Revised F-suit hood design
I am currently working with a client on a design for a custom f-suit with attached hood, and we have exchanged sketches detailing the specifics of the hood. It will be an open-faced hood, but with detatchable blindfold and mouth cover. I showed the initial sketch in a previous post, and the client (who I must say is full of really good and creative ideas) sent back a revised sketch which offered a much better solution to the design problem. Instead of traveling straight back from the mouth cover to the back of the hood, the top strap is angled up to provide a bit of upward tension. The blindfold strap now angles in a more downward direction to connect with a buckle placed between the two mouth cover straps.
It's very cool looking, and I think it is going to look great on the finished piece. This is definitely a situation where working with someone else can take the design into an enexpected direction - resulting in a better, more artistic solution.
