Because of this, the questions and format differ from other reviews on this site. Head How satisfied are you with how well the head fits? Is anything uncomfortable? Is it too loose or too tight? Is it lined in a comfortable material? (1-5): It is a resin head with articulated jaw. The hinges are more ‘into’ the mask than everything else is (if that makes sense) so sometimes they dig into your cheeks when putting the mask on. If your face is ‘fat’ the hinges may press on your cheeks during wear, but otherwise this head fits great on a 23″ head. The auction was described as 22-23″ fitting, so this was fairly accurate. 4.5. How satisfied are you with the vision? Can you see well in front of you? Is there a large blind spot? Do you have to turn your head to see? (1-5): Vision is fairly standard, for this type of head. But I have seen/worn better. There is no peripheral vision whatsoever, and once it gets dark is is extremely difficult to see. 4. How satisfied are you with the ventilation? Is the airflow good? Can you wear it for a reasonable amount of time without having to take it off? (1-5) The ventilation is pretty standard, but I have worn better. 4. How satisfied are you with the symmetry of the head? Are the eyes or ears lopsided? Is the shaving clean and even?(1-5): The shaving on the muzzle is slightly off, but this seems to be the norm. Perfectly symmetrical head, and well put together. The nose seems kind of ‘off’ but I’m not sure why, exactly (I don’t think it’s placement). 4.5. How satisfied are you with the expression of the head? (1-5): The head is extremely realistic and to most people it can be scary or awesome. However, as I bought more suits I realized I dislike this head because the eyes have that ‘dead’ look. Also, this mouth has an articulated jaw which is very responsive and amazing, but the mouth has no taxidermy tongue and only two hanging ‘fangs’. This looks kind of derpy to me. The fur on the head is unruly and truly that of a wild wolf (as was its intention). But as time goes on, I don’t know, I just dislike it. Maybe it’s just me. 4. Hands and Feet How satisfied are you with the fit of the hands and feet? Will your wrists/ankles show is you stretch too much? Do they stay on your hands or do they slide off? (1-5): There are no feet. Paws are 3/4. The paws are kind of big on me and there seems to be no or little elastic in the arms. I Normally wear rubber bands with the arms to keep them above my elbows. Since this suit was won at auction, i did not go by my personal body measurements. For this reason, I will not numerically rate this question. -How satisfied are you with the quality of the hands and feet? (1-5): There are no feet. Paws are 3/4. The fur is great, the nails are amazingly realistic, so are the paw pads. I go out into town with my suits and for all intents and purposes probably put them through hell. After about 6 months of this, the most problem I had was a paw pad beginning to come off. I glued it back on and have never had a problem with anything else. For a little insight– the paw pad started to peel from the hand when we were climbing rope. 5. (If I could rate higher than a 5, I would) Overall Product Satisfaction How satisfied are you with the overall quality? Are all the seams durable? Has anything fallen apart?(1-5): Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this suit. My tastes have changed so I dislike some of the visual aspects of the suit, however the construction of the suit is undeniably amazing. As I stated before, this suit has been through hell and back already and it has stayed together through everything. It also packs really well! xD 5. How satisfied are you with how well everything fits together and matches up? (1-5): Extremely satisfied. The suit has a weird coloration (in my opinion) but everything matches and looks natural. 5. How satisfied are you with how the deadline was met for completion of your project? Were any deadlines missed or was it done early? (1-5): N/A, this was pre-made and won at auction. How satisfied are you with the overall quality of your project? (1-5): Aside from the hinge ‘problem’ with the head, extremely satisfied. 4.5. How satisfied are you with the overall customer service with the maker? (1-5): Aside from the miscommunication error, extremely satisfied. She even gave me a discount should I choose to buy from her again in the future. 5. Purchase Process How satisfied are you with how easy it was to initially contact the maker? Did they take an unreasonable long time to respond?(1-5): Maker was extremely easy to contact and deal with. 5. How satisfied are you with the response time from the maker? (1-5): There was some miscommunication when I asked for a favor on furbuy and I think she got herself in trouble? Because of me? Dx But aside from that, she was great. 5. How satisfied are you with the level of professionalism and friendliness of the maker? Were they pleasant to work with? (1-5): They were very pleasant to work with. They did not seem “professional” in that this was a business, but she was personable and that did not disrupt the quality of communication at all. 5. Rating FursuitReview rates by asking the question: Would you recommend this maker? YES This review has been marked with a positive rating. This means the reviewer would recommend RastafarianLion. Final Comments If the maker can do a little tweaking with the hinges in her heads, and possibly choose different eyes and/or artistic expression for the heads, I would expect her to become very in-demand quickly. As it is, I can’t wait to see her improve with any other suits, should she decide to make them. For what the suit cost, it is amazing quality (in my opinion). Are you the maker of this item?
