Ghillie Suits


Yeah, hunters use ghillie suits, but so do BF hunters. I am in love with these crazy things. They are like giant teddy bears!

Cabela's has a leaf one if you want the Green Man look. Only $69.99


(Wikipedia) A ghillie suit, wookie suit, yowie suit, or camo tent is a type of camouflage clothing designed to resemble heavy foliage. Typically, it is a net or cloth garment covered in loose strips of cloth or twine, sometimes made to look like leaves and twigs, and optionally augmented with scraps of foliage from the area. Snipers and hunters may wear a ghillie suit to blend into their surroundings and conceal themselves from enemies or targets. The suit gives the wearer's outline a three-dimensional breakup, rather than a linear one. When manufactured correctly, the suit will move in the wind in the same way as surrounding foliage.



See how well they work?



How about dancing in a Ghillie Suit?

  2. To blend in with the landscape in Florida, you would have to be littered with fast-food wrappers.

  3. Yes, Max, but I don't think it makes that adorable sound.

    Barry, I get you here. Here in AZ, it would have to look like a dust devil.

  4. Wow! … You actually introduced your readership to the cult Artronica band (Art+Electronica) from Sweden, iamamiwhoami, with this piece on ghillie suits. You're awesome, Sharon. But hey, you already knew that. you must gno that the prelude to their newest song, sever, that you uploaded, is actually this one, wherein the strange furry behemoth Jonna Lee dances around with is still diminutive in size. Love makes things grow, mayhaps, being the gist?

    Anyone interested in the already two-years-old project can key-in to their YouTube page here. As of this writing, there are 18 songs there. Enjoy the mystery. Oh! The blog, Forsaken Order, has done some stellar work decoding the mysterious symbology in iamamiwhoami's music videos right here. Happy hunting.
