Finished draping the inner hood

It needs to be ironed, but you get the idea. I draped the inner hood. Now all I have to do is cut the real fabric for the inner hood. Sweet!

Has anyone here tried draping a head?

This is a first. I have never draped a head before. I wanted to get the right look for the "underhood" for the Flame Handmaiden. It kind of reminds me of a balaklava.
Well you learn something new everyday!

Everyone like my assistant?

Haha! I taped my styrofoam head to my dress form. Don't judge me, it works. ;)
If you take a good look at the Flame Handmaiden outfit, the hood is actually attached to a panel of fabric that goes over the dress. I replicated the seams on the shoulders and one simple seam on the top of the hood.
Once again, obviously not dyed yet.... But I'm getting there! I will be dying swatches tonight!
