Fantasy Hoods

An essential and easy addition to any range of fantasy or sci-fi costumes... the HOOD. In particular when you're trying to disguise your identity, fight the Man or work as a vigilante.

These are pretty simple styled garments, cropped to chest length, and open sided (except for a bit of elastic under the arm to adjust fit). Grommets and lacing in the front adds functionality and style. The hood itself is a nice, full cut that has nice, classic form. They're actually a unisex design.

Hoods work better (keep their shape better) when made from heavier weight materials, so I used some fun upholestry weight and heavy twills to make these. The black-on-black raised dot fabric I particularly enjoy (yay! texture). The gears on the heavy drab green hood give it a little steampunk/cyberpunk flavor.

-Medieval Style Dress (cheater: made from a modern knit fabric is super cozy but with the same silhouette)
-Taffeta Underskirt (Not seen)
-Overbust Corset (in brocade with brass zip front.)
-Wooden Crossbow Toy (can't remember the website I ordered it from)
-Gold Cuff Bracelet (Marshalls, maybe?)
