Character Concept Art

Photos of Completed Product

Head

Wear Satisfaction

– It can be a bit uncomfortable after a while, specially in my chin, but not to the point of becoming unwearable.
– Vision is ok, since gryphons have a huge beak there’s not much that can be done, however I can see through 4 points so that helps a lot.
– It includes an internal fan that helps A LOT to keep me from excesive sweating.



Visual Satisfaction

– This head is a remake from an older version, she offered a total remake because she felt she could get a better result and BOY she really did a great job on this remake
– Symmetry: is awesome, there’s only a small mark on the beak, as if someone touched the beak before if was completely dry, but it’s barely perceptible
– Shaving: It was as expected
– Fur feel and look. My character is full brown without any marks so it looks good
– Expression: My absolute favorite part, I completely love the expression.
– Does it match the concept art?: Yes.

Special Attachments and Features

– I can detach the ears and switch between 3 pair of eyes, that makes it able to become a ‘golden eagle head’, this was the initial plan and it works great.
– The ears are attached with strong magnets that very rarely fall down on their own.
– The bag for the powerbank can be used to keep my key and maybe some money
– the only feature it was missing is some kind of spring to make the beak close it self, so I could ‘bite’ with an audible bite sound.

Body

Wear Satisfaction

– The body fits good, it’s a good quality fur
– The interiors are standard, recommended to be used with sport gear



Visual Satisfaction

– I love the digitigrade look, I requested it with big legs and I got what I wanted.
– Body fits properly overall

Special Attachments and Features

– The wings and tail can be detached (as part of the golden eagle future version)
– All internal pillows for the digitigrade can be removed to be washed/transported

Hands and Feet

Wear Satisfaction

– Feet look just like they are supposed to.
– Hands could have been a little bit more detailed for a semi-realistic look



Visual Satisfaction

– The hands had a small issue where they are supposed to be used over the arms, but they are smaller than they should so I decided to use them just as gloves (wth out them covering any part of the arms)
– Feet had another issue, they were too short so any sudden moves would make my skin show up, this was corrected by the maker and the result was awesome.

Tails

Wear Satisfaction

I love the look/lenght of the tail, it can be attached to me with a belt.



Visual Satisfaction

It matches the ref, the tail is great!

Wings

Wear Satisfaction

They are comfortable to wear, yet difficult to attach.
They stay in place for a while, but after a really long while (and for a reason I still can’t figure) the wings start ‘dropping’, this can be fixed by re-attaching them.



Visual Satisfaction

Totally love it, I asked for small wings so it would be easier to walk around and I totally love how they look!
They even got some real feathers attached.

Overall


Product Satisfaction

How was your concept art realized?
I sent her a lot of pictures and concepts specially for the head and she made an incredible job, the eyes and the beak are just beyond amazing.

How well does everything fit together and match up?
Overall I’m totally satisfied with the final product!
I totally love how everything fits together, it’s kinda hard to put it on (specially because I requested some unusual things) so I don’t blame the maker for this.

Once the suit is on it’s really comfortable to walk with it!

Overall Project Quality
I’m happy with the final product,
Totally worth the money.
Even tho it had some minor details that were addressed while others details couldn’t be changed, I really my fursuit!
