Need help to identify a Nyingmapa hat

What is this hat called?
For what purpose is this hat?
Who wears that in general?
It looks a little like the chodpa's hat.
The ancient translators - Kawa Paltseg, Vairocana - all concentrated on meaning, on the real sence. Even if the words do not correspond perfectly between Sanskrit & Tibetan, they concentrated more on the essence. Those who translated later concentrated more on the literal text, on the words.

From your description it sounds like a pandita hat, but from the picture it looks like one that Liberace would have worn

Seems like a hat worn by people during a drubchen, but I’m sure there’s a more specific answer.

It's called a Rigdzin Shamu and it is worn during certain ceremonies or certain parts of ceremonies to confer majesty and glory on the practitioner.
