Knitting Inspiration: hoods. Like, fairy tale hoods. I read somewhere that “capes are in” this year and, while I don’t give a flying fuck about that sort of thing, it does mean that suddenly all these fetching hooded capelet/shawl things are sprouting like mushrooms. (Get it? Mushrooms? Fairy rings….fairy tales? You’re right, that was a bit of a stretch.)
I’m particularly drawn to ones that are heavily textured or almost insubstantial. There was a thing with hooded scarves a few years back that I never really committed to; having seen these more voluminous alternatives, I suddenly understand why I waited. Unlike hoodies, which are ubiquitously casual to the point where I refuse to wear them, and hooded scarves, which make me think of kids who can’t be trusted to not lose individual cold weather items and are thus given a combination mittens/hood/scarf thing, these are poised somewhere between little kid make-believe and massive sophistication. I also suspect that they won’t cause hat hair, although I might have to line them to prevent unfortunate bobby pin accidents.

i don’t get how other countries have these really strict school uniform rules
have some more:
Here in Canada the captain of our football team would just walk around on random days dressed like Marilyn Monroe. Except he never bothered to shave or anything, so more like Marilyn Chewbacca.
It’s like the one thing Germans don’t have a rule about!

Well, not really. The fictional Tsardom of Khorlov was up near Ryazan and Vladimir-Suzdal in Kievan Rus, well north of Georgia, and its visuals owe a lot more to the art of Ivan Bilibin.
But putting characters in dramatic rig-outs like this…
this… (I like the way the sleeves can be thrown/hooked back out of the way - a great pre-swordfight threat gesture)
or a Badass Longcoat like this…
is too good to miss.
God, that number second from the bottom… Somebody needs to wear that walking down a red carpet somewhere. Yum.
