    Well, one problem is that in severe conditions the rear element of my lens also fogs up as the humidity seeps in around the cut corners of the ground glass. Antifogging my lens is out of the question obviously

    This is why a folding focusing hood and a long loupe work so well...

    The snorkel thing might work. The only other solution is simpler: don't exhale while you're under the darkcloth.
