Great to see this in real life, I love the fabric choice. Really enjoyed your masquerade too - made us believe you were actually re-loading your crossbow!

I've decided to re-position the arrows on my back. Hopefully it should make it easier to get through crowds! The main work now is to make sure the arrows are neat and tidy, along with finish the trousers.

Giant Crossbow

The crossbow is built on a rifle stock template. It's been extended with some 2x4 pine and wrapped in cloth (so as to avoid paying for paint). It's also collapse-able as the bow can be removed. Thankfully, it doesn't and cannot fire arrows!

I've revived this cosplay with some new ideas. I should hopefully have it ready for London's MCM in October 2012.

IT ARRIVED! :D Bought online and it's absolutely perfect! (As much as I wanted to make something like this, I still can't think in 3D and this was cheaper than the materials it would have cost to make one)
