These are the padding & style categories on FursuitReview and what each contains.
Padding is extra material put inside a costume to make it look a certain way.
Digitigrade padding, often shortened to "digi," refers to costumes with legs and/or feet that have been padded
to give the appearance that the wearer is walking on their toes, similar to how many animals' legs are
Plantigrade, or "planti" is a lack of padding in the legs/feet of a costume. Since humans are plantigrade (walk
on the flats of our feet), there is usually no need to add anything to create the illusion of plantigrade
Muscle padding is a specific stylistic choice made in order to bulk out a costume, giving the wearer the
appearance of large muscles. FursuitReview uses this category for the more common "muscle suit" type of costumes
as well as padding that obfuscates the human form to give the illusion that a wearer is not inside.
Plush padding is done with the intent to create the illusion that the costume is a large stuffed toy. These
costumes are generally rotund with shotened limbs and large hands and/or feet. Often, a costume with this
padding also contains visible stitching, seams, and/or zippers as stylistic choices to complete the "toy"
The style of a costume is a distinctive look that results from how the costume is made.
Realistic costumes are meant to look like real-life living and breathing animals. They usually have resin eyes
with vision through the tear ducts and natural fur colors.
Toony costumes are meant to look like walking cartoon characters. They usually have large eyes and bright fur
Commonly referred to as "Semi realistic," this style combines features of realistic and toony costumes to give
its own unique look.
A very distinct toony style modeled after the anime and manga of Japan. Costumes in this style usually have
large dome eyes, tiny mouths, and small bodies with large paws.
