Short Top Hat(Hat Guy's Hat)

About: I like duct tape.

It's like a top hat but shorter.
It's Hat Guy's hat from the web comic XKCD

Step 1: Materials

Box Cutter
Duct Tape

Step 2: 2 Circles

First of all you have to cut a circle. The size that the top of the hat should be.
Then cut another circle that is a few inches bigger than the first.

Step 3: Head Hole

In the bigger circle you should cut a head hole. Not enough to go over your head but just rest on top of it.

Step 4: The Connection.

Create a small strip of cardboard that is the length of the circumference of the small circle. and the tallness that you want the hat to be.

Step 5:

Use duct tape to connect it all together.

ok you xkcd freaks I've got an idea. I'm going to make a stick figure costume for next halloween. Sorry but you'll have to wait. If you really want to then I'll add it to the xkcd club on instructabes. If they dont have one then i'll make one

I'm actually doing this for this halloween :D Thanks a lot for this 'ible, it gave me the idea. Can't wait to see how your going to do the costume, I opted for a white morphsuit (the weird full body plus head spandex suits) and electrical tape. Good luck with the costume and thanks again! :D

awesome. the only problem is even if you were this people wont know you are dressed up as hat guy. maybe you need to make a red cape and hot air balloon out of duct tape? or maybe actually turn your self into a stick figure? the possibility are awesome.

I know, I just meant that since the hat guys costume wasn't very distinctive you could also make a Cory Doctorow costume.
