Overall

Initial ContactVery. They responded almost immediately.


Maker CommunicationCommunication was entirely through Etsy and I always got a quick, courteous response within a few hours. Faris was very patient and helpful when I had issues with my PayPal and held the listing for me until I got my next paycheck to pay with my bank, instead.

Project Completion TimeN/A The head was shipped promptly. Delivery did take longer than expected, but that was the fault of the carrier.


Overall Project QualityVery happy and I'm honestly not sure where all the hate comes from on other reviews. 🙁 Granted, I did not have to deal with ETA and deadlines since this was not a commission, but my communication with Faris always got polite and prompt response within a few hours before and after I paid.

I am very satisfied with the head quality and it exceeded expectations. It is light, yet very durable and has held up well. I have worn it for several photo shoots both indoors and out, a Halloween party and also to multiple rock/metal concerts with no issues and it still looks as good and the jaw hinge as tight as when I first bought it. I get a lot of compliments on this head/character.



Components


Head

Wear SatisfactionExcellent! I have over a dozen resin/plastic moving jaw heads and this one is by far the most comfortable, especially for extended periods. Visibility is great; better than average for a non-foam base. I can walk around freely in crowded places without a handler at night or in daylight, as well as with or without overhead lights indoors with no problem. Ventilation is good and it is not heavy at all. It is also well-balanced and not muzzle-heavy the way some non-foam bases are. Jaw is very responsive and I did not need to add any extra padding anywhere.


Visual SatisfactionGreat! The look is actually what attracted me to this head in the first place. Even though this one was a premade/ from what I understand, not as much time put into it as a full blown commission from FB, it stands out with a life of its own and does not look like a generic black and white wolf. The eyes and facial markings have a lot of intelligence and personality. Everything is very clean and the fur feels high quality. No shedding.

  1. Hey I’m pretty curious when did you end up getting this suit? I’ve been waiting since the 6th of feburary this year to recieve my custom plantigrade mountain lion fursuit from her that I paid for bia etsy
    It seems like she dropped off the face of the earth and looks like she has also deleted her etsy. Her communication was great and then she just dropped off. Have no idea if she is still working on my suit at all or not. But if you know where I can contact her I would greatly appreciate it because she said she had my head and hand paws made.

    • Greetings, so there is no confusion I want to point out this review was made for a pre-made item purchased and received in 2019.

    • She owes dozens of people. She has disappeared completely from all known platforms. I help run beware groups against her.

    • I got it in 2019, but it was a new premade, so it was ready to ship immediately and she did ship it right away. I have no idea how to contact since my entire communication was through Etsy, but in my case I did get what I paid for and it was better than expected.

  2. I’m honestly surprised to see a review of hers in 2021 and it being positive. She’s like fully gone and owes so many people money.. She even has delays on how she ships pre-mades..
