If there’s an article of clothing that’s quietly become a uniform for the modern era, it’s the humble hoodie. They are apparently the item of choice for everyone from women having their period, if ads are to be believed, to tech giants. And now, the hoodie has finally become better… by turning you into Voltron!
Sadly, this is not a hoodie where you get five different parts and assemble them with Velcro. That would, perhaps, be too much awesome for any one article of clothing. And it’d definitely be an excessive amount of work. No, instead this is a complete hoodie. Just with… some extras that make it special.
Defender Of The Torso
Specifically, it’s a “costume hoodie”, meaning that there’s a bit more to it than just a silkscreen print of the Voltron logo. First of all, the cuffs of the hoodie have stuffing around the edges to give the lion’s mouths more texture and dimensionality. Then, there’s a mouth covering in the form of a lion jaw, both to keep you a little bit warmer and to make it easier to pass yourself off as a giant robot. Finally, there’s the hood, which has all the costume elements you could want, namely a pretty much perfect plush reproduction of Voltron’s head, right down to the goofy antlers. Yes, I know they’re not supposed to be antlers, but come on… what would you call them?
A Formal Hoodie For Formal Occasions
Obviously, unless you are supremely confident in your nerdiness and/or have a partner who will be seen with you in public wearing this, you probably won’t be pulling the Voltron hoodie out every single day. But when you need it, whether you’re defending the universe or just forgot to get a Halloween costume in time for the big day, it’ll be there.
