Can you think of a better way to kick off a post about animal hoods than a painting of a guinea pig in a hood? I can't.
As far as the weather goes, we seem to have hit that funky spot where it's not quite winter but it's not yet spring. Which stinks, because I am just about completely over this whole snow-and-cold-and-sleet stuff, but it doesn't quite look like spring is ready to happen just yet.
The worst part about this is the fact that I am also pretty much over winter-weather hats, too. After several months of heavy-duty knits and crochets, it starts to get a little tiresome and it gets harder and harder to find things that spark your interest.
Luckily for me (and for you, too,) I did come across something recently that caught my eye. And now, I'm gonna share 'em with you. Because that's what I do.
First up, we've got this nifty little red-eared hooded number, complete with checked lining. Because if you're going to go with an animal hood, you might as well go large, right?
Of course, if you'd rather go with something a little less fox-like and something a bit more cuddly, you can't really go wrong with a bear hood.
I would just like to take this moment to state for the record that I likely would've posted this wolf hood anyway, but the fact that the seller decided to use somebody's feet as the model for it clinched it. Because honestly, I can't make up my mind if that it rather creative, kinda odd or both. What do you think?
If there is any downside to this cheerful little teddy-bear hood, it's probably that people will want to hug you. A lot. And if you're not a huggy person, that could be a bad thing. But if you're all about the hugs, this hat would likely get you plenty of them.
The thing I think I like best about this kitty-eared hood is that it's reversible. So it's kind of like that whole Almond Joy/Mounds thing; if you feel like wearing kitty ears, you can, and if you don't, you don't have to.
And just because no animal hood post would be complete without it, here's a hood based on the costume of the protagonist from Where The Wild Things Are:
To be fair, I never really knew what Max's costume was supposed to be, other than the fact that it was supposed to be a mammal. A wolf? An albino mountain lion? A mutated squirrel? GIVE ME A SIGN, MAURICE SENDAK.
And on that note, that's it for today. See you Friday!
