Has anybody made their own monitor hood, particularly for an NEC wide LCD display? I have been thinking of using black matboard, but the problem is that the top and sides of the monitor have ventilation slots that should not be covered. This leaves about one inch in depth from the front of the bezel back to the ventilation slots. Would 2 Velcro spots near the corners on the top and each side be able to hold the stuff on? Or would the heat keep the Velcro from adhering to the plastic? Or would some kind of thin "straps" that go completely over the top and somehow anchor in the handhold cutouts on the back of the monitor be better?
I make great photographs and prints but I am all thumbs when it comes to something like this. My plan would be to cut this out on my mat cutter, but if somebody already knows of a pattern I could use, it would help tremendously.
