    I'm making an Aragorn outfit for my other half and was wondering if anyone can give me any advice or ideas on how to tackle making Aragorn's crown?

    Yes, Ive seen them for sale, theyre around £200, way more than I want to spend on one part of the costume. I'd rather have a go at making one, if nothing else it'll be interesting to try, even if it doesnt work out right and I'll learn by having a go

    I don't have the template up anymore, but I can look for it if you like this tutorial I made:

    that would be cool to make that crown. They have a pepakura file out for the sword, and the crown would go nicely with it... If anyone has it, please share the crown file......

    Found the none colored version on the hard drive of my crashed computer that I salvaged. haha! I think the colored one is on my old, old computer. You'll have to figure out the size and then color it, but the basics are there.

    I would love to see the results if anyone gives it a try!

    Here is one I made recently that is less than accurate, but I used craft foam instead of card stock:

    That looks great. What did you use to produce the raised patterns? I looked around online and found references to something called puffy paint but theres nothing of that description on ebay in gold or silver and Ive never seen anything like it in craft shops in my area.

    It actually isn't called puffy paint anymore - just fabric paint. (If I ever update my page I'll change it...)

    They sell it at fabric and craft stores. Here's what it looks like:
