Boromir's tunic and cloak clasps
I'm putting together a Boromir "Fellowship" outfit and up to this point, the impossible items were the clasps and lacers.
I've found a metalsmith who will make "Gondorian" clasps and lacers - "Gondorian" since if they are exact replicas, there's all the issues with copyrights, etc.
They will be extremely close to the actual items, but different enough in metal content and design to avoid the abovementioned problems.
Here's the rub -- they can be done with acid etch (less expensive) or they can be cast (more expensive, but very, very detailed).
If I can get enough people (24+) to be willing to purchase casted items, he'll do it and the price will go down. The clasps will be done in silvertone and goldtone - probably brass and pewter/German silver.
I'm just asking for firm interest for this item, and your comfortable price range.
Thanks in advance,
