The cover not only protects from dust but also from drafts and serves to keep moisture within the confines of the machine, helping to keep the ink in the capping station from drying too fast .
Dont bother with a fancy cover just get some   painter plastic drop cloth material big enough to cover the machine floor to floor from the front and back and drape the sides. I think about 8 x 12 feet ;-)

If the printer were in my basement, something like that would be fine.  But the printer sits in my studio and easily seen from the gallery area 'out front'. From a retail perspective, I'd need something that is not only functional, but that looks 'neat and tidy' as well. Image is everything eh!

Now that's printer love!   Cheesy

I just use a simple large black cloth, similar to lycra.  Very nondescript and clients don't even notice there is a "beast" in the room.  If you have your printer in a more common client area, you might want to "invest" in a custom printer cover ---or a cozy.   Grin

You'll know the honeymoon is over when you stop covering the printer.  Then you can get down to some serious work.

All you really need is a scrap of media long enough to cover the traditional Epson air-gap / dust-admittance-port just under the roll hood.    As an exercise in eschewing worldly values, you can attach a strip of media or corrugated cardboard to the hood with masking tape and just flip it down between sessions.  The sooner your printer feels like an old shoe, the better.  IMHO.

framah your Granny Cover (tm) looks tempting, but is it genuine Angora?

Unfortunately, Grammy is allergic to angora so she has to use that synthetic stuff!

But the Barbie doll IS a nice touch, don'cha think?

That can't be a Barbie-doll.  Barbie (at least as I remember her) is ultra-thin, including her face.  And this from a --Barbara    BTW, Bill, I love your suggestion of the media flap.  I have just acquired the Canon 8300, at those nice recent sale prices, and have been having trouble, from the get-go, with the printer stopping about 3/16 inch short of cutting or ejecting my print.  And the tech people, who have just sent a replacement part and will visit next week, think it is due to dust settling on the thin ribbon-like thing stretching behind the path the print-head takes across the print -- the one that is above and behind and is transparent along the top half of the strip.  Anyway, I had had no idea that an invisible amount of dust could have that much effect, and am trying to figure out how to deal with it.  And it is that air-gap along the front below the edge of the hood that is the source, they say.  Also, I am getting a noise that I am sure is abnormal, and that may be what the replacement part is for.  Meanwhile, I do love the prints.  I have wanted to print larger for some time, without knowing exactly why.  When I saw my new prints, I knew the answer.  It is because we see the world that way, spread out in front of us.  I am loving it.  --Barbara, again

I like the way you think Bill. I hate covers...  Never know where to put them when you take them off.. Especially something that big. That's why mr BBQ cover stays off all summer - always ready to be fired up!

My 9890 sits right in the front window on the sales floor in the gallery. You can see it just fine through the clear plastic cover and it attracts alot of attention. Protection is everything ;-)

Of course it attracts a lot of attention!  I tell my friends that it is the size of a coffin, because it is more than six feet long, and they don't believe it until they see it. --Barbara
