WANTED: Everdeen arena bow (Hunger Games)
I'm looking to have this commissioned for LFCC which is on July 9th. I'm willing to pay quite a lot for an experienced prop maker to take this on for me. Would prefer to be able to pick it up either at LFCC or a nearby meeting point.
It doesn't need to be functional, just sturdy.
Note; Bow is a priority over the arrows or sheath, but if you can make these too please say so.

I don't really remember the bow from the movie so I could be wrong, but in the books it's a pretty standard long bow. I have two longbows and you can buy them off of ebay for £20-40 easily, especially if you're not worried about the quality of the shot you'd get from them.

Sorry if I'm remembering it badly

Back on my laptop now, so just uploading some references (:

Be careful buying real longbows... they're considered offensive weapons even without arrows...

I'd have offered to do this, but I'm actually not sure I could do a good job of it... Bows are tricky, and very thin profile bows with reverse curves are nigh on impossible without either looking tacky-fake or requiring pro bowmaker knowledge.

They are, in fact I've been told it's illegal to keep your bow and arrows together as that makes it an offensive weapon. I checked with MCM before starting to make Zelda's Light Bow and they're fine with bows as long as they are unstrung when not being used for photoshoots and a real arrow isn't loaded. So you could use prop arrows with a real bow or vice versa.

I'm making the bow and arrows now and the bow will be strung with elastic so it can't do any damage. I'd check with the event organisers to see what their rules are
