Paper Hat Tear
Paper Hat Tear (or Paper Hat Trick or Hat Tear) is a routine in which colored pieces of paper are torn to create a hat.
A follow-up involves having the paper restored into a pair of panties and known as Hat' and Pants.
Other magicians who regularly performed this effect:
- Glen Pope (1937)
- William Stickland created a gasmask version from the torn pieces (1939).
- A version in which the torn papers become a pair of ladies panties was being sold in the 1940s.
- Jim Bergstrom has a version that was published by Ron Bauer in 2007 as part of the Ron Bauer Private Studies Series (#22 Jim Bergstrom's Hat Trick).
