Condition: Not Set

18th September 2012: Re-wearing As this cosplay went down so well in May, I'm going to wear it in October :D

20th April 2012: Arrows 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.

3rd April 2012: 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!

19th February 2012: Revived I've revived this cosplay with some new ideas. I should hopefully have it ready for London's MCM in October 2012.

15th November 2010: Mask 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)

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!
