I loved these so much that I made a purple one for myself - and then ended up making another purple one, and another white one, for a friend of mine, as a surprise from her boyfriend. Hee!
Because I LIKE them layered like this. The red one doesn't have ties, so I tied the white one back around it to keep them together, and back from my face (because, seriously, if I had ties swinging around my neck all day I'd either catch them on something and end up being killed by a paper shredder, or I'd rip the damned thing off and throw it in a fire).
Doesn't look pointy and weird from the front, yay! My hair's just loose under here; but when I wear it for the event next weekend, I plan to braid it all back from my face and collect the braids in the back - either knotted together or hanging free down the back. Most people do side-braids, which I find very pretty and feminine...on them. On me I just look like a 36 year old woman dressed up as a child for Halloween.
Next stop: jewelry! The friend for whom I made the purple and white hoods is loaning me a pair of brooches, and has given me free run of her glass bead collection. Whee!
