You might have some luck here. He might be persuaded to do one just like your desired hat, cannot hurt to ask. Tony Barton has done at least one tutorial on making felt hats, but I haven't found it yet.

Good hunting!

Search "1/6 scale custom clothing" (or doll) and you'll find plenty of talented people who can make that top hat.

Stevo makes the best hats in my opinion because he custom makes them to the measurements you give him.....so if your measurements are correct.....the hat will fit perfectly.

He already makes a hat very close to that....given the picture I'm sure he'd tweak his design.....he's done it for me in the past

Broker's Gin has a plastic Bowler which is good for 1/6th.

That's got to be one of the greatest suggestions of all time. :clap (Sadly I don't think the bottles in Ontario have the bowler on their Broker's bottles but other Canadian provinces apparently do).

Off the top of my head (pun) I recall 1/6 bowlers with Avengers John Steed, Charles Chaplin, also Big Chief John Watson, and going way back to 1967 and in the wrong color, Marx Mike Hazard. Top hats with DiD Churchill, probably the best one, and two oversize ones, Phicen Lady Magician and DC Direct Zatanna. There's a fair number of 1/6 fedora style hats but that's something else again.

Brokers Gin sold in Ontario does come with the hat. I have several of them. You need to dremmel it out just a little.

Good to know -- need any help emptying the bottles? :)

Actually somebody else just told me this is so -- although the LCBO website shows a regular cap picture instead -- and also, that apparently right now they have a St Patrick themed promo where the bowler is Green, so that's basically a Batman Riddler bash all by itself.

I second Dioman, that Stevo does top notch work. A bit of wait, since they're custom done to size, and well worth it.

Thanks. :thumb My first i thought, as im very exact with details, was that the shape of the edge of the rim would be an issue to me :think. But i have noticed it wont be an issue at all.:dancing The reason is i have noticed there is hats with pretty flat brims and not as on the picture. :erm

:thanks

Just drop Amy a line....there is a disclaimer somewhere on her site that if something you are interested in is sold out to just tell her and she'll make you one
