This was a costume project for Ann Shilling of the Seattle Knights, additions to her Eowyn costume worn at a number of Lord of the Rings Conventions in the Northwest. The base helmet was a leather viking helm, modified extensively by me. All of the embossing on the leather helm was done by hand. For the embossing on the baldric (sword belt) I recreated two of the prominent designs from the movie, made rubber stamps of them, then made urethane castings of those and used them as leather stamps. A very fun project, and Ann made a great Eowyn! Bring on the Witch King!
