Re: REEVZ "Hush" cowl **1st pull pg.5**


So rather than start a new thread I thought I'd just add to this one.

My Reevs Hush cowl arrived today - thanks Shawn, it looks awesome.

But it's my first cowl and I was just wondering for some advice on how to, you know, put it on. I was thinking of using baby powder/talc - that'd be fine right, wouldn't react poorly with the latex or anything? My hair's pretty long and that's making it harder - the brief few seconds I tried putting it on caused a lot of pulling.

Secondly, there are a few imperfections here and there, little "drops" of latex, mostly at the back fortunately, I was just wondering the best way to remove them - dremel tool I guess, or just a sharp hobby knife? Obviously I'd want the most cosmetically pleasing result. Anyway it's not so noticeable and I probably won't bother with that for a while - I just want to see what it looks like on me first!

Again Shawn - thanks a lot and great work. Now I just need to work out a good was to display the thing.

Re: REEVZ "Hush" cowl **1st pull pg.5**


Luke i have this cowl as well, and yea its amazing. I havent really posted anything yet, because Im still working on the rest of the gear.

I tell this to EVERYONE, and it is the BEST way to make wearing a cowl [sign in to see URL] should be stickied somewhere already its perfect for cowls, ill make a thread later.

Anyways what you need to do is get a slick spandex, you can usually find it at your local joanns or fabric store. There are different thickness of spandex you can use, the slicker stuff i use is a bit thinner and a swimwear type i think. Cut a piece long enough to wrap around the full inside of the openning of the cowl, make sure its long enough to hang down into the cowl. I usually have it long enough to hang into the full neck at least. But if u do the full length of the cowl you can trim away the excess in the front so that it ends at the mouth openning so you dont get it in your eyes and face everytime. I usually let the back fill up the length of the back of the cowl.

I use super glue and glue the spadex in at the neck slowly, only just enough is glued in at the openning the rest hangs freely inside the cowl. Once glued up, you can easily put your head and slide in slickly and easily. The spandex will also add some comfort so you dont have that sticky rubber feeling all over your head. Helps absorb sweet as well. Its a simple thing to add, but a MUST in my book to make a cowl go on easy without needing powder and other messy substances.

You can just hang the material into the cowl and slide it on without gluing, but if your wearing it alot just glue it in and cut it to the right size, makes it much easier. In my eyes it doesnt hurt the value of the cowl, it actually makes it more costume friendly.


As for the extra urethane, some of it you can just pick at and peel away. If you use a dremel be VERY careful, cause its easy to slip and make a mark on your urethane. You might have to trim certian things like the eye opennings too for your comfort, just do a little at a time though. I usually have to trim the inner part of the eye on cowls so i dont get that stabbing feeling.

Here is a sample of me in my cowl with cape. Body suit is for my animated bats (in the works) waiting on hush suit. Touched up the background quickly and added in the mirror lenses in photoshop, but thats pretty much exactly how they look.

Wow, so you've actually got real mirror lenses in there? I'd love to see what that looks like for real, rather than just the photoshop mockup. But I'll let you wait till you're ready.

Anyway I did get my cowl on with talcum powder, still a bit uncomfortable but it worked. I did think of some kind of fabric under-hood you can wear but your idea sounds easier.

Worst thing about wearing the cowl - I can't see a thing without my glasses so I don't really know what I look like in it, unless I get a few inches away from the mirror. Have to take some photos I guess.

Re: REEVZ "Hush" cowl **1st pull pg.5**


i had the same stupid misconception about a hood before too, but i just wasnt thinking. Wearing a hood is fine, BUT you can put on a hood and try to slide the cowl on, that still wont work. You will still be trying to slide a sticky surface over another surface and it will still be hard. You need to install the lining like i mentiond. If youd like to wear a hood and THEN slide the cowl on with the lining already in, thats fine, it will work, ive done it. But ull need something in the cowl still.

Yea i drew those eyes in but its pretty accurate to how it will look. They will flash out a bit whiter too with cameras. I can see perfectly through them too.
