Okay, so about the hoods–those are really cheap “disguises”. The Eye had to cut edges since The Luminary’s economy is still shaking. Even if it wasn’t, Orphan would have to cut edges anyway, because come on, they don’t have unlimited money. Also, another reason why they were these hoods rather than have proper cloaking is because they are really lazy. So, they just kind of hide in the darkness.

Or they do what Men In Black do. Except they don’t have a memory whipe thing. They just say, “Go to this therapist since after this moment everyone will think you are deranged. Good luck with that!!”.
