The Woman Who Dresses The Klu Klax Klan

by | 29th, May 2008

NEATORAMA takes a look at the Klu Klax Kland and who to get their look:

58-year-old Miss Ruth is tailor to one of the world’s most hateful (and hated) group, the Ku Klux Klan:

Coming from five generations of Ku Klux Klan members, 58-year-old “Ms. Ruth” sews hoods and robes for Klan members seven days a week, blessing each one when it’s done. A red satin outfit for an Exalted Cyclops, the head of a local chapter, costs about $140.

I didn’t realize there are so many steps in making a KKK robe! I thought it was simply:

1. Take bedsheet
2. Cut eyeholes
3. ???
4. Profit!
