i would love the Blackstyle hood myself has anyone every bought one,would complete my Rubber-Tomcat costume very nicely
HW Design did a sweet one for Kumi that's a combination Catwoman, furry. Have you checked their schedule?
I may do a longer blog entry about the idea of the illusion of the illusion in role play.
Some things which occurred to me about hoods.. they do conceal your identity and facial expressions... the latter to anyone observing.. but the former is not quite being anonymous. If someone you are "playing" with knows, you, your face etc... then wearing the hood is not concealing your identity from them... they know who is inside the hood.
Admittedly it does give one complete anonymity amongst strangers or it could amongst a group of people who all arrive at a mask ball... who is who here? If no one give their identity away by their voice or their stature... then there would be a kind of anonymity... an Eyes Wide Shut kinda thing.
So what does it take for us to believe the "illusion" of anonymity? If we go to an event and someone who is hooded says... Hi, I am Dark.. or Rubber Kitty or whatever... you have an idea of who the person is so no anonymity would attend?
But the look of hoods are also appealing regardless if anonymity attends (for hood lovers)... so what do you think the appeal is? Could it be as simply as you like the way it looks? Why is a masked or hood face more appealing that an unmasked one? Where does the illusion of the illusion come into play?
Perhaps it may be something like.. I like how "I" feel in a hood and if you are wearing one.. you must like the same or similar feeling.. so we like the same things and I think it is attractive.. just as if they wear anything that appeals to your taste? Wow you like thigh boots! hey we share that!
Do you think more is made of the "anonymity" thing.. the illusion of the illusion... than is really there? What appeals to you about OTHERS wearing hoods? Who IS the hooded character who stand before you?

I bet no one knows what I look like, exept maybe a few, so in general my dolls hood gives me anonimity, and the thrill of that is exciting.
Also most satifaction is your own perseption of yourself.
Why would a couple wear hoods, not anything other than they feel more sexy, and the visual efect helps the fantacy.
Why would loners wear hoods, it is all part of portraying a erotic immage of yourself, and the tightness of the hood around your head brings the whole erotic feel to a higher level.
Trying to fathom out why is pointless as every one has a different slant on it, you cannot understand everything.
Sometimes you see something you want, you have no need of it, you just want it regardless.
Thanks for the pointers, esp. the one about HW Design I hadn't seen before. I guess the hood in the first pic is a one-shot deal that only the owners of that have (a cat and mouse duo). 99% of the hoods out there look a little too feminine, which is not the look I'm going for.
Dark- I'm not really into wearing hoods per-se, only for this particular Halloween event. I'd actually prefer something a little more "open air" along the lines of what Pretty Pervy offers in their "Puppy Muzzle", because it gets quite hot even with that (last year's costume).
Any other suggestions out there?
I visited your current sponsor.
Besides the usual stuff, they dare to offer hoods sans any openings for
customising, the last one with this offer was the late Lampe of Hamburg.
Other insist on either nostrils or mouths, the late Winny of Cologne/Rhine,
who made the costume in my avatar, had a visit by the police when one of
his customers suffocated in such a hood.
Note "Das Fetisch Atelier" is now a dungeon in a different place.
He was more famous of his male chastity belts made of stainless steel.
An altarboy mentioned these on his site.
If he would have had better luck, not going bankrupt in mid 2000 and dying
in mid 2001, I would have had applied for a job at his shop and perhaps be
now in the rubberist business.
But I think, most of our suppliers may be better hobbyist shops with
another means of income for living, so this costs fall away and allow for
break even at a lower level, perhaps even some means of subsidy from the
I know of fixed costs gobbling up needed raw profits for a living and wages
for the employees as I went bankrupt with my pub in Spring 1998.
There have been a few pix of such hoods in the Net some time ago.
Also their balloons are interesting, the small one fits snugly around the
neck, a neck strap would allow inflation so you can stay a while inside,
much longer than under those closed hoods.
Aye, the big balloon is designed for going completely into it, but it is
also fine to be just worn down to the waist. Again it could be inflated for
But it would be a fine idea to wear the small one inflated over the head
and the big one down to the waist and evacuated. A fine look, especially in
Underneath a nostril-only hood with inflateble gag, and the arms put into a
sleeveless straitjacket like GUWI's "Slavka", Sealwear has the same item. A
hobble skirt limits stride, but allows to be walked around the location or
better a secluded garden, because you start with fresh air in the balloon
instead of the fug in many locations which has to be cut with an axe, where
such suffocation stunts are practically impossible unless you fill it from
an oxygen flask.
Only a bag is decent clothing!
Six weeks after ordering the first mask for the misses it has finally been send.

Actually I am not sure about the difference between the term "hood" and "mask", but anyway I want to buy a latex that covers my head with only nose, mouth and eye opening, and be able to cover my neck to some extent so as to be no skin between my neck and lower part uncovered (I am using latex skin suit that comes without hood/mask). I want it black and sexy. I have a bit large head with forehead circumference of approx 62cm. I want there are attaching points next to the eyes and mouths so that a matching blindfold and a gag can be used whenever necessary. Any good suggestion ? Any web link? I hope I can also buy a pair of latex sock and glove, as well as latex shiner from the same web so that a combine shipping is possible and thus saving up lots. (Because I am in China, which is very much distant from European/American countries, where I believe quality latex products usually comes from.)
Thank for anyone's advice
