It’s nicely lined. It fits incredibly with a nice adjustable ball cap attached to the base. It’s such great fit my moving jaw is fully articulated. It also has a nice zipper in the back though I can slip it on and off without unzipping it so I usually use it more as a access point for maintenance and the fans. Ventilation is even more amazing. I have a constant airflow even when the mouth is closed. It keeps me cool and has allowed me to be able to suit actively up to 3hours straight in warm weather where I could barely do more than 30 minutes with a resin head I made. It also has two fans in it though I don’t have to turn them on unless I’m being really active. As a additional feature I can also prop the mouth open with Takeshi’s fangs if I need additional airflow. Vision is great from what I can tell. My visual field is naturally a bit restricted without the mask though I’d say it’s awesome for tear duct vision. I can see better out of the tear ducts than on other tear duct vision masks I’ve worn. I can also see out of the mouth if I need a better view of my surroundings. Straight on the vision’s fantastic and the blindspot’s relatively minimal. Visual Satisfaction I’m absolutely satisfied with how it looks. The symmetry is on point as are the markings and other feature. The shave is great. It has a nice even transition from the short to long fur, no bald spots. The furs she chose are nice and soft and just beautiful. All the markings are sewn in. I absolutely adore the expression and overall look of the mask. It’s incredibly expressive! With follow me eyes and moving jaw I can portray a large amount of expressions depending on how I tilt my head. I love it! It matches the concept art perfectly. Way beyond what I could have expected. She was even able to find the blue fur that matched the markings completely. I couldn’t be happier. Special Attachments and Features My head has a jawset and silicone tongue, warthog/oni esqu fangs and horns. As well as two fans inside the head. I love the look of the jawset its very realistic and the fangs are amazing. The fangs and horns being made out of vinyl they’re incredibly durable and light weight. They aren’t going anywhere and there is no risk of them hurting anyone. It’s all just high quality. The only thing I had problems with is the muzzle fan fell out in shipping though that was a simple fix I did myself. Overall Product Satisfaction How was your concept art realized? How satisfied are you with how closely the suit matches the concept art? Incredibly satisfied. It matches concept art perfectly. Though looks way cuter. How well does everything fit together and match up? How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up? Pretty satisfied.
