Head

Wear Satisfaction

Ease of Wear: slips on and off so easy! does not mess with my glasses what so ever like other heads! (though ive made them all to my size) with the head being very open cleaning has been a breeze! no issues with sweat either.

Comfort: Very comfortable! Very light! Lined on the inside with a snice smooth fabric (assuming lycra or similar)

Ventilation/Vision: Vision and ventilation are excellent. Definitely one of the best parts of the whole head! I was VERY surprised on the vision I have never seen SO MUCH in a head before. due to me wearing glasses in my suit, I do find my glasses will fog up while in suit if it is cold out.



Visual Satisfaction

Very expressive, symmetrical, all match exactly to the ref sheet given even the plugs for the ears. the eyebrows are very fun to play around with! there can be multiple expressions given none looking out of place or weird. teeth dont feel very secured in to place. (could be i fear i will pull them right off!) the definition in the resin teeth is very nice. the shave job on the head is wonderful with how much of the pile was left! staying nice and flat for long periods of time. most fur I work with, if it is not cut very short, it looks messy. if the fur is brushed up on some locations though, (markings specifically) you can see the long spots from shaving. fur is soft and shiny, all markings have been hand sewn on to the head. the fleece around the resin follow me (3d) eyes really is a nice touch. there is no visible hot glue anywhere either! head is fully lined, soft material not itchy at all. the inside appearance is very professional and open to the eye. plugs for the ears fit very snug, as they wont fall out. the are completely sewn, look very nicely done on and off the head. everything seems all sew together, no seam on the head seems to be glued down. even the ear fluff within the ear. the inner ear and nose material has seam lines that work with the style. the over all look of the head is perfect in style to the characters ref and expressions. I had search for years for a style that fit my character i had found and Koshka Fursuits achieved that for me with this head commission. No changes needed to be done with my head even with the very small freckle , circular, markings on the face. there is in total 10 small hand sewn circles on the face.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Everything flowed well with each other all fur was going in the same direction.no fur looked like patch work with different brands or quality of black fur. the fur also matched up very well with the rest of my suit I had a mix of putting together and making myself. markings hold their shape as they are all sewn on. you can clearly see what they are and placed perfectly where they should be. the head is very consistent with the over all style the maker has. I was very pleased.

Overall Project Quality
I have been very satisfied with what I have gotten with what I paid for. My triangle of buying anything or getting a service done, are quickness, quality, and cost, it is by far a 8.5/10. there has been found to have small flaws that was easy to fix on my own. i feel i will have this head for a long time, it seems durably easy to take care of. all pieces (eye brows and plugs) seem to be well made, sit well and sometimes look like they were sewn on or down to the head.



Purchase Process

Initial Contact
very easy to contact, Maker has multiple social media accounts as well as a website. i found the slot opening from Facebook and twitter. They made sure to keep everyone updated through, all forms of media as well as a telegram and trello for clients to follow along in there WIP processes. when commission through email, as posts stated. there were detailed pictures provided so I knew where and how to measure.

Maker Response Time
it took the maker about 24-48 hours to get back to me about a quote and slot for the commission when it opened up. we switched contact after the head was started to telegram as they were more active on there. giving me even quicker response times.

Maker Professionalism
the maker was very polite, over all contact and communication was phenomenal. i did not need to contact the maker for update as they were personally given to me and they asked questions through out. they very much made me feel like a long time friend, a very pleasant, friendly, and professional contact. I even got to follow the progress through telegram and trello. very easy to follow and detailed explanation was laid out for me. if any excuses was coming up it was due to shipping restrictions and the pandemic.

Project Completion Time
the head was quoted in Jan., I grabbed a slot in March, then the head was started in May. it was finished very quickly. i was amazed with the timing even with a full queue they were working with. about 5 others. Following where I placed in the slots was very easy with the trello being accessible to me. no deadline was discussed. any date that was given (WIP completions) was met early, as well as arrival date when it was shipped. once the papers where filled out on their end, and the restrictions allowed it it was shipped out right away. we even talked about other ways of shipment due to the restrictions.(pandemic, going from south America to US)

Unboxing Video

things I have found/fixed since owning this head: I have sewn down the teeth, in fear of them ripping off. The tongue started to peel up as it was glued down, i have since sewn that down as well. MORE PICTURES

Features: magnetic eyelids/eyebrows, follow me eyes, static mouth, foam base, can fit glasses! fully sewn stuffed plugs for stretched ears.

Pros: Ventilation//Vision is amazing, very expressive, overall comfortable, customer service is top-notch. i LOVE this head. the nose on the head is squishy, most noses i have seen dont glue AROUND they do on top, making it not so squishy. they eyes are very clear in vision, THEY ARE NOT SEE THROUGH WHEN YOU USE THE CAMERA FLASH ❤️

Cons: teeth seem wiggly, inner ear and nose material feels thin, the ear fluff seems to be made with a lesser quality fur. some places could have been shaved shorter (creases and high spots on the freckles and diamond) holes where the ears connect to the head, it was glued down not sewn around as well as glued. the tongue seems glued down as well and not sewn, that after a day now has pulled up the mouth is a small yet nice size for standard size water bottle. the mouth does not seem to get wider to put in anything else but that size. i am use to getting cups in the head, if no bottle or straw can be found.

I am ecstatic with my over all head, even with the cons of this head, it is expected with cost and location of where it is being made.
