This is a fun thread!  Not sure about my favorite... Must think!  The traditional Dominican black and white is very striking, but wearing white is scary.

Can you imagine walking around with this on your head?

I'd think that doorways would be problematic...

Is there any communities left that still wear it?

Very, very interesting project to preserve traditional habits by making sewing patterns to recreate them:  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1207622694/open-source-archive-of-patterns-for-nuns-habits

Something to keep an eye out for!
