The wife & I are going as Voodoo Priest & Priestess to host our New Orleans/Voodoo-themed party. I'm thinking of basing my costume on this one:



I'm trying to find a cool top hat to with my my version. Anyone come across one? I'd prefer not to spend a ton of money. I really like this one:

Top Hat (Rubber) Latex - Hats

But its out of stock. Any help/suggestions, as always would be greatly appreciated.

I seem to recall one of the forum members getting quite a bargain on e-bay fairly recently.
A really good quality silk topper for not a lot of $$..
Might be worth having a look on there...

I was also going to suggest just making your own. Most local costume shops sell top hats at reasonable prices. All you really need is a glue gun, ribbon, some small plastic bones, and maybe some feathers.

Love the idea, mr. synical. I'm with everyone else, buy a cheap hat and you could also cover it in fabric. Just a thought, a rubber hat might get hot during the night. Felt or faux felt might breathe a little better.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. I think I probably will go the route of getting a regular top hat & decorating it myself. And good point, Skulkin, about the latex getting hot.
