Build by SparklePupStudios.
Bought as an auction.

Enhancements from the original build:
* Added liner to cover the back of the fur flaps going on chest
* Added (removable) teeth
* Added (removable) tongue
* Rebuilt the mouth opening to increase airflow and reshape profile
* Added inside flap below nose to improve brethability and heat control (that's not done on any other suit and works well)

Props:
* 2 pairs of party glasses
* Cowboy hat with LED colored badge and cowhide
* Duster cowboy coat with hidden rainbow color LEDs
Notes: This was the first 3D eyes suit by SparklePupStudio. It had some flaws originally with comfort and breathing making it unpleasant to wear, fixed with a rework of the mouth and controlling the flow of air in the head.
This rework also improved the profile aesthetics without changing much the front looks.
Teeth and tongue increased the cuteness factor to *daaaw*.

The eyes are a bit too high for the wearer so best photo angle is achieved by tilting the head up past where the camera is visible.
The head has 2 main expressions, poutty and happy based on the head tilt angle.
