Weapon Help
I'm going as Princess Zelda to the May Expo and, as usual I've left it to the last minute, I'm making her light bow and arrows. I wasn't sure of the best way of doing this. I have an archery set with a bow I'm happy to glue, paint and generally abuse. However, because of the way the bow straightens when unstrung I don't know how to add the detail. I had planned to use foam board to build the design around the bow but I'm not sure it'll work if I have to have it unstrung at any point. Any ideas?

Here's a photo reference: https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/s320x320/36290_386536498044211_100000635913372_1236690_71014497_n.jpg

A girl is blogging about making one here, however she's using a dowel rod and foam board without a bow as a base. I'm not sure whether I can do this as MCM want all bows unstrung when not in use for photos.
Her blog might give you an idea, though: http://plethoricpolymath.wordpress.com/

Hymmmm, I would recommend Kamui, she is an amazing cosplayer and she posts a lot of cosplay tutorials / videos mostly on props:


Most of the materials she uses for prop making can be found in Uk, so should be helpful with your small amount of time.

Wish you best of luck and have fun ~~~
