The Queen of Fiesta Equestria will be wearing the Element of Magic Tiara:
This life sized replica of King Sombra's Crown can be worn on the head comfortably. All hand crafted!
The center band, spikes, and bottom pieces are all made from steel. The crest on the top, center of the crown is made of sterling silver and copper sheet. The gemstone in the center of the crest is hematite, set in a bezel setting. Those two slanted pieces of metal on the steel band were crafted from sterling silver sheet. All the pieces of the crown were put together through a combination of tack welding, and low temp soldering. The crest was painted red, and the steel pieces on the bottom of the crown were painted flat black. Afterwards, I applied two coats of matte finish lacquer to prevent the paint from scraping off or chipping away. As you can see from the back side picture, the crown has a strip of soft leather across the front so it can be worn comfortably, and it is also adjustable to fit almost any sized head.
If you have any other questions about the crafting process of this crown, feel free to ask!
In addition, this is the first time I've uploaded pictures that were taken with my new camera. In my opinion, there is an improvement in the picture quality, but do feel free to tell me what you think.

People are questioning the design of this crown. They believe that the side pieces on the bottom are part of his hair and not his crown. Here's a screenshot to prove otherwise: [link]
