At least something on this costume is completely finished. Haha.
I used plastic braided cord for the base - no wire, since it just sort of sits on top of his head. I painted it to match the gold fabric on the costume itself.
The leaves are craft foam. I cut out a few dozen and folded them in half so that they had a slight dimensionality to them, since they aren't really flat in the game. These I painted the same shade of gold.
The leaves are simply hot-glued on, following the three-leaf, one-leaf type pattern in the art book sketches. I believe the back of the crown actually has a gap, but I didn't like how it translated in the real thing, so I added a few extra leaves.
The entire crown was sealed in gloss Mod Podge.
The black "pearls" are hematite beads, glued on after the rest was done.
Total hours: ~ 5

Ahh, thank you!! I shamelessly admit to wearing it around the house when I finished it.
