The Booze Crown by Petrichora
The Booze Crown

I made a Booze Crown for ShotgunLotus, some friends of mine who do a Magic: The Gathering stream of a type of play called Vintage Rotisserie. They play tournaments with a liquor buy-in, so for their championships, they wanted something special.

The crown is made of molded leather, like several of my other projects. It goes most of the way around, and then there’s elastic holding the ends together.

The gems are in all five colors of Magic spells: white, blue, black, red, green. They’re specifically intended to represent the five Moxen: pearl, sapphire, jet, ruby, and emerald. Interestingly, I couldn’t find a good blue cabochon for the sapphire. So, I took a different colored one, scraped the foil off the back, and painted the back with blue nail polish. It came out super well I think!

They are mounted on stylized lotuses, to represent the powerful Black Lotus, one of the most powerful spells in Magic, which is where ShotgunLotus gets their name.

The alcohol is similarly on a color theme, although some are more going with flavor than color. White is vodka, blue is Bombay Sapphire gin, black is Jägermeister, red is Fireball whiskey, and green is Barenjäger. Green might be a bit of a stretch, but bears and bees are both usually green creatures in Magic, so we’ll call it good.

Texture is added with fabric paint and a few rhinestones, and the whole thing is painted with gold acrylic paint.

Super fun project to work on! If you like watching people play Magic and get drunk, I recommend checking out ShotgunLotus. They run awesome tournaments that are hilarious to watch. :)
