Pennsic Impressions: Crowns

As mentioned in the court reports, TRM received new crowns at East Kingdom Court, as a gift from ICOD, made by Julian de la Pointe. They're really quite lovely, and I gather triple-plated with gold. But I have to admit that I don't think I've ever seen anything quite *so* gold before -- with the result that my immediate and lasting reaction was that they look distressingly like plastic to me. My brain just isn't used to real gold being quite that shiny.

(I'll get used to them, mind, and they're among the nicest crowns we've got. But it was damned disconcerting...)
