I did a search but can't seem to come up with anything. As I've gotten into doing sets, I've been thinking about taking it another step and start wearing a "little old lady" plastic rain bonnet. I have an umbrella but I'd still like that extra protection. ;) I haven't been able to find them at any of the stores I've looked. Do they even make them anymore?

Like these? http://www.cachebeauty.com/accessry.htm (Scroll waaaaay down for the rain bonnets!). I have not done business with this site, but they also have some other nifty things (clips, sleep bonnets, etc.).

If you do a goole search for "rain bonnet" you will find a gazillion, I think I've even seen them at Sally's. But look at this!
Upcycled from a broken umbrella. Too cute!

I saw some in Walmart the other day, next to where they sell the umbrellas.

So what's up with the Sure Coiffure? The one that makes you look like there's a heavy-contact sport on your near future....

That's the kind of thing Marge Simpson wears to bed. I particularly like the Petal Hat, but I don't think I want to spend $22 on one.

It definitely has an old-timey football/wrestling vibe to it... :D

Of course, be prepared... my google search for rain bonnets brought up something about fetish rain gear. Fetish rain gear?? Who knew? And I thought one had to be careful searching for seamed stockings and garter belts! Rain gear?

And Zendy, that is cute. And it's weird... I have the exact same dress as the girl in the photo. But I got mine at Goodwill (might be the same dress!).

You can point to any item in the Sears catalog, and someone, somewhere wants to go to bed with it. Such a world we live in.

As far as rain bonnets go, I've never had trouble finding them at any Wal Mart/K-Mart-type discount chain or at any drugstore. The cheap cellophane ones aren't as good as the vinyl ones that have a bit of structure to them -- the best kind have a back that comes down far enough to cover loose-hanging just-below-the-shoulder-length hair.

Over here you can often find them in little corner shop type drugstores. I've got a clear one with white polkadots that I adore!

I don't mean to be unladylike but I supect the rain gear is used with an altogther different kind of liquid in the fetish world....ehem...

The scandinavians can get rain bonnets (and shower caps) at Matas, a great store for old lady necessities. Here's mine:
