I am looking for a top hat, preferably black in colour, but may be an other shrill colour too. Here comes the difficult bit; I'd like it to be 0,5 meters of hight or taller, it should be hollow (not stuffed with something so it becomes heavy and maybe easier to wear). It should be flat on top. If tou are wondering where I got this mad idea from, I can only say it is from "The Encyclopedia of Ball Juggling," and "The Compendium of Club Juggling," both by Charlie Dancey. I am a juggler/circus artist, but I also want to start with magic, and am grateful that I found this forum.

PS: I live in Norway, but suggestions of shops/websites or other in other countries are fine too.

I would do a search using the word "Stovepipe Hat".

Thank you Vandy Grift, I'll either order one of those I found there, or make one myself, any ideas how?

Edit: It doesn't have to be professional, just ridiculously tall, and preferably solid enough for a bit of handing.

Top Hat envy?

Yes, I just saw this guy on the back of The Linking Ring. I said *** that's a tall tophat. Maybe Jonta can track him down and find out where he got it.

Give http://www.villagehatshop.com your business.

They are good people who have a TON of different hats and are fantastic to work with.

I've bought a bunch of hats off of them over the years.

Not once have they disappointed me.

Very true, they have got a lot of nice hats, but I don't think any one of them fits my needs...

Ah well, I think I'll just make one myself, maybe I get a brilliant idea, who knows?
