The castle part. How do I accomplish something like that? My initial thought was foam, but even the people at the craft store said that I'd be better off using cardboard. So how do I make cardboard do all that?

And where should I look to find something like those gems he has around it? The blue ones. I tried looking at craft gems but the only things I could find were far too small, so I was thinking of using fabric paint to paint them on and get that 3-d effect at the same time.

And the collar! It's close to his throat so the whole mantle must be in multiple parts, so how do I get that to fit together every day?

You look like you'd need something that still has a little give, though. I'm probably not the best person to ask, but I'd say layered craft foam is the way to go. Possibly with some kind of fabric over it (lycra maybe).
