About this Costume
Construction Details:
The only patterns I used were a skirt pattern (that I modified), and I took apart a pair of gloves to get something of a pattern for the gloves. Everything else was built by me. The mask was sculpted in plastic and covered in fiberglass by Roy Harms over a resin cast of my face we made in 2006! He had to make the eye holes a little larger, and I only needed to cover it in fabric. For the quiver, I covered a document tube in craft foam and fake leather. The arrows are glued into a Styrofoam ball inside it (save one that has a foam tip!). The belt is craft foam and wire covered in spandex. The majority of the costume is miliskin.
Personal Thoughts:
I started a version of this costume in 2006, then after a series of events, I put it off...and put it off...and put it off. After a lot of pressure from some of my friends, I finally made it! (Just to know, I am aware that I am holding the bow backwards in early photos. Since the string is not on there to affect the curve of the bow, I had to improvise. -.-;;)

EDIT:: AGAIN, I know I am holding the bow backwards. The convention did not allow me to use the string as per their weapons policy. Since my bow is real, I had two choices: lose the string or don't have the bow. Well, as I can't very well be Arrowette without the weapon, I choice Option A. Being a recurve bow, when you remove the string, the tips point forward. As such, I spun it around so I could pantomime pulling an arrow back and have the ends pointing in the proper direction. I have yet to see any bow where the shape in convex when the arrow is drawn.
