Shield me from the cold...



The hooded cloak has dominated my mind all winter. A secret dark void to shield from the harsh cold. I've been dreaming about the druid hood shape in particular. I first saw it in some drawings by Goya and thought what a wonderfully creepy look. Daniel Palillo and Olmar and Mirta are the closet things to what I want. Unfortunately I was outbid on the Olmar and Mirta. I have no idea were to find their garments other than what they do for Rick Owens. So how happy was I to find this amazing plaid mohair wool cape! My desire is quenched for now. Here are a few covet worthy contenders.

They really do! I missed out on a red plaid one like the white one in my photo :( It was at a strange hour and only sold for 20.00

Absolutely! I constantly drool at Iain McCaig's Character designs for SW. I'm teaching myself to sew. I think a cape would be a good starting point!
