Well I want to make a bow for my Fran cosplay and realized that the bow is going to be almost as tall as I am. So I thought in order for me to walk with my prop and not worry about having to be in the way all time and unmanageable to handle during the con why not may it in a way that will make it fold in half and not so much of a hazard...that way its not in the way and I can have an awesome bow in it's full glory when it's time for photos ^_^! Sodoes anybody have any suggestions on how I can do this? Please and thanks in advanced!

Well, I really can't guarantee my suggestion will work, but it might put you on the right track. In order for it to fold in half, it need to have some form of hinge, correct? I looked around just a bit, and found this website:

Hopefully this'll be of some use to you! Good luck. :)
