Since olden times, hoods have been used almost exclusively to protect their wearers from the elements, and DJ Khaled from having to say "I'm so 'Burb". Now using them to freak out the squares; Spirit Hoods.
Tricked-out with realistic 100% faux-fur, and hand-warming paws attached by scarves, these hoods're all created by a "tribe" of PDX/LA buddies led by an aspiring actor whose biggest role -- in Twilight -- saw Kristen Stewart kick him in the nads, aka his spirit goods. The hand-made head-sheaves are unisex because the real point is "what's important is choosing the right animal for you"; choices start w/ North American/Arctic critters like the reddish-gray furred Wolf (best for "social animals who are loyal team players"), the bushy white Snow Leopard (whose solitary spirit is "full of grace & beauty"), and the patterned satin pawed Brown Bear whose wearers "know how to protect their own", unless their own is Timothy Treadwell. More exotic beasts include the black eared Panda (for "great cuddlers"), the golden furred Lion (for "social cats"), and the richly detailed Leopard ("blends in to all situations"); although SH can also hood you in the plain domestic Black Cat, perfect for those whose spirit is channeled exclusively by grammar school librarians/witches.
Because you're dying to know more, SH also offers some hoods w/o the attached scarves/paws (half hood), and donates proceeds to charities that exclusively protect that animal from becoming endangered, like the rarest of beasts, someone who likes DJ Khaled.
