Did a few cloth sims to get a sense of size. Obviously it can't really be the right scale hood with a head this big.

Scaled it by 50% did a better, more natural shape for the hood and re-sim'ed it.
Lost some of the detail in the sculpt when I brought it in and messed with its shape and silhouette.

Still have more work to do, and its going to be tough with a house guest for the next few days. I'll see what I can squeeze in, but I doubt I'll have the character ready by Saturday AM. New goal is end of weekend.
