Picture of Uzbeki Spy Hat (or Wizard Hat)
Pashmina Suleyman (below, in the only clear photo of her known to exist) and her partner Kutchima (AKA Koochie Mama), the famed Uzbeki spies, wear these to blend in with the San Francisco natives during intelligence-gathering missions. They are often mistaken for wizards, but that is silly because wizards aren't real.

You COULD, of course, wear a hat of this style if you were dressing up in a wizard COSTUME. That would be silly too, but in a good way.

Aw jeez, *another* Gandalf-belief-loss paraphernalia-destruction/suicide. That's the third one this week, someone really ought to do something...

is there actually any cultural significance to the hat? or just being silly?
rachel (author)  jaysbob7 years ago
No, no, we are just being silly. The Uzbeki bit is random, we just wanted somewhere Far Away to pretend to be from, for a fancy-dress party we attended.

pointless? pointless? do you not see the point, right there on top of the hat?
She's got a poi... I mean, she's got you there.
Haha, cool! Would go great with KaptainScarlet's (something like that, I think that is how you spell his account name) magical wand thing. Great job Rachel!
