eyes to be happier, and to remove the snout dots. She did this edit for me without any problems and I am so happy she did!

Special Attachments and Features

The ears on the hood flop really cutely!
Body

Wear Satisfaction

The body of the kigurumi fits me well, and it’s super roomy and loose. But this is my personal preference and it allows for better movement! The sleeves and legs have elastic cuffs on the end, and I LOVE the fact my kigu has pockets! Which makes kiguing at cons a lot easier since I can put my card key, wallet, and phone in my kigu. The kigu does heat up after a while of wear but that’s to be expected. The face is embroidered, and the wings and tail are sewn to the body.



Visual Satisfaction

I love my kigurumi! Everything is spot on and correct, everything is symetrical! It’s super soft, made out of anti-pill fleece, and looks great, I really love the hood more than anything.

Special Attachments and Features

My kigurumi has a tail attached and wings. I like the wings, but they are too big and floppy for my personal tastes, I would have preferred smaller, chibi wings, but that is my fault for not telling her I wanted chibi wings.

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

The tail is sewn to the body and stuffed. It waggles when I walk in my kigu! It’s firmly sewn on.



Visual Satisfaction

Everything is perfect!

Special Attachments and Features

Very satisfied with the tail!

Wings

Wear Satisfaction

As I mentioned before, I’m not completely happy with the wings since they’re big and floppy, and sag a lot, and I would have preferred small chibi wings, but again, that is my fault for not telling her.



Visual Satisfaction

Other than the wings being too big for my personal tastes, I really love the way they look! She went all out on the detailing.

Special Attachments and Features

Very satisified with the quality.

I am absolutely happy with my commission and I would definitely commission her again in the future. She does take a while to respond during the commission process, and she can be hard to get ahold of but the wait is worth it, you will definitely get a high quality product. 🙂
