Entry: dewimpled (adj.)

In context: "Lyle, a dewimpled Carmelite who works the kitchen day-shift, occasionally Mario Incandenza, and many times Avril herself take up most of the psychic slack, for practical purposes, among E.T.A.s in the know.:

Definition: A neologism.  I've previously included wimples, and wimpled (adj.) is: Enveloped in or wearing a wimple; hence, veiled, occas. blindfolded.

So dewimpled must be the removal or absence of a wimple?
