Child Gnome Hoodie Costume
Gnomes were first introduced into our lore by the Swiss alchemist Paracelsus, who in the 1500s wrote about a class of earth elementals called the Gnomi. He described them as about 14 inches tall, shy and reclusive, and able to move through earth as easily as we can through air. Sounds like a pretty handy skill to have if you don’t want people to bother you.
Flash forward 500 years to when we know gnomes as lovable bearded guys with distinctive pointy red caps. This hoodie captures all the key gnome features, including the pointy ears and the big, charismatic belt buckle. You won’t be able to walk through solid rock while you’re wearing this, but hey! Go ahead and try. Knock yourself out.
Special note to kids: If your parents don’t buy you the Gnome Hoodie, it’s because they don’t really love you.
