Viola | Eternal Sonata
Worn at Anime Expo 2014, photo shoot soon
Excuse the poor archery form, lol. I now know how to shoot with a bow and arrow, except Viola’s arrows have only two fletchings, so I still don’t really know how to hold her arrows…
I forgot that I told myself I’d upload cosplay on here, so get ready for some backlog, lol.
Actually my friend is maknig a Windrunner cosplay for a convention in may and your bow looks kind of like hers, how did you make it?
shayslayer - It’s made from that pink insulation foam you can find at Home Depot, paper mache, and paint. Get lots of references, break the weapon down to simple shapes (this bow was in 4 pieces) and draw them out proportionate to whoever’s going to use it, cut pieces out from the foam, paper mache them, prime and paint, and glue pieces together if needed.
Note: Be careful if you use use spray paint as it may dissolve the foam if you didn’t paper mache and/or prime it well. Or use acrylic paint.
